I am a proud military spouse, mother, and I am a legally naturalized American citizen!  I have three beautiful, smart, and quickly growing children.  We have a rambunctious Yellow Labrador Retriever named Quincy and his best friend Max, my oldest daughter's cat.  I was born and raised in the Czech Republic.  I studied the Russian, German, and French languages, as well as the fundamentals of Latin while attending high school and college.  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 married for over fourteen years.  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.

My reputation and good name are critical to me.  I am known for providing outstanding client service, 24/7 availability, high tech marketing techniques, personal touches, and as a skilled negotiator with my client's best interest at heart.  I firmly believe that it is not only my duty to represent my clients to the best of my ability, but to educate them throughout each step of the process while at the same time, arming them with top-notch information and marketing insight, whereby enabling my clients to make the best decisions possible.  I'm always honest with my clients, hardworking and extremely knowledgeable about the real estate industry which is evidenced by having surpassed the necessary training and certifications required of most Real Estate Advisors.  I am a certified Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist, and I am the only member of The International Multiple Listing Service in Coastal North Carolina, as well as the only Certified International Property Specialist in Coastal North Carolina.  I am always trying to bring to the table the best from 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.

I am a firm believer in giving back.  A donation is made through Coldwell Banker from each of my earned commissions.  

I love to garden; this is a passion which I learned from my 95 year old grandmother who still lives in the Czech Republic.  I enjoy traveling, doing fun activities with my children, spending time with my husband and our overly loveable puppy.  It is a lot of fun to watch your hard work grow and bloom throughout the year!  Much like Real Estate!

I am available 24-7 and respond to my clients’ needs.

06/02/2019 - Kurt Andy

Irena is very thorough, responsive and she is an excellent communicator. She always has your best interests in mind and she's very candid and not afraid to give you her opinion. Based on her experience and knowldege of the area/market we have used her on two different years, 2017 and 2019. We agreed to disagree a few times, but I believe that's a good thing. Irena is very flexible with her time and availability, which helped us, due to the fact we lived out-of town, 120 miles away. We like her approach and attention to detail, especially with all the negotiations and documents. We highly recommend Irena.

Irena was very professional and personal as she sold our home in a timely manner. I was always kept informed about all aspects of the sale, and I relied on her expertise again and again. I would highly recommend her for all your real estate needs.

Working with Irena on the sale of our house was truly a pleasure. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable, and made us feel extremely confident in her ability to sell our house. Her work ethic was outstanding and her communication with us was spot on! And when our home sustained damage during the hurricane, and had to temporarily be taken off the market for repairs, Irena was one of the first people to check on us, to offer assistance in getting us alternative housing and just express concern for our well-being. She is passionate about her job as a realtor while at the same time possessing the important trait of connecting to her clients personally. I would recommend her and have recommended her to everyone I know!
