I wanted to look at condos on Lake Norman and inquired about them on their website. I immediately was greeted with an email by Pam and she was super nice. She was out of town on vacation so she had Sue show me some condos the next day, which was great. I eventually ended up working with Both Candice and Pam, who are both super nice and responsive. I am new to the area and they recommended and gave me a lot of information on where it would be best to live based on what I was looking for. I highly recommend using Lake Realty. Everyone there seems really nice, and you will be lucky if you get Pam or Candice as your realtor. Thanks again!

I met Sue over a year ago when I was looking to sell my home in North Charlotte. I received an advertisement about her services in the mail and contacted her shortly thereafter to obtain an estimate on my home. From the very beginning Sue was very positive and had a pleasant spirit. She was extremely professional during the selling process and was always available to answer my questions.

Several months after selling my home, Sue assisted me with purchasing another home in the Charlotte area. Buying my home was a very stressful process due to the low inventory market, but Sue was always willing to meet me, sometimes with short notice, if I came across a house that interested me. She guided me through each step of the closing process and followed up with the appropriate folks to ensure we stayed on track with our closing date.

Thank you so much Sue for all your help! I really appreciate it.

My wife and I came down to Huntersville from Long Island to purchase a home. We knew the area we wanted to move to and the price range we wished to buy a home. Before driving through the neighborhood, we saw a variety of homes that Sue provided for us. Each day we combed through a half dozen homes, highlighting to Mrs. Nichols the residences that interested us.

We came down to the neighborhood in early Spring. Sue was prepared and drove us to dozens of houses. Sue was very relaxed as we observed each home, rating the benefits of each residence. Sue gaves us suggestions when we saw drawbacks to any particular home.

The last place we looked at was the home of our dreams. We made an offer and a few months later, we relocated here outside the Charlotte area. We are enjoying our home, the walk through the neighborhood and the close proximity to the amenities in and around Charlotte. We thank Sue for introducing us to the area and for making the purchase such an easy transaction.

We decided on a family move from three different states in order to coalesce around my aging parents health care support and needs and focused on Mooresville/Iredell County area. My Parents, siblings and I had very different family and housing needs, not to mention timelines and budgets. Eloise Morano and Lake Realty made it happen for us seemlessly. She helped my brother and family identify a new construction neighborhood and builder close to his relocated business, found an ideal existing move-in ready house one street over for my parents who needed to have all their main living on the first floor and needed to be close to medical care and shopping as they don't drive much. My needs were much more specific for my partner and myself and Eloise found the perfect house on the lake that met and exceeded all of our expectations. All of this happened within one year of the group decision to move! The time, effort and attention to our personal needs that Eloise put in were phenomenal and made what could have been a very complicated and stressful situation go seemlessly from housing search to closing. I highly reccommend Eloise and Lake Realty!

My wife and I first called Lake Realty the day before arriving in the Charlotte area. Pam Dunlap took our call and was very gracious to accommodate our schedule as we gave her all of 24 hours to build out some appointments for us to look at homes on Lake Norman. She delivered an amazingly productive itinerary the next day! We circumvented the lake with her and toured 6 homes that were all legitimate potential candidates. Pam was very knowledgeable about the communities we visited and she shared great insights. We look forward to continuing to work with her and making a smart home purchase with her assistance.

We placed our Western PA home on the market in July 2014 and were planning to move closer to Pittsburgh, PA. However, after about a year on the market we decided to look into the Mooresville, NC area. Some time after that, we contacted Ana about a home she had listed online and from there, a great relationship began. We explained to Ana that our home was on the market for quite some time with no offers and we continued to reduce our price. Ana asked what we were looking for in a home and she began collecting information from us then immediately began sending us links to homes that matched our criteria in the Mooresville area. She was very proactive in keeping in touch with us through email and text messages even though we still hadn't received an offer.

Once we finally did accept an offer, we contacted Ana and made plans to head to NC to look at some homes. Ana lined up eight homes for our family to view and spent the entire day driving us from home to home and also showing us points of interest. She took us to other towns she thought we might like such as Davidson and Huntersville so we could see what other possibilities we had. At the end of the day we made an offer on one home but the sellers would not budge on the price so we left NC and headed back to PA. The next day we found another home in Huntersville and called Ana about it. But we were in PA and couldn't head back to NC for another couple weeks. So Ana volunteered to perform a video walk-through of the home complete with narration. She pointed out the that the home needed remodeling but it could be a good investment. After the inspection, we decided that it was too much work for us with a one-year old and we reluctantly had to let it go.

We were now 15 days into our PA home closing and needed to find a place quick. Ana lined up several more homes and I traveled back to NC alone to look at them. Ana found the perfect place for us (my wife had to take my word for it since she and my son were not able to travel to see the home) and we made an offer the same day.

After some haggling, we agreed on a price and Ana got the paperwork moving quickly. She guided us through every step and was very diligent to make sure everything was complete and correct since we only had 30 days to close before our PA home would be sold.

Once our family arrived at our new home, Ana made sure to contact my wife to find out if she liked the house since she was seeing it for the first time in person.

Ana made us feel like we were her only client and was always available to answer our questions. She truly wanted us to achieve our goals and put us in a home we loved. Thank you, Ana

My husband and I worked with Sue Nichols to find our dream home on Lake Norman - working with Sue was a dream! She listened to what we wanted in a home and showed us property that fit our needs. Sue is very professional, detailed and makes herself available for her clients.

Jennifer turned a stressful experience to a positive one, with her knowledge and persistence with getting things completed. She was ready to tackle any and all challenges that came up during the buying process and addressed my concerns in all areas. She went above and beyond to investigate and provide important information that was needed to help me make decisions. She is a wonderful, personable person and I would recommend her without a doubt. Thanks for helping me make my dream come true!


Vanessa Elliott

Vanessa Elliott

Vanessa, we wanted to take some time to thank you immensely for helping us to find our dream home here in North Carolina! From the very beginning back in June when we met with you on a visit here, we weren't even sure when we would be relocating from So. California. You stayed in touch with us and when we were ready to move forward, you assisted us in finding temporary housing and a moving storage facility for our household items. Not only that but you met the movers at the storage site and stayed with them as they unloaded our personal belongings into storage! We have never, ever heard of a real estate agent that does all of that for a client.

As soon as we arrived, we were on the road with you the very next day looking at potential properties. Even more helpful was your time in driving us around the Lake Norman area so we could become familiar with an area totally foreign to us. At the end of our housing tours with you we always received something back from you by that evening regarding whatever we had either discussed or had questions about that day in addition to any new listings. We often would say, "Wow Vanessa is working late tonight"! You very quickly came to understand what we were looking for and what we didn't particularly like and when you suggested we look at Denver at a home you had seen almost 8 months earlier that had come back on the market, you nailed it!! We absolutely love it!!!

In addition, we felt very at ease with you from the very beginning and not only did you help us to find our dream home but have become a good friend in the process!

While we realize your office likes to receive comments from your clients, we truly, truly could not have been more pleased with all you did to help us!! We couldn't be happier!

We were totally pleased with our experience working with Dennis Caudle of Lake Realty. He was with us throughout the entire process of selling our home, maintained a high level of communication and offered sound advice and counsel. Dennis is very detail-oriented and made sure the process was seamless, all the way to closing.

Dennis worked extremely hard to make sure the sale consummated smoothly. Every question was answered, great advice was given and he guided the transaction to closing with an experienced hand. It was a pleasure working with him.

We were moving from Maryland and had some friends in the Lake Norman area, who referred us to Lake Realty. Pam and her team worked diligently to find all of the possible lake-front homes that might satisfy our significant requirements. Pam spent endless hours arranging our tours and driving us all over Lake Norman. She thoroughly understands the Lake Norman real estate market, and provided valuable guidance and support. As a result of her hard work and substantial efforts, we finally found the perfect home and breezed through settlement. We highly recommend Pam and Lake Realty for all of your real estate needs.

Jennifer has been a wonderful to our family and a asset to her trade. She is no longer just our realtor but our friend and part of our family. She is a blessing. Words cannot really express how much we appreciate her and her family helping us to get our home. If you need a honest and caring realtor you won't go wrong choosing Lake Realty in Cornelius, NC.

Thank you, Jennifer

From our Family to Yours,

We used Marsha Marold from Lake Realty as our realtor last year when looking for our very first home. As Im sure it is with any home buying experience there were calm and stressful moments in the process, but Marsha was really great helping us navigate everything and educating us on the process as we went (having never before gone through it ourselves).

With her experience in the market, she was able to recommend or find recommendations for everything we would need (financing, legal, contractors for various estimates and work, etc.) and we really couldnt have been happier with those experiences as well. After some of the home-buying horror stories you hear out there, it was a pleasure working with everyone from start to finish during the process.

I highly recommend Marsha and the team at Lake Realty!

I am a Mortgage Banker with Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group. I had the pleasure of working with Vanessa just recently, and it was a fantastic experience! Vanessa was always quick to answer the phone, or return my phone calls. Most importantly, she made the process stress-free! When we experienced bumps in the road, Vanessa was quick to take the initiative to smooth everything out. I implore anyone who is in the process of searching for a home to consider Vanessa's services, and I sure hope to have the opportunity to work with her once again! Thank you Vanessa!

Martha is fantastic! She quickly understood what we were looking for in a home. She has a great deal of knowledge and familiarity with all three of the Lake Norman, Mountain Island and Lake Wylie areas including commercial aspects and development plans. She was very professional and made the search process so enjoyable. We would highly recommend Martha to anyone looking for an agent.


Eric Morrison

Jennifer was great to work with. We had limited knowledge of LKN and we literally looked all over the lake. She was very patient and helped us narrow our search criteria until we found what we think to be the perfect property. She isn't pushy or "salesy" and doesn't give the impression she wants to make a sale simply for the commission. She truly wants to help you find the right property and for her buyers to be happy. She spent multiple hours working with Lincoln Co on our septic permit/requirements and then in-turn educating us on the same. I am sure there were times she believed we were never going to find something because we weren't always the easiest to deal with but she always remained highly optimistic and professional.
I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for an agent. You will not be disappointed.


Donna Valentino

Vanessa Elliot was our realtor agent and we loved working with her. It was our first experience buying a home. She walked us through the process and all the legal jargon. She gave us information that provided us with our mortgage company and our lawyer. She helped ease us into this unknown world and even comforted our fears. If we had a worry she just took care of it. She went the extra mile to make this process easier for us. This is a scary time and especially when the unknown is involved. When I became nervous or fearful I called her. And I called her a lot. She was always ready and willing to be helpful. She was never impatient or upset. She would always say don't worry I am gonna take care of it. And she was true to her word. She took care of it. Thank you Vanessa you helped us make our dream come true.

Buying and selling a home is without question one of the most stressful times of your life. When looking into realtors we decided to go with Ana Sturt because we already had a friendly relationship with her and trusted her knowledge of the local market.

Starting on day one Ana put us at ease and guided us through all the potential pitfalls of selling your home. Once we had a solid offer that we accepted Ana was in contact with us daily helping us through the negotiation, appraisal and then finally a overly complicated closing. At each point she reduced our stress and was a dogged advocate for us in the process.

Earning the best price for your property is clearly important but her ability to put us at ease and reduce our frustration was worth every penny we paid her.

I would highly recommend Ana to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable and caring realtor. She made our experience painless.

Jen is a wonderful realtor to deal with. I am a first time home buyer, and she really put me at ease. She walked through the whole process step by step, making sure I understood everything. After the first house I viewed, she knew exactly what I wanted and would send listings to me of what I was looking for. The 3rd house I looked at was the one I bought. She knew I would love it, and she was right! She even brought the papers with her so I could put in an offer right there on the spot. She was in contact with me throughout the closing process so I knew exactly what was going on and what paperwork I needed. She was great. I will definitely use her again in the future and will highly recommend her to all of my friends.

"Michelle Parris is a true professional! It was such a pleasure to work with you. You are a true go getter, but you know the value of listening to your client. Hearing from the seller that it was your personal note that drew them toward our offer is just one of your many assets as a Realtor. You made Condo shopping so much fun and very easy as well. Long after we bought I'm still in the mood to shop. I guess I want to see how much I've retained from the buying process, you taught us a good bit! I will recommend you to all; consider yourself our families realtor! Thanks for being the Best!"

Sue is awesome! My wife and I contacted Sue on her Lake Realty site and since that very start she has been just absolutely amazing. Without a doubt, one of the best service oriented and personable humans on earth. We purchased a house through Sue and the entire process was flawless, and smooth as a baby's behind! She goes the extra mile to take care of the "little things" and the "big things" too. We cannot imagine a better realtor. Not much else to say... other than Sue has become a true friend in the process. Oh, and she is one mean laser tape measure user! Thank you Sue, you're the best!

REVIEW FOR JENNIFER KING:
If you were like my husband and I, we "shopped around" for a list agent before commiting to one. We knew how important the process would be and wanted to make sure our agent had our best interest at heart and not just a price tag. When we found Jennifer, we found A GEM! JENNIFER KING-hands down is phenomenal! Things that we wanted in our realtor was **someone who would walk through a home as if she were buying it for her and her family.** An agent who ARRIVED EARLY to make sure the house looked "stage worthy" before we entered. An agent who would "go to bat" for us when it came to getting our needs met before closing. Jennifer was so PATIENT with us and took every concern we had and turned into a resolution. Her FRIENDLY demeanor went for miles! She KNOWS HER STUFF and is SO PROFESSIONAL. My husband works third shift and if were not for her "holding my hand" at times, while he was catching up on sleep, I don't know what I would have done.
*She showed us a number of homes we picked out, but in the end, we chose the one SHE WANTED US TO SEE & FELL IN LOVE!! SHE REALLY LISTENS TO YOUR CHECKLIST OF NEEDS and does her best to have all of them met with your wants!* We can't say enough great things about her. LOOK NO FURTHER- GIVE HER A CALL! SHE IS REMARKABLE!!

What a joy it was to work with Sue Nichols! We would very much like to recommend her. Her attention to detail and her follow up made the entire process very smooth for us. The house we bought on the lake is very beautiful with a nice view of the water. She was very helpful to us and made us feel comfortable in purchasing this house. We are very much looking forward to moving in and enjoying our retirement.

Working with Jennifer King was a pleasure! Not only was she available to show us all the houses we wanted to see when we wanted to see them, but she was always available by text and email.

Jennifer has a wonderful understanding of the housing market and all the legal issues involved with buying a house. If we had a question, she had (or found for us) the answer.

Buying a house requires a lot of decisions, and Jennifer was always willing to help us think things out. She always put us, as the buyers, first. She was always happy to take us to see one more house.

Besides all this, she gives undivided attention. When the owners did not turn over the keys immediately, Jennifer waited with me for over an hour. She offered to go to the house when we could not because we were out of town.

In all ways, I highly recommend Jennifer King as your realtor agent. My son may be moving to Charlotte, and we would advise him to use no other realtor except Jennifer!

Lake Realty did a great job helping us purchase our home in Denver, NC. The entire process was seamless from start to finish. The lender they are affiliated with is very professional and efficient. The lawyer they utilize is top-notch as well. Our agent Jennifer King helped see the deal through to the end and worked diligently to make sure all issues were addressed to our satisfaction prior to closing. Jen was always available and was only a phone call away when we had questions or concerns. She is very prompt in her response and has expert knowledge of the local market and real estate industry. I would highly recommend Lake Realty and Jennifer King to anyone interested in purchasing a home in the Charlotte area. They offer superior service and helped us navigate the buying process with a high level of competency and professionalism.

Ana Sturt has been a pleasure to work with. She has always been very responsive and professional. I would recommend her to all my friends and family. Plus, she speaks Spanish which helped my parents in the selling process of their house. They felt more comfortable being able to communicate with her. She's great!

My wife and I have worked with Lake Realty and "Team Jennings" on (4) transactions in the past 18 months. Don and Meredith are extremely knowledgeable in all things concerning the Lake Norman real estate market. They helped us in every step of the process. They took the time to explain difficult to understand laws, and procedures. They are very well connected in the community and there is amazing support from the Lake Realty office. The Jennings approach is unique in this industry; they are real estate counselors. They facilitate the transaction as all agents do, but they personally make sure you are comfortable with the decision at every step of the process.


David Morton

Working with Sue was as easy and smooth as I could ever hope for . I flew in to house hunt for two days and found the perfect house with Sue . From that point on everything was done through email and phone and I didn't return till after the closing . Sue guided me through step by step and everything worked out perfectly. I would highly recommend Sue Nichols for all your real estate needs .

Thank you

My wife and I were living in downtown Chicago, but recently considered relocating near Lake Norman. Initially the plan was to rent an apartment in Cornelius for about 6 months so we could get acclimated to the area prior to purchasing a home. I contacted Sue while I was in Chicago after performing a search on the internet and explained our situation. Even though we were not looking to initially purchase, Sue provided us so much information about the local areas and was there to answer any and all questions us unseasoned movers had. Ok, so let’s just say the apartment that we were looking at was not going to work for us, after we arrived to visit the area. I immediately called Sue and asked her if it was possible that she could show us some homes over the next couple of days, she gladly said, “Of course”. Over the next day and a half, Sue showed us homes in Cornelius and some neighboring areas, and on day two, we made an offer that was accepted by the seller. I can tell you from all of my experiences working with realtors both as a home buyer/seller and while working as a loan officer as well, I have never experienced such a comfort level working with anyone else. Sue is super attentive, informative, and any other adjective you can think of that you would want representing you and you interest when it comes to purchasing a home. My wife and I are your biggest fans and advocates Sue, and as long as you are in the realtor business, you are our rock star realtor! Thanks bunches!

Working with the folks at Lake Realty was like working with family. Our agents, Donald and Meredith Jennings represented us well on both the sale of our current home and the purchase of our new home. They helped us navigate the entire process and were extremely knowledgeable. My wife and I would recommend the Jennings and Lake Realty to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the Lake Norman area. We would certainly use them again in a heartbeat.

We used Sue Nichols to help us by a condo on Lake Norman. Since we were moving from out of state we needed someone we could trust 100% to be our eyes in the area.

Sue was wonderful from the start. She was informative, patient and knowledgable.

We spent many weekends doing marathon showings, if condos came on the market she would preview them to se if they suited our needs to save us a needless trip to view them.

When we found the right condo she handled the inspection and other odds and ends for us since we were not living nearby.

We ended up buying the perfect waterfront unit, that she found for us since it was not formally on the market.

I recommend her without reservation.

Our home had been on the market for a year without a serious offer, when we began to work with Martha and Frank Free, who we knew to have special knowledge about real estate in the Lake Norman region. As soon as we contacted them, they toured our home and property and recommended the way forward. Martha and Frank quickly listed our home and created a beautiful brochure and an online virtual tour, and we began to receive requests for showings. Martha, Frank and their staff are professional, reliable, personable and innovative. They were available at all times to address concerns, answer questions and discuss plans for sale of our home. When we received a viable offer, they communicated quickly and effectively in helping us negotiate the sale and in the closing on our home, which went flawlessly. We highly recommend Martha and Frank Free for your realty needs. Earl & Cheryl

Our experience was truly awesome and our agent Jennifer King was amazing. The house we ended up purchasing she found for us. We where looking at a house in the same neighborhood and she found another one that was similar so we had options. That option turned out being the one for us. She helped negotiate a great deal and worked to make sure we received everything we asked for. She went above and beyond our expectations, meeting at odd times and multiple times so our child could see the house. Because of her work and incite we bought more than a house, we bought a home. Thank you again to Lake Realty and Jennifer King.

In 41 years of married life and buying and selling homes, we've worked with a number of good realtors; working with Sue has raised the bar!

Sue is competent, thorough, and the ultimate professional. She is always on the job; sometimes she addresses my concerns before I even articulate them. Sue is extremely patient and we appreciate that she does not push us but is always available to advise and support. We are still mid process but are confident as we move through it that Sue will bring us safely and happily to the home that is right for us.

Sue does all of this with charm and care. She has removed stress from the process - our whole family has come to know and rely on her. Choosing Sue as our realtor has turned out to be the best decision we could have made.

Our total experience working with Sue Nichols-fantastic!!! We could not have had a better, more informed, highly educated and completely caring realtor than Sue. We understood that the home buying process can be stressful and Sue defused a few issues, which helped to keep us focused on the main goal. She took the time with us, was always cheerful and excited with us during the whole process. If we ever decide to buy another house, we wouldn't choose anybody but Sue again. She is so competent about the market, the product and the loan options available that it really takes some of the stress right off your shoulders because you know you're safe working with her. We trusted her completely and she never let us down. We love her and so will her next clients, you'll see.

I worked with Ann Gray Payne and Randy for about 2 yrs to find the perfect property. They stuck by my side with great patience! Once that house became available, they did everything to help me through the process to make it easier, and less stressful... I would recommend the 2 of them as a great team to help anyone find that perfect house, and help create a home.

Thanks Ann and Randy!

We were fortunate to have raised a family in the Lake Norman area. When my husband's work took us out of state, we always knew that we wanted to relocate back when we could do so.
I looked for homes on the internet for a long time and found Lake Realty's website and Ann and Randy Payne, two of their realtors.
This past summer, we vacationed on Lake Norman and when we were there, Ann and Randy took us to see some of the homes that were for sale where we wanted to live.
We found a home right away and Ann and Randy made the home buying process so stress-free and easy. They had contacts that we used during the whole process from financing through inspection and we were very pleased with their professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile for us.
We absolutely recommend Ann and Randy Payne at Lake Realty for your home buying and selling needs, we were so glad that we found them and can't wait to be in our new home on the lake!

Donna, Thank you for recommending Randy & Ann Gray Payne

Darlene and Lloyd have been marvelous since the first day. They helped us with everything we needed and even exceeded our expectations. We just recently moved here from Europe and it was a great relief to have them by our side because they did more than just help us. They showed us the area, since everything was new to us, and they gave us the best advice. We could have not met better people than them. Even from across the ocean they provided us with the best service possible. They kept us up-to-date with the progress of our house right until we set foot here in America. We highly recommend them to anybody who is looking to purchase a home in the Lake Norman area. Henry and Aneta

Ann and Randy Payne are two of the most professional business people I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I had been researching the Lake Norman area on my own and believed I had a handle on how I should conduct my search until I had the good fortune of being contacted by Ann. Upon Ann's urging I took a boat tour of the lake with Randy and found I was going about my serach completely wrong for my purposes. Ann and Randy spent the time with me to help me design a more through process in my search. Ann and Randy, through their actions, have made it clear to me that they're there for me long term. I have been so pleased with their knowledge in areas such as lake construction, lake permitting, local government regulations and market skills that I have informed friends and acquaintences here in Virginia of the services that Ann and Randy can provide them. I do not give recommendations lightly, they reflect on my expections in life. Ann and Randy have my highest recommendation if you're seeking only the best in their field.

Mike Spunich was great. Very informative and very patient with me when the short sale I wanted went under contract to someone else. He patiently waited with me while it came back on the market and did everything to get me the best deal on the house. He even sent me videos of the home inspection that I was unable to be at. I am a first-time homebuyer and he walked me through everything even giving me tips and pointers on what I needed to do to take care of the house. I really enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy a house.

"We have been working with Lloyd and Darlene Radeschi for the past 6 months to help us find our first home together. They have been wonderful to work with! They are both extremely knowledgeable about the Lake Norman area and real estate in general. Eventhough we are "picky" and haven't been able to decide on a house as of yet, we can count on them daily to send us new listings in the areas we are interested in. They always go the extra mile and make themselves available, which makes it easy and convenient with our hecktic schedules to view houses we want to see. They are more than willing to help us get the job done and we highly recommend them to future clients!" Ashley & Brad

Darlene and Lloyd Radeschi have been working with us for the last year to assist us in finding our retirement dream home in the Lake Norman area. Here we sit, in cold, blustery, snowy Ohio warmly perusing our weekly property report from Darlene and Lloyd. They respond immediately to our questions, requests for more information, or changes in our desires. Though we're a couple of years away from retirement, they treat us as valuable clients and don't hesitate to spend time assisting us. We're sure we will find exactly what we hope for at the appropriate time frame with their help! Can't wait!!! Gary and Rita

I have been in the real estate/construction industries for the better part of 20 years. Although not directly affiliated with Lake Realty, I know Frank and Martha, and have come to know many of the agents within their office through my home inspection company. Without a doubt, I can say that Lake Realty and its team of brokers are the most knowledgable, considerate, and "client-centric" offices that I have run across in a very long time. It has been an absolute pleasure to be associated with such fine, knowledgable, and caring people.

I have worked with Eloise Morano for over 7 years in the housing and real estate market. Her knowledge of the Lake Norman area along with her professional and personable approach with people gives me the confidence to refer friends and prospective clients her way. Eloise has the ability and patience to communicate with her clients in a way that helps her understand their true needs. I know you can count on her to go the extra mile when it comes to buying or selling your property, which is why she is the one I have chosen to list my own home this spring!- Teresa Blake, Old Hickory Construction, Inc.

Rick and Jackie Ross started working with Stacey Fregosi a few years ago online while still in Buffalo, NY. After a brief period with Stacey showing us both vacant waterfront land , as well as existing homes on Lake Norman, we decaided to take a vacation to the Lake Norman region. Stacey tookm us all around Norman showing us the properties that we were most interested in. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in trying to find us what we were looking for. The very next day we happened upon a vacant lot on the end of Burton cove, which we fell in love with. Stacey handled the negotions, and before we finished our drive back to Buffalo, we had bought the property. Fast forward to 2012, and we are enjoying our New Waterfront home on the lake. Thanks again, Stacey!

Vevie Gibbs and Marsha Marold were a great team for us. They did an excellent job helping us find our home on Lake Norman, especially since we were coming from out of town, our house sold in a week and the closing process was so intense. They made everything run smoothly Thanks so much, Karen & Ken.

Jim and Susan - January 15, 2012
Pam and Diana are the BEST! Their patience and knowledge was invaluable to us as we searched the Lake Norman area for the "perfect" place to settle. We first came here (from Washington, DC area) to check out Lake Norman as one of several possible retirement locations. It quickly rose to the top of our list, in no small measure because of Pam and Diana's enthusiasm, understanding, and commitment to our needs. Their help throughout the house inspection and closing process was particularly amazing. . .we felt as though we had our very own, personal representatives here working for us as we dealt with selling our home and packing up our belongings 400 miles away in Maryland. Most important, they continue to help us with all the details of settling into a new neighborhood. Thank you, thank you, Pam and Diana. We found not just wonderful, smart realtors, but great new friends, too!

Marsha Marold is great!I am considering retiring to the Charlotte lakes region in the not too distant future. Marsha Marold Has continued to send me listings for over a year, and although I havn't yet convinced my wife to make the move, Marsha has been outstanding in providing enticing information, and listings to me. I have found many of my wifes dream houses and forwarded them to her.I think she is starting to weaken. Any way Marsha has been tireless in assisting me, and if we do move to the area she will be our agent.
I'm John from NJ.

Chris & Jim - Jan 10, 2012. We have been working with Marsha Marold for over a year and I am so thankful that we stopped in at Lake Realty the day we met her. She is friendly, knowledgeable and answers all e-mails and questions fully and promptly. She really takes time with us and we are lucky to have found her. I have since recommended that others contact her and will continue to do so in the future. THANKS Marsha!

Stacey Fregosi is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not being from N. Carolina I know nothing about your state's Real Estate Tax structure. Stacey has provided me w/ tax tables and taken the time to explain them. If I see a property of interest and have questions, she does all she can to get the answers - from sending arial photos with property lines highlighted, to contacting the listing agent. I couldn't have asked for a better agent. We are planning our third vacation to the Lake Norman area and can't wait to find our dream home w/ Stacey. Mike & Cathye - 1-30-12

Eloise Morano is absolutely the best realtor I have ever worked with - and I I've dealt with almost 20 as either a home buyer or seller through the years. She's extremely knowledgeable and professional, passionate about her work, and an absolute joy to work with (she's just a wonderful person). Eloise went above and beyond to help resolve a variety of issues that arose completely outside her responsibility as my realtor. She advocated on my behalf like a life-long friend, constantly kept me updated, and provided GREAT referrals for other services I needed. I couldn't be happier or more impressed with her work - she's amazing!

Lloyd and Darlene have been amazingly attentive and professional. Although we have no immediate plans to relocate, they have been providing us with listings for several years and when we actually visited the Lake Norman area, they gave us an informative tour of homes for sale and area towns. If we do decide on Lake Norman in the future, Lloyd and Darlene will definitely be our agents. Barbara and Richard Joyce, New Hampshire

I knew Martha Free was the right agent for me within the first few minutes of meeting her. As a single mom who was buying her first home, I knew that I would need someone who would help me think through all of the positive and negatives of each home that I saw both inside and out. I also knew that I would need a good neighborhood for my three children and keep within my budget. With all of those factors combined, Martha found a house that not only I LOVE but that also meets the needs of my children, finances and my dogs!! She is Awesome!!

Ann & Randy Gray Payne are amazing! Ann and Randy have an extensive knowledge of the area, are super accommodating, extremely patient and have completely exceeded our expectations - which isn't easy considering the fact that I was a licensed Real Estate Broker. We wouldn't consider working with anyone else. Kevin & Cherie

My wife & I worked with Eloise to buy our first home, and even though it was daunting at first she made the process easy and painless everyone she recomended was amaizing, from the morgage broker to the home inspector. Top notch service, I couldn't have asked for a nicer more professional realtor.

We have been working with Ann Gray Payne at Lake Realty for nearly a year to find a lake property for our future retirement. She has been very patient and given us great service with timely updates for new listings and recommendations even though we live out of state. When we do make our decision, Ann will be the one we turn to for closing the deal. Jay and Carol

Vevie Gibbs was everything/anything you could possibly want. We sold one home through her and bought another. She is our Realtor of choice and always will be because she doesn't stop after the sale. We started strangers but felt we had a friend after the process was complete. What more could you ask for!!! Thanks again Vevie. Brian and Robin

Lloyd & Darlene exceeded our expectations~ Living in New York and trying to find and purchase the right home in Denver NC is not an easy task, however with Lloyd and Darlene's expertise and great people skills, made it happen! We had full trust in working remotely with them and taking their advice. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to purchase property/home. - Caryl & Wayne
