Your Topsail Island Real Estate Team!
Being a native North Carolinian and having lived all across the state, there is little doubt as to why I ended up in Wilmington. I am married to the most wonderful woman in the world Carrie Upchurch. We have 2 wonderful children (Audrey 6 & Mark 4) and the best dog on the planet (Ice). I enjoy cross country running, Duke basketball, time with my family, golf, and fishing off my 19’ Mako. As a kid who went to 4 high schools in 4 years, I embraced an environment where you simply have to learn to adapt. I did exactly that and have built a career in growing my business and helping families reach their goals, along the way.
Working from the ground up and learning the financial services industry over the past 12 years, has been a honor. I have worked as a licensed mortgage broker and a licensed real estate broker. These roles have helped guide me toward a unique perspective with my clients. Everyone has different facets of their lives that create a new challenge. I have worked hard to focus on those needs and create a seamless experience for my clients. I love helping people and knowing I made a difference.
Prior to my career in real estate, I spent 8 years working as a mortgage broker/banker. I worked with Bank of America, GMAC, and was in the expanding markets division of Fifth Third Bank. I ceased an opportunity to take on a senior operations manager role and negotiated RFP contracts with multiple Fortune 100 companies. During that time, I managed over 1,500 banking center locations and the REO divisions of several banks. I also worked as a project manager for Infinity Custom Homes and designed a 50 unit townhome development in Boone, NC. I went before the mayor and board of adjustments to gain approval for the largest development within town limits, in over 20 years.
