Marvin, a fellow agent, and I both live and work primarily in the Oriental NC area, but frequently assist clients in other areas also.  Since our company office is located in New Bern, we have an interest in keeping informed about the history surrounding that area.  Tours are not all the same and we learn about different things with each tour taken.  Most of these tours are walking or riding in a bus or trolley.  Recently, we took the New Bern Colonial Capitol tour, which uses the Segway People Movers for transportation. The Segway is one of the neatest machines I have ever seen.  After a brief instruction session, we were outfitted with helmets and a receiver to better hear about the various buildings and sites, then we were on our way.  Never having been aboard a Segway before was no...

I am asked this question a lot by those who may be considering placing their home up for sale.  The picture is not as pretty as we might like, but perhaps it will help you understand what is, and has been happening.  The graph shown is for homes only, lots and commercial properties are not included.  This graph shows the number of homes sold in Pamlico County each quarter since January 1, 2008. As you can see, during the past year there have been a total of 67 homes sold in all of Pamlico County, or an average of about 5.58 homes sold per month.  Currently there are 213 homes actively listed for sale in the area.  When there is a 6 month supply of homes, it is considered to be a normal, balanced market.  Less than a 6 month supply is a Sellers' market, and more than a 6 month supply is ...

Let's address the two main questions first. Whenever and wherever I go in my little "jeep", everybody seems to love it, and very few have ever seen one before. So, I frequently get stopped by people (including police officers), who ask me the same two questions: What is it? and... Where can I get one? What it is... is an Austin Mini Moke, the most unusual variant of the old "classic" Mini from the 60's. It is about 4 1/2 feet wide and 10 feet long, has a 4 cylinder 1 liter engine, 4 speed transmission, gets 42 MPG and the book says top speed is 81 MPH. The Moke was designed in the late 50's, to be a replacement utility vehicle for the British Army. The British Army chose not to purchase Mini Mokes, and a very limited number were produced between 1963 and 1993. They were never "cheap", ...

About a month ago, mid-September, Mark and Gail arrived from Illinois to look at some property in New Bern.  While in the area, they also wanted to take a look at available properties in Oriental.  I met with them briefly on Friday morning, just before they left with Craig to view the New Bern properties.  Craig had referred them to me for viewing properties in Oriental as I have owned property there since 1992, and make my home there. We met again on Saturday morning and headed out to see what was available in the area.  I told them a little about the village and the many varied shops, organizations, and businesses here as we looked at homes, lots and marinas.  They let me know that they had finished looking in New Bern early the previous day, and had driven down to Oriental to look a...

I recently received a call from Maria, a very pleasant surprise.  Jack and Maria live in New York and had purchased about 4.5 acres of land with a boat slip from me a while back.  They were in town so I walked over to the Tiki Bar to say hello.  Evidently they were having a great holiday of fishing, relaxing and becoming more acquainted with the area.  They had been out on a fishing boat and were very pleased with their catch.  Maria was especially pleased that the captain's wife came along, as the girls enjoyed socializing. Jack showed me photos of an old Harley Servicycle he had restored and it is "drop dead" gorgeous!  The paint job on that Servi is phenominal!  He also had photos of another Servi that he is currently working on.  This one is being customized, and I am certain that t...

Oriental NC Those who know and love Oriental are aware that there's just no other place like it.  Widely known as the "Sailing Capitol of North Carolina", where boats outnumber residents 3 to 1.  The small town atmosphere is so relaxing during the week, just as it is for those who spend their weekends with us.  I've heard it said that "the temperature is never higher than 80 or lower than 60 and it only rains at night".  While that may not be totally true, it's not excessively hot or cold very often, or for very long. Once you have spent time in Oriental, you will find this sailing and fishing village of 875 people is not quite like anywhere else. It's history is part of that feeling. Oriental was settled by Louis B. Midyette in the 1870's. Legend says that "Uncle Lou", as he was known,...
