“I have lived in the Charlotte area my whole life- in particular Denver/Lincoln County. I love the area have seen the area grow yet it seems like I still run into people I know everywhere I go. The Lake Norman area gives the perfect blend of having modern conveniences yet the charm of a small community feel. I have a degree in Communications from UNC Charlotte, where I met my husband, who is also from the area. My background in non-profit work, public relations, communications budgeting, and event planning and has led to an easy transition to working on the Fishers real estate team.”
Mark “Ruby” Rubenstein
Mark began his real estate career in new home sales, working for a national builder for over 13 years, where he first met Kay and Brian. Mark worked with Kay and Brian on several transactions on the opposite side of the table during his time selling new homes. After being so impressed by the way we do business and the level of customer service our team provides, Mark knew he had to be a part of our team, so he joined the Fishers Real Estate in 2020!
“By providing the highest level of customer service, and expertise, I’ve built lifelong relationships with my clients. In my free time, I enjoy all sorts of art, baseball, great conversation, exploring Charlotte and Lake Norman, and spending time with my family and friends! If you frequent any local coffee shops, you’re bound to run into me, enjoying a coffee! Please say “hello”, and I’ll buy you a coffee!!!”
