[mk_image src=”http://businessnc.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/annika-brock.jpg” image_size=”full”]
48; born in Lansing, Mich.; bachelor’s from UNC Chapel Hill and law degree from Campbell University; married with two children.
Why she chose to specialize in this field
Real estate, I believe, is one of the most positive practice areas because people are either happy to buy or happy to sell. More often than not, a transaction is a win-win for everyone.
Most memorable case
The most meaningful closing I handled was for a veteran who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. He had been homeless for many years but got help, got back up on his feet and purchased his first home. Guiding him through the process through closing was incredibly rewarding.
Best advice received
Return phone calls as soon as possible, even if you don’t have all the answers. There’s no better way of demonstrating to clients and other counsel that they matter to you.
Favorite vacation
Kiawah Island, as I have two kids under 9 and there are lots of things for the family to do together. Much of the island is in a conservation easement, and they do a great job protecting wildlife and the rich natural environment.
I have two adopted little boys, ages 5 and 7, and I love everything about them, from their amazing senses of humor to their passion for exploration. They’re the best things that have happened to me, together with my amazing spouse.

When she was 16…
Favorite book
The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.
TV show
Family Ties with Michael J. Fox.
I loved everything that wasn’t hard rock, and I still love listening to ’80s music in the car. Prince, Elton John, Journey, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Eurythmics, Madonna, Lionel Richie, etc.
Piano — I played for 10 years and competed a good deal in high school, placing second in the Young Artist Concerto Competition in Chapel Hill.
