My name is Jane Pittman, but I have been called “Jill” since the day I was born. I moved to North Carolina in 1978 when I attended the University of North Carolina and was captain of the women’s golf team. I have loved North Carolina ever since.In 2006, when I met my husband Mike, I asked where we should go on our summer vacation? He replied, Topsail Island of course, where else? Mike had been spending summers in Topsail since the age of four. I fell in love with the Island on our first visit and we were married on the beach in Surf City the summer of 2006. We were able to fulfill our dream by buying a home on the ICW in 2012 and are very blessed to call Topsail Island home.While I am new to the real estate industry, my professional background of 29 years in the health insurance industry will provide me a strong foundation to provide exceptional service. Whether buying or selling your home, I will provide the personal attention that will help make your buying or selling experience enjoyable.

Born and raised in MD, I attended high school and college there. I also graduated in the top 3% of my class in a union electrical school in Washington DC. I went to real estate school in MD as well where I received the honor of the highest score ever recorded on that school’s final exam at that time. I am an adamant student no matter what the subject, and my diligence reflects on the type of service that I’ve been providing to others for my entire professional career.

While attending college in MD, I decided to go to electrical school instead. Electrical school is a bit different than most as you must work a normal 40 hour week while earning your credit hours in order to graduate. Simply put, after working in five degrees all day, I went to class at night to make myself better. It worked. I started at the bottom in my industry and quickly became the guy running the job. I was a foreman in the electrical industry before I decided I still wasn’t done. Once again I worked all week in that same weather, then found myself in another classroom learning about real estate. Eventually I graduated and began my new career as an agent in MD. There I learned the ropes from one of the best agents in his market, before deciding to move to HI and start all over. I had an amazing experience there selling homes that I had previously only seen in dreams. I have a pattern of starting at the bottom and rising to the top. I attribute this fact to my desire to go above and beyond what is expected. Now I’m in another new place. I want to use that same philosophy to help the great people of NC in all of their real estate needs.

At home, I’m a pretty boring dude. I love God and serve Him first. I work hard to provide for my wife and children. 99% of my favorite activities are so because they are done with my family. The other one percent is definitely sneaking away for some live music, most of which my family would rather I Enjoy Myself. Since moving to HI, I have added a new sport to my list of passions. Surfing has definitely become a personal and family favorite. I also love lacrosse, baseball, football, and pretty much anything else I can watch or play. I played percussion for my home church band and hope to pick that back up soon in my new church.

Now that you know about me, I hope you see the agent you’ve been searching for. I strongly believe that my work experience, active lifestyle, attention to detail, and relentless approach to customer satisfaction will make me the right fit for the task. No matter if that task is selling your current home or finding your dream home, I will work to make sure you get everything you need and more to do so. I made a career out of working harder than everyone around me. Let me put that same philosophy to work for you.

Lisa began her real estate career selling and leasing commercial property in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. Rusty has spent his entire career building homes on the island and in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. After several years of managing our own rental properties, we realized we really enjoyed meeting all of the wonderful people from all over the United States who were coming and staying in our vacation homes. So, we relocated to Topsail Island and decided to formally open a vacation rental company. We saw their was a need for a customized-rental-approach and more personalized services. We work together with the Starfish Team work to ensure each tenant has a vacation to remember and each owner and each property receive the care, guidance and management necessary to ensure they have a strong rental season!
