What a celebration we have, The  State of NC 4th of July celebration is held in Southport, Parade is fabulous. Come early there's bound to be a parking problem in downtown Southport. We have the state and national dignitary. The military really gets a chance to show their stuff. We have the swearing-in ceremony for the new citizens of our country. That is a very special occasion. The tears just seem to well up for all of the pride of country. The weather is gorgeous,the beach is super and we are inviting you to "come on down"  Try to make it. love from NC Beaches,  Helen

Hi all. With the warmer weather upon us, Willetts Properties team has been working around the clock.  With the new tourist activity increasing, we have been busy working open houses, and making presentations.  The team has taken over a new home neighborhood in the Sunset Beach area, Sunset Ridge, with homes starting in the low $200s.  This new neighborhood is just one example of the rising local building permits being issued. The Commerce Department reported construction starts on new U.S. homes rose by 8.2 percent in April and applications for new building permits also increased for the first time in five months, showing signs of rebirth.  Starts in April ran at a 1.032-million-unit annual rate, up from a revised 954,000-unit rate in March, while permits gained 4.9 percent to 978,000 a...

I would really love to live in River Run. I have an ingrained sensitivity to harsh development practices. It pains me to see irreplaceable trees cut down unnecessarily. It hurts me when newcomers and visitors to the area think the Official tree of Brunswick County is the Palm tree, which has been introduced here ad nauseam since the early eighties. That's why every time I pull through the gate at River Run, I take a deep breath and give thanks that a community like this still exists. When a client contacted me wanting to list his waterfront lot in River Run with me, I couldn't say no. Although I work primarily as a Buyer's Agent, everyone knows I have a soft spot for River Run and it's on the water in a great location to boot. Needless to say, I didn't hesitate.

This is my first blog on this website and I'm really excited.   Brunswick County has consitently been one of the top 30 fastestgrowing counties in the US.   The maount of growth that I've seen in just 5 years is phenomenal.  The best signs for an investor are:  Growing infrastructure, Water and Sewer becoming more prevalent, New roads and bridges being built, New employeers coming to the area, Increasing number of people moving to the area.   the answers to all those questions are YES!  YES!  YES!  Sewer is going in throughout the county and it is being installed in our number #1 beach community Oak Island.   A new international container port is coming to Wouthport, which will bring a lot of jobs and money to the area  Our local schools are getting crowded and there are plans to build ...

Down here in Southport, it's just starting to feel a little different. Even though we've had our share of warm spells and 70 degree days this Winter, last weekend conjured up that unmistakable feeling of anticipation that has less to do with temperature and more to do with the primordial wake-up call that's being played all around us. You wouldn't know it by looking at my yard....all is still asleep including the bud-swelling, free-wheeling wisteria which has a conceded stranglehold around my front porch. We have attempted to guide and foster this determined plant which has muscled its way around around pickets and rail. It's a lot like the kids we've reared up right along side it....you admire it, you take pictures of it, you think you've got control over it, you nip it regularly, you...

Brunswick County continues to be one of the fastest growing counties in North Carolina - and why wouldn't it be? We have beautiful beaches, golf courses and what seems like endless sunny days!I look forward to showing you our area - whether you plan on making this area your permanent residence or just looking for a relaxing weekend retreat.   I am personally committed to helping Buyers and Sellers and will be proud to develop long-lasting business relationships through not only professional representation but also with personal and genuinely caring service. We have a great inventory with prices being better than they have been in years and recent cuts in rates - 2008 will be a great year to come down for a visit  - I welcome the opportunity to assist you.

This is a case where the picture and not the event nudged me out of my recent writing slump. I admit I get pretty caught up in the Fall trying to capture the perfect sunset. There are just so darn many of them. I usually start sizing up the clouds for potential around 4ish when I'm headed home. Sometimes the perfect sky comes out of nowhere but normally the late afternoon sky offers a "heads up" you can count on. The tranquil scene above doesn't fall into the spectacular category but to me it speaks of that perfect stillness of fading light. As I stood there last night, listening to rare quiet, smelling the richness of the marsh, it reminded me of why this is my favorite time of year in Southport.   Christmas in Southport is full of traditions, some old and some relatively new. This pa...

Not too much, really, but here goes: Southport's 2007 election came and went and the "writing on the wall" turned in to an accurate prediction. Southport residents were indeed ready for a change and voted decisively in that direction. All of the incumbents up for re-election were handed their hats. Now we'll see if Southport's new Mayor and Board of Aldermen can buckle up and put some teeth in the UDO and work towards further protecting the historical integrity of Southport and the little bit of working and public waterfront we're clinging to.   I've gotten a little side-tracked lately, as I've been writing about the various goings-on around Southport NC. I guess I've never really written anything for public consumption and certainly have never considered writing a pleasure, at least un...

What has been my biggest obstacle in the picture-taking mode I've been in lately? Well here in Southport NC, and I'm sure in many other towns across America, we have been overtaken by an outside invader, that clashes badly with picturesque persona we have become famous for. OK, I'll just come right out with it; "THE PROLIFERATION OF ELECTION SIGNS HAS GOTTEN OUT OF HAND!" Do I here an AMEN? Now you're probably thinking, "How can a Southport Realtor possibly have the nerve to write a blog complaining about local election signs?" This really opens up a can of worms and I'm not sure where I want to go with this. First I guess I would like to back up a minute and say that we have, I believe, an extremely important election coming up in both Southport and in Brunswick County. In Southport w...

It just doesn't seem possible that Halloween is right around the corner. Here in Southport, Fall has been a tease.... at best, for it seems to have disappeared.  It's October 19th and it's 85 degrees, hot and sticky, and once again I'm in denial wearing a long-sleeve shirt. Signs of Halloween are beginning to appear, and I had a good time last evening riding around and taking a few pictures. I don't have trick or treaters living at my house  anymore. I sure  do miss those days. I remember one year, when lacking a proper costume, we wrapped my daughter Kate up in a sheet, pinned a bunch of seashells on it, and sent her out dressed like a "beach!" She was too young to protest and really.....it's all about the CANDY. Some folks here still go all-out with their decorations. I'll have to up...

This weekend gets kicked off with a bang in Southport, NC, as the 29th Annual US Open King Mackerel Tournament starts Friday, October 5th.   Always the first weekend in October, this Grand Slam event offers one of the biggest purses in sports fishing, with the winning fish fetching $25,000. Over $100,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded. With over 500 boats competing, the tournament brings an estimated 2 million dollar impact with it to Southport and the Brunswick County area. This is a pretty big deal for a little town with a population of less than 3000 people.  But Southport is no stranger to big-time events, as it hosts the largest and longest running 4th of July Festival in North Carolina, welcoming 50,000+ visitors every year. The event is sponsored by the Southport-Oak Island ...
