Originally from San Diego, I moved to Coastal Virginia area in the late 90's. Unlike so many people I meet who don't like the weather here; I love it! I love the seasons, that we get just enough snow to have a few days off every winter and build a snowman, and the hot summers full of perfect beach days! I love the ocean and the close proximity to Washington DC and so much more than that. People often ask me how I ever left San Diego, but the truth is, I have never looked back. 

I had an interest in real estate from a very young age. I'm naturally a relationship person so getting to pair making a living with helping people elevate their lifestyle and make one of the most important decisions of their lifetime feels like a true win-win. 

As far as I'm concerned, real estate is a job I never plan to retire from!

Real estate agent, military spouse, graphic designer and proud mother of two. Dedicated to help my clients reach their real estate goals and dreams.

Karian Martinez - VA & NC REALTOR®/Habla Español

There is nothing more gratifying than to see my client’s dreams come true. This was the biggest part of my “Why” when I decided to become a Realtor. As a wife and military spouse of seventeen (17) years and mother of two (2) boys, I know the unique challenges that come with buying and selling homes. I am dedicated and passionate about ensuring that the process of selling or buying a house is a stress free and pleasant process. My family and I live and work in North Carolina and Virginia, so it was an obvious choice to become licensed in both states so that I can provide service to my clients where they work, live and play! As a transplant from Puerto Rico I am fluent in both English and Spanish, which allows me to reach a greater demographic and impact communities within our area that have gone without a voice in the market. Throughout my many moves with the military, I have been able to obtain my B.A. in Advertising along with an M.A. in Business Administration. My education, dedication, passion and perseverance coupled with a heart towards service and leadership allows me to provide an experience for my clients that is incomparable. My goal is to make, what can often be a very stressful process, a very smooth, exciting and happy memory. Being a part of making your real estate goals a reality is what I do and I pride myself on doing it with excellence. No dream is too big or too small and I love being a partner in this endeavor. Let’s go Vertical together!

Hi I’m Jackie Schuette of Vertical Real Estate. I am originally from California where I went to college to get my nursing degree.  I loved working as a nurse, but always had a passion for Real Estate, so I went back to school and became a Real Estate Agent.  I feel so blessed to have found a wonderful team to work with here at Vertical Real Estate.  I would love to help you find the perfect dream home, investment or help you sell your current home.  


Being a military wife I have lived and owned homes in many states.  I have been in Chesapeake for over a decade and I know the area extremely well.  I have experience in owning and self-managing long term rental properties and weekly vacation rentals at the Ocean Front.  I am looking forward to helping you with any of your real estate needs!

Brooke Mora - NC Broker/VA REALTOR®

Hello, My name is Brooke Mora and I want to thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit about me and what I have to offer you when it comes to your real estate needs.  I have called Coastal Virginia, or more specifically, Chesapeake, Virginia, my home for almost a decade.Taking a leap of faith and relocating from rural Pennsylvania became a great move for my family and I.

I started up a small business in Norfolk, which was successful and rewarding and from there moved on to study Professional Appraisal Practice in Real Estate. I then took it one step further and became a Realtor shortly thereafter and haven't looked back since!  I am dual licensed in VA and NC so I have the flexibility of helping my clients buy or sell in either state. 

 I love being a Realtor andam so fortunate to be surrounded by an amazing team of professionals who's number one goal is to help families and individuals achieve their dream of home ownership. I care about my clients and will do so with honesty, loyalty and 100% commitment. That is what I bring to real estate and I do so out of a passion for my job and the people I work for.

If you are a seller looking to move on, I willaggressively market your home using the latest technology. Whether you are a seller, first time buyer, or seasoned investor, I will negotiate the best terms and conditions on your behalf with the least amount of time and inconvenience to you, keeping you informed every step of the way. My job is to guide you through a real estate transaction that you will be satisfied with. I want your repeat business and referrals for years to come!

“They say that buying a house is the largest and most stressful purchase you’ll ever make in your life. Although I cannot argue that this will be one of your largest purchases, my job, as your agent, will be to take as much of the stress away as possible and make your home buying experience an exciting adventure for you!

A little about myself, I was born and raised in the Cocoa Beach area of Florida. My husband is in the Navy, and when found out we were moving to Virginia Beach, we were excited and nervous! Moving here is one of the best things that has happened in my life! We have been here since 2013 and plan to stay! My favorite feature of this area is the change of seasons. We have three sons, I’m a classic boy mom! Lots of baseball days and taekwondo nights!

I cannot wait to meet you and work with you to find your amazing new home!”

I am passionate about advocating on my clients' behalf on their unique needs, finances, and real estate goals. With my business background and talent for marketing and sales, I provide tremendous value to my clients. 

As a Military spouse for almost twenty years and with ten cross country moves, I know first hand the complexities of relocating to a new area.

I follow the Golden Rule!  I am ready to serve you with the selling your current home or buying your new home! 

Growing up in Hampton Roads with a lender father and agent mother, I'm a passionate product of my environment. Watching my hometown grow and expand was an amazing benefit for someone in my position. While I spent the majority of my life in Virginia Beach, I now live in North Eastern North Carolina and service clients in both states as our areas and industries continue to grown and merge. So many people in our area aren't from here because we are so transient, there are the few that fall in love and stay for extended periods of time but for me this is home and nothing else feels the same. I love that we enjoy all four seasons, that we came from so little and grew to so much, I love our rich history and that we are the true heartbeat of our nation's military, I love that beautiful beaches are a staple necessity of our daily lives and that we are the perfect middle ground between the business of the North and the party of the South. I've enjoyed watching our area explode over the course of my life, I feel like the Seven Cities real estate industry and I grew up together as siblings and I wouldn't want to sell anywhere else. Being a 2nd generation agent, it's just feels like part of who I am and a natural part of my identity. I have a unique perspective and ability to read the markets pulse because of my history here and in our industry and I really enjoy sharing that advantage with my clients as we navigate some of the biggest transactions, investments and relocations of their lives. I'm very lucky to be doing exactly what I was meant to do and I can't wait to work with you! 

The experience I had with my Realtors after I sold my first home, was the match that ignited the passion I have carried for all things HOME. My experience superseded every expectation that I had. 

Now that I am a Realtor, I know that the same level of patience, service and dedication that I received are all things that I get to bring to each client transaction.

Every house has the potential to be a home and that takes an expert with vision. When my clients looking for new construction need a second opinion on finishes, a first time home buyer wants decorating and organization advice, an investor is looking for a steal of a deal or a seller needs to know the best strategy as to how to how to get their house sold, I bring superior negotiating skills, market knowledge, attention to detail and vison that takes each interaction Vertical.  

I have heard that big things come in small packages and I know that this proves true with my level of service, dedication, perseverance, vision and tenacity. 

It is always my intention to leave each client feeling the exact same way I felt after I sold my house. Satisfied, Expectations Exceeded and the opportunity for you to know what Making your Next move Vertical feels like!

The two pieces of advice for real estate everyone hears are "location, location, location" and "know somebody." I have lived or worked in every one of Tidewater's 7 cities so I know all the locations and know a lot of somebodies. I want to get to know you too so I can help you with all your real estate needs but first you can get to know a little about me.

I was born and raised in Norfolk and graduated from Granby High and Old Dominion University. I have over 15 years of experience in customer service that included experience in management and negotiation. The trifecta of a promotion, new orders for my wife (naval officer), and the allure of the capital pulled me away to northern Virginia/DC for a few years but when it was time to settle down and start a family coming back down home was the only option. After a short time off for our first born I turned my attention back to my career and real estate and haven't looked back yet.

After being personally involved in multiple real estate transactions as a customer, I understood the value an agent can bring to a client and how positively they can influence the transaction experience. I wanted to be this positive influence and quickly found I had a passion for helping people find houses to turn into homes. I believe trust is earned and it is my job to provide value to my client if I want their trust.

For most people buying property is the single largest purchase they will make in their lifetime and the cornerstone for their families wealth building. I treat each transaction with the care and detail I would expect if it was my own family.

Mike and Shannon live in Suffolk Virginia with their two boys, Dominic (12) and Daniel (8). Their son Collin (29) lives in South Florida and we have two children celebrating eternity in Heaven. 


Mike has 30 years of entrepreneurial and senior leadership experience and is a Servant Leader.  Mike previously worked as a Realtor in Hampton Roads for ten years and has decided to return to the business. As part of the Vertical team, my mission is to glorify God by conducting my relationships with the highest level of integrity and doing what I say I will. 


I know the Hampton Roads area very well and stay on top of latest market trends to give you the best service. I am also a former law enforcement officer and firefighter/medic.

At this point in her life, Renee was called by the beach!  In 1996, VA Beach, VA became her home and her career advancement continued.  Renee became the youngest director at Atlantic Bank.  She headed up the Marketing and Sales departments.

Hey, I'm Micah!

I'm a native of Castle Rock, Colorado. I moved to the Hampton Roads at the beginning of 2014 for a duty assignment in the navy. Like many of the service members who move to the area, I've found that there are a lot of opportunities here, and I'm excited to be able to share my active duty perspective with potential future clients; both military and non-military.

While I still have five years left in the navy before retirement, I believe it's essential to plan for the future. Real estate is an exciting and interesting career. A mentor of mine (also a REALTOR® in Denver) gave me a great piece of wisdom: "Believe in the vision of clients and customers and, in turn, they'll believe in your ability to make their vision a reality."

Homes are generally the largest asset individuals and families buy or sell, and they're meant to be carefully evaluated for the benefit of the buyer and seller. Because of this, my mission is focused on integrity in the process, professionalism, and always complete honesty.

Vertical Real Estate is my dream job. Not only are the people great and knowledgable, but teamwork shines in the smiles of the firm's customers' faces. Everyone here has everyone's back, and that's the team our customers deserve.
