wilmington: Does the Consumer Believe Us? - 03/16/12 11:51 PM
I'm putting in a little more time on the internet, and a little less time with showings for a few weeks.  I'm surprised at what I'm seeing!  The media is actually trying to help us and put a happy face on regarding the housing, lending, and the state of the economy.  I have been most positive during this time and other than looking at high unemployment rates for our area, feel that we will be heading in the right direction very soon. 
Every day, it seems, whether from the Internet and all it's social tributaries, newspapers, TV, magazines....there is one real clear message..."It is … (3 comments)

wilmington: 104 Havana Court....The Palms at Mallory Creek Plantation - 04/06/09 05:36 AM
The title gives this new neighborhood away....Palm trees!  Plenty of them, from the richly appointed entrance way, continuing past the pool and clubhouse, to the entrance of the neighborhood "The Palms" 

Palms everywhere! 
 Now I'm not a great tree affectionate, or a lover of trees....but palm trees...yes!  There is something about palm trees that gives one a sense of calmness, warmth, and serenity of a far away tropical island.
Tropical island?  Think tropical colors, think warm tropical breezes, think gentle winds.  Sounds perfect doesn't it??  Well this neighborhood at "The Palms" may just be your answer to help gently ease those winter … (4 comments)

Today Thursday August 7, 2008, in Wilmington North Carolina, while doing some prospecting  for our upcoming "Open Houses" this weekend, I happened to "catch a wave"  Let me explain.....
It is hot today....about 90 degrees, sunny, and beautiful...similar to many summer days in this part of the country.  I love this area!  It has been twelve years in my new adopted home, and I wished we had moved here years ago.  Coming from Saratoga, New York, it was not hard to appreciate what this great area has to offer.   GREAT WEATHER, BEAUTIFUL BEACHES, FRIENDLY PEOPLE, AND THIS......
