We have and always will be a fixture in Charleston real estate, but what truly sets us apart is that we are not only a business – we are a family. Your transaction is personal to us. And this is the reason William Means has been successful since 1933 and continues to grow and evolve as the real estate industry changes and expands.

Get to Know

Our Home

William Means Real Estate has two well-established office locations in downtown Charleston and Mount Pleasant, allowing us to serve clients all over the Charleston area.

Office 1

Mount Pleasant

Our headquarters is situated in the award-winning I’On neighborhood in Mount Pleasant. The state-of-the-art office is a stunning space that is inviting to both clients and agents and offers access to private offices and conference rooms. The design was inspired by a welcoming home – an open kitchen, living room seating and bright windows make it an ideal space to stop in for a meeting or a cup of coffee.


Downtown Charleston

William Means Real Estate has always had a presence and appreciation for downtown Charleston. Our satellite office is located on historic Broad Street nestled among the history of our company and our city. Just down the street from the firm’s original office buildings, this space is steps from iconic Rainbow Row, The Battery and some of the area’s finest homes and architecture.
