About Me

Entrepreneur, business developer, sales manager and account executive are but a few of the descriptives for this versatile real estate professional.  Mike Thornburg joins Helen Adams Realty having invested his entire work career in the pursuit of real estate practice excellence.  “Since early in my real estate career I’ve followed a simple principle: Change is inevitable and you are either the cause or the effect of ongoing disruption.”  Mike has served as an evangelist for the continued deployment of new technology in the real estate space.  He has led new tech initiatives as an executive in the real estate franchise business development arena as well as a sales manager at the brokerage level.  “My value proposition to brokers and agents is to serve as a proverbial signpost offering directions to implementation, elevated productivity and increased profitability.”  Helen Adams Realty is proud to have Mike’s inspiration on board as our Broker-In-Charge of the Lake Norman office.


Mike resides in Huntersville along with wife, Donna, a nurse. Two children; Elliott and Merritt, both college students, and Cici, the Shitzu, who has command of their house.

The Vitals
As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
