Carl Cole IV


As someone who escaped during a time of war, I came to America as an immigrant to live The American Dream. Homeownership is very much a part of that American Dream and as your real estate agent, I will do my utmost to educate, protect and guide you through the home buying and/or selling process. Born in Saigon Vietnam, my mother escaped from communist forces during the fall of Saigon, with just a little kid (me) and a bag. I became a naturalized American citizen, learned English and was raised to be a proud American. After graduating, I worked offshore on an oil rig a few years before making the decision to join the Marine Corps, to serve a cause greater than myself.

After nearly 3 decades of honorable service to my country, which included 7 deployments, I retired in 2015 out of Cherry Point, NC. Our family loves Eastern North Carolina and we have chosen to remain in the area we love so much. Why not live where people pay to vacation? I am passionate about raising our 5 daughters and they are by far my greatest accomplishments in life.

In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my buddy Otis (our English Bulldog), smoking cigars at the local shops and spending time on the water with family and friends. Becoming a realtor was something I chose to do as a way to help facilitate others to achieve The American Dream. As a realtor, I focus of providing the best results and service in the industry. Listening carefully to understand your real estate goals, I will work hard to create solutions that best fit your needs. I have the expertise, proven track record and the resources to help you achieve your real estate dreams. I am grateful and humbled for the opportunity to introduce myself and look forward to getting to know more about you, as we work together to conquer your real estate needs.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you've done over the past four + months!  It's been sooo crazy in this wild market, but you have made an otherwise frustrating process smooth and even enjoyable! You were available at all kinds of hours that fit my schedule perfectly. You spent so much time and energy to find me the perfect house. You really made it all about me and what I was looking for, down to the smallest detail. This is my third home purchase, and it's been the smoothest. You are by far the most professional and skilled agent with whom I've worked! Take care & many thanks! Stephanie Gibbs | Buyer | Jacksonville, NC

My wife and I have just recently purchased our first house that we plan to raise our children in. Starting that journey felt like it would be both long and overwhelming. However, Carl's professionalism, enthusiasm, and commitment to satisfaction made what seemed like a major ordeal into a simple, stress-free process that ended with us in a beautiful house and starting that next chapter as proud home owners. Carl has been both accommodating and transparent during the entire time which gave my wife and I peace of mind. After this experience I will always, confidentially recommend Carl to anyone who is looking to buy a new home and start that new exciting chapter. Christopher Arnold | Buyer | Jacksonville, NC

Carl Cole was a great Realtor. He was always attentive, communicated well, stayed on top of tasks once a house was found and even fought for us to have certain things fixed in the house prior to finalizing it. He is personable and funny, but is also well versed in the Realtor world. I would recommend Carl to anyone who is looking to buy a home. I hope this helps you! Thank you for all your work with us and getting us through the process! Kristi Bolstick | Buyer | Jacksonville, NC

There are not enough words I can use to describe how amazing and helpful Carl has been throughout our home buying process. He went above and beyond by showing us homes months before we got our pre-approval. He believed in us and the goals we were focused on for our first home, and he was right there with us the whole way through. If we ever had any questions he was there to answer, when I needed to see little details of other homes to make up my mind for our design center appointment, he took me to see other homes for insight. Carl Cole is THAT guy! He is the best realtor I have ever met. I am so thankful to have ran into you while trying to help my future mother in law. Who would have known 2 years after that we would still be in touch and worked together on finding the perfect starter home for our family. Our next home in the future I will not make a move with you there to guide us again. Carl is exceedingly recommended as a realtor!!!! Please reach out to him and allow him to help you get into your next living space! I promise he will not disappoint. Kaliyah Wilson | Buyer | Maysville, NC
