Land Services

“Buy land. They’re not making it anymore.” Many of our clients agree with this sentiment from Mark Twain, and we specialize in finding strategic land investments ranging from single lots to large, multi-parcel assemblages.

At NAI Tri Properties, we distinguish ourselves from our competitors with our ability to provide seasoned, professional judgment based on several decades of experience in the Triangle and Eastern North Carolina real estate market. We are skilled professional brokers who will handle all aspects of the assignment, acting as the focus for all communication and delivering to our client all possible transactions. We will provide evaluation and opinion as to the merit of all transactions. We are experienced negotiators who can guide our clients to obtain the best results, and we have the capability to handle the project from beginning to end.

We know the Triangle market inside and out and there is no one more trusted with land brokerage in the Triangle region NAI Tri Properties. That knowledge enables us to find valuable land opportunities — including “off market” deals – and assist clients until the property is sold or developed.

Whether you are buying or selling, one acre or 100 acres, our team has the expertise you need. Market research, value analysis, due diligence, deal structuring, vertical development and much more.

As a privately held company, NAI Tri Properties also has the ability to co-invest in land projects alongside our clients. We are a full-service real estate company that can identify potential buyers or find partners interested in working with us to develop the property.

Why Tri Properties?


Tri Properties manages most of my real estate development activities - zoning, permitting, construction, leasing, property management, etc. - but the greatest value has been in the area of land acquisition and sales. They have helped me get the maximum value from land sales and ensure that projects get closed in a timely manner.
