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.
A daughter of Colombia, South America, I found beauty, creativity and imagination during my early days helping my father around his construction sites. After graduating as a Business Administrator, I worked as an insurance broker for DeLima March; the largest insurance broker in South America. There, I developed a comprehensive approach to customer service by honing my ability to “hear” my customer’s needs; not just their words. During the 3.5 years that followed, I worked as the International Sales Representative for a Colombian/US tool manufacturing company, traveling to Central and South America as well as the reaches of the Caribbean, and coming in contact with people from many diverse cultures and all walks of life. This intensified my passion for languages which I retain to this day (English, Spanish and some Italian) and a greater appreciation for the importance of that place called “HOME”.
In 2003, I moved to Raleigh, NC to work in sales for one of the premier Spanish speaking television stations in the country (Univision). While I was very successful in that industry, it came second best to finding Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and meeting my best friend and beloved husband, a U.S. Marine. Today, I am a proud US Citizen, a resident of New Bern, North Carolina, a very proud military spouse and mother of three amazing children. Although my travels in marriage and industry have taken me to several countries in the world, (Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, Costa Rica, Dominicana, Mexico, Puerto Rico, California, South Carolina, Japan, Virginia and others) my heart never ventured far from my home of North Carolina. Have my travels given me experience and knowledge on relocating and starting over? You bet! All of these are at the disposal of my clients as their Real Estate Agent. I can and will help you find or sell your home in Eastern North Carolina. If you are moving here, my hope is that you will find yourself falling in love with the beauty of this place as your new home; just as we have.
As a North Carolina native, I realized that even though we are not the same, everyone is special in their own way. At a young age I learned there was more out there in the world. Six days after high school I was on my way to bootcamp leaving safety nest and the two sports I loved football and track and field. I did two years active duty, four years Army National Guard, and 1 year NC Army Reserves. These experiences instilled in me the discipline it takes to build valuable skills, and to be able to transition more easily and effectively. to Boston to earn a graduate degree in business communications at Emerson College. This knowledge, coupled with two associate degrees in both Business Administration from Johnston Community College, a bachelor’s business degree in Healthcare Management, as well as my master’s degree in Sports Management from Liberty University, makes me a force that will bring an agent with a cutting edge into the industry.
In my spare time I like traveling, riding horses, spending time with my kids. Also, because of my love for sports, I volunteer and coach for Track Xplosion a youth track team. I take pride in giving back to the community and serve as a mentor, on a platform which helps high-risk, disadvantaged youth become successful adults.
