Sally Grenier answered:
Was she the listing agent? Sometimes agents don't want to work as a dual agent, or transaction broker (and some states won't allow it). Why not hire your own REALTOR as your Buyer's Agent?? This is the best way to buy a home. The listing agent is working for the seller, not you. ... more

Condo sales are still a little weak compared to the regular homes market, but there is some improvement overall. A number of factors are involved that effect the sale of a condo right now in the Ocean Isle Beach area, one of them being the development or plantation they are located in. I would be happy to go over the specific areas and condo's you may be interested in with you.

Currently there is nothing oceanfront for $250k but you could definitely find something on one of the Brunswick Islands in that price range. Please email me at if you would like more info.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

The easiest way is having your agent look in mls or contact the listing agent, if you are looking to buy without an agent you could call the listing agent doretcly to ask them.

Larry Story answered:

Trulia is a third party real estate website. So therefore it is fed information by other websites. As a broker I use several sites that feed into Trulia. One question to ask is when were the additions done and did you have permits pulled and inspections done? If it was just done then ask your agent to update your listing. For example if something changes on one of my listings I simply go to a different website and update it. Then in about 48 hours Trulia is updated. So your first move is to check with your agent that is who controls this.

Hope this helps,

Caroline York answered:
In Florida if a sales agent is selling there own personal property in VA they do not need to have a VA license to do so. If a NY agent owns property in FL and wants to sell it as a By owner again they do not have to be licensed. However, if anyone sells real property that is not their own without having the proper license in FL it is a third degree felony. That question is not a semi-legal it is 100% legal but the person to ask would be at the North Carolina Real estate Commission. Please note that a realtor can be licensed in more than one state at a time. ... more
