Meet Wilmington NC REALTOR®

Karen Berry

My real estate career began in 1995 while spending the summer in Nags Head, NC. That little college “get away” was life changing. I was introduced to my career, as well as my husband, Shane Berry. Not long into those winter months, we realized, although beautiful, the area was much too quiet for us. With that, we packed up and moved back to his alma mater town. I’ve been an active Wilmington area broker since.

My alma mater town is Raleigh, NC. I graduated from Peace College with an AA in accounting and NCSU with an BS in education, which too would play a role in my real estate career. Immediately upon eligibility in 1997, I applied and received my NCREC approval to teach Real Estate Classes. In addition to real estate sales, teaching is a large aspect of my real estate career. I enjoy not only representing my clients and working transactions with area agents, but also being in the classroom with them.

For those deciding on NC beaches, I would love to share with you my experiences and show you why Wilmington is the place we call home. Those who know the secret, I hope to help you find your best investment.

My goal with each client is for them to reach their real estate goals with ease and enjoyment. Your happiness and success is the making of mine. I look forward to working with you. Feel free to call, email or text me anytime!

I have lived in many places in North Carolina, especially up and down our beautiful coastline. My personal life primarily consists of two children and church. We have a high school daughter and an elementary age son. Outside of work, they definitely keep us active. Although mostly on a softball or baseball field, we do find time for some fishing, beaching, basketball or just genuinely enjoying spending time together.

We are members of Myrtle Grove Baptist Church and have spent many hours volunteering there, with area schools promoting FCA, Booster Club, sports team awareness both rec and travel and things of the sort.

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up...1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV
