Kirkland E Pugh



I am a 25-year hospitality professional turned real estate broker. 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. Our two dogs allow us to stay there with them.

Becky Brown



I am one of the few true natives of Wilmington. I live, play and focus my time on the Middle Sound, Ogden and Porters Neck areas. However, 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 am married to FF Adam Brown of the Wrightsville Beach Fire Department. 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 we are not working, Adam and I enjoy spending time boating and sport fishing, cooking, travelling and enjoying the Intracoastal Waterway with our beagle, Tracker. 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 her 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.

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 and my lovely wife, Rachel, 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, Fred has lived the majority of his life in this area. This has given him an extreme knowledge and understanding of the area. He has 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. Fred comes to Keller Williams Realty with over 20 years of experience in the real estate business. He initially started selling lots for a large developer, to then selling houses and large acreage tracts, and eventually developing property himself. With this wealth of experience he will make sure you get the expertise and knowledge that you expect from your agent. Fred is a graduate of North Carolina State University. He worked several years in the mortgage industry before finding his real passion with real estate. When not working, Fred tries to spend the majority of his time boating on the various waterways with his friends and family.

Debbie Alford



I have lived in Wilmington for over 17 years. I can't imagine calling any other place "home". I would love the opportunity to help you buy or sell a home in this beautiful area and be by your side, from beginning to end. This will be one of the biggest financial decisions that you will make and my promise is to work hard for you, from beginning to end, representing my clients best interest. The KBT Team partners with the best vendors in the area, to help you secure your mortgage, homeowners insurance, inspectors, and other professional services that you may need. Prior to a career in real estate, I was a Montessori teacher for 13 years but the most important job I have is being a "Mom". After raising two wonderful children, I decided to make the switch from teacher to realtor, which are very similar careers. You must be patient, kind, and caring, while advocating for only the best, whether it be for a student or client. My service will not end, once the buying or selling process is over, and we leave the closing table. I hope that we will call each other friends and I will have gained your trust and loyalty. I look forward to meeting you and assisting you with all of your real estate needs. 910.262.0101

License Number: NC 290531

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.

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 & Operations


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!

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

Listing Coordinator


Linda Williams

Marketing Coordinator/Photographer


Growing up in New England, I began my real estate career as many do, working in the computer industry! With an undergraduate degree in Marketing, I worked my way into software programming, which over time, I evolved into a sales and marketing position. As happened in the late ‘80s and early 90’s, my “lifelong” employer went out of business. However, the birth of the world wide web had come along and graced me with a new set of skills. I started my own business helping “mom and pop” restaurants develop websites, and yes, I was paid with food! While a culinary treat, I went back to graduate school for technical communication and information design thinking that I would move into technical writing. After a brutal winter in Boston, my husband and I decided to begin our slow migration south and we landed in Northern Virginia, where somehow, I began working for a new home builder. There, I learned the finer points of new home construction and design—like how to read blueprints , what a superslab is and how the Nehemiah Program worked! I then took the next logical step into residential real estate. I hung my license with Weichert Realtors for several years where I learned all the ins and outs of residential and commercial real estate as well as and property leasing. I also collected a wide array of industry designations including ABR, CDRS, SFR, ASP and GREEN! (Add some chicken and carrots and it makes a nice alphabet soup.) One day I decided to gather up all my business, sales, marketing and real estate knowledge and start my own brokerage. Having started the business after the housing bubble burst, these were some of my most challenging and rewarding work years. Helping people become homeowners in a housing market dominated by short sales and foreclosures—JOY! It wasn’t until then that I really learned about the intricacies of mold remediation, pest management (mostly bugs, yuck), the battery life of flashlights and how to put together a foreclosure hardship package! After the millionth traffic jam and several more bad winters, we decided it was time again to move to even warmer weather and sandy beaches. At that point, I decided to leave my real estate license behind, but still wanted to work in the real estate world. I am now doing what I do best for the KBT Team at Keller Williams Realty. I’m able to utilize my software, business, marketing, communications, staging and real estate experience to provide the team and their clients with top notch service and support. So, while my path may have taken some weird twists and turns, it’s landed me in the perfect place with the KBT Team
