Our Team

How are we different?

Our team takes a unique approach to real estate that stems from our experience in active adult communities. Our goal is to provide an educated buying, building, or selling process for our clients, specifically in active adult communities in the Charlotte, NC area.

We are available seven days a week to provide a service unparalleled in the industry. In the past 8 years working specifically in the Charlotte area, our team has sold over 500 homes in active adult communities, we even brought in a New Construction Specialist to assist if you decide to build new.

Read a little bit about each of our teammates below to see how we really are above the crowd.

Reid Baxter


Reid is the Developer of CharlotteRetirementCommunities.com. He began his real estate career more than 10 years ago with Pulte Group, as a New Homes Sales Consultant, in Sun City Carolina Lakes. While working on-site at Sun City Carolina Lakes he witnessed many clients going through the building process blindly, without buyer representation, creating unnecessary stress. Reid saw the opportunity to help buyers through the building/buying process, instead of just selling them a home. That’s when he decided to build a unique real estate team specializing in active adult communities. Reid has taken real estate to the next level by adding positions such as a Construction Specialist and Real Estate Consultants with New Home and Resale Home knowledge. Reid currently resides in Waxhaw, NC with his wife and their three children.
