Jeff Akers, Managing Partner of Akers Ellis & Truluck Real Estate, who helped put the group together said, “Being able to partner with other unique and successful companies increases our ability to attract buyers and sellers.”
“The Key Partners brings highly experienced agents together in an environment where peers share market knowledge and work as teams in providing the best possible experience to our clients. In order to best serve our clients, we find it imperative to reach out to our Key Partners who have specific market knowledge about their core areas in the Charleston market” said Chris Anderson of Places Real Estate.
