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.

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!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Wilmington?
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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Wilmington?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

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 Wilmington 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.
