Located in downtown Southport, RE/MAX Southern Coast specializes in Southport, St. James, Caswell Beach, Oak Island, Bald Head Island, Boiling Spring Lakes, Supply, and Bolivia. Partners Robert Carroll, Donna Findlay and Fred Flieler chose Southport as home base for the company as it draws traffic for all of south central Brunswick County.
Robert and Donna have long been recognized as top performers in area real estate listings and sales. Their unique business relationship and personal styles offer their clients an unmatched advantage when navigating the sale or purchase of a property. Their desire to take their business relationship to a new level culminated in adding Donna’s husband, Fred Flieler as a third partner in opening RE/MAX Southern Coast.
Partnering with Donna and Robert Carroll in opening RE/MAX Southern Coast seemed a natural progression. Fred brings a significant amount of business, management and financial expertise to the team. “Donna and Robert have been very successful as a sales team for several years now. Through their reputation and professional network in the market, we have been able to attract some of the area’s best and most experienced agents who share our vision of a work environment that is energetic, professional and positive,” said Fred.
Another key player on the RE/MAX Southern Coast management team is Office Manager Judy Houck. A native North Carolinian, Judy and her husband, who is also named Fred, moved to Southport eleven years ago from Marina del Ray, California. “We loved the town on our first visit. While keeping its quaint charm, Southport is a vibrant community. You can relax or be as active as you choose to be. It’s all here.”
She is instrumental to the smooth operation of the office and interacts with prospective clients providing administrative support to the company’s agents. “Working with Robert, Donna, Fred and the agents is rewarding for me professionally and sometimes, just plain fun. It’s a lively, high energy environment that we all enjoy.”
Jessica Wainwright was named Broker-In-Charge of RE/MAX Southern Coast in late 2020. Jessica found the perfect fit with her personal business philosophy. “The culture that owners Robert Carroll, Donna Findlay, and Fred Flieler have created is exactly what I hoped to find. Their openness to always trying something new and their obvious love of their agents and community made the decision of being broker-in-charge for RE/MAX Southern
Coast very easy.”
Jessica's background in corporate relocation, real estate marketing and sales, paired with her knowledge of the newest technologies in digital and social media marketing, give RE/MAX Southern Coast an added edge that not only gains their sellers the maximum exposure for their properties but also provides valuable tools and content to their agents that help buyers make the most informed home buying decisions.
The agents at RE/MAX Southern Coast represent a “Who’s Who” in area real estate sales. For some, real estate is a second full-time career, while others focused on the industry from the beginning. The group includes a former executive at IBM, a Product Team Leader from General Motors and even a retired Air Force officer who served at the Pentagon. Most importantly, they each have developed their real estate careers purposefully and embrace the shared vision behind RE/MAX Southern Coast to be open, honest and focused on their clients needs, whether buyer or seller.
“Connecting with my clients as individuals and focusing on their unique wants and needs is a priority for me. It is important to me to constantly strive to better serve the community around me and my clients by offering one-of-a-kind service that makes them feel at ease with the entire process.”Visit Amanda's Website
