Anna Galowitch  Mobile: (910) 467-4755 

Hello, my name is Anna Galowitch. I am originally from Yonkers, New York. I have a Bachelors Degree in Political Science and a law degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School.

I have lived in Jacksonville for 4 years and absolutely love it. I found the energy of this town to be like no other. Jacksonville is a growing city with wonderful citizens surrounded by military families who thrive on their common goal of providing for their loved ones. I will do everything that I can to help families achieve this goal.

My legal education provides me with the additional legal knowledge that is always important in buying and selling a home. As a military spouse, I understand the need for families to quickly settle in their new environment. I am here to help you achieve your transition into finding that perfect home. I am known for my persistence, hard work, dedication, and the desire to always go out of my way to help people. I will do the same for you.

Malissa "Missy" Lorson - Mobile: (704) 361-0796

Malissa began her career in residential real estate in Maryland over 20 years ago.  As the market was changing, she too changed directions and worked as a loan officer before settling into a long career with a New Home Builder.  She has seen the market rise and rode the wave through the many ups and downs.  The one thing that remained certain is that people need a place to live.  No matter what is happening in the market, people still need a place to call home!

When Malissa is not working she spends her free time with her husband and grandchildren. They have one granddaughter and 2 grandsons. 

Malissa and her husband love being on the water, going to the beach, and traveling.  They love charter fishing when we travel.

We have six children that keep us very busy.

Malissa loves helping her clients realize their dreams of home ownership.  Whether they are a young family just starting out or looking to move up into their 2nd home or if they are looking to downsize.  The dream is the same.  The excitement is the same when they finally find the home that’s right for them.  It is an honor for Malissa to introduce her clients to their dream home!

Finding the home that meets your needs is important for your happiness and peace of mind.

From California to Maryland, Maryland back to California, California to New York, New York to California again, and California to North Carolina; I have my own personal experience with the headaches, heartaches and concerns that come with finding a home that compliments a family’s needs and wants.  Most of my relocations have been a result of Military Orders and family emergencies. It was through these moments that I learned the important role my home played in my life. Moving cross country and hitting the walls I ran into, motivated me to pursue this career.  

North Carolina has so much to offer! Be happy in your home.

If you’re not happy or just in need of a change, let’s talk. 😊
