Anonymous recommends Kelly Shealy

Kelly was very helpful when touring homes and never allowed us to get discouraged in the crazy housing market about finding a home.

Arizona oxendine recommends Kelly Shealy

I can’t say enough about how much of a pleasure it was to work with Kelly. We had him all over the upstate, at crazy times even on holidays, and he never hesitated to make it happen. He always went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable with the house and he had an unlimited amount of resources to go over the house or look into anything we had questions about. Between the long hours and late nights he put in for us, I can’t thank him enough. Without Kelly, our offer would have never been excepted. It’s because of him we have our dream house. His knowledge of the industry and his honesty in every situation is hard to come by. Even now that we have bought our home, I still reach out with questions and he helps willingly! All that being said I can’t recommend him enough.

Jordan forbis recommends Lochlan Adams

Lochland has been amazing since day one. We probably looked at close to 15 houses and he consistently displayed patience and enthusiasm. Not only was he professional and answered any questions we had, but also displayed a great sense of humor that put our stress at ease. He is the type of person that turns into a friend and we look forward to keeping in touch.

David Penny recommends Steven Pieper


From the very first day Steven reached out to my wife and I he was extremely professional. Steven started showing us homes the very first day we were introduced. He was diligent in gathering as much information about what we were looking for and what our family's needs entailed for our new home. Steven was always communicating with us on upcoming homes sales and quickly set appointments with sellers to make our search as easy as possible. He worked with our busy schedules and found our new home which was exactly what we were looking for. From house hunting to closing day he was always available to meet us or chat on the phone to answer any questions or concerns. My wife and I are extremely fortunate that we had the privilege to work with Steven as our agent. Steven was the first person we meet after moving to SC and we think of him as a friend. We would highly recommend his company and services to anyone. We say thank you to Steven for a great agent and a great person.

Henry & Brenda Leal recommend Justin Shinko

Justin was in contact with us since before we moved from New York to South Carolina. When I visited a few times to see the area, Justin always took the time to show us a few houses. Justin was never pushed, instead he encouraged us to make the decision for a house that really made us happy and met our needs. He always answered our questions and showed interest in helping us fulfill our dream of finding our home. I recommend Justin 100% is one of the realtors who adapts to your schedule, advises you and makes you feel supported through the whole process!

John & Betsy recommend Steven Pieper

Steve was a huge helping us to find a home in the Greenville area. He was there every step of the way and aided us in finding a home that met our rather particular needs, and making contacts that we needed to complete our loans, inspections, and closing. Thanks so much Steve.

Dollie Collins recommends Lochlan Adams


During the selling of my home Lochlan was always available for questions, explanations, or just as support while going through the process. As a travel nurse I was often not available at the home however Lochlan was instrumental in assisting with scheduling of pictures, a pre-listing inspection, and any other needs. Great Homes of the Upstate and Lochlan Adams made selling my home an easy stress free process. I would recommend this office and this realtor for any of your real estate needs.

Matt OSWALD recommends Mitch Foster

Home Owner

Mitch was the right guy for us. He is passionate about finding the right home. We were under pressure with our situation but Mitch has a cool head. We found our dream home and we are so happy with our realtor. We tailgated with the sellers and our agent after closing. I never heard of such a thing but Mitch brought the right people together. Thanks Mitch for this great experience and for finding the right home for our family.

Mark Durrett recommends Landen Hamrick

We were looking for a small condo in downtown Greenville to serve as our urban oasis alternative home. We came is with very little knowledge of the area, a limited budget and a long list of requirements. And -- on top of that -- we were based 4.5 hrs away. Finally, we were not in a hurry. Landen helped educate us on the area and was extremely helpful in identifying properties as they came on the market. He often shared video recordings of his walking a property and pointing out features and pitfalls. Over the course of 9 months, he worked patiently with us until we finally settled on a home earlier this year. We are thrilled with the condo, with Greenville, and with the process that Landen helped manage for us. We highly recommend Landen.

Diana Herald recommends Kelly Shealy

My husband and I were looking for a house while living in Massachusetts when we met Kelly we loved him. He spent so much time with us answering our many questions with patience, all the while being so courteous and thorough with his answers. While working with us he always made us feel like we are his priority, our two sons loved being around him too. He is the one who found the house we bought and he went to great lengths to make sure we have all we need. Even after the purchase of our new house Kelly was helping us. The previous owners failed to leave, the garage door openers Kelly went out of his way to special ordered them for us and personally made sure that they worked and that’s just one example!

Barbara Stone recommends Justin Shinko

Justin was the consummate professional and he helped us every step of the way with a very complicated move from Boston to Greenville. When we came to look at properties, Justin took a great deal of his time to show us the area and gave us great insights. He was always incredibly upbeat, patient and respectful. Justin handled every issue that came up with the purchase of our home very efficiently. He came to our rescue and negotiated with our seller's realtor which was greatly appreciated. To sum it up, I would not hesitate to recommend Justin to any of my friends who are looking for a great realtor!

Justin was such a great realtor for us! As first time sellers with no clue where to start, Justin explained the entire process to us and calmed our nerves. He’s truly a realtor that becomes your friend. He even offered to help us buy our new home before we could even ask! Buying or selling, Justin will be our go-to guy!

Ross Hilton recommends Justin Shinko

Justin made our homebuying process from Atlanta to Greenville as smooth as possible. From identifying an initial set of homes, to setting up showings and offering on a house, to coordinating a quick close, Justin helped us every step of the way and communicated clearly where we were in the process.

I highly recommend Justin and we will be happy to refer him and/or leverage his skills again in the future!

Rachel Averell recommends Justin Shinko

Justin was incredible through every step of the way. He was always available when I needed him and went above and beyond to make sure I found my dream home. As a first time home buyer with little to no knowledge of anything, I was so grateful he was able to explain everything to me in a way so could understand. He is excellent at his job and he truly cares about your personal experience.
