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.

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 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.

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



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.

Anne Rose

Director of Marketing


I cannot remember a time I haven’t wanted to be involved with marketing and communications. I started my career as a journalist, but quickly moved into management, primarily in non-profit organizations and higher education institutions. Born and raised outside of Boston, Massachusetts, I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing mentors – and witness some of the best professional sports – in my life. Both have played a key role in the solid work ethic I have adopted. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI – and although I love to cook, I graduated with a BS in Marketing. I later attended Brown University where I earned a graduate certificate in Management Studies. Prior to joining KBT Realty Group as Director of Marketing, I served as the Director of Digital Marketing & Strategic Initiatives with Focus EduVation and Focus EduSolutions where I was instrumental in building the Online Program Management practice and was responsible for building marketing, recruitment, and enrollment operations for online programs offered by colleges and universities. I previously served as Director of Marketing & Public Relations for Fisher College, a private, liberal arts institution located in Boston, MA. I recently relocated to Wilmington and know this is where I want to call my home Joining KBT Realty Group has been a perfect transition for me as it will not only help me further hone by experience and skills in a new industry, it will enable me to plant the roots I am hoping as I embrace the Wilmington community.
