I was born and brought up in Northern New York State, near the Thousand Islands region. I graduated from the State University of New York at Potsdam in 1975 with a BA in English Literature, moving to Brunswick County in 1979.
From 1980 through 1999, I owned and operated The Italian Fisherman Restaurant, a well-known waterfront eatery in Sunset Beach, NC. After leaving the foodservice business, I knew that I wanted to embark on a career that would keep me in a people–oriented, service-driven industry.
I happily chose real estate, and that’s what I’ve been doing since 2000! Having been a Brunswick County resident for almost thirty years, I have witnessed the tremendous growth and ensuing change the area has undergone. I know the geography and landscape well-- it’s no surprise that so many have seen the natural beauty, temperate climate, and enjoyable lifestyle this little corner of the Carolinas affords, and have decided to make it home, too! My mission is to assist those seeking to buy or sell residential property locally!
Several key points comprise my business philosophy: Service is paramount! Put the client first and the rest follows. Communication is essential! My approach is more consultative in style: my job is to provide the necessary information, advice, and updates so that buyers and sellers can make informed decisions through-out the process. Dedication to excellence is vital! I have earned several professional designations in order to keep abreast of the latest real estate trends that will affect my client’s interests, a significant investment of time and effort. Honest, ethical conduct is crucial! The “golden rule” rules, and then some! In business, I concentrate on forming long-term relationships, and indeed, many people have become not only clients for life, but good friends as well! My goal is simply to address all your real estate needs!

Bonnie is a consummate professional. She is very knowledgeable about real estate transactions generally and about residential real estate in and around Brunswick County, NC specifically. She always has time for a phone call or a showing, and never applies pressure to consider a property that is not absolutely right for us. She's the best, and we have recommended her to a number of our friends.
Bonnie did everything possible to sell our condo. She listened to our wishes and complied with them. She was also constantly in touch either by voice/text/email on anything that involved the sale of the unit. We are extremely pleased with the efforts Bonnie took to sell our condo and would highly recommend her and her services to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Sunset Beach area.
Bonnie brings years of experience in helping all her clients wade through the journey of buying or selling. She stayed on top of everything and her knowledge was priceless at my nightmare closing. I was blessed to have her by my side!
