David Kent opened Charleston’s first exclusive buyer’s agency, The Real Buyer’s Agent, in 1995, with his business partner W.C. “Cece” Stricklin. This was a relatively new approach to the real estate business. Instead of acting as dual agents as most traditional agencies, The Real Buyer’s Agent only represents home buyers. David and his team of Mount Pleasant and Charleston buyer’s agents’ focus on one basic objective: finding and negotiating on the property that fits you best. It doesn’t matter which company has listed the property, or if the owner is selling it themselves; we will show it to you and help negotiate the optimal price and terms. David works with buyers in the Tri-County Area (Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley) and has become an efficient and expert agent in helping families relocate to the greater Charleston area.
A graduate of Clemson University, with a B.S. in Building Science and Construction Management, David has worked on many land development projects before starting The Real Buyer’s Agent. This background gives him a unique set of skills, knowledge, and expertise that he brings to the table when working with his clients. For over a decade, David and his team of buyer agents in Charleston and Mount Pleasant have consistently provided clients with fervent representation and superior service.
