About Leila

Upon moving to North Carolina in 1989, I knew I found what I will always call 'Home'. I fell in love with NC and Wilmington quickly became my favorite town to visit. I relocated to Wilmington 7 years ago and work in the tourism industry. My passion is to promote tourism and that led me to purchase a couple downtown Wilmington condos so I can share my passion with visitors who choose to stay with us. On my free time, I enjoy fishing, running, going to the beach and of course enjoying our lovely downtown Historic District. I love calling Wilmington my home and want to share what Wilmington has to offer with you!

Leila purchased this condo in 2013

Why Leila chose Historic District

I purchased this condo and another condo a block away because I truly fell in love with Wilmington. Both condos I have are in Historic Buildings which was a huge draw for me. It has everything a large town has but with that small cozy town feeling. I LOVE being here, eating at our water front restaurants, our shops, watching movies being filmed and our lively night life. This is a close knit community and we all take care of each other. I feel so lucky to be a part of the vibrant and beautiful downtown scene.

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with this condo because it's in the heart of downtown Historic Wilmington, in the Historic Ahrens Building and has original features through out the interior including the hardwoods, window and exposed brick. It's an elegant and cozy getaway. Everything you can possibly want to do downtown, is all right out your front door literally. It's so convenient and I fell in love with the condo immediately.

Very, very nice.

  • 5 of 5

It was comfortable, cozy and ideally situated downtown. When you're in the bedroom, you hear nothing out on the street. To paraphrase Robin Williams on Canada: "A nice loft apartment over a great party."
