Ask Me Anything
I am a lifelong resident of Wilmington, growing up in the Middle Sound and Long Leaf Acres areas on the Northern side of Wilmington and New Hanover County. I attended Wilmington Christian Academy from Kindergarden through twelfth grade, graduating in 1984. I then attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduated in 1989, studying business management, marketing and computer science. I began working when I was around ten years old with a signifcant number of yards in multiple neighborhoods like Long Leaf Acres, Green Meadows and Windemere, that I would cut and maintain on a weekly basis during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. I began working for my father at Blake's Curtis Mathis Home Entertainment Center selling and delivering black and white and color televisions, VCR's, stereo equipment and CB radios. We then operating up to seven rent to own and video rental stores in the Southeastern NC and Northeastern SC. After a few years we sold all our stores and accounts and I began my career by working for eleven years at an area Coldwell Banker office and then in 2010 I left and opened our very first RE/MAX office. We have now expanded to five RE/MAX offices and have nearly 100 of the top REALTORS in our area working with us. Even though I am an owner of the company I have a team of real estate professionals called "The Buddy Blake Team" and we consistently sell over 300 homes per year. I personally focus on the marketing of our listings.
