Originally from Somerville, NJ I moved to the piedmont area of North Carolina in 1980 with my parents. After working on a movie in Wilmington, NC I fell in love with the coast and knew I had to be here. I worked in the film industry for 10 years as an actor and crew member. I attribute my work ethics to an industry that inspires hard work, dedication and a drive to accomplish the impossible.
I moved to the Southport area in 2005 with my family. I dabbled in real estate investments for years before I decided to make it my career. I have worked with the full compliment of buyers and sellers ranging from first time homeowners to the savvy investors. My approach is simple. Listen to my client, know the market and find the best solution to accomplish their goals.
If you’re looking to locate to the area I applaud your decision. The area is filled with beautiful landscapes and neighbors that are friendly and welcoming. I would love to assist you in finding the perfect home. If you are leaving, I’m sorry to see you go and will do everything possible to help you sell your home for the best price. Put my experience to work for you and I’m sure you’ll be glad you did.
Pete Key was a phenomenal partner as we worked through the purchase of a new construction home in Oak Island. He helped us navigate some very complicated situations, negotiate terms and was there every step of the way. He also helped us get acclimated to the area with vendor recommendations, local introductions and even helping carry packages into the house after closing. Pete has become a friend and a go to source of knowledge for the island. If I could give him 6 stars, I would. Highly recommend!

After working with Hank Troscianiec and his team on finding and buying our home on a fascinating marsh with amazing access to everything Southport has to offer, it’s clear to us why this agency is the real estate leader every year in this beautiful coastal region. Hank introduced us to his associate, Matt Slaughter, as “Mr. Southport,” knowing that Matt would be an ideal fit as our buyers’ agent for our home pursuit. Indeed, Hank and Matt impressed us with their prodigious knowledge of the area, their understanding of our housing aspirations, and their wise counsel throughout the months-long search process that ultimately led Matt to point us to a home that “checked all the boxes” the moment it became available. The sellers accepted our offer the day after listing, and the closing was as smooth as a baby’s bottom -- a win-win all around, thanks to the teamwork of Hank, Matt, and the other heads-up people at Hank Troscianiec and Associates.

Stephie Grocott did a great job for us. We found a piece of land we loved just as we were leaving the state to go back home. Stephie managed the entire purchase for us and went above and beyond to make it happen for us. We could not be happier with our experience.
