Support the NC Coastal Federation and the Cape Fear Coast!

Real Estate Agent with High Tide Realty Team of Coastal Properties


Yesterday I was at my favorite place, the NCDMV, to renew my license plate and I discovered an opportunity to support the NC Coastal Federation both financially and  publicly.  Yes Indeed... I do sell Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Holden Beach, Southport and Topsail Island Real Estate and I anxiously await the opportunity to close on an Oceanfront Wrightsville Beach Million Dollar property!  However, I believe in protecting our beaches before Real Estate!  Having grown up on and around the coast my entire life I believe preservation is essential for our personal enjoyment of the ocean and our children.  For more than 25 years, the North Carolina Coastal Federation has worked with citizens to safeguard the coastal rivers, creeks, sounds and beaches of North Carolina.

My company is High Tide Realty I gladly took my place in the long line so I could practice what I preach and voice my beliefs!  Not such a bad trip after all!  If any fellow tarheels are interested in supporting the NC Coastal Federation the DMV info is below!
