Each Personally & Professionally Connected To Bald Head Island
Many visitors to Bald Head Island describe an immediate connection, the sense of having found a place that feels like home. Some rent year after year, while others purchase a vacation home, escaping to the island as often as possible. And then, there are those who choose to make it their primary residence.
Bald Head Island Limited Real Estate Sales Executives Jennifer Van Ness, David Wray and Lindsay Farris have found their own sense of place here, where their personal and professional passions happily coexist.
Jennifer Van Ness
Jennifer and her husband Jim took their first ferry ride to the island in 2006 and fell in love with Bald Head. They knew having a place here would be a wonderful gift for their family that would create a lifetime of memories, and promptly returned a week later to purchase a vacation home. They continued to raise their two children, Ashton and Hank, in Richmond, Virginia, where Jennifer had a successful real estate career for more than 15 years, enjoying their island home whenever schedules would allow.
With a spirit of adventure that harkened back to Jennifer’s college experience of sailing across the Atlantic, the family embarked on another great adventure in 2015: making Bald Head Island their permanent home. Because Jennifer is totally immersed in the island, she is able to beautifully balance her commitment to her clients and time with her family. She loves helping others give the gift of Bald Head to their families.
David stepped on a ferry in 2004 to come to the island we call paradise and has been a property owner ever since. In addition to his degree in Real Estate and Urban Analysis from Appalachian State University, he is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and an Accredited Buyer’s Representative, as well as a member of the Residential Real Estate Council. David provides outstanding service throughout your real estate transaction and beyond.
In 2014, he joined the Bald Head Island Limited Real Estate Sales team, where he enjoys spending time with guests and visitors, telling them about the island. He serves on several boards on the island and enjoys volunteering. Having a passion for the water, he enjoys walking the docks talking to folks passing through on boats. He knows building relationships is the key to his success.
Lindsay has been with Bald Head Island Limited Real Estate Sales since 2015 and was instantly enchanted by the island’s peaceful setting and charm. From her roots in the foothills of North Carolina to her alma mater of UNC-Charlotte, Lindsay finally made the East Coast her home in 2006. Excellent management and customer service abilities influenced Lindsay’s passion for helping island lovers make Bald Head their home. Her dedication for going the extra mile with her clients makes for smooth transitions into longtime friendships.
Lindsay resides in downtown Southport and can be found walking her dog, Lucille, along the waterfront or fishing in the creeks off the Cape Fear River. She says commuting by ferry is one of the best parts of the job, as getting there is half the fun!
