Why Charlotte?

Not only are we proudly serving the Lake Norman & Charlotte areas, but this is our home, and we love it for many reasons:
  • Charlotte is a growing city
  • Booming economy
  • Great climate
  • Reasonable cost of living
  • Beautiful views
  • Close to the mountains and the beach
  • Amazing restaurants and night life
  • Growing arts scene
  • Multiple sports franchises.
  • And we’re not Atlanta. 🙂 (Sorry Atlanta…couldn’t resist)

Like residents of most major cities, there is a sense of pride in Charlotte. We sometimes quip amongst ourselves that it seems there are two types of people in the US right now…those who live here and those who want to move here!

Why Lake Norman?

Lake Norman is a large lake (520 miles of shoreline) that is situated just north of Charlotte. The “Lake Norman area” consists of several municipalities that form a community. Masters Transportation primarily serves the towns along the eastern part of the lake including Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson and Mooresville.

Each town has it’s own unique flavor; but they all allow you to enjoy a great suburban lifestyle, while still experiencing “the city life” that is only a few short minutes away.

The Lake Norman area is very well known for fishing, boating, water sports, and laid-back lakeside dining. We cater to multiple events around the lake, and have hosted the BassMaster Classic several times. Birkdale Shopping Center and Davidson College are also nearby. The auto racing industry practically lives in Lake Norman, as do many famous athletes including Michael Jordon. Donald Trump recently invested in Lake Norman, buying a golf course that has been converted to his Trump National brand.

For lake-style living within close proximity to a major city, the Lake Norman area can’t be beat. We are happy to call it home. For more check out the Visit Lake Norman website. We hope you enjoy your visit!
