    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    Why use me as your real estate professional? That's easy: I have the knowledge. I have 14 years experience in the Vacation Rental Industry. Working with both long-term/year-round rentals and weekly vacation rentals, I know the ins and outs of the vacation rental market. This experience-combined with being an Outer Banks native who knows the area, the schools, and the people-makes me the expert to help you make a sound decision when purchasing or selling a home on the Outer Banks.

    As long as I can remember, I have had a love for houses, from the construction to the design choices. I spent most of my childhood weekends with my brother and dad on job sites. My dad was in construction and my mom worked weekends, so off to work with my dad we went. I would play Barbies on piles of lumber and have picnic lunches in houses that weren't even framed yet. I have an eye for design, so if it's a diamond in the rough that you're looking for, I have it covered.

    My husband, Cliff, is a native of the Currituck mainland who owns and operates a pool and spa company as well as an audio video company. He is just one of the valuable contacts whose experience and knowledge I can offer to my clients. Cliff and I have 2 fantastic boys - Ben and Oliver and we recently built our second home together in Southern Shores. They say that building a house together makes the marriage stronger. Well, I can attest to that being true!

    In my spare time, I love being with my family, cooking, and enjoying the beautiful Outer Banks that I'm lucky enough to call my home.

    Brent gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    Christy is a fantastic realtor! I had a million questions about purchasing a house in the area and she was able to answer them all! She's very knowledgeable with the market and what to expect for renting. She's extremely patient and super friendly! She really listens to what we were looking for. We purchased from out of state and she made it an easy process. She found us the house of our dreams and very, very happy with our purchase. We look forward to working with her again in the future!

    Christy was absolutely amazing! She was very responsive and really held our hand throughout our whole first time home buying process. We felt as if she really cared about our best interests. She worked hard for us and we couldn't be any happier with her professionalism and knowledge. I would reccomend Christy to anyone buying or selling real estate. We really just cannot thank her enough for all of her efforts. A++.

    Kristen gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    I wish I could give Christy more than 5 stars! As first time buyers in the Outer Banks, the market and buying process for a rental home was all new to us. Christy was knowledgeable on the ins and out of buying a rental home in this currently crazy market. She helped us every step of the way and made what could have been a difficult process easy for us. Her experience, local knowledge, responsiveness and attention to detail make it easy for us to recommend her to others. It was important we found an agent we could trust and would understand our needs, and we were so thankful to have found all of that and more in Christy.
    Haley gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    From the start I called Christy our rockstar. She worked SO hard to get us into the house we are in today. I couldn't have made it without her especially when our first option fell through. She remained positive and 100% on our side the whole time. Her intensive knowledge of the whole house buying process was everything these first time buyers needed. We truly could not have done this without her. Christy, thank you so much!
    Amy gave Christy 5 stars out of 5

    Christy worked extremely hard to find us the Beach home to meet our needs. She knows the area and her real estate market thoroughly and is a professional in every sense of the word.

    Christy Cartwright was an instrumental part in making our dream of a home in the Outerbanks come true. She spent several Saturdays showing us homes of different sizes, locations, and conditions and patiently supported us as we evaluated what was most important for our family. She has a wealth of knowledge about the Outerbanks, buying a house in such and beautiful, yet complex, area and she readily shared her expertise without making us feel pressured or rushed. We will be renting to vacationers during the summer months and Christy gave us invaluable advice on working with rental companies, marketing our new investment, and partnering with local vendors for home repairs and renovations. Throughout the Offer and Closing process, Christy was always available to answer questions, reducing our anxiety in the process. I could not have been happier with Christy's services and guidance and would strongly recommend her services to anyone, anytime.
    Dana gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    We were a long-distance seller of a vacation home. Christy's knowledge of the area and her support during the selling process was excellent. She always took the time to respond to our questions, provided guidance on North Carolina's laws and timely follow through on any issues that came up. We wholeheartedly recommended her as an agent.
    Stephanie gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    Christy is amazing! I cannot speak highly enough of the service she offers. Friendly, professional and was available day or night to answer any questions we had. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
    Megan gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    I absolutely loved working with Christy. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and easy to talk to. I am a single mom, and she was so helpful in guiding me through the home purchasing process, especially given my unique circumstances and needs. I would highly recommend working with Christy for your home sale or purchase. I can't say enough good things about her!
    Clay gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    Christy was superstar helping us with our purchase! She had enough understanding of work we were requesting to be done based on our inspection and ensured that it was done properly. This is a comfort when you are purchasing from out of town and have to rely on someone to help out. Christy was that person. She even met contractors as needed in our absence to see the projects through! Christy is positive with a great personality and this makes it very easy to work with her.
    John gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    Christy is so very knowledgeable and made our buying experience so enjoyable! From coordinating the inspection and speaking with our lender to giving us names of local attorneys and insurance agents, she was always there to help and make sure things ran smoothly. Her professionalism is unmatched.

    Shanna gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    Christy Cartwright is extremely gifted in her field. She was absolutely amazing in trying to help me get into my new home. She was always friendly, always accommodating, always organized and prepared. I could not have asked for a better person to help me look at potential homes. She always went out of her way to have everything set up and ready to go when I would come up for a visit to look around. I highly recommend her as a realtor and respect and admire her as a genuine person and friend.
    Karen gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    Christy's passion and enthusiasm for her work is very evident! She is thorough, patient and always positive. Not being from the area or in the area during the time we were purchasing, it was a relief to have Christy's input and consistent communication. It has been a pleasure to work with her and we highly recommend her to anyone who wants to feel secure and satisfied in a realty situation. Karen and John Dickinson

    I have worked with Christy over the past 7 years. She works with many clients at once, yet she always made me feel like I was her only one. Her dedication, responsiveness and commitment set her apart from all others. I would highly recommend her.
    Peter gave Christy 5 stars out of 5
    I have worked with Christy for at least 15 Years in her role as a property manager. By far, she is one of the most talented individuals I know. Besides being personable, she is a woman of her word and consistently delivers outstanding service. She follows up on every task and gives you a truthful answer to any question even if it's something you don't want to hear. . . . but she doesn't stop there. She'll offer solutions and give you her honest opinion and advice. Personable, Honest, Dedicated, Customer Service, Professional are just some of the words I'd use to describe her. If you're working with her, you've made a great choice!

    Rodanthe “Jug Handle” Bridge Opening April 2022

    As a homeowner in the Outer Banks area, you have undoubtedly heard about the Rodanthe "Jug Handle" Bridge construction the last few years. This bridge, spanning 2.4 miles over the Pamlico Sound, was designed to provide a safe route between the northern Outer Banks and Hatteras Island by side stepping a stretch of N.C. 12 that is often compromised by extreme coastal weather. After many years of planning and construction, the bridge is finally opening to the public this month!N.C. 12 Rodanthe...

    How To Create An Inviting Laundry Room

    We can all agree that doing laundry is probably not the way you want to spend the day off. This disdain may even make your laundry room one of your least favorite rooms in your house. However, just because laundry can be an arduous task doesn't mean your laundry room has to be an unwelcoming, dark space full of clutter. In fact, a well-organized space can actually make you feel more focused and productive. A bright, clean space can even put you in a better headspace to complete your least favori...

    Introducing A New Pet To Your Pet Household

    The joys of pet ownership are bountiful and endless. Between cute kitten "biscuits" and evening walks with man's best friend, many homeowners don't feel their family is complete until bringing a pet into the home. In fact, according to the 2021-2022 National Pet Owners Survey, 70% of American households own at least one pet. At roughly 69 million families with a dog and 45 million families with a cat, it goes without saying that we love our fur kids—and if one pet makes for a happy house, than 2...
