Meet Johna Herbinger, Broker Realtor with KBT Realty in Wilmington NC. Johna moved to the Topsail Island Beach area a year ago, from New York state. She and her family wanted to be near the water, and chose Surf City because it was the closest she could get without being directly on the beach.
She often walks the beach before sunrise. Every Wednesday morning, she volunteers with the Topsail Turtle Project, walking one mile of beach looking for turtle nests during nesting season.
Johna points out that Realtor.com recently posted an article that states Topsail Island is one of the most affordable beach communities in the United States. The name "Topsail" actually came from the pirates who used to hide behind the island on their ships, waiting to see the tops of the sails of ships to attack for riches.
Johna sells real estate from Hampstead south to Holden Beach: the whole southeastern North Carolina coast. She is happy to introduce prospective buyers to t ...

Meet Rebecca Robbins, Broker, Realtor with the KBT Realty Group, and her dog Mazy. Rebecca is new to the KBT Team in Wilmington NC.
Rebecca loves Wilmington, and the Cape Fear area's dog-friendly attributes a are high on the list of reasons she chooses to live here. She tries to take Mazy with her everywhere she goes. From parks, outdoor restaurants, beer gardens, farmers' markets, and even many retail stores, options for dog owners are numerous.
One of Rebecca's favorite places to walk with Mazy is Smith Creek Park, off Gordon Road. Smith Creek Park offers a beautiful dog-friendly walking trail. In the summer, the park trail is particularly inviting in the evening when the temperature has cooled a bit and the sun is ready to set. Smith Creek Park is near Murrayville, and Rebecca loves showing clients homes that any dog would approve of.

Meet Broker/Realtor Ryan Naylor, the youngest member of the KBT Realty Group team, with seven month on the job, after passing his North Carolina state real estate exam on the first try. Ryan has already had success in real estate, with showings and closings.
Why real estate? As Ryan says, real estate is pretty much in the family: his mother is a Realtor, currently doing inside sales at KBT Realty; his father was a Wall Street commercial lender; Kirk Pugh, Ryan's step father, is also his Broker-in-Charge; and, his grandfather is a producing agent.
As a Millennial, the tech-friendly environment at Keller Williams is especially appealing. He sees the company rolling out new technology on a daily basis. The Kelle app puts tools at a seller's fingertips, and makes buyers' searches more efficient and focused. Ryan notes that technology can empower an agent with personalization and information that makes the best use of both real estate expertise and a clients' time.
