My husband and I were relocating from out of state, and with our home closing scheduled for April 14, 2015 we were looking for something available within 2-3 weeks. I called Regina cold after finding her and her excellent record on Zillow, and I knew almost immediately she was the realtor for us. I emailed our requirements to Regina and planned a trip to the Wilmington area about 10 days from our initial call. As out-of-staters, we wanted a built-in social life so were particularly interested in Leland's amenitized communities. Regina was extremely diligent in sticking with our requirements, and despite the limitations with which she was presented, Regina had a great list of about a dozen homes for us to see on arrival. Truthfully, about 3 of them would have met our needs but none of them was perfect. We ended up signing a lease on a small home in Brunswick Forest for a year to give us more opportunity to find "perfect". This was the wise course for us because our children and grandchildren are a 10 hours or more away by car. Regina is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and extremely personable, patient and upfront. We actually had a great time looking for our next home, and while we are renting for a while, when we are ready to buy, we will definitely get back in touch with Regina. She's absolutely the best!

Regina really listened and understood what we were looking for. She put us in touch with knowledgeable and reputable lenders who could close fast and get us the best rates. She got to work quickly looking for something that met our needs and wishes, and she was responsive and quick to get us in to see any properties that we noticed on our own. Once we found the perfect home, Regina moved quickly to help us negotiate a deal that benefited us greatly and helped us get a fast closing as we desired. The process was smooth and as hassle free as home-buying can be. When it comes time to sell or buy again, Regina will be our go-to agent. Less ... More

Never responded to my inquiry
I am considering relocating to the Wilmington area. She never replied back to my email. maybe she didn't get it or maybe since my move is more than a year away it wasn't a good enough lead. Not sure.

Yesterday, Reginia sold our home within 100 days of listing with her after it had been on and off the market for over a year. She was very professional and pleasant and it felt like I was her only client (and I assure you I was not, her numbers are the highest around). You would've thought she was representing a million dollar home and not a working class cottage in downtown ILM. I never had a problem getting a hold over her. She does not sacrifice personal report for her high numbers of sales. She was always calm, responsive, and honest. She is highly methodical and has actual data to back up what she says every time. That was very compelling in the sometimes mystifying marketplace. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to sell their home. If I were to buy a home again in the surrounding area, I would definitely call Regina. Less ... More

I bought a house that Regina had listed and that transaction went so well I decided to use her to sell the house I was moving from. I made the right decision; she really knows how to sell houses. I followed all of her recommendations, respect her expertise, and admire her judgement. She was always available to address my concerns and has a cheerful and upbeat manner that I found very reassuring. She is a 'glass two-thirds full' person. She made selling my house as pleasant as a terrifying life event can possibly be. Just take a look at how many houses she's sold this year. I won't list the number, because it's constantly changing, but I'll bet the other sellers are as pleased as I am. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
because of Regina's sales skills I was able to increase my profit on the sale of my home by 13k, almost enough to cover the entire real estate commission fee. She handled the negotiations and the paper work. She even suggested a home inspector to dispute some of the items the buyer was requesting be completed prior to closing. My home was sold in 2 days , never have I had an easier transaction.

Working with Regina Drury was nothing less than FANTASTIC!!! Our house in Brunswick Forest had been for sale for over 4months with another agent and after switching to Regina we had a contract in just 29 days!!! We were always able to reach her, she gave great advice, and during the negotiation process she was just amazing!!! Hiring an offsite agent in Brunswick Forest was the BEST thing we did. She was super knowledgeable of the neighborhood/area and today we closed on the house!!! I have no doubt that anyone using her would have the same wonderful experience that we did. Our biggest mistake was not using her from the beginning. Many Thanks! Less ... More

Regina Drury is a pleasure to work with. She knows the Wilmington area market very well regarding pricing a home to sell in relation to comparables and upgrades to a home. She marketed our home on several venues and followed up on responses immediately. After showings, she communicated the results and comments of potential buyers quickly. While the house was under contract, she followed up to make sure all was getting done to expedite an on-time closing. We highly recommend Regina Drury!

Regina was ON POINT. She kept in my price point and found me the perfect house. In addition to this being my first home purchase, I came from out of state (7 hours away) to buy a house. In one day she took me to look at over 7 properties (which included my dream house). Regina knew the areas we looked very well and was able to tell me the pros and cons of each. Regina took her whole Saturday to work with me; she never seemed rushed and I felt like her #1 priority. Putting in the offer was easy as well as was the communication that followed. Regina anticipated what I needed and called me before I had the chance to call her. There wasn't a question she didn't have (or couldn't find) an answer to. Thanks Regina...and I would recommend her to EVERYONE who is looking for a home. Less ... More

After trying to sell our house for three years, Regina had it under contract within 12 hours of being listed!!! Regina is truly an expert at what she does and we could not have asked for a better agent. She was always easy to get in contact with and kept us up-to-date throughout the whole process. We are so blessed we met her when we did. We could not recommend a better agent! Thank you, Regina!!! ~Burger Family

Simply the best! We had been looking for over 6 months for our new home and new life in Wilmington, NC. We considered many areas including Southport and in the end Regina Drury found us our home and didn't stop negotiating until we got it! She worked until 11pm with the selling agent on a Saturday night to ensure we got the home as the home was uniquely located in a non-HOA area and close to the beach at a good price! This was the 12th home we purchased (hopefully the last) and due the interest in the home by other buyers we weren't certain we would get it. Regina worked tirelessly and relentlessly to ensure we got our dream home! She is the best agent we've ever worked and highly recommend her to anyone. She listened to us very carefully and aggressively pursued the home we wanted. Not sure any other agent would have kept working the deal until 11pm! She is superb and unique one of kind real estate agent! You won't be disappointed! Less ... More

We lived in a relatively new neighborhood in Leland and Regina has helped neighbors of ours sell their homes. The properties she listed sold faster than other agents' listings and her clients got very close to the full list price in a relatively short time in this difficult economy. After Regina helped our next door neighbors sell their home, we knew that when the time came to sell our home we would call her. She is very professional and was well prepared to document her suggested listing price. She was very thorough in her research and gave us the confidence to list at her suggested price. Our goal was to sell quickly and get the most we could. Regina help us achieve our goal by finding a buyer that paid full price after it had been on the market for only 50 days. Whenever we hear that someone wants to sell their home, we recommend Regina. She did a fantastic job for us!! Less ... More

Regina lead me to my home. When I first contacted her she had me call a mortgage broker to get approved for a loan. Once this was done I discovered Regina was on a cruise but her assistant Tiffany stepped in and started working with me. She sent me several MLS listings that evening and I went thru them. The first one was the one that caught my eye. Tiffany and I talked the next day and I chose 3 of the MLS lisiting to see and asked her to chose 2 from Wilmington to look at. Tiffany and I met in Leland and went to look at my first chose, which is now my home. I had a funny feeling that this was it. But, we still went and looked at the next two homes which were awful. As we headed to Wilmington to look at the 2 houses Tiffany had chosen I asked her why we would go look at them as they were both 2 bd 2 baths 40,000 dollars more and the house in Leland I really liked was a 3 bedroom and much cheaper. More for less. By 6pm Tiffany had submitted my offer and we waited 4 days for an answer. It was nerve racking but anytime I called Tiffany she just kept me up. On Monday she called with the good news that my offer was accepted. Thank god that Regina had me get qualified before we looked, in the end run this is why I own my home. Anyone else looking at it were not qualified yet. I have never owned a single family dwelling in my life and Tiffany made it happened. I had a sense she was new at this but I would encourage anyone to call her. Thru out the next 30 days if Tiffany was not there Regina was and her husband was always in the background feeding directions to me to get thru Wilmington. I am now settled in my home and very happy thanks to Tiffany and Reginas team. Thank you so much and if you are looking for a realtor who can make things happen for you, you would be crazy not to get to know these folks. They know what they are doing. In the end the one person I wanted at closing with me was Tiffany and she was. She picked it up in the middle and saw me all the way thru closing. Tiffany you are awesome. I wish you well with the Drury Team. Less ... More

Regina was so helpful and knowledgeable about the areas we looked at houses in. She found several houses in our price range and showed us every one of them. When we decided on one she stayed in contact with us and kept us updated on the progress. She found us the perfect house at an amazing price! We are paying less to own our home than we did to rent our apartment! Thank you so much Regina!

Regina and her team found us a condo exactly where we wanted it before it was even on the market. Few ground floor units were available there but she found one, negotiated a low but fair price and then renegotiated when a VA appraiser used lowball sales (foreclosures and short sales). We actually should have lost the unit but Regina negotiated with the owner who then accepted the $4,500. drop in price. Aside from the normal agent processes she was always responsive to questions or our anticipated problems. She explained options clearly and completely and even came over with her husband to check a 220 line for the stove before letting us call an electrician. She found us a wonderful home to spend the last years of our lives and proved to be a exemplary professional. I would recommend her to anyone. Less ... More

There is no need to pick any other real estate person in the Wilmington Area besides Regina. My mom lived there for 20 years and I had to move her recently, And since I live in Virginia my time was very valuable- I interviewed 3 agents and Regina was just totally prepared, personable and understood our needs better. The other Agents were nice. but nice doesn't sell your house. She was amazingly thorough, the follow up was as promised, she took care of all our pre work in order to sell the house. She knows what contractor, AC person, etc to call to aleviate the time it would have taken me to get things fixed.. She made the entire process seem like a walk in the park. leave it to her to take care of everything and YOU will be extremely satisfied and stress FREE. Regina Drury is not only the most professional, empathic and caring real estate person I have ever encountered BUT a really good person overall. And I have moved 11 times in 52 years, so I know what I am talking about. thank you for making our experience a smooth one. Less ... More

Regina sold our house a year ago. She was on target with her facts and was able to sell our house in less than 60 days. We thought we would rent forever. However this year we decided to buy a condo and contacted Regina immediately. As soon as she knew what I was looking for she directed me to EXACTLY what I would want. She is knowledgable but most of all diligent to see the transaction from start to finish. I don't think of her as a realtor - I think of her as a friend. Friends look out for each other and she certainly looks out for her clients to find them the best property, best deals, best loans. I would highly recommend her for selling and buying. Less ... More

Great news Linda, your condo has already gone up in value! When I showed you that property there were several to choose from. Now there are none for sale! It's already worth about 15% more than what you paid just a few months ago. Congratulations! Regina Drury

We had our home on the market for 10 months with 6 showings. This was listed with another realtor. After no results, we found Regina. Wish we had met her first. After being on the market for 2 days under her listings, she sold our home. I definitely recommend her. She knows the business and is driven to do the best for her clients.

When we first starting our house buying process and spoke with Regina, she asked us for a list of our wants and demands. She got it right on the first house. She knew exactly what we wanted before she even met us face to face. We decided on a short sale and discovered there were many bumps and road blocks along the way. Regina was right there the whole time making sure we got what we needed done and made sure it was done correctly. She kept us updated daily even when there wasn't news and was upfront and honest with us from the beginning. She fought hard for us and we ended up in the house that we loved for an outstanding price. I would recommend her and her staff to anyone looking for a house. They definitely went above and beyond their duties and that truly means a lot. Less ... More

The best Real Estate experience I've ever had. My home was on the market just shy of a year until I listed it with Regina. After listing it with Regina it sold in 2 mo's. She is very knowledgeable and eager to make it happen. It is also important to have an experienced Agent like Regina when difficult situations arise during a Real Estate transaction. She knows exactly what to do and is always there to protect your interest. I would definitely recommend Regina to represent anyone trying to sell or buy a home. Less ... More

Regina is the most responsive and knowledgeable real estate professional I have ever dealt with ---- amazing! I highly recommend Regina. I contacted Regina through Zillow and within 30 minutes she returned my message. Regina helped me determine an offer for a foreclosure and navigated the negotiations and process. Within two days I signed a contract on a foreclosure for significantly less than what the bank was asking. From start to finish the process was a breeze. I have spoken to several agents in the NC area but none compare to the knowledge of Regina. I live in New York and have been looking for something in NC for some time. Since I could not visit the house, Regina went to the house the same day I called and sent me a video so I could make a decision. I knew foreclosures go quickly so I didn't want to wait till the following week when I would be in NC. Regina quickly arranged for a home inspection and set me up with an attorney and banker. It's rare to find someone who acts with speed and accuracy on your behalf. I truly believe that if I did not meet Regina I would never had gotten this deal. I feel like I hit the lottery with the property and Regina !!!!!! Less ... More

I basically asked Regina to perform a miracle. I now live in Florida and owned a home in Wilmington on the rental market that I really needed to sell, which meant going through the sales process with tenants (in the last 2 months of their lease) that I did not know and who didn't have a stake in the sale. If I didn't sell the house by the time their lease was up, I was faced with either keeping it unoccupied on the sales market or leasing it out for another entire year. Regina suggested - a brilliant strategy that helped us a number of times - that I offer to pay the tenants a bonus if the house sold while they were still there, essentially bringing them in as partners. The other thing that I appreciate, having had the house on the market - unsuccessfully, several years before - was that her market analysis enabled us to put the house on the market for a fair, yet realistic sale price. That made my house very competitive, even in this market. I found Regina and her wonderful admin, Tiffany, to be extremely efficient and thorough in their communication with me and in serving as intermediaries with my tenants to deal with the inspections and other details needed to sell a house. And there WERE a couple of times that she had to remind the tenants of our partnership and the bonus, which I'm so thankful she suggested. And the miracle? Well, it happened. My tenants moved out on Wednesday; we closed on Thursday after having the house on the market for less than 2 months. AND the sale price of the house was within 3% of my original asking price. Thank you Regina! Less ... More

Mrs Regina was such a nice lady. She helped my fiance and I get our first house! It was very exciting and she set an entire day aside just to help us. She knew the perfect spots to look for houses so he would not get caught up in the awful bridge traffic in Wilmington. She went above and beyond to get paperwork to him, which was a huge help because he is in training right now and could not be there in person. We thought the monthly payments were going to be too high, but with her help and patience we found the perfect loan and can easily afford it. She does not keep us in the dark about anything; she calls us both to let us know exactly what is going on. I now see why she is ranked so high! We thank her so much! I would recommend her to anyone.
