Abigail Jennings and Jane Getsinger, owners of Lake Norman Realty along with Linda Hecht and Nicole Hecht Howard, owners of Hecht Realty are pleased to announce the news of their companies joining together under the Lake Norman Realty name, with merged operations taking effect July 1, 2021.
This historic alliance joins the two oldest Lake Norman real estate companies, representing a homecoming of sorts for both. The visionary leaders of each entity began their real estate roots in the early 1970s under the mentorship of John Hecht in Denver, NC. James Jennings went on to found Lake Norman Realty in 1978, while Bob Hecht took the reins at Hecht Realty. In 1998, Jennings’ daughter Abigail stepped up to lead Lake Norman Realty while Hecht’s daughter Nicole did the same for her company following Bob’s passing in 2019.
