Sandy Thornton, REALTOR®

The southeast portion of North Carolina includes some of the country’s most beautiful coast line and the area around Wilmington is becoming increasingly popular for new residents, vacationers, and retirees. Wilmington is a historic city that was home to pirate battles, colonial uprisings, civil war battles, and more. Today you’ll still find many antebellum buildings and houses that have survived to the modern day, along with a contemporary and diverse economy with the largest movie studio in the country outside of Hollywood and a surging tech and R&D industry.  This is one of the fastest growing cities in America, having nearly tripled in population in the last 25 years and there are new homes going up across the city to make room for the new arrivals.

Just up the coast you’ll find a much more sedate town in Hampstead. Only twenty minutes from all the amenities of the big city, this smaller seaside locale has kept its small town charm. Some of the best golf courses in the state are located here, along with schools that any parent would be happy to send their children to.  You’ll enjoy lower population densities, clean safe streets, wholesome values, and the kind of southern hospitality that makes North Carolina famous around the country. 

Stop by my office to talk to me before you buy or sell a house along the Carolina coast and give me a chance to earn your business. This has been my home for the last thirteen years, and for twelve of those I’ve been helping people just like you get the most out of their real estate budget. Talk to me about your real estate goals and I’ll do what it takes to help you achieve them all.

About Me

My name is Sandy Thornton, real estate agent covering Wilmington, Hampstead and the surrounding communities.  I arrived in the area thirteen years ago after spending a year looking up and down the Atlantic coast for a place I felt at home.  Of course it was in North Carolina that I felt the warm welcome of a community and so this is where I settled down.  Within a year, I switched careers so that I could help others find the same kind of warm southern welcome that I did.  I became a real estate agent and started building a practice based on customer service, communication, and southern hospitality.  Today I am a full service broker, ranked among the top two percent of all Century 21 agents nation wide, and a relocation specialist.

Whether you are new to town, planning a move, currently here and looking for a new place to live, or need someone to help sell you property in the area, I would love the chance to earn your business.  Come sit down with me to discuss your real estate goals and I’ll bend over backward to help you achieve them all. From start to finish I’ll be right there beside you making sure you understand  what is going on and what comes next, and I’ll handle all of the paperwork in a timely and professional manner.  Just give me a call when you’re ready to get started or make an appointment with me online.
