“It’s not what we say that matters, it’s what our clients say”

From start to finish, Caroline was a professional and she gave our listing very personalized service. Caroline was forthright, knowledgeable and always an advocate for our best interests. There is no one I would recommend more highly than her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Wilmington, NC.

Caroline was excellent in all aspects of selling our home. We had used another realtor trying to sell our house (prior to Caroline) without any offers made, then we found Caroline and company (Living Seaside Reality Group). She walked us through what would make our home sell and provided insight to what the market and prospective buyers were looking for in a home. She was spot on with her property and house analysis giving us the ability to sell our house in the timeframe we wanted. Her staging skills were excellent and when negotiation for an offer came around she was savvy in making sure we got the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend Caroline and would use her again here in all my real estate needs. Top Notch!

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $375K in Hampstead, NC.

My husband and I have moved and purchased homes in various states over the years. We recently purchased a home here in Wilmington, using Caroline Dugas, at Living Seaside Realty Group. We were doing this from out of state, which complicated the process. We flew in twice to look at homes and to get familiar with the Wilmington area. Caroline made the process so much better than it would have been otherwise, in fact, it was fun!

Caroline knows the area well, and provided great insight, helping us to hone in on areas that are best-suited to us. She's reliable, knowledgeable, professional, and personable. All other realty professionals (mortgage bankers, insurance agents, home improvement contractors and co-workers) hold Caroline in the highest regard.

This was the best home purchase experience I ever had. II would not hesitate to select Caroline Dugas again for any realty matter. She's the best!

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $325K in Wilmington, NC.

Caroline Dugas was very professional and knowledgeable about Wilmington real estate. This was very helpful as I am new to the area. She made herself available any time, day or night. She was very patient in answering all of my questions in a timely manner. I was not pressured into buying anything but instead given helpful suggestions as Caroline took the time to get to know me and what I wanted. She was not looking for the big sale but had her client's best interest at heart. Caroline is the best and I will recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

Bought a Condo home in 2016 for approximately $150K in Silver Lake, Wilmington, NC.

Thanks to Caroline we're living in a terrific house down at Carolina Beach. We faced a short time table to purchase a new house after selling both of our places in the triangle in record time. Caroline was available for us several weekends in a row, and eventually picked out our place before we even got a chance to see it.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $400K in Carolina Beach, NC.

I am very particular about service and have high expectations when it comes to receiving high quality service. I cannot speak highly enough about the service I received from agent Caroline Dugas at Living Seaside Realty Group. She is the epitome of professional, conscientious, communicative, informed, and efficient. The woman is a machine! She has talent that I doubt many other realtors have in their field. She has a very strong work ethic, dedication, knowledge (about EVERYTHING) and she is tireless!

I happened upon Caroline while searching homes in the area on Zillow. There was one home in particular that I was interested in, and she had the listing. She already had another offer, and the other offer ended up higher than mine; so I didn't get the house. But Caroline diligently continue to work for me remotely, while I was in California. She made appointments to view numerous homes, took pictures, emailed extensive, detailed information about each one, both pros and cons. She was honest about the downfalls of each home as well as the highlights. She got to know me and what I was looking for, and she wouldn't allow me to get sucked into a house that she knew I wouldn't ultimately love.

Best of all, despite her busy schedule with all of her clients, she made me feel important and valued. After a short while, it was easy to trust in Caroline and know that she had my best interests at heart.

After working with me for over a month, we found a wonderful home 10 minutes from the beach, and she negotiated a price that I wanted to offer, not one that she decided on. We are now in escrow, and she is extremely conscientious about helping me fulfill every item on my due diligence list. When I came into town to look at the house, which is as fabulous as Caroline described it to be, Caroline took me around on a sightseeing tour--even though her kids were at home waiting for her at 6 p.m. on a Friday night.

I feel extraordinarily blessed to have come upon such a wonderful woman and such a fantastic realtor. I highly recommend Caroline. In addition, Caroline works with another lady, Buffy, who is also extremely friendly and helpful. I have also met the other agents and assistants in the office, all friendly and warm. To me, being personable is important when you are working with clients, and I found everyone on Caroline's team to demonstrate sincere southern hospitality!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Leland, NC.

I hadn't bought a house in 25 years and the first time I didn't use a real estate agent, so was not sure how the whole process worked. I had a lot of special requirements to go along with my new house. Caroline was amazing, not only did she find me what I wanted, plus some. She handled everything for me and really looked out for my best interests. She has a good eye for issues when walking through property and really opens your mind up to the potential of properties. I highly recommend Caroline, she is very experienced and knowledgeable agent and again, will put your interests and needs first. I would request her services again without hesitation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Wilmington, NC.

We moved out of Wilmington, NC area sooner than expected and met with Caroline Dugas to represent us in the sale of our house in Leland. Caroline was knowledgeable and her expertise in the market and resale of homes in our area was second to none. Knowing that we would not be around, Caroline made every effort to keep the house ready for every showing and took the time to stage our house as well. She is energized, spent time keeping in contact with us whenever we needed to discuss specifics.

Caroline was always prompt in getting information to us. It was easy to communicate with her via email, phone, etc. and she was always on top of things. She sold our house in 4 months. We would highly recommend anyone to work with Caroline without hesitation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Leland, NC.

After trying to sell our beach home by ourselves and then working for a year with a realtor in a big firm, a friend recommended Caroline. From the beginning, Caroline stepped in with great recommendations on how best to stage the house to make it appealing to buyers. She was assertive, but would also listen to our opinions. We learned the lesson that design and furnishings were not to please us, but to attract buyers. It was a valuable lesson that worked! We have already recommended Caroline to friends and will continue to do so.

Response from Caroline Dugas on 09/16/2015
Thanks Bill and Sybil. I loved helping you sell the house. Doesn't get much better than full price offer on the first showing! Thank you very much for allowing me to come in and "do the Caroline thing" even though it wasn't your thing. I sure am glad it worked well! :)

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Oak Ridge, NC.

Caroline is an outstanding agent. She consistently went above and beyond in each step of the sales process, from listing to sale, and picked up the ball and ran with it anytime anyone else dropped it. The agent representing the buyer for our home was less than responsive, and Caroline filled in wherever and whenever necessary to close the deal. She knows the area well, knows how to stage the home, and made very relevant recommendations to improve appeal and get showings. I would absolutely use her anytime I am listing, or purchasing, a property in the area.

Response from Caroline Dugas on 09/16/2015
Thanks so much for being such a responsive seller under very difficult circumstances and with crazy time zone issues! I appreciate the kind words. I am very happy we got it sold for you in your time frame!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Wilmington, NC.

Hands down the best realtor we worked with. Caroline is a true professional and has the best interest of her clients at heart. She took the time to get to know us, and what we were looking for. It took us well over a year of looking with her, and she still was very responsive to us no matter what time of day it was. Also her negotiations and having a home warranty thrown in saved us a thousand dollars or more when the A/C went out this summer. She goes above and beyond what a normal realtor does. When we were unhappy at the condition the house was left in, Caroline got the other realtor to come by and clean out the junk left by the previous owners, then took it upon herself while recovering from the flu to come by and clean the house between our settlement and recording of the house. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Thank you so much Caroline!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Wilmington, NC.

There are no words to describe how much Caroline did for me in the process of selling my house. She stayed by my side through over a year and a half of struggles. Even though I live over two hours away from the property I was selling, I never had to feel nervous about a single thing because she was my rock and kept everything under control.

Caroline jumped into action the moment I made contact with her. She staged my house beautifully, going above and beyond to get the house in the most marketable shape possible. We received several compliments on how well-staged the house was from potential buyers and their agents. Throughout the entire process, she was always keenly aware of what items needed to be addressed before a potential client went to view the property. There were a few incidents when we couldn’t find a yard service to perform maintenance in the needed time-frame. Many agents would have thrown their hands in the air and let the chips fall where they may. Not Caroline; she took matters into her own hands and trimmed bushes, pulled weeds, and even got on top of the house and cleaned the gutters!

We went under contract several times due to repair issues that were discovered during the inspection process. Thanks to how well Caroline staged the house, it never stayed on the market very long before going back under contract. In the interim periods, Caroline was indispensable in having the needed repairs made. She knows the local area extremely well and has many contacts that she was able to leverage to get repairs made quickly and at more than reasonable prices.

Despite her contacts, we had a difficult time finding a suitable contractor to fix structural damage that was discovered in the crawl space. This was not for lack of trying. She worked relentlessly to find someone. She struggled right alongside me while we dealt with inept and dishonest contractors, and also went to bat for me on more than one occasion when contractors weren't doing what they promised. She made it a point to check in on them while they were working to make sure they were doing what they agreed to do.

Caroline always kept me informed, well-advised, and most importantly, calm. She was the seasoned captain that kept me on course no matter how hard storms raged. She never wavered and was always willing to make sacrifices to make things happen.

I can't stress this point enough: If you're looking to buy or sell a property, Caroline is the advocate you NEED. Having a trustworthy, hardworking agent is crucial when dealing with real estate. And, I firmly believe that you will find no other agent that will work as hard for you as Caroline. If you're looking for an agent, stop reading. Pick up the phone and give her a call or email her. I guarantee that you won't regret it.

Wow, Phillip, I need to buy some advertising airtime and put you on TV!! I appreciate the commercial! Thank you so much for this incredibly thorough review. I can't thank you enough for recognizing my efforts and for being such a great seller. I could not have done what I did without your being so responsive and responsible even when you were overseas. I'm so glad we got the house sold for you and that the buyers are so happy in their new house. I would partner up with you on any project any day!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Leland, NC.

My only negative in my comments pertain to myself....I wish I had taken care of this sooner.

My wife and I met with Ms. Dugas promptly at the time she'd agreed to -- her promptness was important as we had traveled from out of state to view the property.

I must say that throughout the entire process, from viewing the property, to purchasing the property, etc., Ms. Dugas went above and beyond in her efforts to help us. I would do business with her every time I am in need of a realtor and will recommend her to any and everyone looking for a new home, business, etc. Always pleasant, professional, with great attention to detail. She treated my wife and I as I would imagine she'd treat her own family/loved ones. Once the property had been purchased, she continues to offer assistance with whatever we may need, especially in view of the fact that we are not from the area. I wish all my dealings with representatives (any and all types of services) were as pleasant as my dealings with her.

What a blessing it was to meet you and your sweet family. I loved helping you with this house and wish you a lifetime of happiness there! You were great to work with. :)

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Leland, NC.

We have used Caroline to purchase two oceanfront investment properties over the past 7 years. She is a great listener to determine your needs. She is extremely thorough and prompt in all of her dealings. In our last purchase (May, 2015) we had a house with tremendous interest from third parties. She stayed up late into the night to draft a contract for us on short notice. Her attention to detail is amazing. She is one of the most responsive professionals we have ever dealt with, either answering her phone, or promptly returning all messages, usually within minutes. Her real estate advice about location, value for the money, rental possibilities has all been 100% spot on.

Bought a home in 2015 in Wilmington Beach, Carolina Beach, NC 28428.

After talking with three other agents there was no question about Caroline being the right realtor. She was recommended to us, and we have recommended her to everyone we have talked to. Caroline is always available - day & night including week-ends and was able to answer any question we came up with. Her suggestions and "staging" helped tremendously - our house was put on the market the Saturday before Christmas and sold in 42 days. We think she is just "THE BEST".

Response from Caroline Dugas on 06/01/2015
You were wonderful sellers who listened to advice and did the hard work necessary to get the house on the market. AND you heeded my pre-flight home inspection list, resulting in the buyers only asking for a tiny handful of repairs on an older house. GREAT TEAM WORK! I hope you enjoy building your new home. WWCB!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Hampstead, NC.

Caroline Dugas is a real estate agent without equal. At first we listed our investment property with the same agent who helped us purchase and managed it for over 10 years. He did fine as a purchase agent and property manager, but when it came to representing us as the listing agent, he did not get results. After 9 months it only had about 20 showings and we didn’t get a single offer. Worse, we didn’t understand why. The best thing we did was switch to Caroline Dugas at Seaside Living Realty Group. She came in with a plan and the experience, resources and connections to put it in action. The house needed some minor touch ups and staging to make it "pop." After 9 months in below average showing condition, the house had a bad reputation with all the local agents. Caroline helped us come up with a prioritized "to do" list to and lined up reasonably priced contractors to do the work we needed done. This was very helpful because we do live several states away. We took the house off the market while we tackled the renovations but within 30 days we had an open house that completely erased the house’s lack luster reputation. She furnished every room with her own staging furniture and had professional pictures taken and posted on all the real estate websites and social media. We had 29 showings in 3 winter months and got a beach house under contract in January! Wow! I can't say enough about Living Seaside Realty Group and I highly recommend Caroline Dugas and her team to represent sellers in the Wilmington NC area.

Amazing agent! She goes the extra mile to assure complete satisfaction. Always told it like it is and went above and beyond the call of duty no matter what.

Simply THE best when it comes to genuineness, thoroughness and friendliness (not to mention patience). Caroline allows her clients to feel as though we're her only costumer, when that's clearly not the case. Her service level is surpassed only by her knowledge of everything real estate and the desire to ultimately achieve 100% satisfaction. Caroline Dugas is simply the best!

Caroline recently helped me sell 2 homes. She is very hard working and a true professional. Her integrity and incredible work ethic made the whole process simple and very pleasant. She responds quickly to all calls and emails and really goes the extra mile to help with whatever you need. As an extra bonus she staged my homes beautifully which I really believe made for a quicker sale. I would highly recommend Caroline!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Leland, NC.

Caroline is a first class realtor. She is smart, hard-working, diligent, honest, fair and straightforward... not to mention a great person all the way around. We were introduced to Caroline by word of mouth. After meeting a handful of realtors before, Caroline was a breath of fresh air. Caroline treated us with the upmost respect, guided us with honesty and professional knowledge and ultimately helped us make some of the biggest decisions of our lives. Caroline represented us as buyers when we purchased our first home, 2 years later helped us to understand the rental market-- from a real estate professional's perspective; helped us purchase a 2nd home, and then finally represented us as we sold a home. So, Caroline helped us BUY, RENT AND SELL. We can honestly say that working with her with a true pleasure. Not only was she on her real estate "game", but she genuinely cared about our thoughts, feelings, and opinions and helped us, in the end, get the best deal possible. Caroline is the best out there. We would recommend her to anyone!!!

Thanks so much Marie! I love you guys. I feel like I have had a front row seat while watching your family grow and you were even nice enough to have a baby on my birthday so we could always celebrate together! I know we have one more sale to get through together in a couple more years and I'm looking forward to it. So glad to call you my client and my friend! And maybe someday you will retire up here instead of down there where everyone else goes! :)

She is honest and incredibly knowledgable. We learned so much from her. She will work insanely hard for you. She isn't in the business to make money, she is in it to make people happy. She is amazing. Everyone we spoke to regarding Caroline said the same thing... "She is one of the best" :)

We loved working with Caroline! She went above and beyond every day to keep us informed. Caroline staged my home to ensure the vision of the potential home buyer would come through. The only "problem" was we sold our house TOO FAST!!! What a great problem to have!!! Additionally, Caroline helped us shop and find the best area and neighborhood to build our next home and worked with us on those negotiations!!! I can't think of a time when Caroline did not return my phone call or text...great communications!!! She will go the extra mile to get it done!!!!

I could not have asked for anything more in an agent. My house was a difficult sale for many reasons.

She even helped me make some repairs to the house before putting it on the market. She is spectacular!!!

Caroline did an outstanding job in selling my mother's home. She convinced me to allow her to stage the then empty house, and the staging turned out great. She researched the pricing range and was spot on. The house went under contract within three weeks of listing and was sold for close to our original asking price.

She kept me fully informed during the process and provided me with solid advise during the negotiations. I certainly would recommend her to any one looking to buy or sell real estate in the Wilmington NC area.

Caroline just sold one of our properties for us and did a wonderful job. This was a difficult sell and closing due to different issues but she made it go smoothly and on time. Caroline and her assistant Myra even brought the documents to my doctors office to sign and notorize after breaking my ankle on the way to the attorneys office, just to insure the closing took place. She was in constant contact with us and kept us informed which means so much during a listing and closing. I had intervewed several agents with 4 different agencies before signing with Caroline Dugas. I have not regretted doing so for one minute.

Caroline came into my house and immediately knew what needed to be done to sell my house quickly. It was hard work and cost money, but necessary to get the house in shape for the sale. I appreciated Caroline's insight into the market. When other homes were not selling, we had a contract on our house in 6 weeks. The effort clearly paid off! I highly recommend Caroline and her team to those in need of a realtor.

Caroline was charged with selling our condo in Wrightsville Beach and was a total pro in getting the job done! Her knowledge of the neighborhood allowed us to be correctly and realistically priced for a fast sale. He ideas on marketing the property were on the money. He suggestions were based in reality not blue sky. This allowed us to make informed, realistic decisions. I was able to reach Caroline at any time, she went above the call in dealing with the repairman we needed, and was most helpful in making things happen locally as we were 125 miles away in Raleigh. I honestly cannot think of a single thing I would change about my experience in dealing with Caroline.

My husband and I began casually looking for property in different parts of the country that interested us. Without fail, every agent we contacted either didn't respond or sent us an email with multiple listings but never followed up. That is, until I contacted Caroline Dugas about one of her listings at Carolina Beach, NC! She spent more time asking about what we wanted than she did "selling" me on her listing that, in the end, wasn't ideal for us.

Caroline sent us a wide variety of properties to look at in our price range. We spent a few months emailing back and forth until I fell in love with one of the emailed listings. Impulsively, I wanted to make an offer without seeing it in person. Caroline highly recommended waiting until we made a visit. Imagine that, a realtor who who wanted us to wait to make an offer! After the twelve hour trip to NC, we spent the whole weekend with her learning about the area and the market. We did not feel rushed or pressured. AND she was right, the unit that I fell in love with in the email did not stack up. Caroline kept saying, "Making money is fine, but my real payoff is in helping my buyers find their dream home."

After our extensive "get to know the area" visit, we made a very informed offer that was quickly accepted. Through the entire process we felt well represented. Our concerns and questions were addressed promptly and completely.

After one year of being thrilled with our purchase, we realized that we wanted to shift from owning a vacation home to owning a permanent home in the same area. Caroline listed our first condo and, even in a buyers market, helped us sell for a very nice price. Then, she devoted more time to finding another dream home for us. We are now the proud owners of our ultimate dream home that was well within our budget.

After having used Caroline Dugas as both a buyers agent and a listing agent, we have recommended her to others who have been equally thrilled with her professionalism and warmth. She clearly loves being a realtor and it shows in her continued successful relationships with her clients and her colleagues.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Leland, NC.

Gary was extremely helpful in the sale of my townhouse. He went over & beyond to help us get it sold as we had 2 mortgage payments at the time. He was quick to reply when we had questions & consistently kept us informed when things were going on. We would highly recommend Gary if you are looking to sell your home!

Sold a home in 2015 in Midway, NC 28422.

Gary is comprehensive, caring, aggressive, knowledgeable, and compassionate. I have had the privilege to work closely with Gary prior to the sell of my home, for the quick sell of my home, while searching for a new home and for the duration of the building of our new home. I would undoubtedly recommend him to all seeking to sell, build, or purchase a home. He is one of the good guys!

Sold a home in 2015 in Kings Grant, Wilmington, NC 28405.

Working with Gary was truly the best experience we have ever had in our real estate history. Gary knew key information about the area to help us decide exactly what neighborhoods would work for us and was committed to finding us not just a new house, but our home. When we were having problems selling our home (out of state), Gary was there with great advice that got us under contract in 3 days!!! Gary treated us like family and was honestly invested in our happiness. To say we recommend him is an understatement. It would be any client's privilege to work with Gary Traflet!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Wilmington, NC.

Throughout the whole process of buying our home, Gary was more helpful than we could have asked. He was always available to work around our schedules and he was very good at explaining everything that was going on so we always knew where we stood with the process. Overall he helped take a ton of stress out our experience.

“It’s not what we say that matters, it’s what our clients say”

Gary was the best agent we have had in the 11 real estate transactions we have had with various agents. We will recommend Gary to everyone because he was the most thorough, detailed and hard-working agent we’ve had. He stays in constant communications, which in this market was a comfort to know what was going on. Gary is the most professional and shares the same values in living and working with integrity!

Gary is extremely knowledgeable with all parts of the buying process. He is honest and trustworthy and all these traits are clearly evident at first meeting. It was easy making a connection with him and trusting his opinions/feedback. Gary had great use of the internet and we appreciated his use of email contact. He went above and beyond offering/being available for help with relocation issues not expressly related to actually purchasing a home.

Caroline and Myra did a great job, couldn't be happier. Caroline worked with us 18 months ago on a deal that fell through. We ended up buying a FSBO which also cost her a potential sale since she had a buyer who had been wanting this same house. She kept smiling and working hard for our business. When the time came to sell this house, we called her to list it and it was under contract in less than a month. Very professional.

Tania had great knowledge of many different areas of the Wilmington region! I would recommend her to anyone! She was responsive and patient throughout the process (and) her knowledge of a unique buying situation with deadlines and a house being sold in (another state) was very much appreciated.

Zane E. Bloom, Jr. - Leland, NC

Everything was excellent. Caroline is a very knowledgeable professional. Interested as much in our needs and concerns as she was in selling a property. She worked day and night answering emails and texts into the wee hours. We hesitate to gush too much for fear of not being believed as to how perfect Caroline is as a Realtor. Thanks so much.

Caroline will work tirelessly on your behalf and leave no stone unturned to protect your interest. She is completely honest, trustworthy and will "tell it like it is" In our case she more than earned her commission."

Myra was energetic, enthusiastic and positive right from the start that she could help us find the right home. Quite simply, Myra worked to help us out like we were family – she did a wonderful job!

I was more than a little nervous about selling my house in North Carolina long-distance, as I needed to move to my new house in Michigan immediately and couldn't be around during the process. Mary took care of it all, making the sale quick and easy. She put a lot of time into holding Open Houses and promoting my property for me. She kept me informed throughout--no easy task as I was without internet and my cell phone connection was a little spotty this far north. She made sure the yardwork was taken care of, contacted a repair person for an unexpected issue and even subcontracted the repair work required by the purchaser--all with me being 1200 miles away. I would highly recommend her to anyone who was interested in selling their property.

My experience with Mary Bridges as my Realtor transcends all imaginable expectations I might have had. It is really rare to encounter someone like Mary in “any” industry. She brings serious dedication, perseverance, a positive attitude, strategic thinking, problem-solving, and even the occasional elbow grease...all in one, smiling package. She is resourceful, smart as a whip, funny, compassionate and steely just when you need her to be. I never had to wait long with a question or concern, she was always three steps ahead of me. I can't count how many times she told me she loves her job and that she learns something new every day. Her unique combination of professional excellence, optimism and customer service makes her especially easy to work with. Going forward she is hands-down, my agent of choice and I will recommend her to everyone I know.

Caroline was absolutely amazing, going far above our highest expectations. Over the years we've toyed with the idea of a vacation property. It's always started out by contacting a Realtor about their listing and it never goes much farther than that. This time was different. I contacted Caroline and she was enthusiastic and eager to educate me on the local market and our opportunities. Her goal was always to make our dream come true, and often had to remind us that we should not compromise that. In the end we not only got our dream house, we hope we started a wonderful friendship. Thank you Caroline!
