Richard Haake


A native of Charlotte, Richard began his real estate career by renovating historic Dilworth homes in the late 1970s. Now having over 40 years of residential and commercial experience, he has an extensive background in construction, sales and marketing, as well as land acquisition. Projects have ranged from restoring the landmarked “Oak Lawn” Davidson family home, in consultation with Bob Vila of This Old House, to building a state-of-the-art training facility with mockup structures used by insurance professionals. A savvy executive, he himself has been recruited by the insurance industry to appraise damage caused by natural disasters and catastrophic events such as Hurricane Sandy in New York City. This know-how has earned him numerous regional and national awards in home building.

Dedicated to community, Richard has served as a president of Optimist International’s Providence chapter, along with the Park Crossing Homeowners Association, and as a board member of Little Church on the Lane. Together with his wife Carolyn they lead a monthly couples enrichment group. In recognition of his contributions, Rotary International has honored him with their highest award as a Paul Harris Fellow.
