The Owner/Broker of CENTURY 21 Sail/Loft Realty is a native of Eastern North Carolina. I actually went to school in New Bern, but spent much of my childhood in Oriental. My Grandparents and my mother’s brother and sister and their families lived in Pamlico County and we visited them almost every weekend. After college, I moved to the mountains of North Carolina and lived there until 1985, when I sold my successful vending business and relocated to my favorite place in the world, Oriental. My wife and I live on the river and enjoy the many different boats we watch traveling the waterway. I have sailed most of my life, but when I’m not out exploring with potential real estate purchasers I now find the fishing in Pamlico County to be what appeals to me most. Come on Down!
Suzanne, an Eastern North Carolina native, has a lifetime fondness for Pamlico County and the relaxed lifestyle that it offers. As a child, Suzanne and her family were frequent visitors of Kennels Beach where they enjoyed fishing and boating on the majestic Neuse River.
A graduate of East Carolina University , Suzanne earned a BA in Psychology an EDS degree in Counselor Education. When she moved to New Bern , NC in 1975, Suzanne worked for the judicial system in Carteret, Craven and Pamlico Counties. She was a School Counselor for Pamlico County Schools for six years. After 30 years of employment with the state government, Suzanne retired in 2005 to join the team of CENTURY 21 Sail/Loft Realty as an Associate Broker. Suzanne will use her “listening” experience as a counselor to help you find the property you desire.
Suzanne is a member of the Oriental Women’s Club. She has also served on the Hodges Education Foundation, the Camp Seagull/Seafarer Outreach Committee, the Board of Directors for the Pamlico County Partnership for Children, the Pamlico County Criminal Justice Partnership, the Pamlico County Juvenile Prevention Council and the adjunct faculty of Wesleyan College.

Suzanne enjoys living on the Neuse River in Oriental, NC. Her favorite pastime is watching the boating activity and beautiful sunsets on the Neuse River.

Although no longer active in the business, we honor “Miss Anne”, as she is affectionately known to her co-workers and friends, as a co-founder of our company. Anne moved to Pamlico County with her husband, Joe, in the early 1970’s. Anne’s parents had retired to Oriental years earlier and several of her relatives, including her oldest sister, Helen, still lived there. Just prior to relocating, Anne and Joe sold their 2200-acre waterfront development near New Bern. This property is now known as the Fairfield Harbor Community.
Although the Gwaltneys had planned for an early retirement, it just wasn’t in the cards. Anne and Joe purchased a beautiful wooded 60-acre waterfront tract near Oriental, which is now the Sail/Loft subdivision. It wasn’t long before the Gwaltneys founded Sail/Loft Realty, Inc., the area’s oldest and most respected real estate company. Anne and Joe operated Sail/Loft Realty until 1985, when it was sold to their children. In 1992 “Miss Anne” came out of retirement to sell real estate when her son, Larry, purchased the family business from his siblings.
“Miss Anne” is no longer with us, but her lovely spirit lives on at Sail/Loft Realty, Inc. Her son, Larry, is the Broker-in-Charge. Anne was very active in her church and community. She was an avid bridge player and known by many for her generosity and gracious hospitality. (Lovingly written by her son Larry)
