David Kent | Charleston’s First Exclusive Home Buyer’s Agent

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.

Since David and his team specialize in the buying process he has a vested interest in representing his client’s best interests. Of all the hundreds of real estate companies in the Charleston area, the Real Buyer’s Agent is the only exclusive buyer’s agency, consistently bringing home buyers unmatched service, support, and loyalty.

David and his team of Mount Pleasant based 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; David will show it to you and help negotiate the optimal price and terms. Whether you’re relocating from out of the area, buying your first house, ready to move into something bigger, or are ready for the prefect retirement home; David is here to help!

David went above and beyond as my realtor to find me my first home. He makes you feel like family and really has your best interest in mind. He explains everything to you, is always available, and goes the extra mile to make this journey something special and memorable. He never pressured me into buying a home and was patient and encouraging that I would find the right one. He is my go to realtor and I could not say enough positive things about this man and his team! Highly recommend working with him for your home buying needs.

We had a fantastic experience using David to help us buy our first home. We went into his office, having already met with other agents and right out of the gate the experience with David was far superior.

David took the time to help explain every step of the process to us, sometimes a few times, and even gave us a book that helped us along the way.

We never felt pressured to buy, and David was by our side every step of the way to ensure we knew what we would be getting ourselves into on certain houses or just explain what certain features would mean for us.

Having never done the whole home buying thing before it was great to have David recommend to us people to use like lawyers that would be low cost and easy to work with, someone to do our inspection, and a list of companies that offer home warranties to choose from. He even helped us rate shop when it came to mortgage and insurance.

David and his entire office staff were always there for us to view a home whenever the opportunity arose, even very last minute. In the end, we found the perfect home, at a perfect price (thanks to David), and I am confident that using David saved us a lot of money. We definitely highly recommend David to anyone looking to buy a home!
