Kathryn grew up one of six children working in her parents’ “Mom & Pop” grocery store in a small town in south western Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh. After graduating from IUP (Indiana University of Pennsylvania) she worked for the airlines and lived all over the country (Kansas City, Dallas, Houston, Denver, Salt Lake City, Montclair NJ, and Raleigh). She remains a Steeler fan even after all those moves.In Houston she also owned a desktop publishing business for eight years. She loves learning and has taught herself website creation and has built many websites to date. Learning all the latest tools and technology tips keeps her quite busy when real estate doesn’t. She even finds time now and again to teach computer classes at the Emerald Isle town hall. For play time she and her husband Henry enjoy scuba diving and sailing. At home she enjoys walking the beach with her dog.

She found her way to Cary, NC in the late 90s where she got her real estate agent’s license and then broker’s license. After working as a member of the Kelly Cobb Home Team (Fonville Morisey) she decided it was time to realize her dream of living at the beach and moved to Emerald Isle.

“Growing up as one of six kids in the family business I learned many things about relationships and people. Most importantly I learned to listen to what people ask for and to gear my services to meet those needs as efficiently, as effectively and as honestly as I can.

      Hello, my name is Brandie Morton and I was born and raised in Swansboro, NC.  I graduated from Swansboro High School and spent my summer days on the Crystal Coast beaches.

I started working as a Real Estate Assistant in 2005, where I had the opportunity to learn many aspects of the real estate field, including property management, sales, real estate development and new construction.

I married my husband in 2007 and moved to beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, where I attended Springfield College.  I earned my Bachelors in Human Services in 2010.  Although Charleston does have some allure for a lot of people, I was missing Eastern North Carolina and knew that is where I belonged and where I wanted to raise my family.  After having my daughter, my family and I packed up and headed back home.

Once back home, I started working as a Real Estate Assistant once again before finally deciding to take the plunge and get my Real Estate License.

I have been blessed to work and live in what I consider one of the most beautiful places.  I am “Native By Luck, and Local By Choice!” I was lucky enough to be born in this area and I choose to make it my forever home!  Please contact me and let me show you what the Crystal Coast has to offer you as a homeowner.
