Having relocated to the area from High Point, NC, in 1986, I consider myself a “local” to the Emerald Isle area. I also have deep roots with Bluewater Real Estate, being employed as a receptionist at the company’s conception in 1987. I’m proud to say I was Bluewater’s first employee! While continuing to sell and list real estate as a full-time broker, I have held management positions as the Broker-in-Charge of the Emerald Isle office and General Sales Manager of Bluewater’s other two locations in Atlantic Beach and Cape Carteret. After several years of wearing three hats, I am back focused on the basics of real estate brokerage, selling, and listing residential real estate along the beautiful Crystal Coast.
Over the past 29+ years, I have consistently been a multi-million dollar producer throughout the varying market conditions. I take my real estate profession seriously. I am a member of the National Association of Realtors and our local Carteret County Association of Realtors (CCAR). In addition, I believe strongly that continuing education and training is imperative to maintain professionalism, skills, and industry knowledge. I am a graduate of the Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers (CRB), a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) Realtor, and a Residential & Resort Specialist (RRS) designations. My most recent professional designation is the Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) Certification.
My family moved to Emerald Isle in 1995 & my two sons, Brian & Tyler, have enjoyed growing up at the beach. Both attended the Carteret County school system and are graduates of UNC-Chapel Hill & the Kenan-Flagler Business School. Go Heels! Brian married the lovely Kadie Frazier of the Cayman Islands & has since blessed me with a precious granddaughter, Arabella. (Oh my, how she has stolen my heart!) All reside in Emerald Isle, so I’m happy for quality family time. My favorite hobbies include walking the beach in search of sea glass (I have quite a collection), boating, working out with strength training & conditioning, cooking, reading & maintaining my beach rentals. Live music events, dining & just plain socializing with great friends & family are priceless fun to me. I am currently serving a three-year term on the Board of Directors for the Carteret County Chamber of Commerce. My past volunteer work with the Carteret County Domestic Violence Program (CCDVP) was very rewarding, where I served two terms as Vice-President. I love to talk about Crystal Coast real estate & especially conversations about “remember when we could have bought that property for $**!!@@!!”. I call Emerald Isle “home” and enjoy sharing my love of the area with others. Call me when you need any real estate information or advice pertaining to Crystal Coast Real Estate. I love meeting new people – first representing them as my clients and then calling them my friends.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
