I have been in real estate for nearly 20 years.  I started my career in Columbia, MD at Prudential, Re/Max Columbia and then Re/Max Advantage.  After a couple of years at Re/Max Advantage, my mother and I opened a small real estate company called Astor Properties which was located in Baltimore. 

I married my husband, Don Moran in 2002 and we have 1 son named Jack. In 2010, we moved to Carolina Beach, NC where we enjoy the beach life.  Since moving here and living on the water I have been able to enjoy such activities as boating, kayaking and dolphin watching.   In 2012, my husband decided to join me in the real estate business and we have formed The Moran Real Estate Team.

Moving to a new city has been very rewarding because I have gotten to meet a lot of new friends and learn about a new city and it's historical aspects.  We have enjoyed it so much here that we convinced my in-laws to move here in our neighborhood.

In 2012, my husband, Don decided to leave his job in marketing and join me in real estate.  We are The Moran Real Estate Team.  We love working together helping people buy and sell homes.

We appreciated Deanna Moran's diligence in trying circumstances during the weeks before closing in situations with the title attorney. She also contacted the selling agent when our closing was extended as a glitch occurred on their side. She asked that the seller pay the extra money charged for the extension. This was agreed upon. We definitely recommend Deanna when purchasing a new property as it is clear she takes care of her clients.

We worked with Deanna Moran the last two months. We were interested in purchasing either a Condo or Townhouse in Topsail Island. From the beginning Deanna was very diligent in getting back to us and provided us with listings she knew we would like in our price range. We never felt rushed. A delight to work with and went above and beyond what a normal agent does. I highly recommend her. She even met us on a rainy Saturday morning to open up a townhouse and did a walk through via Face time when we weren't able to come down from Raleigh.

Deanna was very good to work with and was very good about communicating needs and working with us in long distance communications. She also took the time to work with us in many visits to homes and was very helpful in answering questions via phone, text, or email. I would definitely work with Deanna again.

Worked with Deanna for 1 Year to find the house we wanted. It was the best experience ever! I would always recommend Deanna. Very professional & always handled the little bumps.
You rock Deanna! Thank-you??

Deanna was so helpful and patient with us. We had many concerns while trying to purchase our first ocean front condo. She took the time to reassure us with the process and answer our questions. She also gave us options for resources to contact. Deanna is very personable and will keep you updated. I was still able to easily keep in contact with her despite my odd work hours and living a few hours away from her office.

Friendly, proffessional, flexible to multiple changes I threw at her. Willing to work and take calls on weekends also. She worked with me from out of state for 2 years and never showed any frustration. I would always choose her next time for all my real estate needs.

Deanna has sold 4 properties for our family she knows how to price them for a market price that will bring a reasonably quick sale. Two of the properties were under contact in less than a week. She works hard and does the things that need to be done to get the property shown - open houses - newspaper ads - communication with other realtors. She knows how the competing properties compare. I highly recommend Deanna and the Moran Team.

06/21/2017 - jpjannetti

Deanna is a professional agent that knows her clients well and puts their needs first. Her communication and responsiveness make her extremely easy and comfortable to work with. I would highly recommend Deanna to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable and caring agent.

My wife and I had to quickly relocate from the Boston area to Wilmington, NC as our house sold in the first 24 hours.

We did some research on local agents in Wilmington, NC and found the Moran Real Estate Team. Our first impression after our initial interview was awesome. We could tell that they are in the business to help people, and help us is exactly what they did! By the end of our 1st conversation they made us feel like they new exactly what our needs were for our new home.

After several "face time" appointments via iPhone they found us about 25 homes that we had to come down and see in person. We flew down and started the process. It turns out that we looked at all of the homes they had lined up but we honestly purchased the very first home they showed us! Talk about amazing! It checked all of the boxes! It goes to show that they care and listen to what you are looking for.

We are now here and absolutely love our new home thanks to the Moran Team. They are great people, they don't push, and have their own family just like all of us. They are a great team and I would highly encourage giving them a call if you need an agent to represent you on a purchase OR a sale!

Thank you again for your kindness, understanding, and knowledge of the local market. Should I ever need an agent, they will be the very first call I make.

Deanna was very helpful and patient in helping us to find the right condo that we wanted on the beach. She showed us at least 20 to 25 properties. We never felt pressured and always felt that she was looking out for our interest. She helped us in the negotiation and we were able to purchase the property at the price point that we wanted. I would highly recommend her.

It was a pleasure to work with Deanna. Buying a home sight unseen is a challenge to say the least but Deanna was very accommodating to our questions and made our process as smooth and efficient as it could possibly be. In addition, she was very detail oriented, customer service oriented, and was accessible when we needed her. Deanna Moran has my highest recommendation if you are in search of a Real Estate Professional. They don't get much better than her!!

We found Deanna by accident when we cold called about one of her listings in Carolina Beach. Quickly we learned she would be our agent for finding our beach house. She is no nonsense, respectful, responsive, knowledgable, and always willing to do what it takes to make a deal come together. I'm sure we will lean on her in the future for any real estate transaction we'd need. She was great to work with and made the most of our buying experience.

Deanna helped me sell a condo in Wilmington and at the same time buy a house in Carolina Beach. There was a problem with the original deed in the condo I sold. Deanna worked tirelessly with various lawyers and realtors to remedy the problems. I couldn't have done it myself. She made a difficult situation bearable. I would highly recommend Deanna.


Deanna Moran was a delight to work with. She kept looking till we found the perfect place and even let us see it multiple times until we decided for sure to offer. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the procedures necessary to get to closing and worked side by side every step of the way. We would do it again in a heart beat!

05/04/2016 - leilaabbey

Deanna was awesome! We were from out of state. Deanna sent us listings to look at so she would know exactly what we were looking for. We found a house and moved in about a month later. It was a whirlwind but Deanna made our house hunting fun!

This agent is stellar. Her expertise and helpfulness was unsurpassed this morning when I bought this property. This is the third home I've bought and have never been so impressed. My recommendation for her is unqualified.

01/24/2015 - alexapblair

She was friendly, thorough and responsive. I only had a small window of time to look for a home as I was visiting the area so it was important that she only show me homes which I could afford and which met the criteria we discussed. All of the homes were true possibilities and I found the perfect place. I will use her again when I am ready to downsize.

Deanna was sweet, sincere, honest, kind, helpful, and patient as we went through the process of buying our new home. She was always there to help us when we had questions and always had a smile on her face. We are so indebted to Deanna for her help and her complete accessibility when it came to making such a life-changing decision. Thank you Deanna!

Deanna was a pleasure to work with. She knew every detail of the home buying process which was great for us as first timers. She showed us well over 20 homes without so much as a complaint. There was never a time where we felt like we weren't a top priority for her. Her sense of humor made the sometimes difficult process of buying a house bearable. She promised us at the beginning that she would find us the perfect house and she did! I would absolutely work with Deanna again and recommend that anyone looking to buy or sell a house give her a call, you won't be disappointed.

Deanna was terrific to work with, knows the island well, did a great job on brochures and keeping them plentiful, and I could always count on a quick response from her. Even after I eected to take my home off the market for personal reasons, she continued to be helpful in so many ways. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home in the area.

05/16/2014 - pamynell

Deanna has helped me and two of my adult children purchase homes in the Wilmington and Carolina Beach area. She is tireless, knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend her to everyone who is looking for a home.

Working with Deanna and Don Moran was a pleasant experience. They were open and honest with their comments and suggestions to making my home market ready. They supplied excellent materials for me to review on the entire process. My house sold in three months. It was as stress-free as they could make it. Deanna and Don are wonderful people and their integrity is above and beyond.

05/16/2014 - user6603832

Amazing to work with, knowledgable and always accessible! Deanna made our first home buying experience a pleasant one. We had many questions and she always had the answers. We will not work with anyone else in Wilmington!
