William “Bill” Gralton has a discerning eye for both real estate and fine art. He began
his real estate career in the late 1980’s in Taos, New Mexico where he also owned an
art gallery. Bill discovered Southport several years later when he was searching for an
area offering an ideal coastal lifestyle and describes the area as “Cape Cod without the
crowds and cold weather.”
“Southport and the Brunswick County area checked so many boxes that are important
to me… a mild climate, uncrowded beaches and wonderful waterways for boating
kayaking, and fishing. Add in golf and an historic town with a strong arts, music and
theatre community…it’s nearly perfect.” Prior to joining RE/MAX Southern Coast, Bill worked exclusively in St. James working
with the developer, high-end builders as well as with resale properties. “There are very
few agents who have the depth of experience working in St. James and know the
community as I do. Joining RE/MAX Southern coast has only enhanced my abilities by
providing the up-to-date tools necessary in today’s real estate marketplace. They not
only have access to exceptional national marketing, but the local owners believe in
staying ahead of the curve using the most relevant technology and marketing strategies
to enable our clients, both buyers and sellers, to successfully accomplish their goals.” Bill chose his profession at an early age earning a degree in Marketing with an
emphasis in Real Estate. “I was always fascinated by the real estate marketplace and
have now been a broker for more than 30 years. So, whether my client is listing their
home or are dreaming of living in Southport, Oak Island or St. James, I offer the
experience, knowledge and professionalism to make the process work seamlessly.”
In his free time, Bill enjoys time on the water, boating and kayaking. He also golfs and
likes to read. He has two daughters who grew up locally and a “very special” young
