My #1 priority is to provide YOU with the best service! My expertise in the market, areas, and types of homes available allows me to find the perfect home for you and your family.

22 years ago, my husband and I decided to move to Charlotte.  Not knowing anyone in this city, we liked the small town feeling of towns like Huntersville and Cornelius.  We have never regretted this decision.  The Lake Norman area has been the perfect place to raise our 3 children.  This area has grown so much since we moved but you still get the small town feeling everywhere you go.  The community is very welcoming and is easy to make new friends.  Lake Norman offers different areas all around.  Besides being one of the largest banking cities in the US, there are lots of activities like sporting events, Nascar races, concerts, great food, festivals and much more.  I do have to mention that the Carolina Panthers went to the 50th Super Bowl!!! Way to go Panthers!!! (I am a huge football fan) 

I grew up in Lima, Peru and came to the US to get a college education.  I have a BA in economics and worked for Bank of America in the International Accounting Dept.  I am fluent in Spanish and speak some German.  13 years ago, I began doing Real Estate full time. Real Estate has become my passion.  I have the pleasure to meet clients who trust me to find their dream homes and/or sell their current homes.  I also work with investors obtaining investment properties and assist many of them renting those properties.  When entering into a Real Estate transaction, knowledge of the market, expertise, and experience are essential.  I am very confident that I can provide you with everything you may need to make the best decisions in regards to Real Estate and to make the process as stress-free as possible.  Welcome to this great city!!!

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

My Reviews

Ana, you ROCK! You took our dream of a family lake house and turned it into a reality in just 2 months. Thanks for going above and beyond - your personal touch is truly appreciated.

We highly recommend Ana Sturt to prospective home buyers. She is everything you want a realtor to be: knowledgeable, sharp, professional, prompt, responsive, committed and courteous. What’s more, her sunny disposition eased the strain of our relocation. Despite extreme short notice of our first visit from out of town, she pulled together a good sampling of homes for showings which fit our criteria. Then she patiently traipsed all over the greater Huntersville area while our decision making evolved. We ultimately chose to go with a new-construction home but did so confidently as a result of the due diligence we had done with Ana. During the construction phase Ana proved herself to be invaluable to us by serving as our local eyes and ears since we were not yet living in NC. Her videotape of the ongoing building process enabled us to catch mistakes early enough to be addressed by the builder. Then she was instrumental in keeping the builder accountable. Overall, working with Ana was a successful and pleasurable experience.

I am so thankful to Ana Sturt for her professionalism and attention to detail. She helped me sell my house and buy a new one even organizing back to back closings. She was very responsive and made herself available whenever needed. It truly is all about who you know and I’m so glad I know her! Thanks Ana!

While working with Ana Sturt, I was treated very professionally. Ana made the whole process of selling one's home  easy. Ana listed my house and the next day an interested buyer was found. One can't ask for any more than that when it comes to selling a house. Thanks for all of your help Ana! Best wishes for much success in your future!

 I’ve known Ana Sturt for many years. First we became acquaintances, since we are both Peruvian and lived in the same neighborhood, and through the years we became friends. As a friend, when it came time to sell our house, I knew I could trust her to become my realtor. After working with her, the truth is that I would recommend her to anyone not only because she is my friend but also because she is a truly wonderful agent. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous of working with her because she would have to deal with my husband, who can become stressed in business situations. Ana was so patient with him. She answered all his questions and reassured him whenever he thought something could go wrong. She was always smiling and willing to make changes in schedule. She even went to talk with us on rainy days. She kept my husband well informed calling on the phone almost every day. Ana was there from the very beginning giving us ideas and suggestions of how to make our house marketable. She really has a good eye. She was amazing at doing all the paper work. My husband practically didn’t have to do anything because she was always ahead and on top of everything. My sometimes hard to please husband now has a lot of respect and gratitude towards her. As for me, if I ever need an agent again it will definitely be her. She has a lot of experience and she loves what she does, helping people to make the experience of selling a pleasant one.

Ana was able to overcome many obstacles while selling our lake lot. She has a wealth of knowledge and is very professional. We would recommend her as your agent.

Ana was very professional, was very attentive with our needs. Also, she was always in contact with our lender so that paperwork was always on time. She was a big help in helping us find our ideal home!

"She is on top of things and thinks outside the box, which helped us selling our home after 10 months on the market in a very competitive area, where we were completing with numerous local builders."

Don Phipps

We tried for about a month to get a renter on our own, but we did not have any luck. When Ana took over, we were able to get a top quality renter in about 1 week. She was very thorough and professional and the communication between the potential renters and us was exceptional.  Thanks, Ana!

Sandy and Seth Blodgett

Ana helped us in both finding our dream home, as well as selling our house. She was very knowledgeable of the Lake Norman and Mountain Island lake areas, and the properties available, doing substantial research on our behalf.  When it came time to place an offer, Ana guided us through the process and made sure that everything in the house was to our satisfaction, including through the inspection and associated repairs. Once we bought our house, we signed on with Ana to sell our other house.  Ana worked hard to make sure our house was advertised, organizing an open house, and working with different realtors.  At the end, we were able to sell our house within just a couple of months from buying and at the price we had set as our target at the start of the process. Thank you Ana!

We had known Ana Sturt socially for a few months and when we decided to sell our home, we felt very comfortable listing it with Ana (Lake Realty) She guided us through preparing our home prior to placing it on the market. Within three days of listing our home had a contract, through the process of finalizing the sale, Ana was always available. During the above period Ana also, continued to keep us updated on homes for sale in the areas we preferred, we submitted a bid on a home which was accepted, through the process, Ana continued her professional and caring ways. We would recommend Ana to anyone selling or buying a home. She is an asset to Lake Realty.

We placed our Western PA home on the market in July 2014 and were planning to move closer to Pittsburgh, PA. However, after about a year on the market we decided to look into the Mooresville, NC area. Some time after that, we contacted Ana about a home she had listed online and from there, a great relationship began. We explained to Ana that our home was on the market for quite some time with no offers and we continued to reduce our price. Ana asked what we were looking for in a home and she began collecting information from us then immediately began sending us links to homes that matched our criteria in the Mooresville area. She was very proactive in keeping in touch with us through email and text messages even though we still hadn't received an offer.

Once we finally did accept an offer, we contacted Ana and made plans to head to NC to look at some homes. Ana lined up eight homes for our family to view and spent the entire day driving us from home to home and also showing us points of interest. She took us to other towns she thought we might like such as Davidson and Huntersville so we could see what other possibilities we had. At the end of the day we made an offer on one home but the sellers would not budge on the price so we left NC and headed back to PA. The next day we found another home in Huntersville and called Ana about it. But we were in PA and couldn't head back to NC for another couple weeks. So Ana volunteered to perform a video walk-through of the home complete with narration. She pointed out the that the home needed remodeling but it could be a good investment. After the inspection, we decided that it was too much work for us with a one-year old and we reluctantly had to let it go.

We were now 15 days into our PA home closing and needed to find a place quick. Ana lined up several more homes and I traveled back to NC alone to look at them. Ana found the perfect place for us (my wife had to take my word for it since she and my son were not able to travel to see the home) and we made an offer the same day.

After some haggling, we agreed on a price and Ana got the paperwork moving quickly. She guided us through every step and was very diligent to make sure everything was complete and correct since we only had 30 days to close before our PA home would be sold.

Once our family arrived at our new home, Ana made sure to contact my wife to find out if she liked the house since she was seeing it for the first time in person. Ana made us feel like we were her only client and was always available to answer our questions. She truly wanted us to achieve our goals and put us in a home we loved. Thank you, Ana

We have had the privilege of working with Ana Sturt. She helped to sell our home and find a community and the right builder to build our home. I can't say enough good things about about Ana. She is Above and Beyond what we expected. We feel so blessed to have her taking care of our biggest purchase/investment ever. Every little detail she took care of so we had no worries. Thank you Ana and Lake Realty! On a scale of 1 to 10, I give her a 10 !!!

In the Spring of 2015, my husband and I were very lucky to have met Ana Sturt of Lake Realty. We were just beginning the process of looking for a summer home in the Charlotte area. As luck would have it, we met Ana. She is, by far, the most professional realtor with whom we have ever dealt. She is extremely knowledgeable in all areas regarding the search and details of purchasing a new home. Ana is also extremely personable, patient, and willing to find the buyer exactly what he or she is looking for. Because of that, she was able to find us the perfect home that checked off every item on our wish list. Ana is a hands-on realtor who assisted us with everything from the initial search to well beyond the closing. If we ever decide to purchase another home, Ana will certainly be our only realtor of choice.

Buying and selling a home is without question one of the most stressful times of your life. When looking into realtors we decided to go with Ana Sturt because we already had a friendly relationship with her and trusted her knowledge of the local market.

Starting on day one Ana put us at ease and guided us through all the potential pitfalls of selling your home. Once we had a solid offer that we accepted Ana was in contact with us daily helping us through the negotiation, appraisal and then finally a overly complicated closing. At each point she reduced our stress and was a dogged advocate for us in the process.

Earning the best price for your property is clearly important but her ability to put us at ease and reduce our frustration was worth every penny we paid her.

I would highly recommend Ana to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable and caring realtor. She made our experience painless.

Ana Sturt has been a pleasure to work with. She has always been very responsive and professional. I would recommend her to all my friends and family. Plus, she speaks Spanish which helped my parents in the selling process of their house. They felt more comfortable being able to communicate with her. She's great!

Hello my name is Cavan Newsome. I would like to encourage you to utilize Ana Sturt as your next realtor for buying or selling a home. Ana actually helped me and my wife Courtney not only sell our former home, but also buy our next home in a neighborhood we had been looking at for quite some time. Ana was very professional and knowledgeable of the market. She actually convinced me to alter some of the things I wanted to do and trust her on her knowledge of the market. I can honestly say if I wouldn't have listened to her recommendations I would have cost myself additional revenue on the sale of our home. I really appreciate her quick follow up and turn around times regarding questions and concerns I had throughout both selling and buying our new home both with Ana.

Hopefully we will not be in the market for a new home anytime soon, however I would definately recommend Ana for the sale or purchase of a new home. She definately puts the clients needs first and foremost above anything else. Thanks again for all you did for guiding us through the selling and buying process of 2 homes Also I forgot to mention we sold our house in less than two weeks with Ana and Lake Realty.

Last year when I started searching for a new home, I began by searching the Internet and driving by the homes that I liked. One day I drove by one and Ana was having an open house. That particular house was not the house for me but Ana offered her services. I'm glad that I agreed to work with her because one week after that I was signing the contract to purchase my new house.

From the moment I met Ana she was polite, courteous, and went above and beyond to provide me with spectacular service. Ana asked me some question and provided me with a list of homes that met all my expectations. She always answered all my questions and concerns quickly and efficiently. She returned all phone calls and emails in a timely manner not matter the day or time. She worked with by mortgage consultant to ensure the process moved along smoothly. She kept me on scheduled with the tasks that I needed to complete prior to closing.

Until the day I closed Ana never let the ball dropped and I could not have had a better experience. Ana is a wonderful person with a warm spirit. She is a great Realtor and I will continue to recommend her services.

We have used Ana 3 times to sell various properties and she was outstanding all three times. Today it is difficult to find people who are willing to go the extra mile in their work. Ana does that.

She is very knowledgeable of the local real estate market. She is an agent who works all the way until the final signature on the closing paperwork. Her experience allows her to see possible problems and she is able to give advice which makes the sale of your property or the purchase of the new property go smoothly. Ana is professional and I would recommend her to anyone with real estate needs.

My wife and I have been looking for a house online, checking deals and prices for the last 2 years.

Every time we came across a house and called a realtor, his or her first concern was to sign us up before he or she knew our needs. One day, we came across a nice property. Ana was the agent for that property. First, she took the time to ask what we needed and what we were looking for in a home. As well as what our plans and budget were. Then, she asked us what area we were looking for and if we were going to use her as an agent or if we had someone else in mind.

After a long phone call, she explained to us the system and what our first step should be. We signed up with her and then she helped us to get pre- approved on a loan so that we could search better for a home. We ended up buying a different house than the one we saw when we first met Ana.

She always answered our calls even on Saturdays and Sundays. The times she did not, she called us back in less than five minutes. She was up on every move and in every aspect of the process of buying our new home. She was up to the minute with updating us on the finance, appraisal and inspection.

She never hesitated to help us in the best way possible to make it easier on us. Even if it had nothing to do with her duties as an agent. Whether it was in her field or not, she was there every step of the way. I will use her again. And I will give her 12 out of 10.
