Meet Cirila Cothran. Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in cirila-minWaldorf, MD, Cirila graduated from Salisbury State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. She relocated to the Raleigh-Durham area in 1997 and began working in the pharmaceutical industry. While living in The Triangle, she visited the Crystal Coast often and eventually purchased a second home in Morehead City. She loved this area so much; she decided to move here full time. She always had an interest in real estate and enjoys working with people, so becoming a Broker was a natural choice.

After moving, she spent 6 years listing, selling and managing a local Real Estate Franchise. During this time she was consistently the top listing and producing Broker, winning 4 International Production Awards. With that experience, she ventured out and opened her own firm. She continues to list & sell full time with a focus on new construction, military relocations and second home sales.

When she’s not working, you can usually find her running, boating, fishing…or enjoying the great Crystal Coast weather during some other kind of outdoor activity. email: cirila@cirilacothran.com

Clay Broker AssociateHaving pride in where you’re from is just the beginning of being a North Carolina native. There are so many great places to live in North Carolina, but I am very fortunate to call the Crystal Coast home.

Originally born in Winston-Salem, I moved to Morehead City at young age and quickly came to appreciate coastal living and began to experience all that this area has to offer. I immediately developed a love of surfing and fishing, which continue to be two of my favorite activities now.

Later, I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where I received a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Operations Management. After graduating, I took a position in South Carolina as a Parts Manager for a Ford Dealership. While this was a great opportunity, I eventually accepted a position at Carteret Health Care in the Materials Management Department, which brought me back home.

My love of this area, passion for providing excellent customer service and my attention to detail made becoming a Real Estate Broker an easy decision. Everyone loves the beach, but not everyone gets to live there. Now I am able to help people fulfill their dream of making the Crystal Coast home. Email: clay@cirilacothran.com
