Lake Wylie’s Best Realtor

January 2015

Better Business Bureau

Southern Piedmont

13860 Ballantyne Corporation Place

Suite 225

Charlotte, North Carolina 28277

This brief letter is in reference to the professional services of David McCorkle, BIC of Lake Wylie Realty, Clover, South Carolina.

I retained the services of Mr. McCorkle (David) in February 2014 to sell the home of my deceased father, Robert Glenn Smith, Jr., who resided at 11101 Windy Grove Road in Charlotte, North Carolina. I could not have secured a better realtor.

As I live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I required someone who could and would effectively represent me in Charlotte, communicate regularly with me, and adjust his schedule when necessary to meet with me during my monthly trips to the Charlotte area.

David certainly performed the expected realtor duties—listing the house and showing it to prospective buyers, representing my needs and expectations to potential buyers, and taking the sale through the closing process. His phone calls and emails were frequent; I was fully aware of developments as they occurred despite being 200 miles away.  David routinely altered his busy schedule to make himself available for personal meetings with me when I traveled to Charlotte, and travel plans were often made at the last moment.  All of these actions were expected by me, as David came highly recommended. But he went beyond the expected duties of a realtor. On several occasions, David visited the property simply to determine what work, if any, was needed. When he discovered a problem (or potential issue), he secured reputable people to make minor repairs to my father’s home, always with attention to cost. There were a couple minor, cosmetic issues that he handled himself, without charge. Adding to his work was the necessity of David serving as a liaison between myself and the property’s co-owner—my father’s second wife, a woman with whom I refused any direct, personal interaction.

Even more remarkable was David’s work following the actual, formal closing of the sale. He met me at the property when my family and I came to clear the house of its furnishings. David spent most of that day—using his own time—moving furniture, clearing the crawlspace and exterior buildings of stored household items, and removing trash and discarded items from the premises. I have never heard of nor imagined a realtor helping in such a manner, especially after the sale of property was final.

It is extremely rare that I find myself genuinely impressed with anyone, especially in the business sector; however, David was that rare individual. He was knowledgeable, effective in his dealings with prospective buyers, and forthright  in his dealings with me. He routinely communicated with me, offered sound advice, and adapted his schedule to mine, often rescheduling his own earlier-made commitments. He demonstrated professionalism in his work and inspired me with confidence in his handling of the entire process of representing the property and my needs—doing all of this more as a friend than as an agent Again, I could not have secured a better realtor.

Sincerely,

Diann Townsend

Lake Wylie Real Estate, Charlotte Observer 11/15/14

By Allen Norwood: Special to the Charlotte Observer 11/15/14

Realtor Don Stephens of Lake Wylie Realty admits that the boom in Lake Wylie home sales last month caught him a bit by surprise. Sales up more than 64 percent? In October, when the summer lake season should be winding down?

He has been selling homes on the lake for more than three decades, and has never seen anything quite like it.

“I don’t think it through too much, though. I just try to stay by the phone.”

Lake Norman and Lake Wylie saw strong sales in October, according to this week’s report from Carolina Multiple Listing Services. Sales, or closings, at Norman were up more than 50 percent from the same month last year. Impressive, but Wylie did better, with sales up 64.3 percent, tops in the entire regional report.

To add a bit of perspective, sales in Charlotte rose by 9.8 percent and sales for the full MLS were up 13.3 percent.

Why Lake Wylie, and why now?

Stephens, who’s with Lake Wylie Realty, points to several factors: Interest rates, especially on large loans, remain a bargain. New roads and shopping centers provide access to the airport and to upscale stores and restaurants.

Wealthy retirees, for instance, can choose the lakefront lifestyle without giving up other things that are important to them. “We’re not way out in the country like we used to be,” Stephens said.

They can choose the lakefront lifestyle and still be just minutes away from their grandchildren in Charlotte. “Probably 50 percent of the business I do has a grandkid component,” he said.

Most of those retirees are relocating from other parts of the country, he said, and most find him online.

It has been years since Wylie was “the river” flanked by the simple “cabins” that longtime Charlotteans remember so fondly. Large homes have gone up, just as they have on Norman.

“Lake Norman has dominated the market for $1-million-plus homes for a long time,” he said. “We see that starting to change here pretty quickly. Nobody builds anything little anymore.”

As waterfront lot prices go up, homes get bigger. Lots of buyers – and some lenders – follow a rule of thumb that the lot price ought to account for about a quarter of the total value, Stephens said. So if the lot sells for $250,000, the new house ought to cost $750,000 – and there’s another $1 million place on the lake.

Low interest rates on jumbo loans make that even more attainable.

Add one more crucial factor – “There’s a new sense of optimism in the market that was absent,” Stephens said – and you see sales climb 64.3 percent.
