The Willetts Team is a full service Real Estate Company owned and managed by Emily Willetts. Devoted to all aspects of real estate, our business has now expanded to include the acquisition and marketing of New Homes Communities and Property Development.

Originally from Seattle, Emily married her husband Bill, a Brunswick County native, in 1964 and relocated to the area. She began her real estate business over 35 years ago and has been a consistent multi-million dollar producer throughout her career.

Education and achievement have always been priorities for Emily. This has led her to obtain designations and leadership positions within the industry and earned her a reputation she "wouldn't trade for anything" - that of honesty, integrity and knowledge of the real estate business that she loves. Her business continues to thrive, coming 100% from personal referrals from her much-valued clients and agent relationships built upon through years of networking nationwide.

Emily's consistent thinking "outside of the box", fueled her desire to create an organization that not only meets these challenges, but allows her to continue to lead the way in today's global marketplace. This innovative management style led her to be the first in the area to hire a full time Sales and Marketing Director whose focus is developing and orchestrating the most effective way generate viable leads.

Generating viable leads, however, is not the only component that results in the sale of real estate. This requires an agent whose wisdom and expertise can match qualified buyers with listings. Emily has assembled a team of the areas top-producing Brokers, whose standard of excellence patterns her own.

Willetts Properties has distinguished itself from the competition with a proven track record for success. We continue to be the leading choice for both homebuyers and sellers.

Emily Willetts is an extremely experienced and knowledgeable Realtor. Her assistance and advice has always been exactly what I needed, even when I had no idea what I wanted! She is easy to communicate with, very supportive, and a gracious, kind person.
I have been working with her for several years,and would never use anyone else. I consider myself fortunate to have had her handle my real estate needs, and grateful for all her support. I'm happy to call her a friend as a well!

Since I was living out of state during the purchase process, Rob Dooley was great about keeping me informed. He was always available to answer my questions and was very helpful in what could have been a stressful situation. Rob also is a good listener and understood what I was looking for. He is very knowledgable about the area and made the search for my new home an enjoyable experience. The office staff and his co workers were very helpful, friendly and welcoming as well. I would highly recommend them to anyone locating to this area.

Emily was both professional and fun. She helped me understand the process which would have been a mystery without her. After I decided what I wanted to do, which was build, she connected me with all the right people and facilitated ongoing contact throughout the entire process. I did not live locally so Emily took pictures for me every week so that I could see and know how things were progressing. This was both essential and comforting to me as I could not do it for myself. Emily was a true gift and I would highly recommend her.
