Southern Homes of the Carolina's

I am blessed to partner with Mike Toste, aka Lake Norman Mike in beautiful North Carolina. 

Shortly after moving to North Carolina and after much persistence on my part, I was introduced to Mike via Jen ( a past client of Mike’s, now a fellow team member). I knew I wanted to work with him since he is one of the finest in the industry. And if there is one thing I know, it’s that you surround yourself around the best in the business, no matter the industry.

Real Estate was not a career that I had on the radar, but several years ago a good friend encouraged me to give it a try and I did. I love Real Estate! I realized it was a natural transition from my old career as a hairstylist to becoming a Realtor. Being a people person and being service oriented, it gave me an ongoing opportunity to build relationships with others and give them a good end result.

Convincing Mike to bring me on his team proved to be a bit more challenging, because there was “no room at the inn”. However, I didn’t let that stop me. I don’t give up easily. Jokingly, I say I persisted to the point where he finally gave in and said “UNCLE”. Mike might say he gave in just so he didn’t have to hear me nag him any longer.

The Lake Norman area is our baby and we love all things Lake Norman. So if weather permits, let’s view properties via boat. It’s a great way to get a feel for the lake and see all the lake has to offer. With 520 miles of shoreline it has plenty to do!
