So happy I was referred to Giovanna to help find my dream home in Charleston. After shuffling through a few other real estate agents, Giovanna and the Smith Spencer team made the home buying process effortless and comfortable. I look forward to referring everyone I know to Giovanna to help streamline the home buying process. Thanks again for everything! Looking forward to the next one.
Stacy Smith recently helped us with the purchase of our home for our move to the Charleston area. She was all hands on deck from our first conversation together, and has a work ethic and passion for real estate that is unparalleled. She was willing to FaceTime us for spur of the moment viewings since we were out of state, write contracts at the drop of a hat, and always available via text or call. Cannot recommend Smith Spencer enough! Would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in this wild market.
Can't sing Stacy's praises enough! I recommend her to everybody I know that's looking for a realtor. She helped us in finding house as we were moving back to Charleston from Pittsburgh. She was very knowledgeable and supportive and helped us to navigate this process the best we could in the middle of the pandemic earlier this year. It's clear that she works extremely hard and does whatever she can to make the process efficient for her clients. We appreciate it that she was honest and straightforward with us. Stacy has many clients and has a very busy schedule however she always made us feel like we were her only clients which I still don't know how she did that with how busy she was! If you want a hard-working, determined, and quick as a whip relator look no further. Stacy is a boss.
I'm so grateful I chose Stacy Smith with Smith & Spencer for a quick buy on a new home purchase. From showing to closing, she went above and beyond as a realtor to expedite the entire process. Stacy literally walked me through each phase and was personally present at each step to guide me from beginning to end so I was able to move into my new home within three weeks of the first viewing. I highly recommend if you're seeking an exceptionally knowledgeable professional who provides attentive, efficient and courteous first class service.
Aya was so helpful and kind throughout the entire process of helping us find a house! Her negotiating is next level. We are super thankful for her navigating us through this process.
-Kenny Vaccaro & Kahli Ontiveros | Tennessee Titans
Aya is an AMAZING realtor!! I had a few hiccups along the way (my fault not hers) and she was there every step of the way to guide me through every bit of it! I will recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase a new home or to help you sell your home. Aya is very personable, knowledgeable, and listens to you in order to help you find what you're looking for. I trusted her the entire way of my home buying experience. This was my first home purchase and I can TRULY give all of the credit to Aya!! She does not try to sell the house to you, she shows you what you've asked for, listens to your pros and cons and brings even more to the table. She truly treated me as if I were her only client. My review does not touch the gratitude and thankfulness I have for her. My daughter and I have a beautiful home and have Aya to thank for that.
Aya was extremely helpful, very responsive and stayed on top of every detail.
-Jack Crawford | Tennessee Titans
Aya was introduced us through an inquiry on Zillow. She showed us a home we were interested in and we put down a contract to purchase. Aya was meticulous with details and kept us informed throughout the offer, contract negotiation, inspection and close. Aya's calm professional demeanor was welcome and appreciated. If you are seeking to work with an agent that is focused on making the home-buying experience a joy, Aya is your agent!
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!
Sarah Ellen helped us relocate from California to Johns Island. We originally met her on our first visit to the area when we were looking at open houses on our own. Sarah Ellen's knowledge, personality, and responsiveness led us to call her before our next trip out, and we were able to set up a day of private showings. Throughout that year, she contacted us regularly and made the effort to get to know us as people, not just clients. This led to her being able to suggest areas and types of homes that would fit our lifestyle. We definitely would recommend Sarah Ellen to be your realtor, no matter if you're relocating or live in the Charleston area. She knows her business!
After listening to Smith Spencer’s podcast “Between Two Brokers”, I came across Giovanna over Instagram while my fiancé and I were browsing the market. We had our hearts set on the Charleston area for some time and with it being our first time buying a home, we both felt like deer in headlights. However! As soon as Giovanna and I started talking, any sign of anxiety melted away! She knows exactly what she’s doing and is SO good at it. She was able to walk us through step by step and didn’t let go of our hands the whole way through! She’s incredibly kind, patient and so knowledgeable. We were viewing homes virtually since we lived out of state and even as stressful that can be for realtors as well I’m sure, Giovanna handled everything with grace and gumption. Even in this crazy market, she made everything feel like a breeze. We could not be happier with the way things have turned out. So glad we were able to connect with her, she’s stuck with us for life!
This was my second property purchased with Stacy. She is by far the best person to work with in Charleston (well, or anywhere in my experience). She's honest, fair, and an insane negotiator. I recommend Stacy to all of my friends... she and Erin know how to run a well oiled machine.
Giovanna was awesome and made it easy for my first home purchase! I was able to get the right deal for me, and plan to do a lot more of business with her in the future!
Our experience with Stacy was fantastic. She is extremely thoughtful and very responsive. Stacy took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for in order to help us find the right fit. We couldn't have been happier!
We had a wonderful experience with our realtor, Sarah Ellen Lacke, who helped us in the sale of a condo on James Island. We live out of state and Sarah Ellen was such a great advocate for us as the sellers and made the whole process go so smoothly. We would highly recommend Smith Spencer and Sarah Ellen Lacke to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Charleston area!
We have the good fortune of knowing many realtors. When we decided to sell our house, I knew exactly who to choose. Stacy Smith is straightforward, hardworking, and very responsive. She is results oriented. While setting our goals and achieving them with Stacy, I began referring to her as “The Terminator”! I like her communication style, and her level of attention to the details. Stacy has an incredible wealth of knowledge, and she used that knowledge to get us the best contract possible; well above asking price. I would recommend Stacy to anyone looking for fantastic results!
I reached out to Stacy with our specific needs and wants, as well as our limited timeline. She was able to get us into see our preferred property right away, and more importantly helped us get the house in a very competitive and limited inventory market. Her creative approach and extensive network in second to none. Stacy got it DONE! She is a true professional in a sea of amateurs, taking care of every detail, always with style and grace. Her network is vast and her references can be trusted. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her. Do yourself a favor and hire Stacy for any of your real estate needs!
Stacy and team are what you want in an agency: detail oriented, great advisement, well-versed and knowledgeable, excellent communicators. The whole process was seamless and smooth and I highly recommend.
You will not find a more experienced, knowledgeable, or hardworking team of real estate pros in Charleston! Stacy just recently sold our home for us (in 4 days) and it could not have gone any smoother. Stacy brings a no nonsense and confident attitude that is a result of years of extensive experience and success in real estate, that my husband and I appreciated. We were able to make informed decisions with Stacy's guidance while never feeling pressured. Communication from Stacy's office could not have been better, and Cynthia Wheeler, who managed the admin tasks and correspondence, was a true professional all the way through!
Giovanna made the home buying process as a first-time home buyer such a breeze. She helped me find my dream home virtually since I was out of state. She then held my hand through each step of the process, which I needed!! She is so responsive even if she is busy, she still manages to respond and answer all of my crazy questions. I could not have worked with a better realtor, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Charleston. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars she is amazing!
Stacy and her team were far beyond amazing. From the first phone call we had with her until closing day. It was my first experience as a homebuyer, and I had heard stories from friends about how difficult the process can be. Stacy found us our dream home on day one and got us a better deal than we thought would be possible. Her team, after the offer was accepted, were effortlessly efficient. They truly were the dream team. I cannot recommend her enough if you are buying a home in the Charleston area. She is truly the best of the best.
Stacy was our real estate agent. She was awesome to work with and given that we were only in town for a week to find a house, we successfully achieved that mission. Couldn't be more happy with how responsive and professional she is. She really helped us from the start to the finish line in finding just the perfect home.
Stacy and team were super pro's in this difficult market as a buyer. Worked to understand our needs moving from out of state and zero'd us in on the right areas and eventually landed our dream home in dramatic style. We definitely hit the jackpot with Stacy!
We are moving in from out of town and felt that we had to get it done in one week. With the limited number of homes available in Mt. Pleasant, we were very nervous of not finding the right one. Stacy Smith lined up 4 homes for us to see on our first day in town and by 3pm we had found our dream house! She spent quite a bit of time with us prior to our trip, learning our style and talking about neighborhoods. Stacy also got us connected with an excellent lender in the area. They worked through everything seamlessly together. When it was time to put in an offer, Stacy knew what was needed to make us stand out. Highly recommend working with Stacy and her office!
Stacy is a fantastic realtor! She helped us set realistic expectations, prepare so we could give a competitive offer, and navigate a highly competitive market with low inventory. Not only did she help us find our dream home, she used her connections to get an inspection scheduled before we left town (we’re relocating). Stacy is candid, professional, hardworking, and a pleasure to work with. So thankful she was recommended to us!
Cynthia was our agent for our move from Oregon to South Carolina. The weekend that we came down to look at houses, she already had an idea of the neighborhood we would be interested in and she was exactly right! We put an offer on our Park Circle home that same weekend. While we were back in Oregon, Cynthia handled everything on our behalf in Charleston. She was very communicative, efficient and we always felt like everything was under control. Once we made it to Charleston, she met us at our new house with welcome gifts and our key. We couldn't have been happier with her.
-Spike and Jennifer Schillo
Sarah Ellen helped us sell our home on James Island and purchase a home on Johns Island. We were looking for a unicorn and she found it. Despite having incredibly low inventory in our area, she diligently went to work and found us a perfect home. She really listened to what we wanted, stuck with our budget and communicated incredibly well throughout the whole process. She made the home selling/buying process (which I was dreading) truly easy and seamless. She is amazing and I would highly recommend her.
Gina was amazing to work with! We had been looking for a home for months with no luck and she exceeded our expectations - was incredibly accessible, knowledgable, and went above and beyond to help us throughout the entire process. Can't recommend her enough!
Stacy helped us buy our first home in a crazy market! She was Johnny on the Spot answering all our emails and texts right away and helped us navigate a low appraisal issue. We are so happy about our Daniel Island condo purchase!
-Greg and Ellen Elias
Erin was referred to us through a mutual friend and helped us purchase a vacation property on Daniel Island. We had been to the Charleston area several years ago and really enjoyed the variety of activities and culture within a small radius. We came back this year more serious about our property hunt. Erin did a great job of listening to our feedback while touring several options around the Mt. Pleasant and DI areas. She quickly helped us narrow the list, picked up on the key attributes that mattered and steered us to the downtown DI area. We found a perfect 3BD condo within walking distance to all of the downtown activities, shops and restaurants, all within 20 minutes from the beaches, DT Charleston and the Airport. Our family will enjoy the area for generations to come! Erin and her team pointed us in the right direction for all of the resources needed to execute the purchase and followed up every step of the way. It was very comforting to know that we were just one call away from support for all of the steps required to make this happen. Erin, Smith Spencer RE and their team did a great job and come highly recommended!
-John and Kim Thomas
Sarah was absolutely amazing she was professional and responsive. She made this first time purchase so much easier, she was there every step of the way and went over and beyond. We will be using her again in the future
We worked with Sarah and she was amazing! She got us the house we really wanted even with two other offers on the table. Very professional, helpful and so nice. She made the buying process a breeze!
I highly recommend Sarah Marion as a buyer or seller agent. She worked with us to sell our beach villa in Wild Dunes and was amazing. She was creative, tenacious, professional and took the time to attend every showing we had! That is something I'd never experienced before with any other agent. Sarah knows her profession well and works well with her peers to ensure a positive experience for all!
Cammy is the hardest working realtor I’ve ever known —proactively sourcing not-yet-listed homes through her broad network of fellow realtors and friends, getting us scheduled for showings right away, finding home inspection options, locating trades people for repairs and enhancements, pointing us towards local mortgage lenders and closing attorneys, and keeping all the moving parts on track for a timely closing. She’s friendly, fun, upbeat, and extremely conscientious. Cammy paid close attention to the details involved in purchasing our home, which was invaluable to us. At closing, she presented us with a nice binder to organize all of the information and records for our home, making it easy to quickly put our hands on key information in the future when needed. You won’t find anyone nicer to work with than Cammy Dennis.
I had a great experience working with Cammy. My husband and I were in the market for a rental investment property on Kiawah Island. Not only was she knowledgeable about Kiawah rentals, (as she owns a rental property there as well), but she was able to fill me in on the different property management companies and contractors to approach after closing, which saved us a lot of time. We live out of state, so Cammy was there for inspections and closing, and she kept us informed along the way. We were pleased with her organization and upbeat attitude. We have already recommended Cammy to friends and look forward to working with her again in the future!
Cammy was instrumental in helping me find my first home last summer. I was nervous about staying within my budget and she was so helpful in alleviating my concerns along the way. The contract process was seamless and efficient. And she stayed on top of me to claim my 4% residency status after closing. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my family and friends. What a great agent!!
Cammy went above and beyond expectations to help us purchase 3 houses in the Lowcountry. All transactions were complicated and made more complicated by the seller's agent being uncooperative and unresponsive. In spite of that Cammy kept her cool and was the consummate professional. She is a pleasure to work with and honest to a fault. She makes all involved feel like a winner. We will never work with another agent.
-Richard and Anne D.
We loved working with Erin on our latest move! She was an absolute pleasure to deal with and made the whole move so smooth and easy. We've been to five closings and It was easily the best and most seamless closing we've had. We appreciate her so much!
Sarah Ellen has been patiently helping us look for a new home all around the Charleston area for the past two years. When we were unable to find the home we were looking for, we decided to look for land to build on instead. Sarah Ellen helped us find a waterfront property in John's Island, which is quite a feat these days! We had to move quickly and she was very helpful and responsive. Buying land was a new experience for us and she helped us every step of the way. We would definitely recommend using Sarah Ellen when looking for a new home or property in the Charleston area!
Stacy helped us buy our country home and we have bought numerous homes over the years but this was by far the best experience we have ever had purchasing a home. We will never go back!!!! We love her and will recommend to everyone!
Working with Erin was truly a wonderful experience from start to finish! She was incredibly responsive and made us feel so valued. Buying and selling at the same time is an incredibly stressful undertaking, so having someone like Erin on our team made the process so much more enjoyable!
We’ve done three transactions with Smith Spencer in the last 2 years, Erin has been awesome, huge integrity, incredible local knowledge and awesome team back in the office headed up by Cynthia who helped manage and keep every sale on track. They went above and beyond, helped out with staging, plants, renovation decisions, moving day and even an air bed when one was needed for a few days. If you’re buying or selling in the Charleston area you simply won’t find a better realtor or real estate team. Love their podcast too, awesome ladies!
Buying a home may seem like an overwhelming or complex process. It used to for me at least.
I was searching around Charleston and its surrounding areas for a while trying to find the right house on many different websites and the homes didn’t feel quite right or didn’t feel attainable. Once I connected with Gina and had a few conversations about some home styles I liked. She hit the ground running and setup a number of showings around the Charleston area in no time at all. For each showing she had prepared a detailed breakdown down of the home, the condition of the home, the neighborhood, and ultimately the asking price and all the factors that would contribute to get you to your final number. The number that everyone gets nervous about. She did it in a way that made it so easy to understand and immediately less overwhelming. All it took was 5 showings and she had found the perfect home. From the moment the offer was accepted to the day of closing, it was a smooth and very well communicated process.
I was truly blown away at her professionalism and knowledge. Gina, went above and beyond for us to find the perfect home and I would highly recommend her.
I worked with Giovanna and she was fantastic. She was there to walk me through each step of the process and give recommendations when I needed them. This was my first time purchasing a home and I hope if I ever need to do it again in the future it goes this smoothly. I was referred to Smith Spencer by a friend and would definitely recommend them.
Erin helped us sell and purchase our new home in Mount Pleasant and we had a wonderful experience from start to finish on both fronts. This was our first time selling, and Erin made it as smooth and stress-free as possible for us! She went above and beyond and really took the time to walk us through both processes. Erin was prompt in responding to our MANY questions and kept us incredibly well informed. We have three young children and are on the conservative side when it comes to precautions with COVID and Erin did an amazing job understanding our concerns and communicating this with other agents. She helped us implement different ways to minimize the risk of having people enter our home during this time, and for that we are incredibly grateful. Erin is knowledgeable about the market, and we always felt that she truly had our best interests in mind. We would highly recommend Erin for your real estate needs.
Incredibly grateful to have found my realtor, Cynthia, and Smith Spencer Real Estate to help me with my first home purchase. In an extreme seller’s marker with record low housing inventory, Cynthia went above and beyond to find an off-market property for me. At every step of the way, she was there answering my questions, helping me research, and acting in my best interest. She was a teammate from initial contact to closing and leveraged her team at Smith Spencer to make this journey a smooth one. Huge thank you to these ladies!
Gina is amazing!! Buying your first home is definitely not an easy process, but Gina was absolutely great! She made everything super easy to understand and made sure we knew exactly what needed to be done. Gina is so organized/communicative and even made us the perfect organized binder full of all the documents we needed! She found the most amazing houses for us to tour and made sure they had everything we were looking for! 10/10, recommend her for everyone! Thank you Gina, xoxo!
Stacy was an absolutely wonderful agent to work with during such a huge transition in our lives! She was efficient, knowledgable, understanding, knew our needs & explained everything to us to keep us comfortable and productive in the process of moving from out of state! I trusted her experience and valued her insight and she truly made this an enjoyable and smooth process for our entire family of 4!
I absolutely loved working with Gina. She held my hand through the entire home buying process. I walked into this with very little knowledge, so I was extremely grateful to be working with someone with such strong communication, organization, and honesty. She turned my initial feelings of stress and uncertainty into a genuinely fun and exciting experience. She was beyond understanding and I always felt like a true priority when working with her. Love this girl! Highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thank you Gina!
Erin made everything so easy! And it was fun. Exciting high-stakes negotiation there at the end. She handled it with aplomb. We love our beautiful new house.
Gina was wonderful, knew her stuff, wasn’t rushing us, answered all of our questions and was so kind!
Gina was extremely helpful in providing multiple tours, accommodating my schedule and answering my tons of questions. Couldn’t ask for a better home buying experience!
My husband and I have worked with Gina on multiple occasions, from communicating 3000 miles away to booking last minute showings the day of. We couldn’t imagine going through the home buying process with anyone else. Gina is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and charismatic. She truly cares for her clients & wants to find them their dream home! We are so appreciative to Gina for helping us find our home sweet Mount Pleasant home.
-Hailey & Spencer Schulz
She is the most helpful person I’ve met in this industry. She was tirelessly showing us homes until we found the one. Promptly answered all my messages and questions I had. No time was wasted when I had to reach her. She was always on time and patiently waited if I was late. Only good things come to mind when I think of her. I would recommend her to anyone I know. Professional lady who truly cares about her job and clients. I can honestly say we’ve developed a friendship throughout the search for our home. Wishing her the best luck in her career.
Erin did a fantastic job with and for us on the purchase of our condo. She did a great job negotiating with the seller and kept us informed every step of the way. We were not residents of SC and she put us in touch with the best group of professionals to help make our dream purchase become a reality. We thank her from the bottom of our hearts.
Stacy was a pleasure to work with! She helped me and my husband sell and buy in West Ashley. I reached out to Stacy in January about selling. My husband and I were nervous to begin the process. Stacy helped us prepare our home and ourselves (emotionally).
Stacy was committed to helping us sell our home. One day we got a last minute showing request (the ONLY day we didn’t make the bed or clean the kitchen from the previous night). I was going to decline the request because I wasn’t able to run home and tidy up before the showing. Stacy said don’t decline and she stopped by to make our bed and tidy up the kitchen at the last minute so we didn’t have to decline the showing. That client did not end up making an offer, but they did comment on how great the house looked-thanks Stacy!
We have been in our new home almost a week and could not be happier! We can’t wait to work with Stacy and the Smith Spencer team again!!
-Allison and Jason McVicker
Erin Spencer epitomizes everything you want in a realtor - thoroughly honest in her dealings, deeply knowledgeable of the area, well-connected with local professionals in the trades, always responsive to questions, and very in-tune with our best interests as home buyers. My husband and I are new to Charleston, and after ascertaining our interests and needs for a home, Erin zoned in on a couple areas she believed would be the best fit for us. We had multiple offers fall through for various reasons and Erin got us right back in the game by getting us in first to see a house that was just listed that morning. Now we’re living in that home and couldn’t be happier with our spot in West Ashley. Erin made the home buying experience as low-stress as possible, and Cynthia quickly and cheerfully helped me with the behind-the-scenes details and answered all my questions in order to be fully prepared for closing day. Erin is an ace to work with professionally and a downright nice person to be around, I can not recommend the Smith Spencer team highly enough!
Stacy and her team worked closely with us from start to finish to sell our home. This is our second time working with Stacy, and I recommend her to everyone I know. Selling during COVID-19 was a little daunting, but Stacy was always prepared with market reports and forecasts for our area and price point to guide us in our decision making. She and her team are responsive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Thank you again, Stacy!!
We had the most wonderful experience with Sarah Ellen Lacke representing us during the sale of our home on James Island. Her knowledge of the area was very impressive and she made herself so accessible to us every step of the way. I really appreciated her constant communication and friendship during a high stress time in our lives. We felt reassured being in such capable hands.
We worked with Sarah Ellen Lacke to both buy and sell our homes. From the very beginning Sarah Ellen had our best interest at heart and worked diligently and used her industry referrals to make things as easy as possible for us as her clients. Selling our home, she sold it for full asking price to a buyer she had in mind. We showed our house once! How wonderful is that! A previous realtor had quoted us a significantly lower listing price but Sarah Ellen knew the market and what our home was worth. Our home we went under contract to buy was also a different type of deal with a lot of work on her end! We won our bidding war due to some strategies she knew of, and because of unforeseen circumstances of the house, were under contract for a long period of time. During that time Sarah Ellen was patient and stood up for us as buyers on multiple occasions for what we felt was right. She was always there to help with any questions and guide us through the process. She was patient when needed but also made sure we stayed on track for what needed to be done. This was not an easy deal but she navigated it perfectly. I would highly recommend working with Sarah Ellen and the staff at Smith Spencer. They are smart, passionate, and caring about their clients.
Erin and her team convinced me to abandon my plan to go it alone in listing our home and buying another in the area. There were several complications during the selling and buying processes, as there often are, and Erin was able to help me navigate the situations to a successful outcome. She has also shared a valuable network of contacts I will use in years to come for routine maintenance and major renovations. I would not hesitate to recommend Erin and her team for your listing or home search in the Charleston area.
Erin and Cynthia helped me buy my first home! Here in the lovely Goose Creek area, she was very accommodating. I did not have the opportunity to come out to the location beforehand, but she gave me the opportunity to have a video tour of the home and made everything very easy on my end. Once I finally arrived, it was a simple matter to get a final tour of the home before closing! Highly recommend.
Stacy is great! She sold my condo in 5 days and kept me informed through the entire process. I have known Stacy for 14 years and she helped me buy my condo. She is very knowledgeable and realistic about price. I would not hesitate to to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Our experience working with the Smith Spencer Real Estate team was such a pleasure! They surpassed our expectations in every aspect. We are very detail oriented and Stacy and Cynthia blew us away by how they remained on top of every detail, big or small, during our entire experience with them. They hit the ground running from the beginning to the end to give us the real estate experience of our dreams...literally! It was a blessing to work with them.
Stacy made our recent dream purchase come true. She was always available and so responsive to all of our concerns throughout the process. Regardless of the question or concern she always made sure we received a complete answer or resolution each and every time. We couldn't be happier with the hard work and dedication Stacy and Cynthia provided us and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Sarah Ellen is an absolute professional and an exemplary agent. In assisting me and my wife with our home purchase on James Island, she was extremely responsive, honest and compassionate. One month after moving into our new home, she reminded us of important paperwork that we had planned to file. Dedication and kindness are not always synonymous with the industry, making her rarity. We are grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting and working with Sarah Ellen and look forward to doing so again in the future!
Erin helped my girlfriend and I buy our first home together and she did an incredible job! She was attentive, thorough, and incredibly easy to work with. We had a hurricane (thanks Dorian!) hit the day of our scheduled closing, which led to a few hiccups, but Erin guided us through the storm literally and figuratively. Would recommend her and her firm as a whole to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.
Polly is an amazing person and Realtor. She will work hard to learn your needs and fulfill them. She will be there every step of the way for you!
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.
Stacy was terrific and found us a place in Mt. Pleasant right near the golf courses just as we had requested. We were looking only about every three months from NC, but she stayed to the task and did not give up on us. Also a big help was provided by Cynthia who followed up on the whole process and was terrific.
Erin Spencer is the best! She simplified an overly confusing process and calmed my nerves the whole time. I couldn't be happier with my home buying experience and will be recommending her to everyone I know!
Erin took really great care of us. She looked out for our needs and what was in our best interest. She even knew before we did that this was the house for us. She worked with us for a very long time and she was very patient. We would use her again in a heartbeat!
Far too often the term “Trusted Advisor” is thrown around with little standard or definition. To me, Erin is the walking definition. I responded to her command of the facts and trends in the market that enabled us to make informed decisions re where to look and what to buy. Her analytical orientation made it easy to trust her as we dealt in facts not anecdote or market noise (typical of most realtors). Erin made me feel confident in my decision making and genuinely cared about my happiness, a first for me in over 20 transactions. The level of support from end to end was simply unparalleled.
I believe this young, progressive, intelligent firm represents the future of residential real estate. Bravo!
When it comes to Real Estate period, I have never met anyone more passionate, knowledgeable, and invested than Stacy Jennings. I met Stacy a few years ago and inquired about potentially making my first home purchase. Like all of us, I was full of excitement and ready to start looking. Stacy saw that I was a novice in the home buying world so instead of trying to take me on as a client for money. She helped me come up with a plan to make my experience a lot more smooth and gave the insight needed to feel more confident. I am now on track to purchase my first home soon with more knowledge. I’m so happy she guided me in the right direction. I now will be able to get the house I want instead of what I can get. Stacy you’re amazing at what you do!!
Sarah Ellen is absolutely the best! Super knowledgeable about the market and really gets me as a client! She does research, visits tons of homes with me, and really tries to understand my needs as a client in terms of the perfect investment purchase. And she's a ton of fun to work with, down to earth and super relatable! If you are looking for an incredible real estate rep that will work hard for you and respond quickly and efficiently, look no further! Sarah Ellen is the bomb!
Sarah Ellen Lacke is the absolute best, most amazing person to work with when it comes to real estate! Not only did she take the time to listen to all of our wants & needs (and I am picky)- she showed us a million different houses until we found our perfect dream home. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for finding us such a lovely place to call home. We will forever be using Sarah for all of our real estate needs in the future as well as our families'.
-Carolina Climate Control Office Manager
Stacy and Erin are super knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area!
Erin is the best. Professionalism combined with southern charm makes for an all around pleasant experience when Erin is involved. She makes you feel like you're the only client she has with attention to detail and dedication being hallmarks of her character. Smith Spencer's office space is modern, warm and refreshing. Plus a trip to the office is a great excuse to peruse the wares of downtown Charleston!
Sarah Ellen was amazing. She is very knowledgeable about the local market - especially the James Island area- and worked zealously and diligently to sell my home. My house was under contract within two weeks of going on the market. She went above and beyond, even helping me reserve movers/storage and find a temporary place to live while construction was completed on my new home. She has an amazing eye and was critical in helping me choose design elements in my new home. HIGHLY recommend!
Erin has the wit, intellect, and ambition to find your perfect property. Trust her! I’ve known her for 23 years!
Sarah Ellen is hands down the best realtor ever! She helped me purchase my home when I lived out of state and was very instrumental in helping me find the perfect home! She went above and beyond, and always made herself available!! Highly recommend her services!!

Working with Samantha Fuhr at Smith Spencer has been a dream! With thoughts of possibly selling our house, Samantha has made the start of this process easy and comforting and we couldn't imagine going through this without her knowledge, caring demeanor and professionalism.
I absolutely loved working with Samantha Fuhr! She listened to what was important to me and helped me find a home that is perfect for me and my daughter.
I had a fantastic home-buying experience with Stacy Jennings at Smith Spencer. As a first-time homebuyer, I was a bit apprehensive about the whole process (and uninformed), but Stacy patiently answered all my questions and talked through my concerns with me. She's very knowledgeable about the local market and always noticed things that I would have missed. I always felt like Stacy had my best interests at heart and really cared about getting me in a home that was right for me.
Sarah Ellen was the consummate professional, knowledgeable, thorough, hard working, great negotiator and strong communicator. Her knowledge of the local markets helped negotiate a great deal for a great house. Would recommend highly.
I was a first time seller, and was fortunate enough to be connected to Samantha Fuhr. Her real estate expertise and guidance made what could have been a stressful process, a most pleasant one! She is organized, attentive and a most knowledgable agent. Thank you Samantha, and Smith Spencer!

Sarah Ellen was very professional and a joy to work with. She helped facilitate the sale of our condo and into our family's new home. She was always on time and very knowledge. It was so helpful to have the peace of mind working with such a professional.
Sarah Ellen was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her for the greater Charleston area! The escrow was smooth and uneventful. I plan to work with SE next year, as we hope to purchase another income property in Charleston.
If you are looking for a great agent, ask for Sam. She is wonderful, knowledgable, and dedicated to her work.
Samantha Fuhr is a wonderful agent! She has a keen knowledge of the local market and can assist you through the entire process. Samantha is very patient when clients have lots of questions
I highly recommend Sam if your looking for anything in the Charleston area!
I have known Sarah Ellen for over five years. We first made contact when my husband and I lived in Los Angeles and were planning to retire to SC in a couple of years. Long story short we ended up selling our house in CA and buying In Mt Pleasant a year and a half sooner than expected. Not only did everything go smoothly - it was accomplished in 45 days. We could never have done this without Sarah Ellen at the helm. She was and is a highly professional agent; knowledgeable, reactive and goes to great lengths for her clients. Could not recommend more highly.
