Brunswick Forest

Hi, I’m Denis Symington, Lifestyle Consultant for Brunswick Forest.

As a native of “The Bronx,” New York, I grew up in a very Irish/Italian neighborhood where sitting on the stoop and playing stickball was a daily activity. In my high school, the “O” was either at the beginning or end of your last name! I fondly recall the unbelievable aromas coming from all the many bakeries, pizzerias and delis under the 238th St. EL train!

Life’s journey has taken me down a rather adventuresome road. I was in the U.S. Navy for six years on board a nuclear submarine traveling the seas and even surfacing at the North Pole. Years later, I finished my MBA in International Business and quickly joined a large IT firm close to Boston. Within months, they shipped me off to London for three years and then to Moscow for five years to head up Russia/CIS sales and distribution. International travel is a true passion of mine and I have visited over 32 countries and all seven continents.

Finally, the time came to leave the Northeast! I grew tired of high taxes, traffic, cost of living, more traffic, shoveling snow, and did I mention the taxes? I sought a more casual, cost effective place to call home. I found coastal paradise in Wilmington, North Carolina. I bought a house in 1992 and moved here full time in 2003.

Wilmington offered me the lifestyle for which I was looking. Minutes to the beach, Intracoastal Waterway and Downtown, it had it all. Most importantly, I can get REAL bagels, true NYC pizza and there are several Italian delis just minutes from my home! What else do you need?!

I hope you will consider visiting soon and discovering the great lifestyle that Wilmington and Brunswick Forest has to offer you and your family.

See “Ya’ll” soon!
