I found Brett on Zillow.com and it said that he was the best in Wilmington. Although we never met face to face, he kept me up to date on everything happening on the sale of my property.

-Mr. & Mrs. James McFarland

We have relocated a number of times & this was the least stressful of any we have made. We have had some nightmares with real estate agents. We have relocated several times and have had agents who were not only not knowledgeable but did not seem to have our best interests in mind. We have had agents who were even rude. Brett Knowles’ office had great knowledge of any questions we had and were always accessible to us. Amanda went above and beyond. Thank you!- Sandra Queen

Everything went great and we would not look anywhere else if we need a real estate company in the future! –Betsy Keller

I would enthusiastically recommend Brett and Coldwell Banker to my friends and family. –Bryan Riggsbee

Brett Knowles is an extremely good marketing agent. We were thrilled with his presentation of a 30 year-old home and the advertising coverage the home received.

In addition to Brett Knowles’ handling the sale of our house in a very professional manner, his assistant, Heather Thompson, was most helpful. – Robert Kozik

Brett’s excellent information on the internet led us to contact him. His knowledge and helpfulness on the phone encouraged us to make him our primary contact when we visited Wilmington.

Brett told me what he thought my house was worth and why, and stuck to his assessment even though it took eight months of persistence and consistent showings, open houses, and advertising through multiple venues. Brett explained that it was a tough market and that my home was priced correctly. He never pressured us to lower the price, in fact, he encouraged us not to. He knows the business well and has earned my trust. He bent over backwards to help our negotiations conclude in a sale. We came close and he closed the deal! We were glad to use Brett to represent us in finding and building our new home as well. Thanks Brett!! – Mark and Lori Seal

Ann and I wish to thank you and your assistant, Heather, for a very pleasant experience in recently selling our home. You both were most attentive and courteous.

Brett was excellent at keeping me informed of the activity of the house, when it was shown, how it was being advertised, and any feedback.

Brett- I want you to know how much I appreciate everything you and your staff did during the process of selling my home. After my first and very disappointing experience with another real estate agent in town, you restored my faith in the real estate industry. First, the presentation you made of my home during our initial meeting was very professional. Second, I could sense your dedication to selling my home. Third, I knew my home would get all the possible exposure in the market necessary to sell it in a timely manner. In addition, your assistant, Heather Thompson, is a tremendous asset to your team. She was always available to address any questions or concerns I had. Also, she always kept me informed as to what was happening during the selling and closing processes. Please let her know how much she is appreciated. Thank you for a very positive experience in the selling of my home. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who is in need of a real estate agent. A heartfelt thank you! - Ray Strickland

I was quite surprised and naturally pleased with the property being sold so quickly, given the current economic slowdown and time of year. Being a widow, I was especially grateful for the extra assistance I was given. – Mrs. Dolores Kirk

Wonderful experience for two, nervous first-time homebuyers. We didn’t give up after our first deal fell through because of a mortgage misquote from the mortgage company. Brett worked all day December 27th to make sure the deal would go through fro the closing on December 28th (problem with the seller). He was always there to answer any questions! – Becky Kreiger-Moore

Brett was straightforward with us from first contact. He and your company made the selling of our house speedy, (amazingly so), painless and convenient. – Kathy Karriker

Brett Knowles was exceptionally helpful in marketing and selling our house and in assisting us in finding another home. Heather Thompson was very professional in handling the arrangements for showing our house. –Norman Kaylor

Brett was very professional in every aspect of the sale. I would, without a doubt, refer anyone in the market to sell or purchase a home to Brett. Thank you so much for selling my home! – Mike Musselwhite

I would rate my overall purchase an A ! This is for two reasons; Brett Knowles and Heather Thompson! They were extremely professional and helpful in every way! The home I purchased was approximately 20 years old, and for this reason, there were many things to iron out in the process. I do not know if this transaction would have taken place without them. I am forever grateful to Heather and Brett for their commitment to my wife and me in obtaining our new house. Sea Coast Realty has a great team with these two! Thanks - Ed Williams

Very good experience! – William Boswell

Brett Knowles and his assistant, Heather Thompson, were very easy to work with. They made things work very smoothly in the sale of my house. – Charles E. Scruggs

Brett was more than helpful throughout the entire process. I was very impressed with his knowledge, sincerity, honesty and diligence. He even came over to pick up documents on a Saturday after he had purchased some mulch for his landscaping. Very impressive! Thanks Brett! – Josh Baldwin

Brett got the job done…we were glad to get the house sold. We would use Brett’s services again. – Bob and Trish Buerger

Brett has been great throughout the process. – Mike and Aime Gianooukos

Every turn we made was right with the help of Brett. – Aaron Jackson

Love our new home. Like the way Brett made the deal work with the seller and loan company. He made it happen! – Greg Horne

Due to business commitments, our daughter was not able to be present during the selection, negotiating, and closing processes, which were required to purchase her new home in the Wilmington area. The fact that we were required to act in her behalf created a unique situation for Brett Knowles, his assistant Heather Thompson, and his office staff. All of these representatives responded in a totally professional and competent manner to provide us with the maximum assistance in completing our purchase. Their friendly, courteous, positive, and timely reactions to our special requirements made us right at home in an unfamiliar environment. We were made to feel comfortable and well represented from the beginning to the end of our relationship with Mr. Knowles and his entire organization. We highly recommend Mr. Knowles and his company to anyone wanting real estate assistance from an exceptionally talented, hardworking agent who possesses not only noteworthy professional abilities, but also an outstanding knowledge of the city and a genuine love for the Wilmington community. – Tom and Lou Hancock

We have nothing but the highest praise for Brett Knowles. We had no thoughts of listing our home with any other real estate company because we knew Coldwell Banker Sea Coast was the best, and Brett would work diligently to get our home sold. That he did! In one week he had a buyer! We would recommend Brett Knowles if anyone has a home or property they want sold, not just listed on the market. – Donna and Wilbur Arnette

Brett took great initiative in getting my condo as much exposure as possible. It was imperative that it sell quickly. Brett wasted no time. After being listed with another realtor for 6 months without an offer, Brett produced 2 offers in one day, after only having the listing for a month. Less than four weeks later, the cash was in my hand! Brett was also very easy to work with, and I highly recommend him to anyone. – Dirk Smith

Brett listened to what we had to say. We had previously looked at property through other agents. Brett did not waste my time. I think he is an excellent agent! – Lynda Olle

Both my wife & I feel very fortunate to have reached Brett Knowles. We selected Coldwell Banker from the yellow pages, and just happened to find Brett on duty. We were pleased with the job and feel like we have a friend in NC. – Richard Chapman

It was a pleasure working with Brett Knowles and Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable on the entire area. He went above and beyond the “call of duty” by working hard while I was here and overseas, even calling me a number of times overseas to close on the house. I felt fortunate to have found such a great agent! Thanks! – Diana Walls

Brett was knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate and treated our transaction like it was his own. We could not have found a better Realtor! – Tonya Nesselroade

Brett’s selling and buying style is very good. I would recommend him to other friends.-Mike Olle

Kathy and I would like to thank you for helping in selling our house. Being 2,500 miles away in Utah and never having met you, we put a lot of trust in you and were not disappointed. You kept us well informed and did an excellent job of finding potential buyers; four offers in six months is quite a bit better than the single offer in nine months delivered by one of your Wilmington competitors. – Peter Kalish

I just wanted to add my thanks, as well. It was refreshing to be dealt with as an intelligent partner throughout the process, instead of an added housewife who couldn’t do anything without her husband. You were terrific about keeping me informed and soothing my fraying nerves across the country. Best wishes. – Kathy Kalish

I’m so impressed with Brett’s professionalism and ability to meet my needs and answer my questions. He made it easy for me. That is what all homeowners’ desire. Thank you Brett! – Leslie Jarrell

Working with Brett was a pleasure. He gave us researched and detailed information to set our selling price. He was honest about any improvements that would add value and desirability to our home. Obviously, both things worked since we were under contract within 2 weeks at 99% of our list price! – Ginny Ehemann

We are really enjoying our new house. Thanks for everything you did for us. We really appreciate everything! – Kurt, Les, Eli, and Ethan Ellis

Robert and I wanted to thank you for spending so much time with us on the new house; for finding it, for working on it so quickly and for being wonderful in general! Thank you so very much for helping us make such a big step in our lives! – Jennifer Loper

My wife and I were very impressed with Brett’s concern for our interest in purchasing our current house and when acting as a dual agent when selling our old house. Thanks so much Brett! – JD and Karen Loughlin

I’d like to thank you for all your assistance with buying our home in Wilmington. It was hard coming to a totally new city and picking some place to live in three days.

We will certainly refer you to anyone we know that moving in to the area. – Martin and Angela Burns

This house was purchased four years ago as rental property. Brett was the selling agent and he compiled a list of homes that met our requirements, showed them and completed the sale. He was most helpful. When we decided to sell, we called Brett. He gave us his recommendations for repairs and upgrades. We accomplished these and he reviewed the property, listed it in the correct price range, and sold it in six days! Way to go Brett!!-Susie Brigman

Brett did a great job. We appreciate his efforts. – Bob and Trish Buerger

Felt as if I were treated as a family member by Brett and the whole Sea Coast group.-Kevin Buchter

Brett Knowles made the process of buying a new condo so easy for my wife and I. You can really sense how much Brett cares about you and we consider him a friend. – Jim and Sheila Whitmeyer

Overall service was very good. Very knowledgeable of market and pricing. Provided good guidance. – John and Caroline Gillick

Judy was the consummate professional throughout our experience. In fact, we worked with Judy two times prior to the time we purchased our home, in ‘05 and ’08 and each time we were treated by her as a client with full intentions of buying a home, although she was well aware that we were simply confirming our belief that Wilmington was indeed the place we wanted to retire to and then that Landfall was the neighborhood we would want to live. – Don and Trish Boyd

Thank you so much for all that you have done for us. Your team made the purchasing experience much easier than previous homes that I have purchased back in Clinton. Your group will be highly recommended by me. You’re an awesome group. – Craig Mann

Brett and Alisha were the best team I have worked with in real estate! – William and Linda Hughes

Brett and Alisha were extremely helpful, went out of their way to get us needed information and made the process easy for us. - Casey and Susan Salem

Brett and Alisha showed their knowledge and experience in making our purchase painless and comfortable. – Dale and Joann Finch

Brett was very patient in my home buying process. He showed me so many houses and never pushed me to a quick decision. – Darcy Rezac

Brett Knowles was my choice among the 3 agents (different companies) I interviewed. His initial positive impression and attention to detail were the reasons I chose him. This was true during the whole sales time. Andra Browning, Brett’s assistant, was meticulous and always helpful. Selling my home in 8 months in this market demonstrates Brett’s ability and my home was truly custom and so it needed a discriminating marketing approach. – Katherine Bick

Brett Knowles and Andra Browning were very professional and encouraging. Ivan and I were absolutely pleased with our sales agent and staff! – Ivan and Helene Winograd

Brett Knowles was fantastic and made the process convenient and smooth.-Ellen Klaenhammer

I am very pleased with Brett and Andra. They were very helpful because this was a stressful real estate transaction with selling my parent’s house and purchasing a new one for them. That is why I picked Brett and his team because I was confident they would do the best job! I will always recommend Coldwell Banker! Ya’ll have a great team!-Mary Jefferies

We really liked working with Brett and his support staff. Most importantly he helped get our house sold in this very tough market. We are grateful for that. We will absolutely use Brett in our future housing needs and will refer him to friends as well. Thank you Brett and your team! – Rajiv Kaul

I applaud you for that as well as for selling my house in record time for these times. All the very best to you and many thanks to Andra for her attention to details. Best regards.-Katherine Bick

Brett and Amy were very good in helping us decide where we wanted to be and then finding the right property for us, which we love! – Paul and Laura Stein

Brett and Amy represented us extremely well in working with all parties to gain a most favorable selling price and dealing with some usual problems such as an old buried oil tank. All issues were resolved to keep the process on track. We are very satisfied with the process and the property. – Jerry and Linda Fipps

I am very happy with the outcome of the selling of my Mom and Dad’s home. Everything and everyone worked for me to get the best price for what we had. Thank you. – Elizabeth Coleman

I was very pleased with Amy Browning. She made the contacts needed for inspections and closing! Very satisfied! Thank you Brett - Pam Vinson

Thanks so much for all that you did to sell our home. We were very happy with the final results. We had a very good experience working with Brett and his team. Amy was a delight and extremely helpful. She helped take away our fears, no matter how big or small. You have a super team, especially Amy who really went above and beyond. You are very fortunate to have her working for you. Overall, an excellent experience and we would highly recommend Brett and his team. Again, thanks for everything. If any of our friends in Olde Point decide to sell their home, we will definitely recommend you. – Barbara and Joe Carnazza

Brett Knowles and his team were both professional & courteous. They cared for our every sales need and took the time to answer our questions and addressed our concerns. We found them to be candid & honest in every way. We would gladly use them again and recommend them without hesitation. – Keith Hollar

Very friendly, knowledgeable people. This was our first home purchase and your people made it an enjoyable experience. Thanks for all you have done for us, we could not have asked for more. Any referrals we find will be sent your way. Thanks again. – Wing Li and Jason Zilewicz

How can I be disappointed? Sold in 10 days. – Donis and Alex Smith

Selling a home with the current market conditions, Brett Knowles researched and provided us documents that we needed to make an information decision concerning the pricing of our home and choice to follow through with the sale. He demonstrated professionalism as well as that “down home” feeling that you get when you just ran into an old friend. We have seen his advertisements and progress throughout the years and when it was time to choose an agent, I had no doubt who to select. Great job to Brett Knowles and Amy Browning for her consistent updates during this process! – Anthony and Angie Chicelli

Extremely well pleased. Amy/Brett went way above what they had to. – David LeVan

Brett: Mandy and I sincerely appreciate your help with our recent purchase. You and your staff did a wonderful job assisting us and we could not have had a better experience. Thank you! – Charlie and Mandy Mattox

Brett: Thank you and your team for navigating the process for us. This experience was new to Greg and I and I appreciate your efforts to make this process seamless. Thanks – Amber Burnett

Excellent experience – Jeff DuBose

Great experience – Smooth process despite first buyer backing out. Thanks! - Greg Burnett

Brett, Jeff and I appreciate all your hard work in getting the house ready to sell and sold. We could not have done it without you and Amy. You were both a pleasure to work with. Thank you! Sincerely, Jeff and Jane

Brett and his team have done a good job for us consistently. I always feel like matters were in safe hands. – Nancy Pierce

We just want to thank you for helping us to find our first home! We can’t thank you enough for making this a smooth process for us! - Christina Bauman and Anass Zourgani

Brett is a professional! Sold three different types of properties for us since 2002 and each time we received exemplary service – and quick sales! - Don and Lois Steele

Brett, I am very surprised at the personal attention I have received from you, please know it is much appreciated!! Thank you again for all your assistance, your number will be the first one I call. – Erin Schraeder

Prior to signing on with Brett Knowles, for 6 months we contracted another real estate company to list our home. I was very disappointed in the amount of showings from the other real estate company. In 6 months we had approx 25 showings and only 2 were the other real estate company and none were from our listing agent. As a previous owner of a sales agency the first thing I would have noticed that my sales agents were not showing one of our clients. I complained early on to our listing agent and let him know if things would not improve I would make a change. Here are some of the superior things Brett Knowles provides that the other real estate company did not;

*Brett makes a marketing binder left in the house that provides specific features of the home. This is very important to show the buyers since as you know the majority of the agents showing the home are not the listing agent so they only show the home…they don’t “sell” the home. Brett’s marketing binder helps when a non-listing agent is showing the home.

*As you know Brett independently advertises. I don’t think we were ever shown on the other real estate company advertisements

*Brett communicated with us often and more than our other real estate company listing agent*Amy Browning, Brett’s sales assistant is outstanding. The due diligence period was very stressful with the buyers making very many demands. Amy was very helpful during the entire contract negotiation period. It would have been very hard completing this contract without her help. I would always recommend your agency to anybody that ask us. – Tom Pyle

Hello Dianne, I am happy to say Terry wants to list her home with Brett Knowles. She and Tom were extremely impressed with Brett. They were “blown away” with Brett’s marketing plan and his oveall personality and professionalism. I must tell you this is exactly what we are looking for agents and I am always thrilled to hear feedback like this!! – Judy Turner, Properties of the Villages

Great experience. Thank you!! – Tony Zefiretto

We had a great experience with Brett and his team. I believe that it was due to his team we were able to sell our house and purchase a new home within 2 months. We are so happy we took a chance on the market and actually sold what we thought never could/would happen. Thank you! - Nick and Melissa Davis

Great team!! – Noel and Jocelyn Hazzard

Everyone on Brett’s team are absolutely wonderful. They made the house buying process go smoothly and painlessly! Even when our bank gave us a few issues, they helped us anyway they could. We were not very sure what kind of house we wanted, they went through several houses and were very patient with us. Thank you so much! You made the house buying process a pleasure! - Kathryn and Louis Ragno

Smoothest purchase we have been a part of! Even though we were out of the country during an important step of the process, Brett and Amy made the deal go through without a glitch! Highly recommended and we will use them again the next time we buy or sell in this area! – Don and Yasmin Teter

You were informative, considerate of my opinions, and cooperative – bending to suit my needs. Amy was wonderful, answering my questions and not ever making me feel ignorant – which I was of this process. She was clear, supportive, and always upbeat. Thank you both for teaching me so much and making the change so quickly and easily. I am very pleased with the service you provided for me and will give you a positive recommendation whenever the opportunity arises. – Katie Foran

We just want to thank you for the help you gave us in selling our home. Thanks again! - Jeff and Anita Turner

Did an excellent job shifting gears when we changed our buying strategy. Listened and helped us “home in.” Thanks – Rick Sanderson

Brett and Amy were great. They work well as a team and are very efficient. If I ever need to buy another home or sell the home I currently own, Brett and his team will be my first call. Thanks Yolanda Stringfield

My partner and I recently purchased our first home with Brett Knowles help in March. He and his team kind, patient, and knowledgeable during the entire process. Furthermore, he treated us with the dignity and respect awarded to any other family regardless of our differences. I would recommend Brett for anyone thinking of buying a home without hesitation. – Sara Toothman

Completely satisfied – Dale Baehmann

Brett has sold two properties for me and helped with purchasing two others. I have been most pleased with his service in all respects. Both of my sales were under contract, one in two weeks and the other in three days and both closed on schedule. And, the three day property was handled in such a way that the selling price was more than the asking price. – Jerry Fipps

Brett was extremely helpful advising on needed repairs and recommending a very good contractor to handle it as I am located out of state.Amy was a real ‘lifeline” when dealing with the lawyers and what was needed to achieve the very tight timeline to the closing date. Very, very satisfied and all the neighbors on that block will be very well aware of how well everything was handled. – John Moore by Barbara Moffatt (AIF)

Great to have referrals to movers and other people needed during this process – Kim Morris

We really appreciated your professional manner. Everything was very clear and we were not left wondering or waiting. – Jose´ & Beth Caro

Well done and accurate! Very professional! – John Sheehan

I felt I made the right choice when I picked Team Knowles to help me find my place. Thanks a lot! – Jesus Batista

Brett was/is great. His suggestions to help the house show better were right on and in no way conflicted with what I was prepared to do to facilitate the sale of the house. Our first meeting, he showed up with a notebook full of comps and was fully and professionally prepared. Brett "walked the walk" and had sense enough to know that strong relationships are built out of loyalty, honesty and doing what's right. I will most definitely use Brett again if the opportunity arises and wholeheartedly recommend him as the one of the upper 10 % of Wilmington's real estate agents. – Lance Smith

We had a great experience with Brett. He is very knowledgeable and willing to work with you. He took his time with us when we looked at lots of different homes. Thank you Brett! – Russell & Janine Johnson

Brett did an excellent job in marketing our house and negotiating the settlement price. He was totally focused throughout the entire process and as a result the house sold in a matter of weeks for 97% of the asking price. I would highly recommend him for any prospective seller! – Pete Davis

Thanks to Brett for speaking to us realistically and managing our expectations! – Greg Smith

Both Brett and Amanda were consummate professionals. They held our hands every step of the way, kept us fully informed during the purchase of our new home and made the whole process easy. We could not have asked for a better team to assist us in our search for our new house in Wilmington. – W. Taylor Fain and Gao Bei

My goal was to sign with an agency that would represent a high level of professionalism, employing technology to facilitate the process without pressure. I found all of this with Brett Knowles and his team. Brett Knowles was a warm, gracious person who gave me a thorough presentation of all the facts I needed. This included professional written materials prepared for my individual home. The Brett Knowles Team advocated and negotiated for me successfully and walked me through the entire process of selling my home. I have recommended this agency to neighbors and I am grateful for their service. – Phylliss Reynolds

We appreciate you and all your staff’s professional help in getting our home sold. We’re happy to pass the baton to the new owners. – Peggy and Stan Nawrocki

Brett was a good negotiator for us and abided by our wishes to make this deal happen no matter what. Kudos to the Brett Knowles Team – John & Darlene Fried

I was amazed at how quickly my house sold with you after being on the market with no real interest for over a year. The professional service I received was refreshing! Thank you Brett & Amanda! – Kathleen Gaugh

I was impressed with fact that they did not waste time and energy pursuing non-promising clients, but when an interested buyer presented himself they knew how to close. Their patience and diligence paid off. – Gerald Morton

Our experience with Brett and team was exceptional! Within 11 days of putting our home on the market we had a good contract and one month later we are living in a new home 640 miles away in Florida. You cannot ask for better results than that! The whole process went quite smoothly in a short period of time. Thank you Brett and Amanda. – Norm & Donna Bidwell

Excellent professionalism. Excellent experience. – Dr. Charles Almond

Brett and staff took good care of Peggy and I and all the questions we had. Thanks to Brett and his staff. – Albert Silva

Brett started out by making an effort to understand our preferences and limitations in choosing homes to view. When we narrowed down to the home we wanted to pursue, he was top notch in working with the selling agent to find common ground, and ultimately closing on the home. He and his assistant Amanda both were timely and accurate with all information, and helped us with all the details of not only the closing, but finding contractors and services to work with after closing. I highly recommend Brett as a preferred realtor! – Greg & Ulla Swain

Brett was outstanding in helping us buy our home in Wilmington, NC. He listened to our needs and desires as we shopped though the listed homes for sale in the area. When we viewed a home that seemed perfect for us, Brett's knowledge and intuition assisted us in making a successful bid. Without Brett, we probably would have missed out on this home (due to multiple offers). Throughout the home buying process, Brett was patient and diligent. He and his staff were always there to answer questions, deal with the seller, contact utility companies, etc. We really felt like we had the "A" team working with us throughout. I give my strongest recommendation to Brett and his team. – Craig & Beje Keefer

What a wonderful selling experience! I am a former agent with Century 21, so when I decided to sell, I drove around the neighborhood. I saw that Brett pretty much had this desirable area under his belt, and I almost knew at that point he was “the man.” On the initial call, Brett was very understanding and was willing to negotiate with us. He immediately put some numbers together, and brought over two portfolios of the house. I told my husband I was not only impressed, but that Brett Knowles was the “man” for the job! I could not have had a better agent or agent’s staff! Faye and Heather did an excellent job informing me when Brett was going out of town; then stepped up to find answers and come by the house if we needed anything! We move about every three years (out of state) and I mostly had dealt with women because I am a professional woman myself. However, I noticed that the houses in my area were selling quickly and Brett Knowles was on every sign except two (and those two had not sold in a while). Brett, you really take the time to know Emerald Forest backwards and forwards and I thank you for your knowledge and expertise in helping us sell our home. What a terrific job you and your staff did to make it a smooth transition to Charlotte. Your team will not be forgotten! Many, many Thanks! – Debbie Bryan

We needed to sell our home quickly due to relocation. Brett was very knowledgeable of the market and at what price he thought our house would sell. We were able to get our house under contract within 2 weeks and close quickly there after. I feel like I got more than my money's worth through market knowledge and support from Brett and his staff. I would enthusiastically recommend Brett and Coldwell Banker Sea Coast to my friends and family - Bryan Rigsbee
