Licensed since 2009, together with my partners Becky Brown and Tyson Emery, we own and operate the KBT Realty Team, a division of Keller Williams Realty. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, I have been blessed to live in some amazing places during the course of my career and I have called Wilmington home since 2001. “Seek first to understand before being understood.” One of the more recent quotes on my list of favorites. Understanding my clients, who they are, how they live, and where they are in life’s journey is most important in determining how I can meet their needs. • Past Board Member of the Coastal Carolina Real Estate Investors Association • Sixteen years of immersive local real estate knowledge • Attend Port City Community Church • Volunteer Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity • Access Wilmington • American Heart Association • Avid Tennis Player • Fisherman • Consumer of fine wine I make my home in Landfall with my wife Janine, my step-children Ryan and Samantha, and my son, Austin.

Becky Brown



I am one of the few true natives of Wilmington. Because I am a Wilmington native, I am familiar with all of Wilmington and the surrounding areas. I have enjoyed being a Realtor since 1995. I have a background in insurance and banking. I appreciate the hard work and dedication provided by the Fire, Police and EMS. If you work in the industry, please contact me about the special incentives with lending, inspections and closing attorney. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time boating and sport fishing, cooking, traveling and enjoying the Intracoastal Waterway. Why Experience Matters: I have worked hard to become a successful Realtor/Broker in today's market. I first became interested in Real Estate while working as an Insurance Sales Agent. While selling insurance I attended the American College of Bryn Mawr, PA gaining valuable insight to the financial market, which served as the foundation of my Real Estate career. I am a strong believer of the motto “knowledge is power." I understand that just holding a Real Estate is a license is not enough to do the tasks expected by quality Realtors in today’s market. As a previous Coldwell Banker Franchise Owner, I have real insight on both the front and back side of every type of real estate transaction. Giving Back Being a Wilmington Native, I am thrilled to give back to my community. I have served on many area charity boards and committees, such as American Heart Association, The American Red Cross, Boy Scouts of America, The MDA “WOW” Events, WRAR Real Estate Auction and Food Fair, and Realtors Helping Realtors.

Tyson Emery



Growing up in Kalamazoo, Michigan on beautiful Gull Lake I learned how much I enjoy living near water. During my college years I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduated in 2003. Wilmington is home for me, my lovely wife, Rachel, our daughter, and our 3 dogs, Brandon, Airlie and Duke. We enjoy everything that Wilmington has to offer from the beaches to the historical richness that still can be seen today in the downtown riverfront area. With my mortgage background stretching over the course of 7 years and my several years of experience in the Real Estate industry I have proven that I get the job done. My Real Estate career has allowed me the privilege to work with several clients which has consistently landed me in the top 1% every year. PASSION, KNOWLEDGE, PERSISTENCE and SERVICE is what I deliver.

Fred Teachey



As a Wilmington Native, I have lived the majority of my life in this area. This has given me an extreme knowledge and understanding of the area. I have seen Wilmington grow from a small coastal town to a thriving city that now survives on many industries and has become one of North Carolina's favorite vacation destinations. I come to Keller Williams Realty with over 20 years of experience in the real estate business. I initially started selling lots for a large developer, to then selling houses and large acreage tracts, and eventually developing property myself. With this wealth of experience I can make sure you get the expertise and knowledge that you expect from your agent. I am a graduate of North Carolina State University. I worked several years in the mortgage industry before finding my real passion with real estate. When not working, I try to spend the majority of my time boating on the various waterways with my friends and family.

Charles Swain



As a Wilmington resident for over 46 years, I have had the pleasure of calling this beautiful town my home. I am proud to say I have lived here since I was 3 years old, seeing lots of changes and growth along the way. The city of Wilmington and its beaches are Hot Spots for vacationers throughout the year, continuing to bring growth to the Port City. I joined Keller Williams with 26 years experience as a local Wilmington business owner. I have had the opportunity to meet thousands of people of all ages, many being repeat customers for more than 20 years. Needless to say, I am a people person and believe in customer service. I like to discover the needs and wants of my clients and help them achieve their goals, and I value the trust my clients have in me. By joining the dynamic team of KBT Realty, I am confident I can help you with your real estate needs. I enjoy spending my free time outdoors, whether it be walks on the beach with my wife or basketball games in the backyard with my youngest son. The father of 2 sons, 1 recently graduated from college and 1 in high school, I have also had the pleasure of coaching team sports along the way. Teaching values to our youth is one of my passions, knowing that “The Youth Is The Future!”

Rick Binford



My personal mission has always been about helping people create new futures for themselves and their families. And having the privilege of facilitating a move to a new neighborhood, finding a new home, or creating new income through investment properties, is a very rewarding way to do just that. After a 25+ year sales and marketing career in the travel and hospitality industry, real estate offers just the right opportunity to combine my love for sales and marketing innovation, along with win-win contract negotiations and building strong personal relationships to impact the lives of people around me in ways that truly matter. After having lived all over the country, and finally finding my way here to beautiful coastal NC, the opportunity to share all the great things that this area has to offer with others, makes “work” seem like “play” every single day! With a deep commitment to “doing the right thing – always," and enjoying plenty of laughter at every opportunity, regardless of whether your objective is to enjoy the highest possible returns from the sale of your most precious asset or your goal is the hunt for your next “living the dream” or vacation get-away home here in beautiful Brunswick County, as your NC Broker by the Sea, I guarantee to make it fun, fast, and fruitful. By working together with my outstanding partners at KBT Realty - the #1 producing team in the region and the #1 real estate firm in the world - I can assure that all my customers experience the level of customer service excellence they deserve.

Ryan Naylor



Originally from New York, I moved to Wilmington in 2005. I've loved it ever since. Being one of the youngest agents at Keller Williams allows me to connect even more with first time home buyers, and help them make one of the biggest decisions in their lives. I love the opportunity to help people see and realize their goals and where they want to be in life.

Johna Herbinger



I am a recent transplant to the Carolina coast from a small town in upstate New York. My family and I love living here - we enjoy the beautiful beaches and all the benefits the area has to offer. My Real Estate career has been such a rewarding experience, I am so grateful to have a job I love. I am a Certified Buyers representative and love helping people in their real estate goals, whether it’s finding their starter home, dream home, or an investment property. Let me earn your business and show you what it is like to be a part of an experienced winning team.

I am skilled in Negotiation, Sales, Multiple Listing Service, First Time Home Buyers, New Home Sales, Residential, New Construction, and Farms.

I love spending time enjoyed the many social activities in the area, relaxing at the beach, and life on the water.

Billy Thorpe



“You are only as good as your resources.” - Will Stern. I heard this quote in 2005 as an 18-year-old college student and decided at that moment, not only did I want to surround myself with great resources, but I wanted to make sure I was a great resource to everyone around me. It’s been 14 years since then, I spent 8 of those years as a youth leader and media director at a local church in Bristol, VA and I’ve spent the last 6 years running a custom apparel/promotions business that I learned from watching YouTube videos. In 2014 my wife, Ashley, and I got married on Oak Island. We fell in love with the area and moved to Wilmington in 2015 with our two dogs Kevin and Wilson. In 2018 we bought our first home (with the help of Tyson and the KBT Team) and very shortly after, we had our sweet son, Oliver. I decided to get licensed as an agent because of our experience with KBT Realty. As a business owner, I appreciated and was impressed by the commitment to win on our behalf that the whole team brought to the table even when unforeseen things came up. They literally treated us like family from day one and coached us through the process. I joined this industry because I want to provide the same experience for you, your family and friends. I work with the #1 producing team in the region of the #1 real estate company in the world. I would love the opportunity to be a great resource for you during your journey of buying, selling or investing in real estate. When I’m not working you can catch me on the beach, fishing or co-hosting a saltwater fishing podcast called Eastern Current. I look forward to connecting with you.

Sally Harling



With over 10 years of retail sales experience, I look forward to helping you reach your individual real estate goals, whether you are in the market to buy or sell, by discovering your individual real estate goals and delivering on your expectations. I pride myself in providing an exceptional client experience, continuously honing my craft and understanding market trends. Selling? Selling a home can be time consuming & stressful. I’ll effectively list, market and help you sell your home by using the most innovative & forward-thinking approach. Buying? There are a lot of steps when it comes to the purchase of a home. I'll be your trusted real estate advocate, adviser, negotiator and confidant every step of the way. Having been born into a military family, I am familiar with moving and relocating. I’ve lived in many states throughout my life, but North Carolina has always been home. My educational background is in Anthropology; people & culture have always fascinated me. When I am not working you will often find me spending time “adventuring” outdoors. I love spending time with family, friends and fur baby Max a.k.a Mad Max. Capturing moments through photography, making life-long memories and striving for a faith driven lifestyle are all vitally important to me as well.

Janine Pugh

Director of Client Development / Broker-Realtor


Having started my Real Estate career in 1997 in Westchester, NY, I am very happy to now be part of the Keller Williams family. I moved to Wilmington, NC the summer of 2005 and have never looked back. Since moving here I have been very involved with my children’s schools and activities. I’ve devoted countless hours to various volunteer efforts including 7 years with the PTA, one as PTA President of my children’s school. I have been the tournament chair for the L9GA at the Country Club of Landfall, I also Co-chaired the 2010 CCL Pink Ribbon Event which benefits the New Hanover Regional Medical Center, in addition to being Silent Auction Chair for the 2016 Cape Fear Heart Ball. Now it is time for me to help you find the home you’ve been dreaming about. I look forward to meeting you and your family. I know you are going to love living in Southeastern NC as much as I do.

Teri Moylan

Director of Growth


I grew up in North Carolina in the town of Goldsboro and attended Appalachian State University and then spent two years working in Chapel Hill. I earned my MBA at The University of Tennessee in Knoxville. After having spent 7 years in marketing, I realized I was uniquely positioned to combine the expertise of my business and marketing background to help others make one of the most important decisions of their lives, real estate investments – whether to call someplace home or be on the path to wealth through investing. I spent 10 years as a licensed agent in Reno, NV where I grew a small team and then chose to return home to North Carolina to live near the beach and family. I was a top producing agent not because of chance, but because of persistence and education. I always cared deeply about my clients and refused to let them fail, negotiating on their behalf and educating them so they could make the best decision for their families. As the Director of Growth and Operations for KBT Realty of Keller Williams, I take that same approach with agents. I understand that when I pour into our agents and help them become their best selves and live their lives by design, that in turn, our team is better positioned to help more families achieve their dreams! To be able to know exactly what activities can drive your results makes funding your life predictable, and I want everyone who is interested in a career in real estate to hear that message and engage in the tools that makes it happen. I believe whole-heartedly in the missions, visions and values of Keller Williams and that our agents can change lives. When I’m not seeking opportunities for other agents, I enjoy spending time with my family, including my silly and entertaining son, Jonah. Travel, reading, photography and enjoying time at the beach rank at the top of my happy-times list. I consider myself blessed to be a part of a company that puts family first!

Mary Ellen Slugg

Director of Operations


I am originally from Clifton, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, DC where I engaged in the private practice of law for over 20 years. It was a general law practice with a strong emphasis on both residential and commercial real estate transactions. I earned my undergraduate degree from George Mason University with a B.S. in Public Administration and my law degree from George Mason University School of Law. My dream since I was young was to call the beach my home. I discovered Kure Beach in 2003 and instantly fell in love. Finally, in 2014, I made the leap and moved to Kure Beach permanently. I was lucky to have my dream come true. My life philosophy is an individual should always give back to their tribe and help it grow and flourish, to assist in realizing its goals and dreams.

Kristine Roody

Transaction Coordinator


I was born in northern Virginia and relocated to Wilmington in 1996. Much of my professional background over the years has revolved around the housing industry as an administrator for builders, architects and subcontractors. For the last 7 years, I worked as a legal assistant with a real estate closing attorney. I joined KBT Realty in 2015 as the transaction coordinator doing what I love best, making the process of purchasing a new home as easy and enjoyable as possible

Salina Wilkins

Seller Services Coordinator


I’m originally from Jacksonville, FL, but lived all over the country throughout a twenty year career in the Marine Corps. I settled in this area with my two beautiful children in 2011. In a variety of job positions, I’ve served at every level of customer service and am passionate about providing a high level of support and client satisfaction. I joined KBT Realty in 2017 as the Listing Coordinator and have enjoyed assessing client needs and assisting in their real estate journey!

Sandie Loudermilk

Listing Coordinator


Sandie has been in and out of Real Estate since 2001, first licensed in Georgia and now in North Carolina. When her children were young, Sandie and her husband, Mark, moved their family of four from Atlanta to Wilmington for a change of pace. Sandie took the opportunity to homeschool her girls and enjoyed daily life with them, while working only part-time until her kids entered high school. “Admin” has seemingly always been Sandie’s middle name. When she became a Realtor, people would often ask, “What do you do as a real estate agent?” … to which she would laughingly reply, “Now, I’m my OWN secretary!” Over time, she realized how much she truly loved the task portion of real estate. She still gets to communicate with people daily, but she is at her very best when helping others succeed. When she’s not working, Sandie finds joy in Family Fun Nights (even though her kids are grown), putting her bare toes in the beach sand, perusing Hallmark Card Shops, hand-writing letters, and baking up a storm. She also loves power walks under the NC blue skies and is an avid reader, suspense-movie watcher, & jigsaw puzzle put-together-er!
