House Hunting with KBT: What We Love About 6853 Waterstone Crossing SW

Rick Binford, Broker/Realtor, shares what he loves about the three bedroom, four bathroom, 4,083 square foot home at Ocean Isle Ridge, in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.

Which room do you love the most?

Talk about a room with flair! The Living Room is incredible – with a soaring 28’ ceiling complete with artistic coffered detailing overhead, this is truly a room for relaxing in style…oh, and did I mention the special Juliet balcony overlooking this great gathering space from above? 





What is unique about this property?

In real estate, we always say it’s all about location – location – location! Well, this location cannot be beat – located on a quiet cul-de-sac in a lovely coastal woodlands setting – the views here simply can’t be beat anywhere else in this community. From the rear of the property you have a 180 degree pond and golf course view overlooking three of the most challenging holes on the famed ...

Meet the Broker: Johna Herbinger

Meet Johna Herbinger, Broker Realtor with KBT Realty in Wilmington NC. Johna moved to the Topsail Island Beach area a year ago, from New York state. She and her family wanted to be near the water, and chose Surf City because it was the closest she could get without being directly on the beach.  

She often walks the beach before sunrise. Every Wednesday morning, she volunteers with the Topsail Turtle Project, walking one mile of beach looking for turtle nests during nesting season.

Johna points out that Realtor.com recently posted an article that states Topsail Island is one of the most affordable beach communities in the United States. The name "Topsail" actually came from the pirates who used to hide behind the island on their ships, waiting to see the tops of the sails of ships to attack for riches.

Johna sells real estate from Hampstead south to Holden Beach: the whole southeastern North Carolina coast. She is happy to introduce prospective buyers to t ...

Meet the Broker: Rebecca Robbins

Meet Rebecca Robbins, Broker, Realtor with the KBT Realty Group, and her dog Mazy. Rebecca is new to the KBT Team in Wilmington NC.

Rebecca loves Wilmington, and the Cape Fear area's dog-friendly attributes a are high on the list of reasons she chooses to live here. She tries to take Mazy with her everywhere she goes. From parks, outdoor restaurants, beer gardens, farmers' markets, and even many retail stores, options for dog owners are numerous.

One of Rebecca's favorite places to walk with Mazy is Smith Creek Park, off Gordon Road. Smith Creek Park offers a beautiful dog-friendly walking trail. In the summer, the park trail is particularly inviting in the evening when the temperature has cooled a bit and the sun is ready to set. Smith Creek Park is near Murrayville, and Rebecca loves showing clients homes that any dog would approve of.

Originally from Durham NC, Rebecca moved to Wilmington in 2008 to go to college and fell in love with city. She has been in real estate ...

Accountability and Being Your Own Boss in Real Estate: There's a Path For That

Why do people get into real estate and what do they need to succeed?

In this episode of "There's a Path for That," Teri Moylan tackles that question, from her personal experience, and as a Growth Director at KBT Realty Group, and a real estate coach. 
Teri went into real estate because she wanted to get her life back. She was working in a corporate position, putting in too many hours during the week, and didn't have balance or time to spend on herself. Real estate seemed to offer her the opportunity to get her life back by being her own boss. The problem with that, she found, is that many people go into business for themselves because they like the idea of being their own boss, but don't really know how to be their own boss.


Accountability and Goal Setting

Most people who are running major corporations have some kind of accountability system in place. They may be a CEO who is help accountable by a board of directors. If you are going into real estate because yo ...
