Jessica (or “Jess” as she is known by many) was born & raised in the small farm town of Benson, North Carolina. Every summer her family spent time vacationing at her grandparent’s home on Topsail Island. Some of her favorite childhood memories were spent on the coast of NC and the ocean has always felt like her “safe haven.”
So naturally, after graduating with an Associate’s Degree in Business, Jessica decided Wilmington was the perfect location to begin her career with the local Home Builder's Association. There she was involved with the large scale projects such as the Parade of Homes and Sales & Marketing Council. This was her first of many opportunities to work directly with builders, contractors & realtors in the surrounding area. In 2005, Jessica joined the Intracoastal Realty family as an Agent Manager working directly under the Broker-in-Charge overseeing 80+ realtors and obtained her real estate license.
She continued her career path within the building industry as a mortgage loan processor and then with a commercial real estate & development company. These opportunities only continued to enhance her knowledge & experience throughout the Carolinas in the property management & development world. But her passion for the individual connection within residential real estate brought her back to Intracoastal Realty. Along with the opportunity to work for one of the Nation's top real estate teams, it was an easy move to return to what she loved & so she joined the Keith Beatty Team. "I consider it an honor & privilege to be a part of such a wonderful team with an amazing presence in the community. I am blessed to be on Keith's team & to be able to learn & work alongside such great people...it truly is like family. I guess we're just one big Beatty Bunch!”
In her spare time, Jessica enjoys gardening, reading, volleyball, boating, fishing, attending church on Sunday & spending time with her family, friends & four legged fur-kids, Lily & Hadley. Jessica is an active volunteer with the Brigade Boys & Girls Club and serves as a committee member with the Eastern NC Make-a-Wish Foundation. In the world of real estate, Jessica strives “to put my client's needs first & listening is the key...I make every effort to check all the boxes on their dream home wish list!” Jessica is excited to begin helping you make that wish a reality!
