Carly Forman- Owner, Broker
I have been a resident of Wilmington since 2001 and I’m very happy to call this beautiful coastal community my home. My experience thus far in real estate has been challenging and rewarding, I started my career in this business in 2005 working for a large franchised firm, then moved to a large local firm in 2007 where I spent the next 7 years.
In 2013, I opened the doors to my boutique real estate firm Coastal Green Properties. My vision when opening this firm was to keep it small and intimate, to really focus on client relations to provide the best service possible to both buyers and sellers.
I am originally from Lynchburg Virginia. I grew up surrounded by real estate, as both my parents have been involved in the business for many years. Coastal Green Properties also has subsidiary company – Coastal Green Construction established in 2009, which is ran by my husband Jason Forman and his partner Josh Swanson. Coastal Green Construction specializes in hotel & commercial renovation.

PRESS & TELEVISION
Recently, I appeared on "Coffee with Closers" along side the NC Association of Realtors President and 2 other guests from across the state during our lockdown quarantine in April of 2020. The four of us discussed the effects of the stay at home order and the effect it was having within our real estate market.
Links to watch the discussion panel-
I was featured on HGTV’s Beachfront-Bargain Hunt. This was a huge and exciting moment for my husband and I, as we looked for our potential beach house in Carolina Beach. The episode, “Agent turned Buyer in Carolina Beach”, was so much fun to shoot and HGTV was awesome to work with!
In addition, I was featured in Cape Fear Real Producers April 2019 issue. It was such an honor to be featured amongst the top real estate performers in our area. The publication is meant to highlight exceptional work in the real estate field, to be included was a pivotal moment in my career.
