A sister-company to Northside Realty, BuySmart Realty is operated by Broker in Charge, Ernie Behrle of the Northside Realty Core Group.
Ernie has been a licensed REALTOR® in North Carolina since 1994. BuySmart came about as a result of Ernie's desire to try alternative listing methods and the willingness of Northside Realty's owners to not only allow this, but to provide him a company name. Ernie works with both residential sellers and buyers.
Ernie grew up on the east end of Long Island, NY, where he assisted running the family fishing station with over 50 rental boats. With such a diverse clientele, it was there he learned the golden rule of treating others as he would like to be treated. After graduating college, he spent 17 years with IBM until layoffs hit in 1994. Ernie decided to earn his real estate license, and spent 12 years with RE/MAX; where, he was inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame in 2005. In April of 2008, Ernie joined Northside Realty and has really enjoyed watching the company grow, plus being a part of a company with so many talented agents.
Ernie has been married for over 40 years to his wife, Pat. They have 3 grown children, all still living and working in the Raleigh area; along with, two beautiful daughter-in-laws, an amazing grand daughter, and another grand child on the way. Besides practicing real estate and spending time with family, Ernie and Pat are foster providers for the Wake County Animal Center, and have been since 2012. They have 5 fur-babies of their own, plus 2 cockatiels. Their home also backs up to both the Neuse River and Neuse River Trail, so they enjoy kayaking, fishing, biking (him) and running (her). They also love spending time at a family home at Ocean Isle Beach, NC, and being back in salt water!
