Integrity, service and extensive market knowledge combined with my 25-year career in marketing and business will provide you with the expertise you need to list and find your new home. I want to see you smile!

I have lived in the Lake Norman and Charlotte area since 1994, originally from the Washington, DC area. My career includes management and consulting positions in real estate development, tourism, non-profit, retail, and hospitality industries. Resourcefulness, curiosity and a passion for making a difference are all reasons for my success.

Living, working and raising a family throughout the area, along with a love for real estate provides me with great insight. Plus, my work in sales and marketing for the Charlotte Convention & Visitors Bureau allowed me to become an expert on the Charlotte region.

My sharp negotiating skills and attention to detail will guide you through the buying and selling experience. I have an eye for design and can prepare your home ready to sell to get the best return on your investment.

Lake Realty is local, family-owned business where we all work as a professional team. We provide advanced technology for marketing your home and have more 5- star Google reviews than any other firm in the Lake Norman area.

If you are thinking about buying, sellling or investing and would like to see a market report or look at properties, please give me a call. I would be happy to work with you! 

Outside of work, I love adventure travel, tennis, hiking, yoga, and fitness. My two sons and dog, Snickers make me smile!

My Reviews

We had an outstanding experience with Lynne Priestley at Lake Realty! She was an excellent communicator returning phone calls, text messages and emails promptly. She was very business savvy in negotiations and helpful without out being pushy. Lynne was very informed with regard to subdivisions, shopping areas, future development and historical perspective. She was very flexible working with us as out of town buyers. Her patience during our journey was abundant. Lynne has many resources at her fingertips: painters, maintenance, interior decorators, carpet cleaners, and many more. She will help you transition smoothly into your new home. We have worked with many, many realtors, and Lynne was one of the most outstanding. We highly recommend Lynne & Lake Realty!

After getting nowhere with our current realtor and not knowing the area very well, I decided to reach out to Lake Realty in hopes they would be able to provide more insight into condos on Lake Norman. My husband and I were looking for a second property to rent out to vacationers. We had been told by previous realtors that Cornelius and Mooresville did not allow vacation rentals. Lynne Priestley was quick to respond that same evening. That coming weekend she lined up some condos to look at based on a list I provided her, but none panned out. But Lynn had done her homework prior to meeting with us. She found a condo complex in Cornelius that did still allow rentals due to a grandfather clause and that happened to have two units up for sale. Although a bit over our price range, we decided to take a look. Turned out to be a perfect location, 3 bedrooms, ground floor unit and although not mentioned in the original listing, came fully furnished (huge bonus worth the added cost). It was turnkey ready for renters. Thanks to Lynn going that extra mile and doing the added research we now have a Haborside property we can use for family vacations and that, from the looks of it, will pay for itself! Our closing was Oct 31 and so far we are pretty much booked right through until April! I also wanted to mention, that she was very attentive throughout the entire process. Thanks so much Lynne!!

So very grateful to have Lynne Priestley as my realtor!! Her knowledge of the Radbourne community and personable guidance selling my home the day the sign went up completely blows my mind!! From beginning to end Lynne continually held my hand from staging, offer of moving truck and having an answer ready within minutes. Lake Realty is lucky to have Lynne a member of their team!! Thanks Lynne!!

I had the pleasure (and very good luck) to work with Lynne Priestly on the purchase of my new home. She was absolutely terrific! Very professional, accommodating, flexible and responsive. She understood what I was looking for and zeroed in on my needs very quickly. Wonderful to work with and kept me updated every step of the way. I would highly recommend her. She made the entire process easy.

We used Lynne Priestley to sell our home in Davidson, NC and she was outstanding! She spent hours answering our questions, developing a solid marketing plan, providing information on comps in the area and hosting several well attended open houses. She brought in a fabulous photographer and stager to showcase our home online, which brought in serious buyers. She was wonderful in keeping the transaction moving along and getting to closing in a timely manner. Lynne Priestley is an extremely professional, responsive and personable realtor. We would recommend her to anyone!!

I worked with Lynne Priestley as the builder/seller with one of her buyer clients. She is detail oriented, negotiates well on behalf of her clients, yet is reasonable and pleasant to work with. We encountered a few unexpected challenges along the way and I really appreciated her calm demeanor, positive attitude and problem solving abilities. We would not have closed the transaction without her expertise. I look forward to working with her again!

We recently completed the purchase of a home, we are so glad that Lynne was our agent. She was there every step of the way, answering to any requests or questions we had, her communication skills are excellent and guided us through the process in a calm and easy way to understand. No matter what method of communication, Lynne always responded immediately. If I was to purchase another property or recommend a realtor to anyone, Lynne is our number one.

Working with Lynne was flawless. She made the experience easy and comfortable as a first time home owner. She is very knowledgeable, helpful and welcoming. She would find the answer to any question that I had as fast as possible.  After we had sealed the deal, she was still willing to reach out and help us in any way and she was always available.

I'm so glad we partnered with Lynne Priestly as our agent. Her marketing expertise and attention-to-detail were valuable assets. She did a beautiful job listing our property and was very responsive to inquiries. Her ability and availability to show the property helped make the process so easy and in this case, really quick!  I wholeheartedly recommend her as an agent. She is professional, warm, and clearly committed to satisfying her clients' needs.

"My husband and I said throughout the entire process that we had won the realtor lottery. Lynne worked tirelessly with us to find meet our very specific and unique list of requirements for our 2nd home. She also guided and advised us as to which areas would be best for what we were seeking which was invaluable due to our lack of knowledge in the local area as we were purchasing a 2nd home and resided primarily in Ohio. Her expertise in this department were incredible. She has a vast amount of knowledge about Charlotte and the surrounding areas that ensured that not only did we get what we wanted but we bought in a location that will be a great investment as well. During the negotiation process we encountered some unexpected issues and Lynne actually worked with and organized countless contractors on our behalf to go out to the property, advise and assist us in how to proceed with the process. At the end of the day we got absolutely everything on our list and even more! We couldn't have done it without her assistance. Having Lynne as our agent really was winning the realtor lottery."

She connects, engages and gets the job done! Lynne is kind and a delight to be around — very much a people-person with top-notch communication skills. Her work ethic is admirable.

Toni F. 

Her attention to detail and ability to anticipate issues is spot-on, something I admire in a marketing professional. Lynne is highly regarded for her work ethic and contagious enthusiasm for whatever she's working on
