Daniel Thompson - Intracoastal Realty

About Daniel


With my family originating in the Wilmington and Richlands/Jacksonville area I have extensive knowledge of the properties along the coast!  With my great grandfather being Secretary of State of North Carolina and my grandfather being president of the NC Dental Association, I have been given many connections that other realtors might not have.  My family has owned property on Wrightsville Beach and in the Wilmington area for over 150 years.  I remember running up and down the sand along Banks Channel as a kid with my 5 brothers and sisters when there were only a few docks in existence.   I have been a resident of the Wrightsville area for over 30 years and am still fortunate enough to live at the this beautiful beach.  It is amazing to see how much it has changed around here over the years.  With the market changing from a buyers market to a sellers market you need an agent that can still find you property that other realtors may not know about.  I specialize in finding hard to find properties!  I have extensive knowledge of the building process, investing in and developing properties as well as 1031 tax-free exchanges.

I graduated from Terry Sanford High School as a member of the Honor Society and graduated from UNC Wilmington in 1984 earning a degree in Chemistry.  I worked at General Electric Corp. for over 10 years as a lead chemist.  I also worked at Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Union Carbide and Enviro-Chem in Raleigh.  Once I began noticing how rapidly Wilmington was growing and being ready for a change I successfully received my broker's license in 1994.  I became very interested in developing, rezoning, building out properties, remodeling and also entered into the rental and management business.  My wife and I have 2 real estate investment companies.  I  am a member of the Multiple Listing Service, and WRAR and have passed the Jeff Elias Real Estate Finance Seminar and the Floyd Wickman Top Producer Seminar.  I have worked for Intracoastal Realty for many years and am considered a top producer by consistently being mutil-miliion dollar producer.

My family consists of my wife, Maria, and our son and daughter and our chocolate lab, Captain Burleigh!  We enjoy attending Port City Church, surfing in the Eastern Surfing Association, playing baseball, boating, fishing, surfing, and exploring the creeks and marshlands.  We also treasure our time spent at our cozy little 2nd home in the Outer Banks of NC, but we love calling Wrightsville Beach our home!

There is something special about life here on the coast!  Please contact me if you are thinking of buying or selling OR if you know of someone who is!  I would like to meet you and work with you, just send me a text, email or give ma a call and let me help you achieve your goals!
