Stats:

  • Hometown: We are both from New Jersey
  • Years Living In Wilmington: over 8
  • What Brought You To ILM? Alexis's mom bought a second home here. We visited and immediately fell in love with the area. Within just a few short months, we packed up everything in New Jersey and moved because this is where we knew we wanted to live! And we became just the first of several family members to become full time residents here.

Favorite Spots In Wilmington:

  • Manna- restaurant in downtown Wilmington is our family’s favorite place for all celebrations. The food there is wonderful. You might even catch a celebrity!
  • The Ivy Cottage- has so many unique finds among its eclectic mix and antiques. Together we have created statement pieces for our home by re-purposing beautiful antique furniture from the Ivy Cottage.
  • Wilmington’s Whole Foods- I know its a food store but its truly is one of are favorite places to go. We can be found there often, taking advantage of all of the fresh local, organic items.

Local Spot Tourists Don't Know About ...

Our family has enjoyed spending time at Poplar Grove Plantation. It’s just outside Wilmington. You can learn history, see farm animals, relax in the nature preserve or enjoy the farmer’s market and the many festivals held there throughout the year.

Unexpected Facts:

  • We have had the honor of being part of two different Wilmington Magazine covers. The first time, the cover featured a photo of the kitchen in our home. The second time, the cover featured a photo of the beautiful flowers and canopy from our wedding.
  • Alexis: I am an artist and a designer, and also the creator of a patent pending product that is a practical application of my artistry. I have been the lead decorator of several eye-catching homes.
  • Lee: I grew up on a dairy farm. That early farm work helped me know that I was very good with my hands and had natural mechanical talents. I put that to good use in the automotive industry for 19 years, including as an instructor to new hires for the last 6 years.

Why Do You Love Real Estate?

Alexis: My mother is my true inspiration. I grew up with a mom who bought and sold numerous homes for her own use and commercial properties for investment. Since looking at real estate possibilities was something we often did together, being a realtor is a natural evolution of my accumulated knowledge and creative talents. I was a realtor in NJ and now am excited to be a realtor in my new hometown.

Lee: From a young age I gained an amazing work ethic and my mechanical abilities from my grandfather. Putting these traits to work in the automotive industry, I also developed a strong customer service ethic and great attention to detail. For me, the real estate housing market is a puzzle, just like the mechanics of a car. I love to look at houses on MLS, seeing how they fit in the solution to that real estate puzzle for someone. The land, the lots, the homes on them – they’re all part of the fascination of real estate for me. And as a bonus, I get to work with my wife.

Most Unique Thing You've Seen In Real Estate:

When I was a realtor in New Jersey, my mom and I were out looking at houses for possible investments. We went to see a house on Shades of Death Road (Yes, it's a real name! you can look it up on WeirdNJ.com) that looked like a typical bi-level from the outside. Inside, however, the lower level was an indoor pool with no moisture barriers of any kind. The gross-looking result was black mold all over upstairs, and a graffitied broken down pool downstairs. Needless to say, we did not consider this a good investment!
