I discovered Emerald Isle while vacationing here in 1991 with my husband and our two youngest children. We loved it and bought a vacation home the first time we were here. Two years later, we decided to make it our permanent home. Both Ken and I grew up near the ocean and were excited to be back. I was a licensed realtor in Maryland since 1976, and I decided that it would be much more fun selling houses at the beach. It was a good move for our whole family. My husband and youngest son operate our family restaurants, “Kathryn’s Bistro and Martini Bar” and “Jackie’s American Grille,” both located in Emerald Isle. My only daughter Kelly is a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill and is now a practicing attorney in Raleigh.
This is my 20th year selling in Emerald Isle, and I love it! I meet people from all over and help them buy and sell their vacation homes, investment properties, and full time residences. I also have quite a few military customers with the close proximity to two bases. I take my job very seriously and make myself available to my customers almost anytime. I know that their transactions are very important to them, and I want them to be able to contact me whenever they need me. I also feel that I need to know as much as possible about this market and to give the best customer service possible–even long after the sale!
I have been honored as Bluewater’s Top Producer every year since 1999 as well as Carteret County’s Top Producer for six years. In today’s challenging Emerald Isle real estate market, selecting the right real estate agent to represent you is crucial. It can make all of the difference in the world.
