WILMINGTON NC – Herrington Classic Homes, a premier new home builder owned and operated by husband and wife team Craig and Mary Johnson, has hired Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage to market its new home communities in the Greater Wilmington area. Among many others, these communities include River Bluffs in Castle Hayne and Autumn Hall and Fortune Place in Wilmington.
Established in the Washington DC metro area in 1995, Herrington Homes specializes in custom homes and semi-custom homes with custom quality finishes such as 10’ ceilings and 2” x 6” exterior wall construction. Herrington Homes relocated the business to the Wilmington market in 2008 and met with great success with its Cottage Collection of homes built in the popular Seagrove community at Carolina Beach. Today, Herrington is a member of the exclusive builder teams at Autumn Hall, a mixed-use development and new home community just 1.5 miles from Wrightsville Beach; and River Bluffs, a new home community, marina and mixed-use development overlooing the Cape Fear River in Castle Hayne.
“Herrington Homes is an exemplary builder and we’re honored to be aligned with a firm with our same commitment to quality and customer service,” said Tim Milam, President of Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage. “Our agents have an excellent track record in new home sales and we understand the unique needs of the new home market. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Herrington Homes.”
Mary Johnson, co-owner of Herrington Homes, is the interior design visionary for the firm, while Craig Johnson manages all aspects of the building process. As a licensed REALTOR® since 1994, Mary also handles sales and marketing for the firm and works closely with Aaron Favolise, Herrington Homes sales manager. Favolise has been a licensed REALTOR® since 2012, and together with Mary, they have recently formed a new sales team at Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage entitled “Team Herrington.”
“Herrington Homes has an excellent reputation for custom homes, but we also create semi-custom homes that start in the low 300’s, such as those we’re now building at Fortune Place near Monkey Junction,” said Favolise. “We selected Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage because of their dedication to customer service and their expertise in the new home marketplace. They are one of the best at understanding new home construction.”
Fortune Place is a master-planned new home community located in Midtown, just 15 minutes from the beaches, historic downtown Wilmington, and the shops and restaurants at The Pointe at Barclay. Community amenities include a pool, clubhouse, walking trails and extensively landscaped grounds. Buyers can choose from 10 floor plans ranging from 1,812 to 3,370 square feet and can customize their home to best suit their needs. The on-site model and sales office is open for tours Monday, Wednesday-Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
