59 Years Renting Charlotte…And Counting!

This week we celebrate T. R. Lawing Realty’s 59th anniversary.  Thomas R. Lawing, Sr and his wife Catherine were 30 years old when they started the company with just one apartment building in 1957.   The Laureldale Apartments, on the edge of Elizabeth, were barely 10 years old but the owner had confidence in T. R. Lawing Realty and that was our first account.   Today, we know the buildings as the Laureldale Condominiums.

Dwight Eisenhower was President; the most popular toys were Slinkys and Hula Hoops; average rents were $90 per month; and drivers could buy 4 gallons of gas for $1.   Where have the years gone?

Today we manage a little more than 2200 residential units for 1800 clients with a full-time staff of 42 employees in 3 offices.   Even with average rents today at $1,000 per month, the local market is as tight as we’ve ever seen.   We processed 247 rental applications this month which was up 27% from just a year ago and double the volume of just 3 years ago.   Charlotte remains a most sought after destination and one of the best places to live in America and we are blessed to call it home.

Happy 59th Anniversary to T. R. Lawing Realty!
