About Nerissa

Prior to working in real estate, I was a Paramedic/Ocean Lifeguard in Southern California where I was pursuing a career as a Physicians Assistant specializing in emergency medicine. During this time my husband and I found out we were expecting our first child.  Even though, both my husband and I were born and raised in Southern California, we jumped at an opportunity to venture across the country to Charlotte, NC. We put down roots in Cornelius, on Lake Norman.  Both of our children (2 girls) were born in Huntersville, NC.  I spent the early years working as a stay at home mom and was able to enjoy raising my two little girls.  As they became older and I found myself with more time, I realized I had a passion for real estate, which lead me to obtain my real estate license in both North and South Carolina.  Despite being different from the field of medicine, I was able to find the same happiness in helping others obtain their real estate goals.


I attended the University of California Irvine where I earned my BA in social ecology while playing Division 1 Women’s Waterpolo as a scholarship athlete.  After college, I attended UCLA where I earned my Paramedic Degree and began my path to a career in medicine.  I was born and raised in the beach community of Dana Point in Southern California. I was lucky enough to spend most of my life swimming, surfing, fishing and being active outside daily.  As much as I enjoyed the California lifestyle, I loved what the South had to offer.  Having friends that had made the move to the Queen City a couple years earlier, we were convinced we wanted to call Charlotte home.  After a brief move back to CA, my family and I returned to the Carolinas and landed in Tega Cay, SC.  We adore the active Lake Community Tega Cay has to offer and love the sense of family and community it provides.


I have an energetic and competitive spirit.  My biggest goal that I want to provide to my clients is top- notch customer service and attention to detail in every aspect of the real estate transaction. In my free time, I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle Tega Cay and the surrounding areas provide. In my free time I engage in fitness activities such as boot camps, Crossfit, and running with my two 100 pound dogs. I am a huge foodie, love to try new restaurants, food trucks and wine tasting.  Our family also enjoys attending Elevation Church in Ballantyne, NC.


As your real estate professional, I can assure you that I will give 100% to provide you with the quality service you deserve.  Home buying/selling is an important time of your life, and I will dedicate myself to the task of finding you your perfect home.

I can not even begin to explain the dedication she provided to me during the process of buying my first home. I had recently moved to the state and due to my profession as a Registered Nurse I was working long and crazy hours. Nerissa jumped right in and anything I needed, had questions about, she was right there within minutes. She walked me right through the process as... Read More

‐ John Day - Cornelius, NC

Nerissa made my home buying experience wonderful. My husband and I have always heard how awful the process is for buying a house and we were waiting for things to go wrong. Nerissa made sure that nothing stood in her way of finding us a home. I was expecting my first baby any minute and she accepted that as a challenge to find us a home before the baby came. We were looking... Read More

Nerissa was super helpful through the whole homebuying process. She was able to get us in to see houses as soon as possible and was always easy to contact. Although the process of purchasing our first home wasn't easy due to the bank, Nerissa made the process easy for us and was with us every step of the way

‐ Bentley Chester, SC

Nerissa O’Donnell was great to work with and very friendly. She was able to answer all of my questions and able to explain them in layman’s terms for me to really understand the process. I felt like Nerissa really had my best interests in mind and was very punctual. I would strongly recommend anyone starting the home buying process to work with Nerissa O’Donnell.

‐ Jake Jerles & Charlotte

We started looking for a home online, nonchalantly, just in our spare time. It wasn't until we drove by a house that we fell in love with curbside that we got serious about finding a Realtor. I put in a request online, and had a very quick response from a Realtor in the area. She referred us directly to a mortgage company, who has listened to our story and she was more... Read More
