ABOUT REMAX EXECUTIVE: Working with one of the most successful, progressive and top RE/MAX franchises in the nation, RE/MAX Executive has received Broker Owners of the Year 3 years straight.
ABOUT LIBBY:As a native of North Carolina, I was born and raised in Union County just outside of Charlotte. As the oldest child she was raised in a home with parents who were owners and operators of several businesses. I was exposed early to a life of hard work and learned that you had to pay your dues to be successful. I am the niece of one of Charlotte's first female real estate agents who is still licensed today. I valued her opinions and thoughts on my career path.
During high school and college I was a competitve and strong athlete. My tenacious spirit and enthusiam was noticed by everyone and my professors believed that I would be successful and possessed endless energy. I was elected as captain of several sports teams and assisted our athletic director with intramural sports in college.
As a graduate in Business from Wingate College I started my career with a young attorney in his new law practice. It was a fast paced enviornment with a busy court schedule and real estate closings. I immediately found my passion in real estate and took night classes to receive my North Carolina Real Estate License as well as attending Central Piedmont Community College for Paralegal training. After a number of years I accepted a position with a Title Insurance Company and soon promoted to underwriter for commercial and residential real estate policies.
During my first few years in Charlotte I was approached by several law firms to work in their real estate departments and soon decided that I missed the personal contact of agents and joined a busy law practice. She handled an average of 75-100 closing transactions per month and gained a vast knowledge of lending, title issues, sales and marketing.
In 1997 I married my husband, Drew, and we mutually decided that it was time to put my energy to work. I decided to call a broker with RE/MAX that I knew from the law firm and was welcomed aboard. In my first week as an agent I listed 20 properties and sold two homes on my first day. I had found my niche and my friends and family knew it. With a high energy level working 24/7 was not a problem. I enjoyed the challenges that each deal offered and the excitement that comes with satisfied clients.
I trusted in my "black book" of contacts that I had developed over the years.....from surveyors to attorneys, developers to insurance agents, I made sure that I had the right resources in to support my real estate sales.
My philosphy was simple: take great pride in offering my clients a comprehensive knowledge of the local marketplace, as well as expertise in creative marketing and financing. I have built my real estate business on trust and hard work and dedication to giving a commitment that lasts well beyond the closing.

Motivated, honest, experienced.....and always just a phone call away. Libby is a source of knowledge and information with the people skills to make things happen. A true professional, but more importantly Libby is candid and sincere; working for you and with you to achieve your goals. Libby came highly recommended to use and after two years with confidence we can highly recommend her to you.Dan & Cristy D.
As a licensed agent who is non-active I had numerous resources and choose Libby because of her experience and knowledge. Not every transaction is by the book and she was creative in her solutions to each objection that our buyers delivered. It was "stress free" and I will continue to refer business to her and will not hesitate to use her for our current home listing.Walter & Annie R.
Libby is "top notch" in my book. As a real estate investors, with over 30 properties in 7 states, I felt as if she was my full time agent.....a right hand. With constant updates and supervision of difficult repair issues I never lost confidence in her. She was professional every step of the way.....so much so that I offered her a job. If she ever decides to move to Washington her desk is ready. John S. (Washington)
I have purchased two homes from Libby and had no idea that she was in her Rookie year during my first home purchase. Not only did she know the market but she reviewed every item in the closing package with me prior to closing. I had alot of questions and each one was answered in a way that I not only understood but that she put into practical terms. I will no doubt use Libby for my next home purchase. Jeff S.
I can't believe that you took my "WANT" list and turned into my "HAVE" home in just one showing.....you hit the ball out of the park on that one. Kim & Steve M.
Libby.....you were more than prepared. When you showed up with a cooler full of drinks and movies for the kids I knew we made the right connection. You not only helped find our home but made our move here more enjoyable. I am glad you are my Realtor and also my Friend. Katey S.
