James A. Jennings


When Lake Norman was created in 1963, many considered it an idyllic setting for a summer cottage. Today thousands have realized the lake is an even better place to call home. Understanding and appreciating the enormous potential of the Lake Norman area, James A. Jennings founded Lake Norman Realty in 1978. His goal was to offer home buyers and sellers consistently professional services tailored specifically to the lake market. Today his vision has become one of the largest real estate firms in the Charlotte region, and his daughter, Abigail Jennings, carries on his tradition of leadership.
