About Me

Prior to pursuing his career in real estate, Furr served three years as the head manager at Chantis Italian Restaurant in Durham, North Carolina. It is one of the most popular restaurants in the local area, and he learned a wide variety of skills that still serve him well even to this day. He got an inside look at what prime real estate could do for a restaurant, and he learned firsthand the importance of finding the best possible location in the area. At the same time, he knows that the location of a restaurant will only go so far. He also learned just how important it was to develop people skills. He interacted with people of all backgrounds as the head manager at Chantis, and he used his experience and skills to build a successful career as a real estate broker.

Eventually, he decided to transition into the real estate world, joining the Block & Associates Realty team. In his current capacity, Joshua Eugene Furr works closely with homeowners, landlords, and renters, helping to facilitate the rentals of condos, townhouses, and single-family homes throughout the greater Research Triangle Park area. He has lived in the region for more than 30 years, and he has seen a lot of changes take place. The area has become much more popular, major companies have moved in, and real estate values have changed quickly. He enjoys his fast-paced career, and he has learned the ins and outs of each of the individual neighborhoods.

For example, he understands that many familyes like to live in the Green Hope region of Cary because of the strong school system. He also understands that Preston Village continues to provide fantastic homes in the perfect location for people moving into the local area. He understands that old Cary, right around the old Cary Towne Center and Triangle Aquatic Center, remains a popular location, particularly with major new employers moving in. He also realizes that many people like to live closer to Raleigh, and the real estate near Crossroads is still very valuable. He uses all of his knowledge to help investors, potential homeowners, and renters find the perfect location to meet their needs, regardless of whether they want to work in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, or Durham.

Even though he has an intimate understanding of the real estate market, he knows he must also be an effective property manager. During the past 30 years, he has learned what it takes to maintain townhouses, single-family homes, and condos. His goal is not only to take care of houses, but also to maintain their value. He stays on top of the latest trends in the industry, encouraging his clients to invest accordingly. It is important not only for keeping renters happy but also for maximizing the property's value. His unique client-first approach has significantly impacted the local real estate market, particularly at the Research Triangle Park, which has changed so quickly during the past few decades. His dedication has earned him the title of the #1 Independent Leading Broker in Wake County for 12 consecutive years.

Even though he pours all of his energy into his career, he still takes the time to enjoy the charm of the local area. For example, Joshua Furr knows that the Triangle is an exceptional area for people who love college sports. He is an avid sports enthusiast, always following the UNC Tar Heels, Duke Blue Devils, and NC State Wolfpack. There is nothing quite like living in the Triangle, particularly during college basketball season. He absolutely loves the buzz of the local area, and he keeps up with all of the major sports teams.

He also works hard to maintain a solid work-life balance, consistently getting back to the local community that has supported him for many years. He is a dedicated Christian who spends significant time at his local church, participating in numerous community service projects that help underserved people. He also works hard to care for the local environment by donating his time to various nonprofit organizations.

Finally, he also enjoys traveling. By exploring other places, he learns what makes the Triangle unique. He loves to visit the beach, hike local mountains, and explore everything the region has to offer. He also works hard to maintain strong relationships with his friends and family members. Maintaining a solid work-life balance, he comes to work daily with a renewed focus on his clients and career.
