My Reviews

               Rick Carter at Lake Realty could not have been any better at listing and selling my condo. I live out of state, and we literally never met until the day of closing. He handled everything- promptly kept me informed, and made the transaction nearly effortless on my end. I could not have asked for a better experience.   Jarrett T


           Rick Carter was wonderful in guiding me through a difficult sale of a condo. Like most sellers, I had an inflated idea of the value of the condo, but he worked me through the proper pricing of the condo, resulting in several quick offers. He is very knowledgeable, patient and a pleasure to work with. I've worked with a number of real estate agents over the years, both from the buyer's and seller's side. I can honestly say that Rick is one of the very best, and I would highly recommend him.

My husband and I are from New York and we were searching for a home to relocate to Charlotte NC. Our realtor Rick Carter went above and beyond to find us the perfect home. We decided to build our home and Rick helped us through the whole process, even representing us when we could not make it down to Charlotte. Rick's knowledge of the area, support, and professionalism put us at ease with our new purchase. We are very happy we had the opportunity to work with Rick and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in Charlotte North Carolina.

     My husband and I had the honor of working with Mr. Carter in finding our new home. Rick is an exceptional individual, who makes you feel like your a part of his family. We currently live in New York and will be relocating to North Carolina. You would think that it would be a long process since we live so far. Rick made this process so easy, We are still in disbelief! How this one person, who has other clients makes you feel like your number #1.. He always calls you back and will always greet you with a smile. I could go on and on about Mr. Carter, but the space is only so big! We are ever so grateful for Mr. Rick Carter #1 realtor is our eyes.

Rick Carter did an excellent job getting my wife and me into our new home. We really believe he found us the best option out there, in the entire market, for suiting our needs. I've worked with a number of real estate agents over the years and he is by far the most thorough of them all. He knows every aspect of the industry and is relentless in pursuing what is best for his clients, as he takes a genuine interest in them. As a side note, Lake Realty also provided us with a moving truck free of charge for two days - these personal touches are exceedingly rare in this day and age!   JASON M  


      Rick conducted the purchase of my home with complete professionalism and it closed out quickly. Rick is a realtor that gets the job done even when there seems to be mounting obstacles. He kept me re-assured in stressful moments which meant so much to me as a elderly woman.

       His knowledge of real estate is an asset to him commendable and I valued his input in helping me to learn about choosing the best home for my family's needs as well as my own.

       I enjoyed working with Rick through out the entire process and I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home or

desiring to sell their their home.

    I welcome any opportunity to recommend Rick to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a home in North Carolina.   My family was fortunate enough to have Rick find us a very particular home at exactly the right price.   Rick was knowledgeable about the area, responsive to our inquiries, and prompt when we needed information.  His assistance in the business side of the transaction was exemplary.   I have personally recommended Rick to several friends and hope to do so again.

I used Rick Carter to sell my house last year . I found him to be very professional and up to date on all aspects of the the current real estate market . He as very personable and was concerned with everything I wanted when it came to selling my house. He took care of everything from getting it listed quickly at the price I wanted and we were able to sell it in a 24 hour period . He was able to get me a cash offer and a quick closing date . I feel Rick did an excellent job and would give him a five star rating.

Rick Carter found us our lake house! Rick was a pleasure to work with and calmly & professionally navigated us through what turned out to be a complicated purchase. We are so glad that Rick was our agent.

We used Rick to help find a rental in 2016 during a transition from the Northeast. Came back to him to help us find the right home in 2017. Rick did a great job and was timely and responsive and did a great job helping us relocate.

I have worked with over 12 realtors over the years , a handfull were quite good , but Rick is heads and tails above any other I have worked with .If he was busy when I called , he got back to me very fast .He soon got a feel for what we wanted ,and searched out those homes. As an out of town buyer , he was quick to seek out answers to any question we had , and he even contacted contractors to get cost estimates for things that we felt needed done to the home in question . He is hard working and diligent at what he does . I HIGHLY recommend him.

It has been a pleasure working with Rick to find and purchase our retirement home in Charlotte. We live in Ohio, so buying a home in North Carolina presented some challenges but Rick was always there to help us with any questions or concern we had. He was always willing to take a video of any properties that we were interested in and gave us a detailed and honest description of the properties condition. Rick went above and beyond as our realtor and made the process as easy as possible for my wife and I. One example of going above and beyond is how Rick was able to get us a home warranty as part of the purchase to be paid for by the seller which is something we would have never thought of. My wife and I couldn't have asked for more from a realtor and would definitely use Rick again in the future to buy or sell a property. We would also have no reservations about referring Rick to others that might be looking for a realtor.

Moving from out of state is not an easy task, Ricky made this transition very easy and smooth. We love our new home in Lincolnton and look forward to our new life in NC. Rick is kind, compassionate and fun to view homes with. He listens and is very honest. I will use him to find my next property and tell my friends and family.
