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.
What can you do with a Fine Arts degree? For Abigail Jennings, the answer is creatively and successfully operating the oldest real estate firm in the Lake Norman region. Her innovative vision combined with the business training she received working alongside her father, company founder James Jennings, has allowed her to grow her firm during a time of unprecedented upheaval in the real estate market. Since 1998, she has served as President of Lake Norman Realty, maintaining the reputation for integrity, and unparalleled service that has been a company hallmark since its formation in 1978.
Company Mom, Artist, Friend, Mimi … Always an inspired and gracious hostess, Jane Getsinger is also instrumental behind the scenes. She’s an integral part of Lake Norman Realty’s fabric and identity, and her beautiful pastels grace Lake Norman Realty’s offices. An active grandmother, Jane co-owns Lake Norman Realty with her daughter Abigail, and manages the City Center office building in downtown Statesville. A native of Statesville, and a lake dweller for over 30 years, she now calls 20 pastoral acres in Troutman home with husband Layton Getsinger.
