Joy Sibal loves a good laugh and greets everyone with a smile. She found herself looking for a new career opportunity after her employer closed its doors. Another door opened when she was offered the opportunity to enter real estate. Joy understood that buying and/or selling a home can be a stressful time but bringing her love of people, a strong desire to help and her sense of humor to the process resulted in the perfect combination! That was more than 25 years ago and she’s never doubted her decision.

Fast forward to today, Joy is Broker/Owner of ASAP Realty and enjoying every minute of it. One reason she still loves getting to work is that she is always learning – new clients, neighborhoods, trends in home design – and putting the knowledge to use. Helping people envision the future while appreciating the present is one of her special skills. Joy attributes her success to her hard work and many skills. When asked about the numerous awards she has earned in the real estate field, she is quick to respond “Certificates don’t sell houses, people do. I sell houses because people like the fact that I can represent them professionally, and get them exactly what they need, all while we both have fun doing it.”

Joy’s goal as a listing agent is to promote your property with honesty and integrity. As an agent for the buyer she works hard to match people and properties with one goal, complete satisfaction! “We are so fortunate to live and work in an area that has great golf courses, amazing beaches and beautiful, charming southern communities and developments’” says Joy. “Brunswick County, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC are two of the most temperate locales on the Eastern seaboard. Not too hot, definitely not too cold. The perfect year-round location for owning a vacation home, a permanent homestead or your retirement destination and, trust me, I can locate the perfect spot for my buyers and find great qualified buyers for my listings.”

Ryan Powers has been in the real estate business for almost a decade. He has been a multi-million dollar producer since his first year in the business. “I had a pretty idyllic childhood,” says Powers. “I was surrounded by so much love and support growing up.  That said, my parents passed on that never-say-die attitude to us kids…there was no quitting in the Powers family!  I carry that with me into adulthood along with the honesty and integrity they both live by.  Any success I’ve had I owe to them as they are pretty amazing people.”

Ryan strives to make everyone around him happy and successful too.  This shows best in how hard he works for his clients. Whether buying or selling with Ryan, past client testimonials deliver the message clearly, you will not find a more qualified, savvy, and hard working broker than Ryan Powers. Clients never feel pressured; yet they understand early on that they are using a very knowledgeable and highly competent individual.

Ryan grew up playing many competitive sports, but he played tournament golf from a fairly young age!  As he said, “living in ‘golfer’s paradise now has been a nice plus for an avid golfer so when I do get free time, I like to tee it up!”  He strives to never take himself too seriously in most aspects of life.  “I love helping people first and foremost.  That customer service is in my heart and I think that’s what has helped make me successful over the years.  I think people know when you truly care and aren’t just ‘selling them something’.

I also try to make sure we have some fun along the way too.  This can be a stressful time for many as they look for that perfect town/area to enjoy this next chapter of their lives.  Real estate is a serious business and at ASAP Realty, the other Owner/Brokers and I understand that for some, it will be one of the most important decisions they will ever make.  We don’t take that responsibility lightly and we assure our clients that we have their best interests in mind.  We have a team of 8 realtors now so it’s nice that we can bring all of our collective years of real estate experience to bear on every transaction.  When all is said and done, we love to see people smile and hope they enjoy the beach life just as much as we do.”

Originally from the suburbs of Connecticut, we had always vacationed on the shores of Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After graduating college, I moved to the Boston area, got married and raised a family and wanted a change of pace for our vacation destinations.

For 12 years, we had vacationed on the coastal shores of North Carolina. Its beauty reminded me of my days on the Cape and Islands, but had a more relaxed, low key vibe. My husband and I knew that someday, when the time was right, we wanted this to be our home. After a painstaking (almost) 2 years selling our home in the Boston area, in a very tough market, we sold our home and moved to the Ocean Isle Beach/Sunset Beach area. We were finally rid of the frigid winters and high taxes. It was during these years that I realized what it really took to both sell a house successfully, and be a buyer trying to narrow down just the right community for our family in this amazing area.

Ricky joined the ASAP Realty Team in 2015 and has been a great addition to the team!  He primarily sold out in the Oak Island/Southport area the last 15 years, but a move a few years ago down to Cherry Grove, SC has him selling real estate in Oak Island/Southport and all the other Brunswick County areas including Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, Calabash, Carolina Shores, and Sunset Beach! Ricky’s warm personality, unwavering ethics, and real estate expertise makes him a winning combination for your buying and selling needs for Coastal NC Real Estate!

Discovering a place to call home can be daunting but the journey is worth it!   Actually, it can be fun!  I had always wanted to move south and searched the Carolina coast for the best beach towns.  Upon reaching the beautiful coast of Brunswick County I knew that this was the treasure we had been looking for.  We enjoyed the trek and have called this community home for 5 years.  I would more than enjoy helping you on your search for you’re new home on this beautiful beach area.

As a customer service provider for more than 30 years, I can serve you well and put you first.  I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.  I will strive to make this search fun for you and help you to experience relaxing moments along the way.

Sell a Home
When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and monitor the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.

I invite you to Come and Coast Awhile.  Let’s schedule your tour today.

Rod Meadows

Rod grew up in North Dakota so if you want to tell cold weather stories he can do that with you. But Rod would prefer to talk to you about the benefits of moving away from that cold weather to the NC Brunswick Coast, which is exactly what he did years ago. When are you coming south?

The lifestyle of Southeastern North Carolina is special. A relaxed way of life is the norm, not the exception. The weather is wonderfully warm but you will still feel the change of seasons (just without all those snowdrifts). There is golfing everywhere and beautiful beaches that are moments away.

Rod is a sports enthusiast, baseball and hockey mostly, but pretty much any sport will do. He and his family also enjoy eating out, theatre and concerts, and there are many sports, dining, and entertainment options available close by when you live on the SE North Carolina coast. Rod can show you all the benefits of living in this area and help you find the home you are looking for, either for retirement, a second home, or relocation.

Rod looks forward to serving you soon. Call or email anytime!

Guess you can call me a “Jersey Girl” since I lived there my whole life prior to relocating to Brunswick County in 2003. Like many other residents who now reside here, the move was an easy decision. We have a better climate, much lower real estate taxes, the close proximity to beaches as well as many golf courses to enjoy in the surrounding area.

Although I began my real estate career in 2205, I have been involved in the sales field for over 40 years. I pride myself with great client service, putting your needs first and going the extra mile till the end results. Whether you are looking for your first home, vacation place, retirement home or an investment property, I am committed to providing you with the highest quality buyer service. When making the type of investment that buying a home requires, you deserve to receive the latest market information and the best advice an agent can provide. If you are looking to sell a house, I will provide you with the most recent comparables to price it right. Your information is kept confidential, and I also conduct my business with high integrity. My clients deserve the best service possible.

Contact me today and let me help you with buying or selling property in Brunswick County. Allow me to help make your transaction less stressful, knowing you have a knowledgeable and experienced realtor to work with.
