I am a Top Selling Agent and a Licensed International Real Estate Advisor in coastal North Carolina. 

I was nominated by my clients and awarded by the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals for
the second time in a row as one of the 10 Best Real Estate agents in NC for clients’ satisfaction.

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 needed a realtor that had experience assisting clients that were not located where the property was being purchased. After looking at reviews online for Irena, we were confident that she would be the best person to handle our out-of-state (NJ to NC) new construction real estate transaction.

Irena was extremely knowledgeable about this type of process and served as our eyes and ears on many occasions when we could not travel to NC. She updated us monthly with pictures of our build and served as our advocate when situations arose with the builder. Irena proposed utilizing a private home inspector (even though it was for new construction) and that suggestion proved to be a valuable one. She served as our representative for our final walkthrough armed with an itemized list of all items that needed to be taken care of prior to close. She was always easily accessible via phone, text or email which was very important.

I would highly recommend Irena as she truly is a diligent and hard-working agent who proved to be very helpful throughout our ten-month long- distance process.

Irena was always prompt and available whenever we contacted her. She was a professional in everything she did. She made good recommendations for improvements and paid for the professional photos of the home. This resulted in a full price offer after the house had only been on the market for 10 hours. During the negotiation process she was fair and found a way to keep the deal moving despite some circumstantial roadblocks. I highly recommend her!

Irena is a true Real Estate professional! She is no nonsense, straight forward, and closes the deal every time! If you want your property sold she is the agent you want! I could not have asked for a better experience in selling our property!
