About Us

At Homes Near Charleston, there are few things we love more than helping clients save money by purchasing a home, or earning the best price for a house they are selling. Your home is far more than a piece of property or a smart financial decision. That's why we're dedicated to helping you find the exact right place for you - the home that truly fits your budget, your family and your lifestyle.

Homes Near Charleston was founded with a committment to providing clients with the highest quality of personalized, professional care. That means we're available and attentive to your every need and question. We know the ins and outs of the real estate industry - and of the Charleston area in particular - so you don't have to. We'll negotiate on your behalf, with your best interests in mind. And we'll guide you through every step of the real estate process with honesty, knowledge and integrity.
