Dunes Properties Welcomes Four New Agents To The Real Estate Studio

Charleston, SC, June 24, 2019 – dunes properties is pleased to announce the addition of Neil Sneath, Phil Dunford, Terry Bell-Aby, and Thomas Markham to their team of professional REALTORS® at The Real Estate Studio, the downtown office of dunes properties.

Neil Sneath

Originally from Florida, Neil Sneath has always had a passion for coastal living and warm weather. After graduating from the University of Central Florida in 2007 with a B.S in Criminal Justice, Neil made the move to Charleston in 2008 to pursue a career in public service. With over a decade of service under his belt, he admittedly still enjoys his interactions with Charleston natives on a daily basis, which has helped him develop a unique local knowledge of the area. Neil is no stranger to giving back to his community, having served as a volunteer at the MUSC Children’s Hospital from 2013-2017. He is also a current volunteer tutor with Reading Partners at a Memminger Elementary, and serves on several school-based committees. Outside of work, Neil enjoys golfing at The James Island Muni, boating on Charleston’s amazing waterways, or taking on home improvement projects. Neil can be reached at nsneath@dunesproperties.com or 843.708.4993.

Philip Dunford, aka “Phil,” landed in Charleston back in 2009, by way of Ohio. Opting for sandy beaches over snowy roads seemed like a no-brainer. He is a graduate of Miami University (Love & Honor!) with a degree in Business Management and a minor in Geography. Phil has a background in Law Enforcement, and thus excels at providing the utmost professional service. When not working, Phil is an active member in the community, to include coaching at James Island Christian School, competing in local triathlons and serving in a variety of capacities. He resides on James Island with his lovely wife and their children. Phil can be reached at pdunford@dunesproperties.com or 513.318.5873.

Terry Bell-Aby

After 10 years of winters on Martha’s Vineyard and even more before in snowy PA, Terry Bell-Aby looked for a new adventure that would include palm trees. Charleston had the beach, a lively arts community, and a destination lifestyle that included palm trees! Charleston has it all and more. Terry checked the final two boxes when she got satellite service (required to stay on top of the Red Sox and Steelers) and found a dynamic church on Meeting Street. She now lives on beautiful Johns Island and loves the Lowcountry life. Terry really likes real estate and houses – consequently the details are fun – and has been doing it for more than 20 years. Whether you are a local or newcomer to the area, let Terry help you have fun looking for your Charleston adventure. Terry can be reached at terry@dunesproperties.com or 508.627.2988.


Thomas Markham

Thomas Markham is from a family of real estate investors and professionals. He grew up loving homes and has been helping buyers, sellers, and investors reach their goals for more than a decade. His unique understanding of the Charleston market and its many neighborhoods inspired him to start the website Charleston101.com. Thomas graduated from Haverford College, where he majored in English with a minor in Anthropology. He lived in Maryland and Atlanta, and now calls Mount Pleasant home. In his free time, Thomas enjoys cycling, golf, and kayaking. Thomas can be reached at tmarkham@dunesproperties.com or 843.300.7420.
