Our Team

Executive Properties is owned by Bruce and Melanie Gates who are both Goldsboro/Wayne County Realtors. In addition, they are a retired military husband and wife real estate team with strong personal ties to Goldsboro and to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and the military families that reside in our area. We strongly believe that our military background helps us to be better real estate professionals, and has given us the ability to help our clients overcome any challenges associated with their pursuit of the American Dream.
