Cathy SheafferBroker-In-Charge | REALTOR®


My husband and I moved our three small children from Pennsylvania to Emerald Isle in 1988. There were only 800 permanent residents, and homes on the ocean side could be purchased for under $100,000! Emerald Isle has blossomed since then! I joined Bluewater in 1989, and have really enjoyed working with and helping so many great Buyers and Sellers over the last 32+ years. In 2016 I was moved to the Broker-In-Charge position in the Emerald Isle office and I manage about 25 super, knowledgeable, and professional agents, whom I love working with. The owners of Bluewater, Woody Warren, and Sherrell Futral are constantly striving to give us the best tools and atmosphere to work in, which has kept us on top of the sales and rental markets in this area for years.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, which has grown to 10 grandchildren so far, playing tennis, church activities, and learning sign language. Boating and water activities in this area have also been fun over the years. Prior to moving here, I was a PE teacher, and a swim coach at a Division 2 University in Pennsylvania, and have been inducted into 3 different Hall of Fames for my swimming career there. Please call me and I will be glad to help you get started with your real estate needs here at the North Carolina Coast. It is a great place to live! 


After college, I worked as a stewardess on a Barefoot Windjammer Cruise Ship out of the Bahamas.

I was a 16 time All American swimmer in college in the '70s, 4-time National Champion, and held 2 National records.

I met Muhammed Ali in 1978 when he was training for his fight against Leon Spinks. My friend and I got to hang out with him two times with just the three of us for hours each time!
