About Us


Palm Air Realty is an outgrowth of Palm Air Cottages, which operated as a 6 unit vacation rental business originating in 1954.

We, Ea Ruth, Broker/REALTOR® and Anne Brodsky, Office Manager, purchased the business in 2004. Together we started Palm Air Realty, Inc in February 2009 when we realized our deep passion for serving people desiring fun vacations and home ownership in the wonderful communities of Kure and Carolina Beach. It was a natural transition to formulate a Real Estate firm to grow Real Estate sales and expand Property Management. 

Anne has her Bachelor’s degree in Education and her Master’s degree in Social Work & Counseling. She was the manager of Palm Air Cottages from 2006 – 2009 where she oversaw growth during a tough economic climate. Anne serves on several community boards that offer a continuum of services for guests and owners on Pleasure Island.

Ea has a North Carolina real estate license and an Associate’s degree in Business Management. She has nearly 8 years experience working in the Real Estate industry and understands the beach real estate market. Ea's entrepreneurial spirit, attention to detail, sensitivity to individual needs, strong negotiation skills, self-motivation, and thoroughness are just some of the driving forces behind the unsurpassed integrity, professionalism and ease of customer relations you will find at Palm Air Realty.

Whatever your real estate needs; customer service ranks #1 at our firm. Palm Air Realty offers expert assistance with all types of residential properties, vacation properties, and home sites; as well as referrals of highly accredited professionals for home construction, renovation, interior design or staging needs that you might have. 

The southern coast of North Carolina offers more than just a place to live, it offers a lifestyle brimming with sun, sand, golf, boating and a culture of history deeply ingrained throughout Wilmington and the local beaches. These opportunities and past-times are what make the greater Wilmington beaches so popular with year-round residents, retirees, and second-home vacationers.

Ea and Anne are both active community volunteers offering time and aid to the following important community events and organizations:

Disabled Fisherman's Tournament
Island of Lights Organization
Kure Beach Disc Golf
Kure Beach Town Banners
Pink Houses of Hope
Salty Paws Festival
Pleasure Island Seafood, Blues & Jazz Festival
Pleasure Island Free Weekly Summer Fireworks & Concert Series

Our key objective at Palm Air Realty, Inc is to embrace all our interactions and activities as a cohesive, harmonious team focused on exemplifying our mission. Just as customer satisfaction is an intricate part of our success, so is our internal satisfaction and working relationships. That is why we believe that exemplary workers along with client and guest satisfaction make our company a success and will be the key to our longevity.

At Palm Air Realty, Inc, we stake the success of our business on our strong-held belief that integrity matters. We maintain the highest level of community and customer interaction possible to promote this belief.
