Renee Hornor has called Lake Norman home for thirteen years and serves as both a buyer’s and seller’s agent at Mooresville Realty. Because she’s an excellent listener, she connects well to people and is able to make real-estate transactions virtually stress-free. “I’m a detail-oriented person by nature, so I always get back to my clients quickly and with the information they need to make good, informed decisions. The result is that people find a home that fits their lifestyle and budget perfectly.”

Favorite Local Grocery Store: We love Whole Foods because of its commitment to selling food without artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors; its steak selection is second to none. And now it offers local delivery!

Favorite Coffee Shop: I like to stop by the Starbucks in Birkdale and then do a little shopping. For meeting clients and friends, I prefer Waterbean. The coffee is amazing and there are lots of tables (and even a private meeting room).

Favorite Restaurant: Our family loves EEZ Fusion Sushi because of its fresh sushi and amazing, savory Asian-fusion entrees. It offers a stir-fry bar that allows you to choose noodles or rice, a protein, a flavor, and a vegetable. I love the fried rice with chicken, sesame garlic ginger sauce, and vegetables.

Birkdale Village Community Tour


Relationship to Birkdale: Our family made Birkdale our home for over nine years, and I still have many friends and clients who live in the neighborhood.
