Chris was born in Long Island, NY and moved to NC with his family in 2010 after falling in love with the Wilmington area while on vacation. He continues to be amazed at all that the area has to offer: surfing, fishing, boating, biking, amazing beaches, parks, friendly people, laid back attitude, golf courses and the culture and vibe of Downtown Wilmington.
Chris has a degree in Aerospace Technology from SUNY Farmingdale and obtained his pilot’s license at the Florida Institute of Technology. By the age of 23, he created a successful retail business and his stores quickly became the go-to place to shop among the surf, snow and skate crowd. Since moving to Wilmington, he’s taken that drive and dedication to launch a successful real estate career. His in-depth knowledge and professionalism help to ensure that his clients find their dream homes in this paradise location. Chris has also renovated several investment properties and can bring that experience to clients looking to purchase rental homes.
In his spare time, Chris enjoys surfing, fishing, biking, and spending time with his wife and daughter. He looks forward to showing you all the reasons why he fell in love with the Wilmington and related beach areas. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"Chris was so helpful to us when we were trying to buy a condo in North Carolina.He had the answers to all our questions which definitely helped with the transaction. Additionally he told us about the area. Where the banks and food stores were and all the good restaurants. Chris was always available. I liked that he always answered his phone even if it was late at night or on the weekend. We did buy that condo and we are thinking of buying an investment property on the beach next year and when we do we plan on using Chris."
"Chris was wonderful to work with while trying to find a new home. I had certain criteria and Chris was very patient and took my needs into consideration. We looked at many houses and he always had a smile on his face no matter how many we had looked at. I highly recommend him, he is very knowledgeable and is an asset to anyone looking for a house."
"Chris made selling our home and then purchasing a condo so easy and worry free. We never had to call him to ask "what's going on". His communication with us was spot on, either by phone, text or e-mail he kept us informed. With selling our home, he used professional photos and advertising, our house looked so good we had second thoughts. The purchase of our condo was with the same professionalism. He really listened to what we were looking for, and showed us many choices. Chris is someone we would recommend to anyone who wants a purchase property. He made if easy and worry free."
"Chris knew what I wanted in a home and when the right conditions presented themselves, he immediately contacted me with the full details of the potential sale. He also knew the price range I was willing to pay and skillfully negotiated the price to within my range. He accompanied me on the inspection of the home and helped to clarify any questions or issues that I had with the homeowners. Chris even helped to rectify an omission that I failed to make known during the initial contract, specifically including major appliances to remain without additional cost. Highly recommend Chris to be your Agent."

"Chris helped us to quickly get our home on the market, then helped us negotiate with the buyers so that we were under contract in less than a week and the sale closed on time. Additionally, Chris worked patiently with us as we searched for a new beach home to purchase. He went above and beyond to help us through our due diligence period and helped us secure the home at the best price possible."
"Chris was very helpful to me with my move. He showed concern for my search for a new house, but he was not constantly checking with me about when i was going to move. He is a very friendly realtor."
"For me, Chris Santucci was the perfect agent. I found him to be very personable and professional, and he possesses excellent negotiation skills. He was very responsive to my phone calls, emails and texts and is very knowledgeable about the local areas. In addition, Chris is very patient and calm, something I definitely need in a real estate agent! I would highly recommend Chris for all of your real estate needs!"
"In 2014 I was named the executrix of my children grandfather's estate, which included two real estate properties that had to be sold. I do not live in the area, and was not familiar with any realtors. Chris Santucci was recommended to me by a close friend of the family's. I listed both properties with Chris, and depended on his expertise. One of the properties needed some minor repairs, and Chris was able to assist with recommending contractors, and meeting with them and getting quotes, and most importantly ensuring they were done correctly and as promised. Chris was always available to answer any concerns or questions I had regarding the sales. Both properties have been sold now, and without his willingness and assistance, this would have been a much more difficult situation. I highly recommend Chris, and would certainly list another property with him."
"Chris made this home purchase as easy and seamless as possible. He's knowledge of the area and the market were instrumental in getting us the best deal possible."

"Chris was helpful throughout helping us to narrow our picks to go see, offering us homes to see we had not noticed, helping us to get Mortgage broker options.

"Chris was everything we could have hoped for in a realtor. We looked for a house for nearly two years before finally purchasing. Chris was always happy to show us anything we wanted and always gave an honest opinion on a property. We never felt that we were troubling him despite our indecision. He can give useful insight into options for remodeling and rearranging spaces if you are considering that route. He patiently guided us through the negotiation and purchase process. I would give Chris my highest recommendation to anyone looking to buy in the Carolina Beach area."
