                  Great. She sold our home in 12 days in a neighborhood that had homes on the market for several months. We took her advice on how to stage our home. She sold our home while we were out of the country!!

                  • Loren listed and sold my home

                      This is the second time we have had Loren as our realtor. We could not be happier with the time, expertise and personal attention she gave us.

                        She was very efficient and professional. The sale went through quickly and the closing went very smoothly.

                      • Loren is the best, she was on top of all aspects of the buying process. Made me laugh a lot, great personality.

                      • Loren is amazing!

                        - Michael Mazin
                      • Loren sold my last home. It was a quick, easy, and great experience under the circumstances! I look forward to doing business with her soon as we are get ready for our next home purchase!!

                        - Billy Duttine
                      • Lauren has been a friend and agent of mine for many years and I wouldn't trust anybody else with my home buying. If you are moving out of the area she will even help you find a good Agent in the area you want to go. Wonderful person to work with, she will be a friend before it's over.

                        - Wendy Pilling
                      • It took me 3 years to decide on a house but Loren stuck with me every step of the way. In the end, I bought the perfect property & at a good price. I could not have done it without the dedication of Loren, who made the process easy and had all the answers before I knew the questions.

                        - Dale Lullo
                      • Loren was the absolute BEST at finding us the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood. Her amazing knowledge of the various communities saved us so much time in our relocation from Ohio. Can't say enough good things about The Bethea Team and Carolina One!

                        - Gloria Cribben
                      • I cried the first time I met Loren Bethea. My house was a disaster in a great neighborhood. I don't think she expected to become my realtor but she was honest. Brutally honest, which is what I needed to hear. I took everything she said and transformed my house from a near handy man's special to a postcard. Even she could hardly believe it. It sold immediately at asking price. Unfortunately our buyers decided to divorce and canceled right before closing. Loren met me at my friend's house to let me know. Back on the market with more open houses and another buyer from another state that canceled within 24 hours since they hadn't seen the house. (Who buys a house sight unseen?). It was a long road but Loren continued to tell me it was going to sell. It did! The folks who bought it LOVE the crazy landscaping and the house. I was fourth on a chain of houses to close and Loren guided me through the stress. She has the phone numbers of electricians, landscapers, lawyers, carpenters, whatever is needed. I think if I asked her for a therapist she would have given me a number for one. Her motto is under promise and over- deliver. That sums it up. She is not only my agent we have become friends.

                      • We were referred to Loren by our son, who highly recommended her. Loren is very professional and knows the area very well. She's been doing this for a long time. She is easy to talk to and provides great advice. She is knowledgeable about the market and shares her insights with you. She would educate you and make you feel comfortable. She cared about what you wanted and wanted to make sure you felt comfortable with every decision. She was easy to get in contact with and would respond in a timely manner, even on a weekend.Loren is great and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

                      • I highly recommend Loren Bethea for any of your real estate needs. Eight years ago I reached out to her, and she was a tremendous help in my consideration to purchase my first home. Although I ultimately decided to wait, I couldn't have been any more satisfied with the experience. A couple years later my boyfriend, now husband, was ready to purchase a house and I recommend her. He also had the same positive feelings about her. Then it was my sister's turn to purchase, I recommend Loren again. Yet again she delivered with amazing knowledge and satisfaction. Just recently we called upon Loren for her amazing service for my husband and I to purchase raw land. Loren never ceases to amaze me. She has done such a wonderful job in helping our dreams come true time and time again for me any my family. Over the years I have recommend Loren to anyone I know because of the trust and love I have for her and my family and friends. I would like to extend this to anyone else looking for a knowledge, unbiased agent. She will look out for YOU first. WARNING: she will most likely bring you to tears with happiness.

                      • Loren not only knew intimate details of the Summerville residential area, but she also took the time to listen to our personal requirements to better direct us to the perfect home for our family.

                        - Jaime Schaecher
                      • We interview three agents and Loren was easily our number one choice. She's experienced, knowledgeable and a joy to work with. I would enthusiastically recommend her.

                        - Neil White
                      • We met Lauren as she was knocking on doors in our neighborhood. She had a client who wanted to buy in our neighborhood, but houses were going so fast that they kept missing out. So she was out to see if anyone was interested in selling but hadn't put their house on the market yet. We were already headed that way, and our interaction with Loren that afternoon put us over the edge. We listed with her the next day, and while the clients that she was looking for ended up going with a different house, she was great in getting our house sold at the price we wanted. She had great advice on how to stage the home so it would show well, she hired a photographer to come and take professional pictures for the listing, and she put us in touch with some great contractors to do some of the repair work that was needed. Overall, I highly recommend Loren to anyone thinking about selling their house in the Charleston area.

                        - Sean Ryan
                      • Loren was so amazing too work with! Even my mother in law, who has the highest of standards/expectations, LOVED her!! We felt extremely well taken care of, and always like Loren had OUR best interest in mind. She kept us on track and on a very aggressive timeline for inspections, closing, and the final move in. She is a lovely and intelligent person and I will be recommending her to anyone interested in the area.

                        - Lisa Ciampi
                      • Loren is extremely knowledgeable and responsive. She was a joy to be with. She was very helpful in relocation aspects going well beyond what would have been expected in any real estate transaction. Her attention to detail made our move a very pleasant experience.

                        - Deb & Charlie Overend
                      • Loren made the whole process run smooth without a hitch. Any questions that came up were answered quickly and we were never left wondering this or that. She is very efficient and knowledgeable. We will send anyone interested in the houseing market to Loren.

                        - Rickey & Ellen Smith
                      • Loren is very knowledgeable and answered our questions promptly. She is an excellent agent and made it a smooth process. She was flexible and listened to our needs. Highly recommended!

                        - Tom & Jillian Utley
                      • Loren is was excellent in helping us both sell and purchase our home. Loren was with us every step of the way, and always made herself available, even when she was out of town. I found her to be very knowledgeable as it relates to the real estate business. She is very personable and would recommend her to sell a home for any of my friend as well as family members.

                        - Roger & Dana Owens
                      • Loren was a great agent to have on our side when it came to purchasing our first home. We moved from overseas and needed to close on a home quick because we were using up a lot of cash in hotels. Loren was very patient, but expedient with us and found a home that was exactly what we wanted. She even worked with her preferred lender (shout out to Premier Lending) to get us in the home in less than 30 days. Loren is a very down-to-earth person and really took the time to get to know our family. She truly cared about the area she put us in and looked out for our best interest, and not her own. She shared some history of the area as well as some of the great places to visit...like the good southern restaurants. We absolutely loved working with Loren and wouldn't have another agent. We still plan on inviting her over to our new home once we get it "personalized". Thanks, Loren!

                        - Travis & Catey Tewes
                      • Loren is personable, extremely knowledgeable, and overall lovely to work with. Being a local, she knows the area and the neighborhoods and is able to streamline your search. We can really enjoy working with her! And highly recommend her.

                        - Faye & Lanny Mackall
                      • Loren was very professional and very attentive with us. Loren helped us to find our dream house. We really appreciate all the help and expertise that Loren shared with us. Thanks Loren!!!"

                        - Christian Ortiz Ayala
                      • Loren helped us sell our first home, and it was a great experience. She walked us through everything we needed to do and went out of her way to help us. Loren listed our house on a Thursday and we had our first offer on Tuesday for full asking price! We couldn't have asked for a more efficient, knowledgeable realtor. Thank you Loren!!

                        - Katie MCracken
                      • My husband and I are relatively new to the area and interviewed several realtors before starting the home-buying process. Loren stood out right away and she exceeded all of our expectations. She was patient with all of our questions (and answered them competently), knowledgeable about the area and people to recommend to help with our home purchase (and beyond), and a delight to work with. We, without a doubt, recommend Loren to anyone wanting to buy (or sell) a home in this area!

                        - Kristen Hefner
                      • I would like to Thank You for working with us on selling our properties in Summerville. You stayed in touch with us continually and I know you worked hard in doing so. Your efforts were always courteous and professional. All advice and help given was very helpful to us in all areas requested. Thank You again and we look forward to working with you in the future, when we decide to permanently move to Summerville, S.C.--

                        - Sharon & Paul Scappetto
                      • Loren has represented my wife and I on multiple real estate transactions and has truly been the consummate professional on each one of them. We have worked with Loren on some very complex real estate deals and she has shown her ability to deal with and negotiate with any type of buyer or seller , while keeping our best interest at hand. Loren does her homework and listens to her clients needs and desires, before providing recommendations that maybe counterproductive. Loren is a true real estate professional and a good person to have representing you, when you need an advocate to help with purchasing or selling a piece of real estate.

                        - Manny & Carla Jimenez
                      • We love Loren!! From the very first phone call, we knew that we made the right choice to use Loren as our realtor. She was with us every step of the way from our re-location to move-in day. Loren was the first to call us when there was a hurricane warning and even offered to take in my family and dogs!! If you are looking for a realtor that is full of knowledge and personality then you need to work with Loren!

                        - Brian & Jennifer Gleber
                      • Loren sold our house in 12 days in a neighboorhood that had homes on the market for several months. We followed her advice on how to stage our home. She sold the house while we were out of the county and everything went smoothly.

                        - Linda Feddern
                      • One of the best moves we ever made was contacting Loren to be our buyers agent! We were moving into a gated active adult community, and there are only two in our target area. No need for a Realtor, since we were building a new house, right? Wrong! There are myriad details, inspections, decisions to make, and other issues that needed immediate action. Problem was we were 600 miles away. Thats where Loren came in. She was on the spot, on the ball for us the entire time. Plus, the developer of a new community really doesnt want to make Realtors mad, so I think we got better service because of her involvement. Loren is very affable, very professional, and she was a wonderful find. You cant go wrong if she is involved!

                        - Rick & Beth Gilbert
                      • Loren is extremely knowledgeable and responsive. She was a joy to be with. She was very helpful in relocation aspects going well beyond what would have been expected in any real estate transaction. Her attention to detail made our move a very pleasant experience.
