Updates and Happenings from beautiful Southeastern Coastal North Carolina.

“It is a comfortable feeling to know that you stand on your own ground. Land is about the only thing that can't fly away.”
- Anthony Trollope, English Novelist

What's Up | where to watch some football

Walk-On's Sports Bistreaux, at 3710 Oleander Drive, is near Independence Mall. With a ton of TVs, this spot is good for viewing any game. - Paul Charles, KBT Client Services

Pittsburgh fans go to Joe's Oasis (6400 Carolina Beach Road). Besides great football, Joe's has the best pierogis around. - Mary Ellen Slugg, Director of Operations

For NC State games and a good crowd, go to Bill's Brewing Company at 4238 Market Street. - Fred Teachey, Broker/Realtor®

Fans of DA Bears often gather at Goat & Compass (710 N. 4th). This bar has been in the Brooklyn neighborhood for decades before the area became trendy. Lots of fun and real local feel. The Copper Penny (109 Chestnut Street) is full of Eagles fans during football season. Go for the game and enjoy the great food. It does get both crowded and loud! - Anne Rose, Director of Marketing

Tips from Real Estate Experts | the coastal country kitchen

Designing and decorating a coastal country kitchen focuses on light. By centering efforts on allowing lots of natural light from windows, and avoiding dark, heavy wood cabinets and dark tones on countertops and in furnishings, it's easy to infuse your country kitchen with a breezy coastal vibe.


Giving a country kitchen a coastal twist involves some simple tweaks to what is traditionally defined as a country decor. The place to start is replacing traditional country kitchen colors - white, yellow, blue, red and beige - with a coastal palate.

In the past, funds raised from the Heart Walk have led to scientific breakthroughs like pacemakers, cardiac stents, and artificial heart valves that keep people alive longer. Being in North Carolina with teaching hospitals, we actually receive more funds than we raise! There is still time to be a part of all the FUN. Register for my team today - you won't regret it!"

Farm Aid.png

Audrie Sierra, Broker/Realtor®, and Nancy Baldridge, KBT Listing Coordinator, both trekked to Raleigh for this year's Farm Aid Music Festival. Farm Aid is an all-day event that brings together artists, farmers and fans with the mission of keeping family farmers on the land.

"This year's theme is climate change, which has been affecting the rate of germination of seeds. Less crops equals less money for farmers, which really impacts agriculture in North Carolina," says Audrie.

Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised more than $64 million to help family farmers thrive. This year's concert was the second time Farm Aid has been staged at a North Carolina venue.

"Kirk Pugh and his team did an excellent job with the sell of our home. They were so on top of things during the entire process. Highly recommend." - Tina, Google Reviews

"Friendly, helpful, competent staff at all stages of the sale of my home." - Evelyn Nance, Google Reviews

"Audrie Sierra was an absolute dream to work with. I somewhat knew what I wanted and the shopping around part was made so easy as she helped me streamline and navigate my search for a new home myself and my son. She was patient through my millions of questions and “what if” concerns. She was super knowledgeable and if she didn’t have an answer, she found the it through a contact or connection. Audrie was available and flexible at the times I needed, as I went through this process while still working and managing life. I can’t imagine this process having gone any more fluid and transparent, and I’m so appreciative of her kind nature and compassion to help me find the right home." - Michelle Lawson, Facebook Reviews
