On Sunday, March 8th, people around the world celebrated International Women’s Day and their achievements.
And what better way to focus women’s successes than to look to female entrepreneurs that are doing big things here in Wilmington?
Head to Toe Spa and Salon has been operating in Wilmington for over 20 years, and the more recent Head to Toe Med Spa portion for seven. Lynn, Lexanne, and Mollie are experts in business, beauty, and relaxation. According to Lynn, relaxation has always been a part of our mission for the combining communities of Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach, so we felt it would only be more attractive to add in a Med Spa. The response from our clients has made it possible for us to give even more back to the community with a beautiful, fresh new space.
That’s where the team at SAMM Properties comes into play. SAMM Properties allows many local businesses the opportunity to have their own slice of Wilmington real estate. As Lynn explains, “there aren’t many developments or current spaces that allow you to do so. So, when we realized that we could purchase and have our own space, we jumped at the opportunity.”
This trio, made up of two biological siblings and one honorary sister, now have the best of both worlds as they move into their new space at Bradley Creek Station. Because they understand how essential location is for their business, they chose a central location that is key in continuing to grow their business. Their new spot “is such a happy medium. We are only two to three minutes from our current space, yet just a bit closer to Midtown, Downtown, and Carolina Beach.”
However, a contributor to the final decision for the spa owners was seeing “the plans for the contemporary, modern aesthetics of the exterior. We knew it was the perfect fit for us. The “now” look, but yet timeless in taste.” And that is precisely the look that SAMM Properties is offering with this new building. The 80,000 square foot, three-story structure is full of modern style, contemporary aesthetics, and an upscale ambiance. As a busy professional with an eye for design and an appreciation for style, Lynn loved the fresh and fashionable look of Bradley Creek Station but ultimately chose SAMM Properties because they understood her business’s needs and vision.
Not only did SAMM Properties and Head to Toe have similar design style ideas, but both companies also have goals and ideals that align heavily with customer relationships and a visualization for the future. “In our business, our clients love the services that we offer, but more importantly, they love the relationship that they are able to build with us. That is what makes them lifetime clients. SAMM Properties offers the same relationship. They listen; they make you feel like you matter. We can be a lot to deal with, and not once did the let their patience falter,” Lynn explains.
Parker Anderson, of SAMM Properties, is excited about the future of Bradley Creek Station and feels the same way about many of the new tenants, including Head to Toe. “We are very excited for our community about the quality of businesses that will be occupying Bradley Creek Station. Each business coming to Bradley Creek Station has had a profound impact already in our community and we are grateful for their trust in bringing the vision of Bradley Creek Station to reality.”

“Working with SAMM Properties was so easy. They anticipated what I needed before I even thought of it. I never had to ask any questions about the process. Everything was explained in detail all along the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking to lease or purchase space for their business.”
“After renting my office space for 20 years we purchased our medical office space from SAMM Properties four years ago. Best business decision I've ever made! SAMM is easy to work with and they over deliver. I highly recommend them.”
“Steve Anderson is a quality person, who builds a quality product, and makes the entire process a quality experience. He knows what owners want and need in a commercial property. I have purchased two units in Howe Creek Landing and have been delighted.”
“We worked with Steve Anderson on the lease of our office space in Mayfaire. We were thrilled with the final outcome and look, all beyond our expectation. What we appreciate most was his communication, attention to detail, and delivery of expected results and then some within the expected time frame.”
“My wife and I were leasing space for our retail store here in Wilmington and Steve approached us about purchasing space in Phase II of Anderson Square. Since we had always wanted to own our store space, we actively pursued purchasing a location in Anderson Square. I had known Steve for a number of years but had never had a business relationship with him. I was not surprised at all to find that it was an absolute pleasure to deal with him as our new location was being built. He was always available to help in any way he could to be a problem solver during the construction. I had been expecting a lot of hassles during the build as the gremlins seem to thrive around construction sites, but my experience was the opposite. If I needed help or advice, Steve was right there smoothing the way.
We opened our new location in 2004 and I worked closely with Steve until he sold his interest in Anderson Square in 2016. During those years, I found him to be very concerned about the welfare of all the store owners in the center and was constantly picking up trash, hanging Christmas decorations or driving through to check on any parking problems. Steve is the type of developer that remains involved in his projects long after they are completed. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to own or lease a portion of any project he is building.”
