Meet Darcel, a true beach enthusiast who fell in love with the charm of the Crystal Coast and decided to make it her home. Originally from Florida, she's lived in various beach destinations around the world, from Hawaii and Puerto Rico to Italy. However, the allure of Emerald Isle brought her back in the 90s, and in 2018, Darcel, along with her husband Mike, daughter Lauren, and their lovable yellow lab Sunny, decided to put down roots in the area.

As an East Carolina University alumna with a background in banking and accounting, Darcel is a true professional with an eye for detail and excellent communication skills. When she's not in the office, you'll often find her out on the water, enjoying boating adventures, or soaking up the sun at the beach with friends and family.

With my firsthand experience and understanding of the challenges that come with military life, I hold a Military Relocation Professional (MRP) certification, which equips me to assist military families with any real estate need they may have.
