Brian was excellent to worth with in SC. He is very professional, organized and has good insight on the positives and negatives of each home. We have decided not to buy in Charleston at this time, but Brian would be the first person we would call when we are ready to buy.

We had found the house ourselves in a city magazine real estate section. We called the number listed and Brian called back in a matter of a few minutes. Within a few hours he had arranged a day and time for us to view the house. When we met him several days later he knew the area and details of the house. He offered good advice and suggestions. He contacted us several times by email after we returned home and sent us details about other listings in our price range and area we desired. Brian was always helpful, courteous and willing to answer questions. This was a small listing for him. But he treated us as if we were buying a million dollar house. When we did decide to buy he was with us every step of the way and helped to make the home buying process, from several states away, as easy as possible. Less ... More

I enjoyed working with Brian, and I can not imagine what it would have been like without him as my agent. Buying my first home was a frustrating process at times, but Brian was the one important factor that made my life easier throughout the entire process. He was extremely helpful and always answered my calls and my texts. He also was very honest and his opinions were appreciated and helpful. Great guy and was always personable and friendly. I highly recommend Brian Walsh to anyone looking to buy a home. Less ... More

Brian did a five-star job for us in the purchase of a new home in downtown Charleston. Brian was amazingly responsive and knowledgable. Since we are not locals, I counted on his expertise for referrals to lenders and lawyers. I would highly recommend Brian!

My wife and I found Brian well before we had any real knowledge of Charleston or the benefits/disadvantages of buying in any of its neighborhoods. After many viewings, spanning the better part of a year, Brian showed us the city and taught us what to expect in the areas we were looking to buy. Over that time, we got to know Brian and came discover than in addition to being a hard working professional who really has a mind for this business, he is also a genuinely good person who was as eager to see us move from our shoebox extended stay hotel room as we were. Nothing speaks as loud as results, however. Last month, we moved into our dream home, outside of the area we had initially been so insistent upon. Without Brian?s patience, positivity and the sound council he provided during negotiation when it really counted, I can honestly say that we might not be enjoying this incredible home. Less ... More

Brian was very responsive to our needs. He offered suggestions as needed, but was not pushy. The mls listings he provided were excellent and we were able to narrow our searching without unnecessarily driving to homes we were not interested in.

Met Brian online for our retirement home purchase and relocation. He helped us narrow our search and provided valuable insight on areas and localities that fit our demographics and desires. He is to be commended for his Charleston knowledge and expertise. He thinks out of the box and his calm organized approach fit us perfectly. He is not adverse to suggestions and accommodated us in every respect. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody - young or old as he is professional in all respects and relates well. A pleasure to work with. Less ... More

A real estate licensee myself, I can't speak highly enough about Brian's professional expertise for anyone with real estate needs. Thanks to his local knowledge and experience, savvy competence, and skillful communication, I was able to make a totally informed decision about a purchase as an out of area buyer. I can't thank him enough for the priority and effort he afforded me, especially given the accelerated pace of my needs. I admire Brian's integrity and energy and would not hesitate to recommend him to to anyone! Less ... More

Brian has helped me to both buy and sell a home. What I really appreciate is his communication. The ability to talk through all my options helped me understand all aspects and financials of the situation. His professionalism is second to none. What I learned throughout this experience, is that a great realtor can make the difference, Brian did this for me!

Working with Brian has been a pleasure. My wife and I are relocating to the Charleston area for retirement. We are somewhat familiar with the area and wanted to focus on Mt Pleasant due to its proximity to the beaches as well as downtown Charleston. After contacting several realtors we selected Brian to work with us, because of his responsiveness, knowledge of the area and professional approach to the process. Brian picked up on our ideas and taste in homes very quickly and we determined that what we wanted was not available on the market, so we shifted our attention to building lots. Upon making a visit to Charleston Brian identified several lots to look at and we found just what we wanted ( close in town, water views and a quiet, well established neighborhood). Brian connected us with a local attorney and we closed on the property in about a month from having identified it! He also connected us with a builder and we are now moving forward with the home design. We couldn't be happier and highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for a home in Charleston. Less ... More

Brian worked with us for over a year until we found just the right house. House hunting from out of state presented some challenges, but Brian facilitated our additional needs, questions, recommendations, etc. with professionalism and prompt responses, answers and referrals. He was most accommodating with appointments, and helping with negotiations and closing arrangements. It was a pleasure to discover the housing market of Charleston with Brian.

After we dropped our youngest son off at college, my wife and I visited three cities ? Charleston, Savannah, and Wilmington ? to decide where to relocate. We met real estate agents in each city and they took us into a few homes. This was our first visit, and our goal was modest: to eliminate one or two of the cities from consideration. We would then look more closely at neighborhoods and homes on subsequent visits. Brian Walsh spent a day-and-a-half with us and showed us several appealing neighborhoods. We only went inside one home and ? here?s the weird part ? we bought it! Our day-and-a-half, plus our visits to the other two cities, sold us on Charleston and on the south-of-Broad neighborhood. Brian arranged for the builder to meet us, and he sold us on the house. What we expected would be a six-to-eight month process took less than a month from the day we drove into Charleston until we closed on the house. We had real estate contacts in the other two cities, but we chose Brian based solely on the recommendations (like this one) on Zillow. It was a fortuitous choice. Of the three agents, he was the best fit for our needs. He stood out because he asked pointed questions and he listened to our answers. He took the time to understand our background, our needs, and our goals. He did this while showing us real estate listings and neighborhoods. He helped us to focus on our own priorities and to use them to show us a house which met them better than we could have expected. He acted as a buyer?s agent, and I never had the sense that he was selling us anything ? we sold ourselves. He was the catalyst in the transaction, giving us the market information and perspective that we didn?t have. Ours was a unique situation, and the home we bought was a singular opportunity. But, every home buyer?s situation is unique ? just in different ways ? and all homes are singular in their own fashion. In our case, Brian was very skillful in bringing together the unique with the singular. Less ... More

Brian is excellent realtor! My wife and I highly recommend using her services. He worked with us every step of the way and will work around your schedule which was exactly what we needed. After looking at numerous houses we definitely found the one we can call home. Thanks to Brian our buying process went smooth and quickly. Even after closing on our home he is still actively involved in making sure that any outstanding issues get addressed. We highly recommend his services!

Brian is the perfect kind of real-estate agent. He knows how to help you target what you are looking for, and has a keen sense of when to press the advantage. Unlike many agents, you will never feel like he is only interested in completing the sale. His patience and diligence allows you to move through the process at your own pace but he also knows when to spur you (and your respective "other") on if he feels the opportunity is right and you are ready.

Brian assisted me in purchasing a home in a difficult downtown Charleston. Not only is he very personable, but he listened to what we said and did not waste our time showing us properties that he knew would not interest us. On the other hand, if we found something online ourselves, he was willing to take us to see it even as he cautioned us that it was not really what we were looking for. Brian was always on time, something we really appreciated because we were generally only in town for a couple of days at a time and did not want to waste the time we had. Since we were not living in downtown Charleston, we had to complete all the negotiation and paperwork from a distance. Brian did a wonderful job of orchestrating the process, including being at the property for inspections and for other contractors that were coming to provide estimates for repairs. I can't see why we would ever use anyone else to help us buy or sell a property. Less ... More

Throughout the whole house searching process, Brian was extremely responsive. Whenever we need to see a property, we can always count on him to set up an appointment promptly. And whenever we send him a message with questions, we can always hear back from him within minutes, even during off hours. His in-depth knowledge about the local market was a great value to us, helping us to identify the properties of interests with ease. And best of all, Brian has been extremely patient with us, There was never any pressure from him, whether we buy or not. Brian is one of the few realtors who always has his clients' interest at heart. Less ... More

As a first time home buyer clueless about the home buying process, I was able to rely on Brian's expertise to guide me. From initial contact through closing Brian offered advice/help along each step of the way. It was great to feel like I truly had an advocate and I imagine his other clients can agree. Coupled with Brian's laid back, non-pushy demeanor, he will also gladly point out positives and negatives of a property as he sees them, which is something I really appreciated. Working with Brian made the entire process seem relatively simple and I hands down will recommend him to other home buyers. Less ... More

I truly believe we wouldn't have purchased a condo in Charleston without Brian. We're 600 miles away and had been looking, bid, lost, frustrated by the lack of properties in our location and price, consulting other agents. He simply wouldn't let us quit, regularly reminding us the right place was out there. Finding a place to buy is well within the expertise of many brokers and agents. Brian goes so far beyond that service. He kept at it, providing added market information, access to associated professionals and simply being there, physically, when we weren't. Brian doesn't just have a job selling houses; he enables the creation of homes. Less ... More

Update 5/26/2015: I just bought a second property and Brian was once again my agent. As anticipated, his help was both exemplary and indispensable. This was a difficult transaction with multiple legal issues on the seller's side. Brian was always immediately available and made the calls needed to get things moving. In one instance I asked him to follow up with the seller after a long period of no progress. Less than 10 minutes later there was an email from the seller with all the information my attorney was looking for. Speaking of which, I found that the only person I could consistently count on was Brian-- and that includes my attorney. He continues to have my unequivocal endorsement. Original Review: Brian has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He understood our requirements and presented us with homes that met our needs. He communicated effectively via telephone, email and text message. As our deal progressed it was not uncommon to receive text messages on the weekend and late evenings. As details developed we were immediately informed. I cannot speak highly enough of Brian. Not only was his service prior to and during our purchase unequivocally stellar, but he continues to be an indispensable asset after the closing. I can wholeheartedly recommend Brian without hesitation. Less ... More

Brian Walsh is an EXCELLENT REALTOR ! We just purchased a 2nd home in Charleston and we were lucky to have Brian as our realtor. Prior to finding Brian, we tried to work with 2 other realtors which were no help what so ever ! Brian would answer questions we had and always returned our calls in a timely manner. He is very professional and knows his job well. When you live out of state and don't know who to contact for your renovation project, it's good to know I could pick up the phone and ask Brian for help. He was kind enough to give me a list of contractors, electricans, plumbers etc. to assist in our renovation process. He truely is a realtor who is there for you not only thru the purchase but even after the loan has closed. We strongly recommend Brian Walsh for all your home purchase needs. Thank you Brian for all your help, YOU ARE AWESOME ! The Harb family from Knoxville, TN Less ... More

As a liaison for my parents, I relied heavily on Brian for advice and direction throughout the process. Brian was honest and forthcoming in his assessment of the market, location, and value of every listing viewed. Brian made himself available at all times, coordinating showings around my schedule, as well as answering phone calls and emails after hours.

My husband and I live out of state, and we worked with Brian Walsh over a period of several months to find the perfect second home in Mt Pleasant. From our first telephone conversation with Brian, we were confident that we had found a representative who was responsive, who understood our criteria for a home, who was fully knowledgeable of the area, and who was first and foremost professional in business conduct and communication. We never doubted that Brian put our best interest first. In fact, when we would inquire about a property that looked interesting, he would answer all our questions, but he did not hesitate to tell us when he thought a property or location pwould not meet our needs. With his help, we found the home we wanted and from the time we signed a contract to closing, Brian never failed to be available to us for anything we might need. He is the only realtor I am aware of that would answer or immediately return calls at 9:30 pm on Sunday night. He has a solid network of resources within the community and assisted us, long distance, with all aspects of contract to closing. I would recommend Brian without hesitation, and when we are ready to sell or buy another home in the Charleston area, Brian will be our first phone call! Less ... More

Brian is exactly what you want in a realtor. Highly knowledgeable, who knows the ins and outs of the entire process to include mortgage and closing. What most stood out to me was Brian's availability and how quickly he or his staff returned calls, texts, or emails. He is always there for you and you will never feel you could have got an offer in sooner if only your realtor would just call you back or answer your emails. I will use Brian again not only to buy but also to sell any real estate. He has my highest possible recommendation. Do yourself a favor and call Brian. Less ... More

We recently moved to downtown Charleston south of broad and months before our move I started working with Brian. He kept us up to date with the houses south of broad by updating us every day with any houses new on the market, price changes, and sold properties. Being so far away and not wanting to miss out on our perfect home Brian suggested doing a showing for us via Face Time. How many agents do you know that will do that. We are so glad that we came across Brian and even though it took us MONTHS to pick the right house. He kept the updates coming our way. Once we picked the one we wanted he went above and beyond to make sure we got the best deal as home in this particular location are very expensive. He was always just a phone call away through out the entire process along with his key knowledge we couldn't ask for a better agent. If we ever decide to purchase another home or know anyone looking we will be sure to use Brian and pass his information along to everyone!!! Less ... More

Brian was willing to go the extra mile for helping me find the exact place I was looking for. He is patient and listens to every word you say when narrowing down possible homes. He takes the time to get to know you and can tell by your reaction if it is just the right place or not. Looking for a place in Mount Pleasant from another state, I was worried that I would not be able to find anything. When I did get to Mount Pleasant to look around Brian took the time to take me around several places. On my following trips to Mount Pleasant, Brian had selected many places that had fit my criteria. I had a tough choice and ultimately made what I feel to be the best decision for me. I strongly recommend Brian Walsh to anyone looking to buy in Mount Pleasant, SC. Less ... More

This was our first home purchase, and to be honest, I had no idea what I was doing. I requested information about a listing, and Brian responded within a few minutes. He called me on the phone and was very friendly and set us up with an appointment to view the home the next day. He was always available to answer any questions we had at just about any time of day. He is very professional and will go out of his way to make sure you are happy with everything. We even had to deal with another agent (the seller's agent) who was your textbook example of a worthless unprofessional agent that has no business in the housing market. Brian was able to keep us calm and somehow manage to deal with this clown to get us closed. He started as my Realtor and has now become a good friend. Thanks again for everything Brian! Less ... More

My husband and I feel very lucky that, by chance, Brian became our agent in our Charleston house search. He is knowledgeable, polite and - best of all - endlessly patient. He guided our search but never, ever pressured us. He quickly appreciated what we were looking for and always had good possibilities to view. He was a pleasure to spend time with and was very patient as we, his finicky clients, searched for, found and successfully negotiated for a lovely property.
