Intracoastal Realty Listing Selected as Finalist in HGTV Ultimate House Hunt 2019

A listing represented by Lynne Galloway with The Mitchell-Lewis Group of Intracoastal Realty has been selected as a finalist in the HGTV Ultimate House Hunt 2019. The Ultimate House Hunt is a month-long online promotion held each year on, featuring extraordinary homes for sale in eight categories: Amazing Kitchens, Big City Digs, Countryside Retreats, Curb Appeal, Homes with a History, Modern Masterpieces, Outdoor Escapes and Waterfront Homes.

All featured homes are represented by members of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International®. This is the eighth consecutive year HGTV has aligned exclusively with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International® for the popular awards, which run from June 12 through July 17. Last year’s promotion was the most popular in the award’s history.

The Intracoastal Realty listing was selected by HGTV’s editors as a finalist in the Waterfront Homes category.

The home is located on Banks Channel in Wrightsville Beach.  From the eco-friendly features like on-demand hot water heater and solar panels to the A-series windows and doors, Mukulungu tropical hardwood decking, multiple storage areas, and open living area of the exterior to the refined finishes of the interior featuring Wolfe and Miele appliances, Hansgrohe plumbing fixtures, Haiku fans, tongue-and-groove poplar walls w/vaulted poplar ceilings, and custom walk-in closets, this home checks every imaginable design or function box.

“As an affiliate of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, Intracoastal Realty is often presented with incredible marketing opportunites,” said Lake Slacum, Intracoastal Realty’s Vice President of Marketing.  “We are excited for the sellers of this wonderful property, and for the national exposure that the listing – and our region – will receive as a result of this promotion.”

Consumers have the opportunity to tour the 92 homes selected as finalists by viewing photo galleries on and can then cast a vote for their favorite properties. A winner will be chosen in each category based on the highest number of votes received, and an overall favorite will be awarded for the listing receiving the most votes.

The winning homes will receive editorial exposure on, as well as the prestige of being selected as fan favorites. Additional properties will be featured in the Global Homes gallery, boasting homes from ten different countries or territories around the world.

Hurricane Florence Recovery Tips and Helpful Info

Helpful Tips

  1. File with FEMA and get your FEMA number ASAP! You will need it for everything. Call 1-800-621-3362 or go to to begin applying.
  2. File a claim with BOTH your homeowner’s and flood insurance. Even though it’s a flood, homeowners will cover some wind damage and most of them will give you money for “loss of use” if you can’t live in your house.
  3. File for Disaster Assistance. ANYONE in the affected areas may get assistance. Click Here to Complete Form
  4. File for Disaster Unemployment. If you can’t live in your house or go to work because your work is closed or flooded, this applies to you. You must file an application for benefits by October 17, 2018. That’s a 30-day window. If YOU don’t think you are eligible, think again. Self employed and small business owners who lost income due to the storm qualify! Individuals who are unable to reach their jobs or self employment locations due to the storm qualify! DUA is funded entirely by the federal government, and you must first file for regular unemployment insurance. If an individual is determined ineligible for regular unemployment insurance, or has exhausted their regular unemployment insurance benefits, a DUA claim can then be filed. To file an unemployment insurance claim related to the disaster, call 1-866-795-8877 or visit:
  5. Get rental assistance. FEMA and SBA provide rental assistance to help pay for a place to live until you can get back into your house or find a new one.
  6. If you need repairs, rental assistance, want to buy a house, apply for an SBA loan. Although it is called the SBA, it is for homeowners too. Renters, as well as homeowners, may borrow up to $40,000 to repair or replace clothing, furniture, cars or appliances damaged or destroyed in the disaster. The SBA can approve a loan for the repair or replacement of a home up to $200,000. Survivors may apply insurance settlements to their disaster loan.
  7. Check local businesses for specials and discounts for people in the affected areas. Businesses will offer everything from half price pizza to furniture and clothing specials. If you have been resisting joining Facebook or don’t really use it much – now is the time to start a new bad habit! The Brunswick County Chamber of Commerce is posting all kinds of businesses that are offering help. Tons of people are sharing discounts.
  8. Call all of your bill collectors and notify them that you are in the affected area and/or that your house flooded. Most will delay your bill due dates. This includes your mortgage company, cable, electricity, water, credit card companies, phone etc.

Coastal Management Offers Emergency CAMA General Permit for Hurricane Recovery

Property owners that need to replace docks, piers, bulkheads, or similar structures damaged by the hurricane along sounds, rivers and creeks may be authorized to do so more quickly through an emergency general permit offered by the NC Division of Coastal Management.

The emergency permit expedites the approval process for rebuilding these structures that meet state standards. The emergency permit may also be used for dune reconstruction and maintenance dredging of existing channels.



Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey wants all North Carolinians to be educated and up-to-date as we recover from the effects of Hurricane Florence. Visit for information or call the Department of Insurance at 855-408-1212.

There are also a number of national and state charitable organizations that are doing their part to help the people of North Carolina to recover from this disaster.

Wells Fargo Championship Will Showcase Southeastern North Carolina


By Judy Royal

The bustling Wilmington NC real estate market and its impressive array of homes and properties will be on full display when some of the biggest names in golf, their devoted fanbases, and other spectators come to town in seven weeks. The Wells Fargo Championship, to be held May 1-7 at Eagle Point Golf Club in the rapidly growing Porters Neck section of northern New Hanover County, will act as a showcase of our area for thousands of visitors who might be getting their first glimpse at what Wilmington and its surrounding beaches as well as neighboring Pender and Brunswick counties have to offer. Would it really be a surprise if more than a few of them decided to buy their own slice of our paradise? After all, plenty of people fall in love with Southeastern North Carolina while on vacation and later return to spend their real estate dollars here so they can become a more permanent part of the area. It’s a symbiotic relationship, as many of the factors that stimulate tourism also strengthen a destination’s property market and provide a boost to home sales.

Whether you’re ready to buy or sell, or even if you’re just seeking a long-term rental or an NC beach vacation rental, Intracoastal Realty is here to meet your Wilmington NC real estate needs. We are a full-service real estate brokerage operating since 1976, and we currently have 12 offices with over 400 agents and staff to serve Southeastern North Carolina, including the areas of Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Southport, Oak Island, Ocean Isle Beach, Leland, Hampstead, and Topsail Island.

If you’re already here, you might be thinking about offering your home for rent during the Wells Fargo Championship for the influx of visitors who will be descending upon our area. Intracoastal can help you with that, too. Many of these visitors will be seeking to combine the tournament with a beach vacation and looking for something a little less commercial than a hotel. Don’t go it alone and put yourself and your property at risk; let a professional help you navigate the waters of offering your home as a short-term rental option for those looking to explore and discover our area.

The Wells Fargo Championship, a PGA Tour-sanctioned competition usually held at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, began in 2003 as the Wachovia Championship and has raised more than $19 million since then through Champions for Education, its nonprofit host organization. Last year, the golf tournament in Charlotte drew 185,000 people. The tournament is making a one-year stop in Wilmington for 2017 because Quail Hollow Club is hosting the PGA Championship, one of golf’s four major tournaments, in August and the Charlotte course will need several months of lead time to prepare for it. Although the tournament will return to Charlotte in 2018, the Wilmington area will reap the benefits of the temporary relocation. With up to 30,000 tournament tickets available each day during the four days of competition rounds and a projected economic impact of between $40 million and $60 million for the region, the event is expected to infuse lodging and other service-related industries with a windfall and foster new or enhanced business relationships for area companies. Also, The First Tee of Greater Wilmington will be the primary beneficiary of the 2017 Wells Fargo Championship and its more than $1 million in anticipated charitable giving. Re-established in 2016 as a local chapter, this organization’s goal is to reach 25,000 youth within the community by 2018. With support from the City of Wilmington, a tract of land adjacent to the Wilmington Municipal Golf Course has been allocated for the building of a new program site that will consist of a three-hole practice course, driving net area, and 1,000-square-foot classroom building to create a solid learning environment. The grand opening of the new facility is scheduled for the week of the tournament.

Thursday and Friday of the tournament will be broadcast on the Golf Channel, with third and final round coverage on Saturday and Sunday to be nationally televised on CBS. The tournament is broadcast to one billion households in 225 countries. This will be the first PGA Tour event in the Port City since the Azalea Open was held at Cape Fear Country Club in 1971. That event started in 1949, and winners included Arnold Palmer, Mike Souchak, and Art Wall Jr. Player commitments for this year include Roberto Castro, Derek Ernst, Lucas Glover, Bill Haas, James Hahn, Mackenzie Hughes, Andrew Johnston, Danny Lee, Marc Leishman, Shane Lowry, Ben Martin, William McGirt, Phil Mickelson, Carl Pettersson, Jon Rahm, Adam Scott, Webb Simpson, Vijay Singh, and Hudson Swafford. Eagle Point is a Tom Fazio-designed course that opened in 2000 and has been ranked among the Golf Digest list of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses six straight years.
