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. Whether you're looking to buy or sell, there's not a better choice than Brett Knowles. Call him today to schedule a free, no-obligation private consultation. You'll be glad you did!

I highly recommend Brett Knowles. He and his team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. The listing process was quick and painless and the photos of the house they created for the listing were beautiful. We received multiple, high quality offers and sold the house quickly. Brett and his team were always very responsive, professional, and pleasant to deal with. We couldn't have been happier.

Brett has been in the business a long time and brings a good deal of market knowledge to the table. I also feel like he did a great job marketing our home. Lynne in his office is also very helpful and pleasant to work with!

I have had the pleasure of being represented by Brett Knowles and his group for two home sales and a purchase as well.
I can tell you that Brett and his staff are highly recommended. I have used other agents in the past and they pale in comparison to Brett and some of the awesome team that I dealt with (Lynne, Lisa) on my most recent sale and purchase. They go above and beyond and each and every request, change of plans, etc. that I threw at them they took in stride and with utmost efficiency. I felt like family with all of them and was never hesitant to ask anything of them. Makes for a much smoother process having been through the home buying/selling experience numerous times. They are a well oiled, friendly and wonderfully accommodating group to work with especially in the high stress process of selling and buying a home.
I would positively say I would never consider using anyone else for my real estate needs should the situation arise again even though I am in high hopes this is my \u201Cforever home\u201D!
