Client Testimonials

We recently purchased a house in Harbour Watch, that we absolutely love, through Sallie Chester.  Our relationship with Sallie began with a get to know each other phone call where trust was soon established.  We then made the trip from Virginia to South Carolina to meet Sallie in person, and she showed us several lots and houses that weekend, one of which we ended up purchasing.  The purchase took longer than anticipated because it was initially contingent on the sale of our house in VA.  Sallie was extremely patient and responsive to all of our needs throughout the entire process.  Sallie is honest, hardworking and provides excellent customer service.  We highly recommend using her services. Ann and Barry N. ~February 2019
Sallie Chester was everything we could have hoped for in the sale of our house; very knowledgeable with good advice and with such a friendly attitude. I would highly recommend Sallie to anyone who is seriously wanting to sell or buy property on Lake Murray. Shirley and David S. ~February 2019
What a positive experience working with Sallie to sell our lake home!  She was kind, hard working, kept us informed, a problem solver and great person.  I would highly recommend her!! L. Davis ~ Nov, 2018
We started looking around the Lake Murray area in October of 2017 with very little information about the area as far as neighborhoods went. We were referred by a friend to Sallie Chester after starting with another REALTOR. Sallie was very knowledgeable and knew the lake well.  She was professional and absolutely one of the nicest people we’ve been around. After one year of looking, we found the perfect home for us; it was exactly what we wanted. Sallie was never pushy or impatient; she was willing to meet us anytime we needed, usually on a quick notice. What a blessing it was to find her! Thank you Sallie. Keith and Dawn B ~ Nov, 2018
“We enjoyed working with Sallie!  She was fair and honest with us and really knows the area. She has a nice and professional attitude which made the process easy!” Dave and Tamara M ~ Nov, 2018
