The Aerie Inn ~ New Bern, NC

“We initially found Rick’s website back in 2010 when we first entertained the thought of buying a bed and breakfast. I saved his site as a favorite and went about business as usual since the timing wasn’t right for us to buy. Keith and I would periodically peruse bed and breakfast for sale sites and dream about “someday.” Perusing different inns for sale became our Sunday morning over coffee time. It started to get more serious at the end of 2016. Keith found a B&B we really liked and we suddenly found ourselves planning a visit to a place we weren’t even sure we could afford. A hasty call was made to Rick who asked a lot of questions and then assured us we could afford the inn we were looking at and even look at higher-priced options. The first place we looked at wasn’t the right one for us, but when we found The Aerie Bed and Breakfast in New Bern, NC, we knew it was just perfect and were confident Rick would help us close on the inn of our dreams. We were so right! Rick helped us navigate all the requirements for our financing and put us in touch with the right people so that we could use some of our 401k funds for the downpayment. We are still in awe that we own such a beautiful B&B. Thanks Rick!”
