Edwin Wilson Jr.
Realtor® / Broker
Born and raised in Alabama, I am a life-long southerner. My birthplace is a historic town (the entire town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places!) of 53 people that impresses all those who visit: Mooresville, Alabama is full of charming cottages, picket fences, and pre-Civil War antebellum homes. My upbringing there influenced my deep love for preservation, my affinity for design and architecture, and a profound reverence for all things from yesteryear. As I look back at my home town, it’s no surprise that I have become an expert in real estate about the types of housing in different eras of time, architecture, and the history of housing in modern America. In addition to my love for renovation and design, I love being outdoors: working in the yard, hiking the trails, or soaking up the sun on the beach. In my free time, I’m an avid sports fan and a periodic reader. I seek to keep my life rich with diverse hobbies. I also train high-intensity pilates for Core704 and am currently a commissioner appointed by the City of Charlotte to the Historic Landmark Commission.
Charlotte, NC came into my life in 2001 when I moved here to take a new job. My real estate career began shortly thereafter and was born out of buying a 1930’s craftsman bungalow in the historic Wilmore neighborhood. I fell in love with the tree-canopied streets, the simple details of the homes, and the can-do spirit of the neighbors that were fixing up their old homes. Neighbors became friends, and friends became my first clients. For my clients, I bring a unique skillset and the experience and track record of one of the top performers in our industry. My skills and talent include a keen eye for detail, a supreme knowledge of renovation and construction, and I am a thorough evaluator of value and opportunity.
Much like my neighbors became my friends, my clients have become my friends over the years I have worked in real estate. I am ever-grateful for the awesome community that I have created here in Charlotte. I am known for going to the limit for my clients; I work hard to go above and beyond for them. As they say, if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. That said, it is a privilege to work for my clients in our line of work. Since I love it so much, it doesn’t occur like work for me. I am always happy to take on a cool new client and assist them in fulfilling their real estate goals.
