Perfectly appointed with fitting furnishings – which are negotiable with sale. Entertaining-friendly first floor includes an updated kitchen with stainless appliances, three sinks and a five-burner gas ranges, which opens to the great room.

Rehoboth Beach Recognized for Happiness!

Congratulations to Delaware's own Rehoboth Beach for landing the #2 spot on Coastal Living Magazine’s "Happiest Seaside Towns 2016" list. Rehoboth was also the smallest town on the list.

Great things come in small packages! There's so much to be happy about at the beach!

THE FULL ARTICLE - 2016 HAPPIEST SEASIDE TOWNS

Like Pharrell Williams says:

It might seem crazy what I'm about to say
Sunshine she's here, you can take a break
I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don't care, baby, by the way

Uh

Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

Winter IS Coming

Protect Your Investment!

 

It’s not a TV foreshadowing…it looks like a stark reality that winter may actually pay us a longer visit this weekend. After a wonderfully mild fall and winter here at Delaware’s beaches, the forecast calls for high winds, coastal flooding, snow and rain. While we may (thankfully) not get as much snow as our DC and Northern neighbors, the wind and potential flooding are definitely causes to get prepared.

 

Here are a few tips for homeowners to try to prevent costly damage and keep you safe:

 

Gutters – make sure they’re clear so ice doesn’t back up under shingles and they don’t cave under the weight.

Trees – be watchful of stray branches that may fall on your house or car.

Roof – keep an eye on worn, missing or damaged siding and roof flashing so you can save yourself a leak.

Chimney – inspect for any cracks.

Attic – add to the insulation on your attic floor, both to keep heat in and let the area above the insulation stay cool enough so snow isn’t likely to melt and refreeze.

Exposed pipes - wrap exposed pipes with insulation sleeves or 2 inches of Underwriters Laboratories (UL)-listed heat tape.

Cables – caulk cracks and holes around cable TV wires so interior pipes are not exposed.

“Trickle down” – allow a water trickle from any faucets connected to pipes that run through unheated or unprotected spaces.

Get smart – make sure you know where your home's main water valve is (typically in the basement or outside near the curb) so you can turn water off quickly if a pipe bursts. Also, drain the water system to prevent pipes from freezing damage and bursting if you go away.

Keep warm – If you are leaving your home, lower the heat but don't turn it all the way off.

Prepare pets – In addition to your own provisions, make sure you have enough pet food. And if your pet doesn’t like going outside when there’s snow on the ground, proactively put down a secured tarp. Then, after the snow, fold it back and you have a cleared space for your pet’s necessities J

Post-snow - clear snow and ice from walkways, steps and driveways. Treat these areas with rock salt or deicing products. And if you haven’t been active lately, take it easy! Shoveling is hard work.

 

Above all, stay safe inside!

There's No Place Like a Beach Home for the Holidays

 

December at the beach is definitely not a time to slow down! The calendar is full of fun, festive events and it’s still a great time to walk around downtown shops and restaurants, walk the boardwalk and the beaches - even surf with the right gear!

 

 

 

Just this weekend alone in Downtown Historic Lewes:

 

Thursday, December 3

 

SHOP, DRINK & BE MERRY! Merchants Hospitality Night in commercial district, with live music on Second Street. Always lots of good cheer and fun. 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.

 

Saturday, December 5

 

  • TOUR! Annual Lewes Historical Society House Tour (get your tickets first!) – 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

One of our listings, 219 Grey Plover Court, The Historic Clare House, is on the tour!

 

  • OPEN HOUSE! Angler’s Nest, new community of single family homes on the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.

 

  • PARADE! Old Fashioned Christmas Parade (with a special guest at the end!) 5 p.m.

 

  • SING! Caroling and Tree Lighting in Zwaanendael Park

 

And Santa moves back into Second Street next week!

 

For these and so many other reasons, many seasonal residents and home owners have made celebrating holidays at the beach a tradition.

 

And why not? What’s better than walking the beach and getting fresh air on the water, or taking a bike ride on the trail, before or after a celebration with family and friends? Not much! Even better consider a home that's steps to the sand!  Lewes Beach has great opportunities right now. 

 


The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group can connect you to ocean, bay or lake/pond front properties all along Delaware’s beaches. Holidays at the beach are a breath of fresh air!

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group: 8th in the Nation in BHHS Network

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group is Honored by Award

 

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group Ranked #8 in Nation for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and #1 in 17-state Southern Region

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (BHHS), the real estate division of CEO Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway global companies, held its annual convention from March 22-24, 2015, in Las Vegas. The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group of BHHS Gallo Realty in Lewes, Delaware, was announced as 8th in sales out of more than 35,000 agents nationwide for both units sold and total gross commission income (GCI) for 2014.

“We are thrilled and honored to earn these national awards and to be recognized on the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices stage for our performance both within the nationwide network and in our local beach real estate community,” explained Chris Holt, chief operating officer for The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group. “Truly the greatest honor for us, however, is the continued trust and commitment of our local clients who choose us to help them buy and sell their homes. This client loyalty and trust is what motivates us to deliver superior service and outstanding results day in and day out. We cannot thank them enough.”

The team’s 2014 distinction marks the third year in a row that The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group made the top ten nationally for both units sold and GCI. Additionally, Wilkinson and her team earned the “Top of the Rock” award, which goes to the #1 team in the 17-state Southern region of the United States.

“The awards at the annual convention always amaze me,” Lee Ann Wilkinson remarked. “My team’s focus every day is to strengthen our network of buyers and sellers so we can bring both together more effectively and efficiently. Earning recognition nationally for this dedication is incredibly humbling, and interacting with our colleagues nationwide is always eye opening. There’s so much to learn and keep up on in the ever-changing real estate world. I make sure to come home from each national convention with at least one new idea to improve our real estate practice.”

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group has been serving buyers and sellers in the Sussex County beach community for over 30 years. According to the Sussex County Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data, Wilkinson and her team has ranked #1 in sales for the last 16 consecutive years.

Vice President of BHHS Gallo Realty Andrew Ratner commended the group and stated, “I applaud Lee Ann and her team for their outstanding achievement. It comes as no surprise - as they are a customer-centric sales team that is always focused on meeting customer needs. The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group exemplifies the high level of customer service that our company strives to achieve with each transaction.”

Breaking News: Lewes Board of Adjustment Approves Project

Call The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group If You Are Interested!

Rendering from Davis Bowen & Friedel Inc.

Breaking Lewes Real Estate News!

The Lewes Board of Adjustment met November 19, 2013 and approved a nine-unit townhouse construction project for the corner of Savannah and Angler’s Roads.  Evergreene Companies Inc. owns the property (formerly the site of the Henlopen Motel) and plans to construct two buildings that will house the nine townhomes.   Lee Ann Wilkinson attended the meeting and spoke in support of the plan.

 

The Board considered another proposed project, developed by Cliff Diver, at 402 Savannah Road - the site of the U.S. Post Office annex; however, it requested more information before approval.

Combined, both projects will bring 17 new townhome opportunities to Lewes east of the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal. 

We expect brisk interest in the projects and encourage interested buyers to call our offices (302.645.6664) as soon as possible for more information!

Coastal Concerts: Culture at the Beach

Maybe you remember the TV show “Green Acres” (at least I hope so, or I feel way too old)?  Of course, city-lover Eva Gabor marries country-lover Eddie Albert and has to give up her sophisticated lifestyle – comedy and adventure follow.  As exciting and welcome a move to the beach is, sometimes there’s a bit of a Green Acres transition.  It’s an extreme example, but if you have lived in the city all your life, it may feel that way from time to time.

Often the transitional issues are really about moving from work to leisure.  As almost all retired people I know say, however, they are busier in retirement than in their “working” lives.  Plus today, there are many variations on retirement.

Whether or not you are making the retirement transition, any move to the beach can be a transition from urban life.  My clients who move from metropolitan areas welcome the slower pace (they don’t call us “Slower Lower Delaware” for nothing!).  Walking the beach or your neighborhood in the morning, actually seeing a full, dark night sky at night, and getting away from beltway/highway traffic are no-brainers.  The first months after a move are the honeymoon. 

But what if you are used to having theater, fine dining, museums and culture a subway ride away?  Don’t despair. From Milton and Lewes to Rehoboth, Dewey and Bethany, our restaurants can compete with any city’s menu.  Culture offerings are expanding, too.  The Rehoboth Jazz Festival always attracts renowned musicians, and we have many home-grown favorites.  The Rehoboth Beach Film Festival screens a great selection of international films.  Organizations like Coastal Concerts and Clear Space Productions bring fantastic events to our region.

A Note about Coastal Concerts

I am proud to say the Prudential Gallo - Touch of Italy Foundation, a group formed in 2010 to bring world-class performers to Sussex County and support local organizations in need, has supported Coastal Concerts for the enrichment music brings to our community.  The group’s mission is to promote classical music appreciation in central Delmarva through live concerts, outreach, and educational activities

Take advantage of and enjoy the group’s mission – and its 15th Season - worthy of “Park Avenue” and our beautiful, beach “countryside.”

  • November 16, 2013 - 2 p.m. – Brasil Guitar Duo
  • February 8, 2014 – 2 p.m. – Danish String Quartet
