Up Your Arts Board Member Selected for ’40 under 40′

Published first at Star News Online

Congratulations to Up Your Arts Board member Robert Carroll who was recently selected for the 40 under 40 list by the Wilmington Star News! Here is an excerpt…

What are your guiding principles?

I only have one overarching guiding principle and that is to do the right thing. It applies to all people and situations, no matter the reason or season. My parents instilled it in me as a child and I am planting those very seeds in my three small children. Doing the right thing is also the cornerstone of my business and what my agents and I live and breathe.

How do you volunteer your time in the community?

I currently sit on the Member Involvement Committee and MLS Task Force within Brunswick County Association of Realtors and have recently been nominated as a candidate for the Board of Directors. Additionally, I’m the chairperson of the Board of Directors for Up Your Arts, a nonprofit organization based in Southport that benefits and promotes the creative and performing arts.

If you had a theme song for your life, what would it be?

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a big Elton John fan and while there probably aren’t too many songs in his prolific catalogue that fit my life or lifestyle, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that “I’m Still Standing” is my life’s theme song or at least one of my favorites.
