A Charlotte native and a Wrightsville Beach regular for almost 30 years, Happy Clark was thrilled to call Wilmington home after 13 years in New York City.

Happy’s market knowledge, work ethic and solid judgment serves her clients well. And her approach is focused on creating a flawless client experience from beginning to end - driven entirely by her buyers and sellers needs.  She fully understands the significance of your investment, and works tirelessly to answer questions, eliminate challenges and inject fun along the way.  She loves meeting new people and having relocated herself, truly enjoys helping people get settled into the Wilmington area.


Happy received her BA and MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and had a successful 20-year career in sales, marketing and business development prior to joining Intracoastal Realty.

After working in advertising sales in Atlanta and for several non-profits in Charlotte, an MBA internship at the American Express Company led to 13 years of increasing responsibility, where she last served as Vice President of Business Development in the U.S. Consumer Card Group.  Prior to that, she led the U.S. Consumer Platinum® Card team and developed leading partnerships for the Centurion Card®. She partnered with Fortune 500 companies and leading luxury companies to deliver innovative solutions, develop go-to-market strategies, create impactful marketing programs and negotiate complex contracts for her affluent customer base. She was awarded both the Chairman’s Award for Innovation and The President’s Achievement Award in this role.
