TGIF Scoop

presented by Kay Baker & Associates

Hello and Welcome to the TGIF Scoop.

The party is getting started…. The 64th annual Azalea Festival will be held April 6- 10, 2011 in Wilmington NC.  Darius Rucker has been announced as the the headliner for the concert on April 6 at Trask Coliseum to open up the festivities.  Rucker was previously with Hootie and the Blowfish, read rest of story here….

This is an awesome time to consider buying a second home at the beach. To Wilmington NC home buyers this may be one of the best  home buying opportunities due to historic low interest rates, foreclosure and short sales, and the large inventory to choose from. Don’t miss out on a once in a life time chance to get a really good deal.  Rates are still under 5%.

Call us, use our local knowledge and experience to help guide you. Visit for up the minute MLS listings of homes in our tri-county area. And, we can send you a detailed list of all the short sales and foreclosures on the market. Just send a quick email to We will send the list right to your email box.

Get out this  weekend and all the activities that Wilmington has to offer.. And, remember, TGIF…..
