Our Real Estate Company:  

Lake Norman's Exclusive Buyers' Agency

Our Real Estate Firm is called Find A Home Carolina. 

Ann and WayneWe Work Exclusively with Buyers.  Our firm does not accept listings and Never represents Sellers. Unlike 99% of other agents, we have no financial incentive to Sell you one of our firm's listings - because we don't take listings. We have helped hundreds of Home Buyers from all across the country with the Search, Evaluation, Negotiation, Inspection, and Purchase of their home. We believe strongly that we can help buyers make better educated decisions, save significant money, and reduce their stress. Best of all, our services are completely Free to our Buyer clients.

We previously worked with one of the largest real estate franchises in the country. After a few years with them, we outgrew that relationship and started our own independent firm, exclusively for Buyers, so that we could offer our clients the kind of exceptional customer service - without bias - that mega firms cannot. 

We have won some silly awards but we are most more proud of the "kind words", testimonials, and referrals provided by our clients. Read some of the Over 100 Client Reviews we have received from past clients. 

We have extensive market knowledge with over 15 years of experience in the Lake Norman and greater Charlotte real estate market. We can help whether you are making a local or long distance move. We have worked with all types of personalities and budgets. We are approved by all major corporate relocation companies. 

We are wired with all of the latest technology to be easily accessible whenever you have a question. Call, text, or email. We respond to all inquires very quickly.

Background - Graduated University of Wisconsin / B.S. Business Management.  Previous careers include owning a small chain of gift stores & coffee shop for 16 years as well as corporate jobs in sales management, marketing, and information technology for both small and large companies. 

Ann Kemp"I was born and lived in Wisconsin for many (cold) years! While it was a great state to grow up in and raise kids, the thrill of shoveling snow passed. When we realized that we could live anywhere, we did extensive research and chose to relocate to the Lake Norman area north of Charlotte. Now, I am a very proud North Carolinian - for 15 years." 

Are you relocating to the Charlotte area from another state? Boy, can we relate to that! After researching the whole country, we came to Charlotte for the first time for a long weekend to "check it out." We fell in love with the area and left that weekend with a contract to buy a house. We went back and sold our house in Wisconsin and never looked back. Now we can't imagine living anywhere else!

I work exclusively as a Buyer's Agent!   

From our first meeting, you will see that I am completely committed to helping you make good, informed decisions. I am dedicated to my buyers. When we tour together, you will have absolute confidence that you are seeing everything worth seeing without wasting any of your valuable time. From the initial search to the closing table, I will do all the research, leg-work, analysis, and follow-up to make sure nothing falls between the cracks. I will answer all of your questions and concerns. Finding the right house is just the beginning. I will be your advocate through negotiations, inspections, repairs, financing, and closing. I take great pride in providing the kind of exceptional customer service you'll be anxious to recommend to your friends.  

I'm NOT That Kind of Agent!

If you prefer to work with an agent that meets you wearing designer clothes, spike heels, and big hair driving a spotless vehicle -- keep looking.  I work long days - often showing 20+ houses in a single day. I climb ladders on construction sites, tromp through the mud showing vacant lots, and don't wash my car as often as I should. I will work just as tirelessly for you. 


Background - Graduated North Texas State University / B.S. Education. In addition to real estate experience, Wayne has an extensive background in marketing and sales management including writing, advertising, designing, consulting, and negotiating. 

"I am a Texan by birth, a Packer fan by choice, and a Carolinian by sheer logic. I met my lovely wife in Wisconsin. Decades of Texas heat, followed by a decade of Tundra cold, is ample experience to choose seasonal comfort. The Lake Norman area has four beautiful seasons; it suits us perfectly. Come check it out!" 

Full Service

You need information. I’m going to give it to you. Tours, maps, photos, lot boundaries, room sizes, and sales history. I’m going to give it to you. You need analysis. I’m going to give it to you. Neighborhood appreciation, sales trends, risks, and potential issues for eventual resale.

Your needs, your schedules, and your time tables drive my “To Do” list. I know that you are squeezing a home purchase into a busy lifestyle. I cannot make the process worry free because buying a home is kind of a "big deal." However; together we can divide the massive “To Do” list and I will take much of the burden from your shoulders. I don’t say "depend on me" lightly.


Brokering a real estate transaction is rarely a simple and straight path. The unexpected is often the expected. Nothing replaces effective communication. The best way to tackle a surprise is to address the issue immediately with all parties in the process. I will keep you informed every step of the way.


We work side-by-side, very long days, often seven days a week, and have managed to stay best friends. We love what we do and enjoy meeting new people. We are proud to count many past clients among our closest friends. We have raised four daughters, now grown. We are the proud grandparents of four and love our Great Dane puppy, Napa. We enjoy traveling when we have time off. 

We understand that it is hard to choose someone to trust.  
You can trust us.
