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.

Heather Smith
Keller Williams Realty
About Heather

I started my Real Estate career at age 25 with a local builder in the Wilmington area. I gained experience in several different areas including land acquisition, project management, new home sales and transaction coordination. It didn’t take long for me to see that real estate was where I was meant to be. My innate desire to grow as an entrepreneur comes from my family. I attribute this to my parents’ and grandparents’, ability to grow large, successful companies with innovative and creative thinking. A lot of drive, hustle and adaptability fueled me to always stay focused and accept any challenge I’m faced within this industry. Fast forward a couple of years to when the market tanked, the real estate industry stopped and I had a new baby at home. I had built my business on open houses, sphere, door knocking and anything else that included boots on the ground. II had to adapt and shift my business plan to incorporate short sales. This gave me access and exposure and I started building relationships with investors and asset managers. I started a team in 2017. Using my experience as a real estate coach helped me craft systems around efficiency. Shifting these systems into automation supports our team and gives them time (leverage) to focus on their clients and their businesses. I now run a successful real estate team in North Carolina, am a national real estate coach, have relationships with REO asset managers and travel nationally to bring back top ideas, systems and knowledge to my team. My passion for coaching runs deep and I love to share my experiences that can help others find their purpose and grow themselves as leaders. I continue to support agents on and off my team throughout the nation grow their businesses. I had a ton of support as I was building mine and I enjoy being able to give that back. I want to help others catapult their businesses and lives so they can achieve their goals even faster.

Joel Sheesley
Bluecoast Realty Corporation
About Joel

Originally from Pennsylvania, I relocated to North Carolina with my family in the late 1970’s. Growing up in a small town outside of Winston-Salem, I had a great childhood, lots of friends and always busy. Generally speaking, I liked living in the Piedmont, but I always longed for the coast. A once-a-year beach vacation just wasn’t enough, and after many weekend trips to visit my older brother attending UNC Wilmington, I soon realized that this is where I, too, wanted to live. Wilmington had everything I wanted in a place to call home…a charming historic downtown set against the backdrop of the Cape Fear Riverfront; the white sandy beaches peppered with smiling faces of all ages; a small town feel, but with all the dining, shopping, entertainment and recreation options one could want; a climate conducive to outdoor activities throughout most of the year, and the friendliest mix of people you could ever hope to meet. During my college years at UNCW, I worked alongside my brother in his business that he started from scratch in the early 1990’s. It is a moving and storage business, but specializes in a "white glove" handling service offered to interior decorators and designers. The many relationships formed with this clientele, as well as my involvement with their work, created a love for design and style that I find useful in my business today, especially while staging homes for sale. After getting my degree in 1998, I partnered with my mother (an established entrepreneur in Winston-Salem) and 2 older brothers (both independent business owners too), to form an import company specializing in high-end furnishings and accessories. We were fortunate enough to visit and work directly with several factories in the Philippines and Mexico. It was an exciting opportunity to travel and learn a new business. It also turned out to be my first opportunity to gain professional experience in sales. I quickly learned that good customer service, hard earned trust, and effective communication were very important to me and my career. Just as important, in fact, as the product line I was selling. Since transferring into Real Estate, I‘ve found those same qualities and characteristics to be as important as ever. I am my business and my service is my product line. As realtors, we all have the same land and the same homes to offer, but it is our service that differentiates us. I pride myself in partnering with my clients to achieve a common goal, whether buying or selling. It’s important for me to earn a client’s trust, using my resources at hand, market knowledge, expertise, and most importantly, listening to my client, while providing great customer service along the way. If you are looking for your dream home, or just your next home; If you are looking to get your home sold for the most amount of money possible, or to get it sold as quickly as possible; If you are looking to invest in real estate, whether a seasoned pro, or a first-timer; If you are having trouble and looking to understand your options, including understanding short sales and foreclosures; get yourself a partner who can work with you through these important financial decisions. I take pride in my service, and I look forward to working with you!
