I became a full time Real Estate Broker in 2005 after a career as a PGA Golf Professional and General Manager of Resorts and Country Clubs. I have listed and sold in all price points up to and over $2 million. I specialize in New Construction, all buyers and sellers in the $150,000 - $700,000 range, Golf Communities, and Development. Although I utilize the most powerful marketing tools and technological innovations that are so crucial to the real estate market, I strive to remember the time tested basics of hard work and humility. As an agent, and in life, I am committed to genuinely serving my clients by putting their interest before profit and to have a positive influence on all with whom I come in contact. My love for Wilmington, my desire to help people find a place to call home, and my history of success in the Real Estate business may make me the perfect Broker to help you in your home search. 

After years in the golf business, I was hoping to start a new career that still allowed me to use my talents and passions, including working with and helping people. After becoming an investor in speculative homes in the Pinehurst/Southern Pines region of North Carolina, seeing these properties move at a fair pace, and having others ask me to do this for them, I decided that Real Estate would be the perfect outlet for my skills and passions. This passion for real estate drove me to be the top producing broker at my last firm from 2010 - 2014 and in 2014 achieved their highest sales award level for being the No.1 broker in the region. 

Although we lived in Pinehurst for many years, my wife, Jane, and I always considered Wilmington home. In 2014 we made the move back to this beautiful city and I have since made it my mission to help others find a place to live that helps them fall as in love with this place as we are. What I love most about the Wilmington area is that it is truly about lifestyle and quality of life. The friendly atmosphere combined with the luxuries of beaches, golf, all imaginable water activities, and a beautiful historic river front make Wilmington uniquely have a small town feel while living like a large city. I am blessed to take advantage of all Wilmington has to offer not only through my real estate work, but also outside of the office through my church, family, and outdoor activities including fishing, paddling, surfing, enjoying the beach, and camping. "EXCELLENCE | EXPERIENCE | EXPERTISE"

Thank you, Wink! You made the process so smooth and easy we were able to just go along and enjoy it! You're the best!

Absolutely a wonderful experience! We were relocating from out of state, and Wink went above and beyond any expectations we had. He was willing to check on the status of our home any time we asked. He provided weekly pictures of the progress of the new build. He was on top of everything and was able to remedy any concerns we had with the builder. I highly recommend Wink for all your real estate needs
