TOP PRODUCING – AWARD WINNING – PROFESSIONAL REALTOR


HELLO!
Welcome to my website. I’ve gathered a wealth of information here to help you with all your real estate needs – from latest property listings to great information for buyers and sellers.

All you have to do to get started is to click on any of the three tabs above titled Property Search, Buyers or Sellers. Additionally you can view my Listings by clicking on the View Feature Properties tab just above Recommended Links.

If you are new to Charlotte and the Lake Norman area I think you will find the Recommended Links on the left very informative information on our area. Recommended Searches provides up to date information on many of the more popular searches done by buyers in our area. If you do not see a search that meets your needs, I can customize a search just for you.

I hope you find these online tools useful and remember you can also contact me if there is anything I can do to help you.

RELOCATING TO THE LAKE NORMAN/CHARLOTTE AREA - “Where the Good Life Begins”
I am so excited that you are considering a move to the Charlotte area. I have lived on the shores of Lake Norman for over twenty years and I can assure you, you are going to love it here too!

Lake Norman is the largest lake in North Carolina and was created by Duke Energy in 1962. Lake Norman is all about the lifestyle and all the recreational activities the 530 miles of shoreline create. Living on the lake offers many options from the most luxurious lake front properties to a more casual lake cabin feel and a few lots still remain waiting for your custom home. There is so much to enjoy here and I can’t wait to find you your new home.

Please feel free to give me a call or send me an email with any of your real estate questions. I look forward to working with you and thank you for your business!
