100 Closings – Year To Date…

CanterburyStratfordIt kinda snuck up on me this year, but last Thursday we closed on our 100th transaction side of 2014. To be sure, 100 sales is a fun benchmark for three salespeople and a team manager. In short… THANK YOU, COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA!!!

Per the homes recorded in our local MLS, our 99th sale was one side of 2841 Stratford Rd, #100 was the other side of the same house (we had the buyer and seller of this transaction), and #101 was 2519 Canterbury Road, respectively. Interestingly, both homes are in Forest Hills – 29204. Both closings were on July 31.

Two years ago we hit 100 closings by the end of August. It was a proud accomplishment for our team, so we decided to celebrate accordingly with an appreciation party. As many of you know, for the last two years we’ve rented out The Oyster Bar for a “100 Thank Yous!!” event.

Why did “100” sneak up on me this year? Why aren’t we throwing the party? Well, Amanda is scheduled to be at the hospital Thursday morning at 6AM to have her third child. How’s that for an answer?! God willing,  Amanda will bring home a healthy baby James in a few days. We can think about The Oyster Bar when she’s ready.

Amanda, Elizabeth, Amy, and I would like to thank every friend, client, referral source, mortgage originator, closing attorney, closing paralegal, insurance agent, painter, contractor, carpenter, roofer, termite professional, warranty claim pro, Coldwell Banker office admin, and on and on who has helped make this happen.

This all said,  if you or anyone you know is interested in buying or selling real estate, or would like to know the current value of their home, please call 803-447-8683 or email fjones@cbunited.com.

Thank you!

    2841 – a blight on the Forest Hills neighborhood. It was a tear down of a very tired house that was replaced with a generic design – one of the only houses in the neighborhood with a garage front and center. This disregard of context is why so many neighborhoods sought historic preservation restrictions. Would it have been so difficult to be a little more sympathetic to the architectural character of the neighborhood? Congrats on selling it though.
