John & Erin-Marie Bove

John BoveWe both are originally from ‘Long Island’ NY and have ‘been there, done that’ as well, and decided after long winters with lots of snow and many hurricanes causing havoc, we thought there must be a better way, a better lifestyle, a better everyday living…better weather. Then we discovered the Lake Norman Region!! A great place to start your family, retire to, relocate or just get away.

We both come from very active families and the activities in and around Lake Norman and the greater Charlotte area continue to grow. Like many others who visited for the first time, we also fell in love with a vibrant and uplifting ‘place to be’.

John served in the fire service and in the public sector for over 30 years. Erin-Marie has worked as a cosmetologist/hair stylist for over 25 years and continues to show off her skills at Studio Sixteen in Denver. We both enjoy working with the public and we will dedicate our time & experience with you in your real estate needs.

We both enjoy boating and experienced the waters off of Long Island but having the beautiful surroundings of restaurants, golf courses, parks & beach areas along the shores of Lake Norman all year round continue to make this a relaxing and fun place to live.

We are down to earth, fun, enjoy life to its fullest and we have 4 adult children and understand blended families along with the various changes that occur. Our motto is ‘Live, Laugh, and Love’.

Our commitment to you is simply to provide you with the highest level of service in order to make the experience of buying or selling your home as headache free as possible.

Our realtor, John & Erin Bove with Lake Realty provided outstanding service and went above and beyond in the sell of our home in Denver, NC. From start of sale to the closing date, they kept us informed every step of the way with updates by phone or emails. If we had a question, we received a response immediately. No call or email was ever unanswered. Their professional approach and knowledge of the market was spot on and within just a few weeks we had a buyer. We HIGHLY recommend John & Erin to anyone researching homes in the surrounding areas of Lake Norman. They are the best!

John & Erin-Marie Bove of Lake Realty are very friendly & professional. We lived in CA and they were our eyes & ears here in NC while our home was being built. They kept us informed and sent photos of the progress on the construction and handled issues that came up. John is patient and explained all details of the transaction and both were available to answer any and all questions along the way. They are a great team and we really couldn't have done it without them!

John and Erin Bove of Lake Realty are hands down the best people, and the best realtors we've worked with! They were always there when we had questions or concerns, they were 100% in our corner, and were always willing to give advice and opinions when asked. They stuck with us through so much! I'm amazed by their patience, their knowledge, and their willingness to go the extra mile. Such good people you rarely meet! Thanks John and Erin!

Look no further. John and Erin Bove were great. John was extremely responsive. Very available. Answered calls promptly. Really listened to what we wanted in a home and worked hard to show us homes that fit our requirements. We would use John and Erin again if we bought another home. We highly recommend this team if you're in the market for a home in the Lake Norman area or any of the surrounding areas.

Erin and John Bove where are realtors. They took amazing care of us and guided us through every step of the first home buyer process. They were extremely knowledgeable and patient with us while we found our Dream Home. We could not have had a better experience or a happier result. Thank you so much.
