I am a Top Selling Agent and a Licensed International Real Estate Advisor in coastal North Carolina.  In 2019, I was awarded by the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals as one of the 10 Best Real Estate agents in NC for clients’ satisfaction.

My "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it enables me to continually improve upon my skills and methods of doing business.  In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, but more quickly and efficiently.  They've also helped me to extend the range of services which I provide to my clients. 

I am not just selling in the luxury market, but I am also selling a luxury experience and a higher level of client satisfaction.  One sale for a quick buck isn’t as important as creating a luxury brand perception.  My clients care about ethics when they choose a real estate agent.  They value my honesty, hard work, loyalty, persistence, and my impeccable communication and negotiation skills.  I provide all-inclusive service to all of my clients.

I am extremely knowledgeable about the real estate industry which is evidenced by having surpassed the necessary training and certifications required of a Real Estate Agent.  I am a certified Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist, a Certified International Property Specialist, an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist, as well as a member of The International Multiple Listing Service.  I am always trying to bring to the table the best of both worlds – America and Europe.  I am well versed and familiar with different cultures and backgrounds.  I enjoy a challenge!  The best recognition for me is to know that I have succeeded.

Energetic and caring, I believe that through a clear understanding of my clients' needs and goals, the perfect opportunity can be found.  Effective client care means focusing my entire business around learning and meeting my clients’ needs.

My background consists of extensive sales experience as well as banking.

My representation of Sellers and Buyers spans a wide range of domestic, as well as international clientele; such as investors, attorneys, doctors, military families, and first-time home buyers.

Most importantly, my business is almost exclusively generated from past clients and referrals which stands as a true testament to my outstanding service.  My reputation and good name are important to me. 

I was born and raised in the Czech Republic and have lived in many countries all over Europe.  I studied the Russian, German, and French languages, as well as the fundamentals of Latin.  I never thought the English language was going to be in my future until I met my Marine husband while vacationing in Japan.  We have been happily married for over sixteen years and we have three children whose ages are 7, 11 and 13.  In 2016, I became a legally naturalized American citizen!  I worked hard to acclimate myself to the American lifestyle and culture, and have learned the English language on my own without any formal education.

I am a firm believer in giving back.  I donate to various charities every year.

In my free time, I love to garden which is a passion that I acquired from my grandmother.  I enjoy traveling, doing fun activities with my children, spending time with my husband and our overly loveable yellow labs and two grumpy cats.  It is a lot of fun to watch your hard work grow and bloom throughout the year!  Much like Real Estate!

We have been working with Irena for quite some time now. She sold us our first house here in N.C., we are now selling that home with her and have purchased our dream beach home as well. Irena is very professional and thorough. She gets the job done and takes into consideration all of your needs and expectations. We have recommended her to many military families moving to the area. Highly recommend.

We had a great experience working with Irena! She is very knowledgeable and quick to point out factors we were not necessarily considering but that are important when buying a house. She made the buying process so much easier, especially considering we were buying from out of town.
Always easy to reach and very committed to her clients. Definetely would recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a house

I was completely blown away by the level of efficiency and professionalism shown by Irena. She went way above and beyond a \u201Crealtor\u201D and made the selling of our house quick and easy. Irena gave us excellent advice on what we should update/change to maximize selling price. She is through and really knows the market and area. Definitely the best agent in the area.
