Hi, I’m Paula! My husband and I just moved to Wilmington after living in Alexandria VA for most of our lives. We visited Wilmington for the first time in April of 19 and fell in love with it. I immediately began searching for our first Airbnb ownership opportunity. Within a few months we purchased what is now known as Elephant on Market. Fast forward a year, and after spending lots of time at the condo visiting, the pandemic hits and now we can work from anywhere. So we threw caution to the wind and decided to buy a historic home in downtown Wilmington. Talk about an adventure. We are now in the midst of a pretty substantial restoration project just a few blocks from the condo. The house was built in 1853 by the same architect as the Bellamy Mansion. It's been a lot of work but will be AMAZING when it's done. Please hit me up if you want to come over for a tour or a cocktail while you are visiting. I’m fun and easy going and really love meeting new people on my adventures. My favorite things in the world are music, animals, photography, and interior design. I especially love the beach and am completely obsessed with my French bulldog Atlas. Oh, and I love coffee and foodie stuff and WINE! I also have a passion for real estate and would love to learn additional languages. Speaking Spanish would really come in handy. Come stay at Elephant on Market. Paula Warren
