Denise began her career in insurance sales and office management, but spent over 25 years in the restaurant industry, working in several restaurants and a brewery with her husband. Her eclectic group of skills, ranging from accounting to graphic design, defied a single title at work. She is known for her adaptability, creativity, diplomacy, and tech savvy.

For over 20 years she traveled to OBX several times a year to get away from the hectic food service lifestyle. She and her family decided to embrace island life permanently in 2017.

The change of scenery inspired a career change, too, and shortly after relocating to Corolla,Denise began classes to become a real estate broker.

Now, with Corolla Beach Realty, she helps other families find their piece of paradise. Whether you are looking for a house for the occasional island retreat, investment or want to become a permanent member of the OBX community, she can help you find your perfect home.

Growing up in Maryland, Dorothy started working for her family’s office supply business at a young age.   This instilled a strong work ethic at a young age, doing whatever was needed to get the job completed.

Dorothy and her family were always drawn to the water.  They enjoyed vacations at various beaches and lakes, continuously returning to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  This became one of their favorite vacation spots, and they continued to enjoy escaping there with family and friends.

Following college, Dorothy worked in the meeting, conference, and international trade show industries as well as having supported presidents of multiple corporations too.  In 1993, she married John, had 2 beautiful daughters, bought an auto body repair shop, and, all the while, continued visiting the OBX as it slowly became their home away from home.

Making treasured memories, soaking up some Vitamin Sea, and the laid back lifestyle of Corolla became an important part of their lives.  So much so that they eventually decided to purchase a vacation home.  Leaving after each visit became harder and harder, until Dorothy and John decided to move to the OBX full time.

Knowing how much their friends and family enjoy the OBX, Dorothy wants to help others achieve their dream of owning their own beach home.  With her strong personal realty history, her wonderful sense of adventure, and her ability to foresee the goals and dreams of others, Dorothy can help you see the potential an OBX house has to become a treasured home for your family.

Sandy helped us from the beginning to the end of the process. She only sent us and had us see homes that were in our guidelines ( traditional floor plan and pricing ). She guided us thru the entire process ( offer, contract, inspection, lender, lawyer, closing, etc ) and did an excellent job based on her knowledge and experience and was always available. She also assisted us with the changeover of the utilities as well as the names of vendors for different jobs. She is a professional and personable agent and we consider her a very good friend.

R & D

Our experience with Sandy LaRue was superb from top to bottom. Sandy is extremely knowledgeable about the Corolla (and surrounding areas) market and she worked closely with us to understand our needs and priorities. Sandy showed us houses that closely matched our criteria and was there every step of the way through the offer and negotiation process. We ended up getting the perfect house for our family. Even after the deal was done Sandy continued to go above and beyond for us — offering help and advice with our move, utilities set up, etc. Sandy didn’t only become our trusted advisor through this home buying process; she also became our friend. We trust Sandy implicitly and highly recommend her to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home in OBX.

R & J

I cannot express in words how much Sandy helped me through the process of selling my home. I lived on the outer banks for years where I lived in my home. When I took a job in another state I needed to sell my home. The market dropped and I went from a man that should of made a nice profit on his home to being classified as a foreclosure. I used other Realtors® in the area and no one gave me the attention or service like Sandy. She personally walked me through the short-sale process, negotiated with my bank, spoke on my behalf, and saw the whole process through. She did not have to do all of these things. In fact most Realtors® would not have been willing to help me through that process. Sandy did and I am eternally grateful. Its not often you can find a Realtor® that sells premier property’s one day then is willing to help a man short-sale his home the next. I could not have done this without her help.
