We moved to the Low Country 2 years ago and we are so very glad that we were able to be assisted by Polly Cillpam to find our perfect home. She took the time to truly find out our needs for a home, and took the time to find that perfect home for us! She is very knowledgeable about the Low Country area and the current real estate market. We highly recommend Polly for all your real estate needs whether you are looking to buy or sell your home in the Low Country.

After selling an investment property for me, Polly assisted me in purchasing multiple rental properties while adhering to 1031 tax guidelines on investment properties. Her knowledge of the 1031 process, her knowledge of local taxes on investment properties and her overall knowledge of the Charleston real estate market made this project as smooth as possible. Polly was professional, direct and focused on meeting my objectives. She was a pleasure to work with.

I love the agents at Smith Spencer. They work incredibly hard to best represent their clients throughout the entire transaction.

Polly called me within an hour of our initial email and has been a huge help ever since. My fiancé and I worked with another realtor in the process of buying our first home and I was completely disenchanted by the experience. So much so that we stopped looking for homes at that time. This time was much different. I feel that Polly went above and beyond for us. Even as far as to show us 11 properties in one night. My fiancé is a chef and our schedules only allowed certain times that we could both be there and she definitely gave us the most bang for our buck! I'm super excited to be in our new home! Thank you Polly!

I wanted to take a moment and say how amazing our experience was purchasing a house with Polly as our Realtor. As first time home buyers, my wife and I did not fully realize what we were getting in to. Not only were we purchasing out of state, but we did not know a lot about the area or what to expect overall. Fortunately we had a friend in the area who recommended Polly as someone who could help us in this arena. Polly was on the ball from day one on ensuring everything was squared away. Whether it was a matter of disseminating information between multiple parties, to following up on any documents that needed to be completed, Polly was on top of it and made our home buying experience a smooth and easy process. I would highly recommend Polly to anyone I know in the market for buying or selling a home in the area.

We purchased a home in Summerville and through out the entire process our Realtor, Polly Cillpam, was great!! Very knowledgeable, friendly and was able to help us with all of our needs. We highly recommend Polly for all of your real estate needs.
-Mark Degarmo
We had a wonderful experience buying a new home with Polly Cillpam. She was extremely professional, responsive & helpful. She made an usually extremely stressful process much less so. I would highly recommend Polly to anyone!
-Ansley Feussner
We had a great experience with Polly! She was and continues to be a great realtor! She was able to fit me in with my tight schedule of being in the military to see a good amount of homes by either my choosing or her suggestions. Her knowledge of the area and the mortgage process were invaluable for me and my family in purchasing our home. I'd definitely go with Polly again given the option! Thank you!
-Paul Apalit
Buying a home is a daunting task at best, but we were lucky enough to find Polly Cillpam among all the agents out there! With her endless patience and we-can-do-this attitude, no matter how many houses we saw, and the many reasons why they were not "the one", we trusted her to find us our perfect home! And she did! And yes, this one "ticked all the boxes"! We feel privileged to have had Polly as our buyers realtor and only have the highest praises for her. Thank you Polly, for all you did for us!
-Neil and Carol Muir
Our experience with Polly Cillpam was incredible. She made herself available and the most unorthodox times. This enabled us to get the house we wanted in a short amount of time. Her attention to detail was second to none. I would highly recommend Polly to anyone seeking to buy a home.
-Darryl Estepp
My husband and I moved to South Carolina from out of state. Not knowing anyone who lived in the Charleston area we had to do our own research to find a realtor who would be helpful in guiding us in our home search. We figured we would interview several realtors and pick the one that we thought we would work best with. Well...the first realtor we contacted was Polly Cillpam and the search stopped there! Polly spent quite a bit of time with us on the phone giving us advice about buying a home in SC and about the different areas and what they had to offer. She did this and we hadn’t even hired her yet! Upon meeting Polly, we knew she would be a great help to us and we weren’t wrong! Moving from out of state can be very stressful but Polly was very helpful through every step of the process, including attending the build quality walk-through meeting on our behalf. We had a very positive and wonderful experience with Polly.
-Christine Reinhart
Polly is awesome. She was so helpful and friendly. She spent all day with us several times just looking at homes. She did a great job learning and understanding the things we were looking for and then helping us find a great home! She went above and beyond.
-Isaac Earl
What a great experience it was dealing with Polly!  We started looking for a potential future retirement home several months ago and a friend recommended that we contact Polly Cillpam. Over the course of several visits to Charleston, Polly willingly (and patiently!) showed us many potential options, and we settled on a place on James Island. Polly made the entire process easy, as she helped guide us through to closing. Her attention and professionalism were exemplary. We love our new place and we appreciate the help that Polly provided to make it happen.
-Rick and Mary Joe Sabol
My families experience with Polly was great. We saw some great homes online and during our visit. Buying a home long distance was not the easiest thing but it went smoothly thanks to Polly!
-Diane Smith
Polly was sensitive to my needs as a first-time home buyer, taking the opportunity to educate me with respect and kindness. I was her first priority in all negotiations. Polly didn't just help me find a home, she helped me find the right home. I wouldn't change a thing about my home buying experience.
-Catherine Maxwell
I worked with Polly and she was very knowledgable about the area, home prices, neighborhoods, drive time, etc. I highly recommend Polly as I know she will take care of you.
-Robert Jarvis
Polly Cillpam was fantastic to work with. I'm an out-of-state investor who needed "inside info" and insight to make rational decisions for my real estate investment. With Polly's help, I was able to do so without flying in several times. Thanks so much Polly!

Polly Cillpam


After receiving a BS in Mass Communications from Arizona State University, Polly spent 11 years as a regional and national sales rep for a Fortune 500 company, traveling across the country all while raising four kids. During her first visit to Charleston in 1999, she was struck by the history, charm, romance, and grace of the city and spent the next three years figuring out a way to call Charleston home. Polly moved to Mt. Pleasant in 2002 and began selling Real Estate in the Lowcountry full-time in 2003.

Before coming to Charleston, Polly moved up and down the west coast as well as across the country. Too many moves to keep up with! She is keenly aware of the many issues involved not only in local moves but major relocations and the emotional stress it can bring with it. Her objective is to minimize the pressure that relocating can create whether it’s moving from out-of-state or selecting your next home just around the corner. To aid her clients Polly holds a designation as an Accredited Buyers Representative.  She is proud to have negotiated approximately 200 successful closings over the years representing both buyers and sellers.

Polly still loves everything the Holy City offers including the architecture, beaches, boating, and restaurants.  Polly’s life has changed over 18 years she has been in Real Estate including the addition of two grandchildren.  Her downtime includes walking the Ravenel Bridge (Google it!), enjoying great friends as well as sharing a glass of wine and a good meal.
