As a native North Carolinian, I grew up with a "Go to the Beach" mentality. In high school, many of my friends had places all up and down the beaches from Wilmington to Myrtle Beach. I loved coming to the beach in the summer. After I graduated from Western Carolina University and I started teaching school, I could only come in the summer but I came as often as I could...even in the winter. I bought my first investment property in 1985. It was nothing fancy but I bought a lot for $6,000 and bought an old mobile home for $5,000, remodeled it, and pulled it to the beach. The property was sold three years later for a profit. I have continued to buy & sell, even in today's market. When I retired and moved to the beach permanently, I went to work with Coldwell Banker. It gave me a chance to use my experiences in investing to assist other people. I know the area, and I try to help my clients find the best property within their price range. My clients have said that I gave service above and beyond any agent that they have worked with in the past. You will find that I am friendly and professional, and I am licensed in NC/SC so I can assist in a home purchase in the coastal area.
