As a second-generation realtor with a keen eye for envisioning the potential of homes, CC cuts through the noise of real estate. She was raised by a family of self-started small business owners who engrained a true passion for excellence and taught her the value of hard work. CC’s foundation in real estate began in high school when her single mother of two founded a brokerage business, enabling her to learn the ins and outs of the industry.

Upon graduating from The University of Georgia in 2012 with a degree in public relations, she and her husband, Jake, hopped from Atlanta to Austin then to West Texas. Once they welcomed their first child, they knew it was time to move back home to Georgia to settle down and plant roots permanently. Having grown up in a small South Georgia town, CC was particularly drawn to the Golden Isles because of the friendly people and the strong sense of community—making it a perfect place to raise a family.

It’s said that people do business with the people they like, and CC’s warm personality makes you feel like you’ve known her for years. Her marketing background, attention to detail and dedication to each client lay the foundation for her to sell each piece of real estate for the best price possible, as quickly as possible, and as smoothly as possible. The buying and selling process can be a daunting task for many, but you can rest assured that CC will work tirelessly on your behalf to provide a seamless transition from one dream home to the next.

In her free time, CC enjoys travelling, hot yoga, cooking, playing tennis, scuba diving and in-shore fishing. She’s a welcome committee member at Saint Simons Community Church, a member of 100 Women Who Care SSI, a Brunswick-Golden Isles Chamber of Commerce ambassador and is a participant of Leadership Glynn 2021.
