Our situation was particularly tricky because we were buying a house in Charleston but live in Toronto, Canada. Couldn't be happier! Erin and her team provided expert advice and meticulous follow-through service on all aspects of the transaction. They had answers to all our questions, and anticipated all the logistical and administrative details we would have to deal with. We relied on their expertise, not only as regards the immediate property but also other necessary services and resources in the Charleston area. Absolutely first-class experience all the way.

We had a fantastic experience using Erin as a realtor for both buying and selling our home! She always put our needs first and went out of her way to do whatever she could to make the process easier for us. We've recommended her to several close friends already and will continue to do so!

Working with Smith Spencer Real Estate has been an absolute pleasure. Erin is at the highest level of her craft. She brought candor, insight, knowledge and most importantly humor to our efforts together. We look forward to highly recommending Smith Spencer Real Estate now and into the future.
-Matthew Ferguson
Erin is a wonderful real estate agent and we cannot recommend her highly enough! My husband and I were first time home buyers with all of the anxieties and concerns that come along with that--especially in this market. She was extremely patient with us. Erin was also always extremely honest with us and we never felt pressured to make an offer on a home or go through with a purchase just so she could close the deal. We will definitely use Erin again the future and recommend her to anyone looking in the area!

Just closed my first flip with Erin Spencer. It was exactly as it was supposed to be. Which unfortunately in real estate is not always the case. To the point where the house was sold before we even had a chance to list it, during the holidays, at the highest price per square foot in the area I’ve worked with hundreds of real estate agents in my 15 years of flipping houses and I can honestly say that Erin is by far cream of the crop. To start with she was so honest (not a trait that is synonymous with real estate agents always). Her knowledge of the market is something you can’t emulate. As an out of towner she went above and beyond to help facilitate our rehab project to the point we were even sending materials to her home to deliver to the job site. The fact the she would answer emails and phone calls at all hours was extremely appreciated….Having really knocked out of the park with the first house which she represented us both in purchase and sale that we’ve since bought two more with her help. I can honestly that I wouldn’t have been so confident to do so if I didn’t have the help and knowledge of someone of Erin’s experience and expertise. I would highly recommend you use Erin for your future purchases and sales whether for investments or end users. (just please don’t take her away from working with me).
-Jonathan Zadok
This was our first completed project with Erin and her team at Smith Spencer. Needless to say, we were beyond pleased with the results. Erin's professionalism and expertise in the market is unparalleled. We look forward to many more successful projects with Erin and Smith Spencer. For those looking to celebrate a successful closing, I would also highly recommend drinks at Madra Rua in Park Circle...
-Josh Platt
We bought a house on Johns Island with Erin. She is straight forward, real and wanting to satisfy her customers at all costs. She makes you feel like you are the most important customer she has (even though we didn't buy a super expensive home). She helped us navigate Lennar and our demands without batting an eye. She always showed up for us. Always. Every inspection to close. She seemingly would drop everything as well to FaceTime us when we lived in another state to look at a house when the market was insane and houses went that very day. She is a rockstar. I absolutely adored working with her. She is fun, charismatic, extremely knowledgable about the market and builders. I can now call her a friend....that's how how wonderful Erin is to work with!
-Megan Dice Seifker
I had the pleasure of working with Erin Spencer to sell my current home and assist with the purchase of my new build. She was professional, responsive, and her experience helped me in several areas I would not have thought of myself during the whole process. I would not hesitate to recommend their group or use them in the future!

Our mission is to advocate for these children by spreading awareness that juvenile arthritis is real, providing support for their families and peer groups, and by organizing and executing a worry-free camp where they can have the time of their lives.”
