Dave Friedman Real Estate
About Dave

Voted Best Realtor in Charleston in 2014, it is easy to say that Dave Friedman is committed to his work. This prestigious award, given to one realtor out of more than 5,000 in Charleston's tri-county area, was given to Dave by the Charleston City Paper. As the owner of one of the top real estate teams in Charleston, Dave has proven that he has what it takes to find or sell your home. He has been named a Top Producing Realtor for 13 years, and is in the top 1% of Realtors worldwide. He's also been featured on HGTV's show House Hunters. Dave has closed hundreds of transactions over his 15+ years in real estate, earning a JD Power score of 9.5 in complete customer satisfaction for 5 years running. He works hard to get you the deal you''re looking for – Dave averages 4% more savings than the average transaction. In 2013, Dave sold 95% of his listings within 35 days, and within 2.5% of asking price, far exceeding the area averages. Dave has spent the past 15+ years analyzing the home buying and selling process for his clients. He has dedicated his time to streamlining the process and improving the results. Dave has surrounded himself with the leading experts in the field and is committed to continuing education so that he can always ensure he's offering the best advice and information for today's market. Part of Dave's business philosophy is that it's better to be great at one thing than to be okay at several things. That's why Dave has hired a team of experts to work alongside him, from client care coordinators to closing experts, photographers to professional writers. Dave''s clients know they are always receiving top-notch professionalism and expertise. As the Chairman for Charleston Top Producers, Dave has been actively involved in his field even outside of closing deals. Dave is also a humanitarian, using his skills and influence to successfully organize and market three blood drives for the American Red Cross. He volunteers regularly with Habitat for Humanity, because he believes everyone should know the joy of home ownership. Despite his busy work schedule, Dave loves spending time with his wife Halley and their mutts, Flea, at their home in downtown Charleston. They both love sports – Halley is an Auburn grad, and Dave roots for anything related to Michigan and Detroit, as he grew up in southeastern Michigan. Dave is thrilled that every day he gets to pursue his passion of helping people and their families realize their dreams of home ownership.

Debbie Cromer
Century 21 Properties Plus
About Debbie

Many agents think their most important job is satisfying the customer. I believe that satisfying the customer is simply the MINIMUM requirement for staying in business. I work constantly to improve my systems, processes and services to go well beyond the standard level of service provided by most agents. I do more than sell houses. I solve problems. I create solutions. I connect the dots. I am the space between where you are and where you are going. I fully appreciate the emotional aspects involved during the purchase and/or sale of your property, and respect the confidential nature of the information you share with me. My professional reputation relies on discretion. I am worthy of your trust. I am committed to providing you with a level of service that is deserving of my referral to your family, friends, and colleagues. I want you to be so pleased with my representation of your real estate needs, that I will earn your business again in the future. Your real estate needs, objectives, and concerns are my top priority.

When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.
