“I have been a pastor in the area for about 2 decades which has allowed me to work with a wide range of local people. I also have a great love for the Low Country and the Kiawah/Seabrook/Johns Island area. I’ve been blessed to have been the top Johns Island reselling agent for several years now. I strive to give the buyers and sellers I work with a high level of service along with an attitude of thankfulness for I work in one of the best areas on the planet! My faith has been a big asset in this field for not all have experienced a full serving of integrity when purchasing a home or property. It also has allowed me to not only help with a purchase or sale but to also walk people through some of the difficult issues of life that sometimes a client finds themselves dealing with. There are a lot of needs out there. I certainly look forward to working with those that are searching for their next place!”

“Paul helped us get a deal done. Negotiations went smoothly and his knowledge of the area was an important part of reaching a price both sides could agree upon. Paul is a personable and knowledgeable agent. His being a member of the local community made a difference to us as he sees the big picture. We would recommend Paul, just like others did when we asked around, because he is an honest, trustworthy individual that will do the best he can to provide exceptional service.” -Dennis
“I first met Paul on his OWN back deck as we were looking around a spec house in Kiawah River Estates. He offered to open it up and show us around and we accepted. Paul then offered to show us other houses in the neighborhood including one that was a short sale. He helped us buy it at a fabulous price, even paying for a repair out of his own pocket that the owner wouldn't fix. I would recommend Paul to anyone wanting a patient, low keyed, realtor who is a total expert on the local real estate market. Paul has integrity, sound advice, the ability to negotiate a great deal, and will always get back to you on any question you may have. I would always recommend Paul!” -Mary Ann
