My name is Carrie McClure. You're here with me at Holden Beach, North Carolina. I just wanted to tell you a little bit about myself and why I love selling real estate in Brunswick County. I grew up in the mountains of Georgia in a little small town called Clayton. I grew up on lakes there, fishing every day with my dad, a lot of the freshwater things with waterfalls and that type of thing. And I used to come to Ocean Isle Beach
every year with my family for seven days and absolutely loved it there. Later on in life, family brought me here to North Carolina and somehow I ended up at Holden Beach, which I love. I was a teacher for 13 years, assistant teaching and in the office, and I decided to make a move into real estate just because I absolutely love talking to people and being at the beach, and showing homes here on Holden Beach as well as Ocean Isle, Oak Island and this area. It is very important to know your buyers and most of the time it's someone that's definitely interested in the water, maybe who has a boat or just has a love for the ocean. With me growing up fishing in the mountains of Georgia, I had that love and then it soon turned into a love for fishing on the ocean. So my husband and I do some tournaments fishing here and we live here on the water on the Intracoastal Waterway in a canal close to Holden Beach so that we can be close to what we love. One of the things that I guess drew me to real estate was just loving the homes here and the views every day. And definitely here at Holden and Ocean Isle, you can have a view of sunset or sunrises almost every day. It seems like even on the cloudiest of days right before sunset, you get to see at least the glimpse of it! With tournament fishing, I have gotten to know a lot of people here and I've found that there's a lot of people that love to be on the water and it's important to them to have water access or deep water canals. That's one of the things that I love showing here as well. I don't have a specific love for working with buyers or listing. I absolutely love both parts of it because I can get to know homeowners when I'm listing to sell and also buyers and what they're looking for in this area. I try to take my time and figure out what's important family-wise, the size of the homes they may need and also the location because location is very important. I also like to pay attention to details with flooding or any issues that may arise on the ocean or on the Intracoastal Waterway and make that a priority as well. If you're looking for a home here at Holden Beach, Ocean Isle, Oak Island, and anywhere in Brunswick County, maybe even Wilmington, give me a call and I will be glad to show it to you.
