NCLakeFront.com Realty Testimonials
A Worthwhile Buying Trip -
We spent several days searching the area for possible homesites. After three days, we'd given up hope of finding one that was right for us. Then we met Barbie Fuller at NClakefront.com Realty. She spent plenty of time with us showing us different options, and helped us find a site in Anchors Landing that looks like a perfect fit. We needed additional help with our property after the sale, and Barbie has always been there with a fast, helpful answer.
Our Lake Retirement Spot -
Our picture of retirement included a house at the lake, close to the city; in the country yet near the water, yet not too far "out," with a fishing boat and a pontoon tied up to the dock. More specifically, for climate and location, we wanted it somewhere in North Carolina. We were picky, so we asked Realtors in different parts of N.C. to keep us informed of prospective property. Within a week after Realtor Barbie sent me information on a prospective development called Lakeshore Landing, I met her... in this forest. We could see, even prior to development, that Lakeshore Landing was an ideal location and held the vision for a small beautiful community. We now have 2 acres there, 2 boat docks (that is deeded with the property), and an extremely positive and cooperative team of builders and realtors to work with. We not only have our potential home site, we already have a friend like Barbie in NC. We're now looking forward to neighbors!
Escaping Florida's Hot Summers -
Thanks to NClakefront.com Realty and Matt assisting us in our property purchase at Serenity Bay. We were a bit apprehensive to purchase in a location unknown to us, but the information on the web site was very appealing and informative. After communicating with Matt repeatedly and meeting the developer onsite to answer all our questions, we are pleased with our decision. I am looking forward spending family time at the lake.

Planning for Retirement -
Barbie and NClakefront.com Realty gave us a very high level of comfort that we were making a solid investment for retirement. They had tireless, personalized service that led us to believe that we made the right decision every step of the way.
Family is important -
Matt Lahtela was the salesperson for my lot in Anchors Landing (as well as my sister’s). He is an easy going fellow – and trekked through the lot over and over again as I tried to make up my mind as to whether or not to buy. He was patient – even seemed to enjoy my endless questions, and endless need to walk the lot again and again. He was always pleasant when I went to his office. He has an easygoing personality – and seems to be enthusiastic showing the same lots over and over again. I personally wouldn’t enjoy his job – but I’m glad he does. He’s good at it, and knows the business well. He always made me feel comfortable. The result was that both my sister and I bought lots.

Delighted with the buying experience -
Barbie and Matt, You did a great job with the lakefront lot, it's nice to have a foothold to the good life. All our questions were answered promptly and well, we're looking forward to some appreciation of our investment ( keep those prices rising by selling more lots ).
Found the perfect waterfront property -
We would like to thank you for your professionalism and expertise in assisting us in our recent purchase of lakefront property on beautiful High Rock Lake, NC. We very much appreciated your input and advice and believe that we now own a very desirable piece of property on which we are looking forward to building our lake home.
Simple and Easy -
We found you very professional and responsive. We are, as you know, absentee landowners who purchased the lakefront lot on Kerr Scott lake near Wilkesboro. The transaction went smoothly, all paperwork was in order and your service was as good as it gets. It actually was smoother and with less hassle than the purchase of our home here in Washington. Thanks again for the good work.
An easy decision -
Just a short note to thank you for your great assistance with our purchase of our lakefront property on Lake Hickory. From the outset when we initially started our search on NClakefront.com we were met with nothing but great service from Matt. His knowledge of the area and what it provided to us was outstanding. He showed us different properties in our price range and answered all of our building questions and made our final decision much easier.
Happy with investment -
A note to NClakefront Realty. It was a pleasure working with Matt Lahtela. He was very knowledgeable with the do's and don'ts of buying lakefront property. He was pleasant and patient in assessing our likes and dislikes. Thanks to Matt we found a great property at Plantation Pointe which has appreciated nearly 30% since we purchased it a year ago. We're very pleased with our purchase and hope to build our vacation home soon. Thanks Matt!

Leaving New Jersey's High Taxes -
I want to take a moment to thank you for your help and assistance identifying not one, but two beautiful lakefront properties for us in North Carolina . Your professional, no pressure approach to assisting us every step of the way was refreshing and welcome in an often high pressure world. When I started looking for lakefront property on the internet I was happy to find your website with information on lakefront property on Kerr Scott Reservoir. You answered all my questions, made it easy to understand what is involved in purchasing in a new private community, and got me a great deal on the property. You helped me identify a local attorney who helped us (which is important when you are far away in New Jersey like we are), and you made the transactions pain free. Thank you. I would recommend your services to anyone interested in looking at beautiful properties in the North Carolina area. You tell it like it is, outlining the positives and potential concerns of each property, and you made it easy to do business remotely. Thank you, again, and I will be happy to pass your name along to anyone I know who is interested in North Carolina property.

Dedicated Investors -
I wanted to thank you for your expert assistance in selling my lots on Lake Hickory and Lake Rhodhiss. In both instances the minimal turnaround time to sell far exceeded my expectations, and I was just as pleased with your help and expertise in assisting with the negotiations and the eventual closings. Thank you and the entire NC Lakefront staff for your professionalism and courtesy from start to finish.

Seeking a second home -
We want to say thank you for your assistance in finding us a great piece of lake property on Lake Hickory. Barbie took care of all the details. She made it easier than opening a new account at the bank! Now, if we could just agree on the house plans!!
Loved it so much - We bought two! -
We want to thank you for all your assistance in both our purchases and sales of our two lake front properties. We appreciate doing business with honest, sincere, loyal individuals like yourself. You really know the true meaning of the term, "Customer Service". We think of you not just as a business associate but also as a friend.
Thanks again for all your hard work and putting up with us!
Property Value Doubled -
Thanks Matt for steering us in the right direction regarding our Anchors Landing waterfront property. Although we have yet to build, we are extremely satisfied with our new homesite on Gunpowder Creek. In fact, since we purchased our lot just a few years ago, we have been offered more than double what we paid for our property. Also, congratulations in establishing NClakefront Realty. We have heard that you are doing an excellent job for your customers.
Our Lake Investment -
We purchased the lot by phone for an investment. We had the opportunity to see it a few months later and it was as described. In the 5-6 months we have owned the lot, its value has increased almost 15%. As an investment, we believe we are on schedule.
Found the perfect lake spot -
We had a great experience dealing with NClakefront.com Realty. We contacted Matt Lahtela last summer and planned a trip to Hickory to look at some lakefront property. Matt was great to work with. He was professional, knowledgeable about the entire area and answered all of our questions. He had several properties for us to look at and gave us a tour of Hickory, Granite Falls and the surrounding area. We made an offer on a lot and before we stopped at the first rest stop on the way home, Matt called to let us know the seller had accepted. The rest was done over the phone and by mail. Thanks again for all of your help.
