Who knew when the Corona Virus hit the country that real estate would do so well in the midst of all that stress? But our changing work and school landscapes have made it possible for more people to work at home, so many are making big changes geographically. Others are buying second homes on the coast because they can escape to them more often. So while some important dreams may be on hold (like big events, and visiting older relatives), others are being realized sooner. We can no sooner put a mid-priced coastal home on the market than it's sold. Even some luxury homes are going very quickly. The downside is we don't have enough inventory for everyone who wishes to move here! 

What exactly attracts people to the Crystal Coast? It's not just the beach itself. It's the outdoor life in general, and the freedom of movement and fresh air that affords you. There are miles of walking trails, biking trails, kayaking trails; and numerous ferries linking islands and mainlands. There's boating, and fishing and shelling, and great restaurants and shops in quaint historic towns at either end of the span of the Crystal Coast. You could explore for a decade and not see it all.

And then there's the weather: Winters are mild, and in fact are the best time to go for sunrise and sunset walks, as the sun rises and sets over the ocean on our south facing island from about October through April or May. Summers can get hot, but who cares when you can cool off in the water!

So whether you rent for a week or so, and take a look around first, or are ready to buy, I'd love to show you what is available. I can first hook you up with a subscription on the MLS. Just let me know. That way you can catch properties the minute they come on the market. Check out the website and get some ideas of which area you'd enjoy living in the most!

And local folks, here's the thing: If your life is going through a transition, I would like to hear your story and show you how I might position your home for sale and make that important life change happen more smoothly. 

And finally, when it comes to showings, until we have the ALL clear, we will still:   

  • Use best practices to keep you and me, and everyone involved in a transaction safe. I can explain in detail what that means, should we engage in a transaction together.
  • Work extra hard if you need to search virtually to make sure you get all the extra info you need to make the right choice. And I will always...
  • Negotiate skillfully for a win-win for all parties concerned.
  • Support you every step of the way, up to closing and beyond.

A Story of Walls and Water

Here on the NC coast, we are flanked by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and numerous bodies of water on the other: estuaries, sloughs, the Intracoastal Waterway, rivers, marshes, sounds, you name it, we've got it. Our land mass is quite literally stitched together with water. That reality scares some people. Add to that the fact that the planet is warming, and sea levels are rising, and the future looks like one long series of battles between earth and sky. Nevertheless, some of us are stubborn. We want to live near the ocean (my source of spiritual centering), no matter what. And some of us, I am one of them, also feel committed to working on changing human behavior in relation to the planet…
