“Twenty-two years as full-time residents on Bald Head. WOW! Have Jane and I been blessed or what?”
I am originally from Georgia but have been a N.C. resident since 1976 and discovered Bald Head Island when my career in medical packaging materials brought me to Wilmington. The incredible trees, landscape and how the development just blends into the natural surroundings was and remains the hook that caught me. My wife, Jane, retired Executive Director of the Old Baldy Foundation, and I have made Bald Head Island into our “home town”. I love the nature of the island and truly enjoy helping people make the Bald Head Island lifestyle part of their lives. As an instrument rated private pilot, I am privileged to fly animal rescue flights for Pilots n Paws and conservation related flights for SouthWings, where I was recently awarded “Honorary Emeritus” pilot status.
“Such a great buying experience with BHI Ltd Real Estate Sales and specifically Doug Oakley. Doug knew what I wanted before I did! He really took the time to help me understand the island buying process and provided great insight into the variety of properties available. I would highly recommend Doug. He’s knowledgeable, fair, and asks great questions to help you navigate the selection process. If you want a house on BHI, see Doug!” – Brenda Erickson
“Our initial impression of Doug that day was nothing short of fantastic… Doug knows the market well, and we felt like his guidance was instrumental in helping us balance our “gut feel” of what we liked with a smart & sensible location on the island. Beyond his professionalism, Doug is trustworthy, and we felt like we got to know him personally as the buying process moved on. He has a “stop the world from spinning for the sake of the client” mentality, and we were repeatedly impressed by the Wow moments we experienced from start to finish…” – Chris & Heather Elmore
