Charleston Native and Seasoned Broker Joins Applegate Real Estate

Applegate Real Estate welcomes Jack Gumb as a Broker Associate. Charleston, SC native and 13 year Real Estate veteran, Jack Gumb has developed a deep appreciation for the city and its environs. Upon earning an undergraduate and graduate degree from the University of South Carolina, Jack returned to Charleston to begin his real estate career with The Masters Company. After five years of successfully servicing first-time, investment property, commercial and residential buyers and sellers, his varied experience allowed him to open Gumb Real Estate as the principal broker. His first project was to oversee a large-scale historic restoration project that would span three years and result in three high-end condominiums housed in a circa 1855 home on Vanderhorst Street in downtown Charleston's design district. Soon after, his firm joined The Litchfield Company where he opened and operated the company's Charleston arm for 7 years. With a keen interest in maintaining the integrity of Charleston’s prized historic district, the soundness of its many natural resources, and quality of surrounding neighborhoods, Gumb is active in the community and its notable nonprofits including: the Carolina Youth Development Center, Coastal Conservation Association and Spoleto Festival USA. Additionally, he is a member of the Hibernian Society, the Porter-Gaud School Alumni Board, National Association of Realtors and Charleston Trident Association of Realtors as well as Grace Episcopal Church. Jack lives on the Isle of Palms with his wife Elizabeth and their three children.

"Jack is a great addition to the firm, bringing with him vast knowledge of the real estate market, strong relationships in Charleston and a close connection to the community," says Cuyler Applegate, owner and broker-in-charge of Applegate Real Estate.

Applegate Real Estate is a boutique real estate firm in downtown Charleston specializing in historic downtown, the expanding upper peninsula, waterfront of the Lowcountry and surrounding neighborhoods just over the Ashley River and Ravenel Bridges.
