Our Philosophy

Treat everyone you deal with as though they are “Family and Friends”.
Be the “Expert” in your area and always be available by phone or in person.
“Lasting Friendships” resulting from your work are more important than money.

Carole Legrain is a very knowledgeable, competent real estate agent who doesn’t waste any time getting things done. Her positive energy and “can do attitude” are a real plus and very much appreciated. Carole helped sell our house very quickly and was able to communicate our concerns and wishes effectively to the buyers and the other real estate agent. I felt that she was our advocate the whole time. Carole helped us when we bought our house ten years ago, and she was just as helpful selling the house now. I would recommend Carole if you are in need of an excellent real estate agent.


Seller’s review – 2020

I have known Carole Legrain since buying land in Porters Neck Plantation in 2006. As the only N.C. Real Estate Broker located within the gated community property, her realty company Porters Neck Real Estate LLC, serves as a Welcome Center for the entire community. She has successfully located tenants for my property over the past 6 years, and quickly generated multiple offers for the property when placed on the 2021 market for sale. She does it all, including managing subcontractors for property maintenance & improvements. Highly recommended, without reservation, for decades of local knowledge developed while serving the Porters Neck community.


Seller’s review – 2021

Carole is an extremely professional Real Estate agent. Her knowledge of Porters Neck Plantation and the Wilmington area overall is excellent. Besides being a pleasure to work with she was able to help us with vendor selection when we needed it and still does. We would happily work with her again.

I owned a house at Porters Neck since 2005 which I rent. Since I live out of state, I rely heavily on my rental broker not just to find good qualified renters, but also to help me find and coordinate vendors when I need work done at the house. I’ve been working with Carole for about the past 7 years. I find her to be friendly, responsive, competent and willing to go the extra mile. I have no hesitation in recommending Carole


Ms. Legrain has completed several real estate deals for me throughout the years. Carole has always been professional and fair for all parties involved which made negotiations and ultimate contract signings rather straight forward and timely. I would have no hesitation with referring her for any of your real estate needs here in the Wilmington, NC area!!


Carole helped our family of five find our first home! We were brand new to the home buying business and had no clue where to start, what to do ,or what questions to ask. Carol showed us every home we wanted to see and was very honest with us about the area, the price, and the budget. We met Carol when we were going through a very difficult time preparing our infant daughter for a very serious surgery. Not only did she work around our schedule, she genuinely cares about where we made our home and how our family was doing. She was never pushy. She was always prepared with all of the information about each home we looked at. Carole was very patient with us, showing us a few homes twice when we asked. Her knowledge about the school systems and neighborhoods was so helpful in our search. We ended up with a wonderful home that our family loves, at a great price. Carole cares about her clients well after the sale is complete. We have been in our home for almost a year and she continues to touch base with us to ask how everyone is doing. Thank you for everything Carole!


Carole is very professional and very knowledgeable.She does a great job on follow ups, which I feel is essential when listing your home. She is also very trustworthy. I strongly recommend Carole for your real estate needs.

My wife & I recently became “Empty Nesters” Our Home was simply to big for us. Being a US Army Veteran I applied for a Mortgage and was approved. However we did not want to sell our Home in Porters Neck. We asked Carole t find us a reliable Renter. Within a few weeks She found one, we signed a Lease Agreement with Carole’s much appreciated help on March 4, 2017. Carole handled all contractual details in a expedient and professional manner. my Wife and I recommend Carole highly.


Carole has been very helpful beginning in 2016 in leasing a single family home that I constructed and currently offer for lease in Porters Neck Plantation. Carole has located and has successfully interacted with a number of potential tenants that have a range of leasing options when seeking high end housing in Wilmington. Carole has located tenants for my property immediately after it was converted from a builder sales model to a single family rental property. Additionally, her office is located close by to quickly visit the home as needed


Carole is by far the hardest working agent that I have ever worked with. If you are looking for a top notch person for all of your real estate needs If you are buying selling renting or looking to rent a home Carole is the person to contact I can assure you that you will be very happy with her Carole sold me my home 9 years ago and also found me people to rent my home for the past 9 years.
