I am a native North Carolinian from Durham. My wife and I have relocated to Wilmington/Carolina Beach and we love the area. The area is growing and it is a perfect area to relocate, buy in a second home or enjoy the benefits of owning coastal investment property.I have over 15 years of full time real estate experience including operating my own brokerage and property management firm. I have worked with numerous buyers and sellers. In addition to the required CE updates I hold the Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designation. I have held a N.C. real estate broker's license for over 30 years.I also am a licensed Residential General Contractor in North Carolina having built houses in the Durham market.Before working full time in the real estate industry, I worked 28 years in the hospitality industry in a family owned industry in Durham.My wife and I have three grown children and a 10 year old granddaughter. We enjoy taking in the many activities that the area has to offer.In my spare time I enjoy oil painting, playing the guitar, playing chess and reading.
