Team Updates | kudos and welcomes
Eve Martin is originally from the Chesapeake/Virginia Beach area but spent most of her young life in SW Florida.
"The beach has always been in my blood," she says. "I moved to Oak Island 11 years ago and cannot imaging living anywhere else. After moving to Oak Island, the next logical step for me professionally was to become a Realtor. I love listening to and understanding my clients wants and needs, making them happy, one home at a time. My husband is a hometown Oak Island boy and he, my stepson, our labradoodle Brodie and cat Annie love spending time with friends and family and anything outdoors."
