  • Grew up riding horses, mucking stalls, and walking the fox hounds for the Moore County Hunt Club in the summers.

  • Trained as a body builder.
  • Family owned a steak house restaurant in Georgia, where she waited on such notables as Jimmy Stewart, Ed Asner, and Jon Voight.
  • Was an elementary school teacher’s aide for several years.
  • While caring for her asthmatic son in the hospital, this agent met Barbara Walters doing a benefit fund raiser at the same hospital.
  • Has survived (thankfully) being robbed at gunpoint, twice!   Once after being followed home from the theatre (robbers got $50.00) and another while working in a bank.
  • This agent comes from a flying family, and spent many hours on the tarmac, taking flying lessons from time to time, but mostly enjoying the ride.  Mother, father, brother, and husband were all pilots.
  • Married high school sweetheart, who later became a pilot for the golfer, Davis Love.

National Open House Weekend

There are plenty of buyers ready to take advantage of the record-breaking affordability conditions this spring. To kick off the busy season, Intracoastal Realty is teaming up with the National Association of REALTORS® and holding open houses this weekend, April 28-29, for Nationwide Open House Weekend.

Buyers, it’s the time to be a part of something big! Curious why you should participant in this weekend’s Open House event? We’ll give you three reasons why:

1.Open House Weekend is a great opportunity for buyers to shop for a new home from a wide selection while interest rates are still low and affordability is at an all-time high. After all, most economists say that it’s not a matter of “if” mortgage rates will go up, it’s “when.”

2.REALTORS® are opening the doors to home ownership by simplifying the house hunting process to you. Open House Weekend is a time saver, because it offers buyers a way to visit a large number of homes in a short period of time.

3.This event offers buyers the chance to see NC REALTORS® in action. Open House Weekend is a fantastic way for buyers to find an approachable, knowledgeable expert that can help them navigate the home-purchasing process.

You can view our open houses for this weekend and any other time on IntracoastalRealty.com
