Thomas 'Tip' Iuliucci Agent
I am Team Leader and Realtor for the “RDU Homes You” team at Northside Realty Inc., and have been Northside’s #1 agent (number of transactions) since 2009. I am also president of the RDU Homes For You Corporation.
My specialties are short sales, foreclosures, seller financing and other advanced investor transactions, and as a buyers’ agent, my previous mortgage lending experience comes in handy. I have the Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource designation from the National Association of Realtors.
I love real estate because I find the whole process fascinating like a puzzle. No two deals are alike, and constantly meeting new people from all walks of life keeps things fresh. I can never say I have seen everything; there’s always a new encounter.
I bring an unusual mix of experience to the table, and I find that all of my past jobs, no matter how different, have taught me things that translate across industries and careers. I have an associate’s degree in music from Sandhills College, and worked for many years in different facets of the music industry, including performing. Those who know about those days sometimes refer to me as the “Rock Star Realtor.”
In 1988, I joined pioneering mortgage broker Midstate Financial Services in Fayetteville, NC, and within a couple years, I led a profitable team that managed the company’s business in several states.
In the mid-90s, I took a leap of faith to run the sales team for then-fledgling Creative Financial Services, building them into a massive mortgage powerhouse and later founding Millennium Mortgage Group with a few investors. After leaving Millennium, I returned to my roots, working with a former supervisor from Midstate at Pinnacle Mortgage in Fayetteville. I re-located to Raleigh in 2005 (following family) and joined Premiere Lending Corporation while studying for my real estate license.
As the mortgage market dwindled, I dove head-first into working with buyers and sellers, using my extensive mortgage experience to help them solve real-time problems and needs. As an agent for Northside Realty, my goal is to use my background and knowledge to help my clients find the solutions to their needs.
I live in the Crabtree/Laurel Hills area of Raleigh with my fiancée Heather, who also works with me and just got her realtor’s license. We enjoy getaways to the beach, Hurricanes hockey games and spending time with her two children, Julia and Kevin, who live with us, along with our cats Stella, Shadow and Tigger. We have fun while working and try to make the buying, selling, and financing experience for our clients as painless as we can.
