Brian FitzSimons, Realtor

Brian F.                           

Real Estate has always been a fascination for me and the opportunity to serve as a Real Estate Broker in Edenton is one of my dreams come true. I love solving problems, and I love Real Estate, so whether I am helping you sell your existing home or find your next one, you can be sure that you will have the benefit of my life’s experience working for you. Not only that, but you will also have ‘The luck of the Irish’ working for you. Sometimes that little touch of magic will make all the difference. My name is Brian FitzSimons and I was born in Ireland, educated there and graduated from Queen’s University Belfast as a Mechanical Engineer. I joined the British branch of the Trane Company and spent the majority of my life involved in the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning business on both the supply and contracting side in England, Canada and Mexico. My various locations involved me in the purchase and sale of over 15 houses, so I have become quite familiar with the Real Estate business as a consumer and have developed strong opinions about what I want from a Real Estate agent. This experience will assure you that you will get good service from me. During our sojourn in Mexico I was the Engineer/Architect for the construction of a 450 room hotel and a small condo project on the side. I also worked for ReMax for a period during the marketing of our condos. Moving North to San Diego, I was involved as a design Engineer with a company making compressed air rockets, used as a rescue line throwing device. It was during one vacation that my wife and I decided to explore the East Coast and subsequently discovered Edenton. When circumstances occurred to leave us free to choose where to live, we decided to move to Edenton and here we are.

Selecting the right Realtor for you is the first step in your real estate experience. Integrity, client dedication, knowledge of the current market and of the community and its surrounding area, and experience are several important qualities you should be on the lookout for. I have been a resident of Edenton for over 30 years, raising a family, working in retail as well as real estate, and staying actively involved in the community. Serving on various boards such as Edenton-Chowan Chamber of Commerce, Edenton Planning Board, Chowan Hospital Foundation, Chowan Arts Council, Military Affairs, and others has kept me informed of changes and issues in areas from local government to medical, education, the Arts, recreation. Holding management positions such as (but not limited to), Sole Proprietorship, Broker In Charge, and Director of Marketing and Sales has highlighted my career. And as a Real Estate Broker, I have been involved in residential and commercial sales, land acquisition and development, and marketing and sales of retirement communities/CCRCs. With a degree from NC State University/Raleigh in Psychology/Human Resources Development and the natural ability to communicate with people of all ages and walks of life, I enjoy working with my clients and helping them find the property that best suits their needs.




Gail Baker, Realtor

Realtor at CarolinaEast Real Estate

For most of us buying or selling a home is the most significant transaction we will make in our lifetime. Buying and or selling a house requires not only a financial commitment but can also be a very emotional process as well.  One of the primary responsibilities of a Realtor is to be an advocate for their client. This means having your best interest at heart in everything you do for and with that client.  It’s a simple philosophy but one in which my client is first above everything else.  I’ve lived full-time in our area and on the Albemarle Sound for the last six years; my family has owned a home in northeastern North Carolina all my life. I loved this place as I was growing up and since moving here, I’ve fallen in love all over again.  This area of northeastern NC is an undiscovered treasure.  Whether you’re from this area and are buying or selling or brand new to the Inner Banks, I would love the opportunity to show you why this is such a great place to live.
