Wes Blaylock is a native of Wilson, North Carolina, and also lived in Durham, Chapel Hill, and Rocky Mount before establishing roots in Raleigh in 2002. Prior to real estate, Wes worked in environmental consulting for more than a decade, where he conducted property inventories for the EPA Brownfields program, performed environmental assessments, and helped clients with property transactions. This work led Wes to recognize his strength and passion for residential real estate, where he enjoys helping clients realize the true potential in homes.
An N.C. State graduate, Wes enjoys rooting for the Pack, woodworking, and Raleigh’s brewery scene. He married his college sweetheart, Leigh, who hails from the western part of the state. They live near downtown Raleigh with their twins, June and Cole, and mutt, Bernie.
Wes Blaylock was a pleasure to work with during our search for the perfect home in Raleigh. Not only didn't he make it easy to navigate the process of being a first-time home buyer, but he made sure we were comfortable with the decisions that we made along the way, without pressuring us to commit to something that wasn't right for us. Wes went above and beyond when checking the condition of each home we toured, which was a huge weight off our shoulders, and made the "biggest purchase you'll ever make" even more exciting!

My husband and I hired Wes in the purchase of our first home. He was extremely patient with us (over 6 months) as we looked at a variety of areas (Apex, Cary, Raleigh) and price ranges ($300k-$600k). He was also instrumental in helping us find our mortgage lender (who we loved) and home inspectors. I turned to Wes in this process because I knew he was a person of integrity and would be honest with us and wouldn't rush us into something we couldn't afford, would regret, etc. Ultimately, his patience and knowledge of the real estate market led us to purchase a home we absolutely love and could see us living in for many years to come. Not a day goes by that my husband and I don't say "wow, we really found the right house for us!" I'm positive that would not have been possible without Wes. Thank you, Wes!

We had the pleasure of working with Wes - both for buying and selling our home. Truly, throughout the process, both my husband and I - who had bought and sold with other realtors - were incredibly impressed with Wes' professionalism, expertise, and ultimately - knowledge of the market. He was, explicitly, the reason we currently live in our dream home, and were able to easily transition from our previous residence. We can't say enough wonderful things about Wes, and his knowledge as realtor. We recommend him to anyone who asks!"

Wes was there for me, from start to finish, when I bought my new house. He made himself available at all times to answer questions and to help guide me through the process. Having bought a house 7 years ago, I thought I knew most everything. But so much changes from year to year that I would’ve been totally lost without having him there. He let me know from the beginning what to expect, when to expect it, what to prepare for, and what I needed to do--and when.
When it came to selling my old place, Wes came through for me with suggestions and advice on how to approach the market. I couldn’t be happier with either side of home ownership. He’s a knowledgeable straight-shooter and really works for his clients.
I thought I'd be a renter for life--no houses in the area really "spoke" to me, as it were, and the whole mess of buying my first home seemed daunting and too complicated to bother. But Wes found a listing that he knew would fit not just what I wanted but who I am. He walked me through the process with the infinite patience of a new father of twins and I always felt he was putting my best interests ahead of the sale. Now I'm in the perfect fixer-upper and we people come over for the first time I'm used to hearing "Yup. This house is you." I literally couldn't have done that without Wes.
Our home search was full of intense competition from other buyers. Only with Wes' experience, knowledge, and responsiveness on our side were we fortunate to find a home that fits our family during this aggressive market. To top it off our home sold in record time and above asking price with Wes guiding our decisions down the right path. Feel free to call on him for a trusted agent who will exceed your expectations.

Wes was wonderful to work with. As a first time home buyer, my husband and I were a little hesitant as of where to start. Once we met Wes he put us at ease. He was positive about our timeline of wanting to buy, along with our budget and desired area, and he worked hard to help us find the right place. I am confident that the process was made easier because of his hard work and commitment to helping us find a home. He was honest with what he thought was good and bad about the places we saw and helped us make decisions that sealed the deal with the sellers. If and when we are looking again, we will work with Wes no questions asked.

We had the pleasure of working with Wes Blaylock on the sale of our home. The service and personal attention provided by Wes is unmatched. Timing was everything for our family as we worked to coordinate the sale with the construction of a new home. Wes ensured that everything worked out seamlessly. Real estate transactions are incredibly overwhelming experiences to go through - Wes answered every phone call, no matter the time of day, and provided us with valuable and thoughtful advice. Wes' approach to real estate is one in which he takes on your goals as his own, recognizing the huge impact a real estate transaction has on the future of you and your family. We consider ourselves lucky to have worked with Wes Blaylock and highly endorse him to all future sellers and buyers.

Wes did an outstanding job in helping us purchase the perfect home in what was already a tight and competitive market. As first time buyers we were anxious and intimidated going into this process and Wes was immediately able to make us feel comfortable and confident. Wes’ intuition, knowledge of the market, and enthusiasm helped us to remain calm and make decisions without any second thoughts. Without his help we would not have been able to realize the full potential of our budget and end up with a deal that gave us a property better than we could have imagined. We were also able to SAVE money! We love our house and highly recommend Wes without reservation!

I bought my first house through Wes. He took the time to answer all my emails and questions in a timely and professional manner. No matter what time of day. Buying a first home is a huge step in an adult's life and Wes made it as painless as possible! I would recommend Wes to anyone who is in the market for a new home; he knows the area and gives good insight into the Raleigh marketplace. I thank Wes for finding me a great house in a great neighborhood.
