Brian Beatty grew up in a Real Estate family and has had a passion for his profession since he began working summers for his family's company at the age of 13. In 2006, Beatty earned Entrepreneur of the Year in Charleston for creating an online real estate marketing company, which set him on a direct path toward becoming a Realtor. Starting in the business at 21 years old and during one of the toughest economies our country has seen over the past several decades Beatty learned quickly that the best way to earn business was to become better educated, work smarter and work harder than his peers. One of Beatty's favorite saying is "a smooth sea never made a skillful mariner." Fast forward 4 years and Beatty was in the top 1% of Agents in Charleston where he has been consistently ranked ever since.
In 2012, after earning the #1 Agent in the Southeast US for # of transactions and sales volume for his previous Company, Beatty moved to Keller Williams to form his own Team to begin focusing specifically on the markets he serves best. Anyone that has worked with Beatty would say he is professional, passionate and results-driven. "My goal is to accomplish the Client's goal" Beatty says. "Above all else, my passion for quality, top-level service and results are what set me apart. My experience, track record of sales and testimonials from previous Clients serve to show that I am a trusted professional that can deliver on the things I say I will do. I also firmly believe that if people don't hire me simply because of my production that I am one of the most versatile and aggressive Agents in Charleston when it comes to marketing a home for sale. The proof is in the numbers - my homes sell faster and for more money than the market average because I UNDERSTAND how to capture the attention of people online where most Agents do not."
Brian Beatty has represented nearly half a Billion dollars in residential real estate ranging from a high volume of distress sales (short sales, foreclosures, etc.), investment properties (rental properties to $1mil+ vacation homes), and working with Sellers to sell their properties.
