 Fred is the best! He was highly recommended to me by a friend who used him to purchase a condo in Sunset Beach last year. I’m SO happy I took her advice because I now own a beautiful new home in Carolina Shores!!! I came from New York and spent 2 days with Fred at the end of June to find my ideal list of “wants” was long. First Fred took me to see several places in the area as I had never been before. We went to Sunset Beach Farmer’s Market, Sunset Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, Chamber of Commerce, some local shops and eateries, etc. He knows everyone and everything about the area! After looking at a few homes, he brought me to Calabash Lakes. Bingo! He found my ideal home! If you’re looking to relocate, call Fred! He made the entire process easy, quick and enjoyable. Thanks to Fred, I’m living in a place I love and an area that feels like home already!  Paula

We can't thank you enough for making our move to Sunset Beach, NC so smooth. You found us the right spot with little hassle. Plus, you got me some emcee work with the best Beach Music band in the world. Of course we are singing your praises for your work and what you do for the community.

Hey Fred. Once again, thanks SOOOOOO much for your help! I called Fred last month at the reference of a family member.  I explained to him our situation, which was not a very pleasant one.

We needed information on a piece of land to possibly put on the market.  He warned me on the initial contact that it may not be good news.  He contacted me within 36 hours with the not so good news we were expecting.  However, he was very honest and forth coming with the information we requested.  

When I relayed the information to further parties in the situation, Fred's precise information truly helped move our situation and bring it to a close.  The facts he gave to support his conclusion were also relayed and very helpful, as he gave us a bigger picture of what was going on in the area.

We were truly thankful for his honesty, frankness, and willingness to help.  We really believe his professionalism and honesty resulted in a blessing for us.

I would undoubtedly call him again should the need arise.

Hey Fred,

We were pleasantly surprised and relieved at our reception at your office. Thank you for your hospitality and your willingness to help us plan for a potential move to North Carolina. Sunset Beach seems the likely place for us to be living. You mentioned rentals in the community in which you live and Nancy also mentioned "patio homes" where a pool was available in the community. We would both love to see some examples of, preferably one-story rentals.

We are a little apprehensive about selling our house. Also, we have moved before, but this move seems particularly daunting-perhaps because of all the stuff we have accumulated over time. My point, of course, is that we need to set up some priorities and I don't know where to begin. Can you help?

Again, we are both grateful for your help in our quest for a better life (sounds corny, but we really do need to get out of Florida!!!!)

Best Regards,

Tony and Bernie; Trinity, FL

My wife and recently completed a house hunting trip to the Sunset Beach, North Carolina area. We are looking forward to retirement and wanted to learn more about the area and find our future home. We were fortunate enough to find a REALTOR who is honest, hardworking and simply put a first class individual. We really enjoyed working with Fred Thorne. Fred was patient, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the area and the available properties. If you are in the market and this area interests you, we strongly recommend Fred and his team. He was a pleasure to work with.
