Lisa has been listing and selling homes of character in North Carolina since 1999, first earning her salesperson's license from the NC Real Estate Commission; and later furthering her real estate education to earn a broker's license. She is a Historical Residential Property Specialist and works closely with the National Trust for Historic Preservation; the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina; the Historic Preservation Society of Durham; and many other historic foundations, societies and specialists.
Lisa has always loved older homes. Back in the 1980s, she and husband, Terry, lived in and restored an old farmhouse in Simpsonville, S.C. More recently, Lisa and her family renovated and sold a 1940s bungalow in Durham's Northgate Park. Lisa's parents live in an 110-year-old farmhouse that they have renovated in the Fairview community of Fountain Inn, S.C.
When Lisa isn't busy listing and showing houses, she volunteers her time tutoring after-school children at Oxford Manor, a low-income housing project in Durham. She sings in a Praise Band and teaches adult Sunday school at church. She is a professional pet-sitter and owns four dogs, all which were rescued. She is also a founding member of the Triangle Adoptions Support Group, an organization for birth parents, adoptees and the parents of adult adopted children.
A graduate of the University of South Carolina College of Journalism, Lisa is a former newspaper editor and reporter. She and her husband live in North Durham, where they are members of Aldersgate United Methodist Church. Their son, Hunter, is an Eagle Scout and attends the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where he is working on his master’s degree at the School of Information and Library Science. Lisa also has a daughter, Adrienne, who is a marketing specialist in Charlotte
