Keller Williams Realty
About Hank

Originally from Somerville, NJ I moved to the piedmont area of North Carolina in 1980 with my parents. After working on a movie in Wilmington, NC I fell in love with the coast and knew I had to be here. I worked in the film industry for 10 years as an actor and crew member. I attribute my work ethics to an industry that inspires hard work, dedication and a drive to accomplish the impossible. I moved to the Southport area in 2005 with my family. I dabbled in real estate investments for years before I decided to make it my career. I have worked with the full complement of buyers and sellers ranging from first time homeowners to the savvy investors. My approach is simple. Listen to my client, know the market and find the best solution to accomplish their goals. If you are looking to locate to the area I applaud your decision. The area is filled with beautiful landscapes and neighbors that are friendly and welcoming. I would love to assist you in finding the perfect home. If you are leaving, I am sorry to see you go and will do everything possible to help you sell your home for the best price. Put my experience to work for you and I am sure you will be glad you did.

After achieving a marketing degree from the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Nolan worked as a Marketing Consultant for Black & Decker/DeWalt.

Dawn Berard
Sold Buy the Sea Realty
About Dawn

Thank you for visiting my website. I am a hardworking, dedicated real estate professional with the tools, resources and network to assist you in all of your real estate needs. From buying a home to building your dream home, to the perfect piece of land, to the business you have always wanted to own (or sell). I work with over 20 builders with new spec homes, custom builds and new developments. Additionally, I am familiar with Estates, Foreclosures, Short Sales and Lease/Purchases. I am committed to your satisfaction every step of the way. I began my real estate career as a Paralegal. With over 20 years of client service experience and a dedication and commitment to always follow up, uncover all the facts, and get the best price for you, I will make it work… Whatever "it" may be for you... I strive to exceed your expectations every day with every client. I guarantee it! As a former Paralegal reading the fine print is second nature for me. I interviewed with all the “ big” companies in the area and read the “rules” of how I was required to interact with clients and what I had to charge, etc… and found that I wanted to be more than a number and wanted the freedom to work outside the box for all my clients. Since beginning my real estate career I have consistently been a multi-million dollar producer. In addition, I am an approved Instructor for the North Carolina Real Estate Commission. With this designation, I am always kept apprised of current hot topics, legal issues and rule changes. In 2011 we opened Sold Buy the Sea Realty. As a Broker/Owner this is my career and my passion. I will do whatever it takes to make your experience positive as a buyer, seller or agent with our company. I am a single mother with two wonderful children, two horses, one cat, and two dogs. I love working with people, 4 wheeling on the beach, playing in our boat, living on the coast in general! I moved to Wilmington from Massachusetts 15 years ago and have never looked back. Trading the snow shovel for a beach pail was the best decision I ever made. I understand the stress and uncertainty of relocation and will make your move exciting and seamless. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, to request a relocation package, a list of foreclosures, to view a property or just to say hello.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Oak Island?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Oak Island?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Oak Island to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Oak Island is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
