About Julie McKinney

A native of northwestern Pennsylvania, I have proudly called North Carolina home since 1985. Having experienced city life in Greensboro and Charlotte, I permanently relocated to beautiful Lake Lure in 2013 and enjoy the more laid-back lifestyle of mountain lake living – not to mention the beauty of Western North Carolina! During non-working hours I enjoy working in my yard, tackling household projects, bird watching, theatre and being entertained by two Labrador Retrievers and a Catahoula/Heeler mix!

In Greensboro I was employed in the advertising profession, serving as a client services coordinator, print production coordinator and small business owner.  I later moved to Charlotte and started my real estate career in 1996. My ability to listen to and meet the needs of clients has been key to my success as a real estate professional, as well as an ability to coordinate the numerous details of each transaction to promote a smooth closing experience.  Keeping up with technological advances in the real estate industry will have me continue to be able to provide the absolute best service for home buyers and home sellers in today's tech-savvy world! 

I became the owner/broker of Keller Williams Lake Lure Professionals Realty Group on August 1, 2017 and in October made the decision to end our affiliation with a national brand.  Because our area is a special way of life, we changed the name to Lifestyle Properties to reflect our market and relaxed lifestyle.  Geographically we provide expertise in Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Bat Cave, Mill Spring, Tryon and Rutherfordton (Rutherford, Polk and Henderson counties).
