Tonya Meeks Jordan
Durham native Tonya Meeks Jordan was raised in Siler City and has lived and worked throughout the Triangle and Triad areas before coming back to set down roots in Chatham County. She has been a successful small business owner with strong ties to the community for over 20 years through her Salon. Tonya has had a lifelong passion for real estate, renovating and remodeling several of her own homes and staging properties for friends and family over the years. She finally realized her dream of pursuing that passion professionally when she became a Realtor in 2019.
Because Tonya understands that buying a home is an investment in your future, she is invested in guiding her clients along their path to home ownership, working hard to personalize the experience to suit the unique needs of each individual. She devotes herself just as enthusiastically to selling homes, and has extensive experience with staging as well as contracts. She is committed to keeping up with current trends in the market and brings her staging talents to each property in an effort to maximize earning potential. As a listing agent, all of Tonya’s homes have been under contract within 48 hours with the majority selling above asking price. Her focus on bringing her best to each client, whether buyer or seller, has consistently earned her five star reviews.
When she isn’t working, Tonya enjoys time with her family and friends, including her dog Lacey, frequently traveling to the lakes and costal regions of NC. She has also donated a good amount of her free time over the years to volunteering at local schools, lending her talents and energy to the Living Literature program and fundraising efforts.
Chatham County native Lynn Farrar has strong ties to her family and community. She appreciates the many joys that local living has to offer and hopes to help others find that same sense of home and community.
Lynn decided to return to school and get her real estate license to do just that. She believes that the right home in a good community is a strong foundation for a happy life, and she very much wants to put her knowledge and enthusiasm to work helping clients find their happy place.
When she’s not working, Lynn spends her down time with her family. They enjoy exploring their neighbourhood on evening walks before settling in to spend evenings together. Trips to the beach are also a frequent family activity as it gives Lynn a chance to get her toes in the sand at her happy place away from home.
A Chatham County native, Crystal was born and raised in the Siler City/Silk Hope area. Having lived here all her life, she has an extensive knowledge of the local community and the surrounding area.
Crystal served as an educator in Chatham and Lee County schools for 19 years before pursuing a career in real estate. Not only does this provide her with unique and extensive knowledge of local school districts and family resources, it has given her the opportunity to develop a wide network of connections to call upon when working to meet the needs of her clients.
Crystal’s years as an educator required adaptability, and helped to develop listening and creative problem solving skills. She brings these strengths to her second career in her efforts to help her clients achieve their best outcome.
When not working, Crystal is active in a variety of ministries within her church. She’s a proud mom to a rescue fur baby chiweenie named TG, and enjoys trying new recipes with family and friends.
A Randolph County native, Robin has spent the majority of her lifetime in the Liberty area. A graduate of UNC-Greensboro, Robin spent 10+ years working in the Randolph County School System before transitioning into the world of new construction and real estate. Robin received her real estate license in 2019. She prides herself in combining knowledge of the surrounding area with her love of helping others reach their goals.
Robin enjoys guiding clients through the process of buying and/or selling real estate. Her goal is to go above and beyond to make the entire process as smooth and stress-free as possible. She brings with her a firm knowledge of real estate and a willingness to roll up her sleeves and work in order to help her clients, whatever that looks like in each unique situation.
Because of her deep-rooted ties to the area, Robin feels very strongly about giving back to the community. Each year, she selects a project to support by donating a portion of her real estate transactions. This means each client she helps in the buying and selling process, has a ripple effect that reaches far beyond the closing table. Last year, Robin was able to donate a much-needed piece of medical equipment called a Caring Cradle to the Cone Health Women’s and Children’s Center at Moses Cone Hospital. This piece of equipment will afford families the priceless gift of time. Currently, Robin is working towards sponsoring multiple veterans to experience the honor they deserve with a trip with Triad Honor Flight.
Robin loves spending time with her family and as the mom to three, aged 12, 18 and 23, she jokes that there is never a dull moment. She also has a host of four-legged family members that keep her busy–dogs, cats, goats, cows and one horse. She enjoys spending as much time outside as possible, riding the Harley with her husband, and traveling with her family.
