“I am a native of North Carolina and am licensed in North and South Carolina.
I was elected four terms as Mayor of a small town in Union County from 1997 through 2005. From this experience, I have extensive experience with local municipal government with Planning and Zoning, Land Use Plans and working with builders and developers in both commercial and residential fields. I have worked with DOT officials on road construction and planning for eight years plus. The knowledge I gained working with government opened a new door for me in my career as I love working with both the private and public sectors with real estate. This is why I moved forward with my real estate career.
I am experienced with short sales and foreclosures; first time home buyers; buyer and seller agent; relocation and commercial. My family has military ties as my husband is a Vietnam Veteran, my father a decorated WWII hero with Purple Heart and Silver Star metals and my son was in the Army National Guard and is now working in law enforcement married to a Nurse! I enjoy working with relocation and helping a new family find that perfect home as I am so familiar with the small towns and suburbs of Charlotte.
During my tenure as mayor, the town started a police department. I have sold many law enforcement officers, teachers, firefighters, and EMS personnel their first homes and have listed their current homes when they were ready to downsize or had outgrown their current home.
I have been involved in the mental health field on various Boards since 1998. I am currently Chair of PBH, Chair of Cardinal Innovations and a Board of Director of Have a Heart Foundation which is a non profit Board that helps law enforcement and their immediate family in the time of crisis.
To me, real estate is to provide my clients with the highest level of customer service with timely communication, being responsive to their needs and providing them with the most helpful resources that I can whether they are buying or selling their home. From the first time homebuyer to the family downsizing because their children have spread their own wings, I will work to help with every real estate need that I am challenged with. I believe that the personal touch and face to face communication is the key to success in today’s challenging real estate market. I want to give back to the Veterans, law enforcement, firefighters, teachers, and EMS employees who provide services for the citizens of my country to help them be able to share the pride of ownership!” – Lucy Drake
