Halloween in Landfall

Posted by

Only two days until Halloween! Harborway Drive and Turnberry Lane in Landfall are known as a popular place to be on Halloween night. With over 400 people trick-or-treating on these two streets, its always fun for neighbors to see each other.

It all started about fifteen years ago when Harborway Drive was home to a few families who had multiple children that would trick-or-treat on their street. As more families moved onto Harborway and Turnberry the streets attracted attention and became a common place to trick-or-treat in Landfall. Now on Halloween the street is filled with witches, monsters, Disney characters, and superheroes running from house to house eager to fill their bags with candy.

We hope that wherever you spend your Halloween that you have a fun and safe night!

Happy Halloween!

Landfall Realty’s Tip of the Day!

Posted by

Here is a tip to get the musty/damp odor out of your home after a lot of rain.

-Remove filters from all return vents

-Turn the fan to the “on” position rather than “auto” on your thermostat

-With the fan running spray Lysol for about 30-45 seconds in the return vent. You should be able to see the Lysol being pulled in the vent and smell it throughout the home. Make sure Lysol penetrates all duct work

-Turn the fan back to the “auto” position. You don’t want the fan running too long in the “on” position since the Lysol needs to remain in the duct work to help reduce any mold or mildew that may be in the system.

Pink Ribbon Luncheon

Posted by

The 18th annual Pink Ribbon Luncheon was held at the Wilmington Convention Center last Thursday, and Landfall Realty was proud to sponsor a table to support the cause. Close to 600 people attended the luncheon including Landfall realtors, Becky Spivey, Amy Neathery, Martie Davy, and Alison Bernhart.

The fundraiser for the Pink Ribbon Project at New Hanover Regional Medical Center raises money so women without health insurance are able to have mammograms, and it provides comfort bags for men and women currently going through cancer treatment. Since the start of the charity over 7,000 mammograms have been provided.

Local news anchor for WECT, Francis Weller, started the event with a speech, followed by President and CEO of the hospital, Jack Barto, who spoke about the Pink Ribbon Project. For entertainment there was a silent auction and The St. Stephen AME Gospel Choir performed. The featured guest was author and breast cancer survivor Patti Callahan Henry who candidly spoke about her battle with cancer.

Beach to Battleship Triathlon

Posted by

Wilmington’s famous triathlon event is almost here! The Beach to Battleship full triathlon and half ironman take place October 17th. The race begins at Wrightsville Beach with the swimming portion, followed by biking through the town of Wilmington, and finally a run through downtown Wilmington, finishing at the boardwalk on the Cape Fear River.

Starting early Saturday morning at 7:30, the triathlon lasts all day. The event includes participants from the Wilmington area as well as contestants from all over the East Coast. These out of town contestants and their families are also beneficial to the community because they are bringing tourism and revenue to Wilmington.

Additionally, it’s exciting for Wilmington locals to support the participants during the day long triathlon by cheering them on. Whether it’s encouraging them at Wrightsville Beach for the morning swim, or holding signs for them as they complete the 56 or 112 mile bike ride, or joining the crowd at the finish line to cheer them to the end, the event is thrilling for everyone involved.
