TCAR Partners with Fuquay-Varina Economic Development
TCAR, the Triangle Commercial Association of REALTORS®, announces today the integration of its commercial real estate exchange portal, Tacquire, into the Fuquay-Varina Economic Development Commission, Inc. (“FVEDC”) website. The site provides economic, business and community information for companies that are thinking of relocating within the Town of Fuquay-Varina, located in Wake County, North Carolina. Tacquire’s portal will provide visitors access to real-time property and listing data.
“Fuquay-Varina is home to over 1,800 small, medium and large companies. It includes the corporate headquarters of Fidelity Bank, Bob Barker Company, Patriot State Bank, Southbend, Apex Instruments and InServe Corporation, as well as major manufacturing facilities for John Deere Turf Care and TE Connectivity,” says Jim Seymour, FVEDC executive director. “As the community continues to grow, Tacquire’s integrated database of properties will provide easy-to-access, up-to-date information that is essential to attracting new businesses to the area.”
The Tacquire web portal tracks office, industrial, retail and specialty space available for lease across a 14-county region that includes the Triangle, as well as buildings and land being marketed for sale. The database is set up to be searchable by location, property type, price range and square footage. Results can be printed, converted to a PDF, or emailed.
“Economic growth in the Triangle region of North Carolina extends far beyond the big cities on I-40 corridor,” says Kathy Gigac, Tacquire president. “Communities like Fuquay-Varina offer growing residential populations, a diverse and well-educated workforce, as well as convenient access to national and international transportation and distribution hubs.”
This is the eight partnership TCAR has entered into since introducing Tacquire in 2010. In addition to working with FVEDC, the organization has integrated its Tacquire database into the following organization’s websites:
