A Natural Progression
It seems natural that this couple would settle here. The two met while students at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and it was "love at first sight," Winston says, a sentiment Whitney echoes. Following graduation, Winston embarked on a successful career in residential real estate while Whitney became an accomplished resort property management professional. Although the pair enjoyed their life in Charlotte, they found themselves drawn to the Outer Banks each time they visited. The couples love of the area's natural beauty and active outdoors lifestyle made it the perfect choice for a home.
Things have changed quite a bit since that impulsive, spur of the moment idea to move the beach over 20 years ago. Everyone thought they were crazy, after all they had perfectly good jobs in Charlotte. They have since built a family here with their two boys Max and Levi. Since they arrived both Winston and Whitney's siblings have since relocated to the the area. Winston & Whitney understand why you want to live here and they can show you how to make it happen.
