Guy B. Phillips III went to high school in Greensboro NC but grew up putting his toes in the sand every summer with his Southport and Holden Beach cousins. He made a career touring, recording, producing and writing music before relocating to the Brunswick County Beaches in 1988. He became a licensed Real Estate Agent in the mid 1990’s and has developed a strong client base as a buyer’s agent at the same time selling some of the most successful developments in southeast Brunswick County including single family homes and Golf Villa townhomes in South Harbour Village, residential lots in Barnes Bluffs and Charleston Ridge, and the Marina Village condos at the South Harbour Village waterfront.
Sharing the coastal lifestyle he loves, and finding the right property for your unique set of wants and needs are the focus for Guy. You can reach him at either of our Southport sales locations. We’re pleased to welcome him to the firm.

The patriotic spirit of America is alive and well in the City of Southport. For over 200 years this small maritime community has celebrated our nation's independence in a big way.

Incorporated as the N.C. 4th of July Festival in 1972 the festival committee strives to keep the focus of the festival on honoring our nation's birthday with a little fun thrown in.
