At age eleven, during my first visit to the Outer Banks, I was totally captivated by the area’s wild natural beauty. There wasn’t a whole lot here in 1961; no traffic lights, no chain stores, no fourteen bedroom houses, but I do remember that except for the constant rustling of the wind, it was a very quiet place. I did observe however, great expanses of sand, sky, and sea, and that’s the part that I liked the best. From that moment on I was hooked. I thought to myself “wow, this place is magical; this would really be a neat place to live”.

Well …. turn the page, and twenty years later, I was now thirty one years old and living in Baltimore Md., married with two small children. We had moved to the area several years earlier from our hometown in Norfolk, Va. I had taken a new job with an international music distributor, where I was employed as their mid-Atlantic representative for the recorded music division. It was during this time period when we lived in Baltimore that we started to visit the Outer Banks with our young family.

After enjoying several memorable family vacations on the Outer Banks and many, many nights of discussion about how much we loved the area, my wife Sharon and I decided that it was time for a change; in fact, it was time for an adventure. Thus began our journey of moving to the beach and the start of my new career in resort real estate.

Now fast forward to the year 2016. I have now been assisting Outer Banks buyers and sellers for over thirty years. During this period I have earned the business and the respect of hundreds of clients and have made many, many friends along the way. I really enjoy what I do for a living and I get tremendous satisfaction helping people realize their Outer Banks real estate dreams.

I first became associated with Resort Realty in September 1990. From the first time that I met David Perrot; one of the principle owners of the company, I knew that I had found a home. The combination of a small but progressive company, locally owned, that placed heavy emphasis on exceptional customer service and future growth was exactly what I was looking for. The company and I have come a long way together over the years. Today, Resort Realty now has five Outer Banks locations from Corolla to Hatteras Island offering exceptional service for real estate sales and family vacation rentals. My office is located on the sound front in the Village of Duck. In case you are not aware, the best views on the Outer Banks are to the west overlooking the sound; offering some of the most beautiful sunsets on Earth.

My longevity in the real estate business is no testimony to my overall success or ability. What is important however, are the numerous repeat clients who continue to do business with me year after year and the many friends and family members that are referred to me by these same clients. This is the true measure of my success, repeat clients and referrals from repeat clients. It doesn’t get much better than that. References are gladly given upon request.

The Outer Banks is a great place to visit, but an even better place in which to live. So, whether you are a first time home buyer, seasoned investor, or are just starting to explore the possibility of owning your special place at the beach, I am readily available to assist you in your search. Call me and you will receive straightforward good old fashioned professional service from someone that truly knows and loves the beach.
