Learn About Us
dunes properties of Charleston is a real estate, vacation rental and property management company. Below is a little “about us” to help you discover what sets us apart.
We began with a single office and three employees in 1989. Today, we represent the Lowcountry with over 80 exclusive beach vacation rental properties, 70 real estate agents and employees, five full-service offices and many plans for the future.
We are still locally owned and operated. Our offices have the entire Charleston Coast covered – from our original office on the Isle of Palms to our office at Bohicket Marina, offering Kiawah, Seabrook, Johns Island and Wadmalaw. Our Folly Beach location covers not only the beach but all areas West of the Peninsula including James Island and West Ashley. The Real Estate Studio, our flagship office, in the heart of downtown Charleston‘s historic shopping district, serves all areas of the Charleston Coast. We’ve recently added a team of Mount Pleasant specialists to serve the fastest-growing town in the Charleston area.
Our licensed, experienced real estate agents make buying and selling on the Charleston Coast a priority. As permanent residents, our real estate agents realize clients are more than out-of-town customers or rental owners. They are our future neighbors.
We know and love Charleston and the Lowcountry. Whether it’s a vacation home, an investment or a primary residence, real estate is always an important purchase, and it deserves the attention of a dedicated professional. How can we serve you? Let us know today.
