Deanna L. Moran
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.



Donald P. Moran

As a kid growing up, my Dad was an engineer specializing in space systems early in the Space Race infancy. This meant that my family and I had to move a lot.  As different projects would open up across the country we were sure to jump in the car and launch ourselves out to a new home in new town with new friends and surroundings.  As a kid I thought it was really cool to have a new house every couple of years.  The best part was getting to go house shopping  with my Mom.  As many times as we had moved, Mom had become better than most of the professional Real Estate Agents.  What I learned from years from shopping with her was that most people are trying to find a "HOME" not  just the perfect house.  Schools, shopping, church, fishing, surfing, boating, community and a thousand other things all add up to the Perfect Home.
Deanna and I moved here to Wilmington from Baltimore Maryland in March of 2010.  
   I have been all over the United States through-out my life and have lived in some very nice places, but I have never been in a place that felt like home....Until I moved here to Carolina  Beach...Pleasure Island.  The people here are mostly transplants from all over the States looking for the good life at the beach...  We found it...
After falling in love with the Wilmington area while working at a local publishing house, I moved my parents here from Connecticut to fulfill al of our lifelong dreams of working and living at the beach.  Every day I become more amazed at how much Pleasure Island and the Wilmington area has to offer from boating, fishing, surfing, biking, beautiful silk-sand  beaches, parks, golf courses and really friendly people .   Being close to Downtown Wilmington and all that it has to offer is great.

After 25 years working in print and marketing, I’m very excited to partner up with my wife Deanna in real estate as Coldwell Banker Seacoast Advantage's Moran Real Estate Team
Deanna and I look forward to working with you and your family in finding your "Perfect Home".
