I am an assistant here at The G-Slow Team who will be relocating to the Wilmington area. We have already purchased a home there and I can highly recommend Sandy Monroe as an agent. He grew up and has always lived in Wilmington.
He went above and beyond for us as we pretty much purchased sight unseen from here in Illinois. He previewed real estate for us, was very responsive to all questions, he found us a great home inspector as well as someone to assist with financing and the long distance closing.
In addition, he has worked with and knows many of the builders in the area so if you are looking for a newer build....he will steer you in the right direction. I just can't say enough good about him. If you don't have a realtor already, give him a call.
Here is his contact info:
