I am almost a 20 year resident of North Carolina, moving to the coast from the Midwest due to my love of the water and almost all water-related activities. As a former charter sailboat skipper for the Moorings, Ltd, in Tortola, the British Virgin Islands, my wife and I decided to live on the water in the late 1990s. We could have moved anywhere, but chose Coastal Carolina, and we are still sure we made the right decision.
I have varied educational and work experience. I graduated from Princeton University with a BA and then University of Kansas School of Law. I began practicing law in the mid-’70s. From there I left for the Caribbean, only to return and spend a decade in commercial real estate. During that time I traveled the country for a national retailer as a VP of Real Estate doing purchases, leases, government and municipal permitting, acquisitions, and all facets of commercial real estate.
With over a decade of background in North Carolina coastal real estate, I have listed and sold all manner of coastal property, from swampland (which is called “hunting land” for duck hunters) to major marinas. I work as a team with my wife, Nancy Crain, and we focus on the cities and counties of Beaufort/Carteret County; New Bern/Craven County; and Oriental/Pamlico County. We live in Pamlico County, where Oriental is known as the “Sailing Capital of NC”, which was a big draw for us.
With our love of the water and varied backgrounds, Nancy and I feel we can help you realize your dream of living on the water in Coastal Carolina. It is the best coastal cruising water on the East Coast, with the best pricing, and the most relaxed quality of living. Give us a call, we want to help to make your dream come true.
