Maria Tetterton,

Long-Term Property Manager

When you ask Maria about what she loves to do, it’s likely that you’ll hear the response: I love meeting strangers!

That’s Maria. The thing is they seldom remain strangers for long. It’s one of the reasons Maria is so good at her job.

As the Long-Term Property Manager at Sea Scape Properties, Maria has spent the last seven years helping renters find their perfect home and being sure that properties are well cared for.

Caring like it’s her own

For some people, caring for others just comes naturally. That’s Maria. She has the ability to be both the consummate professional, and at the same time making sure each property is cared for at the same high standards as she cares for her own.



Her ‘caring gene’ was demonstrated over nine years as a preschool teacher. And her consummate professional gene was put to work both as assistant manager at Barclay Place in Wilmington as an entrepreneur. For more than 25 years, Maria has owned and operated a decorative painting company, focused on restoring and updating furniture.

This caring may have been born-in, but it may also have been enhanced over time. Maria has two girls – both of whom are now in college. She spends lots of her free time promoting her daughters’ music careers – and is one of the hip #Momagers that cares about her kids from birth through profession.

From Raleigh to the Coast…

Growing up in Raleigh, NC, Wilmington was always a destination she was keen on. So after receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art at Meredith College, she headed down the coast to the more consistently warm small city of Wilmington. She’s stayed for 26 years, and if that’s not an indicator of just how much she loves this place, well, what would be?

What does she love so much about this unique place she now calls home? The sunshine plays a big role, because it allows her to invest more time in paddleboarding, boating, fishing, and longer days just hanging out at the beach. When the sun goes down, she’s generally exercising, reading, or seeing live music with her friends. She enjoys meeting all kinds of people, and says “I get to do that with all the owners and tenants I meet.”

Maria is who you want managing your property!

When it comes to managing properties, Maria is the one to have on your side. She knows what it takes to keep your property rented year round with the right type of tennants.
