Colleen Teifer
Silver Coast Properties
About Colleen

Colleen moved to North Carolina from New Jersey in 2014 after retiring early from a career as a high school administrator. Real estate had always been in her blood, as other family members were agents, builders and investors. Colleen began investing in property herself many years ago, as she knew it would be a means to a planned early retirement and relocation. As such, she has the benefit of many years of experience buying, selling, renovating, and managing her own properties. This enables her to look with a critical eye at properties for her clients, and help educate them throughout their search for property. As Colleen relocated to this area herself, it also offers her clients the additional benefit of her experience and understanding of this process. She can often help clients streamline their search, and offer them the options that appear to best match their preferences. She covers the entire area from Wilmington to Myrtle Beach, so can assist clients with any communities or properties. She is licensed in both NC and SC. Colleen's background as a public servant gives her a perspective that other traditional salespeople do not have. She truly has her clients' best interests at heart, and will work for their benefit alone. This has served her well as she is now one of the top producing brokers in her region. Her sales volume for 2018 and 2019 was in excess of $10,000,000 each year and 2020 was over $17,000,000.

Suzanne Polino
ASAP Realty
About Suzanne

Originally from the suburbs of Connecticut, we had always vacationed on the shores of Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. In my adult years, I moved to the Boston area, got married and raised a family and wanted a change of pace for our vacation destinations. For 12 years, we had vacationed on the coastal shores of North Carolina. Its beauty reminded me of my days on the Cape and Islands, but had a more relaxed, low key vibe. My husband and I knew that someday, when the time was right, we wanted this to be our home. After a painstaking (almost) 2 years selling our home in the Boston area, in a very tough market, we sold our home and moved to the Ocean Isle Beach/Sunset Beach area. We were finally rid of the frigid winters and high taxes. It was during these years that I realized what it really took to both sell a house successfully, and be a buyer trying to narrow down just the right community for our family in this amazing area. I invite you to see www.suzysellsnc.com

About Brian

Surf & Turf Properties is a husband and wife real estate team. Jenette Pavlak McGhee is a South Carolina Licensed Real Estate Professional. Brian McGhee is a North Carolina Licensed Real Estate Broker. The couple met and fell in love after a real estate conference they both attended. While both are competitive by nature, they decided to join forces both personally and professionally. The couple married in 2018 and are in a unique position to assist clients in both North and South Carolina. Brian McGhee was born In Roxboro, NC. He is a trained chef having attended the culinary arts program at Vincennes University in Indiana. He then continued his chef training by completing internships with Walt Disney World and French Lick Spring Resort. Brian returned home to NC and has had the privilege to work with some of the best chefs in the area at some of the finest restaurants. About 10 years ago Brian brought his culinary skills to Brunswick County and began working in private clubs that included: Cape Fear Country Club, Bald Head Island Club, Saint James Plantation, and Figure 8 Yacht Club. It was during this time he discovered his passion for real estate. Brian brings his creativity and energy from his experience in the kitchen to the negotiating table of real estate. Together, when not working, they are members of the local British Car Club. As animal lovers, they support many animal charities such as the ASPCA and HSUS, along with other smaller local organizations. Their pets are a big part of their lives and they often visit Bark Park South, a local dog park, and go walking on the beach with their rescued Shepherd mix and Australian Cattle dog. They love to travel and have both lived in several other states, so they understand the stresses of relocating long distance. As much as they love to travel and visit other parts of the world, they also know there is no place like home, and that is the feeling of joy they wish for their clients.
