Wilson grew up on the coast in Wilmington, NC. As difficult as it was to leave the beach, Wilson moved to Chapel Hill to attend the Business School at UNC. During his time studying marketing and finance, Wilson discovered that he had a passion for Real Estate and it was an avenue in which he could apply his education. Wilson earned his Real Estate license, graduated from UNC with a business degree and moved to Raleigh to start his career. Over 12 years in the business and hundreds of clients later, he still loves what he does.
Real Estate is a lifestyle for Wilson. If he is not working for a client, Wilson finds himself driving through neighborhoods, previewing homes, reading articles or book son real estate, working on a project around his house or at one of his rental properties. When Wilson does take time away from work, he typically goes to the beach with his wife, Lauren, and his two sons, Jackson and Walker. Additionally, each year he enjoys a weekend golf trip with college friends and a long weekend trip to Park City, Utah for some snowboarding.
Wilson understands that buying or selling a home is a daunting process. When you add in the stress of emotions, finances and deadlines, it can be completely overwhelming. There is a quote that Wilson loves: “it is easier to be wise for others than ourselves” – Francois De La Rochefoucauld. With over ten years of real estate experience, combined with his many contacts in the business community, Wilson has the experience, knowledge and resources to make the process go smoothly as possible for his clients. Additionally, Wilson is continuously updating his real estate knowledge by attending courses and studying real estate contracts, finance, home construction, architecture, etc.
