If you are a regular reader of Lake Norman Real Estate, you might have been surprised when you first opened this home page. My talented blog designer, marti garaugty has been working feverishly for weeks to have this design ready for the launch of my new real estate firm:
Yes, I have made the plunge and opened my own real estate firm during a recession and a struggling Lake Norman housing market!
Unlike many, I see this market as an opportunity. My passion for being one step ahead, creative and innovative marketing and an obsession with quality, not quantity has resulted in LKN Realty, LLC. The mission is simply putting into action my passions. Now I have the freedom to create “out of the box” marketing. Now I can truly represent my buyers and sellers with a 100% ability to stay true to my own ethical standards (like no dual agency) while providing the knowledge, counseling and guidance to best serve each one’s unique needs and desires. Now I can be the local real estate firm leading the “green” housing movement.
But I digress.
Back to this blog/website: One of the most exciting changes here at Lake Norman Real Estate is a new property search program. Once in place in a few days you will have four awesome tools:
- The capability to search solds
- The “Deal Sniffer”: which enables you to compare a listing to others in the area
- The “Market Check”: which allows you to look at homes recently sold in the area of the listing you are viewing
- The “Go Green” which will calculate how much fuel you will use if you commute from any home you choose to various destinations from Lake Norman to Charlotte to the Airport.
Finally, on each search result page, you will find a Google map box with each property result marked on it. You can easily see an aerial map as well.
In order to be true to my own philosophy that my readers should not have to sign in to get any information on this site,and much to the surprise of my IDX data provider, you will be able to use any any and all of these functions without having to login or provide your personal information! The only time you will provide data will be if you want to establish “Favorites” or your own person searches.
My goal is to make Lake Norman Real Estate the very best resource available. If you have any suggestions as to how to improve it or ideas for topics to write about, please let me know. Thank you for indulging me as I make this self-serving announcement!
