Henry, owner of Henry & Company Real Estate is a local industry expert in Wilmington area Real Estate. His family history dates back to the 1700’s when they settled in Wilmington. As a Wilmington Native and lifelong resident, Henry brings an unmatched wealth of area knowledge to his Real Estate clients whether they are buying or selling.
Henry’s experience and success in Real Estate is shaped from his past career as a NC Licensed General Contractor. Henry began building homes in the mid 1990’s building both spec homes to sell and custom homes for clients. Licensed in Real Estate in 1999, Henry began selling the homes he built and his love for selling Real Estate grew. Today 19 years later, Henry was one of the top producing agents at RE/MAX Essential from 2010-2017, earning the platinum, chairmain and Hall of Fame awards along the way making him one of the top agents in the Re/Max system. Although Henry has the unique knowledge from being a native to the area, a Builder and a Real Estate Broker, he strives to continually learn more to give his clients the best resource to work with in achieving their Real Estate goals. This is why he is constantly educating himself in new trends in Real Estate and new technologies that will enhance the home selling experience of his clients. Henry holds membership in the local Wilmington Association of Realtors, the NC Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. Henry is a Consumer-Certified Real Estate Consultant and is a member of the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing.
The center of Henry’s life outside of Real Estate is his family. He spends his free time with his wife of 27 years, Ann, raising his family of three children teaching them all about life (and learning a bit about life from them as well). They enjoy family time at the beach or on their boat.
As an active-duty military member recently stationed in the area, I was looking to buy a home in the downtown historic district using a VA Loan. This was my first home purchase and I had a lot to learn. Fortunately, Henry's local knowledge as a life-long Wilmington native and 20-plus years of combined general contracting and real estate experience made him uniquely qualified to give me expert advice. Henry worked with me for months to ensure I was completely satisfied before I made an offer. Henry's patience, encouragement, enthusiasm and help made the experience both easy and educational.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Wilmington, NC.
Henry did everything possible to make our home stand out from all the other listings. That included getting photos done by a professional photographer so the first impression of our home by seekers on Zillow were the best possible. Yes, we did sell our home in two weeks, thank you Henry!

Henry and his team were incredible! They went above and beyond to help us navigate a complicated deal with a difficult seller and we would recommend them to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $675K in Wrightsville Beach, NC.
As first-time home buyers coming from another state (with a baby in tow), Henry made the entire process easy and even fun. He spent a lot of time helping us get to know the area, and as a lifelong Wilmington resident, it's clear he knows the neighborhoods very well. He also was very patient in answering our many questions, and his knowledge as a builder was useful in evaluating each house. We found Henry through Zillow and couldn't have been happier. It's rare that you find someone (in any profession) who puts your best interests first, but we felt that Henry did. We would certainly use Henry again and would recommend him to anyone.

Henry is very skilled and professional he works tireless and see's every aspect of the sale through to completion. He's the perfect example of what a real estate agent should be, he's truly mastered his art. If your thinking about selling or buying a house I strongly recommend Henry McEachern, he'll do for you what he did for us, "make the experience both rewarding and memorable".

Henry was very knowledgable about the area and industry. He showed us a house in downtown Wilmington and seemed like a very honest and hardworking agent. He was a pleasure to work with.

Showed home in 2015 in Hightsville, Wilmington, NC 28401.
We had a very good experience with Henry. Henry is always in a good mood. You would never know he was working with anyone else while serving your needs. Henry has extensive knowledge of the building process and is a great asset when walking through homes. He has his finger on the pulse of what homes in the area should sell for as well. I came to depend on him when we would walk through potential homes. He never tried to fit us in something we were not looking for either. (which is unusual from my experiences with some realtors) We would recommend Henry without any reservations whatsoever!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Carolina Beach, NC.
We found Henry from Customer Review and chose him because of his high volume selling record. He didn't disappoint us. His knowledge helped us prepare our house for the market quickly. His patience made us comfortable to ask any kind of question a seller might have, which is very important. He stood up for us as a seller's advocate. I think he would do the same as a buyer's representative as well. We firmly believe that because of him, we were able to make our cross-country move in less than 2 months. I would highly recommend him.

Sold a home in 2014 in Scotts Hill, Wilmington, NC 28411.
Henry McEachern was very knowledgeable about everything that was asked of him. If there was a question that he did not have the answer to, he would find out, and get back to us in a very short time. He has a great work ethic, and if you call and have a question or concern he gets back the same day. I have moved to this area recently and he is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with. If anyone is looking for a home, business, land, ect. I would recommend Henry as the person to go to in Wilmington N.C. In my opinion he is the best of the best.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Wilmington, NC.
Henry was an amazing asset to us as we ventured into the world of home ownership. As both first time home buyers and new residents to the area, we had quite the array of questions. His background as a General Contractor proved to be most informative during the preliminary walk through and home inspection. Henry was very knowledgeable about the area and coached us through the entire process, from the first offer to the final contract; he has even called to check-up on us in the months following our closing.
Henry’s responsiveness, dependability, and positive disposition made him easy to correspond with and a joy to work alongside.

Henry was fantastic, we lived across the country and Henry took us on FaceTime tours and sent us videos since we couldn't be there. He was very thorough, kept us informed every step of the way, and helped coordinate with everyone involved. I would highly recommend Henry.

Bought a home in 2014.
Henry is very patient and knowledgable. He showed me well over 20 homes and treated each one like it was the first, if I had a question that he didn't have the answer to he got back to me promptly and when I did decide on a house he got it for $100000 below the asking price and seller paid the closing cost. The best agent I have ever worked with.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Leland, NC.
We recently purchased a 2nd home at the beach and Henry was our Realtor. He was so helpful in showing us a variety of properties so we could get a good feel for the area and the different price points. Henry was always on time, always had a smile on his face and an overall joy to work with. He is honest, hard working and very knowledgeable about the area. He is a former home builder and that came in handy on many occasions. His insight and knowledge of construction helped us tremendously.
I have used many real estate agents in the past and I can say that Henry is professional, honest, trustworthy and dependable.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Wrightsville Beach, NC.
Henry was very professional, very knowledgeable about the market, and very helpful about the process. He was easy to reach and quickly responded to all our requests. He handled all the negotiations and made the process much simpler for us. He has extensive knowledge of not only the market but also of home construction, and was very helpful throughout the inspection and negotiations. He has a strong marketing presence online that helped market our home outside of the local MLS. I would highly recommend Henry to someone for their real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Wilmington, NC.
I can't say enough about Henry's professionalism and experience. He sold our home within a couple of weeks during a time when the market was flooded with homes for sale. He always made himself available to answer any questions we had and kept us informed about the status of our sale. He is a very kind and caring person. I would highly recommend him!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Wilmington, NC.
Being first time home owners was a very scary thought. However, Henry made that process much easier then anticipated. We were looking for a home between Jacksonville and Wilmington and Henry was willing to travel to any town in between to show us a house. When looking at a home there are so many details to think about and you don't always remember to look at every single thing. Henry was there right beside us pointing out some of the things we were forgetting to take into consideration. His knowledge about the real estate market was so helpful. Even more helpful was his knowledge about the structure and building aspect of the process. He was able to point out both positive and negative aspects of the homes. When dealing with the builder of our home, we had a few bumps in the road. Henry was always there to help straighten things out. The information he shared with us helped us make our decision to buy the home that we did. We could not be thankful enough for all of his help. I would highly recommend allowing Henry to assist you in the process of buying/selling a home!!

Bought a home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Caswell Beach, NC.
We were first time home buyers last year and Henry made what could have been a very challenging and nerve-racking experience, very enjoyable! He made himself available for any and all questions we had and also set up appointments for showings immediately upon request. Not only his knowledge of the market/area, but also his expertise on the structural/building aspects of the homes made and still makes him a very valuable resource! We are proud owners of our dream home because of Henry!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Kirkland, Wilmington, NC.
Words can't express how much it's meant to us to have Henry McEachern as a realtor. Initially, we enlisted his help to sell our first home and not only did he get the job done, but he made the process so smooth and easy. As a former contractor and very experienced realtor, Henry has a wealth of knowledge about home building, buying and selling, so we were really able to "lean on him" for his advice. On a personal note, as my wife and I have said many times over the last couple months, Henry is a really good guy. He truly cares about our family.
We were so impressed with Henry's services that we recommended him to my mother-in-law who was looking to buy a condo in the area and he got the job done for her too! Since the sale of our home, we've decided to build a new home and we're working with Henry again on securing our dream lot.
If you're looking for an attentive, professional and hard-working realtor, you won't find anyone in the area better for the job than Henry McEachern.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Carolina Beach, NC.
Purchased a condominium in Wrightsville Beach. Henry was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. The first few agents we contacted were with well known agencies in town but were very slow and some did not respond at all. Henry is honest and helpful. We never felt pressured. Since we did not know the community very well, Henry's knowledge of the area was of great benefit. He was very patient as we narrowed down our search. We also liked that Henry showed us range of properties that helped us quickly narrow down the type of property and area we wanted to locate. Also, Henry's experience as a contractor gives him a unique perspective on construction issues. He was able to explain all the construction techniques we saw and answer our questions. I have worked with many real estate people over the years and Henry was by far the most professional and helpful.

Bought a home in 2012 in Wilmington, NC 28480.
Henry was a pleasure to work with. He was not only very knowledgeable, professional, responsive, energetic, and creative, he is a wonderful person that made the home shopping experience totally pleasureable. Henry had previous experience as a home contractor, so he had great insights on the constuction of the homes we visited. He also went above and beyond the call of duty after we closed on the house providing us with various contractors (lawn service, cleaning service, security companies) all of which turned out to be excellent providers.
Henry was without compare the best realtor my wife and I have ever worked with over the past 30 years. I would give Henry my highest recommendation!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.15M in Wrightsville Beach, NC.
Henry worked diligently and efficiently in helping me find a new home, all while I was out of state. He tirelessly searched the area to find the right property that met my extremely narrow requirements, and met me on a weekend to show me the properties he had arranged to show. Not only was he an expert in the real estate world, Henry is gifted in people skills that so many other agents lacked. I would highly recommend Henry to any potential buyer in the Wilmington area.

Bought a home in 2013.
He's a pro and a southern gentleman - personable, listens intently, and goes to bat for you. Having a background in home construction came in very handy on a number of occasions when working with our home builder. For example, we were partially sold on trey ceilings in the bedrooms. During construction, we found they'd removed this feature. Henry negotiated with the builders to provide hardwood stairs and landing to the 2nd floor at no cost in exchange.

Bought a home in 2012 in Barlowes, NC 28443.
This was our first home purchase and we were nervous about the whole process. We just started a family and had an infant baby girl which pushed us to try and find a house fast. Henry understood our situation and helped us find a house that was perfect for us and for a good price. He responded promply to all my questions and was truly helpful. I would recommend Henry if you want an honest realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Wilmington, NC.
We chose Henry based on web reviews and we're very happy with our choice. Not only was Henry great to work with, his knowledge of Wilmington and the housing real estate was impressive. This was especially important to us as we were moving to Wilmington from out of state. Henry not only helped us long distance in buying the house, but afterward as well.
Henry's experience in housing and construction as well as lawn and gardening was invaluable to us. Patience is another virtue Henry possesses. Dealing with picky buyers from out of town was not easy, but we always felt we got all the attention we needed.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Wilmington, NC.
Henry listed my home for sale and also helped me find a new one. With the market being the way it is, we worked together for about a year and Henry always gave his best effort and advice. Once my home was under contract, he showed me as many properties as I asked to see...and I asked to see ALOT! He worked around my schedule, showing properties on weekends and evenings as needed. His experience in the construction industry was invaluable, as he could advise on what a remodel of a home would involve and an approximate cost, as well as recommend reliable contractors. He didn't hesitate to tell me if he thought a house was not suitable and didn't push just to try and get me to buy. Henry is honest, dependable, knowledgeable and great to work with. I have sold and bought many homes in the past, and I can honestly say that Henry's professionalism and dedication far surpasses any realtor I worked with before.

My husband and I highly recommend Henry for your home buying/selling needs. I don’t feel like I am able to express how much I appreciate what Henry has done for us. He provided us with exceptional realtor service. He went above and beyond to provide us with the real estate knowledge we needed to make a solid purchase. Henry was on top of every detail when it came to shopping around all the way to the day of closing. He was always patient with us and made sure we were happy at every turn. Henry truly knows the business and the market.

Sold a home in 2011 in Winter Park, Wilmington, NC 28403.
Henry helped me purchase a new home recently and I was very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. Henry was always prompt for our appointments. Because of his construction experience and knowledge of the area, he was able to provide valuable information concerning the different properties we visited. Once I decided on a particular property, Henry was able to provide contacts to assist in the closing of the property. I was pleased with the level of service Henry provided and will do business with him in the future.

We worked with Henry from out of town and He was amazing! We had no knowledge of the Wilmington, NC area and were 500 miles away. We explained our likes and dislikes and he had plenty of wonderful suggestions and ideas. We love the area, the neigborhood, and schools Henry suggested and are very happy! He made the experience easy and fun. We would recommended Henry McEachern to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $250K in Wilmington, NC.
Mr McEachern was a buyers agent for my last home purchase. My wife and I were relocating from the west coast and we couldn't have done it without Henry. Coming from 2500 miles away presents some unique challenges and possible pitfalls. Henry was with us throughout the entire process, insuring every detail was covered without a hitch. His expertise as an agent and as a former builder, saved us from making a number of mistakes and his knowledge of the Wilmington market helped us to negotiate a fantastic deal on exactly the property we wanted. His follow up is flawless, his attention to detail exceptional, and his professionalism and demeanor without peer. I would recommend anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell in the Wilmington, NC area to call Henry McEachern. When you do, you will have selected the best real estate professional in this market or any other !!
