Rita came to Hertford 10 years ago to visit a friend, fell in love with the area, and went home to pack! She learned to fish, bought a boat, found a home on the river, and has settled effortlessly into life in the country. Having lived from the West Coast to the East and points in between – NC feels most like home! Retired from accounting and tax work, she decided she needed a new career with more personal interaction, but still wanted to be self-employed. A real estate career at Long and Foster of Elizabeth City was the natural choice!
