Get to know Jonathan Swanson

I moved to Wilmington to attend UNC-Wilmington in 1995.  After graduating in 1999 with a B.S. in Business Management my wife Jamie and I continued to live and work in Wilmington.  

In order to pursue my interest in real estate, I eventually left my career in the Healthcare industry to dedicate myself to local real estate.  I am an active real estate investor and I enjoy working with real estate investors, individuals and families buying and selling homes in the greater Wilmington area. 

I often help investors find houses in need of moderate improvements and sell these homes as primary residences for families moving to the area.  Just call or email me for more details.  910.538.7737 or

I look forward to hearing from you and your friends.

About Jonathan Swanson, Broker

I am a Real Estate Broker and Investor in Wilmington NC.  I work with many other real estate investors who buy fixer uppers and repair them.  After they are fixed up we list and sell them to owner-occupant individuals and/or families. 

We like to find outdated houses that need moderate cosmetic improvements.  The investors I work with pay a fair price given the repairs needed.  We use a team of professionals to do the improvements as if I were going to live there.  Our typical rehab includes interior paint, flooring, kitchen and bathroom updating, new light fixtures and electrical repair, plumbing repairs and updating if needed and general carpentry and cleaning.  The exterior improvements usually include a lot of cleaning, landscaping, roofing, flashing, pressure washing, painting, siding if needed and replacement windows if needed.

We try to use the same people whenever possible for the repairs.  We create relationships with the people on our team by setting expectations between us and each person.  We do the improvements quickly and properly but in a reasonable time for a reasonable price. 

I've served on the board of the Coastal Carolina Real Estate Investors Association for the past few years. I've learned a lot about investment real estate in this group since 2004. We've had presentations on everything from foreclosures to short sales, to buying real estate with self directed IRAs and many other topics related to investment real estate and making and saving money in real estate.  If you're interested in visiting this group check out the web site at

In addition to my Investment Real Estate Experience I also work with traditional buyers and sellers who are relocating to and from as well as within Wilmington, NC.  I've helped dozens of families buy and sell houses in the area since 2004.  Feel free to call or email me with general questions about Wilmington NC Real Estate. or 910 538 7737.  To search for homes in the Wilmington area visit
