It’s been 10 years now since we first decided to call Charleston our home. We are lucky to have found someone who can be there for us as we grow into owning bigger properties and with higher price points. The luxury market is excellent in this area and we couldn’t thank you enough for your time and dedication to our needs.

Marcus Wright.


Thank you for everything… We love the new home. We love that your company is boutique and catered to our individual needs. Thank you for your support, for your guidance and for letting us focus on picking the perfect place while you handled the details. Looking forward to selling the condo next year!

Samantha Lenevesho.


The fact that you guys support each other in a team atmosphere is just wonderful to John and I, as we’ve seen our share of competition amongst real estate agents out there. Your expertise has been spot on and we had a smooth transaction even with the inspection issues!

Helen Driggers.


Brilliant. Always there when I needed you. Best experience I’ve had in buying investment properties. And now you’re managing them for me. Staying with you guys forever.

Bruce McLain.
