Owner Harris Homes Team – Lead Agent
My family and I moved to Columbia South Carolina in 2006. My husband has been partners in a successful local restaurant in the Downtown Vista area and a 2nd location on Lake Murray until retiring in 2016 to join our real estate team.
I have been blessed with an exciting career in sales and marketing over the last 20 years. I have had the pleasure of working in the world of NHRA Drag Racing, NASCAR, event marketing for companies such as Cover Girl, Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, and Harley-Davidson just to name a few of my exciting adventures in my life. Once my husband and I really pushed the restaurant business to success with deep roots in community involvement and a deep investment in The Lake Murray restaurant, we knew this would be the place we would call home to raise our two children! Greg had a deep desire to add value to our real estate team with over 4 decades of successful hospitality business experience. So in 2016 he made the transition for our successful real estate team to continue to grow and provide a high level of client service!
In 2013, we began the adventure of building our custom home on the shores of Lake Murray, the Jewel of South Carolina. This has given us a personal competitive edge in knowing the ins and outs, as well as, the obstacles in the real estate’s world of custom home building and the challenges of buying and selling homes or land on Lake Murray. In transplanting to Columbia, SC in 2006 while working in the field of marketing, I was forced to get to know the area quickly and efficiently. I have experienced the relocation challenges here in South Carolina and also in my moves throughout my life to Oklahoma, Texas, Florida and North Carolina. I can relate to home buyers looking to sell a home quickly or buy a home simultaneously, due to relocation. So Please allow us to to put our experience to to work for you and ease the challenges of relocating.
