My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home enjoyable, efficient and rewarding for you. See what my clients have said about me as their St James Realtor. 

Our buyer’s agent Caryl Hudson worked tirelessly over a very long period to find us the resale that worked for our lifestyle. She previewed our home on our behalf prior to my coming down to see it for myself and wasted no time in closing the deal for us, after we made our offer. Couldn't have gone smoother. 
Thank you Caryl for your patience.

Steven & Rowena Lochner  Program Manager NYC Dept of Energy Management

Caryl Hudson did a great job for us. We were in town for a short visit and Caryl devoted more time than she had probably planned. Always very patient and not pushy.

Caryl Hudson sold our house two weeks!!

Pat Brick, St James Plantation

It is very stressful selling a house let alone your parents’ house when you live in another state. Caryl Hudson made it easy! She helped with everything! From the landscape, the inside of the house, to the estate sale! Thank you Swanson Reality and a big thank you to Caryl!

Donna Nuttal, Boston

“Caryl provides outstanding client service with a very high degree of professionalism.  She has gone far beyond what I expected from a realtor in assisting me with my search for available properties in the Wilmington and Southport NC areas.  It is to my very good fortune to be one of Caryl’s clients.”

Jerry Laporte, Indiana

“Caryl represented us well throughout the process of listing, showing, and advertising our home and she was always available to answer questions that led to the sale of our home.”

Connie & Doug   St James Plantation, NC 

​“Last year I decided to move to Southport from Durham, NC.  Before I decided to build a house, Caryl spent many hours driving me around looking at houses, duplexes and condos.  I valued her patience; she understood what a big decision this was for me.  After I decided to build, she would routinely check on the house for me and send me photos.  Any questions I had, I knew I could call her.  The day of closing on my house, she was with me.  She made the whole experience easier.  I would work with her again—hands down.”

Susan Southport, NC

“Caryl, Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work making our dream come true and for  helping our friends close on a deal to purchase their home in St James that we thought was impossible .  It is so nice to be represented by a person that lives in St James and knows what true values are when purchasing a home or property.  Also having the knowledge of dues, taxes and hundreds of other questions really made the process easy and low stress.  We started out as strangers and now look at you as a friend…

Thanks Doug & Eileen St James Plantation, NC

"Caryl has assisted me as my Real Estate Specialist with properties in Oak Island, NC.  I live in Massachusetts.  Caryl not only tended to her end of the paperwork regarding my transactions but went above and beyond in assisting me with my tenants, cleaning services and any other referrals I needed.  If I were ever to buy or sell property in North Carolina, Caryl would be the first and only person I would have working for me.

Naomi, Oak Island

"I found Caryl online while looking for a retirement home in NC from my house in New Jersey.  After seeing many homes that might fit the bill and emailing back and forth for several months, we planned a trip down south to meet with her.  Knowing our time was precious, she filled our day with visiting many properties from many different communities and neighborhoods in the area that we were interested in.  Caryl was a joy to work with.  She listened to what we were looking for and focused in on those desires.  Our trip was most successful and we closed on our special southern cottage this past January.  I would highly recommend Caryl Hudson to help anyone who is coming into the area and wanting to buy a home.  We love it here!

Donna  Supply ,NC 

​ "We were new to the area and looking for investment property. Caryl understood our objective and advised us on the whole spectrum of what was available, including places that she did not represent. Her knowledge and objectiveness allowed to make the best decision for us. Moreover, she gave us wonderful advice concerning our eventual relocation and has since become our friend."

Mark & Marcia St James Plantation, NC

 “Caryl took time to really understand what I was looking for, to research what was available that fit those parameters in my price range, and soon found me my "dream house."

Pastor Lee Bay City, Michigan 

“During our search for a home in St. James, we were very pleased with Caryl’s knowledge of the market and what homes were available in our price range.
