My name is Lorna Riggs. I relocated to Emerald Isle on the beautiful Crystal Coast with my husband in 1989, leaving my 1st career as a Physician Assistant in Winston-Salem, NC. We pursued our entrepreneurial dream of creating and operating a specialty outdoor retail business in a place we love. Island Rigs Kayak and Clothing Company were born, grew, and thrived for 16 years. At the store vacationing customers, enthralled by the area, were often as interested in my local knowledge of the coastal neighborhoods, as they were in our products and services.
I became a licensed Real Estate Broker in 2005. Since then, I have familiarized myself with communities throughout Carteret and Onslow Counties. I obtained the GRI (Graduate of Realtor Institute); SFR (Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource); CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) & RSPS (Resort & Second-home Property Specialist) designations to better serve my clients. I look forward to working with you in buying or selling your full-time residence, vacation home, or investment property. Your satisfaction is my goal. It will be a privilege to use my professional skills, knowledge of current market conditions, and attention to detail in helping you, your friends, and your family.
