  7. Building a Home? - I am very familiar with the home building process. I was intimately involved with the process of builing my own home at beautiful Lake Murray and I help many families buy new homes each year (in various stages of construction). Please allow me to help you find a building lot and community for your new home and then I can suggest one of several excellent builders to build that dream home. I have been recognized by the Home Builders Association with membership in the REGAL CIRCLE for new home sales leadership.
  8. Experience, Education & Professionalism - I’ve been a licensed S.C. real estate sales agent since December 1997 and I am a RealtorÒ (not all sales agents are Realtors). I’ve helped many folks buy and sell in the Columbia area. I’d be happy to share my Professional Service Brochure Book that includes a detailed list of all of my real estate transactions. In recognition of my sales levels, I am a LIFE member of the Greater Columbia Circle of Excellence.

    CRS in Columbia, SC I believe strongly in continuing education in the fast changing real estate field. I’m committed to exceeding by at least 50% the minimum education requirements of the state of South Carolina. In 1998, I acquired the ABRÒ designation and in 1999, I completed requirements for the GRIÒ designation (Graduate, Realtor Institute). In 2002, I recieved the CRSÒ (Certified Residential Specialist) designation. Fewer than 3% of all Realtors nationwide hold all three of these designations from the National Association of Realtors.
