  PDF  | Print |  E-mail   Nolan Formalarie Nolan Formalarie came to the coast of North Carolina for the sunny weather, a change in lifestyle and the tranquility of white sandy beaches.  After achieving a marketing degree from the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Nolan worked as a Marketing Consultant for Black & Decker/DeWalt.  A two month stay in Charlotte, NC prompted Nolan to visit the NC Coast and St. James Plantation, which he soon made home.   "The first impression of character is often the most important.  It is my belief that in first communication with prospective owners they should be treated as if they were a long trusted colleague or friend. This means demonstrating trust, honesty and above all, integrity". Nolan has lived and owne...

Believe it or not.  I have had a very busy spring and summer.  There is so much more activity in the Southport~Oak Island area of Brunswick County North Carolina.  We had such a disasterous year in 2009 and 2010..that it could not get any worse. I do hope that you are having the same results now also.  It is harder but at least if you keep working it will come..   Take care, Ginger

Like many small towns around the country, Southport is fortunate to have a viable and growing farmer’s market. Every Wednesday from 8-1, locals and visitors can enjoy a beautiful selection of produce from local farmers and unique creations from area artisans. Back that up with the breezy, blue backdrop of the Cape Fear River and the plunky sounds of bluegrass coming from the front porch of the historic Garrison House, you know you are experiencing Southport at its very best.So come on, local residents, lets put Brunswick County food on our table. Is it my just imagination that the small, tender squash fixed for dinner tonight tasted richer and sweeter than what I buy from the "big three?" I don’t think so. Let’s commit ourselves to supporting our young farmers and talented artisans… th...

June 9, 2011 Well, the other day I was trying to figure out why I had so much time on my hands and realized that I have not been on Active Rain for a while.  I do not know that I have much to share, but wanted to get back into the swing of thing. Business is really picking up and I am doing right much volume right now. Hope that it is good for you too.   Take care, Ginger Harper of Southport, North Carolina

We held our breath, our heart was pounding, as the auctioneer..... We attended a Live on the Lawn Auction this afternoon. We waited in anticipation for our clients home to be announced. They planned to bid live on line while the auction was Live on the Lawn. The home they planned to bid on is located in the gated golf community of St.James Plantation in Southport, North Carolina. Our client had flown down April 2nd from Ohio to preview the home located on the 10th hole of the Member's course. The bidding started at a preset price and quickly rose to the point where our clients had decided was their cut off point.  The auctioneer loudly announced our clients first name, and we held our breath as he stated their final bid, and he repeated it over and over ~ suddenly a woman standing to th...

Some of our "100 Days to Greatness" folks went to the Richmond, Virginina, Turning Point classes with Brian Buffini. They came back so pumped up and ready to do business and I will plan to go to the next course that they have close to me. I know that the system works because, last week, I had 3 listings and 1 sale...using the Buffini System. Are you Buffinied...   Ginger Harper
