Lakefront Specialist in the North Carolina Foothills Call "the lake lady" at (828) 291-1992


Our family has had two real estate dealings with Barbie. Our first was finding our lake lot for our retirement home. Barbie is THE expert on the lake. She listens to what you want in a property and knows where to find them. She was extremely patient with us in our search, since the type of lot we wanted was in low supply in the area. We did find our perfect spot and she helped us to get a very fair price. As we begin our process in actually building our lake home, we wanted a property that could house us so that we could be hands on with the construction. She helped us locate and purchase a 1946 refurbished bungalow that we could not be happier about. The process was easy, and Barbie goes out of her way to help with all the things that a long distance customer requires. I would unconditionally recommend Barbie Fuller to anyone who is looking for property in the Hickory, North Carolina area. She is great to work with, and if we ever look for property #3, she will be the first person we call!

  I thought you did a great job in marketing our Plantation Pointe Lake Hickory lot. You were always professional and represented the buyer and seller very fairly. You also kept us well informed and did a very good job on the final selling price negotiation. I highly recommend you for buying or selling lake property in the Hickory, NC area.

Thanks for a good selling experience.

Dear Barbie,

It has been a pleasure getting to know you and working with​ you on our real estate transactions. Your positive attitude and professional approach as both our buying agent and selling agent, particularly in the face of adversity from others involved in one of the transactions, has been greatly appreciated. Your insights, factual information on North Carolina lakefront properties, and ability to point us towards answers that were not always easy to find helped to make our business with you just that much better. We wish you all the best in your new business.

Hi Barbie, 

Thank you for everything. We appreciate you seeing every detail thru in the selling of our lot and would highly recommend you as "The Lake Lady". 

Sincerely,  Lloyd & Kelly Pikula

When My wife and I decided to retire, we both embraced the idea of relocating from New Jersey to a warmer climate and being able to live on a lake. After some investigation and compiling a list of "likes", we decided on North Carolina mainly for its mild climate, friendly people, beautiful countryside and favorable cost of living. Then, after looking into the positives and negatives of the many possible lake options North Carolina has to offer, we settled on Lake Hickory.  Since we wanted to be "on the water" the next decision was to either buy a existing home or purchase a buildable lot..... buying a lot appeared to be the best choice for us since it gave us the option and flexibility of being able to build on our schedule. The next step was to find a local Real Estate Broker to assist in the process, so we turned to the internet to find our guiding light. As luck would have it, we came across area lake specialist Barbie Fuller and crossed our fingers. From the first phone conversation Barbie has been a joy to work with, she scoured all available lots and narrowed it down to a few that met our criteria and quickly pointed us toward the "perfect" opportunity. If you are considering relocating and/or purchasing a lot or home in the Hickory area, we highly recommend you consider contacting Barbie Fuller. Barbie was helpful, friendly, thorough, professional, knowledgeable, and everything one could ask for in a real estate partner. She made the process of locating and purchasing our lot both seamless and remarkably smooth. We remain in touch, and Barbie continues to be more than a valuable, willing resource just a phone call away. We now also have our first true friend in Hickory and likely you will too.

Retiring from NY to NC

         My wife and I took numerous trips to NC looking for a plot of land to build our future retirement home. Finally, we met Barbie. She did not waste our time and showed us only the types of property we were interested in. In one day, with the help of her professional opinion, we decided on a plot that met our criteria. Once we returned to NY, she took care of appointments and provided us with a bank and lawyer. The entire experience went very smoothly. We are now proud land owners and cannot wait to begin building. Barbie's honesty, dedication, and professionalism made this all possible.

Thank you.

A Worthwhile Buying Trip -We spent several days searching the area for possible homesites. After three days, we'd given up hope of finding one that was right for us. Then we met Barbie Fuller. She spent plenty of time with us showing us different options, and helped us find a site in Anchors Landing that looks like a perfect fit. We needed additional help with our property after the sale, and Barbie has always been there with a fast, helpful answer.

Our Lake Retirement Spot -Our picture of retirement included a house at the lake, close to the city; in the country yet near the water, yet not too far "out," with a fishing boat and a pontoon tied up to the dock. More specifically, for climate and location, we wanted it somewhere in North Carolina. We were picky, so we asked Realtors in different parts of N.C. to keep us informed of prospective property. Within a week after Realtor Barbie sent me information on a prospective development called Lakeshore Landing, I met her... in this forest. We could see, even prior to development, that Lakeshore Landing was an ideal location and held the vision for a small beautiful community. We now have 2 acres there, 2 boat docks (that is deeded with the property), and an extremely positive and cooperative team of builders and realtors to work with. We not only have our potential home site, we already have a friend like Barbie in NC. We're now looking forward to neighbors!

Tough Market -In 2006, my husband and I purchased lots in Broadwater Landing and recently found it necessary to market for sale. In a declining market, Barbie worked tirelessly to produce a deal. We have learned a lot about investment strategy for the future from Barbie and want to thank her. Thanks Barbie!
