Donna Putnam is a licensed real estate broker and has been my Transaction Closing Coordinator handling my closings ever since I started in real estate in 1994.  She is exceptional knowledgeable in this field having once handled closing for a large RE/MAX office in Charlotte where I first met her. Donna handles everything after the contract is written and dealing with inspections, repairs and legal requirements so that the closing can be as stress-free as possible. Clients rave about her caring service and professionalism.  


My husband Ray, who is also a licensed real estate broker is a source of information and contacts for people who are wanting to know more about the area and Charlotte. He is often referred to as the Mayor of Ballantyne because of his long term commitment to both Ballantyne and Charlotte. He founded the well respected "Ballantyne Breakfast Club" community forum in 2001. He also founded the original Ballantyne Candidates Forum & Chili Cook-Off  event which is now called the Ballantyne Community and Candidate Picnic.

He served by appointment to the Road & Transportation Committee of 21 in 2008 as the representative for South Charlotte. He participate in the selections of police chiefs, a city manger and on a panel reviewing a Charter School proposal for the Town of Matthews. He has just completed two term on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Commission in 2017. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Ballantyne Chapter of the Chamber of Commerce and is the founding chair on the South Charlotte Partners task force. Ray was honored in 2017 the February issue of the Charlotte Magazine to be listed as one of the fifty most powerful people in Charlotte. One last thing to know about him is how much pleasure he gets from being "Santa" every year at the Ballantyne Hotel.
