Intracoastal Realty Corp - A Company with a Conscience

I am an agent with Intracoastal Realty Corp. It is a privately owned company started by a giant of a man in stature and with great marketing savvy and skill. It was started over 30 years ago by Jim Wallace as a beach boutique type office to sell oceanfront high rise condos at Wrightsville Beach. Today it is a giant in the real estate community with a commanding share of the Wilmington market in luxury and beach properties. There are over 200 agents and 5 offices. But this market leader is also a good corporate neighbor. Jim Wallace started the Intracoastal Realty Teacher's Fund to benefit the more than 70,000 students in our local area. As of October 2009, The Teachers Fund has awarded local schools over $ 180,351.00. Jim's mother who recently passed away was a teacher and he wanted to help all the teachers in the area who often dip into their own pockets to help students with supplies and the like. The Teacher's Fund is just one way Intracoastal Realty gives back to the wonderful place we've called "home" for the past 33 years. Its great to be part of such a giving community of realtors..
