Your Charleston, SC Realtors on Technology
Real estate and technology work well together when utilizing the internet for buying or selling a home. The concern for many has been finding a real estate web site that was not 5-10 years behind technology. Technology has always seemed to be light-years ahead of real estate. With the search tools that are available to buyers today, and with the advancement of features that Google has done with search maps, streetview, and the like, you would think that most realtors and real estate websites would have more to offer.
We consider this website to be ahead of the curve, so to speak. As Charleston realtors, we have taken our knowledge of the Charleston area and put it into a format here that you can use and enjoy. Combining this with the latest technology, we have provided a website that will save you hours of searching for and reading information to meet all of your Charleston real estate needs.
Mike Ciucci - Owner
Ever since Mike Ciucci was eight years old, he has been a resident of Charleston, SC. A childhood of playing in the creeks, fishing the local waters, swimming and surfing wasn’t a bad start for someone who was destined to be one of Charleston’s top Realtors®. Even today, when he’s not working, Mike can be found shucking oysters at local oyster roasts or enjoying time with his family on the beaches or downtown on the Peninsula.
Mike attended Bishop England High School on the Peninsula in Downtown Charleston, and then off to college graduating with a Bachelor of Science. He then completed further education in Palm Beach FL where he studied computer science and the Internet with an eye to programming, web design, and Internet marketing. Charleston called Mike back home, post education.
When he is not showing people the beautiful Charleston real estate market, Mike enjoys spending time with his family outdoors. He, his wife Melora, and their two children are often busy boating, fishing, swimming and surfing in the Charleston area.
J. van de Erve
It only makes sense: Buy lowcountry property from a lowcountry expert! J. van de Erve was raised in the Lowcountry, downtown. With plenty of real estate experience, he is committed to a lifelong career in real estate. He is a full time, full service professional in the business of selling homes. When he works for you, he will make it a positive experience for you by answering your questions, listening to your concerns, taking care of the details of the sale, and most importantly, fulfilling all of his responsibilities to you.
He is continuously enhancing his knowledge about the real estate market through education, each client interaction, and through his own life experiences. His job now is to represent you in the sale or purchase of your home, but his ultimate payday comes when you call us again in the future, or refer him to others that he may serve.
Taylor first stepped foot in Charleston while visiting friends in the Spring of 2010. After just a few days touring the city (and falling head-over-heels for its charm, beaches, cobblestone streets, and restaurants), she boarded a plane back home to San Diego with a plan in place to relocate as soon as possible. In less than a year, she packed her car with all her belongings and hit the road back to Charleston without looking back.
Taylor spent previous years as a nurse advocating for her patients and feels that she is able to carry that over into her relationships with her Real Estate clients. The decision to buy or sell (or both at the same time) can be scary and daunting. But it doesn’t have to be! Taylor works with Smith Spencer Real Estate and lives on James Island with her husband, Billy and 3-year-old son, Thomas. She is an active yogi and beach-goer and is constantly on the hunt for good old-fashioned Mexican food!
I was born in North Conway, NH and from there went to college at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. I earned a B.S. degree in apparel and interior design. After backpacking though Europe and living and working in Dallas, I decided to go on an adventure for 6 months and moved to St. Thomas, USVI. Well, 6 months turned into a year which then turned into 17 years! I owned 2 businesses there - one of which was a high end furniture company specializing in teak furniture with 2 locations in the US Virgin Islands. I truly enjoyed working with clients using my design knowledge to create beautiful interiors in the Caribbean style. I met my now ex-husband in the islands, and we had our daughter Samantha there (she is now 9).
After relocating to the Charleston area I was lucky enough to be able to fulfill a lifelong goal of becoming a Realtor and selling beautiful homes here in the low country. I believe that my job as a Realtor is to help my clients find the perfect home for THEM and to make the entire experience enjoyable with the least amount of stress possible. I pride myself on being a great communicator and enjoy guiding my clients through each step of the way so that we all remain on the same page throughout.
When I am not working at my dream job as a Realtor you can find me teaching spin classes, officiating weddings, or selling my own line of jewelry. I also love to go camping, boating, beaching, and exploring with my amazing little girl.
