So Much Good #2015RAD

by seacoast_ashley 10. April 2015 04:41


It is no secret that real estate agents like people. It is ingrained in them to like to talk, share, listen, and observe. Real estate agents are extremely social creatures. When my family has dinner out or spends a weekend exploring our town it is often an agent that we end up talking to at the table beside ours or on a walking trail at the park. Agents are movers and shakers. They are the people about town.

Last week our agents (over 100 of them) participated in Realtor Action Day. Agents from many offices and many different real estate companies gathered to perform different services for the benefit of our community. There were projects such as building 18 community garden beds at Devon Park United Methodist Church. These beds will be used to grow fresh foods for the community surrounding the church. In just 2 hours, an empty space was transformed to a working garden space.


Many Realtors headed out to the beach to plant sea oats. For visitors to our area, it is often questioned why we need to plant sea oats? The answer is pretty simple and one that locals can give quite quickly. The sea oats prevent erosion of our beautiful beaches. More sea oats equal more sand and protection. Sea oats have extensive root systems that oftentimes are the “glue” holding sand dunes together.

There were crews of Realtors cleaning our local Azalea Festival parade route, crews picking up trash and pinecones in one of our beautiful parks, there were crews crews everywhere! Every person that helped that day had one goal, to better the best community in the world!


My most favorite moment came when I visited the Autumn Care nursing home. I had hopped from site to site all morning watching all the good take place, but I was ill prepared for the beauty of people just connecting with people. The moment that touched me so deeply came when I was witness to some elderly women being pampered by some of the volunteers.  What I believe was the craft room at the facility had been transformed into a  “spa” for the morning. The residents waited with the nail polish of their choosing for their turn at having their fingernails painted.

One elderly lady was so excited. She was animated and gestured wildly while telling stories. Everyone sat in rapture of her. I couldn’t help but think that she must have been so fancy as a younger woman. This spa treatment seemed 100% up her alley. I felt so proud watching as my co-workers made human connections and gave someone a reason to smile.

Community is an extension of family. I am grateful for my community. My community supports me both emotionally  and financially, through the jobs that I have worked. The pride that I had for Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage during the 2015 Realtor Action Day was almost palpable. Many friends were made, many environments were beautified, and there was so much good!

We have amazing Realtors here at Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage. They are people who care. If you are looking to buy or sell your home we would love to share our skills with you!

Today was the 2013 National Philanthropy Day Awards Breakfast at UNCW, where theThe Cape Fear Region Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionalsrecognized nominees in six philanthropic categories. We are proud that our very ownBrain Moxey (Vice President – Director of Business Development at Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage) was a nominee for “Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year“!

Brian Moxey, Wilmington North Carolina, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage

Brian Moxey

From the awards breakfast pamphlet:

On New Years Day 2003, Brian led a group of friends on the beach of Surf City to start the year with a plunge into the Atlantic Ocean. Over a decade later, the New Years Day Dolphin Dip at Surf City is now America’s biggest New Year’s Day Swim Event. From a group of 20 to last year’s crowd of over 5,000 participants, the event has brought the community together while raising funds for various organizations.

Brian has a big heart for giving and inspires others to do the same. There is no cost to participate in the event, but it raises about $10,000 every year. Brain selects a different nonprofit to honor each year, trying to spread it around because there are “so many wonderful charities”. In the past, funds have supported Lower Cape Fear Hospice, Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity, and Hope for the Warriors.

With a passion for giving and helping, Brian Moxey advocates for many local organizations, including United Way of the Cape Fear Area and for the YMCA as a PPD Beach 2 Battleship Triathlon director. This year, Brian and his family were honored by the Karen Beasley Turtle Hospital when they named a rescued cold-stunned turtle Moxey. Moxey was released this June with much fanfare. Now the fanfare should be in honor of all the many other philanthropic efforts by our energetic friend Brian.

Thanks to all the community leaders, organizations and individuals who continue to make a difference in our community! You are all very much appreciated, and congratulations to all the nominees!

Local Realtors Make Golf Event for Wounded Warriors a Success

by seacoast_ashley 12. July 2011 03:54

Realtors with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty in Southport, NC recently participated in the Wounded Warrior Fellowship golf outing at Camp Lejeune’s Paradise Point Golf Club on June 15, 2011. 

Brunswick County residents from communities including St. James Plantation, Winding River Plantation, and the Southport area organized the event to show their appreciation to U.S. Marines that had been wounded. 

Two busloads of folks from Brunswick County traveled to Camp Lejeune to tee off with the wounded Marines.  They divided into 25 teams of four, each including a wounded warrior and enjoyed an afternoon of golf and barbeque lunch.  Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty sales associates Pat Wisdo and Jerry Wisdo donated bottled water for the event.

“We just thought it would be nice to let these Marines know that we do appreciate their courage and service that they give to our country on our behalf,” said Vic Rosado, a sales associate with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty.

Rosado and his teammates, fellow Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty associates Rob Dooley and Rich Hagan, and Gunnery Sgt. Jasper Heilig won the tournament.  They shot 62 on the par 72 course.

“I cannot tell you all how proud I am of you,” Sea Coast Realty president Tim Milam told them.  “The best thing about Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty is not that we make the most sales, but that we have the best people!”
