Who Are Jim and Judy - The Clary Team?

Jim When I was five years old, I began selling his brother's crayon drawings door to door for a nickel each.  Little did I know at the time that it was the beginning of a long career in sales and a highly successful real estate career in Brunswick County.

For over 30 years, I have been very active in the world of sales and marketing having worked for Federal Paper Board, Xerox, Ricoh, Image Office Systems and COECO corporations.  I have spent twelve of those years serving as the President and General Manager for two Raleigh-based office equipment companies prior to relocating to the Southport area.  I am very familiar with Southport and the surrounding areas, as I have lived in Wilmington, Raleigh and Southport for more than thirty years.  I am currently the Broker in Charge of our company, Clary Coastal Realty, and currently work with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage.

I am a graduate of Southeast Missouri State University and a United States Navy veteran (retired), having originally served as an officer on the Franklin D. Roosevelt aircraft carrier. 

My experience as a professional real estate broker and broker-in-charge of our personal LLC has afforded me the privilege of working with hundreds of wonderful people over the years, many of whom we now consider some of our dearest friends. 

I have deep roots in the community, serving as a church deacon, Sunday school teacher and usher.  I often tell people that, "We don't know if we will die 'in' Southport, but we plan to die as residents of Southport."

Judy -  Having a background in the world of sales/marketing, recruiting, public relations and banking, I have worked primarily in the computer software arena for over ten years as well as with a private financial institution for approximately eight years.  As a local entrepreneur, we currently own and operate the Brunswick Inn Bed and Breakfast ( in Southport -- a 216-year old historic mansion located on the Cape Fear River.  This has been a wonderful opportunity for us the past seventeen years to meet and introduce visitors to our area.  Many of these folks have returned to invest in property or to actually relocate here and enjoy this unique experience in living.

I have a strong commitment to community, whether it's as an active church member in Brunswick County or through contributions to the disadvantaged, including a mission trip to Moloka'i in Hawaii to work within the leper colony of Kalaupapa, as well as a two-year stint with Habitat for Humanity.  Backed by a degree and master's courses from the University of Hawaii, my work years in Raleigh and Salt Lake City and a hometown in upstate New York, I have the best of both a world view and small-town sensibility.

In addition to having a wonderful Golden Retriever, Roxie, Tinkerbell, a Chihuahua mix, and two four cats who live with us, we also have five children and eight grandchildren living throughout the United States.  And, they all love to return to the area and "step back in time" as they enjoy the quaintness and friendliness of Southport.

Now that you know a little more about us, we would like very much to work with you on your real estate needs.  Please feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss how we may best assist you in exploring together the best opportunites for you.
