Lenora was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia. After college she moved to Atlanta and worked for tennis great Lloyd Budge, Don Budge's older brother, in tennis court contracting and construction. Lenora moved to Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1975 and began her career in real estate. In 1986, she moved to Chicago and worked in construction and public relations. Tired of the long, cold winters, Lenora and her attorney husband, Tom, chose Charleston as their new home because of its captivating charm, beauty, climate and lifestyle. Lenora resumed her real estate career in 1994 and works in the historic peninsula area as well as Mt. Pleasant, Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms, Wild Dunes, West of the Ashley, James Island and John's Island. Lenora is among the the top producing agents recognized by the Charleston Area Realtors Association, and says her greatest pleasure is meeting the interesting people drawn to this city and sharing her love for the Charleston area with them. When not working, Lenora makes time for boating, golfing, and discovering the unfolding beauty of the Lowcountry.
