Annie Bryant Peterson, founder of Bryant Real Estate, started the company sometime around 1952. Timing is not exact because licenses were not required and she helped friends through the years locate properties to rent when visiting Wrightsville Beach.
Through the 50’s and 60’s Annie was a unique businesswoman for the times. Willing to take risks and purchasing houses, duplexes and triplexes for $1,000 to $2,000 down and renting them out to make their payments. In 1971 she opened the Silver Gull Motel, a 32-room motel with kitchenette facilities – the first of its kind anywhere.
In 1978, Bob Bryant, Annie’s nephew, joined the company as a sales agent. His background included a degree in Math and Math Education with minors in Computer Science and Physics from Florida State University, also teaching and sales for IBM. However new to the area, he was very familiar with Wrightsville Beach from vacationing here every summer as a child, doing odd jobs, including maintenance, painting and even house cleaning for the company. In 1986 he became a partner in Bryant Real Estate.
In 1990-91 he was Regional Vice President of the North Carolina Association of Realtors and headed up the Professional Standards Committee for the state. In 2009 Bob Bryant became sole owner of Bryant R.E. LLC dba Bryant Real Estate.
