Eden Gilliam’s clients benefit from her caring, expertise, and more than 30 years of real estate experience.
Eden Gilliam is originally from New York. She was born in New York City, grew up in Westchester, and attended Syracuse University. She lived in North Carolina for 15 years before moving to Florida in 1985. In Florida, Eden worked in general real estate brokerage with Coldwell Banker and was also involved with the development of 150 townhomes in Punta Gorda, Florida. In addition to being recognized as a top seller every year from 1994-2000, Eden lent her expertise to the real estate Ethics Committee and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and United Way.
In 2002, Eden moved back to North Carolina to be closer to her family and the area she loves. “Wilmington always draws you back,” she says. “It’s the most amazing city.”
Since returning to home to North Carolina, Eden has continued her record of real estate excellence. She represented the new home communities of Sea Trail in Sunset Beach, NC and Magnolia Greens in Leland, NC. She returned to general real estate brokerage in 2011 and joined Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty in Leland, NC.
“Having moved from the northeast myself, I have always tried to make the transition for my customers easier,” says Eden Gilliam. “Most people have found our lifestyle and caring attitude helpful in getting settled into a new environment. We very rarely see people move back up north!”
Eden made the listing process of previous current home and purchase of my new home really easy. Always was up to date on the process of selling and buying.
We feel so very fortunate to have connected with Eden Gilliam when we began our search for property. Eden was very knowledgeable of the area and of the neighborhoods. She was willing to spend as much time as we needed showing us the different neighborhoods and model homes that we were interested in. She kept us very informed on the sales on homes and land in the area that we were interested in while we were living out of state. When it was time to make a choice she kept us well informed of the process and negotiated a great deal for us. We would highly recommend Eden.
Eden was the best agent my husband and I ever had the pleasure of working with, from the house hunting phase through the entire process right to closing and beyond, very honest and personable, we couldn’t have asked for a better agent and by the time we were done, we consider Eden a friend, thank you for a wonderful experience.
Eden will always be our realtor simply because she is THE BEST. My husband and I meet Eden 2010/2011 she help us find the builder for our first home we built in Waterford in May of 2014. Then in 2017 we decided to sell that exact same house and Eden was there with all her wisdom and expertise which she has a plethora of.
She does her homework and yours to. You never have to ask her for anything because by the time you think of it it’s either in you email or at your front door.
Oh, and our house SOLD in less than a month. How awesome is that!!
And now here we are 2 years later purchased another lot to build another home. And who do we call? Eden Gilliam!
THE WORLDS GREATEST REALTOR EVER!!
If you want the job done right choose Eden Gilliam.
My husband and I are forever grateful to Eden for always coming through for us and always doing everything with EXCELLENCE as she always do.

Eden did an excellent job in selling our house. She explained the listing agreement and sales contract in detail. We took her advice on many occasions and they all worked out to our advantage. During the month of September (2018) we received damage to our house from Hurricane Florence, while it was on the market. Eden was instrumental in helping us find contractors. We were at a disadvantage not being from the area. She was our eyes and ears during the repair process.
We would strongly recommend her for your real estate needs.
She went "above and beyond" as a realtor.
Eden displayed to us what Customer Service is all about.
Eden did a wonderful job selling our home recently in Magnolia Greens, Leland, NC. She was professional, persistent and highly effective at all levels.
I highly recommend Eden as a top notch sales professional in the local real estate market.
Thank you...John Tinghitella
Eden Gilliam IS a real estate professional! From the moment you give your listing to the final sale, Eden will have kept you completely informed and will work for you day and night handling any problems or making suggestions to improve your position in the sale. She has an unbelievable array of assets that give her a huge advantage over other real estate competitors. I highly recommend Eden as your sale agent if you are looking to buy or sale in the Wilmington, N.C. As soon as our home was put up for sale on MLS, Eden already had in mind some buyers who were looking for a home like ours. The second buyer who looked at our home had Eden write out a contract for our listing in less than a week. The rest is history. Eden maintained a tight settlement date completion. Frankly, we were overwhelmed by her professionalism. The buyer is happy, we are happy and the check is in the bank. We are very happy we chose Eden Gilliam as our agent!
Eden is indeed a remarkable, committed agent with invaluable experience that she shares with her clients. I have bought and sold many houses but never before worked with an agent that put my needs, as the client, as her highest priority, always.
I am more than happy with my transaction, with the way negotiations were professionally and masterfully handled, and, above all, after the sale, when her work was technically done, the follow up and continuing support with advice, guidance, and ideas.
I worked with several agents this year before finding Eden, and her experience and support has been the best. By far. Happy, happy client!
Eden is without a doubt the most professional, knowledgeable, efficient and considerate agent we've met and dealt with over the years. We've had other agents who were good but more like cheerleaders. Eden gave us an overview of the area to familiarize us with the neighborhoods so we could start to narrow our focus on what we wanted. Then she was patient as it took us a 1 1/2 years to sell our current home and find the right house. She is easy to talk to and was always ready to accommodate our needs. We were moving from out of town so she gladly met contractors and work people to let them in to bring in products or perform a service. I would highly recommend Eden for any real estate venture you want to persue!
Eden was very qualified and professional with my listing and we sold my house in 5 weeks! Eden made sure that I had everything ready to list my house, guided me about the price and encouraged me all the way. I highly recommend her to list anyone's home.
Eden is extremely knowledgeable about the area and was s great asset in helping us find and sell a home in the area. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking in the area.
Eden is the consummate realty professional, second to none. She went above and beyond the call of duty to help us decide whether to buy an existing home or build a new one. We saw numerous homes and lots in many developments and she answered our endless supply of questions. We chose to build and hence purchased a lot in an existing development that met our needs. She has provided us tons of useful, inside track information that only can be given by someone who is experienced and knowledgeable about the area. Her follow-up was timely, responsive and she always was in touch and kept the ball moving with friendly emails, texts and phone calls that were always appropriate.Don’t hesitate for a second to choose Eden. She NEVER phones it in! If I could give her 10 stars I would. Seriously. A great realtor is priceless and she is one of them!
I had a lot that I wanted to sell about 5 years ago and called Coldwell Banker as they were very visible in the area where the lot was located. By chance I was connected with Eden. She told me the prices had not recovered since the economic down turn and she suggested I wait. Each year, however, she would send me comps and still suggest I waited. Several months ago when I heard from her she said it might be a good time to list but it still might take time to sell. Each month during the listing, she sent me updates and feedback. I received an excellent cash offer with a 2 week contract and she recommended I accept it. She negotiated a great price. I have never had a realtor who has communicated so frequently, honestly, and made excellent recommendations based on her knowledge of the market. She was concerned that I receive a fair price for the value of the property. I highly recommend her!
Eden was very helpful. She knew what we were looking for and made every effort to meet our every need. She walked us through the process and answered all our questions.
Eden was truly a real estate "professional." My husband and I recently sold a lot with Eden. Throughout the entire process, Eden regularly kept us posted on the market conditions in the community and surrounding areas, including providing updates on current listings and recent sales. This was especially helpful since we do not live in the area. When several issues surfaced regarding maintenance needed with the lot, Eden proactively resolved them, and communicated the details with us. With her knowledge of the local area, along with her professionalism, expertise, and warm personality, she made our experience a very pleasurable one. If we purchase another lot/home in the area in the future, we will only seek to work with Eden again!
Eden not only sold my house fast she went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect! I had already left the area and she was stellar in making sure the house was cared for and ready for showings! Not being able to be there made me wonder just how well the upkeep would be with the contractors hired to do the work after my renter moved out and general maintenance to make sure the property looked nice. Eden went above and beyond to not only help me find reputable and great contractors, but to make sure things were being done when they were supposed to be done.
Also, it is only the 2nd house I have ever sold, so she made sure I understood the process and offered expert advice at every question! I highly recommend Eden to ANYONE who wants to have a great experience in real estate transactions!
Thank you Eden from the bottom of my heart!
Definitely glad we met Eden Gilliam. Professional, courteous, extremely knowledgeable of local area. Made herself available to us and keeping us up to date through the whole transaction. Eden would follow up making sure the process went smoothly and was complete. I would highly recommend Eden Gilliam.
Eden truly is very impressive, masterful, immediate, and excellent in every way. She is so kind, patient and caring. We are so pleased how she helped us every step of the way and reminded us what we needed to do. She is the best in real estate. We are so happy we chose her to find and purchase our new home.
I would highly recommend Eden. I have used Eden twice and I only wish I could have her handle my new location. From start to finish Eden was highly professional personable and walked me thru the process on both transactions
Eden has a broad knowledge of the market and extensive experience in sales within our development and local area. We found her extremely prompt in communicating interest and updates. She was very thorough and responsive to any questions or concerns. We would highly recommend her to represent you in selling your home.
Eden was very, very helpful in selling my townhouse. I live two hours away from the location of my townhouse and Eden took care of everything from start to finish. I did not have to worry about anything. Plus she sold the townhouse in one week for the asking price!
I would HIGHLY recommend Eden. I have purchased and sold my townhouse though Eden Gilliam.
Eden is incredible. She goes above and beyond. I had a contract in 2 weeks and closed quickly with minimal issues normally associated with closings. She helped me with the moving process which was greatly appreciated.
This is my second experience with Eden. She was the real estate person for the builder when I bought this home, and again, was so helpful, especially since I was moving from another state.
Eden does a remarkable job keeping the process of selling moving along and handling any difficulties that arise. it has been a pleasure to work with her and I highly recommend her as a broker to any buyer or seller.
Eden was great to work with thru this process. She was a constant PRO and was able to guide me and help me so I could move to Texas to be closer to my family here
Would highly recommend Eden to anyone but especially to newcomers to the area. She is very familiar with the various communities in the area and seems to have a wealth of information at her fingertips. What she doesn't know, she will immediately find out and promptly advise you. She pays close attention to details so there aren't any unpleasant surprises and she is a strong negotiator. She always goes the extra mile for her clients. We have now worked with Eden twice both as a buyer and most recently as a seller. Very satisfied,
Eden Gilliam was great to work with. We were coming from Raleigh area and did not know that much about Leland NC. She is very knowledgeable of the area and knows what she is doing. She made our buying experience a pleasure. I would highly recommend her if you are moving to Leland NC.
Richard and Leeann Bove
I have worked with many agents over the years and I have to say that Eden is the best by far. A true professional who puts her clients first. Eden sold us our last home and was our agent purchasing our latest home. I would highly recommend Eden and she is the only one I will work with in the future.
I have never had a realtor as helpful and knowledgeable as Eden we bought our house thru her and sold it thru her and because it sold so fast we need a place to lease and she help us find a place that was on par with our house. We believe she is the best realtor in Brunswick county. Al & Alfredo Monroe
Working with Eden was a wonderful experience. She was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous. There was no pressure put on us whatsoever. Since we only had a limited time over a weekend to view properties, Eden made herself available the entire weekend. She showed us more properties, homes, and models than we expected to see in such a short time. She made arrangements for viewing on the fly so that we could see as many homes and properties as possible. Eden knew everything about the neighborhoods and communities and was able to answer any questions that we had. Once we were back home, Eden was right on top of any questions or concerns that we had. She even guided us through all of the paperwork once we decided on a property. We would highly recommend Eden to anyone who is looking for a highly qualified real estate agent.
Eden was just plain fantastic from our initial meeting with her when we began to look for a home for my parents up until the closing. She was extremely attentive and never made us feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. At no time did we ever feel she was pushing towards a home she had listed but really listened to what we were looking for in this property and showed us everything in the area that met our criteria. In the end we selected a property that was her listing but it was because it was the best option for my parents and we loved the location and the potential to make some minor updates that will allow my parents to personalize just enough to make it be their home. Also, Eden always did her best to adjust her schedule to be available when both my husband and I and my parents were available to view homes which was very challenging in of itself. She is busy because she is great at what she does and loves what she does which showed in her execution of her role. We all were amazed at her knowledge about the area. From our perspective she seemed to know everything about the neighborhood that we were interested in finding a home to purchase. Her knowledge didn't end with just the details of the neighborhood but she actually knew and still interacted with the folks that live in the neighborhood which is Magnolia Greens in Leland NC. I am not going to say that everything went as smoothly as we had anticipated and hoped but our purchased situation was a little unique so that was the cause for the difficulties we encountered which had nothing to do with Eden or her level of service. Eden is just a genuine and honest individual that made us feel comfortable from our initial greeting. She was great with my parents with providing them with relevant information about the items that were of importance to them as retirees moving to a new area. We feel that not only did we find an excellent real estate professional but we made a friend in the process which isn't always the case considering the stressfulness of the whole home buying process. I don't typically write reviews that are this glowing or long but I wanted to convey to anyone reading this review that if you need a good agent/broker and you are looking for a home in her area of coverage she will certainly meet or in our case exceed our expectations.
My experience with Eden could not have better. For about two years, I contemplated selling my home and buying a townhouse. And during the entire time, Eden was very supportive. She kept me aware of available properties as well as the current market conditions in my neighborhood without ever making me feel that I needed to make a decision. In fact, she often said that I would know when the time was right. And so, Eden is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She is caring and patient and very attentive. Just this January, I decided that the time was right for me to sell my home. And there was never a doubt that Eden would be my listing agent. She is the best!
Eden is the best, most honest and expert real estate agent I have ever known. I have used her to buy and to sell several of my homes. She has always delivered and exceeded all expectations. She is also a very decent, caring human being and I am lucky to now say she is also my friend.
Eden's knowledge of the local area very beneficial and she was a pleasure to work with. Eden was always professional and responsive, and she provided us with up to date information as we investigated properties. We felt she took a personal interest in us which was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Eden to anyone searching for property in our area.
Eden worked extremely hard to show our property and find a qualified buyer. She communicated with us every step of the process.
We highly recommend Eden to anyone needing a real estate agent in this area.

Eden was a huge help to my mother when my father died unexpectedly. Because of her help with staging, pricing, and selling, the house sold very quickly. She is very knowledgeable about the Leland area and I would highly recommend her services.
I have known Eden for 4 hrs since my move to NC. I have recommended many friends to her and everyone was very satisfied with her help. I always went to her for any and all help for any real estate transaction. She was always willing to help and go,above and beyond. There was nothing she wouldn't do for me. I would recommend her to anyone I know for any help.
Eden is awesome. She is and expert in the market and is well connected. Her recommendations are always appreciated and she is very professional. She was even looking for prospective buyers of our house before we listed it. With her help, we sold our house in 4 days and had the closing in 30 day!
Eden is a fantastic realtor and I would highly recommend her. She is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate including closing figures and neighborhoods. She treated me like one of the family and I loved working with her. No pressure and lots and lots of information.
There were no unexpected surprises at closing, everything went smoothly.
Eden was extremely helpful in every phase of our relocation to Leland, NC to be near our children and grandchildren. She showed us houses that were on the market, and once we decided to build a new home, helped us find a lot and showed us model homes. We found the home builder and home we wanted with her help. She also found us a very nice rental to live in while our house was being built. She gave us recommendations on storage facilities, insurance companies, and more. Her knowledge of the Leland area and homes and home builders in the area is amazing. If you are relocating to Leland, I highly recommend you contact Eden Gilliam to help you find that perfect home!
We have known Eden Gilliam for many years. She has so much knowledge and experience. Eden made the selling of our property such an easy process. We completely trust her and her expertise, and would highly recommend her.
The purchase of our North Carolina home was a true pleasure thanks to Eden's friendly caring manner, great customer service skills, and in-depth real estate knowledge. Because we live out of state, Eden handled everything for us and it was smooth sailing from start to finish. She definitely has her finger on the pulse of the Leland NC real estate market which gave us confidence in making this purchase. We really appreciated Eden's responsiveness and attention to details. It is without any hesitation that we highly recommend Eden to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Eden was outstanding and pleasurable to work with! The first time we met her we felt very comfortable with her.

Most importantly, Eden was very trustworthy and we knew that we were always in good hands. We would highly recommend her to anyone - she is the best!
Eden is a real pro and always goes the extra mile to help you in all of your real estate needs. We have used her twice now and would not even consider going with another realtor. She helped us find the prefect lot and hooked us up with a builder that was awesome.
Eden has tons of contacts and through them she manages to make purchasing and selling a new home a smooth process.
She makes house hunting fun and the contract and closing process stress free.
Eden successfully listed and sold my town home under unusual and changing market conditions. Throughout the selling process her extensive market knowledge, professionalism, wise counsel and graceful support were most valued and appreciated. Her prompt responsiveness, attention to detail and, foremost, her profound integrity made for a virtually seamless transaction.
Eden has been so helpful in our search for a new property. She has worked with us patiently, professionally and has always put our best interests highest on her list. She is kind, very hard working and loves what she does. I would recommend her to anyone looking for real estate anywhere.
