Lake Norman Realty Expands Statesville Branch and Welcomes Experienced Associates


STATESVILLE, NC – Abigail Jennings, President of Lake Norman Realty, is pleased to announce the recent expansion of their Statesville office located in the City Center at 211 South Center Street in downtown States. The Statesville branch has nearly doubled in size to keep pace with the rapid growth of Statesville’s real estate market. The expansion includes the addition of a large reception room, associate offices, two conferenced rooms, and a kitchen.

“We thank the Statesville community for choosing Lake Norman Realty for their real estate needs, and our dedication to the market is unwavering. Since opening a small office in Statesville in 2004, we have grown exponentially through our commitment to old-fashioned customer service paired with cutting edge technology and marketing services. We now have three County branches to conveniently serve Iredell citizens, in addition to our offices in Davidson, Denver, and Cornelius,” said Abigail Jennings.

In addition to the expansion, Lake Norman Realty announces the affiliation of four experienced associates at their Statesville office.

Twenty-two year Iredell County resident, Debi Hepfer, brings 15-years of experience as a realtor to the company. She said, “I believe communication is the key to a successful real estate transaction.” She is considered a premier real estate professional in the greater lake Norman area including Statesville, Troutman and Mooresville. Given her extensive experience, Hepfer can provide buyers and sellers with the resources and information needed in the buying and selling of real estate. She and her husband, Joe are the proud parents of daughter, Kelly Summer, and proud grand-parents of Taylor.

Billa Bolek relocated to Iredell County 10-years ago and said, “I am excited to join Lake Norman Realty for their extensive advanced training and dedication to customer care.” Previously Billa worked in land development, title insurance, and with a private lender; all of which brings additional expertise and added value to the office.
