I am a proud military spouse, mother, and I am a legally naturalized American citizen! I have three beautiful, smart, and quickly growing children. We have a rambunctious Yellow Labrador Retriever named Quincy and his best friend Max, my oldest daughter's cat. I was born and raised in the Czech Republic. I studied the Russian, German, and French languages, as well as the fundamentals of Latin while attending high school and college. I never thought the English language was going to be in my future until I met my Marine husband while vacationing in Japan. We have been married for over fourteen years. I worked hard to acclimate myself to the American lifestyle and culture, and have learned the English language on my own without any formal education.

I am a firm believer in giving back. A donation is made through Coldwell Banker from each of my earned commissions.
I love to garden; this is a passion which I learned from my 95 year old grandmother who still lives in the Czech Republic. I enjoy traveling, doing fun activities with my children, spending time with my husband and our overly loveable puppy. It is a lot of fun to watch your hard work grow and bloom throughout the year! Much like Real Estate!
I am available 24-7 and respond to my clients’ needs.
My motto is "IF IT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU – IT IS A MUST FOR ME".
Working with Irena on the sale of our house was truly a pleasure. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable, and made us feel extremely confident in her ability to sell our house. Her work ethic was outstanding and her communication with us was spot on! And when our home sustained damage during the hurricane, and had to temporarily be taken off the market for repairs, Irena was one of the first people to check on us, to offer assistance in getting us alternative housing and just express concern for our well-being. She is passionate about her job as a realtor while at the same time possessing the important trait of connecting to her clients personally. I would recommend her and have recommended her to everyone I know!
Irena was very helpful, courteous and professional. After having the house on the market for more than a year, she was able to put the house on the market and sell it within about a week! We could not have asked for a nicer, well-qualified realtor who paid attention to details and got the job done. We have been extremely pleased.

I could not be more impressed and satisfied with Irena's performance while selling my house. My house was located in Jacksonville NC. I placed my house for sale for over 20 months with three different agents and none on them delivered their promises to sell the house.
After I rented the house for a few months, I decided to sell again...this time with Irena. After I got the house ready, Florence hurricane damaged the house and I needed a lot of repairs. Irena went out of her way to help me out with contractors so I can have the house ready to sell. Without her help, there was no way I could get the house ready to sell within reasonable time. It was really a blessing to have Irena handle the sale. Within ONE week after the house went on the market, she sold it for the price we asked for !!
So, in short....if you are looking to sell your house with a very professional, responsive, and competent real estate agent...do not waste your time and go directly to Irena Kohler....Thanks a lot again Irena !!
