A Little Bit About Michele ...
Michele was born and raised in Jupiter Florida, located in Palm Beach County.
Her earliest memories include the ocean. Having lived in one place her entire life it sure was an adventure to move north when she married! In 1987 Michele met her husband Jeff and they moved to Pennsylvania for Jeff to attend Graduate school at Bucknell University.
Both of their children were born in Lewisburg PA. Beau and Kaitlin really don't remember the winters but Michele does." It was such a production to just get out the door in the winter with two small children! " Michele recalls. " Coming from Florida I was use to wearing sandals year round ! The winters in PA were the hardest although the memories are special -she is so grateful for their life's journey!
Once Jeff earned his Masters in Education, they were given an offer they couldn't refuse- East Carolina University wanted him to coach and teach .. and off they went!
Michele says Greenville North Carolina was certainly a great place to raise their children and they stayed for 10 years.
Michele fell into Real Estate while building a home and feels she has been very blessed with the success of her career ever since.
With the coast just a quick hour and 1/2 from Greenville, Jeff and Michele purchased a beach cottage in Emerald Isle when the kids were small to spend weekends and holidays with the family. The Connors also spent 3 yrs in Chapel Hill. Michele continued her successful real estate career in Chapel Hill but still loved her weekends at the beach. "Heart strings were tugged each time we had to pack up and go home", Michele remembers.
Ultimately, the beach won and the Connors made Morehead City their home. They kept the ocean cottage and now consider it their little "nest egg". Jeff continued at UNC for a total of 10 yrs and January of 2011 made full circle back to ECU and Greenville, "a town that we simply couldn't pull our roots from" she confesses. Now the Connors have a home in Greenville and Emerald Isle. Michele commutes like the good ole' days and enjoys the similarities and differences each county offers ! ( Looking to buy or sell in Greenville- Michele's your gal ! )
Real estate is priced to sell in Carteret County , and Pitt County.. It is a buyers Market and Rates are at a historical Low. This won't continue forever- real estate just like life I guess, comes in cycles ..
"We all need a roof over our head, a sense of security and accomplishment...Home ownership is a prideful experience and I enjoy making that dream a reality".
Obviously, Michele continues her enthusiasm and stride in Real Estate.
She makes note about Coastal property : "many being second homes away from home ( whether investment or vacation) ..
The place sells itself! If you love the water and the outdoors, you'll love Carteret County".
We simply love and enjoy coastal living and the lifestyle really fits our family personality. Now we are back in Greenville we see that short 1 1/2 - 2 hour commute as something worthwhile! "
"We truly are enjoying Eastern NC and all it has to offer. We wouldnt have it any other way! "
Michele invites you to call her about your real estate needs.. Whether Greenville or down at the Coast.. Shes your gal !

Jeffs career has given us the pleasure of traveling and following football in the
C-USA (ECU Pirates) and ACC (UNC Tarheels). Their children were raised around sports and are also involved with their own interests.
Beau graduated Seattle Film Institute in 2011 with a 3.7 GPA and is in Chapel Hill/ Durham !
Kaitlin is taking time off this yr and is looking forward to learning her way around Greenville and reconnecting with childhood friends.
They both make us very proud as young adults and as individuals

Our One -Eye Willie...
Willie is our new addition.. Adopted 11-21-11 From Safe Harbor Farm, Maysville NC.
Our Willie was rescued from being euthanized due to his traumatic injuries and neglect. Safe Harbor and friends took him in- provided medical care- surgery and 12 months of nurturing and housing before our family found him and was approved to adopt. There are many, many more stories like this-- and fella's like Willie waiting for their forever family.
Please consider adopting when looking for an addition to your family. Rescue groups and non-kill shelters to be commended for their dedication and efforts to locating forever families for their animals.
Michele also takes pride in her career accomplishments. She has hit the ground running from day one and although her family comes first, they really have supported her every step of the way. With 16 years now in the business, her track record has added up to over 100 million in sales and the opportunity to assist so many wonderful clients who have been a great source of personal referrals and repeat business. She understands that client satisfaction is the foundation for a successful career.

Obviously as a mother I enjoy watching my kids grow and experience life~ nothing compares to the greatness of being a mom!
For personal reasons I guess, I have always loved the Carolina sunsets and Carteret County has the most magnificent landscape for one! With the East -West ocean views, you are able to capture sunrise and sunset over the water- It is so beautiful. I have literally taken hundreds of photos over the years and feels every sunset brings a new spiritual connection.
To be honest, my career many times doesn't feel like work, mostly due to really enjoying my job! With that said, I have found a way to manage my work and family time and am thankful for the pleasure I find in both!

"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these."
Author:George Washington Carver
"To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance."
