About Shorewood Real Estate

Shorewood Real Estate Office

Shorewood Real Estate, the expert in Emerald Isle beach vacations and real estate began in 1987 and remains a family owned and operated business.

Today we offer vacation rentals, sales, and property management providing the amenities of a larger company but with the individualized attention, only a smaller company can provide.

Vacation Rentals

Our vacation rentals include single-family homes, cottages, condos, and duplexes on the oceanfront to the sound and everything in between. Our guests come back year after year because we know the importance of stress-free vacation.

We make sure our vacation homes are clean, the kitchens stocked and every detail is thought of before you arrive.

Need suggestions on a restaurant or great activity for your family vacation? Ask us. Our expert team can help you plan your perfect Southern Outer Banks vacation.

For those looking to stay on the beautiful Crystal Coast for 2 weeks or more, we also offer Long Term Rentals.

Real Estate & Sales

The Sales division offers various types of brokerage services, from traditional transactions representing either the buyer or seller, to complex transactions such as Like-Kind Tax Deferral exchanges – Shorewood can do it all.

As members of the Multiple Listing Service our associates can list or sell properties anywhere in Carteret County including homes, homesites, cottages, condos, or businesses. Click to view our properties for sale or contact us for more information.

Property Management

The Property Management division began when our real estate clients began asking us to manage the properties we helped them purchase. We work with all our property management clients to identify objectives and goals and can customize our management to suit each client’s needs.

We are always available to discuss ways our clients can maximize their rental income and provide specific ideas while considering their circumstances and goals.

Our Property Management division includes Housekeeping, Maintenance, Reservations Accounting, and Construction/Renovations and more.

Our Story

Shorewood Staff

Shorewood Real Estate began in 1987 and opened our current office in 1996 when Shorewood’s Founder, Darlene Larson, joined forces with daughters, Danielle Register and Michelle Daffron, who continue to bring their unique talents to the management and daily operation of the business.

Darlene has been an active real estate agent in Carteret County since 1982. Both Danielle and Michelle grew up in Emerald Isle and also developed a passion for real estate.

Prior to starting Shorewood Darlene Larson was a teacher, a licensed estate and business planner.

Today Shorewood remains a family owned and operated business dedicated to helping your family find the perfect vacation rental, permanent home or investment property in Emerald Isle, Carteret County and the surrounding areas.
