I was born and raised in the Charlotte, NC area. In fact, my Father’s relatives were some of the first families to settle the Catawba Valley Region, around the Hickory, NC area in the early 1700’s, traveling down the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road that went from Philadelphia, PA to Charleston, SC.
I grew up in Huntersville, NC, in the Northern part of Mecklenburg County, NC. I graduated from North Mecklenburg High School, then graduated from Pfeiffer College, Misenheimer, NC, with a Business Administration Degree. I have also earned my Master of Business Administration Degree from Pfeiffer University, Charlotte, NC Campus.
After College I took on many roles in my parent’s business, Whitener’s Greenhouses. My parents were in business for fifty years until their retirement in 2014. I spent 23 years actively working in our family business, in which we grew all our own product which consisted of vegetable plants, indoor house plants, rose bushes, poinsettias and bedding plants. Our market consisted of Mecklenburg County, NC and surrounding areas. We had a loyal following of home gardeners, local florists, garden centers and hardware stores. If you are in the market for some type of plant, I can probably direct you to the right place in Mecklenburg County and the surrounding areas.
My interest in Real Estate began when the land surrounding our homeplace and business started selling, and I decided I needed to learn the real estate market. We still haven’t sold our property, but the area around us is changing with Single Family Homes, Townhomes/Condos, Commercial/Industrial and apartments being built daily.
What I miss most from our family business, are the relationships we had built with our clients. I would like to begin building a client relationship with you, one built upon Trust, Integrity, Honesty, Compassion and being Forthright. My hope is that you will let me serve you in your Real Estate Needs. Whether you are looking to Sell, Buy, Invest, or Relocate, the Barclay Realty Group can help.
