She is incredibly responsive and is able to close deals in a win/win manner. I've used Donna as both a buyer and seller and am completely comfortable with her representing me with my best interests in mind


Amy listed our home when we were relocated for work.

She was a rock for us during a very stressful time in our lives. She was knowledgeable, responsive, and honest. I highly recommend Amy if you’re looking for a realtor!


Amy was amazing.

It was my first time buying a home and she was there for me every step of the way to make sure I understood everything that was going on and making sure I was comfortable. I would recommend Amy to anybody. She is great!!!


Donna is fantastic.

She went above and beyond to make the buying process an easy experience. Donna is very passionate about providing the best service and making her clients happy. Being born and raised in the Greater Charleston Area gives Donna a distinct advantage with the local market knowledge and neighborhood expertise. I highly recommend Donna for any real estate needs.

Donna was continually providing me with new listings as they became available because we knew we would need to move quickly if the right property became available.

She was very accommodating with taking me to look at properties and worked to be sure the deal went through.


"Troy is probably one of the most professional people I have worked with.

When you first start out to buy a home you'll receive about a million messages from realtor that are just interested in locking you in as a way to pay bills. Troy took my suggestions to heart and searched through properties rather than just generating MLS notifications. He was incredibly helpful and professional. If I ever buy another home I will be asking his assistance once again! Highly recommended."

Elizabeth Shirley goes above and beyond her job.

She is not just a real Estate professional but someone who really cares and is there for you every step of the way. I still stay in touch with her long after we purchased our home. She is a true gem.

L. Hayes

I can honestly say Elizabeth is the very best of the best.

We've bought and sold houses before, but never with an agent so talented, so knowledgeable, so hard working and so willing to go the extra mile, or TEN extra miles, to get things done. She was excellent on communication, helping us know what to expect, walking us through complicated processes, advocating for us, helping us with managing repairs, staging, you name it, she did it. She was there every step of the way, even helping us pack boxes. It's not possible to put into words how much we appreciate what Elizabeth did for us, and I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone selling their home.

"Troy was amazing to work with.

Professional, attentive and responsive. He was able to get me exactly what I wanted on the property I listed. Full price offer within a week of listing". Thanks Troy!

Lacy Thompson

Donna was always available - evenings, weekends, even Sundays.

She was relentless in her efforts to help us find our perfect vacation home. It took us a much longer time than we anticipated, and we really appreciated all the time and effort Donna put in with us.


Donna was very patient with us since we couldn't decide on what we wanted.

It was a very slow process for us, and she was willing to go the extra mile over and over again!

Vicki K

She was very alert to our needs.

Showed us enough properties that we were able to understand local pricing. Found out such nuances of our homeowners association such as if we were connected to the community lawn watering system. After eighteen months of ownership, she still had the information we needed for our association when they tried to give us different information. She is very thorough, professional and a very nice person! I consider her a friend as well as a Realtor.

B. Bowden

Although we ended up not moving, Donna was wonderful.

She was extremely knoweldgeable of the Charleston area and real estate market. Delightful to work with and very responsive. We will definitely use her when we make a decision to move.


"In buying my first house I cannot begin to explain how effortless the process has been.

Troy made the entire process go very smooth and very quickly. If I ever had a question he would answer the phone day or night even late into the evening. He put me in touch with very good professional people for the closing and the mortgage. I cannot put into words how easy the process has been. He had a plan entirely laid out and explained the whole thing to me before we even submitted the offer. He's taken care of everything has never come to me saying I needed to change what I wanted. He went to get exactly what I wanted".

Joe Boros

Liz Shirley was simply the best.

She is everything you want in a real estate agent - knowledgeable, attentive, forward thinking, pleasant, tenacious, connected - you name it, Liz has it. Liz was our agent for our recent IOP oceanfront condo purchase. She will undoubtedly be our agent when we are ready to sell it and buy our permanent Charleston area home

L. Warren

I selected Donna on a whim when I saw a house I was interested in on Zillow and I'm so incredibly glad I did!

She is fantastic and after a short conversation knew exactly what I was looking for and because of her I found my dream home and she worked diligently with me until I could call it mine. Not only is she extremely personable and professional, she also went above and beyond, keeping me well informed and explaining everything to me as a first time home buyer. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a home and a fantastic new friend!s More

"Intent on moving to the coast, I became acquainted with Troy when looking at a foreclosure.

He was a supportive, polite professional who helped me through buying process even though I lived 250 miles away. Communication was of upmost importance and Troy gave me the information quickly and accurately. Furthermore, Troy has continued to help me with local contractors. I applaud Troy for a job well done. I will contact Troy for future dealings. I highly recommend him."

July 18, 2018 To Whom it May Concern: We are writing this letter in gratitude to Tapp Palmer, who recently acted as our realtor on the purchase of our beautiful new home in Charleston, SC.

My husband Robert and I had the good fortune of meeting Tapp at an Open House he was hosting on Daniel Island. We were not quite ready to purchase a home but had come that day on a “research” expedition”. Tapp enthusiastically explained all the merits of the neighborhood as he showed us the house in detail. His knowledge of the Charleston area was impressive, and he was able to answer dozens of questions we posed about the house. Other visitors came to the Open House while we were there, and we watched him show each of them the same warm welcome as he extended to us. To his credit, Tapp picked up on our keen interest, and the moment the Open House was over, he spontaneously showed us several other properties for sale on Daniel Island, in some cases calling multiple times to get us in to see them at the last minute. In all, Tapp spent over four hours with us that first day, and succeeded in convincing us that this was a place we wanted to live in. His warmth, enthusiasm, quick responsiveness and intellect set him apart from many of the realtors we had previously met. His knowledge of both the commercial and residential real estate markets was outstanding. Tapp distinguished himself the most, however, when it came time to help us with our offer. Our budget unfortunately fell short of the asking price, and we were concerned that we would not be considered, but Tapp spoke at length with the Seller and convinced him that ours was the best offer they would likely see. He advocated so effectively on our behalf, that our original offer was accepted within 48 hours. We were thrilled! Tapp is a person of warmth, integrity, and commitment to the higher good. We were impressed to hear that he donates a percentage of his realty commissions to MUSC Children’s Hospital, and we were touched by how genuinely happy he was for us on our Closing Day, even giving us an unsolicited gift of a one-year Homeowners Insurance Policy! We feel lucky to have found him, and we recommend Tapp Palmer with the utmost confidence and enthusiasm. Sincerely, Robert Barone, MD Carla Barone, Esq.

My wife and I were very impressed with Amy.

Over the years we have bought or sold 10 properties and she has been by far the best realtor we have had for the following reasons: Amy was always available, very efficient, had very helpful ideas for making our condo more sellable, knew what buyers were looking for and went above and beyond what most realtors would do. Since we were selling our condo long distance Amy made countless trips to the property in order to check on things. We would certainly recommend Amy to anyone who is buying or selling a property!!


Troy helped me rent out a home, is working with me as buyers agent and has given me invaluable advice regarding potential sale of another house.

He is excellent. He looks at the big picture, not just the immediate sale/gain. He is a strong advocate for his clients best long term interests. He is very accessible and responsive.
