Lake Norman Real Estate's November 2019 Desktop Calendar

I don’t know about you but I never get tired of gorgeous Lake Norman sunsets.  Imagine if this was your view every evening! While searching for a November desktop calendar photo this one spoke to me because it is ablaze with autumn’s colors. Fall weather came late here so we are just starting to see leaves turning.  Usually by now our streets and the Lake Norman shoreline would be lined with myriad reds, oranges and yellow tones thanks to our many amazing trees like Maples, Poplar’s, Dogwoods, Crepe Myrtles and Sweetgums.  We are very fortunate to have so many gorgeous hardwood trees, truly one of the reasons we moved here so many years ago from California.

I would love to use one of your favorite photos depicting life here in Lake Norman. (Optimum size is a landscape photo about 2MB or about 1600 x 1200 pixels). I will give a $25 Gas Card to anyone who provides a photo that I use as one of my monthly calendars. If you’d like to submit a photo or an idea for a future calendar, please send it to…diane@dianeaurit.com

It is days like this one above when I am reminded just how lucky I am to be a Realtor here in Lake Norman.  Imagine being able to enjoy views like this one while working!  I took this photo from a very special property being purchased by one of my very special buyers. The trees are turning green and the beautiful azaleas like this one are starting to bloom which make the Lake Norman shoreline so colorful at this time of year.  Every season at Lake Norman has its own character and beauty but this is by far my favorite!

Fall is a very special season on Lake Norman.  The tree-lined shoreline becomes ablaze with vibrant shades of reds, oranges and yellows as our many Maple, Gum, Poplar and other stunning trees transform in preparation for winter with a back drop of our brilliant Carolina Blue Skies.  The reason many folks relocate to Lake Norman is because we do have 4 distinct seasons albeit very mild ones. Fall and Spring are definite my favorite times of year!

Meet Zoey, my sweet and adorable kitty who, when not playing the piano, loves sitting on my lap “helping” me work. Three years ago in January I was working on a new waterfront listing on Lake Norman which had on it an old cabin and was tenant occupied.  When I walked through the door on that cold night my eyes went right past the house to the sliding glass door facing the lake.  There was this cute little kitten face staring at me.  I walked right passed everyone to the door, went out and picked up the shivering little kitty.  She purred louder than any kitty I have ever heard.  She curled up on my shoulder and snuggled into my neck.  It was love at first sight and I knew then that I had to help her.  Apparently she had been abandoned as a tiny kitten and the tenants were feeding her outside.

When I think of fall, our gorgeous Great Smokey Mountains, just 90 miles from Lake Norman, always come to mind.  While we have beautiful fall colors right here in Lake Norman, leaf peeping in our mountains is such a big deal that the local weather forecasters even include their stages of color.  Better go this weekend as they are almost past prime where as here they have just started to change.  This unusually warm weather may have something to do with the late colors.  I am looking forward to real fall temperatures!  (And, please send us some rain too, we can really use it.)

I love drones! This is one of my favorite photos of my new listing in The Point because you can see Lake Norman and get a real sense that this home is not only stunning but how it is truly surrounded by trees and just around the corner from the lake.  I am planning to write my next post about drone and 3-D photography and how it helped to sell this property in one day.  Stay tuned!

August in Lake Norman is the last chance for many folks to enjoy their summer vacations before the start of the school year.  The weather right now is warm enough to tell our bodies to slow down and relax….even yawn on a warm summer’s afternoon.  This lion has the right idea!

Stunning Lake Norman Sunset Calendar

Download this month’s Lake Norman calendar here

It is amazing how glassy the water had to be on this beautiful evening on Lake Norman to create such a perfect mirror image of the trees along the shore, the clouds and the stunning sunset.  A huge thank you to my past client and friend Betty Ann for sending me this for my monthly calendar!!  The longer I stare at it the more artistic details I see, especially how the water accentuates the colors, the shapes of the clouds and the sky itself.  How wonderful to have been able to capture and share this instant of nature’s beauty on our very special lake.

Lake Norman Waterfront Lot's view of the lake

Download this month’s Lake Norman calendar here

The weather was amazing in April!  Lake Norman’s gorgeous shoreline is once again decorated with our myriad lush green trees, flowering Azaleas and plants of all kinds.  In many places the docks just peak out to let people know that, in fact, someone is lucky enough to live behind those trees on the lake.

I took this picture from the dock of a waterfront lot I just listed in The Point, arguably the most prestigious luxury community on Lake Norman.  Since our recovery after the recession, the last remaining lots in The Point and the greater Brawley School Rd. peninsula have been gobbled up and most already have gorgeous new homes on them.  Construction is everywhere.  There are 3 waterfront homes being built just down the street from me and 3 others are completed.  I must admit that it is sometimes hard to see our beautiful, wooded lots disappearing.

The lot in this photo is shoulder to shoulder with some amazing luxury waterfront estates!  Check it out: 134 Cape Cod Way.

It’s time to start thinking about spring and getting back out on our beautiful Lake Norman.  From “cigarette” boats speeding up the main channel to kayaks like these on a quiet cove, Lake Norman offers something for everyone.  Photos like this can’t help but bring you a sense of peace and serenity.

This stunning photo was taken by renowned artist Cotton Ketchie, owner of Mooresville’s Landmark Gallerieswho spends much of his time driving all over North Carolina and even summer trips around the country, taking stunning photos. And, of course, he also takes some amazing photos of Lake Norman as well. If you haven’t visited his store on Main Street in Historic Downtown Mooresville you should put it on your list for 2014! He has myriad beautiful photographs like this one for sale as well as his wonderful watercolors and even North Carolina pottery. Continue reading

Yes, we do have snow here!  I actually took this photograph last year but our recent snow looked just about the same.  One of the top reasons that my relocating buyers give for wanting to live in the Lake Norman area is our 4 mild seasons and most of the time that is very accurate.  It just happens that once every winter recently we have had one “real” snow where is sticks and schools are closed.  We do own a snow shovel but this is our 11th winter here and we didn’t get it until last year!

When I think of fall the Blue Ridge Mountains almost always come to mind first.  Yet another wonderful thing about living in the Lake Norman area is that the mountains are only about 2 hours away!  Whether you go for a day, a weekend or a long stay, a trip to our Great Smokey Mountains is a must do in the fall.  And, the good news is that this year is predicted to one of the best in years for color in quite a while due to the drought.  Want to know when to go for peak peeping? You need look no farther than our local TV weather experts who provide updates on their broadcasts and websites frequently to let us know the best time to peep.  Or, check out this Fall Color Map from Appalachian State’s Biology Department.  It looks like October is the month this year!

This gorgeous photo is of the Linn Cove Viaduct on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
