Hey, I’m John Grimes, a Realtor with Keller Williams.  I am from western North Carolina and found my paradise when I moved to Wilmington in 1997.  Since then I’ve lived near the beach, in the suburbs, and now near downtown. So, my extensive knowledge of this area enables me to really help my clients find their ideal location for their quality of life.  

I enjoy working with buyers who are looking for any type of house:

New Construction - I know the builders & their quality.

Old Neighborhoods - I live in one and know many others.  For a house with character, there are gems to be found.

Renovations - some people want to get that diamond in the rough and renovate it with their personal stamp of personality and style.

I can appreciate all architectural styles from early American, to mid-century modern, the split levels of the 70’s, to the contemporary housing boom we’ve been in off & on since the nineties.  

When buying or owning a house, you will always need to hire a professional, and I have a wide variety of connections for different trades.  From builders to lenders to renovators to painters to roofers - I can put you in touch with someone available and qualified.  

When not exploring properties with clients, you will find me somewhere outdoors - either hiking, kayaking, or playing with my wife, kids, and dogs. I am especially keen on NC beers, the Wilmington live music scene, and our outstanding restaurants.
