Kimberly Lank / New Homes Sales Consultant | Broker/REALTOR®

Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage

Originally from the Pocono mountains of Pennsylvania, I relocated to the beautiful coast of Southeastern North Carolina with my husband to enjoy the laid-back lifestyle. With nearly two decades of real estate sales experience in North Carolina I am keenly familiar with the myriad of real estate choices available in our area and can assist as both a buyer’s agent or with marketing your home.

Gina Gore / New Homes Sales Consultant | Broker/REALTOR®

Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage

Becoming a realtor was a second career for me and I don’t know why I waited so long!! My background is in the golf business and I still work a bit in that capacity as well. Honestly, I love what I do and I absolutely love Brunswick county! I am originally from Connecticut, but this has been my home for more than 30 years. I married a native and we have two beautiful daughters. Today one of them is the fabulous mom to my two young grandchildren and the other is studying to be a teacher at Meredith College in Raleigh. Tragically, I lost my husband suddenly in 2016. He is literally the wind beneath my wings! I say that because many years ago he suggested I sell real estate and I never took the leap of faith. When I made the decision to do so I had to make him part of my journey… so I have established a fund in his memory. My husband was the director of daily operations for Brunswick County EMS and a true servant to our community. It brings me great joy to tell people that a portion of all of my real estate earnings are donated to the Specialized Rescue Mark Gore Memorial Fund, maintained by Grissettown-Longwood Fire Department.

As I said, I truly love what I do. I am a hard worker and my clients come first…best part is the wonderful people like you that I get to help. Give me a call or email me today and let’s get started making your dreams come true!
