I edit scholarly books for a living, working with faculty members in the humanities and social sciences from the U.S., Canada, and Europe. I love living in Chapel Hill, and I also love getting to know new places and new people.

The house worked out wonderfully for us (two adults, our school-age daughter, a cat, and a dog). We were very comfortable in the house, which had lovely furnishings and was in great shape. We enjoyed the stroll into town (and sometimes used the bus, which stopped regularly nearby), to get to campus or enjoy the downtown restaurants. The owner was very easy to work with, and the neighborhood was very pleasant and quiet. Excellent Tanya Leise 6/29/2016 12:11:00 PM
