Lori Lentz

A few years ago, Lori Lentz retired after more than 30 years in public education where she earned the credentials of a National Board Certified teacher, lead teacher, and mentor. She taught in all levels of public school and also spent 13 years teaching English classes at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. Before retiring, she and her husband decided to move their life-long residency from Cabarrus County to welcome Stanly County as their new home! She is currently a full-time broker with Century 21 Russ Hollins Realtors® in Albemarle, and she loves every minute of that adventure! When she is not helping others with their real estate needs, Lori spends time in her hometown of Oakboro with her husband. They both are actively involved in their community; they are members at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, volunteers for Homes for Hope, and participants in Habitat for Humanity. Lori's participation with real estate education has always been an intriguing interest of hers, and she hopes to be of help to others who want to pursue the path of the real estate world!
