Lake Norman Realty - Cornelius Testimonials

Absolutely loved working with Emilie!

Helped us in every aspect of purchasing our home. I highly recommend Emilie & Walt to anyone wishing to have a great real estate experience.


I cannot even begin to say enough about Emilie and Walt and what they have done for me.

Always answered my phone calls. Ran out of their office to meet me when a new property became available. They helped me to find the perfect home and I am sincerely grateful for everything they did for me and many things I would never expect from a realtor.


I can’t say enough good things about Emilie & her husband Walt.

What a great team they are. They even helped put us in contact with a local finance company. We truly enjoyed their personalities and now consider them friends. They really went above and beyond their services as they helped during some issues that had come to light. We highly recommend them for your real estate needs. You’ll gain a friend for sure. Great people

Simply the Best!

Relocating shouldn't be hard right? Well it is and if you had all the trouble we had you might have have quit like we wanted to do. We found a home and the Davis Team was who showed it to us. It wasn't the right home, but that didn't stop them from taking me out to view homes for the next several days. They continued to make all the calls and setup the appointments without hesitation and we couldn't have lucked out any better than we did that day. Walt and Emilie also helped us with our home out of state, so that it would have the best chance for selling quickly, and it did! These are truly good people who care about you and not just a commission.

Janice is a great Realtor!

She worked with me to find a great home. She was there through every step of the process, from searching for available properties to negociating the offer, conducting the inspections, and closing the loan. She was very professional, responsive and timely; she kept me informed through the whole process. I highly recommend her and will most defintely use her for my next real estate deal.

Walt and Emilie are the best in the industry!

Our first home purchase was nothing short of amazing. This team was prompt and thorough. They were always available to answer our questions and reassure us throughout the entire process. You will be making the right decision by choosing these two!!

To anyone considering a real estate purchase, we can strongly recommend working with Walt and Emilie Davis.

We recently purchased a property from Walt and were very happy with the entire process. We were out of town on a cruise while negotiating the purchase. Walt took care of all the details and handled the paperwork so we were able to enjoy our trip. When got back, the closing was all set up, all we needed to do was sign the paper. It was a great experience and we look forward to working with Walt and Emilie on any future real estate needs. "

Tom and Pam

Walt and Emilie, I can't begin to thank you enough for your efforts and your friendly professionalism over the last 2 years.

I feel like you showed me every available lot in the High Country and made the entire process as easy and as stress free as purchasing property can be. You were more available to me than you needed to be, and responded to every one of my questions and all my whimsical thoughts and ideas either with a phone call, an email or a text. It genuinely mattered to you that these purchases be exactly what I wanted, and never once did I feel pressured to make a move despite you spending literally hundreds of hours with me and my family. Two purchases together so far, and I look forward to heading back out tomorrow to look for one or two more!

We've known Sally Sutherland for several years both as a friend and neighbor.

So when my wife and I considered purchasing an investment property for my son and new daughter-in-law, we went to Sally and asked her to help guide them on their journey of purchasing a "first home." Sally was incredible! She carefully and methodically walked them through the process step-by-step, she answered all of their questions, in terms that they could understand, and minimized or eliminated all of their confusion and fear. At the end of the journey, we purchased a great investment property and my son and daughter-in-law found their perfect first home. In hind-sight, we couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Not only is Sally a great realtor, she is an exceptional teacher. I would most certainly recommend Sally if you are looking for a home in the Lake Norman area.

Daniel Garton

We were introduced to Sally through our relocation company.

She did a phenomenal job in helping us find our new home. She was accommodating, knowledgeable, and just an all-around genuine person. We are grateful to her and would highly recommend Sally to anyone in need of a realtor!

- Kim and Mark Witthoft

Sally was a delight to work with from our initial meeting through the settlement process.

She provided many helpful suggestions which resulted in my home selling much quicker than anticipated! Her attention to detail and professional approach made the selling process less stressful for all involved! Her warm personality and her kindness set her apart from others in her field. Thank you, Sally!!!

Kristy Merical

Sally was far "above and beyond" in every aspect of helping us sell our home.

From the smallest detail to the most important strategies in marketing our home, Sally had everything covered! In addition, her advice on marketing our home and negotiating the final price was always right on target. Our situation was even more difficult as we'd moved away from the area and were trying to sell the house vacant. But we never worried because Sally was always there, giving us updates, ensuring our house was looked after, and doing everything she could to help us sell as quickly as possible without leaving money on the table. Mission accomplished - our house sold quickly, and at a great price! Sally gets all the credit!!

Scott and Katie Griffith

We have been moving from France to the Charlotte area, and finding a house from abroad was quite a challenge.

Hopefully we had the chance to meet with Sally, who has prepared everything before our arrival date. The next morning we were visiting houses and the 1st one was exactly what we were looking for, and we are feeling so well in this place. Sally has been very professional, understanding perfectly our needs, despite the language barrier. Beside that, she's an absolutely kind person and if we would look for a house in the future, I would definitely not deal with anyone else than Sally. Thanks again Sally for your amazing work, and for the nice person you are.

Maxime Lecoindre

An awesome, wonderful, caring, hard working individual is how I would describe Sally Sutherland.

From the beginning to the end of selling my home, she was always there for me. Not only did I have the best realtor, I also have a friend for life. She is one of a kind. Thank you Sally for all you did for me.

Nancy Taylor

Sally is personable, knowledgeable, and professional along with having a work ethic much like mine.

While helping me find the right house in Mooresville, Sally kept me up-to-date and in front of the competition. I couldn't be more pleased

Eric Bevill

Sally is such a wonderful person and the best realtor we could have asked for.

Her attention to detail made it very easy for my family to sit back and let her handle everything. She is certainly 5 stars.

Scot Gelinas

Sally exceeded my expectations.

She went above and beyond to help our family find the perfect home. She was absolutely amazing. Her knowledge was invaluable. In addition to finding us the perfect house in the neighborhood we wanted, she was a pleasure to work with. I will recommend her services over and over.

To wonderful, thoughtful, caring, kind you!

You were a true blessing to us! We are extremely appreciative of the hard working and thorough efforts. Very detailed and always a step ahead of our expectations. You truly made our home buying experience a real blessing. We gained a great friend and real estate agent this year! Thank you Sally.

Eric and Stacia Mueller

Sally Sutherland is an excellent realtor and exceptional person.

She went above and beyond to get my home on the market and get it sold. In one day! I felt like I had a friend walking through the process with me from beginning to end. I will definitely recommend her to anyone putting their home on the market or looking to purchase a home. Thank you Sally for all your hard work.

Lora Wilson

Sally Sutherland is the most conscientious agent I've ever witnessed.

She goes well beyond the normal expectations of marketing, promoting and presenting a property for sale. She offers great advice in preparation for putting the property on the market and follows up with venders to make sure the work is done with the highest quality. I would recommend her to anyone seeking to sell a property in the Lake Norman area.

Michael and Lauralee Bailey

Sally was a pleasure to work with.

She was able to surmise from our brief description what type of house we were looking for, and the right location. She was very professional throughout the entire process from our first meeting to after the closing and beyond. Her professional advice saved us from pursuing property that was not suited for us. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone who is looking to purchase or sell a home in the Lake Norman/Statesville Area.
