We are so proud to announce that one of our own, Eric Lank, New Home Consultant in our Sunset Ridge Community for over 12 years, has been named by South Brunswick Magazine – the “Future 10” of 2019. It’s no secret to all of us at Bill Clark Homes that Eric is truly an asset to our organization.
Read all about his journey to us and with us below:
“Eric Lank is both inspired by the growth of Brunswick County and heartened by the nostalgic character of Sunset Beach that “reminds a lot of people of the beaches they grew up going to.” It’s the small town feel that first attracted him to the area. Lank grew up in Pennsylvania, but he and his wife, Kim, vacationed here while they were college students at Penn State. After graduating, they decided to make the move to Brunswick County a permanent one in 2002 and are now raising their two daughters, McKenzie and Mya.
Lank helps others find their own slice of paradise in the area. As the new home consultant for Sunset Ridge, a Bill Clark Homes community in Ocean Isle Beach, he not only helps homebuyers find their forever home, but also promotes all that Brunswick County has to offer — especially for retirees, since that’s the majority of his clients.
“I love talking with people who are considering moving to our area about how much Brunswick County has to offer,” Lank says. “From the restaurants to the beaches to golf to a much more laid-back lifestyle. And, of course, lower taxes are good too!”
From day one, before the first house was constructed, Lank has been with Bill Clark Homes. His first career stop was as a seventh-grade science teacher at Shallotte Middle School. But after friends and his wife began getting involved in real estate, he left the classroom and switched careers. Now, 12 years later, the Sunset Ridge community has almost sold out, and thanks to Lank and the Sunset Ridge team, more than 350 homeowners have their dream homes.
As the face of the Sunset Ridge community, Lank feels that he’s not only helped people find homes, but also created friendships. In his position he enjoys meeting diverse people with many different life experiences. From “law enforcement to teachers to entrepreneurs, they all come with unique stories,” he says.
Lank’s Future 10 nomination has him feeling honored and part of a community. “To be thought of as someone who is qualified for this type of recognition is amazing,” he says. “There is such a sense of unity here; everyone supporting one another. Everybody looks after one another. That’s what community means.”
