O'Mara Dunnigan REALTOR®
Keller Williams Flagship of Maryland (Millersville)
701-200-4240 cell
410-729-7700 office 
I grew up in the Midwest- MN and ND where I earned my bachelor's degree in Marketing and Management. I then moved to CA and worked in the international sales division of a software company where I collaborated with top executives around the world in essentially every industry. 4 years ago my husband's job as an engineer for a government defense contractor transferred us to MD. We have since started a family and have fallen in love with everything Maryland has to offer!

I have now transferred my skills from the corporate world to that of residential real estate. I love the fast paced environment, being on the front line and always advocating for my clients. My ability to understand and analyze the market, communicate openly and work with honesty and integrity are the backbone of my business. This foundation coupled with the Mid-Atlantic powerhouse organization of Long & Foster makes for a winning combination.
I would be honored to help you make MD your next home! I sincerely hope to hear from you soon!

Hampton Roads / Tidewater, Virginia

I have lived in Edenton for 17 years. For most of that time, I have enjoyed making a home for and raising 2 children with my husband. I worked for Albemarle Plantation for a few years working in Customer Service and Marketing. It really wet my appetite to further explore getting my Real Estate License. I recently obtained my real estate license in March of 2013. I am a graduate of JY Monk in Raleigh, NC. I have enjoyed my first 2 years of real estate and look forward to establishing myself even more as a Realtor in the Prettiest Little Town in the South"! 2014 has brought me many new clients and I have enjoyed working with several Coast Guard families. I really enjoy helping families relocate and get acclimated to their new surroundings. I have also had the pleasure of working with several retired families who are looking forward to unwinding and slowing down their pace. Northeastern North Carolina is just such a place to do that. We are surrounded with beauty and quietude in abundance. Working with buyers is my passion. I enjoy meeting new people and help them become North Carolinians! 

Covering Perquimans and Chowan Counties, as well as Elizabeth City (and surrounding counties northeast).  
My husband and I just moved to E city last summers transfer season and we started to talk with Heather about what we wanted and she was right there with us from the start since we ended up buying a home. My husband and I were very picky as to who we we're gonna use since we had a bad experience with real estate agents in the past but once we found Heather I can honestly say that I would for sure recommend her to the fullest.   She gave more than 100% of her time to us and we trusted her knowledge and expertise when it came to what we wanted. She does work with a lot of military families that move to E city so I for sure would recommend to anyone that moves out here to use her.

Heather Whistler and I met back in September when we first began our house search. From our first phone call she listened to everything we were looking for. When there was a house we were interested in she got us in there to check it out the same day or that week. Heather was beyond accommodating especially with the fact I had to do the entire process alone with my 3 kids because of my husbands’ work obligations. She would always hold my kids if they needed it so I could actually focus and look around the house. If I had any questions no matter the time of day she was available to answer them, and we honestly don’t have enough great words to say. We closed on our home in January ‘16 and couldn’t be happier. We are so thankful that we had Heather there for every step. If you are in the Elizabeth City, NC area and need a real estate agent, Heather is your girl!

Proud Military Spouse!!
As a new realtor, my goal is to be what Cat Portock was to our family the Spring/Summer 2018. At the time, we lived in Colorado and needed to sell our home in New Jersey, simultaneously planning a military move to Florida. So needless to say, it was a stressful time for our family.  

Enter Cat Portock. As a retired Coast Guard spouse, she knew first hand the struggles that we would be dealing with as out of state sellers. From the start, she reassured us that she would be there every step of the way. Cat worked with our tenants to make sure they were taken care of while showing the home to prospective buyers. Throughout the whole process, Cat kept us up to date and answered all the questions that we had. She was great to work with and I highly recommend her to all local folks in South Jersey and any incoming military families!
