About ME

Who I AM


Dorothy Brady

Knowing how much my friends and family enjoy the OBX, I want to help others achieve their dream of owning their own beach home.  With my strong personal realty history, my wonderful sense of adventure, and my ability to foresee the goals and dreams of others, I can help you see the potential an OBX house has to become a treasured home for your family.

I fell in love with the beautiful beaches, the striking sunsets, the wild horses and relaxing atmosphere of the OBX.  Let me help you own a piece of this special place we call home.  

About ME

Growing up in Maryland, I started working for my family’s office supply business at a young age.   This instilled a strong work ethic at a young age, doing whatever was needed to get the job done.  

Me and my family were always drawn to the water.  We enjoyed vacations at various beaches and lakes, continuously returning to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  This became one of our favorite vacation spots, and we continued to enjoy escaping there with family and friends through the years.

Following college, I worked in the meeting, conference, and international trade show industries as well as having supported presidents of multiple corporations too.  In 1993, I married John, we welcomed 2 beautiful daughters, bought an auto body repair shop, and, all the while, continued visiting the OBX as it slowly became our home away from home.

Making treasured memories, soaking up some Vitamin Sea, and the laid back lifestyle of Corolla became an important part of our lives.  So much so that we eventually decided to purchase a vacation home.  Leaving after each visit became harder and harder, until we decided to move to the OBX full time.  One of our favorite things to do is drive my Jeep to Carova to relax on the beach and see the wild horses wandering around. 

MY Values

At Corolla Beach Realty, our focus is to help you reach your property goals with excellent customer service and guidance above measure. Our focus is on buying and selling real estate; we are not involved in the vacation property rental business.

The Outer Banks holds a special charm. With the many different styles of homes, neighborhoods and amenities, as well as the beautiful beaches, it is easy to see why this area holds such broad appeal.

MY Mission

To provide top notch service and assistance as you buy or sell your Outer Banks property. Providing good communication, follow up, and trust through the process are what I strive for.

Whether you’re looking for a second home for making beach memories, a relaxing home for retirement, or an investment/rental property – the Outer Banks has them all. I will be with you as you start looking for the best property to the time the keys are handed over at closing. I’ll be there from start to finish, assisting you through each phase of the process.

Perhaps you are looking to sell your property or home here? My services include home staging recommendations, competitive pricing strategies, multiple marketing methods, professional photographers, and more… all at no additional cost to you.
