Get to Know Lonnie West

You will find a friend as well as a dedicated partner in helping your move into the new neighborhood.  I am very involved in my community.  I serve as Vice President of the Merchants Association in the Town of Siler City.  As a member of Rotary International I am involved, along with like-minded local community leaders,  in the most effective international civic organization in the world.  I am a member of the Advisory Board for the local Free Pharmacy and a member of the Chatham County Forestry Advisory Board.   Our County is the top fund raising county in the US, per capita, for The American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  I am a local fund raising Team Leader.

Lonnie West is a retired US Army Sergeant Major and in his career moved more than 20 times and bought and sold homes in several states where stationed.  I understand what it takes to move a household from one location to another.  I can help families moving out by giveing them a must-follow sequence to close out in one location and prepare to move into another.

I have no preconceived notion of the perfect house and I do not attempt to "sell" a prospective homeowner on a given property.  Instead I learn about the buyer and endeavor to show them properties that meet as many of their stated and unstated criteria as possible. Next I provide service, I get answers to questions, provide information and act as a sounding board as they discuss pros and cons of a particular property.  By providing servcie and allowing a family to "find" the perfect home for their needs, I am then still around at the "closing table".

In addition to providing help to all buyers I specialize in New Homes and am a Certified New Homes Specialist.  I enjoy being outdoors and my second passion is land.  I am known as the "ten acre man".  There are almost always up to 90 listed 10 acre homesites available.  Some improved and ready, others diamonds in the rough (some too rough for some buyers).  I make it my business to know the available 10 acre properties and enjoy helping a family find their mini farm or ranch.


Chatham County is located South and West of Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill otherwise known locally as the Triangle as a reference to The Research Triangle Park.  The most distant point in Chatham County is less than 45 minutes from popular destinations in RTP.  Many County residents have offices or employment in the RTP area.  As more and more people are moving to this growing part of the State of North Carolina, families are seeking more space to build their dream home and raise their families.  That is where I come in!  I help people find building space or improved sites to construct a home in one of several planned communities.  I represent both subdivisions currently building in my sector.  As a Certified New Homes Specialist I am able to interact with local builders and developers and arrange meetings with the best builder for a particular type home.   I also market and sell existing homes in my area.  I do not try to work outside my "farm" area.  Instead I have a network of "The Very Best" agents in neighboring areas to whom I referr clients and accept referrals on a regular basis.
