Eileen Smith

Love for the Holy City is truly contagious and there is nothing about Charleston that I do not love. My husband John and I first came to the area in 2003 when our son attended the College of Charleston. I remember the moment my feet hit the cobblestone streets - it was the most beautiful place I had ever seen. From the magnificent homes, history, the diverse culture of the city to the sweeping marshes, winding waterways, grand oaks and of course, the superb cuisine. I felt like a displaced southern lady and I knew that one day, I would live here.

I have a 35-year history of owning a boutique real estate company with my husband in our Central Pennsylvania college town. We have personally helped many families find the perfect place to call home. I have made it a priority to put our clients first and have been committed to giving back to our community to make it a better place to live. From the very beginning integrity, service and commitment has been the foundation of our business and it is the promise we bring to our clients in Charleston.


  • Eileen went above and beyond what we expected in a real estate agent. She was a tremendous help from the beginning to end of our real estate purchase process. She selected properties to view which fit our selection criteria perfectly, worked diligently to gather the information we requested to complete the closing, and was an amazing advocate during our pre-purchase walk through. We highly recommend her as a real estate agent! We are very happy with our condo purchase.

  • Eileen was so easy to work with and was very responsive to answer all of our questions. We had our house on the market for an extended time prior to listing with Eileen and although we had serious interest weren’t able to get to a contract. Eileen worked well with interested buyers and buyer’s agent to bring all the details together with a contract we could all agree to. She worked very diligently to follow up on all leads and we had a contract in under two months. Would heartily recommend her- she brings a wealth of real estate knowledge and guided us through each step of the process even during a hurricane!

  • Eileen Smith was our agent who successfully sold our home for us. We would highly recommend her as a skilled and competent realtor. Eileen provided us with professional advice and genuine support during the listing and sale of our property.

  • We recently had the pleasure of working with Eileen Smith to sell our home on Johns Island. Unlike a past experience when our listing agent all but disappeared once we signed with her agency, Eileen was 100% involved with all aspects of the marketing and subsequent sale of our home. Due to her attention to every detail from staging to following up with showings, she was able to present us with more than one offer within a matter of weeks after the house went on the market. Her work ethic is beyond compare and her wonderful personality shines!

  • Eileen is the realtor that you truly need if you want to have a great buying experience! We have been so impressed by her knowledge and ability to tackle all areas of the purchasing process. She made it so much less stressful and easy to purchase our home. Eileen was two steps ahead and proactive. She always called us with options and a plan of action for any issues. We never had to initiate a conversation, she was already on top of it! She is an incredible negotiator. Her personable skills can handle any seller or buyer. Not only would you not regret having her on your team, you'll be forever grateful. We are so thankful to have gotten the opportunity to work with Eileen Smith.
    - L. Belanger

  • Eileen was everything and more that we could have asked for in an agent. We were able to get the exact house we wanted because Eileen was proactive and determined to get us a deal. I could not recommend her services any higher. If you are in the market, do yourself a favor and choose Eileen as your agent!
    - S. Belanger

  • Working with Eileen was such a pleasure! She was so thoughtful and made our out-of-state home buying experience so enjoyable as she guided us through every step of the process. We would highly recommend Eileen for anyone looking to buy a home!
    - S. Cunningham

  • We just happened to stumble on Eileen while looking at a property. Unfortunately, that property ended up being under contract. However, Eileen didn't give up on us. She made some phone calls and found us an even better property and negotiated and advocated on our behalf all the way through closing. We're convinced that if it were not for her thorough knowledge not only of the area and the current market, we may still be looking! If you are unhappy with your buyer agent in this market, RUN don't walk to Eileen! She's great!
    - J. Kapral

  • Eileen is very well informed on the greater area of Charleston, SC. She knew who to call and where to look, which made it a very smooth process for our purchase. I appreciate all her hard work and help on the due diligence. I will call her when it comes time for the next one!
    - A. Wens

  • As an out of state purchaser, finding a real estate professional who was responsive and knowledgeable in the area’s real estate was highly important. For a long time Eileen and I only communicated via text, email and phone. However, from the minute she asked what I was looking for I knew she was truly listening. Not only did she help me find a home that met my family’s needs but she has been invaluable throughout the whole process until closing. She is kind, upbeat and truly a pleasure to get to know. I could not have bought a home, almost sight unseen, had I not had the confidence in her honesty and with her abilities.
    - R. McLaughlin

  • I was a first time home-buyer and couldn't have asked for a better person to help me and my wife through the process than Eileen. She was able to keep us calm during an absolutely crazy market and worked as hard as anyone could in finding us the home we loved. I felt that she really cared for our interests and gave us advice not as an agent, but as a friend. I can't thank her enough for all that she did and would recommend her to anyone!
    - M. Jane Lyles

  • Eileen was the best agent we could have hoped for! She came to us highly recommended from our friends who purchased a house last year, and listening to them was the best decision we could have made. After talking with her on the phone we scheduled our first meet up at a local coffee shop and before that meeting was even over we were on our way to an open house! She was always ready to show us something she thought we would like at any time of the day, flawlessly working around our hectic schedules. The housing market it a mess right now and I know we would never have landed the house we wanted without her help and advice. 100% would recommend, and honestly, we already miss her!
    - E. Connor

  • Eileen did an outstanding job in understanding what we were looking for and identified a property that was not currently on the market. We came to Charleston for a one week visit to find a home. We had a number of properties we wanted to see and Eileen was very knowledgable about the Charleston areas. She urged us to see a property that finally came on the market and we immediately felt it was the right one. Before the week ended, our offer was accepted. Eileen was responsive and an expert in all aspects of the negotiations throughout the buying process.
    - A. Waksman

  • Eileen was excellent at showing us options that met our criteria. She was understanding of what we wanted and not pushy in any way. She worked with us for over a year until we found the perfect home for us. Great communication and knowledge of the real estate process!
    - S. LeMay

  • I wouldn't have wanted to buy my first home without Eileen's help! She provided my wife and I the best experience when purchasing our home. There was never a delay in her response, and she always provided more than 100% when we needed information. Her recommendations on homes perfectly matched our desired goal. In any issue we encountered, Eileen provided her expertise on the situation and was there for us through every step. She helped us find our dream home at the perfect time. She made a great personable impression, with lots of knowledge on the local area. We intend to keep our connection with Eileen, it really felt like we were buying with another member of the family. Highly recommend!
    - K. Dallier

  • I was very lucky to have Eileen's professional experience during the sale of my property. Her effort and insight were invaluable and contributed to a favorable transaction. Eileen's endeavor to keep me informed eliminated any uncertainty and as a result I have recommended Eileen to others and will continue to do so.
    - M. Kenney

  • Eileen was so helpful and I purchased the property remotely, so she helped provide in-depth video and expertise on the local Charleston area. Eileen was always available, very proactive and ready to help however she could! Eileen is wonderful.
    - H. Ray

  • Eileen was very kind, helpful and responsive. She did not push us and was very understanding of our needs and wants. She was a pleasure to work with!

What do you think sets you apart as an agent?

With a background in social work, I know the importance of establishing a caring relationship with my clients that extends beyond the home closing. Listening to my clients’ needs and wants and working diligently to find the right fit for their family is one of my strengths. Keeping my clients informed through every step of the home buying or selling process is key to making every transaction less stressful and more rewarding. My goal is to exceed my clients’ expectations and to keep them as clients for life. I am thrilled to be associated with a quality real estate firm at William Means, who shares the importance of integrity and excellence in service.

Favorite restaurant in Charleston and why?

I love the Fat Hen on Johns Island. The French Lowcountry cuisine is outstanding and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. I feel right at home with the casual farm-themed décor; it’s like eating in a neighbor’s kitchen.
