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.

I was referred to Brett Knowles by a friend. My house had been previously listed without much success. Brett listed my house on a Friday and I had an offer by Tuesday. Brett worked with the buyers agent to negotiate the sale. We closed within a month. I live in a different state and have never personally met Brett. All of our communications we’re either online or on the phone. Brett kept me informed. He worked with my builder to be sure the buyer’s requests were satisfied which was very helpful to me as an out-of-town seller. Brett’s office staff was very efficient and professional. The entire process was organized, professional and efficient. I highly recommend Brett Knowles.
We had such a great experience working with Brett. We are first-time homebuyers and Brett and his team went above and beyond to answer all of our questions and guide us through the home-buying process. He helped us find the house that was right for us and we couldn't be happier with our decision to work with Brett!
Brett has handled 4 home transactions now for our family. He has helped us both with purchases and selling homes and his expertise in this market is second to none. He and his team work tirelessly to make the process seamless. He is an excellent negotiator and always has his clients best interest in mind. If you need a real estate agent I highly recommend Brett Knowles! If I could give him 10 stars I would!!
