Many buyers in the Charleston SC area look at James Island because they love the beach. With both easy access to Folly Island and Downtown Charleston, these sell well because they are nestled between these two popular areas.

As the name suggests, it is is an island, and for this reason the relatively small town does not offer too many new homes to choose from. While there have been some small areas that have been infilled with new construction, for the most buyers choose from older properties, and enjoy the features that most established neighborhoods offer like large lots and mature plantings.

At one time the area was not quite as convenient and not quite as popular because there was only one bridge leading to the island. The original access was only a drawbridge over the Intracoastal Waterway that weaves its way up and down the East Coast.

In 1996 the James Island connector was built. This 2.7 mile interstate highway cost 128 million to build and helped make James Island more attractive for aspiring homeowners. The direct route from Downtown Charleston opened up the market to buyers needing to be in the city quickly. Medical University students and their families began to look to the area as an investment while attending MUSC.

Again, the majority are older and the ranches that were built in the early to late 1960’s start in the $200,000 price range and can move up from there based on the lot, as James Island waterfront ranch style homes can be as expensive as $800,000 (and sometimes higher) depending on the neighborhood and views.

While the bulk of the development occurred in the late 60’s and early 1970’s, there were of course many homes built well into the 80’s and 90’s and as mentioned above, small pockets of land open up over time and a few new construction homes are built as lots become available to the market.

There are many available for sale in and around the water also. Due to the fact that it is an island and there are several creeks that weave their way in and around the perimeter, this area surprisingly offers more waterfront opportunities than the neighboring (and much larger) West Ashley section of town.

Nat Wallen’s marketing campaign sells homes.

Thank You Charleston!

"I did not know there was a contest, so when Charleston City Paper readers voted me as their favorite Realtor, it was really nice. Charleston is a beautiful place, but the people here are what make living here so great!" - Nat Wallen

The Carolina One™ Sign

Every aspect of what makes a sale successful has been carefully dissected for your benefit. Even down to what colors are most memorable and recognizable together on the Carolina One Real Estate sign.

Drone Photography

Luxury properties and large tracts of land need to be viewed from a different perspective to attract a buyer. Standing out to buyers on the web is critical, and drones can make that happen in the right situation.

Luxury Portfolio Program

Carolina One sells more homes over $1,000,000 than any other company in Charleston. Our Luxury Portfolio Program includes high quality peripherals, professional photography and an international marketing reach including the Wall Street Journal, Luxuryhomes.com and our Luxury Homes magazine.

Coming Soon Program

With nearly 1000 agents, I will share your homes as a "coming soon" offering in our private Facebook group. Your home will be exposed to all of the buyers Carolina One agents are working with and will sell your home faster, and for more money... and this may even happen before it is placed on the market.

A Secure Lockbox

The latest technology is utilized to ensure your home is easily accessible and completely secure. You can rest assured that your home will only be accessed by licensed SC Realtors, on your time frame, and on your specific terms.

Showing Appointments

Handling the day-to-day showing appointments is an integral part of the sales process. Nat is able to efficiently arrange showings designed to follow the guidelines that you determine.

High-Quality Photography

Quality photography plays an important role in attracting a buyer for your home. By taking the time to determine the best angle, time of day and what photos to include in your marketing campaign, Nat’s photography speaks volumes.

A Professional Description

Careful attention to details will ensure your home is described and presented in the best light possible. By describing your home accurately and positively, Nat will work with YOU as the seller to craft the best feature and benefit list possible.

Carolina One™ Marketing

Your home sale will benefit with the Carolina One team at work. Through a variety of different mediums, the fully staffed marketing department works to expose your home to all buyers coming into the Charleston area.

The Caravan Tour

Nat Wallen will arrange a Carolina One agent tour of your home. Agents will become familiar with what your home offers by seeing it in person, and can share this information with their clients. In addition, agent feedback provides insightful opinions on the asking price and what will aid in the process.

The “Now Showing” System

Using Carolina One’s exclusive “Now Showing System,” Nat will proactively contact agents currently looking for a home like yours. This proprietary software system will locate agents currently working with buyers that fit the price range and area for your home.

Multiple Listing Service

Nat Wallen takes great care to provide an engaging description and high-quality photography to share your home’s features with all Charleston area buyers.

Buyer E-mail Notifications

With Nat’s knowledge of how to push the MLS features to their full capabilities, each day as buyers come into the market looking for a home like yours, they will receive an e-mail from their agent letting them know it is for sale and ready to be shown.
