Wendy Hughes is an associate attorney in our real estate department. She was born in southeastern North Carolina and is happy to call it home. She began her legal career as a legal assistant in a rural community near Fayetteville, N.C. She worked for several years as an auditor in the banking industry before pursuing her law career at Campbell University. Upon graduating from Campbell with a joint JD/MBA degree, she decided to return home to practice law and serve the area that has meant so much to her.
Her practice area focuses on residential real estate transactions. In this transaction type of “dirt law," she works daily with realtors and lenders to ensure clients' interests are served and protected. Whether assisting first time home buyers or seniors preparing for retirement as they transition out of their family home, she truly enjoys helping clients feel comfortable and confident as they navigate through one of the largest financial transactions they may ever undertake.
Wendy, her husband, and two daughters are heavily involved in community outreach. They have worked for more than twenty years attempting to assist the hurting and less fortunate in our area. Some of their efforts have included establishing a non-profit organization and opening a K-12 private school to reach the underserved in our community.
After law school, Wendy worked in the title insurance industry as an Underwriting Counsel for a title insurance agency. She also worked with our firm as an Attorney in the Title Curative and Foreclosure Departments and then rejoined the firm as a real estate attorney in 2016. She helped us open our new Southport location in October 2017.
