It takes a lot of commitment to specialize in a specific area in Real Estate. Considering the beauty of Southeastern North Carolina and the potential income for a broker as a member of a regional MLS , some may think we are taking a big chance branding ourselves as Downtown and Historic Home Specialists.
And we are. The result is the benefit of our knowledge and experience passed on to our clients, whether buyers or sellers. Knowledge about the neighborhoods and amenities of each, the history of homes and the downtown characters who have inhabited them, historic district rules and regulations, and where to get locals deals on half price wine on a Tuesday night. Our experience in renovating three homes and working with local contractors proves invaluable to our buyers. This same experience goes a long way in selling older homes by negotiating repairs and guiding our clients in pricing their homes. When it is time to sell your treasured older home, you want an agent who will proudly represent your home, who knows the neighborhood, who knows the ins and outs of inspections with older homes, and who has the patience to help educate buyers on the nuances of owning an older home.
We live and work in downtown Wilmington. I have raised two sons here; walking to the library for story time and skating to the parks. We treasure our after dinner strolls on the Riverwalk and love to meet friends for dinner and drinks at many of the outdoor cafes. Jim and I want to share our love of downtown with you.
Check back here often for tips on selling your older home, buying in Downtown and adjacent historic neighborhoods, and locals only knowledge about changes in downtown, new businesses and buildings, and where to get half priced bottles of wine any night of the week!
“But yield who will their separation,
My object in living is to unite
My avocation and my vocation
As my two eyes make one in sight.
Only where love and need are one,
And the work is play for mortal stakes,
Is the deed ever really done
For Heaven and the future's sakes.”
― Robert Frost
