Bradley Thompson

Bradley Thompson has been a proud Charleston resident for more than 20 years. In 2004, he graduated from Clemson University with a bachelor's degree in business management. From there, he moved to the Lowcountry where he began his career in real estate. After five years as an agent, he founded the brokerage Colony & Craft Real Estate Co. where he represented the sale of more than 200 Charleston homes.

Bradley's knowledge and love of Charleston and its surrounding areas are evident from the moment you meet. He is well versed in historic homes having consulted on countless renovation projects where he built strong relationships with the area's leading contractors and craftsmen. He has also endeared himself into the area's most charming neighborhoods through numerous outreach projects and sponsorships including the renovation and tree planting at the Wagener Terrace dog park.

Over the last 15 years of hard work and dedication to real estate, he has earned a reputation rooted in his core principles of honesty, reliability and loyalty. Since the very start, Bradley's mission has been to provide the highest quality experience when buying or selling your Charleston home.

When he's not selling some of Charleston's most charming homes, Bradley enjoys gardening, swimming laps at MUSC and spending time with his wife, Katherine, and their little girl, Hattie Bea.


  • Bradley has helped me both buy and sell a home and he is SO GOOD! On the buying side... He helped me negotiate and ultimately own a house in a highly desirable area on a highly desirable lot with multiple offers! He assured me from the beginning that we would put together an offer that would be different and attractive to the sellers and he was right: I got the house! Bradley went above and beyond to help pull together the information I needed to make an offer: from meeting with contractors and inspectors to taking the initiative to request pricing from contractors for repair work so that we could re-negotiate the sales price. On the selling side: Bradley hires an amazing photographer that produces professional quality photos that you will want to keep after they help sell your home! Due to listing with Colony and Craft, my house was under contract in less than one week for over asking price. In addition to helping me buy and sell a home expertly and quickly, Bradley provides top-notch client support. He is laid back, on top of every detail, and always available. I highly recommend him!

  • Bradley was absolutely fantastic to work with on our recent home buy. With extensive knowledge of the many unique neighborhoods in Charleston, Bradley helped us find a great house in a wonderful part of town, and in a very competitive market. Responsive, reliable & effective, I would highly recommend him for your real estate needs.

  • If you are looking for a professional real estate agent, I highly recommend Bradley Thompson! Bradley's enthusiasm, communication style, and expert advice is how he separates himself from the competition. Also, Bradley's expert home photography and listing details really showcase a "for sale" property. Most importantly, Bradley is constantly trying new ideas to secure a contract and ultimately close at the highest price for the seller. I have trusted Bradley with several of my new construction homes and will no doubt utilize Bradley to sell more homes in the future.

  • Bradley recently helped my wife and I purchase our first home. The level of attention he paid to us throughout the home-buying process was extraordinary. He spent countless weekends and late-night phone calls to make sure we ended up with the best house for our budget, which is exactly what we were able to buy. Bradley's relationships with other realtors, contractors and lending institutions is unmatched, but what sets Bradley apart is his work ethic and diligence. I do not believe there is another real estate agent in the Charleston area who is better at matching up a potential buyer with the right property. I have spoken with many friends as to their level of satisfaction with their agents, and I feel confident that my wife and I were happier with our experience with Bradley than any of our friends and acquaintances.

  • Although I had no idea what to expect when working with a realtor to buy our home, I would imagine that our experience with Bradley is about as good as it gets. Right from the start, I was blown away with how thorough a job he did getting us all the information we needed to start the search process, how much knowledge about the properties he had (or how quickly he found answers to off-the-wall questions), the attention he gave to our search in general, and above all, how patient he was with everything we need from start to finish. I was extremely comfortable that, at all times, he was serving as the best advocate possible for our goals. I was so appreciative of the time he took to gather information and reassure me along every step of the process. You can't go wrong working with Bradley....he made our dreams come true!

  • To anyone looking for a great home buying/selling experience, I have known Bradley Thompson for over ten years now, and recently had the pleasure of hiring Bradley as my agent for the purchase of my first home. Bradley went above and beyond what I could have expected and helped me find a wonderful new house, in a neighborhood and area of Charleston that I love, and helped me close for a great price. Bradley was thorough in the execution of his duties, and ensured that I was taken care of from start to finish. If you want to hire an agent who genuinely wants you to be happy, will not pressure you just to make a sale, and who will look out for your best interests, even at the expense of his own, then I highly recommend that you get in touch with Bradley Thompson.

  • Bradley exceeded every expectation. He was very thorough in researching the asking price. He patiently explained each step as he arranged for professional photography, listed the house, set up online appointments and marketed my house effectively. As a result, the house had eight immediate responses and four offers the first full day. The house went under contract for $10k over listing price with an option to rent back for 30 days while waiting for the new home. He has great contacts for getting inspections and necessary work done. He negotiated a reduction in price for where I am moving and again, had mortgage lender contacts, attorneys, etc that have made this an organized, successful sale and a smooth purchase. This isn't my first or 2nd sale but, thanks to Brad, it has been the easiest. He jokingly told me he was the best and then he proved it!

What do you think sets you apart as an agent?

I can say with full confidence and pride, yet no ego, that my reputation is what sets me apart. I've spent the last 20 years successfully advocating for my clients' best interests and always do the right thing. Ultimately, my goal is to give my clients every competitive edge I possibly can and make them happy at the end of the day. It's taken a long time and a lot of hard work but my reputation in the Charleston real estate market has served as a huge bedrock for my success.

What are your favorite features of homes and why?

I have always been a big believer and champion of the back den. I believe it is one of those special rooms that sets a proper home apart from others. The back den is often where a family comes together and relaxes in mutual comfort and ease. It's an informal shared space for the family to enjoy, free of decorum or propriety. The back den is often overlooked, but I believe it's easily one of the most important rooms in a home.

Describe a favorite Saturday afternoon in Charleston.

My wife Katherine and I chase our 2-year-old daughter Hattie Bea around Sunrise Park and search for sharks' teeth. On our way home, we enjoy Huriyali smoothies and feed the ducks in Hampton Park. Upon our return home, I get to working in the yard all while I keep an eye on Katherine and Hattie Bea sleeping in our backyard hammock.
