Aissa Wiggins is a veteran in the hospitality industry, serving for more than 18 years working for Chambers, tourism bureaus and casinos. She began her career in the tourism and gaming industry in Natchez and in 2006, she was recruited to move to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to serve as group sales manager for the Silver Slipper Casino. In her position there, she was responsible for marketing the Coast bringing thousands of visitors to the region through the group tour market. One of her best attributes is her ability to work across the board with a wide variety of clients from bus operators to residential and commercial prospects. Her passion for “house hunting” turned into a new career for Aissa when she joined the team at John McDonald Realty in 2016. Less than a year later, Aissa had not only earned the respect of her peers as a top producing real estate agent, but she also obtained the designation as an accredited buyer’s representative. Her commitment to the Coast does not stop there. She is active throughout the county serving on the board of directors for the Hancock County Community Development Foundation raising funds through charity events to support more than 20 community causes. And, she also provides leadership to the Hancock Library Foundation. Aissa is one of the founders of the Hancock Chamber Relocation Committee that spear-headed the inaugural Parade of Homes showcasing 38 residential homes for sale throughout the County. In 2011, the Hancock Chamber recognized her for her leadership as one of the Top 10 Outstanding Citizens.
