What is your favorite part about Charleston?
My favorite part about Charleston is that you can have so many favorite parts. You can love the history and homes, you can love the beaches, you can love great food, you can love great people.
What is one thing you think most people don’t realize when they buy real estate?
I don’t think people realize the difference in having a good real estate agent. While a lot of information can be found on the internet, having a good agent makes a huge difference. A good agent finds you the right house, at the right price, and makes the transaction as smooth as possible. For the biggest transactions of your life wouldn’t you want the best?
How do you feel William Means sets itself apart as a real estate company?
I feel William Means has many ways it sets itself apart, but these ways come together in a simple term of thoroughness. If you really want to feel good about buying or selling home, knowing that everything was reviewed and done correctly. Having that done is one of the most reassuring feelings. William Means does it in many ways, but at the end of the day they are thorough about every detail.
