Before starting in real estate sales in 2007, Lars Hedenborg worked in various corporate roles, including engineering project management for a utility company, corporate finance analyst for a New York City investment bank, and acquisitions and strategic planning for an aerospace company. Lars is currently broker/ owner of RE/MAX Real Estate Experts in Charlotte, North Carolina. In four short years, Lars achieved Hall of Fame status with RE/MAX by earning in excess of $2 million in gross commissions. Lars leads a team of agents with combined 2011 production of 180 transaction sides and $43 million in sales volume. The team consists of two listing partners, five buyer specialists, two inside sales associates, and three administrative professionals (listing manager, closing coordinator and marketing manager). Lars graduated from the Stevens Institute of Technology in 1995 with a Bachelor’s of Engineering and from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business in 2004 with Master’s of Business Administration. Lars admits that he owes much of his success to standing on the shoulders of giants (his coaches) and humble implementation. While Lars loves the real estate business, his true inspiration is his family; he and his wife, Julie, have two children: Anders (4) and Kendal (almost 2).
