Selling Your Home in Dilworth? 

The historic Dilworth neighborhood is located in Charlotte, NC just south of Uptown.

The neighborhood began as Charlotte's first streetcar suburb and was established by Edward Dilworth Latta in the 1890s on 250 acres just southwest of the original city limits. He originally called it the Eighth Ward because its grid pattern closely resembled that of the original four wards in the city.

Between 1987 and 2000, 1,389 buildings in Dilworth landed on the National Register of Historic Places. This part of the neighborhood is now known as the Dilworth Historic District.

“The team did an incredible job putting my place on the market and getting it sold quickly. Great service! Very responsive and competitive with rates. I loved the constant communication on when my home was being shown and as there were offers. I live out of state so it was great having a realtor I could trust.”

“We are thrilled with the level of service that Nancy Braun and her co-agent Jessica Sinski gave us when they sold our home! They are an excellent team! They did an open house for starters and booked many showings each day. They got our home under contract within a few days! We ran into some unexpected issues when our home was inspected that lead to our buyers backing out of their contract without even allowing us to see the report so Nancy immediately gave us a list of contractors and businesses to call upon to assess our issues.

Then she turned around and got two more contracts on our home within 24 hours from people who had made previous offers! All the various work that needed to be done was very swift and the next inspection went great thanks to the pros Nancy referred us to. The beauty of having two agents to deal with enabled us to have a constant open line of communication through phone calls and emails that made the experience of selling a home a very pleasant one!”
