“According to the National Association of Realtors, Charleston is one of 10 markets to have home price appreciation that outpaces the rest of the country over the next three to five years,” said Helen Geer, President and Broker-in-Charge for William Means Real Estate. “Our agents and company work diligently to stay on top of market trends while ensuring that clients are making the most informed decision for their lifestyle and family. Our clients’ allegiance demonstrates our client-focused approach.”

The company’s real estate agents work from offices in downtown Charleston and the I’On neighborhood of Mount Pleasant. William Means was the No. 1 top-producing boutique firm in I’On last year, making it their tenth consecutive year holding that distinction in the community. In addition to this success, they remain leaders and experts in historic homes with more than $63 million alone in downtown Charleston sales last year.

“In the competitive Charleston market, it is a true testament to our strong team of agents that we achieved two back-to-back years of record sales,” said Drew Grossklaus, Director of Sales and East Cooper Broker-in-Charge for William Means Real Estate. “We anticipate continued success in the local and luxury real estate markets as we look ahead to 2020.”
