Jen Peterken

I entered the real estate industry armed with one of the most important assets any real estate professional can possess - a great understanding of human nature. With a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in social work, I quickly connect with people from all walks of life and thrive on making a positive difference in their lives.  I listen carefully to my clients' needs and strive to forge strong relationships while achieving people's real estate goals.  I've also been the buyer's agent on Katie Moore Real Estate Team since 2012 where I also assisted with real estate appraisals and listings. Coupled with being a North Carolina native, and calling Wilmington home since 1998, I bring a wealth of local knowledge, my trademark energy and optimism to every real estate transaction. I am active in the community as a former member of the Board of Directors with the March of Dimes (and 5K race director), Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon staff and have served on various committees of the Wrightsville Beach PTA. I also am the head of the Girls On The Run program at WBS.  When I'm not hard at work for my clients, I enjoy running, laughing and spending quality time with my family.

Meredith Merrill

Originally from Raleigh and a native of upstate New York, Meredith has enjoyed the coastal lifestyle in Wilmington since 1987, when she enrolled in college at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. She is well-versed in the Eastern North Carolina area and all that it has to offer. Her interest in real estate began twenty-five years ago when she started carefully following the market trends and development of this area’s growth-  buying and selling real estate for personal investment.

With Master’s degree in English, she has spent the last twenty-five years working as an educator in the North Carolina Community College system as a writing instructor, recruiter and adviser. These experiences have provided her the opportunity to help people achieve their educational and professional pursuits. Meredith now brings that same enthusiasm, professionalism, and expertise to her real estate clients. She looks forward to helping individuals and families realize their real estate dreams. 

In her personal time, Meredith loves travel, fitness, boating.  She also enjoys spending time with  friends and her family. her husband, Justin, a middle-school teacher; their two children, Skyler and Gabriella; and their English bulldog/boxer, Roxy.

Maggie Bennington

I graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a degree in political science.  I attended Wake Forest University School of Law and went straight into the practice of law after graduation and passing the bar exam.  I moved to Wilmington almost 14 years ago, and I love being on the coast.  While I still actively practice law, I developed an increasing interest in real estate over the years.  There are so many beautiful homes at the beach.  I obtained my real estate license in an effort to get involved in the market.  I love interacting with people and real estate gives me the opportunity to do just that while showing different properties.  I decided to join the Katie Moore team because I know Katie well.  She knows and loves Wrightsville Beach/Wilmington and is one of the most energetic people I know!  In my free time, I love playing tennis and spending time with my family.
