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.
