I'm Gene Kizer,
Broker-in-Charge. I've been on James Island 50
years. I specialize in helping buyers and sellers on
James Island, Johns Island, Folly Beach, Downtown, West Ashley, Mt.
Pleasant and surrounding areas. I also have an
excellent program for FSBO sellers. If you are selling your home
yourself, let me help you by putting your property in the Realtor
MLS for six months where you will receive massive exposure. The cost
is only $189, plus another $189 out of proceeds at closing IF you sell.
If you don't sell, you DO NOT OWE the second $189. You can
renew for another six months for only $49. This is a GREAT
program and it works!

feeds - and you will find your house all over the real estate
Internet, exposed to millions of

magna cum laude
College of Charleston
in 2000 at middle age with
History Departmental Honors and the Outstanding Student Award for the
History Department. I love Charleston history and mostly studied it and
the causes of the War Between the States. My bachelor's essay for History
Departmental Honors was entitled 'Economic Arguments and Justifications for
Southern Secession, 1850s to 1861,' and it's catalogued in the College of
Charleston Addlestone Library, Special Collections.

It was directed by
nationally renowned professor,
Clark G. Reynolds. I made an A++ (two plusses) on it.
"I started at
Carolina One in 2005 and worked there until 2009 when I founded Charleston
Saltwater Realty. We have a good, stable real estate market here in
Charleston that is not subject to the wild fluctuations we've seen in
other markets, and we've turned the corner! Our market is better today
than it has been in years. There is a better balance between supply and demand, which means we're ebbing from the buyer's market
we've been in. We're a normal market inching toward being a seller's
"As a writer,
I am PROUD of all the other writers and artists in Charleston! Many people
don't know but William Gilmore Simms, who lived in the Lowcountry and is
Magnolia Cemetery, was called the best American writer of the
19th century by
Edgar Allan Poe. Among Simms's 82 book-length works, he
wrote a series of Revolutionary War novels set mostly around Charleston,
and they are historically accurate and make the Revolution JUMP off the
pages as if you are there in 1776!
Southerners in the War Between the States were the children and
grandchildren of the Southerners who played a HUGE role in winning the
American Revolution since the brilliant American victory in the
Cowpens, South Carolina in 1781 is widely considered the turning point of
the Revolutionary War.
historian, I am also PROUD that Charleston, in the 1920s, was the
first city in America to aggressively promote
historic preservation, and we have been a
preservation leader ever since. Right now, the College of Charleston
the only undergraduate degree program in the country in historic
preservation; and in the Graduate School of the
College of Charleston, one can earn a
Master of Science in Historic Preservation,
which is part of a joint program with Clemson University. The program is based here in Charleston."
