April Shepard Joins RE/MAX Essential as New Sales Associate and Director of Assistant Services

April Shepard, RE/MAX Essential

Wilmington, NC, December 8th, 2023 – RE/MAX Essential has announced that Realtor® April Shepard is the latest addition to the growing real estate franchise. Shepard brings to the office more than 4 years of local real estate experience.

“I’m excited to join the most productive real estate network in the U.S. and heighten the buying and selling experience for my clients,” Shepard said. “With the economy improving, it’s a great time to buy real estate. The Cape Fear area is in high demand, homes are selling quickly and I’m here to help guide members of the community through the exciting and sometimes overwhelming process.”

“As a proud North Carolina native, I’ve called Duplin and Pender County home for most of my life, immersing myself in the unique beauty and vibrant community of the region since I was 14. Amidst a brief stay in Raleigh and Durham, my heart has always been rooted in the charm of these counties.

Beyond the realm of real estate, I find immense joy in my role as a dedicated wife to my husband Rodney, and a loving mother to our three beautiful children, Lacey, Molly, and Carson. Our family moments, whether spent camping, fishing, hiking, or enjoying the coastal breeze at the beach, are treasures that I hold dear. Family is at the core of my happiness.

Active involvement in our local church is another significant aspect of my life, where my husband and I contribute in various roles. This commitment to community extends seamlessly into my real estate business, where I bring a passion cultivated over 21 years as a preschool teacher and director. The connection with children and families is a lifelong thread that weaves into every client relationship, turning transactions into meaningful journeys.

Since obtaining my real estate license in 2019, I’ve pursued continuous growth and education, earning designations such as ABR, AHWD, C2EX, PSA, and SFR. The desire to expand my knowledge and evolve within my business is a driving force in my professional journey. I take pride in the fact that my clients become an extended part of my family, and I am dedicated to delivering exceptional service with a personal touch.”

In addition to her role in serving her clients in sales, she is also stepping into the role as Director of Assistant Services. “We’re so excited to have April take over the reins of this vital role within our organization. Our excellent realtors lean heavily on our assistant services department and we have no doubt that April will be an exceptional asset to our firm.”
