Leader. Carrie leads a vibrant and innovative real estate team consisting of herself, Murray Padgett (her husband), Merritt Cooch, Shawn McDonnell, Jessica Shomper, Samantha Broadhurst, Jamie Romano, and Ian Lawrence. As captain of a state championship field hockey team at Cape Henlopen High School, two NCAA championship teams at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, and the US National Field Hockey team (representing the United States in multiple World Cup tournaments, the Pan American games, and the 2008 Beijing Olympics), Carrie has consistently used her drive and commitment to achieve success for herself and to facilitate success for her teammates.
Well-Rounded. In addition to her career at Jack Lingo, REALTOR®, Carrie sits on the boards of Delaware Wild Lands, Artisans' Bank, the Greater Lewes Foundation, and the Youth and Education Committee of Ducks Unlimited. She also serves as state treasurer for Ducks Unlimited and regularly volunteers her time as a member of the fundraising committee for the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Department. Never forgetting the roots of her field hockey career, she additionally serves as a volunteer coach for the Cape Henlopen High School field hockey team. As your agent at Jack Lingo, REALTOR®, Carrie will use her vast skills and life experiences to work on your behalf as you seek out your perfect home.
Sam's love for Lewes and Rehoboth Beach derives from a rich family history which reaches back not only to the second mayor of the City of Rehoboth Beach but also to those brave mariners who spent decades piloting ships along the Delaware Bay. Samantha's legacy in the area has given her a unique love and passion for her community. As a REALTOR® on the Carrie Lingo Team, she uses her exceptional knowledge and enthusiasm for Southern Delaware to give clients the best possible experience when buying or selling their homes!

JESSICA BERL, REALTOR®
RIESS LIVAUDAIS, REALTOR®
Riess Livaudais was born and raised in New Orleans, with family roots in the area going back to the mid-1700s. He grew up sailing at the Southern Yacht Club as well as fishing and duck hunting at the Tally Ho Club (the oldest such club in the country). After studying at the University of New Orleans, he taught sailing to children and teenagers. He then worked in the insurance business until Hurricane Katrina hit in August 2005. Following the devastation to his hometown and beloved Mississippi Gulf Coast, Riess threw caution to the wind and moved to Annapolis, Maryland to follow his lifelong love of and passion for competitive sailing. Shortly after moving to Annapolis, he met his husband, Brooks, while working for a sailing supplier in sales & customer service. His passion for real estate drove him to pursue a career as a REALTOR® in 2008. He began his career in the Baltimore, Annapolis, and Maryland Eastern Shore areas, specializing in historic homes.
In the past, Riess has been involved with fundraising and has served on the regatta committee for the Louisiana and Maryland chapters of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. He has chaired the event twice. He's also served as regatta chairman for numerous local and national championship events at Southern Yacht Club, where he is a fourth-generation member.
Riess's husband, Brooks, has been coming to Rehoboth Beach his entire life. He and Riess first visited together in Summer 2008 and subsequently spent every weekend with friends in Henlopen Acres. Riess fell in love with Rehoboth Beach immediately. Shortly thereafter, they purchased their first cottage in Broadkill Beach, which they outgrew rather quickly. Riess obtained his Delaware real estate license in 2012. They sold their historic home in Baltimore and purchased their full-time residence on the Rehoboth Beach Yacht & Country Club golf course in 2017. They also own a condo on the harbor in Baltimore, where Brooks has a dental practice.
Riess loves helping buyers find their perfect property, whether it’s a beach getaway, full-time, investment, or retirement home. His clients have always ended up becoming close friends with whom he and Brooks socialize frequently. He enjoys home renovation projects and has undertaken several over the years. He has designed and constructed these renovations himself. He also loves volunteering his time for good causes.
Riess and Brooks have an English springer spaniel, Roux, who is spoiled rotten. They are active members of the Rehoboth Beach Country Club and play tennis. They may learn to enjoy golf one day, since they live on the course. In his downtime, Riess enjoys going to the beach with friends, boating in the area's picturesque inland waterways, or dining out and supporting the area's many amazing local restaurants. Riess and Brooks know almost all the local restaurant owners.
