Norwalk native, Annette Wilcox, takes pride in being a leader in the real estate market in her local community. Annette has lived in Norwalk, Ohio, most of her life, except for the time she was a military wife, while her husband served in the United States Navy. When she is not spending time with her husband and kids, she is heavily involved in her community, always trying to attend local events and contribute to local businesses. Being a female business owner herself, she puts a strong emphasis on other female business owners building one another up.
Outside of real estate, Annette is a proud mom of six children: three daughters and three sons and has been married to her high school sweetheart for over 30 years now. Her husband was her biggest supporter when she delved into real estate back in 2011 and joined the Century 21 family.
Upon gaining her real estate license, the market was at its lowest and manifested the highest unemployment rate in the state. Most homes being sold were foreclosures. Starting out in a down market pushed her to aggressively market herself and the services she could provide. The focus was entirely on expanding her footprint in the market which led her on the path to becoming Rookie of the Year and receiving the Quality Producer Award, all within her first year of becoming a REALTOR®. Annette now does it all – commercial, residential, multiple unit properties, and vacant property sales – but has never had a nice price point. She once sold an $8,000 mobile home and a $1,000,000 property within the same month.
In 2015, Annette branched out and became an owner herself. Century 21 Wilcox & Associates now has two different office locations, in Norwalk and in Fremont, Ohio. In the last few years, Wilcox & Associates has grown to 16 motivated agents, who currently serve clients in five different counties.
With a strong emphasis on training and maintaining a strong workplace culture, Wilcox & Associates is thriving in its market. “It’s good to know where you’re going and how you’re going to get there,” Annette explains. “I place on emphasis on finding dedicated agents who are looking for a family style work atmosphere.”
Annette now travels nationally to give motivational speeches and continue to teach social media and Facebook marketing classes in her local community. She has also been featured multiple times on Darryl Davis' national radio show, The Power Program. Annette was the former president of the Century 21 Greater Ohio Broker Council, is current vice president of the L.I.F.T., and sits on the Huron County Metro Housing Authority board as president.
