Marian grew up in Tennessee as one of ten children. She spent the first part of her adult life working as an advocate for battered women and children. In 1992 she moved to the Crystal Coast and a decided to become a real estate professional. She earned her North Carolina real estate license in 1996 and has specialized in Crystal Coast properties ever since. In 1998 she founded Pine Knoll Shores Realty, LLC where she serves as owner/manager while maintaining her position as one of the top producers in Carteret County. Marian loves the Crystal Coast and showing others why they will love it too.
Marian has earned the top designations offered to real estate professionals including the Certified Residential Specialist; Graduate of the REALTOR® Institute; Accredited Buyer Institute; Senior Residential Specialist and Recreation and Resort Specialist. Because real estate practice is constantly changing, Marian consistently attends classes above and beyond those required in order to be able to provide you with the professional service you deserve.
Marian has served on just about every committee in her REALTOR® association from education to ethics to Scholarship. She has served as President of The Women's Council of REALTORS®. She served the Carteret County Association as Treasurer in 2003 and in 2011 she was awarded the coveted REALTOR® of the year award by her peers.
Faith, community and family are important to Marian. She has served as president of the Pine Knoll Shores Women’s Club, Chief Judge for the Pine Knoll Shores voting precinct, Vestry member of her church and currently serves as president of the Ladies’ Golf Association of the Country Club of the Crystal Coast where she loves to relax on the course.
Marian considers it a privilege to serve as Director of the Kids of St. Francis, the youth group at St. Francis By The Sea Episcopal Church. She is always ready to carve out time for that group of young people, which include her own three grandchildren.
Marian says she has always been a tomboy, preferring the company of her five brothers to housework and "girly" things. Marian is very grateful for a husband who cooks because she'd always rather be outside. In addition to golf, she enjoys walking with her dog Kirby; biking; kayaking; shooting hoops with her grandsons and exploring every nook and cranny of the Crystal Coast.
