- Testimonial: “I have been a REALTOR® in Florida for 31 years so I was very careful in selecting an agent to help us find property in the Carolinas. We were extremely blessed to find Carol and Doug. I was immediately impressed with their professionalism. They simply possess the most unique combination of personality and capability I have seen in this business. Our real estate needs were challenging. We were told that it didn't exist and were convinced that it was not to be. Carol and Doug were willing to travel a little farther and found the perfect property in a day's time. When we were ready to sell that property, they were there for us again and accomplished the task in short order. We are customers for life!”

Lake Keowee is a cocoon of beauty at the foothills of the Blue Ridge
Mountains in upstate South Carolina, the Golden Corner! It has pristine emerald waters and layer upon layer of dramatic mountain views as a backdrop. Lake Keowee has 18,500 acres of clear, clean, deep mountain water and 300 miles of shoreline. We are blessed with a mild climate: long springs and falls, mild winters and moderate summers.
Golf is a four-season sport on our championship golf courses. People enjoy boating on Keowee all year, also. Lake Keowee is a spectacular mountain lake. Compared to surrounding lakes, Keowee is virtually insensitive to drought due to water supply from lakes to the north. The water stays deep! The nearby Blue Ridge mountain rivers and lakes to the
north, such as Bad Creek reservoir and Lake Jocassee, make all the difference!

location, location! Nearby cities include Greenville, Asheville, and Atlanta. You are within 15 minutes of many amenities. Take in a Clemson football game, go shopping, enjoy fine dining, go hiking to the waterfalls, or simply take a scenic mountain drive through upstate South Carolina. Lake Keowee offers it all.
Just south of Lake Keowee is 56,000 acre Lake Hartwell — one of the largest man-made lakes east of the Mississippi. It is filled in part by the clean mountain waters of Keowee River and the Tugaloo River. There are many lakefront communities that we can show you there as well. We are close to both Clemson and Furman Universities, forty miles from the Appalachian Trail and within an hour's drive of over 200 stunning waterfalls.
Nearby Highlands and Cashiers NC give us the best of both worlds; the majestic mountains and the emerald waters of Keowee and Jocassee!
