Our Story

DwellNova was born during the recession in Charlotte, when the founders witnessed a cleansing period of our business — the strong survived. This, coupled with the evolution of technology, has really changed the way we work. Traditional main street business is a thing of the past, but it’s not just enough to be online either, you have to be pushing sales through multiple online marketing channels. We are more of a technology company that specializes in real estate.

We view the model of realtors being independent contractors out to fend for themselves as broken, it’s inefficient, and if you want to compete and serve your customers and clients exceptionally, you need to pool resources and inventory. DwellNova is a marketing alliance. It combines the energy of four of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s rising and top stars and makes us a powerhouse in a competitive arena.

Charlotte Luxury Real Estate Agents offering unparalleled performance, integrity and professionalism.

Says Giles Barker who been selling real estate in many of its forms internationally since 1998. “We see Charlotte as an exciting place to live and raise a family. Affordable living, wonderful climate, great schools, excellent employment opportunities anchored by the Banking Industry and plenty to do in every direction, are just a few reasons Charlotte has prospered over the last decade. No wonder it has made it to become one of the most popular cities to move to in recent years, and this trend shows no sign of slowing.”

What makes us different? “We go the extra mile marketing, advertising and branding our listings to ensure that our luxury homes are exposed to the widest audience while maintaining an element of exclusivity – plus we are known for our vivacious tenacity of not resting until it is sold.” Giles adds “We focus on Prime Charlotte Real Estate and have collected a vast database of active buyers. We are a specialized group backed by the global reach of the Sotheby’s brand, crossed with the entrepreneurialism and personal touch of a boutique agency. We hope you find this business model refreshing and inviting.”

After studying abroad and majoring in both Journalism and Spanish Literature, I moved to New York City where I began selling residential real estate. The pace of the city and the nature of real estate dealing there gave me the experience to handle just about anything! There I learned the value of “immediate” and “dedication” when dealing with what is most people’s most valuable asset, their home!

Having moved a few times myself, I empathize with my clients. Whether you are moving from your parents’ home to your first home or selling your starter to home to move into a larger home as your family grows, trust that I have been in your shoes.

Every broker in Charlotte can get you the same information. You may even be able to access that information yourself. The intangibles however, are where a broker provides value. And that’s where I promise to be more valuable than others. I can help you price, value and stage like few other can. Give me a call and let’s start this journey together!
