Brett's family has called the Wilmington area home since the 1700's, forging a family tradition nearly three centuries strong. Throughout his lifetime, Brett has been presented with many opportunities elsewhere, but has always remained loyal to this wonderful coastal community. "All my business decisions have been based on my hometown," Brett says. "My family is here. I love the beaches, and my family's heritage is here. I can't imagine anything that could ever take me away from this area."
Wilmington's small town charm tends to easily captivate people that way. Brett's earliest memories are those of splashing in the water at his grandparents' beach house. To this day, he and his wife and two daughters can be found at Brett's parents home every Friday night for a family cook out. With family ties this strong to the community, nothing could ever lure Brett away from Wilmington. After graduating from college (UNC Wilmington, of course), Brett was a fast-rising employee of a major international bank. When presented with the opportunity for a promotion requiring a move to another state, Brett assessed his priorities and kindly replied, "No thanks."
This scenario has played itself out several times and in each instance, his answer has been the same. "Raising my family here means more to me than any job ever could," Brett says with his friendly Southern smile. It should come as no surprise then, that Brett's solution to this dilemma was to tie his business career to the community he's so passionate about.

Bret helped us with the sell of my mom's home and our home in 2020.
Through his efforts we managed to sell our home in three days with a full offer and rent back from the new home owner until our new home was completed. Bret also completed the sell of our moms home in less than a month at near full asking price just after having to admit our mom to a nursing home. Both sales went through with a hitch. Bret and his staff was very influential in the purchase of our new home.
Brett has handled several real transactions for me over a 15-year period and he deserves to have the reputation of having sold the most houses for 20 years in a row! He is very knowledgeable about real estate transactions and is always level-headed.
Brett was extremely helpful in in the prelisting phase. Good guidance on what needed to be updated and what was unnecessary. He and his team handled key points throughout the process so we knew what we needed to expect. He had an excellent plan for creating immediate interest in the property through photography and video. We had about 8 appointments the first day property went live. And received an offer in 5 days.
