Our Agents Get Rave Reviews!

Erin Schauwecker, Elaine Brabham And Associates, LLC

We've worked with Erin for years, both buying and selling. She is extremely knowledgeable and always goes the extra mile to get things done! There were some complications and difficulties with our last sale that were outside of our control, but Erin handled everything deftly and kept us in the loop at all times.
Erin is awesome! I can’t say enough good things about working with her, and she exceeded all my expectations in selling my condo. I didn’t know her before, but remembered seeing a few flyers from her in the mail. I talked with a few realtors, but Erin was an immediate fit. She is an expert with condos, especially at the Arboretum, and has an incredible track record there. The whole process was very smooth - she was always a step ahead and knew all about the intricacies of my condo, HOA, rules, etc. My favorite quality is that Erin treats you as if you are most important. She is extremely responsive with communication, and replies back to text messages and email very quickly. She also took time to answer my many questions and was super helpful in explaining everything, as it was my first time selling. Plus she’s very down to earth and tells it to you straight, is up front, and honest. She also checked on my property when I was away, and she helped recommend contractors and even called to get quotes for a few minor repairs from the buyer’s inspection. Because she knew the market so well, we listed as one of the highest, we got an offer in two weeks, and I was very happy to sell at full price. Again, I can’t say how much I appreciate working with Erin, and I wish I would have found her sooner when I was buying. She has my highest recommendation.
Erin was easy to work with. She was always willing to answer my questions and always considered my input when we Had to make some decisions. I never got the impression she just wanted to make a quick sale. I felt she worked just as much with me as she did for me. I ended up selling my place for $3500 more than what two other agents wanted to initially list my unit as their 90 day price. Overall I’m very happy with the entire process and there is a reason she came highly recommended from my condo HOA.
Erin is amazing! She has the work.through tough and stressful circumstances! Her.follow.through and detailed communication skills are excellent. She understands the condo market so.well. Selling or buying a different and her skills shine through! I highly recommend Erin and would absolutely use her again!
Erin is a spectacular realtor with remarkable expertise in buying and/or selling condos in the greater Charleston area. When my wife and I decided to sell our condo in West Ashley and move to Chicago, we were quite nervous since this was our first home. From day one, Erin demonstrated her insight about the ins and outs of selling a home as well as knowledge pertaining to our HOA. She knew things about our HOA that we didn't, and we'd been living there for over a year! She was responsive and on point in terms of our sales price. She generated showings early and often, and we received an offer only one month after listing, which I'd argue is awesome for a condo in Charleston's current market conditions. Seriously, if you need to buy or sell a condo in Charleston, Erin should be the first realtor you contact!
Erin did a terrific job of selling our condo in Long Grove. She was professional from beginning to close! We received a post card in the mail and from the time I called Erin, to the closing date, she gave us feedback and all the help we needed.

Megan Schwerin, Elaine Brabham And Associates, LLC

Megan is an honest, hard-working and reliable agent. I have worked with her over the past six years in the buying and selling of two houses and a lot of land. I'm confident in her knowledge of the market as well as her professionalism in working with other agents. I think she has always priced our properties accurately and given us solid guidance in negotiating in both the buying and selling process. On a personal level, Megan is easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor, so it was always a pleasure to do showings with her and talk to her on a regular basis. She's a great person to know and I highly recommend her to anyone.
Megan is a dedicated professional who strives to do her very best. She is accommodating and a knowledgeable and savvy negotiator. Her understanding of the buying and selling process made the transition easy for our family.
I moved to SC from CA so the process of finding a rental property was tricky. However, Megan worked with me, even before I arrived in SC to look at places. She had lined up close to 15 places for me to check out on our first outing. She made all the phone calls, she was willing to kindly speak to neighbors for information, and she even brought drinks and snacks in the car because I had mentioned that I had low blood sugar. She found me my dream property, and I know she will work hard to find any client their perfect home, also.
Megan Schwerin helped me find my house about 7 years ago. When I decided to move out of state, Megan took on the great task of getting my house sold even though I was moving right after it was listed 300 miles away. I don't know what I would have done without her help, guidance, and support. There were some surprise issues with the house which needed to be fixed immediately and she faced them head on. I don't know many people with a work ethic like Megan's. Throughout the whole process, I felt better knowing Megan was on my team and she was helping me through with her motivation and kindness. She accomplished getting my house sold quickly and was dedicated to dealing with any problems even tough,at times, it was a lot. Megan is an amazing person and realtor whom I would recommend to everyone.
Megan is a dedicated real estate professional. She works very hard and is knowledgeable of all real estate values. Her negotiation skills are excellent and she is very personable. You will like her expertise from the beginning of the sale to the closing.
We couldn't have asked for a better person to represent us in our home-buying process. Megan is hard working, knowledgeable, helpful, kind and understanding. The process ended up being much longer than any of us anticipated and Megan was always so patient and helped us along every step of the way. She is never pushy and helps you make an informed decision without being overbearing. I would recommend her to anyone in the Lowcountry who is considering buying or selling a home. I couldn't imagine anyone else being more helpful. She is unwaveringly focused on the end goal of the client and does whatever needs to be done to make it happen. Thanks a million, Megan!!!
Megan has helped me with several real estate transactions in the Charleston, SC area in addition to the one cited below. She was and is very professional and thorough.

The Ashley Ave house referenced below is in the Charleston historic district which required special skill and knowledge in marketing. Even with a limited buyer base she sold the house in a respectable time frame and at a fair price, despite the down real estate market.

She also was my realtor in the purchase of a house in Park Shore and a boat slip at Ashley Harbor Marina plus the sale of acreage on John's Island.

She currently is marketing another piece of real estate for me.

I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Eve Sokol, Elaine Brabham And Associates, LLC

Eve is incredible! She showed my husband and I several homes. She was so patient with us! We finally found a diamond in the rough that would be perfect for us. She did an excellent job!

Stephanie Howard, Elaine Brabham And Associates, LLC

Stephanie Howard is incredible to work with! She partnered with us for over one-year as we transitioned from horse-farm life in Virginia to the “salt life” in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. She is one of the best realtors with whom we have worked. She has also become a friend and a family member. Stephanie was responsive, diligent, and honest; she made the process of home buying as stress free as possible, and she made it fun! She never tired of our hunt for the perfect home! Stephanie also made invaluable connections and referrals for us, which made the move and transition to our new life even easier. We highly recommend Stephanie Howard and are so happy to have met her!

Hilary Rieck, Elaine Brabham And Associates, LLC

Dear Hilary and the entire team at Elaine Brabham and Ass.

Thank you so much for the wonderful help you gave us with the sale of our home. We couldn't have asked for a more successful transaction. In addition the Lowe's gift card you sent us for use at our new home was so generous. We appreciate your thoughtfulness.

With many thanks K and S T

I am writing in response to your thoughtful letter dated December 12, 2016. I am most pleased to share that the services provided by Hilary Rieck did indeed exceed my expectations. I feel strongly that your confidence in Hilary and her professional guidance is very well placed.

Hilary is truly the consummate professional. She is knowledgeable, thorough, sensitive, responsive, and pleasant. She attends to details as well as to the big picture with ease.

Remarkably, she handled everything in a timely and perfect manner, despite the fact that I live out of state and was working during the time I purchased the house. Importantly, I still consider Hilary a professional resource and she has continued to extend a helping hand.

Thank you for writing. Please know that I will always provide the highest rating for the service provided by Hilary Rieck as an agent of your company.

Great agent! She's busy, but she'll give you and your home search personal attention. She also listed our home and took care of everything from marketing to negotiation.
Hilary was awesome to work with for the purchase of our new home. She communicated with us constantly and kept us up to speed during the whole process. We closed in less than a month and she made sure every one was on track and doing their part. She was also very knowledgeable about fair market value which really helped with our negotiation to get us the best deal possible! I highly recommend Hilary for any real estate purchase because she knows the area, is easy to get along with, and very helpful when it comes time to purchase.
Hilary is dependable, professional and honest. She has an enthusiasm for her clients and really takes the time to listen to their needs. I encourage you to hire her as your agent, you will not be disappointed!

John Ford, Elaine Brabham And Associates, LLC

We have worked with John for over thirty years now. He has helped us with the sale or purchase of over a dozen pieces of property. Without exception, the transactions have been both enhanced by his experience and knowledge and structured to ensure we've received maximum benefit. This is due to John's philosophy of operating solely in his client's best interest. Talk about integrity - John has actually talked us out of a couple of purchases. In hindsight, we realized he was absolutely correct. Imagine that, more interested in our well being than his commission. We have referred several friends and business associates to John and, all have been as pleased as we are. Truly, John is the consummate broker who has earned our trust, faith and all real estate business.

- J and C F

My wife and I entrusted the sale of our first home on James Island to Mr. John Ford. That ended up being the best decision we could have made. Mr. Ford was the consummate professional who was always proactive and stayed ahead of the game. His approach allowed my wife and I the peace of mind knowing that everything was getting squared away and moving forward. When we encountered an unexpected CL-100 problem that could have derailed the entire deal and given the buyer pause for concern, Mr. Ford calming reassured the buyers and aggressively sought out contractors for repairs. When the dust settled, we closed a few days later with a full asking price offer from our very first showing! Seriously, when you are searching for an agent to buy and/or sell your property there is no need to look any further than John Ford.

- D and J A

John Ford was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was our tireless advocate and helped us overcome multiple obstacles, including Hurricane Matthew! Thanks, John, for helping us make our dream a reality. I would highly recommend him as your real estate agent.

- L and S M

John has extensive knowledge of Charleston and the Charleston real estate market. He was very responsive and genuinely interested in helping me find the right home. Moving from out of state, I had a lot of questions that he was easily able to answer and he provided me with the information I needed to make the right choice in a home. His follow-up throughout the entire process was amazing! Thank you again for everything. John made the process painless. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Charleston.

We were so thankful to have you as our agent. For always making yourself available, for your great knowledge, and for your overall kindness! You didn't make us feel like just another client, you really did care about our well being. The sale of my aunt's house feels like a miracle! Thank you for getting it sold!

Sean Hethington, Elaine Brabham And Associates, LLC

I just wanted to reach out and thank you for everything you have done for me the past several years. I am beginning to look for new property and wanted you as my realtor once again. As my realtor on both the buying and selling side, I never had a question go unanswered or felt kept in the dark about any process. You made everything seamless as possible. I know you have many clients, but what I enjoyed most about working with you and your team is you made me feel like I was your only client. That is exactly what I want from my realtor. I look forward to working with you in the near future to find that forever home! Thanks again for all that you do.

Lisa Stine, Elaine Brabham And Associates, LLC

Lisa was fantastic to work with and I highly recommend using her as your real estate agent when purchasing in the greater Charleston area. She addressed our concerns with efficiency and provided excellent customer service. Her market knowledge is strong and she worked hard to help us find our forever home!
Lisa helped my wife and I sell our home in 2018. Lisa was fantastic! She was very helpful and did a great job of communicating with us as we moved through the process. If you are looking for an experienced realtor that will take her time, listen, and give you honest feedback Lisa is the one!
