Susan just loves the Wrightsville Beach lifestyle, walking to the beach, restaurants, school and church. As a resident for nearly a decade, she is thoroughly familiar with what Wrightsville Beach has to offer and is very enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge with potential buyers in the area. Susan is a native of Fayetteville, NC and attended Saint Mary's in Raleigh and UNC-Chapel Hill.
Upon graduation she spent six years in Boston working for a major real estate developer. After returning to Fayetteville to marry and start a family, she always felt drawn to the Wilmington area and purchased an older house in the Downtown Historic District as a second home. From there her family bought a condominium near the beach before moving to Wrightsville full time. After a few years she and her husband renovated their Wrightsville Beach home, a challenging yet ultimately gratifying project. She would be happy to share her knowledge of that experience with you.
Susan has also had the advantage of spending summers and family vacations with her parents at their Long Beach (now Oak Island) and Bald Head Island homes. Susan and her husband Larry are the proud parents of a daughter and son, both of whom attended Wrightsville Beach School. They too love the beach lifestyle and enjoy surfing, fishing, sports and the natural beauty their surroundings offer. Also, Susan and Larry have a number of residential investment properties in the area, and are knowledgeable about the advantages of investing in this area. All in all, Susan would be a very helpful ally in the pursuit of a primary, secondary or investment property in the greater Wrightsville Beach/Wilmington area.
