Lake Realty

Lynn Keating

Professional woman smiling in colorful blazer.

I was born and raised in Harrison, New York. I have always loved going to model homes in new housing developments in the area. I started doing this as soon as I got my Driver’s License. Still love doing that. After graduating from Berkeley, I worked for Westchester County, working my way up to Deputy Clerk and Chief of Staff of the County Legislature. However, my love for real estate was calling me and I got my real estate license in New York and I sold for 26 years until my husband and I retired to the beautiful Lake Norman, North Carolina area. We settled in the quaint college town of Davidson. Davidson is home to Davidson College and reminds us of Westchester – only without the ice and snow.

After settling in Davidson, I obtained a North Carolina Real Estate license. As a realtor, from the buying side, I strive to make the transition into a new home as easy as possible. I know what it is like to move to a new area and establishing new relationships with neighbors and business. On the selling side, I used my experience to make the selling cycle as simple as possible. I joined Lake Realty whose motto is ‘With Us it’s Simple’. That fits my philosophy. I work very hard and listen more than talk to make sure each want and need is met. Let me help assist you.

Mike Spunich has been our Realtor for years, and when it came time to prepare my parent’s home that was built in 1957 to sell after their passing, there was no doubt who we’d call to help us. We’ve never seen anyone work as hard to sell a home as Mike. He goes the extra mile to print large, all-color brochures about the home and its features – and he printed them again when the price changed! He places placards around the home to remind prospects to look at specific details that may have been missed otherwise. He follows up on EVERY showing and calls the buyer’s agent to get their feedback, then relays that feedback to the seller. He took time with us, didn’t rush us and answered all of our questions. He provided us with checklists which really helped us to prepare the home. He even went so far as to provide us with contact information for contractors who could help us with drywall and paint! He was available 24/7 even late at night when we had questions and needed his advice. My brother, who didn’t know Mike like we did, instantly felt comfortable with him and told me many times how happy he was that Mike was our Realtor. Since we were selling the home in the Fall, before a showing, Mike went by the home to make sure everything looked great on the outside and inside. All of the little things he does he doesn’t have to; that’s what really makes a difference to us. He genuinely CARES about his clients. We sold our parents’ home quickly because Mike did his homework for the market in that area. His years of experience priced the home correctly for the market and as a result, we sold quickly. We highly recommend Mike as your Realtor. It simply doesn’t get any better than Mike Spunich. His character and integrity are of the highest caliber. We trust him and not only is he our Realtor, we made a lifetime friend and consider him part of the family.

Michael Spunich Is YOUR Agent!

We crossed paths with Michael one cold and rainy day while he was showing a piece of property next to our home. This was a piece of property that had been listed for years. We had never seen an agent show the property or even inquire about the property. They simply put a – For Sale – sign in the yard and went on about their business.

We are here to tell you that Michael is not that type of an agent. He takes his real estate very seriously and goes above and beyond what is expected of him! Did I mention that he DID sell that piece of property, that day!

We were immediately curious to talk with him about his strategy because we had our house listed, on and off, for over 2 ½ years, with no luck. He was excited to meet with us and share that strategy! Within days he had our house on the market AND within (7) seven days, he had our house under contract. Not only with (1) one committed buyer but also a backup contract in place.

His work did not stop there! He was a part of every minor detail from that day to our closing date. You would’ve thought with as much attention as he paid to us, that he only had this (1) one listing or even that he was selling his very own home. That was not the case at all! He cared about us, our concerns, our expectations, and our outcome. He spared nothing when it came to time or money to get his job done.

We are now using Michael to represent us as we purchase our new property. At this point, he has represented us on both sides, as a sellers agent and now as a buyer’s agent.

If you are looking for an agent you can trust, we highly recommend Michael Spunich. Do not waste any more time, give this man a call today!

Mike Spunich has been a trusted realtor for us for close to 7 years. We have done over 6 real estate deals with him involving where he has represented us as both the buyers agent as well as a seller’s agent. In both of these, he has worked very hard to go above the call of duty to help us get the best deal. This year alone we did 2 sales with Mike’s help where we got multiple offers in under 24 hours. He provided fantastic guidance in proactive checklists for us to address as well as pragmatic insights on the competition in the neighborhoods. In both recent sales, we set the benchmark record for the highest value in the neighborhood while having the deal finalize in under 24 hours. I would strongly recommend Mike for help with residential, investment, or commercial real estate since he truly knows the Charlotte market and has a fantastic proactive attitude combined with a very strong network to get deals done in a short time, which directly translates to maximizing value for sellers and buyers as his clients.

Mike Spunich was great. Very informative and very patient with me when the short sale I wanted went under contract to someone else. He patiently waited with me while it came back on the market and did everything to get me the best deal on the house. He even sent me videos of the home inspection that I was unable to be at. I am a first-time homebuyer and he walked me through everything even giving me tips and pointers on what I needed to do to take care of the house. I really enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy a house.

Mike Spunich has been a wealth of information for me and my husband as we began the process of buying a vacation home. He answered all our questions and went out of his way to find out the information we needed to make informed decisions during the buying process. He was prompt, professional, and always willing to help. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You won’t be disappointed.

Mike Spunich made our home-buying experience extremely easy by taking care of all the details. I didn’t have to manage any of the timeline. Mike fully understands communications in the 21st Century – he made himself available at all hours of the day. This was crucial while maintaining a 9-5 job. I would highly recommend Mike Spunich as your realtor for your next home-buying/selling experience.
