Modern Real Estate

With an ‘Old School’ Feel

The 150-year-old “Octagon House” sits on property that was originally granted by King George III to Thomas Lee in 1713. This land was once an Indian camping ground – evidenced by shell beds and pottery found along the banks of the sound. In 1765, William Hill, from Lunenberg County, Virginia, purchased what had become known as the Cedar Point Plantation – hundreds and hundreds of acres on the White Oak River near Swansboro, then part of Carteret County

Ellen - an Awesome Realtor!

“Ellen provides hands on approach through the purchase process. She made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. She is very attentive to details, and to the timeliness in which things needed to be done. She listened carefully to our needs/desires for our new home, and found one that suits us perfectly. She has a vast knowledge of the various towns in Eastern NC, which was also very helpful in our decision on location.”

Beth Exceeds Expectations

Beth Twilley, with Brass Lantern Realty, went above and beyond in helping me search for a home in the Onslow county area. Every few days she sent me new listings to check out via email. She was always very quick to respond to any questions I had about the listings and did extra research when I wanted to know more. She was also very accommodating to the fact that I was an out of state buyer and needed to have an idea of what homes I wanted to see on each trip to town before arriving. She helped me find my dream home and I would refer Beth to anyone who wants a real estate agent that will exceed all expectations!”
