Teresa Daughtry Principal/Broker
Teresa grew up in Johnston County and has lived in Smithfield for twenty-four years. Beginning at a young age she worked in her parents' various businesses and learned the importance of a strong work ethic to achieving success. Always ambitious, her early exposure to an entrepreneurial life led her down the road of self employment and business ownership. Eventually she saw real estate as the path she wanted to follow and she obtained her license. After a number of years of success on the residential side of the business, she decided she wanted to challenge herself further and transition into the commercial arena. She began by getting an educational foundation in commercial real estate. Coupling this with her outgoing personality, drive and "local girl" knowledge of the region and its "players" has made for a successful transition. With all the changes that have occurred during her fifteen years in real estate, she notes there is one thing that has remained constant; how you treat your client. Working honestly and with integrity to make business smooth and successful for everyone, always leaves her fulfilled. She is active in her community as a member of the Central Johnston Rotary Club, Smithfield-Selma Chamber of Commerce and Town of Smithfield Planning Board. She is blessed to have the full support of her family for all of her endeavors. When she is not after the next listing, lease or sale, she enjoys time with her grandchildren or hangs out the "gone fishin" sign and heads down to her and her husband Otis's beach house where four generations often gather for fun.
Jim Perricone Principal/Broker
Jim is a transplanted "Yankee" having grown up on Long Island, NY. He graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and followed it with a Masters Degree in Health Care Administration from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. After graduating Xavier he spent over twenty years in senior level administrative positions, including CEO, in hospitals from Massachusetts to Michigan. During that time he led the development of a replacement hospital from conception to opening and the creation of a thirty-five acre health park. After deciding to leave hospital administration, he pursued consulting for non-profit organizations and developed a marketing business on the emerging Internet. Ultimately he decided that real estate is where his true passion lay and obtained his license. He has pursued the commercial side of the business from the beginning and enjoys bringing the experiences and lessons from his prior careers to help achieve results for clients. Many may find the often long cycle times for commercial real estate transactions to be discouraging. But for him there is a great deal of satisfaction derived from persisting over the long haul to bring a deal to a successful conclusion. Jim, as past Secretary and past President, is an active member of the Clayton Morning Rotary Club and is also a member of the Clayton Chamber of Commerce, currently serving on the Five Year Planning Committee. He and his wife Sara reside in Clayton and when he isn’t chasing real estate deals, he’s chasing either grand children or golf balls.
Marina Cashion Broker/Property Manager
Marina was born in Mexico, but grew up in Illinois and California before moving with her family to North Carolina in 2001. Over the years, she held various positions in retail and health care. Her first exposure to real estate came as a leasing agent, then property manager for two apartment communities in Raleigh. This experience along with advice from family members who achieved success in real estate, fostered her desire to pursue a real estate career. Her goals are to consistently provide optimal service to her clients and eventually to invest in commercial real estate. Marina is best described as person who commits to whatever she pursues. Always first is her family, second are her real estate clients and not to be forgotten, her community, where she currently gives back as a volunteer with the SPCA. When not pursuing the preceding, she can be found engaged in various outdoor activities or in a fitness completion. Regardless of what she may be doing, she is always smiling.
