Relocation Services

The Real Buyer’s Agent helps you envision your life in your new home and helps you make it a reality. We understand how daunting the idea of buying a new home can be especially when it is in an area you may not be familiar with. We see it as our job not only to help you find the perfect home to meet your needs but also to educate you about everything you need to know to make the best decisions for you and your family.

Our Agents are familiar on the many areas and neighborhoods that make up greater Charleston and are experienced working with people relocating for a variety of reasons. Whether you’re military or taking a new job here and need to make a move fast or you’re thinking about a move for retirement and are in no rush we’ve got you covered!

Charleston Are Schools

Even if you don’t have school age children, understanding school performance can affect your resale. If you do have school age children or are planning to, getting information on the schools can play a part on where you consider buying.
