About Gregg

Originally from Kentucky, I moved to Charleston in 1998 where I worked in the Mortgage Banking business and rental Real Estate. Before retirement I was Charleston's premiere Real Estate Auctioneer operating through Charleston's largest residential Real Estate company. As a lifelong adventurer I have piloted my own plane to many an exotic destination, sailed up and down the Atlantic, and traversed the country to and fro. I have found the many opportunities the low country offers to fulfill my adventurous needs including sailing, paragliding, offshore fishing and the list goes on. As a grandparent I enjoy sharing this area and all its natural beauty with visiting family and friends.

Gregg purchased this house in 1998

Why Gregg chose Charleston

I own and manage rentals in various neighborhoods around the Charleston area. Having lived all over Charleston myself, I particularly like this location because of its close proximity to everything I need.

Great location, comfortable, pleasant lodging.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a month in this home, which is well maintained and comfortable. The kitchen is well enough supplied for meal prep; there is a great screened porch overlooking the pond (we saw 15-20 turtles sunning on the bank daily,) and the DISH hopper system for TVs. The landlord is very accommodating, and wants to provide his tenants a good experience. Downtown C'ston is only 15 minutes, and Folly beach is a shorter drive. Great central location and lots of restaurants close by, too. We felt totally safe in this neighborhood, and will stay here again next time we come to Charleston.

It is was clean, quiet and conveniently located. Could be better equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Overall ok. Need more mirrors and better lighting. Good cable options. Seating in living room was good. Need more kitchen equipment. Basics would be nice. Also, asking us to strip beds and start laundry wasn’t a big deal but never had to do this at any other site.

Gregg is a very welcoming and accommodating host. This property is located not too far from downtown, nearby attractions, the beach, etc. Several excellent restaurants are nearby. The house is in a quiet neighborhood andand a view of the turtle pond behind the house can be enjoyed from the patio. A great value for the money, we would stay here again and highly recommend it to others!

A Wedding trip to Charleston

  • 5 of 5

The location and conditions of the home were great. The kitchen was well stocked and the linens and towels were provided which made traveling much easier.

The owner was easy to work with, when needed. Our family and guests were also pleased with the accommodations. What a great place to stay while enjoying our son's wedding celebration !

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The house, located in a quiet neighborhood of single family homes and within easy driving distance of Charleston and Folly Beach, was the perfect home-away-from-home during a recent visit to James Is. For longer side trips, the house is well positioned (near Rt. 30) for easy access to major highways leading to Savannah and the Ashley R. plantations, for example. The house is clean and well-furnished, with comfortable beds and a well-equipped kitchen. Although it was still too chilly to enjoy the screened-in porch, there is a lovely view of a pond attractive to birds and turtles. Off-street parking is available, always a plus...Gregg was a pleasure to work with; he responded immediately to e-mails, clearly explained his expectations of guests, provided valuable information about the area, and was available during our stay to address any issues that might arise. (Speaking of which - pay close attention to the e-mail that he sends just before your arrival. It contains vital information about how to turn off the burglar alarm when you first enter the house.) We especially appreciated his attaching Harris Teeter cards to the house key rings, so that we could take advantage of savings at the nearby grocery store. So, then, in my opinion, don't hesitate to rent this property.

Owner's Response: Wow, you guys are so kind. Thanks for the positive feedback and such kind words. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Traveling with a group to an unfamiliar place is stressful enough without having to worry about your accommodations. We strive to provide a nice comfortable place of refuge. Having all that fun is taxing enough so you should be able to simply come home and rest up for the next day. Please do come back. Gregg
