Testimonials

Ellen was a wonderful realtor to work with. Refreshing approach to selling homes. She believes the home will sell itself. No fluff no stuff. She is honest and straight forward. We appreciated this about her. She made herself available to us from the start and never let up all the way through closing. She was informative about the area since we were moving from out of state and this was a big help. Our daughter recommended her because she had been her buyer's agent. I appreciated how she had helped my daughter with the purchase of her 1st home. So Ellen thank you on two counts!. Happy Home Owner for Ellen Hough
Our experience with Ellen Hough as our realtor was wonderful. Moving can be a stressful time especially if you are moving from another state. Ellen was very helpful and very knowledgeable about this area. She went above and beyond our expectations. She was always there for us if we had any questions or concerns and made us feel like we were her only clients! Ellen Hough did a outstanding job and I would recommend you to use her as your Realtor. Noi L. for Ellen Hough
Ellen is without a doubt the BEST agent we've ever had the pleasure of doing business with. Not only did she take us around to numerous (14+) houses in the Jacksonville, NC area, she was extremely honest. Ellen was straight forward with her opinions of the places she was showing and we were so happy to have someone so open and helpful. She stuck with us through six weeks of a battle to buy a "short sale" and then put up no fight when we backed out of the short sale and moved on to the home we did eventually buy. I look forward to all of our future business with Ellen and her wonderful team at EXIT Independence Realty. She's not only our buying agent but her company is also our property manager for our rental property. She's amazing. You'll love her...happy home buying! Nikki L. for Ellen Hough

Operation Christmas Child Kicks off in 2 Weeks!

You may have heard of Operation Christmas Child  where people fill shoe boxes with gifts and then the boxes are sent to children all over the world.

If you have had the opportunity to participate in this gift giving experience then you know what a great organization it is and that it has delivered over 94 million shoe boxes to 130 countries since 1993.

If you haven’t heard of Operation Christmas Child  yet, then you may be surprised to know that Samaritan’s Purse,  a Christian relief and evangelism organization, operates this project and collects shoe boxes filled with small items such as school supplies, toys, hair accessories, tooth brushes, and coloring books from gracious families throughout the globe.   The family brings the filled shoe box(es)  with a shipping donation of $7 per box to a drop off location  and then it gets shipped along with thousands of other boxes to needy children all over the world.

This year’s gift collection drive kicks off at several local drop off locations, on November 12th  and runs until November 19th  with a goal of  9 million shoe boxes this year totaling over 100 million since this project started in 1993. 

If you would like would like to contribute a shoe box, the drop off locations  in Onslow County are:

Fall is in the Air

Fall is in the air and the temperatures are starting to dip below the 80 degree mark.   That just means one thing, YARDWORK!    There is so much to be done in your yard during the fall, raking leaves is just the beginning.

Before the leaves start dropping you might want to walk around your yard and mark the low limbs so that you will know which ones to cut back after the leaves have fallen.

You need to clean up all the dead limbs and brush.  Now is the perfect time to trim back any of the branches that are hanging too low (like the one that smacks you in the head every time you mow your lawn) and prune your ornamental trees and bushes.

This is also a good time to power wash your house, and wash your windows and screens too.  And don’t forget to clean out your gutters!

Don’t forget that with all the bare trees and cut back flowerbeds, you will need to dress up your yard with other decorations; a fall wreath or flag, some mums and a few bales of hay and even your Halloween decorations can change your bare yard into the envy of the neighborhood!

If you live in a rental property, you will want to tidy up the yard too, and since you cannot make any permanent changes, you can invest in standing planter boxes and plant mums inside, and you can take them with you when you move too.

Albert J Ellis Airport Receives Improvement Grants

The state’s fastest growing commercial airport, the Albert J Ellis Airport, has received a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to construct a new terminal. The funding is provided by the Airport Improvement Program, which is funded by the Aviation and Airways Trust Fund and generates its revenue from user fees and airline ticket taxes. 

The grant for $13.5 million is one the largest grants ever received by Onslow County and is the fourth in a series for the construction of a new first class terminal building and related facilities. With over 56,000 square feet, the new facility will be two stories, with second level boarding with covered jet bridges. These improvements will also provide opportunities for expanded air service as well as new jobs, and new security equipment, which will enhance passenger flow and baggage handling capabilities.

There is also a grant for $450,000 from the N.C. Transportation Department which is part of a multiyear commitment to the development program.

The construction of this 18 month project is scheduled to begin in December.
