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!
We cannot say enough good things about David! Our family moved from Seattle to Charleston and he made what could be extremely stressful process, a lot of fun. We had very little notice to make a trip to to Charleston to look for a house. David was able to work with our schedule to ensure we felt confident and educated that our decision was the right one for us. We decided to build a home and from the very start David was beside us making sure we understood the processes, scheduling and necessary inspections. For the next 5 months while we were 3,000 miles away, David played a huge role in ensuring our house was progressing as planned and helping us overcome any issues to ensure we closed on time.
As a former home builder, David knows what to look for in homes whether they are new builds or existing homes. As we viewed the multiple homes in the area before making our decision, David would walk us through each house and show us his concerns with each house. His attention to detail in the home-building process was something we didn’t expect but greatly appreciated, especially as first time homebuyers.
As a testament to David’s professionalism and dedication, he also provided recommendations for a loan officer, home insurance, and inspectors. Every person he recommended was very professional and provided competitive services. The home inspector caught a major code violation that was missed by both the builder and city inspector. Our builder even commented on what a great realtor he was! David went above and beyond to advocate for our family’s wishes and make sure we weren’t just getting a pretty house, but a home we could envision raising our son in.
As we drove away from closing on the home, my wife commented that if there was one thing we did right it was hiring David and his team. If I had to go back and do this over again, my first and only call would be to David again. If you are relocating to Charleston or already in the area, look no further than David Kent - HE IS THE BEST!
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.
