Meet Amy Jones-Yerdon! She is a Wilmington native, and proud of it. And...she's the newest member of the Coastal Select Properties team! 


Growing up in Wilmington and attending public schools in New Hanover County. She says she has loved watching the home she adores grow into one of the most coveted places to live in the southeast. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington earning a bachelor’s degree in Communication and returning to graduate school earning a master’s degree in Elementary Education. There was no question when she graduated, she says, where she would end up. She was already home.
