TOP REAL ESTATE AGENT IN SOUTH CAROLINA JAN CARLISLE
Jan Carlisle has worked hard to set herself apart from the pack by focusing on an area of real estate a lot of agents won’t take on. Serving the Charlotte, North Carolina Metro area that includes the suburbs of South Carolina, top real estate agent in South Carolina Jan Carlisle has made a name for herself by specializing in luxury rentals and lease to own homes. This is in addition to the large number of buyers she also assists in buying a home. “A lot of realtors don’t like to do rentals and lease to own, but I have developed a niche market doing this and I enjoy relocation rentals and lease to own,” says Carlisle. “If no one’s doing rentals, and no one wants to do lease to own, then I’ll do all those, so that’s kind of what I’ve been doing.”
With her own business as a part of Carolina United Realty, top real estate agent in South Carolina Jan Carlisle has risen through the ranks over the three years she’s been in business and is in the top 10 percent of realtors for the Carolina MLS which includes York County and Lancaster County of South Carolina. For Carlisle, who works as a solo agent, it’s all about providing good customer service and it’s the reason her clients come back to her. “I wait for the cable man or the gas man or whoever I have to wait for,” she says. “I wait for furniture people to deliver things which I think is above and beyond.” Her repeat and referral business is also strong with 25 percent of her sales coming from these clients, making the real estate niche she has carved out for herself not only a good idea on her part but a success in several regards.
Carlisle has a unique way to keep in touch with her clients with a coupon mailer she sends out once a month that offers a discount to local restaurants in the area. Not only do her clients appreciate this but they call her to say thanks which keeps her at the forefront of their minds. Carlisle, who is a self-proclaimed couponer knows all too well herself how important these coupons can be to a family. “I get a lot of calls saying thank you for the $10 coupon for a Chinese restaurant or pizza place,” says Carlisle. “I do a different restaurant every month that’s local to our zip code.”
It’s these little things that her clients take note of and really express to her how much they mean. “I hear the same adjectives over and over again,” says Carlisle. “I hear you’re so awesome. You’re so nice. You’re always there for me. You just hear those things over and over again and you think, maybe that’s true.” It is this kind nature of hers that has made her a good friend to many of the clients she has worked with. She’s invited to her clients’ birthday parties, housewarmings, and dinners out with them.
Carlisle is also a friend to the community where she lives as she makes an effort to help out by donating to the Fort Mill Care Center and the York County Humane Society. “I try to get my coupons together to donate toiletries and pet food to these organizations,” says Carlisle. One of her more recent donations included 100 bags of dog and cat food for the Humane Society. She also donates canned goods and supplies and wants to start her own food drive very soon.
