Lane McKinney

Founder of The McKinney Team  

Realtor / Broker

I am a former Army Green Beret from Ft. Bragg, NC, a full time Real Estate Professional and the founder of the McKinney Team. When it was time for me to leave the service, I wanted to stay in NC and wanted to be near the water. I had a passion for water and I love the mountains, but to do my due diligence I had explored many of the beach towns up and down the coast but just couldn’t find one that fit me. I wanted a thriving economy and I didn’t want live somewhere that did not have a large seasonal population change. I came to the Charlotte area and it was perfect for me. I had my water with beautiful Lake Norman and surrounding lakes, the mountains a short drive to the west and I had the second largest financial hub in the United States of America, how’s that for a match. I have always pushed to be the best at anything I do and if it included uncharted areas for me, that was even more appealing. I came to Coldwell Banker and created the McKinney Team with the mission of offering better service and better logistics than a single agent could offer their clients. As a Team, we could be available to clients on time, be multi-lingual, multi-cultural and be able to service the largest customer base available. We maintain a goal of continuing to grow our Team and bring Lake Norman a new generation of Real Estate Professionals. We like to tell our clients up front what to expect from our Team and to always hold us accountable each day. We make the commitment to our clients to serve them with the same principles and duty that I kept in the military. Customer service being our highest priority, we always strive to serve you and always be ahead of the curve. Every customer becomes a part of our Team as a past client and the relationship moves far past the closing table. Give us a call and see exactly what that means for you.
