Lee Keadle

charleston real estate agent

I grew up in Clinton, South Carolina, a small town located northwest of Columbia. I moved to Charleston in 1998 to attend the College of Charleston, where I earned a B.S. in Business Administration. I have lived in Downtown Charleston, West Ashley, Goose Creek, and Johns Island. I now live on James Island.

After taking several real estate courses at the College of Charleston, I began my career with Carolina One Real Estate in 2003 (which was then Prudential). I chose to work for this company because it was by far the leading real estate company in Charleston, and it had a strong reputation that set it apart. When it comes to my clients, I tend to look at homes from an investment standpoint and bring a perspective to help my folks balance the pros and cons of homes. I will happily talk buyers out of homes due to future resale potential or red flags. I want to help my clients make sound real estate purchases, and I know that when it comes time for them to sell the home years later, I’m going to be the real estate agent they call because they trust me and feel good about the investment they’ve made. At this point in my career, almost all of my clients have worked with me previously, or it’s a friend or family member of a past client. These recommendations mean a lot to me, and I love it when I start working with one set of clients and then get to help their parents, children, siblings, or friends. When I’m not working, I try to spend as much time as possible with our two daughters. I also love being out on the water, camping, and helping with my family's farm in the upstate.

Katherine Keadle

charleston sc realtor

I was born and raised in Charleston, West Virginia, but I moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, when I was in high school. I relocated to Charleston, South Carolina, where I earned a B.S. in Psychology at the College of Charleston. I met Lee in college, and we were married in the summer of 2003. I began working for a law firm where I was a real estate paralegal for four and a half years. I have always had a great interest in and appreciation for real estate, which comes from my father, who is an investor. Over the years, Lee and I have bought several investment properties in Charleston, and we enjoy working with fellow investors, too. I also have a passion for teaching, which I've discovered is useful for guiding buyers and sellers in the real estate process.

As Lee's career with Carolina One grew rapidly, we decided that we would make a good team with our combined knowledge of the area and closing expertise. I became a real estate agent for Carolina One Real Estate in the spring of 2005. I am very thankful to have a job that I love and to be able to work with my best friend.

Mary Glenn Keadle

team manager for the keadle group

Growing up in the small town of Clinton, South Carolina, I loved to visit Charleston as often as possible. Charleston offered such a range of things to do that I always hoped I could make my way down to the Low Country and live in such a beautiful and historic waterfront city. After graduating from Clemson University with a B.S. in Psychology, I moved to Charleston and earned an M.A. in English through a joint program at the College of Charleston and The Citadel.

Sixteen years ago, I began working for Lee and Katherine as their assistant. I eventually got my real estate license so that I could manage our growing team of agents and get more involved in helping our clients to buy and sell homes. I also spend a great deal of time managing our website. At this point, I've been at the Keadle Group long enough to work with previous clients returning to us to move up or buy an investment property - which is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. In my free time, I love to take my son and twin girls to the aquarium, wander the streets of Downtown, visit historic sites, go for a run along the marsh, and eat at the amazing restaurants Charleston has to offer!

Catherine Laffitte

experienced charleston real estate agent

Because of my father’s career in the military, I moved frequently during my childhood. I relocated to Charleston in 1992 and fell in love with the culture and history, but it was the friendliness and warmth of the people that captured my soul.

I spent my first six years in Charleston working in the service industry and transitioned to real estate in 1998. Having seen and lived in many different areas of the country, I take a special interest in helping buyers relocate. However, in my almost two decades of Charleston real estate experience, I’ve also helped many locals buy and sell within the area.

I take pride in providing unparalleled service as well as repeat business for past clients who choose to work with me even years after a transaction. During my real estate career, I’ve worked for several companies such as Prudential, Carolina One, and Brand Name. The Boulevard Company currently holds my license.

Jennifer Pratt

charleston sc realtor

After growing up in New Hampshire, I went to Baylor University in Texas where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Apparel and Interior Design. I backpacked through Europe for a while and then worked in Dallas. Next was supposed to be a 6 month adventure in St. Thomas, USVI which turned into 17 years! I got married, had my amazing daughter Sammy, and owned 2 businesses there including a high end teak furniture company with 2 locations in the US Virgin Islands. I loved helping to design beautiful interiors in the Caribbean style, and I wasn't sure that I could ever find a job I enjoyed more.

However, relocating to Charleston with Sammy and launching my real estate career has been more rewarding than I could have ever imagined. I love the connections I make with people, especially those relocating to Charleston just like I did years ago. New construction and investment properties are big passions of mine as well as finding the perfect pre-owned homes! I love keeping up with past clients and seeing how they personalize their new home after moving in. Gratitude and staying positive are some of my main mantras, and I think these attitudes resonate with my clients looking for warmth and genuine care from a Realtor who can guide them through a process that can take many months. I love the relationships I build through my job. On weekends when I'm not working, Sammy and I explore campsites throughout the southeast in our RV. I also love teaching morning spin classes and going to the beach! My license is currently with eXp Realty.

Casie Benton

top realtors charleston sc

I am a lifelong Charlestonian with deep ties to real estate. From a very young age, I have always loved real estate and knew it was what I wanted to do in my career. As a child, I would even show houses with a family friend who was a top producing agent. As the daughter of a real estate investor, I moved 21 times on James Island before I even went to college! I graduated from James Island High School and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and a minor in Psychology from Charleston Southern University. Following graduation, I immediately earned my real estate license and began working for Carolina One Real Estate (which was then Prudential). At that time, I also married my sweetheart, Ryan, who graduated from The Citadel. It is hard to believe that I have now been a real estate agent for over 15 years and I still absolutely love what I do. My passion and desire is to serve others through real estate and build lifelong relationships. I am incredibly blessed to work in a field that I love, with wonderful people, and in a fantastic market like Charleston.

I currently live in Mt. Pleasant with my husband, two daughters, and our goldendoodle, Tango! We are very involved in our local church, East Cooper Baptist Church, and our daughters' school, Palmetto Christian Academy. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading a good book, and going to the beach.

Thomas Davis

After moving 31 times, I understand the excitement and stress that come with the buying and selling process. As my father’s career changed, so did my front door. Because of my experience, I chose to raise my beautiful daughters in Charleston.

I’ve lived on the Peninsula, James Island, Johns Island, West Ashley, and Mt. Pleasant. I know the best places to buy, the best spot to catch a game, and the best parks to take your kids to escape the crowds— and if you’re lucky, where to find the best shark’s teeth.

Prior to founding Abode Real Estate, I spent 7 years serving the exclusive community on Kiawah Island. Today, I’m humbled to be helping families just like mine find their next Abode. As a 6-year volunteer of the Leukemia Lymphoma society, a portion of all commissions are donated to fight blood cancers.


Lisa Costas

charleston relocation agent

With my heart and soul firmly in the Lowcountry, I bring a depth of knowledge and experience to a wide array of real estate services. Born and raised in Charleston, I graduated from Bishop England High School and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science from the College of Charleston. A certified educator, I taught at elementary schools in Germany, Virginia, and Maryland. For over 20 years, I was a military spouse, and I gained valuable insight and knowledge on a variety of cultures and communities. When I work with clients especially who are relocating to Charleston from other cities around the country, I feel that I can really connect and understand what a move of that scale entails - especially when you add kids to the mix! After several military moves, I returned home to Charleston where much of my family still lives.

The sense of warmth and hospitality that I learned while growing up in the Lowcountry are key trademarks in my work, and I love sharing Charleston’s unique traditions and way of life.

Gray Bailey

charleston sc listing agents

I grew up in Southern Pines, North Carolina. I worked in the garment industry for most of my working life. I was a sales representative for Guy Bailey and Associates, a family owned business that sold names like Cambridge Dry Goods, Cutter and Buck Ladies Wear, and British Khaki. I was very fortunate to be able to travel the southeast for my job, since I met my wife in Charleston while on a business trip. She owned a clothing store, Porgy and Bess, in downtown Charleston. I moved to Charleston in 1997, and we were married in 1999. However, I still had to travel a great deal for my career.

After having our second child, I decided to get into the real estate business so that I could spend more time with my family. I have two children, Mackey and Hannah-Gray, who are now grown. Transitioning over to real estate was one of the best decisions I ever made. I specialize in listing homes and also helping people relocate to the Charleston area.
