Popular Community Adds Professional Staff
The extraordinary success of Lexington’s Saluda River Club, winner of the prestigious Best in American Living Award, – and ongoing demand for new homes within the luxury riverfront community – has led to the addition of two members to its management team. Andy White, Lifestone Communities, LLC partner, is pleased to welcome Kara Powell as Director of Business Development and Lisa Smith as Marketing Director.
With more than $30 million in sales in the past three years, Saluda River Club has become the most successful new home community in South Carolina history. “We’re honored with the distinction and excited about continuing the success of Saluda River Club.” says White.
The focus is currently on meeting the historic demand for the community’s unique blend of amenity-rich homes and a lifestyle sought by many of today’s new home buyers. “Kara and Lisa are experienced local real estate pros who are uniquely qualified to assist as we continue to raise the bar on lifestyle, gracious homes and customer service,” he adds.
Kara Powell has worked for the past five years as a Realtor with Coldwell Banker United. During that time she generated $15 million in sales and implemented strategies to build business and brand awareness.
