The Best in the Business

Onslow County has been my home for 23 years. Watching it grow has made me thankful to our military members who have instilled a sense of pride into our community. Serving those who serve us has been an honorable experience.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

Meet the Team

Christi Hill, Realtor/Broker

With over 230 homes sold in 2020, we pride ourselves in customer service! We are constantly educating ourselves on the market and what we have to do to better serve our clients. I come from a strong military family with a high level of integrity and an intense work ethic that I feel is reflected in my business daily. I am always looking for new clients to work for and prove our high level of excellence to them and to my team! I have a successful reputation listing homes in our area and work great with out-of-area Realtors in regards to referrals. I look forward to every sale. If you're unable to tour a home in person we offer Facetime and video home tours for your convenience. Don't forget to ask us about our listing presentation!

Julie Brennan, Operations

I am originally from Portsmouth, VA and I've had the opportunity to live in Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, and moved to Jacksonville, NC in 2021. Growing up in my hometown has given me a unique perspective that works well in Onslow County, as a daughter, sister, and wife of three military veterans. I have worked in a wide range of professions including property management, and the Federal Government. I've found that although other careers were interesting, my heart will always be with real estate. I enjoy helping others find their drive, passion, growth, and vision. 

Mills Towler, Agent

I relocated to Jacksonville in the early '90s due to my father being in the military.  I've bought and sold real estate over the years and fell in love with it.  I enjoy helping people find that happy home and look forward to serving Onslow County as a real estate agent that cares for their clients like family.

Haley Wagner, Agent

I was born and raised in Staunton, Virginia. I moved to Jacksonville, North Carolina in 2016. Growing up in the Shenandoah Valley, I definitely love the mountains. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from James Madison University. I’m passionate about helping people. I have two spoiled fur babies, a husky and a pug. I enjoy playing tennis and gardening in my free time, anything that involves being outside is enjoyable for me.

Adam Locklear, Agent 

I was born and raised right here in Onslow County. My family has a long history as Eastern North Carolina natives and from a young age, I hunted and explored the many hundreds of thousands of beautiful wilderness our county and surrounding areas have to offer. I desire to share those experiences with the next generation of Carolinians or anyone looking to resettle in our beautiful county.

Shawna Augherton, Agent 

Shawna Headshot

I am originally from West Virginia (which I still consider my home away from home), although I moved to Jacksonville, NC while in elementary school and have been here ever since. I graduated from Onslow County Schools then attended East Carolina University where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Middle Grades Education then proceeded to earn a Masters in School Counseling. I have spent the last 14 years serving as a high school counselor with a total of 18 years in education. My family is very active in the community with my husband being a native of the area and having 3 daughters and 1 granddaughter. Although I am a proud coal miner's daughter, growing up in a military town has given me a sincere appreciation of all the veteran and active-duty troops and families. I served as a real estate agent early in my career and I am excited about helping people once more as I restart my real estate profession.

Ivoree Patterson, Agent

I grew up with both parents being in the military, so my childhood consisted of traveling the world. Being the firstborn of three, I entered the world with responsibilities and high standards to live up to. Married to my husband who served 10 years in the Marine Corps, we now share six beautiful children ranging from 1 years old to 19 years of age, and a brand new granddaughter. I love spending time with them all and making memories, but most importantly, I love being an asset to the real estate world. Remembering that awesome feeling when we purchased our first home, I want everyone I encounter to have that same great feeling and experience.

Karen Ranahan, Marketing Director

I’m from Ocala, FL and I’ve lived in Jacksonville since 2011. I’ve enjoyed living in Onslow County and working in a wide range of professions including serving on active duty in the Marine Corps. After earning a Business Degree, I’ve found my niche working in Social Media Marketing. I enjoy time with family, friends and making those around me laugh.

Ashley Lamm, Accounts Manager

I am originally from Oregon, although due to my husbands' career in the Marine Corps we have been stationed in Jacksonville for the past 11 years. Within that time I've had the opportunity to work alongside mortgage and real estate professionals, doing what I enjoy which is bookkeeping. Though I have had many career opportunities the greatest of them all is being a mother of my twins Lincoln and Peyton.

MJ Pallada, Administrative Assistant

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Accounting Technology. I currently live in Davao City in the Philippines. I enjoy family time with my daughter, drawing, playing guitar, and dancing. I bring a unique skill set to the team and love what I do.
