Speakers and Presenters

Jumpstart Logo

The success of Jumpstart Wilmington is dependent on the experienced real estate professionals that volunteer their time to share their experience and insights with new developers--during training, at networking events and as mentors. Our dynamic team of presenters share a broad base of knowledge of the local real estate market and deep involvement in Wilmington neighborhoods. They share the goal of Jumpstart Wilmington, and each has a passion for community and economic development issues such as tackling blight, slowing gentrification, keeping resources and capital in the neighborhood, and engaging community residents in impacting their neighborhoods.

We're grateful to our team of presenters!
