Meet Charles Swain, Broker/Realtor® with KBT Realty Group - Keller Williams INNOVATE. Charles grew up in Wilmington North Carolina, and is one of the original team members on with KBT Realty.
This is where I grew up, out here, fishing, boating, clamming, crabbing, just about anything you can think of on the creek.
Hi. I'm Charles Swain from KBT Realty Group with Keller Williams Innovate. Just to tell you a little bit about myself, I've been in Wilmington for over 50 years. Moved to Wilmington when I was three years old, from Southport, which is only like 40-45 minutes from here. Grew up in the Ogden area, which is the north side of Wilmington - some would consider that - and just grew up with the creek in our backyard. Just anything that involves the seafood life and the coastal life, and just great memories of growing up as a kid and a teenager doing all that stuff and boating all the time with friends. And if we weren't here, we were at the beaches, Wrightsville Beach, Carol ...

Meet Eve Martin, Broker/Realtor®, who lives and sells Oak Island North Carolina, and the surrounding coastal North Carolina communities:
Hi, my name is Eve Martin. I'm a member of the KBT Realty Group, and I've been in real estate for about six years now.
I moved to this area about eleven years ago. My husband is originally from Southport, so that's what brought me here from Virginia Beach, which was quite different in atmosphere, to say the least. But over the eleven years I've loved this area and being by the beach and having the access to just walk 15 minutes to the beach with the dog or anything like that.
I was in the beauty salon industry 30 years prior to getting into real estate and just love taking care of people. My parents lived in Virginia Beach, Virginia. That's where I was born. But then we moved to Florida, southwest Florida, and I spent most of my life there until I graduated high school. Then I got into the beauty salon industry and moved to Virginia Beach. ...

Joanna Prinz, with KBT Realty Group in Wilmington, works with buyers and sellers in Jacksonville, North Carolina, and the neighboring coastal towns.
Hi. My name is Joanna Prinz. I am an agent with KBT Realty. We're based in Wilmington, but my area is the Jacksonville, North Carolina area, which is north of Wilmington.
I grew up originally in Arizona, and it's a long story, but I came from Arizona and I lived in the mountains, and then my husband's job brought us to the coast, to Wilmington first and now Jacksonville. I have been in real estate for about three years, always interested in buying and selling homes.
I lived in Wilmington for ten years, and now I am here. I really enjoy the community. It has lots of things for families, children especially. As a family, we love going to the beach and going to the different parks. There's a wonderful park a little north of us that is called Hammock Beach Park, which you can go up. There's lots of hiking trails. You can ...

Hi, my name is Ashley Dance. I'm with KBT Realty Group of Keller Williams Innovate in Wilmington, North Carolina. I have been in real estate for about five years now in Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender Counties. There are occasions that I do go into Bladen County or Onslow County. It really just depends on the home and what my client is looking for.
So I am originally from Charlotte, born and raised. I lived right on the outskirts most of my life. My background is in purchasing. I've done purchasing for both stainless steel and for fabric all over the world. And I decided that - I had a little back surgery - and I decided that it was time to make a change in my life. I have family here in the Wilmington area and I thought well you're close to the coast so why not make a big change in my life?
So I packed up the house, sold it and came here. No job, no place to live as a matter of fact. And I found a quick apartment in about 3 hours and went back to Charlotte, packed everythi ...

Hey, I'm Nancy Schappell with KBT Realty Group. Just wanted to introduce myself and give you a little hint about the Wilmington area.
I've moved here recently, but I've been a Realtor for over 16 years. Love this area, and I love the master plan communities. I live in one, it's Brunswick Forest.
So here's what I love about Wilmington. First of all, I come from Pennsylvania, and we really just got tired of the winters. And so we started to make a plan as to where we were going to spend the next chapter of our lives. And we started south and worked our way up. And when we hit Wilmington, we felt like we found home. It wasn't a huge city. It was a city that just spoke to us. We loved the fact that it was on the water. We love the fact that it's 15 minutes, ten minutes to the beach. We loved all of the things that it offered. Good food, good culture, close to water. It was just the perfect place for us.
Funny story. I ran my husband's chiropractic practice for a really long time ...
