Paige Ferrin, Broker
Ten states and 2 foreign countries has given me an appreciation for community and the occasional borrowed cup of sugar. Thirty plus years of military service (as both a spouse and Navy veteran) has given me a unique perspective on “Real Estate”. My husband’s retirement and finding our forever home here on the Southern Outer Banks of North Carolina offers the opportunity to utilize my more than 25 years of business management experience, organizational skills, tenaciousness, and attention to detail to help others find their forever home.
