Reynolds Lake Oconee Properties, LLC is pleased to announce Chip Perry as Salesperson of the Month for February 2019 with five transactions totaling over $2.8 million. This is Perry’s second consecutive award for 2019 and he has also been named a Million Dollar Club Member by the Lake Country Board of Realtors each year since 2015. We sat down with Perry to discuss his history with Reynolds and what he looks forward to in 2019.

You’ve in lived in Reynolds for about eight years now. What brought you to Reynolds and what have you enjoyed the most about your lake life?

There was always a desire in my heart to live at Lake Oconee. Growing up visiting the area and learning how to water ski, fish, and drive a boat on Lake Oconee always made this place feel like home. When Lake Oconee Academy was built, we were invited to visit by friends, Chris and Kelly Ingle. My wife, Tina, and I loved what we saw and decided it was time to move. It was a quick decision and one we have never regretted. Both the school and the community have been part of making this an incredible place to raise a family.

What is your favorite thing about Reynolds?

As a family, we love The Lake Club’s amazing workout facility, as well as the easy access to the pool and lake. We also love the incredible restaurants within the community. Chef Moore has made this a great place for foodies!

This is your second consecutive Salesperson of the Month award of 2019. In your experience, what’s the trick to making a successful sale?

Number 1 would be prayer. No tricks – Really listening and focusing on what your client is looking for and then guiding them in the right direction. Buying a home or homesite is such a big decision, so being part of helping a client find the perfect fit is one of the most exciting parts of my job.

I also have an extensive knowledge of the continuously changing inventory, including current releases and new resale properties that are becoming available.

What is your favorite view when showing the property to clients?

It would have to be next to the fire pit on the lower patio of The Lake Club. This spot always wows guests – views of the lake, the waterfall from The Infinity Pool, and The Lake Club. Guests always describe this location as a true resort.

What excites you about the future?

Everything that MetLife is currently doing from the renovation of clubhouses and golf courses to the addition of new amenities. I am always excited to see which new properties will be released next and what else will be added to this fabulous community.
