Elle Army knows a thing or two about ambition. From the shining lights of Los Angeles and New York to the cultural curveballs of Rome, she understands what it’s like to move in style. As a Global Real Estate Advisor at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty (PSIR) in North Carolina, she now focuses on helping others build their own dreams.

Despite a successful career as an actress and model, Elle Army settled and became a real estate agent in Charlotte, NC. The city’s impressive schools, proximity to the ocean and mountains, and amiable population made her a Charlottean for life. Her goal? Highlight luxury homes in all their glory and usher in newcomers and those ascending the property ladder with a smile.

Premier Sotheby’s International Realty is the perfect partner for her because they, too, recognize Charlotte’s growing allure in the global property market: “I am so excited to be a part of a best-in-class, world-renowned company that puts clients and relationships first,” Elle says. “Being with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty makes me proud to be a realtor.”

Approaching a lender and preparing to invest in a new market can be daunting, but not with a Charlotte, NC real estate agent by your side. Before you set your sights on a property, Elle Army is keen to broaden your horizons. Follow these tips to secure your dream home ahead of schedule.


1. Find financing in advance

It’s not the most exciting part of buying or selling, but sort your mortgage out early, and you have more time to enjoy the good stuff. Prioritize a real estate agent in Charlotte, NC, with links to approachable and responsive lenders.

“Most people sell themselves short and don’t feel comfortable talking to lenders,” Elle Army empathizes. “Get pre-approved before you start looking because nine out of ten times, you’ll be surprised at what you can afford. Helping people to realize their buying potential and maximize the mortgage they can get is where I shine.”

Elle Army encourages transparency with your realtor to ensure they know your aspirations. She specializes in relocation and resonates with the mindset of those chasing a better life, having developed pivotal problem-solving skills while working to the entertainment industry’s notoriously high standards. But creativity became her most essential takeaway from her time with LA’s movers and shakers.


2. Don’t overlook the details

Technology is a double-edged sword. You may not have even thought about relocating to the Queen City without it, let alone searched for a Charlotte, NC, real estate agent. Buyers and sellers should harness technological opportunities equally but stay aware of the drawbacks.

“Staging and photography is a game-changer and, in my opinion, a must for sellers with how the modern buyer shops,” Elle Army proclaims.

“But buyers shouldn’t just shop online,” she continues. “Set up a meeting with a realtor and go over your goals. Then look at homes together—you will be surprised by what you discover.”

Elle is process-driven and detail-oriented. A specialist in getting homes ready for listing, her worldliness and modeling background with the likes of Calvin Klein augment her aesthetic awareness. Moreover, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty was featured in Mansion Global for selling the most expensive home in Charlotte in 2023, entrenching the company as a top choice for luxury homeowners.


3. Set up for success

Along with problem-solving, innovation, and personability, Elle Army considers punctuality and staying ahead of the game vital to being the best real estate agent in North Carolina. Her client’s purchase or sale—and your dreams—depend on it.

“Be prepared,” she advises. “If we have all our paperwork ready and are on the same page, it makes submitting or receiving offers much more doable. The market is changing rapidly these days, and you have to be ready to swim!”

It’s a far cry from the unpredictability of LA and the laid-back nature of Italy, but Elle Army embraces the responsiveness required in real estate. She’s always accessible to clients and persistent in progressing a deal.

At Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, she has found a company with accomplishments as momentous as the Hollywood sign and the generational influence of the Colosseum. Dreams are best manifested, not ruminated on in ten years. Pursue them—they might be more attainable than you think.
