Elize moved to America as a young girl from the Netherlands with her parents and three siblings, including a twin brother. She initially immigrated to Chapel Hill, North Carolina where she first visualized the endless possibilities in America. Elize credits her parents for influencing her drive and work ethic. She went on to attend college at East Carolina University, earning an athletic volleyball scholarship and attained her Bachelor of Science degree.
During college, Elize’s parents moved to Wilmington, NC – where she and all three of her siblings would ultimately settle down. Her family has continued to grow roots in Wilmington, now with the next generation including two nieces and one nephew.
Elize values community and enjoys supporting local businesses and attending local events. She cherishes meeting new people, building lasting relationships, and any opportunity to influence others to explore all the wonderful things to do and places to eat in Wilmington.
After years of working in customer service focused businesses, Elize decided to pursue her vision of the “American Dream,” which included being a real estate broker. She joined ABG & Associates at Intracoastal Realty – one of Wilmington’s most well-respected and successful brokerage groups.
Elize takes pride in her ability to make anyone she meets feel comfortable and cared for. She is considerate, compassionate, enthusiastic, patient, and provides exceptional customer service and support. Her initiative to educate and guide her clients through each transaction ensures a smooth and well-managed process.
Elize loves to share her love for Wilmington. She welcomes the opportunity to assist buyers and sellers with her real estate expertise and knowledge of the area.
In Elize’s free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, cooking/baking, the outdoors, and yoga. She also keeps her competitive essence alive playing volleyball in a local league, at Captain Bills.
