Welcome to Wilgus

The growth story of Wilgus Associates can be traced back to its origins as a staff of one in a one room insurance office located on the boardwalk in the Bethany Beach Bowling Alley. Since that humble and simple beginning, Wilgus Associates has grown to include two offices in Sussex County that offer a wide array of real estate and insurance services and now employs a staff of over fifty.

We were very fortunate to have worked with Wilgus Associates in the purchase of our Bethany Proper Townhome in January 2019.  We would like to give a special thanks to our Realtor and Rental Manager, Charissa Joachimowski, for making the purchase and settlement of our vacation rental property a smooth and enjoyable experience.
There were numerous tasks needed to initially prepare and list our home into becoming a weekly seasonal rental.  In addition to Charissa, many Wilgus staff in the Rental, Property Management and Insurance departments were all extremely helpful and professional in assisting and supporting us in this effort.
We also are very satisfied that we decided to have a virtual You-Tube video created of our property. In addition to pictures, the video tour provides a flow throughout our home to give the viewer a better understanding of the layout in determining whether our home will meet their vacation rental needs.
We are very happy to be working with the Wilgus staff and highly recommend their services.

Wilgus Reviews

“2019 was my first rental year with Wilgus Associates. I was more than satisfied with the rental success achieved. The customer service I received from the Rental Department was superb. The You Tube Video that was produced was excellent and a wonderful marketing tool that complimented the other market strategies in place when renting through Wilgus Associates.”   - Gary Bauer  32 Indian Harbor Villas , October 4, 2019
