My name is Michelle Parris. In 2002, I came to Davidson, NC on vacation and loved it so much, I stayed! I’ve seen much growth in my adopted hometown since then and look forward to sharing all the great places to eat, drink and stay.
Upon arriving from Southern California, I worked on-site for a Fortune 500, new home Builder for 5 years. After that, I went in to General Brokerage and have been with Lake Realty since October 2008.
Prior to my NC move, I was a Home Loan Underwriter and Bank Auditor for 10 years. This experience along with my degree in Business Administration/Marketing from the University of La Verne has proven invaluable to my clients. Understanding both sides of the home buying process ensures that I make all the right steps to get the deal closed. Whether you are a first time homebuyer or seeking a luxury, waterfront home or somewhere in between, I have the knowledge, experience and expertise to help make your dreams come true! Who better to buy your new home or rental property from?!
In my spare time, I enjoy being on the lake, working out at the gym and showing dogs.

Outstanding professional and top notch in every way! We were lucky to have found one of the best realtors in the field to introduce us to the Charlotte market. We started working with Michelle remotely about a year before we moved to the area from out west and from our initial meetings to the long days filled with visits to numerous potential homes, she exceeded every one of our expectations. From her vast knowledge of both the area/market and the NC specific rules and requirements, Michelle helped us navigate the negotiation and purchasing process. She was relentless in her pursuit of understanding of our 'wants and needs' so that she could show us options and find a new home that met our expectations and lifestyle for the best value. Her responsiveness was amazing from the first time we met through even now - three months after we closed. We truly feel like we could not have navigated all the red tape and challenges we faced without Michelle. She continues to be our advocate and friend with a very difficult builder, follows-up with us on the progress of our open items and makes recommendations on how we can get things completed. We not only would recommend Michelle to anyone looking to buy or sell a house, but we also know that in the future as we look to buy additional property - she is the realtor for us. We are blessed to have worked with her and highly recommend Michelle to others.
Michelle is an absolute professional and a pleasure to work with. I find buying a home an intimidating process and was concerned about going through it. It turns out that my concerns were unfounded. Michelle and her team took me through pre-approval, listened to what I wanted and guided me through searching for my new home. She helped me find a place that I truly love. She worked with the team of lenders, inspectors and lawyers to make sure everything was done in a timely manner. She did this so well, that I was done with everything on my end weeks before the actual closing! This was the easiest large purchase that I have ever made. I have recommended Michelle to close friends who all have loved working with her as well. I will not hesitate to use Michelle again for any real estate needs in the future.
I would recommend Michelle Parris as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for their ideal home. After my retirement, my adult son and I decided to relocate from Maryland to Statesville, NC and he had a list of unique specifications! Michelle has excellent insight and helped me prioritize. We had a great amount of communication before we actually met in person. She is familiar with the area, experienced in NC real property laws and the loan process. Michelle made use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale within our chosen area of the college. Through contract negotiations, Michelle came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. She helped guide me through the home buying process, gave me multiple recommendations of inspectors so I could compare prices and make the choice, which was extremely helpful because I was not familiar with the area. Michelle stayed on top of her to-do list and helped me stay on track with mine. She returned all phone calls and emails within hours. I never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Michelle worked well with the listing agent and our settlement was the smoothest I have ever been through. She is absolutely the best in the business in my opinion and I have recommended Michelle to my sister who also wants to relocate to the area.
Michelle was the upmost professional, incredibly organized and thorough, and her assistance did not stop after the purchase. She made our entire purchase experience seem effortless and easy. I have recommended her to my friends and family. We'll definitely use her for our next purchase. Thank you Michelle for all you do!
We would like to personally thank you for assisting us with the sale of our home. From the beginning, you walked us through every situation that led us to close the sale in a reasonable amount of time. Selling a house is not easy, but we never dreamed it could be so stressful! Your handling of the mountain of paperwork, as well as addressing unexpected situations that arose, made it possible for us to understand and better deal with the whole process.
And best of all, we feel that we have a new friend! Best wishes for the future.
Michelle was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was very personable and treated my husband and I as if we were friends. We were relocating to NC and she was very instrumental in helping us navigate through the home buying process. She was knowledgeable and informative and always available every time we contacted her for questions and advice. She. promptly answered our text and emails. We would highly recommend using her.

Michelle was always there when I needed her. She knew when to let me think for myself and when to tell me I was crazy. I would have never found this property without her pushing me to find the perfect house. I had a hard time with mortgage companies but Michelle was there to back me up with them when they tried to give me the run around. If I ever sell my new house Michelle will get the listing.
Michelle you are a true professional! It was such a pleasure to work with you. You are a true go getter, but you know the value of listening to your client. Hearing from the seller that it was your personal note that drew them toward our offer is just one of your many assets as a Realtor. You made Condo shopping so much fun and very easy as well. Long after we bought I'm still in the mood to shop. I guess I want to see how much I've retained from the buying process, you taught us a good bit! I will recommend you to all; consider yourself our families realtor! Thanks for being the Best!
Dear Michelle, I wanted to thank you for working with our firm during the closing of Mr. and Mrs. Harmon. I admired your focus toward getting the proper dock survey from the builder. Overall, your professionalism and client-first mentality helped facilitate an effective closing. Keep our firm in mind should you have future real estate needs. I look forward to the prospect of working with you again.
Thank you for the time you spent with me last Fall. You are a class act in your profession.
I certainly will refer you if the situation arises.
All the best-Jay
