Meet the Team
Chris Turner RMP®
Chris Turner has been investing in real estate since 1993. He began buying and renting homes while stationed in Alaska with the US Air Force. Originally from Greenville, SC he decided to move back to South Carolina and settled in the Columbia area. He began purchasing rental properties and handled the management, maintenance and screening of tenants himself. Over the years he’s learned many lessons while managing his own real estate investments. Chris applies the lessons he’s learned to keep his clients from making those same mistakes.
While he was with Century 21 Bob Capes realtors he worked with homebuyers and sellers helping them navigate the sometimes complicated world of real estate. He also headed up a new commercial office development in Northeast Columbia.
Chris decided to start his own real estate company in the hopes of being better positioned to serve his clients. Beginning in 2008 we opened our doors with just 1 client who owned 4 units. Today we manage over 200 units throughout the Midlands. We believe this rapid growth is due to our personal service and attention to detail.
In the past few years he has shifted the company’s focus primarily to property management. Chris has attended numerous classes and seminars regarding rental management and currently has the Residential Management Professional designation from the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM®). There are very few agents with this designation in the market. The RMP® designation requires online and classroom education, 100 unit years of experience managing residential real estate, letters of recommendation from current designation holders and clients and volunteer service to NARPM®.
