Hello all! I moved here from a small town in Washington state, called Battle Ground. It was a rural area just north of Vancouver, Washington. Over the past 10+ years, I have throughly enjoyed becoming a South Carolinian. Nothing beats the views of the Pacific Northwest, however, it is now just a beautiful place to visit with the mountain views and great company to catch up with. My home is here, the great upstate of South Carolina. My husband and I met when we were just teenagers in Washington but God didn’t have us begin our lives together till 2011. Let me tell you, “our story” is something that you would never believe, unless you talk to our family and friends. It just proves to show you, that you are never really in control when you want to be!Read More +

After 6 moves, we have finally found a realtor who had our best interests at heart. We have used Zillow and Realtor.com to do most of our own research for all our previous moves, but the experience with Darlene was very different than anything we experienced in the past. Darlene was proactive, knowledgeable, and truly added value from our first conversation until after we closed.- Jason
