I've been selling properties on or near the lake for more than 12 years. I find that my buyer clients simply fall in love with our lake lifestyle, the way I did.  

I grew up with parents who were transferred often. They always let me participate in the real estate side of relocation, which got me interested early. As an adult, I was an on-air journalist, writer & photographer - for radio, TV and print, & moved more than a dozen times. I always took the pictures for the Realtors I hired. It always got the house sold fast!

The first thing I did in moving to Lake Norman was do virtual tour photography for several large real estate developments. It was one of those that sent me to real estate school so that I could also sell their properties.

My journalism past gave me the gift of asking questions, listening, & meeting deadlines - all of which are critical in the increasingly complex world of purchasing real estate. I have bought and sold 9 homes of my own.  Moving & relocating is complex: I have been there, and I can help. With my husband & real estate partner, Matt, I have lived at the lake 15 years, loving every minute of this lifestyle.

Whether you are selling your home or buying, I will do my utmost to keep it simple, and to treat you like family.

Let us help you 'come home' to Lake Norman. You will be glad you did.

My Reviews

Moving six times in the past 25 years we have worked with many realtors. Eloise worked tirelessly over several weeks and weekends finding us the perfect home. Coming from Florida we knew little about the area but knew we wanted to live near the lake. After finding the home she guided us through all the details while we were still in Florida. We have never had a better experience than dealing with Eloise Morano.

Thank you, Eloise, for all of the hard work you put into selling our house.  Anytime I emailed or texted you, you were there for me with answers.  I know it takes a special person with a lot of knowledge and patience to work with someone in another state.  Your friendliness and understanding during this transition time helped us get settled at our new location.  Thanks again for being that special person that you are, and we wish you much success in your future.  You get 5 stars from us.

Bernie & Carmen

For 40 years I have trained hundreds of sale representatives telling them how important follow up and customer service is to success. You exceeded what Joeanne and I would expect. You listened to our needs and helped us find our dream home. You and Eloise were easy to work with and didn't mind our sometimes direct opinion about some of the homes you showed us. You kept trying and finally you succeeded. You both have been helpful beyond what one would expect. You never said you couldn’t do it. We needed a landscaper and you found us one along with the 30 other contractors. You have gone from real estate agents to friends. I would recommend you both with a thumbs up. Anyone looking for someone to help find your dream home look no further.

Eloise has been fantastic. She sold two properties for me quickly and for a great price. She also helped me find a fantastic new home. She's a joy to work with and is extremely knowledgeable.

Stephanie M.

I had a great experience with Eloise and Matt. I flew out from San Diego and I found my forever home in two days!! Since I was moving from the West Coast I needed Eloise to help me with the inspection and repairs before I arrived. She was a 'Saint' and helped make everything happen! I can't thank you enough, Eloise, for making my transition to NC go so smoothly. I love my lake view!

Donna S.

Eloise was patient, responsive, and knowledgable through our whole home buying experience!

Rebecca O.

Eloise is great!! Eloise was out ahead of every problem, old lake property has many. She has such great energy and enthusiasm. I highly recommend Eloise - make your experience purchasing or selling much easier.

Marcia P.

ELOISE MORANO had just the right touch of encouragement, knowledge, patience and skill that made this a really fun process. My sister and I, and some of our friends, were looking to purchase a lake home where we could all gracefully (or not!) retire. Getting four or five women to agree on anything is a challenge. She was so great.

Carolyn C.

Eloise, thank you. You have been a great partner in finding our future home, and went above and beyond any other realtor that we've worked with in the past, with referrals on surveys, inspections, dock construction, etc. While we have a lot of work ahead, your support has been key to getting started "on the right foot".

David & Terri R.

"Not only were you professional and respectful but you went beyond the scope of any realtors we’ve ever met! Both you and Eloise have been supportive when we were feeling like we’d never find our “perfect “ home! GOOD NEWS... WE DID! Thank you both for your unwavering help! You surpassed your realtor duty... you supplied endless list of vendors and turned us on to your FABOO BUILDER! We are beyond proud and excited to be a new neighbor in THE POINT, and call Mooresville N Carolina OUR NEW HOME!" 

Joeanne G.

Many thanks for all your time and energy spent hiking all those hillside lots on Lake Norman with us to find our little piece of heaven on the lake. We are still amazed that you found a flat lot on a great cove!

Terri R.

 Eloise, we could never repay what we feel we owe you for helping us find our dream home. This house is all we have ever looked for, all rolled up in one home. The location, style, everything is perfect. Putting us in touch with your builder was an important day in our lives because after looking for 7 1/2 years, we can finally say "We're Home."

Ronnie & Denise M.

Very professional. Great follow-up with clients!  Always on top of everything. I would recommend the Morano team and Lake Realty with great confidence to anyone.

Samantha Terres, PLLC

My client was considering a move to North Carolina & searching for something near the lakes by Charlotte. She had seen a couple of agents pop up in her searches. I took over to research the agents. Luckily, I found Eloise Morano -- she is the bomb!

We talked about my client's needs, and Eloise totally got it & ran with it. Not only did she find my client the perfect house, she than arranged for all kinds of renovations.

Eloise gives 120 percent. If you or your client want someone that is knowledgeable, personable & a great agent -- go with Eloise. I have been an agent for over 11 years, & I know the good ones!

Tera Vessels, San Diego CA

Eloise provided excellent service and professionalism. She was sincere and helpful from beginning to end. She is just the type of agent you need when you are relocating cross country and purchasing your first home. She was extremely flexible with showings and availability. She gave me her educated opinion which helped me make more informed decision. She is a great person with a big heart and knows the area so well. I would definitely recommend Eloise.

We decided on a family move from three different states in order to coalesce around my aging parents' health care support and needs and focused on Mooresville/Iredell County area. My Parents, siblings and I had very different family and housing needs, not to mention timelines and budgets. Eloise Morano and Lake Realty made it happen for us seamlessly.

She helped my brother and family identify a new construction neighborhood and builder close to his relocated business, found an ideal existing move-in ready house one street over for my parents who needed to have all their main living on the first floor and needed to be close to medical care and shopping as they don't drive much. My needs were much more specific for my partner and myself and Eloise found the perfect house on the lake that met and exceeded all of our expectations. All of this happened within one year of the group decision to move!

The time, effort and attention to our personal needs that Eloise put in were phenomenal and made what could have been a very complicated and stressful situation go seamlessly from housing search to closing. I highly recommend Eloise and Lake Realty!

Wendy L.

Eloise is a very warm and upbeat person who has contagious energy. As our agent, she was wonderful to work with as she made herself available to us anytime we needed her, and we even ended up executing a contract over 4th of July weekend!

She worked really hard for us to solve each and every issue that arose throughout the process and took great care to educate us along every step of the way. I probably asked her hundreds of questions during the buying and due diligence process, and she was always so patient and responsive through it all. Eloise was proactive throughout the whole process with us, and we appreciated her hard work so much.

We would definitely recommend her to others!

Liz F.

Anyone looking for a home in the Lake Norman area, contact Eloise Danniels Morano! She is absolutely fantabulous!! Codey Vaughn and I are so fortunate to have had her help during this journey!

Anna & Codey V.

Eloise is the best. We could not have asked for a more helpful agent. She has been there every step of the way plus through a very long process to help us achieve our dream.

Thanks Eloise!!

I usually avoid giving the very highest ratings because in real life, the very highest and the very lowest scores are tossed as unrealistic. In this case, however, I do not hesitate to give the highest score to Eloise. 

Her Broker assigned me to her after I was cruising around on the web for Lake Norman properties. I had just listed my home near Holden Beach, NC and was interested in the Lake Norman area. She got in touch with me right away. We talked at length about my wish list for a new home. She was very responsive and always either answered my calls or returned them within a short time....big thing with me. I made plans to visit the area. She prepared several showings meeting the criteria that I had shared with her. I actually found a couple that would work great for me.

Well, several months later and all the while, Eloise kept in touch. All the homes I saw were sold and I got a contract on my home at the beach.

I called her and told her I needed to make a whirlwind trip to see homes again. There was one that appealed to me as I scanned them online. Indeed, it was the third one we saw and bingo...we went back to the office, wrote up the offer, we negotiated, went to contract. The home inspection has been done, remedies will be done in a couple of days and I am as "pleased as punch"!

YES!!! If you read this and don't hire Eloise Morano as your're not looking for quality and heart, all in one package.

Happy Client, June S.

Eloise was awesome through this process, and went well above and beyond to help my family buy property on Lake Norman. We do not live in the area, and when I asked her to check out this location for us, she even rode a jet ski over so she could see it from the water as well. She helped us coordinate with some of the local contractors, even meeting them to get things done when we were unable to.

Thank you Eloise!!!

Shannon K. & family

We have worked with Eloise for the past several months in our efforts to buy a home.  Eloise is the most incredible real estate agent we have ever worked with.  She always treated us like we were her only clients.  Day, night, weekends, she was always willing to schedule showings and answer our questions.  Eloise is a gem.  She has such a positive approach to selling.  We found a house we loved  - and Eloise was there to walk us through the entire process.  From the inspector to the lending institution, she made it very easy to close on our new home.

When we decided to put our house on the market, we were inundated with requests from agents wanting to handle the sale. We told all of them that we already had the best agent in the state.  Eloise is the only person I would work with.  She is now handling the sale of our house and we have no doubt that it will be a seamless process.

Without hesitation, we will recommend Eloise and Lake Realty to any of our friends looking for a real estate agent.  She has been there for us every step of the way and our working relationship has grown into a friendship.  All of your agents should model themselves after Eloise.  You are very fortunate to have someone like Eloise representing Lake Realty.

Eloise Morano is absolutely the best realtor I have ever worked with - and I've dealt with almost 20 as either a home buyer or seller through the years. She's extremely knowledgeable and professional, passionate about her work, and an absolute joy to work with (she's just a wonderful person). Eloise went above and beyond to help resolve a variety of issues that arose completely outside her responsibility as my realtor. She advocated on my behalf like a life-long friend, constantly kept me updated, and provided GREAT referrals for other services I needed. I couldn't be happier or more impressed with her work - she's amazing!

I have worked with Eloise Morano for a decade in the housing and real estate market. Her knowledge of the Lake Norman area along with her professional and personable approach with people gives me the confidence to refer friends and prospective clients her way. Eloise has the ability and patience to communicate with her clients in a way that helps her understand their true needs. I know you can count on her to go the extra mile when it comes to buying or selling your property, which is why she is the one who listed & sold my own home!

Teresa Blake, Old Hickory Construction, Inc. Denver, NC

My wife & I worked with Eloise to buy our first home, and even though it was daunting at first she made the process easy and painless everyone she recomended was amazing, from the morgage broker to the home inspector. Top notch service, I couldn't have asked for a nicer more professional realtor.

Dave G.

Eloise is wonderful. I would absolutely recommend her. It is my pleasure to have met her and her husband Matt - and relocating from San Diego to Mooresville, I am privileged to call her my friend. Thank you for all your help making my relocation possible. I never worried about what was going on because I knew you were on it. Thanks!!

Donna S.

We bought a house! Our first home!

What a long & stressful process. Eternally grateful to Eloise Morano for never taking no for an answer, & fighting for us the entire time. You are wonderful! 

Kamie & Dave T.

Our experience working with Eloise was, to say the least, simple and thorough. She was extremely helpful when meeting me on a weekend to look at property around Lake Norman, with complete listings for all the properties that we were going to see that day. Once we decided to put in a contract, Eloise did a wonderful job getting us through the diligence period, to and through the close. Since we were closing the transaction remotely, she went out of her way to get us some additional information related to the property, dock, and utilities that was totally appreciated since we were unfamiliar with the entities to contact. If you are looking for someone with a vast knowledge of the area, quickly picks up on what you are looking for, and will be truthful and honest with you regarding everything, then you will be hard pressed to find anyone better than Eloise!
