Eric & Nancy Ferrara Purchased 2018 Lake Rabun

“The Lake Team was wonderful in helping us find the perfect family home at Lake Rabun. They are very knowledgeable about the market at both Lake Rabun and Lake Burton allowing us to choose what house and lake would ultimately be best for our family. Even after the sale they have reached out to make sure we don’t have any questions about settling into lake life. I would use them again without hesitation.”

Margaret Moore Purchased 2018 Lake Rabun

“We can’t thank you enough for making our dreams come true after coming to Sky Valley and the whole Clayton area for more than 40 years. We never expected to fine such a beautiful home for our retirement. You spent a year with us, always extremely nice, polite, patient and understanding our wants and needs. Each issue was never a challenge for you. Short notice from Nashville, not a problem. You took time to explain the lakes and each area thoroughly.We knew the moment we walked through the front door of Georgia Lane, this was going to be our home. God has blessed us with so much, and with you. After the closing you gave us the Perfect Gift Basket. On Christmas Day, we filled the basket with the local wine and food for our dinner and celebrated on top of the boat house. What a great meal and day it was. The popcorn is always a favorite with us. Friends, family and even we, are in complete awe of lovely “Lake Rabun Historical” book. What a great idea. A little history will sit on our family room table forever, all, thanks to you and the great team at Harry Norman.Brad, thanks for all the information, history, laughter and fun times we had while working with you. It was a real pleasure to meet you and the team. Highly recommending you to everyone.”

Pat & Lois Mickler Purchased 2018 Lake Rabun

“The Lake Team and Michael McGauhey were so helpful in selling our lake home.They kept on top of the home concerning items that needed to be done while on the market: landscaping, painting and any other items that needed to be addressed in order to sell the home. If we didn’t have the the contacts to address these issues, the Lake Team had a list of reputable service companies that could help us. We felt the Lake Team went over and above the customary service as a realtor. And once we had an offer on the home, we were able to close within 30 days. They were THE BEST!”

Jane Heeney Sold 2018 Lake Rabun

“We very much enjoyed working with Michael and Craig of the Lake Team and Brad and Elizabeth. There is no Team in the area that has a better grasp of the real estate market than they do. They are efficient, organized, and communicative. Purchasing a property from out of town can be more stressful than usual, but they took care of all of the details so that we didn’t have to worry. It was a pleasure working with The Lake Team and we’d recommend them to anyone buying or selling a property on the lakes or in the area.”

“We feel very fortunate to have been connected with The Lake Team! Michael, Craig, Brad, and the entire team were such a pleasure to work with in purchasing our Lake Rabun home. Throughout the process, Michael and Craig’s knowledge of the market and advice regarding all aspects of the transaction were invaluable to us. More importantly, we always felt as if they had our best interests at heart. From our first phone call with Michael expressing interest in the lake to the closing of our new home, each member of The Lake Team was diligent, thoughtful and knowledgeable…it was by far our best home purchase experience. We highly recommend the Lake Team to anyone needing assistance in purchasing or selling a home in the area. We are thrilled with our home and are delighted to have made new friends in the

Mary and Cameron Bready Purchased 2018 Lake Rabun

“When we met with Michael for the initial meeting he was very realistic about the time it would take to get the price we wanted for our lake house on Burton. He was spot on. When it came down to a negotiation between two competing offers he more than did his job to get us what we wanted in a timely manner. I highly recommend The Lake Team if you are selling or buying on Burton, Rabun or Seed.”

“The Lake Team did a terrific job helping us find the perfect home on Lake Burton. We had some very particular requirements regarding location, view and size of home for our large family and they listened to everything and did a wonderful job narrowing down our search to only those homes that met our criteria. They were professional and knowledgeable and always available to answer questions. When we did make an offer, they worked diligently on our behalf to make sure that the entire process was thorough and seamless. We could not recommend them more highly to anyone interested in a lake home on Burton, Rabun or Seed. They were instrumental in making our dream of a gathering spot for our family a reality.”

Julie and Andy Andrews Purchased 2017 Lake Burton

“It is my pleasure to refer The Lake Team and Brad Fisher to anyone considering the purchase or sale of property in the lake communities of North Georgia.  I was introduced to them by two different friends, both very positive about their experiences purchasing lake houses with the Lake Team. My journey to purchasing a house at Lake Rabun included years of looking at properties on different lakes.  Every time I called, sometimes at the last minute- someone from the Lake Team always made time to show me a property.  In the buying process, I had the opportunity to work with Michael, Craig, and Brad at various times.   I enjoyed working with them together and separately.  It was more like working with a group of friends than real estate agen
