"Working hard and playing hard is what life is all about..."

Tina Powers is the newest addition to the RE/MAX Southern Coast team. A licensed agent since 2001, she moved to Southport ten years ago.  While many area residents chose the Southport area as the perfect place for retirement or a second home, North Carolina native Tina believes it is also the perfect place to raise a family.  

Her decision to join RE/MAX Southern Coast came as a result of her decision to refocus on her career.  “With my sons both in college, I felt it was time for me to take a fresh new look at my options.  The business structure at RE/MAX Southern Coast appealed to me.

It is a very forward thinking management team who has moved away from antiquated sales and marketing methods. The most important thing to me when dealing with clients is to always provide an abundance of honesty and integrity and I wanted to work with people that share those values.  I don’t believe in applying a lot of pressure to close a deal.  It’s my clients’ decision, whether I’m working with a buyer or a seller.  I’m there to help them meet their objectives…which will then meet mine, too.”

Tina’s belief in the power of community involvement paid off for her sons.   “You have a lot of people pulling for your kids here.  As a family, we were very involved at St. Philip’s Episcopal in Southport and the public school system.  The schools want children to succeed and offer a lot of opportunities. My youngest son, Mason, is in college now at UNC-W and on the baseball team while my oldest son, Brett, graduated with a law degree from Wake Forest and is now pursuing his Masters in Public Administration. ”

So while many people would think about slowing down, Tina is all about the future. “There was never a dull moment at our house. Working hard and playing hard is what life is all about.  That will never change with me.”
