What is your favorite part about Charleston?

I love Charleston because it has a little bit of everything. A bit urban, a bit country, a bit sophistication, a bit traditional, a bit historical, a bit modern, and progressive. A bit of small town living with a big city appeal. It has it all; historic homes, historical significance, culture, art great restaurants, beaches, resorts, beautiful scenery all wrapped up into one fabulous town.

Describe a favorite Saturday afternoon in Charleston.

Being a beach bum, if it’s a pretty day, I will be hanging out on Kiawah Island. I love to ride my bike on the beach and on the bike paths, soaking up some rays out by the beach, or looking for sand dollars, and shells with my kids. Ending the day with a good glass of wine, sitting on my back porch.

What do you think sets you apart as an agent?

Honesty and knowledge. I’m brutally honest with my clients and go to bat for them each and every time. I think of myself as more of a consultant than a sales person. Knowledge is also an important factor – in order to make good decisions, your client needs good solid advice. I take my client’s interests very seriously, and through research, knowledge, and experience, I hopefully, guide them in a direction that benefits them well.


  • My husband and I are huge fans of Mona Kalinsky…She helped us negotiate a tricky commercial acquisition – we purchased the old Maison du Pre Inn in Ansonborough, and have renovated it and rebranded as a boutique hotel Zero George. Mona is incredibly responsive, has full trust and integrity and is both savvy and knowledgeable when negotiating the fine points on contracts. As a lawyer she brings a vital element to any transaction. It also doesn’t hurt she is, without a doubt, one of the best dressed women in Charleston! ;) We are thrilled to be back, and part of the Charleston community and we credit Mona for her invaluable help in the transition. - Lynn Easton Andrews

  • We were very pleased with Mona’s diligence and perseverance throughout the buying process. She was very knowledgeable, and made our transition to the Charleston area an easy one. Most importantly, she did a great job representing us, and listening to our needs. We would wholeheartedly recommend Mona to anyone interested in buying real estate in Charleston. - Beth & Alan Waldenberg

  • Mona is THE MOST aggressive, (in the most positive sense of the word), professional, and delightful realtor we have ever encountered. Should you need quick results and a tireless effort….she’s the best!! - Lois Lynn
