Buying a Home on the Lake?

When buying a lake home, there are a few more aspects to consider. The Living on Lake Lanier team has a close working relationship with the Army Corps of Engineers. They can offer additional insight regarding shoreline management, boat dock specifications and permits as well as what cannot be done on Corp property- which includes lakeshore rights where homes are located.

Offer and Closing

We will submit an offer once you have found the home of your dreams. We know how to obtain you the best price and terms on the home of your dreams since we are excellent negotiators. We will assist you in through the inspections, appraisals, closing, and Corp of Engineers change of ownership procedure after the offer is accepted (quick note: dock permits are NOT transferable). We hope to see you on the lake.

I am a BIG Teresa Smith advocate and I highly recommend her as your Real Estate Agent if you are looking for a home on/near Lake Lanier. Not only is she intimately knowledgeable of the lake and neighborhoods, but she also has a reliable network of professionals to help make an informed decision (Contractors, Architects, Core Rangers, etc). Teresa helped us find our new home in Flowery Branch after an exhaustive search in a very difficult pandemic market. She then turn around and sold our existing home at our asking price before it was even listed. Always patient, no pressure, and extremely thorough and responsive.

Teresa and her team were absolute professionals and absolutely "in our corner" as sellers. Teresa and her team were great about protecting our time and energy throughout the processes of selling our home - from scheduling the pictures, throughout the showings, and then when negotiating with the buyers. Even though I'm sure Teresa and her team had multiple clients while she worked with us, she made us feel as though we were her only concern - she was responsive to our calls, questions, and concerns - always providing timely and thoughtful responses. Truthfully, I'm glad she was on our "side" because she's a, tenacious, formidable agent that made us feel as though she would've gone into "battle" on our behalf. It's rare to experience this type of customer care any more these such it was a please to work with Teresa and her team.

My fiance and I were first time home buyers in the craziest market in history, and we couldn't have bought that first home without Mackenzie there to navigate us through the process. She was a joy to work with, as professional as they come, and one of the hardest working people we've ever met. We highly recommend working with Mackenzie if you are looking to buy or sell! You really will feel like a priority throughout the entire process. I am happy to say my fiance and I closed on a home in July, and we have Mackenzie and KW team to thank for that!
