I was raised in Myrtle Beach, SC where I graduated from Coastal Carolina University. In 2016 I moved up the coast and found my new home in Wilmington, NC. As a native of the Carolinas, I am a believer in Southern hospitality and I feel honored to help others find their home in this beautiful part of the world.
I love all of the charm Wilmington has to offer and enjoy spending my free time discovering new parts of the city. I also have a passion for home decor and love designing spaces to truly make a house a home.
I strive to exceed my clients expectations with my dedication, honesty, and strong negotiation skills. I am specialist in the community and can assist you with all of your real estate needs. I will work hard to make sure your buying and selling process is a truly enjoyable experience.
I am a Southern California girl born and raised! My education took me east to Ohio, where I graduated with a degree in psychology from Youngstown State University. While pursuing my degree I discovered my passion for helping people. This passion has driven me throughout my careers, which started in mortgage lending. I spent 10 years in the lending industry before I decided to shift to real estate.
My journey in real estate started in January of 2017, when I started with United Real Estate East Carolina. I worked on the award winning Dan Jenkins Team, and helped grow it to the top team in sales volume in all of United Real Estate. From this experience I was given knowledge and tools necessary to start my own team. I started Carolina Proud Realty LLC, and Carolina Proud Property Management Company LLC with my husband John Hromyak.
Real Estate is a passion of mine, but my true joy is my family. I am a proud mother of a 9-year-old son. On the weekends you can find me on a beach with a book, watching John toss the football with our son. I love spending as much time outdoors as possible, which is one of the reasons I love the beautiful state of North Carolina. I have lived all over the country, but eastern North Carolina is where I call home. From the amazing beaches and mountains, to the caring neighborly people, there is no place like North Carolina. I would be honored to guide you through the process of finding your piece of this great state, and make it your home.
Hello and welcome to your property search on the beautiful Crystal Coast of North Carolina! I grew up in Eastern North Carolina, and after many years working and raising kids in Virginia, recently returned to be closer to family. I work out of our New Bern office and live in Newport/Morehead City. This beach life runs in my blood, and after traveling far and wide, my favorite place on earth is the Crystal Coast. I feel lucky to live here every day! I graduated from Duke University and Hollins University, and have a background in communication and content marketing. I'm very familiar with the power of video and online content, and will get your property in front of viewers so that they fall in love before they walk through the front door. I've been involved in many real estate transactions from both the buyer and seller side, with and without an agent, and I know how emotional and taxing the process can become. I'm serious about working for you and partnering with you every step of the way to get to your desired outcome smoothly.
Wilmington and the Cape Fear Region are great places to live and work! Which is why I choose to call it home. With roots in New England, I came to Wilmington as a young child in the late 90's.
I eventually left Wilmington to finish my degree and continue my career in the corporate world up North. In 2018, I was able to find my way back to the place I’ve always called home. Later that year, I jumped into the real estate market and have been in it ever since.
In addition, I grew up in a family whose means are based around different trades. With my stepfather in the plumbing business, my father who is in the HVAC and electrical businesses, along with a few other family members who have established a great reputation building homes in the Wilmington area. Their businesses have served as valuable resources, giving me additional knowledge relating to my career.
Real estate is truly a passion for me. With my background in business and customer service, it is easy to see why I have helped dozens of families buy and sell their homes over the years.
Whether a first time buyer, relocating, downsizing, investing, or having a vacation home, every transaction is different and each home has a unique story. I enjoy being a home matchmaker, finding that perfect house for each buyer. Selling your property can seem overwhelming with its own challenges. I'm here to help make the process seamless and get top dollar for you!
I strongly believe in giving back to the community. I have attended mission trips, volunteered with local church ministries, children's ministries and feeding programs. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three kids. I love gardening, photography, creative diy projects and alternative crunchy living.
Coastal living is my happy place and I want it to be yours too!
I believe that your home is your sanctuary and should be treated as such. Whether you're buying your first home or seeking that dream retirement residence, the experience should be seamless. I am no stranger to moving, I am the wife of a Navy veteran and we have moved quite a bit with the kids. Every place we have lived we made memories so I understand that a home is more than a place to live.
As a proud member of the United Real Estate - Coastal Rivers family, I carry the value of hard work, integrity and outstanding client service into everything I do.
