Kyle Frie, with KBT Realty Group in Wilmington, moved from Holly Springs, North Carolina to become a full-time real estate agent while finishing his bachelors degree from Eastern Carolina University online.
I've been in real estate for just under a year. I got into real estate because I knew it was something that I've always wanted to pursue. My original idea was to go to college, get a degree, get a job. And due to COVID, I got my real estate license kind of just for fun.
And, it turned into me working full time as a Realtor down here in Wilmington. I love it down here. There's such a diverse group of people and homes.
I was originally born on Long Island, New York. I lived there until I was six years old, and then my family moved to Holly Springs, North Carolina, which is about 20 minutes from Raleigh. I love the beaches, but I have to say I like the river more.
I live in Riverlights right behind me, and Riverlights is kind of a newer community, and it's not as ...

We love taking in all the area Christmas lights! Every year, we make certain not to miss Lake Lindas Christmas Lights in Hampstead, and Airlie Gardens in Wilmington.

When I lived in downtown Wilmington,I made sure to do my evening walks down Second Street, between Nun and Ann. The entire row of Victorian homes are light up, with sparkling ornaments hanging in the trees. It's absolutely magical. This year my family made the day-trip to Greenbrook Gardens, in Murrells Inlet South Carolina. The 9100 acre pr ...

Shawn Robert, Broker, has joined KBT Realty Group as an agent specializing in commercial brokerage with the newly formed KBT Commercial, a division of KBT Realty Group - Keller Williams INNOVATE.
Meet Shawn Roberts
Hi, I'm Shawn Roberts. I'm a commercial broker with KBT Commercial Realty in Wilmington, North Carolina.
I transitioned into commercial real estate because I really have a love for the business planning process. I was trying to open a restaurant, and I was trying to get people to invest in me by walking down the street and giving out business plans and pitching them on the spot with menus. And that just seemed like the most sensible way for me to talk to the most people about my business idea.
And a lot of the people that were willing to hear me out, and listen to me more, were real estate brokers, and they said, you have a talent here that you're not seeing, and maybe we should talk about that talent.
So it's real estate that kind of showed me what I'm better at ...
