Hello there!

I am trying to help my cousin ID this plant in her garden. She lives in Raleigh and just purchased the house.

Any thoughts as to what this pretty pink gem is..

It looks like it could be Spanish Bluebell (hyacinthoides hispanica) 'Azalea', but definitely Hyacinth related.

Thanks Ralph...

It looks like Spanish Bluebells are either blue or white...??
At least that it what I saw..

This ones looks like it is a varigated shades of pink...???

It's a hyacinth. Sometimes they weaken over time and don't form the nice full flower heads. I have plenty of them in my yard that look just like this.
