Brad Van Amberg
Brad attended evening classes at Fairleigh-Dickinson University in NJ while working in NYC for R.W. Pressprich, a Wall St. Stock Exchange member. After graduating with a B.S. in Accounting he joined Haskins & Sells, a "Big 8" CPA firm now known as Deloitte.
In 1978 he obtained his first real estate license while working as a Corporate Controller. Nearly twenty years later he would transition from Corporate Controller and part-time Realtor into Real Estate.
In 1998 he joined Carteret Mortgage while living in Raleigh as a Branch Manager and was later promoted to Vice-President. Brad was able to combine his real estate and accounting skills into his duties as a Loan Officer and Branch Manager. He remained in that role until the banking industry collapse starting in 2006. In that same year Brad and his wife moved to Wilmington to be near the beach and for Brad to transition back into real estate. If you are in need of assistance with the marketing of your home, guidance through a short sale or are looking for an investment property you have come to the right place. His vast real estate and mortgage experiences come into play when working with his Buyers.
Brad enjoys both tennis and senior softball during his limited leisure time. Wilmington is blessed to have some of the finest restaurants and beaches in the country. New Hanover County is pie shaped with three beaches to choose from. The trip from the northern end of the county to Fort Fisher at the southern end takes a little over half an hour. Finally, if you are worried about fitting in to a southern community "forget about it". We have more northern accents in this town than southern. But, we have all learned to be "Southern friendly". Don't be alarmed if strangers give you a smile and a hello, say hello back or engage them in a conversation.
