Meet Frances Warner
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how Frances works.
That said, in her experience as an Ocean Isle Beach real estate professional, she has found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting her clients first. This means keeping herself accessible, being a good listener as well as communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
Frances has been selling real estate in Ocean Isle and in Brunswick County for 20 years. Frances has been the top producer in both volume and number of sales on OIB for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018. In 2019, Frances was the top producer on OIB in number of sales. She has been in the top 1% in the county, finishing either #2 or #3 for several years. In 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 she received the "Agent of the Year" award for Coldwell Banker Sea Coast (which includes 11 agencies). In 2018 she received the "Team of the Year" award for small teams.
This “client-first” philosophy has always been Frances' approach and it requires her to continually improve her skills and ways of doing business. In addition, she has found that the cutting-edge technology that is provided by Sea Coast to the ongoing education, has allowed her to stay one step ahead of the competition at all times.
"I believe in education and I am constantly taking classes to keep myself abreast of the market. I care about my clients and it is my personal mission to provide the very best service and to go that extra mile".
Frances admits that her success is largely attributed to her husband. "It is through my husband's love and support that gives me the drive that I have to succeed and to be the best that I can be".
Frances and Dick are a blended family with six children. Their passion is traveling and seeing the world.

Education: Frances grew up in Wilmington, NC and attended the public schools, graduating from New Hanover High in 1971. She is a graduate of Peace College in Raleigh and received her BA from North Carolina State University. She continued her studies at East Carolina University and received a masters degree. Frances is continuing her studies in EFM (Education for Ministry) through Sewanee, The University of the South.
I interviewed and tested a number of realtors to sell our small vacation home, and had no hesitation to select Frances. Her actual performance was stellar, above even the highest expectations. She has a suburb staff, an extensive database of potential buyers, a grasp of techniques for attracting buyers, is technically alert and always available.
On top of that, she is warm, funny and a joy to deal with. An outstanding experience!
Scott and Kathy Chapman
We recently listed and sold our townshouse with Kathy Trimble from the Sea Coast Caldwell Banker team. Kathy was always available for any questions or concerns that we had. We had a very quick sale that went very smoothly. We would recommend Kathy to help you with any real estate transactions.
Kathy Trimble listed and sold our property in Sunset Beach, NC. She was very knowledgeable and kept up us updated in the progress of selling. We had an issue come up with the property and Kathy offered to meet with a person who came to look at it and helped get the issue resolved without me driving five hours. If i ever am in the market for property in Brunswick County, Kathy is the person I will call.
