Our experience with Gus has been nothing less than great. He is professional, knowledgeable, and very hard working. We particularly like his accessibility and personal guidance through the real estate process. We have not been in the real estate market for almost 30 years, so having someone like Gus to guide and advise us has been extremely important. We would be delighted, and proud, to recommend Gus to anybody in need of excellent representation in a real estate transaction.

E.L.W. – Kiawah Island, SC

We are absolutely delighted with the quick turnaround on our two (2) estate size lots at The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek. We had both properties listed with other several other area realtors for over 10-years and never received a single offer on either of them. We listed the lots with Gus effective January 1, 2019. He actively “worked” the listings and brought us buyers for both properties in less than 4-months. Bang! We cannot think of a greater, no BS, testimonial than this. Happy and Satisfied Clients,

Gus Bright was our realtor in selling our home and buying a new one. He was professional, timely, and very knowledgeable about the Charleston market. As two working parents with young children, he made the process very easy for us and walked us through each step. I highly recommend using Gus Bright!
