WILMINGTON, NC – Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage recently opened a new, 18,000 square foot office in a newly constructed, 2-story office building at 110 Dungannon Blvd, Suite 100 in Wilmington. The new office, an anchor tenant for the new Dungannon Village at Autumn Hall, acts as a central hub of operations for the firm’s network of 12 offices located from South Brunswick to Jacksonville. Dungannon Village is a mixed-used development that acts as the entry to Autumn Hall's residential neighborhood off of Eastwood Road.
Sea Coast Advantage occupies more than half of the 1st floor of 110 Dungannon Blvd and the entire 2nd floor. Alex Paen
and Sherri Pickard
are Managing Brokers of the Wilmington office and approximately 170 Sea Coast Advantage agents and 40 support staff are now working from this location. Administrative functions that support all of the Sea Coast Advantage offices are housed in the new Wilmington office, including IT
, accounting and marketing. In addition, the new office houses the Sea Coast Real Estate Academy
, a real estate school that offers pre-licensing, post-licensing and continuing education courses for prospective and existing agents from any firm, and the Success Center, a training program specifically for Sea Coast Advantage agents
“The Wilmington real estate market is very active right now and this location is perfectly located for both our agents and our clients,” said Tim Milam
, president of Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage. “The office is just off of Eastwood Road, so we have great visibility and it’s very convenient to just about everywhere. We’re within minutes of the beaches, downtown, Midtown and Mayfaire. The office design is also a great fit for our company culture – it’s bright and welcoming and has a warm coastal theme that runs throughout the space. We’re very proud to welcome our clients into this office.”
The Wilmington office is the second new office that Sea Coast Advantage has opened this year. In March, Sea Coast opened a new Midtown location
at 2516 Independence Blvd at Barclay Commons. And according to Milam, Sea Coast plans to open another new office -- its 13th location -- in a new market by early to mid-July.
In addition to its location, the Dungannon Blvd office offers clients the convenience of one-stop shopping for all things real estate. Alpha Mortgage
, Don Bullard Insurance
and Herrington Classic Homes
, a builder of custom and semi-custom homes throughout Greater Wilmington, will soon join Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage as tenants in the building. The one non-real estate tenant at 110 Dungannon Blvd is Drift Coffee, a coffee shop and café that plans to open in August.
The new office houses a combination of flex space, individual offices and cubicles to accommodate the various work styles and needs of Sea Coast Advantage agents. The first floor offers eight conference rooms for agents to meet privately with clients, which is twice as many as the previous office. The office also has considerably more flex space, which offers agents in transit a semi-private work environment to plug in, make calls and have easy access to support services such as copiers, scanners and fax machines. All Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage offices are set up with the same systems and office equipment to ensure that agents from any of the firm’s 12 locations
can drop by at any time to conduct business.
“Our mission is to help buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals by providing extraordinary customer service, and the convenience of our two new offices at Autumn Hall and Midtown go a long way to helping us better achieve that mission.”
