Wilma McBrayer started McBrayer Real Estate Company on May 4, 1992. She worked for years as a buyer for Airborne Express.
Then she acquired her real estate license in 1980, and she worked for Darbyshire and Associates from 1980 until 1992. Her first office was a two-room condo on Rombach.
At that time she employed two agents; today six agents work for McBrayer. She is unique in Wilmington — she is the only female broker.
When stepping into her building at 1107 Rombach Ave. in Wilmington, the welcoming office atmosphere is apparent. This locally owned company offers a personal touch as it specializes in property rentals and relocation.
Shelly Fast, McBrayer’s assistant, is part of the friendly landscape of the office. She has been working at the company for 10 years.
She says, “I walked into the office knowing nothing about real estate, but I love learning. After one day of training, I knew that Wilma is wonderful to work for! This office is like my family.”
The McBrayer Real Estate Co. website includes, “The Personal Touch in Real Estate” under the logo. Definitely true, especially proven by two local bank representatives showing up at the door with chocolate, just to say “Hello.”
