Biography My wife, Louise, and I practice real estate on Hatteras Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Originally from the Baltimore-Washington area, we moved to Hatteras Island in the spring of 1991. We are licensed real estate brokers who consistently produce multi-million dollar sales results, and we are recognized as one of the most innovative marketing teams on the island. Throughout the years, we have striven to set the standard for the practice of real estate. We are the authors of Your Personal Guide To Hatteras Island Real Estate, the first book devoted exclusively to the Hatteras Island real estate market. In addition, we have written a monthly real estate article for the Hatteras Monitor magazine since the early 1990s, began writing articles for the Island Breeze newspaper in August 2005, and now write for the online newspaper, the Island Free Press ( To serve our clients in the best possible manner, we have made professional education one of our core business values. We are Charter Members of the Worldwide Recreation & Resort Sales Council and the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. We have successfully completed the Recreation and Resort Specialist (RRS) training course; the Luxury Home Marketing course; we are Graduates of the Realtor Institute (GRI); and, we are graduates of the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) program, a professional designation held by slightly more than 3% of REALTORS® nationwide, reflecting a commitment to provide the highest quality of specialized services in the field of buyer representation. As the real estate market changed, and foreclosures and short sales became more common, Tom earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert designation. Technology is playing an increasingly important role in real estate marketing. We have been designated Allen F. Hainge CyberStars™, an elite group of real estate professionals with demonstrated outstanding ability in production, using today’s technology in their marketing efforts, and a willingness to share their discoveries and ideas with others.
