Brett's family has called the Wilmington area home since the 1700's, forging a family tradition nearly three centuries strong. Throughout his lifetime, Brett has been presented with many opportunities elsewhere, but has always remained loyal to this wonderful coastal community. "All my business decisions have been based on my hometown," Brett says. "My family is here. I love the beaches, and my family's heritage is here. I can't imagine anything that could ever take me away from this area."

Wilmington's small town charm tends to easily captivate people that way. Brett's earliest memories are those of splashing in the water at his grandparents' beach house. To this day, he and his wife and two daughters can be found at Brett's parents home every Friday night for a family cook out. With family ties this strong to the community, nothing could ever lure Brett away from Wilmington. After graduating from college (UNC Wilmington, of course), Brett was a fast-rising employee of a major international bank. When presented with the opportunity for a promotion requiring a move to another state, Brett assessed his priorities and kindly replied, "No thanks."

This scenario has played itself out several times and in each instance, his answer has been the same. "Raising my family here means more to me than any job ever could," Brett says with his friendly Southern smile. It should come as no surprise then, that Brett's solution to this dilemma was to tie his business career to the community he's so passionate about.

As one of the Greater Wilmington area's leading real estate professionals, Brett's lifetime of local knowledge lends him the insight to help make your home buying or selling goals a reality. Combined with his background in mortgage banking and his friendly, low pressure approach to the business, you'll see why Brett has become widely known as Wilmington's Hometown Resource.

Perhaps more important than his local knowledge or experience is Brett's ability to relate to his clients' needs. As a father, a Wilmington native and a man appreciative of the rich history and unlimited potential of this area, Brett brings a genuine, caring approach to each of his clients. "I love this area and it's people," he says. "I also love introducing people from out of town to our little corner of the world. I truly believe life is different here from anywhere else."

When the time comes for your next move, or if you'd like to explore the opportunities which await you in Wilmington, rely on Wilmington's Hometown Resource for all your real estate needs.

Brett and his team do top notch work. From walkthrough to final sale, Brett and his associates were working for me. This is the second time using Brett and he did a great job of getting us the best price. You will not be disappointed!

I hired Brett to sell my house and he helped me me get it under contract within the first two weeks. Brett and his team provide the necessary infrastructure to get the job done.

I have used Brett Knowles services to sell a house several years ago and told my family about the experience. Returning to Wilmington Brett helped me purchase a home, helped my daughter and son-in-law sell and purchase a home and helped my son-in-law brother to sell and purchase a home. This all happened in about six weeks because of our need and the relentlessly high standard that Brett Knowles set for himself personally and professionally as well as the team he employs. He is personable and a very skilled negotiator and will not hesitate to advocate for his client in their best interests. This is how you build a lasting business. The foundation has to be honest and its leader attending to integrity with out exception. People just have no reason for not working with Brett and that is what I said when he completed his presentation at our first meeting. "I can't think of one reason for not working with your company. So what is the next step?" I wish Brett and his company continued successs and many blessings. Phylliss Reynolds
