Lee Ann Richards
Lee Ann began her career in the real estate business after studying graphic arts in her home town of Chicago. Leaving the city, she moved to a picturesque lake community in Northwest Indiana with her husband John, a custom builder and entrepreneur. While assisting John with the design and furnishing of new homes, Lee Ann developed a passion for architecture, home décor and real estate. In 1993, Lee Ann became a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Agent. A short time later, Lee & John purchased a summer home in the North Carolina Mountains and in 2000, moved to North Carolina full time with their three sons. Lee Ann opened her own real estate brokerage in the community of Valle Crucis, where she quickly became one of the area’s top performing agents. After moving her family to the village of Blowing Rock, Lee Ann’s business followed suit and she opened her second brokerage, Realty on Main. Lee and John missed the lake life they had enjoyed with their family, so they decided to move to Lake Norman, build a home and buy a boat! Lee Ann’s 22 years of experience, knowledge and dedication insures you will always get the personal and professional service you expect when buying or selling your home, land or commercial property!
