Charleston Metro Homes Real Estate of Mount Pleasant continues to grow. Owned by Daniel Island residents Steve and Debbie Smith, the group recently welcomed several new agents to their office.
John and Karen Hendricks joined the company as a husband and wife team and will serve buyers and sellers through connections they’ve created in the Charleston area. Karen has been a pharmacist for over 30 years and John comes from a background of being a residential insurance adjuster and a Charleston Tour Guide.
Karen, who grew up in the Detroit area and later moved to Charlotte, NC before settling in Charleston, says she plans to “bring all the skills I’ve learned in customer service, attention to detail and efficiency I’ve learned as a pharmacist for well over 30 years” to her new post.
“I have also bought and sold several of my own houses over the years, and know exactly what buyers and sellers are experiencing when they make the big decision to move,” she added. “I look forward to helping people sell their current home and find that perfect dream home.”
Layla Wright began her real estate career in 2015 after relocating to Daniel Island. She fell in love with downtown Charleston’s cobblestone streets, coffee shops and art galleries five years ago while vacationing here and decided to make it her home. With a Master’s degree in early childhood education, Layla specializes in finding homes for families with children. Additionally, she has been the preferred agent for two large developments on John’s Island, including the Angel Oak Plantation and the Fenwick Plantation.
Also joining the team is Mount Pleasant resident Ashley Fischer, who relocated to Charleston from upstate New York in 2013. Ashley graduated from Albany Law School in May 2016, where she focused on social justice issues through internships with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Environmental Crimes Section of the Department of Justice. She recently decided to use her legal experience and desire to cultivate her career in real estate by becoming a licensed broker associate of Charleston Metro Homes Real Estate.
The Charleston Metro Homes Real Estate office also recently welcomed Arizona native Kelly McComb as one of its newest agents. Kelly attended the University of Arizona where she earned a BS in Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing.
