Adrienne Priest

Adrienne was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and lived in many cities throughout the south since childhood. After graduating from Appalachian State University with a B.S. degree in Recreational Management, she was an instructor for two years at the North Carolina Outward Bound School before transitioning into the beverage sales industry. She spent the 22 years in sales and management working for beverage and wine companies in Charleston, South Carolina and Roanoke, Virginia, before moving back to Charlotte when she decided to start a new career real estate in 2014. She quickly rose to top producer status and and joined HM Properties in August 2020.

Selling real estate is not only Adrienne’s passion, it is her livelihood. She takes her business very seriously and works hard to ensure each client receives superior service. She also understands that trusting someone with what could be stressful time can be daunting which makes it a priority to ensure the adventure of buying and/or selling a home as easy and stress-free as possible. Adrienne practically grew up in the real estate business because her family moved often and has made several moves as an adult so she understands what it takes to get a home ready to sell. 

Adrienne has lived in many areas of Charlotte including South Charlotte, Dilworth, Waxhaw, SouthPark and currently resides in the Ballantyne area with her daughter, Genevieve (13), son, Everett (9) who has special needs, and rescue dog, Jackson. She enjoys spending free time reading, cooking, traveling, gardening, listening to live music, and spending time with her family. She is also is a wine connoisseur after working in that industry for many years, loves dining out and trying new restaurants, and president of her HOA.
