With the spirit of Thanksgiving, we are looking back at a year that has been fraught with challenges, and overflowing with opportunity.
KBT Realty Group and our partners have had the privilege of serving hundreds of clients with what for many is the largest financial transaction of their lives: buying and selling real estate. Despite the challenges of a global pandemic, lockdowns/re-openings, travel restrictions, personal interaction restrictions, and redefining the way we all are managing our work- and home-lives, at KBT, we have both survived, and thrived.
I am so thankful for the continued support of my friends, clients throughout the whacky year!
Becky Brown, Co-owner, KBT Realty Group
Thankful for our staff, our terrific agents, our wonderful clients and of course, the joy of being with family during the holidays!

Fred Teachey, Broker/Realtor, shares what he loves about the six bedroom single family home - and the ocean views - on the north end of Carolina Beach.
What is unique about this property?
The location is magnificent! On the north end of Carolina Beach, it's a two-block walk to the Carolina Beach Fishing Pier and two blocks in the opposite direction to beautiful sandy beaches. This is a single family home with typical southeastern coastal construction: parking is under the home, with stairs up to the first floor where there are four bedrooms, and then up again to the third floor and two additional bedrooms plus a large open kitchen + living space that is perfect for lounging and entertaining.
The double porches are awesome, with ocean views and plenty of room for outdoor dining.
This home has a history as a successful vacation rental - it has been BOOKED SOLID from January through September, so if you opt not to live here full-time, your beachfront home will hel ...

After Hurricane Florence hit southeastern coastal North Carolina in 2018, KBT Realty agents spent the better part of the ensuing two years helping homeowners deal with the aftermath. Homeowners confronted storm-related flooding and navigated flood insurance issues. Our challenge was to formulate and execute a way to care for our clients' interests going forward.
Two years later, with the 2020 hurricane season almost behind us, Kirk Pugh, KBT Realty Group co-owner, reflects on the lessons learned from the Hurricane Florence disaster.
Why do is flood insurance coverage so misunderstood in the scheme of homeowners insurance options?
Kirk: I think many view insurance as a necessary evil and yet another box to check on the to-do list. In our coastal area, many homebuyers are uneducated on the distinctions between Basic Hazard, Wind and Hail, and Flood insurance.
Further, they do not understand common exclusions or necessary endorsements needed to make sure they are truly prot ...
