Chip Wilson is a lifelong resident of the Charlotte area. He’s spent most of his adult life as a journalist, traveling through every nook and cranny of Gaston and Mecklenburg counties.
He has spent six years as an active real estate investor – buying, selling and renting houses through auctions, bank-owned sales and HUD foreclosures. It’s been profitable and a lot of fun – especially the discovering of not-so-pretty houses and getting them transformed into beautiful homes.

My passion has always been to take care of others…it’s just what I do. Real Estate allows me to do just that! I feel that providing the very best service is essentially about focusing on you (my Client) FIRST. This means being a good listener and communicator and ALWAYS focusing on my client’s best interest. Buying or selling a home comes with a lot of moving pieces and my mission is to make it as smooth as possible. I have moved many times within three different states and understand all the dynamics that go along with it. I would love the opportunity to guide you every step of the way! It would be my pleasure!
