I have spent most of my life working in the restaurant industry where I learned that timeliness, listening skills, service, teamwork and being personable were the keys to success.  I loved making patrons feel welcome in my establishment, the comradery of the staff, and the opportunity to help shape my young employees into the lovely people they are today.  In 2011 I decided to start serving people at a higher level and the obvious choice was Real Estate!
I knew that I could impact people in a major way by helping with one of the most important decisions they will make, where they choose to live.  I have a passion for serving others and getting results for my clients is the reward.  Real Estate is not about buying or selling houses; it's about serving others and building relationships.  I love my job and I love helping others achieve their goals and dreams.

Cori is superb. I sold my property from out of town and everything was handled as if I was next door. Response time was key and it was always spot on, even in the initial stages when we agreed to talk 30 days out, when that day came Cori was on the phone. It would be nice if everybody had this positive attitude.

Cori worked with me for almost a year as I attempted to find my forever beach home from almost 9 hours away.
She was always responsive to emails and texts and when I did visit the area, she was a wealth of knowledge. After I found my new home, she stepped in for me and did things that allowed me the time to finish packing, get my home ready for sale and followed up on those things that a buyer would normally do themselves.
Forever grateful ~

On a scale of 1-10 Tammy and Cori rate a 12. As background, we put our house on the market with another Real Estate Agent in early June 2016. We terminated with that Realtor in October 2016 and on 18 November, 2016 we listed our home with Tammy and Cori: -after having interviewed others. Tammy and Cori accomplished more for us in days, than our previous Realtor either ignored or struggled with in months. Proactive marketing, constant feedback, professional advice, and attention to detail are a few items we wanted, and Tammy and Cori hit home runs with all these and more. Broker and public open houses, were among the first of their many initiatives. (Our previous Realtor did not believe in the value of open houses, and hosted one of each months after the listing and only after contentious dialogue. In fact, he showed up 30 minutes late for the public open house - which was consistent with his sub-standard performance). We have sold 2 houses since October 2015. One in Breckenridge, CO and the one listed with Tammy and Cori in Kure Beach. The Realtor we had in Colorado was solid gold and we never thought we would find anyone who could match his professionalism. However, Tammy and Cori exceeded our wildest expectations. They are truly "Top one-percenters" --the best of the best.

This was my first time buying a home and Cori walked me through the process making it much less intimidating as I had originally anticipated. She has the much needed knowledge of the area that I lacked and is a straight shooterwhen it comes to any problems you may have. Her work ethic is wonderful; she makes you feel like her only client. She has a wonderful team to help you with the closing process. I highly recommend Cori to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Wilmington and Carolina Beach region.

Her attention to the details of the process was impressive and very much appreciated. She took a great deal of time to get the most appropriate prospects into the property to show it. This saved her time as well as the prospective buyers time which is important when they are seeking specific property specifications.

I was fortunate to find Cori for all of my real estate needs! I lived out of state while going thru the purchase process in CB, NC and Cori was there every step of the way. With Cori's knowledge and expertise I was able to relax with confidence knowing she was on top of everything. I had a seemless closing and even weeks later Cori continues to check in with me and provide very helpful information as I get settled into my new home, in a new city and state. I would highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs!

Pleasantly surprised with the stewardship of Cori's guidance, recommendations, and strategies. We were out of state during the entire process, and yet Cori's steadfast attention to the market kept us informed, which led to successful closing way before we expected things to materialize. We are grateful for Cori's responsive, and pro-active deliveries. Not only did Cori know how to pound the ground with a perfect plan, and strategy, but she also is a master negotiating the admin processes, and navigating the closing - flawlessly. Even while we were remote. Couldn't be happier. You can trust Cori to get the job complete!

Cori was recommended to me by several friends, some who had used her realtor services. Six months before I was gong to sell I asked her advice in preparing my home for sale and she came to the house and spent time advising me. I prepared my home using her advice and received an offer within a month of listing. I had several unexpected problems during the closing process which Cori was able to work with me to help resolve.

I would HIGHLY recommend her services to home buyers/sellers!

I give Cori the highest possible recommendation. She was excellent from start to finish in selling my property. She promptly returned my calls and emails throughout the entire process, and her responses were always thoughtful and insightful. When we first communicated, she demonstrated extensive knowledge of the local market and quickly and accurately determined the fair market value of my property based on current listings and recent sales. The listing she prepared for my property, both the description and photographs, were absolutely perfect. She also took the time to market the property outside of the MLS, which I believe is critical in the current real estate market. We received 2 offers, both close to the listing price, within 3 weeks of listing the property for sale and the property was sold in less than 1 month from when it was listed for sale. Cori also did a great job negotiating the purchase price and in making sure everything was in order for closing. I do not believe you can find a better realtor than Cori. I will definitely use her for my future listings and purchases, and highly recommend that you do the same.

Cori is the consummate professional for real estate in Carolina Beach, N.C. She is patient, extremely helpful, very responsive, and her knowledge of the area -- being a longtime resident on the island-- is as good as anyone's there could possibly be. I started my search not really certain what type of property I wanted -- and we looked at single homes, duplexes, quadplexes and condos in both small and large communities. She never swayed me one way or another but was helpful in answering questions and qualms I may have had regarding one type of ownership versus another. The process took a while because I live four hours away and this purchase was for a second home -- one with income potential if my wife and I decided to rent it some. Because of erratic listings in the two condo complexes in which I narrowed my search, there were gaps of several weeks with no new listings whatsoever. Cori never seemed exasperated at the gaps in our conversations because of the lack of availability, yet was always cheerful and upbeat when we reconnected from time to time so that I could let her know I was still keeping up with the properties that showed up in my portal and was still poised to buy. I acted quickly when the "right one" did eventually get listed, and I bought the condo sight-unseen because I was very familiar with other condos of the same size and layout in the same community. What transpired then, from the offer to the response to the acceptance -- and through the inspection and the closing -- was the smoothest real estate transaction I've had in my life. (And, at age 63, I've had a few!) Once I signed, online, for a digital signature by which to endorse each document, the process was almost scarily easy. When it was time for the closing, just three weeks later (or perhaps a little less than that), there was nothing for me to do but sign one more document. My closing time was 10 a.m. I arrived a bit early, was called back by the attorney, signed that last document, received the keys, and walked out at 9:56, before the closing was even scheduled to start! The "signing" process through the computer had been so simple that there was nothing else to do! I must add that, all along the way, upon my receipt of each online document, I sometimes had questions before signing. Each question I posed to Cori, whether by email (usually) or text or phone was answered incredibly quickly. She either knew the answer or said she would provide me an answer after checking on something. Because she is very busy, I was very impressed with her response time, and I always felt as if I were her only customer. She is, to sum it all up, the best realtor with whom I've ever worked.

Overall, Cori did an excellent job selling our home. To her credit, we got a number of offers throughout the process despite selling in a relatively slower time of year. Her local knowledge helped us price correctly - in the early agent interview process, the listing prices we were being told from other agents seemed too good to be true, and when she suggested a more reasonable listing price, it ended up being right. We had a number of buyers who were very challenging to work with from a negotiation perspective, but she was persistent and upbeat throughout the process, and because of that, we found an excellent buyer and closed within our goals.
