HOCOA of Lake Norman is locally owned and operated by

Marty Karriker

HOCOA is one of the largest home repair and service referral networks in America. Franchises are located coast to coast. The success of HOCOA is due to the personal touch that homeowners receive when they have a service need.


Marty Karriker

Owner of HOCOA of Lake Norman

Marty Karriker, a true native Charlottean, is the Owner of HOCOA of Lake Norman as well as the President and CEO of Charlotte Insurance. Marty started HOCOA of Lake Norman in 2012. The primary reason to bring the Home Repair Network to our area was a desire to help the thousands of home owners insured through Charlotte Insurance by connecting them with many of the quality contractors and service providers whom he also insures.

Marty has always had compassion for local business owners and felt if he could refer his contractor clients to his homeowner clients for home repairs and maintenance; it would create a win/win situation for everyone. Living and working in Cornelius, he was compelled to introduce the HOCOA concept to the Lake Norman Area where he has lived since 1992. Marty's responsibilities for HOCOA of Lake Norman include recruiting new contractors and service providers while overseeing general business operations.

They love living in Lake Norman area and are active participants in the local community.

Being a member of HOCOA LKN offers a great opportunity to meet and help both residents and business owners in the North Charlotte area. Hardin has spent most of his life in some form of customer service, so directing the Home Repair Network of Lake Norman and Cabarrus County is a natural progression. Along with a general customer service past, he has a long history in the home improvement and maintenance fields having been a wholesaler and retailer in several related fields and also having been the owner of a major national franchise junk removal service for a number of years.
