Still a wonderful place - 9/19/2019
We do have a beach house in Wilmington for almost a year. It's a nice small town (yes, it's growing), with historical center / fast access to beaches / a lot of great food places and kind people. Read More

Two Very Enthusiastic Paws Up! - 12/31/2018
Update- we have been living in Wilmington for almost a year now... so here it is, the paws-itive and the negative. We stayed through Hurricane Florence, we helped our community rebuild, and we have learned a thing or two along the way...

1) The Restaurants Here are a Hazard. Really.

We adopted Miss Charlotte Anne (a husky mix) after her family could no longer care for her. Miss Charlie had learned that many of the local coffee shops and restaurants keep biscuits on standby. She will now drag us, raining or otherwise, to every place that she knows has a cookie. Particular hazards of note include Fork N Cork, Bourbon Street (check out the Bloody Mary’s!) and Elijah’s- slightly more upscale and on the Boardwalk, a great place to watch the sunsets.

2) The Kindness and Compassion of the People Here Will Shock You

It was my first day with Coldwell Banker Seacoast Advantage when we realized that there were close to zero overflow shelters Read More

Best Up and Coming City on the East Coast - 3/21/2018
Point blank, the best up and coming city on the East Coast.

My fiancée and I picked Wilmington, after an exhaustive search of the continental USA. Between us, we have lived in San Diego CA, Los Angeles CA, Austin TX, San Antonio TX, Raleigh NC, NY, VT, Washington DC, Tampa and Sarasota FL, Alexandria VA... the list goes on.

We were in search of an artsy city that supported small businesses... coffee shops over clubs, boutiques over strip malls, historic homes over Suburbia, a walkable downtown, cultured locals, a night life that included plays and funky restaurants.

Initially, Wilmington wasn’t even on our radar. We work in the music industry and in PR- neither of us had ever even heard of it. But with the price of housing surging in the more “popular” cities, we were struggling to balance quality of life with finding a home that packed personality and potential.

New Orleans offered an unmatched scene for foodies and a phenomenal Read More

Not that South! - 9/1/2016
Wilmington has a great climate. It is far enough south that you genuinely don't get snow and it's far enough north that you don't get the humidity of Florida.

The climate, like the culture is a mixture of south and north. We transplanted from the Midwest in 2007. We were pleasantly surprised by how many fellow Midwesterners living here!

There are some drawbacks if you move to Wilmington... you will have more visitors at your home than you know what to deal with. Haha! Seriously, Wilmington is a great place to live. It does have its problems like any other city but the upside of living here is far greater.

I'm a Sperling Expert and Realtor, so if you have question feel free to contact me.

Considering relocating - 12/17/2015
Hello,

Just recently visited my daughter in Wilmington and visited her college. I have been considering moving here to be closer. I am currently in Las Vegas and hate it. I haven't been here long and the crime is absolutely overwhelming. I am a CA native but don't want to go back there either. Everyday someone is getting murdered here in Las Vegas and you're constantly being serenaded by the sounds of police sirens and the helicopters. I read alot of mixed reviews about the town so its hard to make up my mind. I did love the town and surrounding towns i visited while there. I felt safe, did not feel threatened in any kind of way. How is the job market, housing, etc. I have lived in many states and i'm pretty good at settling in. I appreciate any helpful Read More

It really is less expensive here - 12/16/2014 - 8/31/2015
Hi Sonya,
That was a great read on NC., I been wanting to move down to NC from Philly for a
while now, but I m moving on my own so I really want to move where it is safe and
where all the shopping and stores are..I've been looking on Neighborhood Scout to
find the safest places to live in NC., but that's starting to look scary. Is there
anything that you can send me some info on places where there is less crime rate and
where the area is around things to do. I have a house here in philly so with the money
that I have left over I want to buy a house outright if I can about $65,000., do you
think that's enough for a nice house in NC? If you know any of the above can you send
it to my email at: I_m_here@live.com

I really appreciate any help you can offer

Thank You
