Although I am familiar with the real estate market in Carteret and Western Onslow Counties, I specialize in the island communities along Bogue Banks, Western Carteret County, the town of Swansboro, and most importantly, Emerald Isle. My expertise is in primary residences, second homes, investment properties, and vacant land. As a retired serviceman, I feel pretty comfortable assisting military families relocating to the area. I served 26 years with the United States Army, retiring in 1994 with the rank of Colonel. I have been a licensed real estate broker in North Carolina since 1978 and began my career in real estate in 1994, following my retirement from the military. Since 1994, I have been associated with Bluewater Real Estate as a broker and have consistently been a multi-million dollar producer in sales volume.
My professional education and designations include: Graduate, LaSalle University, Class of 1968, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration; Graduate, North Carolina State University, Class of 1975, Master of Public Affairs; Graduate of the Realtors Institute, awarded the Graduate Realtors Institute GRI designation; and award of the Accredited Buyer Representative Designation (ABR). I am actively involved in the community as a member of the Carteret County Chamber of Commerce, VFW Post 9960, and St Peter’s By The Sea Episcopal Church. Lastly, I have an in-depth knowledge of the market area, having first visited in 1968, bought my first property in 1976, and built my first cottage at the beach in 1983. I have lived and worked at the beach full-time since 1994. Since entering the real estate business, my motto has been: ” Larry Lupus, a REALTOR in Pursuit of Excellence, and Committed to Quality Service on the Crystal Coast.” This motto reflects how I approach my profession and the service I provide my clients!
