Colie Dooley
Chief Executive Officer/Founder

Designer, builder and developer, Colie L. Dooley, Jr. is driven by passion and purpose. He entered the Real Estate profession in 1974 as a sales person. In 1977, he acquired his Broker’s License and opened his first Real estate Company. He then obtained his GRI at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill to be the top in Real Estate knowledge. Having set his goals on becoming one of the most knowledgeable realtors, he wanted to incorporate not only sales, but successful subdivisions in Wilmington, NC. which earned him the reputation as a “niche” builder.

After seeing years of rising utility and construction costs producing unaffordable homes, he decided to do something about the problem. Dooley researched for 3+ years and is still researching every day. Colie Dooley learned his most valuable lessons in his later years as a modular home builder. The idea was great; however, the problem with building modular homes was even greater. With his experience and knowledge, starting in 2005, Colie developed the Green Hybrid Habitats (GHH) concept; a Pre-Fabulous, high performance flood and storm proof home. Green Hybrid Habitats is in the process of building 4 flood and storm proof model homes in Little River, SC.


Tres Dooley

Born: October 11, 1968 – Heaven Bound: December 12, 2014 

Tres was born in Charleston, SC and moved to Wilmington, NC at the age of 3. He graduated from Laney high school then moved to Seattle, WA where he received his degree as a professional diver from the Diver Institute. He moved back to Wilmington, NC and attended Cape Fear Community College where he received a degree in Marine Biology.

At the age of 23, his father Colie Dooley, “drafted” Tres into the family building business. As with everything in life, he exceled at everything he did. He passed the SC Residential Builder License the first time and was his father’s right hand man in building thriving businesses. His motto, which was on the back of his business cards was, “We do the job right even when no one is looking”.

Tres suffered a “widow maker” heart attack at the age of 43 and survived. Three and half years later, on the evening of December 12, 2014 , he suffered another and was taken from this earth.


Pastor Tom Gore

Having had the honor of serving God through churches, church plants and state conventions in New England, North and South Carolina, Tom is blessed to be able to serve with Green Hybrid Habitats.

Tom currently serves with the South Carolina Baptist Convention on the Church Planting Team. He considers it a joy to be the Dooley’s pastor and friend.

Tom and Michele have been able to call Colie and Frances friends for the past 10 years. A wonderful relationship that began at River of Life Baptist Church in Sunset Beach, N.C. where the theme verse is Psalm 84: 11, ‘For the Lord God is a sun and shield, the Lord gives grace and glory, he does not withhold the good from those that walk with integrity.’ We believe that church is not somewhere you go, but rather church is the body of Christ that sacrificially serves others in the name of Jesus. Our motto is ‘Don’t just go to church, be the church.

Under the skillful and humble leadership of President Alicia Zimmerman and CEO Colie Dooley, a Pay It Forward Program has been established to assist local ministries. Twenty percent of GHH net profit will be donated to organizations and ministries to prosper the beautiful name of Jesus. Managing GHH’s Pay It Forward Program is a task that Pastor Tom is excited to lead.

In Luke 8, the seed is the Word of God that bears much fruit. GHH believes that as a Christian born company, we will bear much fruit in the name of Jesus. By utilizing twenty percent of the net profits, we plan on sowing many seeds with various organizations for the Glory of God.

Carol Bailey

Carol Bailey
Real Estate Agent

Carol is passionate about her clients and the business of real estate. Originally from the Pittsburgh area, Carol began her career as an engineer and project manager working on projects all over the world in the energy/ oil & gas business.  She first got involved in real estate development as a consultant to the Army in Washington DC to site renewable energy technologies on Army bases around the U.S. Finally relocating to North Carolina, she found the southeastern coastal area an ideal location to practice real estate. Her project management skills certainly came in handy when she bought a historic home with “good bones” that needed updating. As she began to undertake the significant renovation effort to bring the “diamond in the rough” house back to its former coastal maritime glory, she learned much about home structure, foundations, systems, construction, form+function, design, staging, architecture, local contractors and many other relevant skills. She uses this first hand knowledge to assess properties to help her clients find the right homes in the right area.
