I am a native of Wilmington and have watched this community continue to grow and prosper year after year. I graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in communications and worked at a local radio station for almost two years. Karen and I met in 1994 and we were married in 1997. Before we were married I decided that I would prefer to work for myself and started a landscaping company. I ran my business for 20 years before deciding to make a change and work with Karen, to help grow her real estate business. After I received my real estate license in 2013 I began working on the Karen Schwartz Team as the closing coordinator. My main job is to make sure that all our closings run smoothly and there are no surprises. I work closely with our clients from contract to closing, doing everything from providing tips on inspections, working with the attorneys to coordinate information, picking the right contractors for repairs & more! On occasion I get to put on my buyer’s agent hat and assist our clients when viewing properties and I also hold open houses. Another job I have is to assist with preparing our listings for the market and all of the tasks during the listing process. There is so much to know in this business and I really like helping our clients navigate through the process.
