Hurricane Florence Update!

We hope this message finds you safe and well. We were blessed to have not received any major damage during Hurricane Florence. Currently flooded, impassable roads are the largest issue for Southern Brunswick County. Tropical winds along with record breaking rainfall brought significant tree damage to the mainland. It appears that for the most part the homes on the Brunswick beaches and in the communities of SeaScape, Ocean Ridge and Seawatch have escaped structural damage, while some have lost a few shingles or pieces of siding or trim. Power has been restored to many areas.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those around SE North Carolina who received and are still dealing with the effects of this strong storm. We’d also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the first responders, linemen & community volunteers that have been working diligently for days to assist so many in our area.

Experience, Reputation Trump Mark Saunders Lawsuit

mark saunders lawsuitThe Coastal Companies is the umbrella company for a number of successful real estate and other businesses managed by Mark Saunders, whose settled lawsuit has no bearing on the continued commitment to provide excellent real estate and other services to its customers and property owners in southeastern North Carolina.

The Mark Saunders lawsuit was simply an issue at Ocean Ridge Plantation – an award-winning Mark Saunders’ community in Sunset Beach, NC – that led to the Ocean Ridge development company being billed for property assessments fees that it should not have been billed for. Prior to the Mark Saunders filed lawsuit, there was a transition involving the property owner’s association and the association made some mistakes with assessment fees. The Mark Saunders lawsuit has already been amicably settled.

With championship-level golf courses and world-class amenities, communities developed by Mark Saunders such as Ocean Ridge Plantation are highly regarded and considered to be some of the best places to live along the coastal corridor between North and South Carolina.

A short drive from Sunset Beach, one of the best beaches in world, Ocean Ridge Plantation offers an amazing coastal lifestyle and features and oceanfront beach club and four award-winning Big Cats golf courses. Ocean Ridge is one of the many fine communities developed by a Coastal Companies’ affiliated company, which now serve more than 4,000 property owners in the southeastern region of North Carolina.

Offering outstanding real estate and first class-customer service since 1985, The Coastal Companies has grown into one of the most successful and impactful businesses in south eastern North Carolina.
