As a first time home buyer from out of town, I was looking for an experienced agent who was willing to walk me through the process as well as someone familiar with the Charleston area. David is an excellent agent and proved to be a huge resource for me throughout the entire process. Even after the purchase I knew I could count on David to answer my questions about everything from quality contractors to property taxes.

David Kent is not just an exceptional exclusive buyers’ realtor, he is an exceptional human being. He leads by example, works tirelessly, day and night, weekday or weekend to help you achieve your goals. He is respectful, well mannered, humble, kind, jovial and most importantly, he is honest.
I wanted to take a moment to share with everyone my praise of David Kent. My wife and I are both locally employed in the medical field. I lead with this as we are incredibly hard working and driven individuals with busy schedules. We have high expectations of ourselves, and thus ask the same of the individuals we choose to work with. It was non-negotiable that whomever we ultimately used as a realtor had to be able to accommodate our busy schedules, be that either meeting on weekends, or late in the evening. We further needed someone who would give us efficient and honest answers, who had extensive experience with the local real estate market, who received accolades that supported this, and who treated us with the utmost respect and humility deserved when making arguably the largest purchase of your life. …Enter David Kent. As mentioned above, my career engrains a habit to always perform extensive research before making a decision. As such, I did the same before selecting a realtor to help me purchase our first home. I was in the market for an exclusive buyer’s agent to minimize all conflicts of interest, thus reinforcing the feeling that I truly had someone in my corner of the ring. There were ample testimonials online of exceptional interactions with David Kent. After vetting a few others, we ultimately reached out to David for a meeting. From the moment we started a professional relationship with David, he was friendly, respectful, knowledgeable, modest, and trustworthy. He worked with us on our schedule, and was able to accommodate our needs, be that late night phone calls, assistance in finding the best rated mortgage lenders, viewing homes, etc. He provided us his cell phone number, and absolutely made himself available 24/7 for the entirety of our interaction. Another thing worthy of mentioning was that we chose to buy our house during the housing boom of 2021. Most houses were on the market for less than 24 hours, and bidding wars became an all but guaranteed thing. Despite this being a novel situation, David helped us navigate this process with ease. There were some downright awkward interactions with others given the housing market and David always took charge to get us on to properties, negotiate our most competitive offer, and play our hand close to our chest. Unfortunately, and to no fault of David what-so-ever, we had a nightmare scenario occur in regards to our interactions with the seller we ultimately came under contract with. David rose to the occasion. I cannot even begin to count the times I would call him on the phone with a concern, and he would quickly respond with “I’ll handle it, don’t you worry about a thing.” And then he would do just that. Every time, without fail, he would come through for us. Be it from his personal knowledge of the closing process, or his plethora of contacts, he would always, and I mean always, help us overcome any obstacle that arose. All the while he did this with grace, composure, and a level head. I write you now from the comfort of my first home. It met every criterion we had, closed in a timely fashion, and I look forward to building a life here. None of this would have been possible without David. If you take away any value from what I have written above, I hope it is this: David Kent is not just an exceptional exclusive buyers’ realtor, he is an exceptional human being. He leads by example, works tirelessly, day and night, weekday or weekend to help you achieve your goals. He is respectful, well mannered, humble, kind, jovial and most importantly, he is honest. I can assure you beyond a shadow of a doubt that if your goals and expectations are realistic, he will help you find the property for you. No question about it. He receives the highest recommendation I could give. I have already recommended him to my closest friends and family and I will certainly use him in the future. Thank you for your time.
