  • Since joining Mr. Lake Lure® Real Estate in 2012, I have found my niche in helping Buyers find their dream home!

    My real estate strength is firsthand knowledge about ALL the aspects of relocating to a retirement and second home destination .... I've done it twice! I will put my experience to work, and help you every step of the way.

    Originally from Ohio, I moved to St. John in the US Virgin Islands. Like many of my current real estate clients, it started with a dream! Just like you, I would fantasize about a "different place", and finally got the nerve to make the move. Once there, I operated a successful hospitality business. I quickly became accustomed to small town living, and a true sense of community. We knew our neighbors, and we all watched out for each other .... just like the communities of Lake Lure.

    After years in the Virgin Islands, my sense of adventure turned my attention from the beach to the mountains. During an exhaustive search of places I might call home, I kept returning to Lake Lure. It had the mountains I love, the tropical foliage I might miss, the scenic beauty I craved, and the sense of community I needed.

    Just like you, I searched the Internet for hours looking for the perfect home. I researched, merely hoping I knew enough about the area. Comparing communities was difficult from afar, because information was scarce. How would I know the homes I found were suitable for my needs? In hindsight, I had NO IDEA choosing the RIGHT Realtor would have made my life SO much easier! That was my calling! I've experienced these fears firsthand, and with me as your Realtor, you won't! I understand your concerns, and this should be a FUN and EXCITING journey!

    I decided my life experiences were best suited to help OTHER people fulfill their dreams too! You can be as close as Charlotte, or as far away as the Virgin Islands ... and I will be your eyes and ears. From a distance, I will help you find the perfect vacation home, or the right place to retire. I will help you along the journey of relocating permanently, or settling-in to your new vacation getaway.

    I think Lake Lure is that perfect place ... and I think you will too!
