What clients are saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We met Chuck shortly after we purchased our first dream home in Cashiers. He assisted us in buying an adjacent lot and then spent the next six years showing us building lots and too many homes to count in search of our “ultimate” dream home, which we finally acquired in July 2018. He then listed our first home which sold in 6 days with multiple offers! The video that Chuck had put together was probably the most well done real estate video we have ever seen. It put our property in the most favorable light and actually sold the home before it was physically seen. He has also assisted us in acquiring several adjacent lots to our new home. Chuck Self is a sales professional who has spent his career in various selling roles. He is extremely patient and absolutely has the best interests of his clients top of mind. Extremely knowledgeable of the area, he is attentive to your requirements, even when they are constantly changing, and has a no pressure, affable style. He constantly follows-up with all parties as a transaction unfolds to ensure the client doesn’t have to. He goes beyond responsive and is proactive in anticipating potential issues and concerns. From a negotiating perspective, we found him to be quite aggressive, but in a way that was fact-based and therefore, not confrontational. Chuck brings whatever resources are necessary to get the job done. Although there are many brokers and agencies in the area, it would be hard to do better than Chuck Self, buying or selling!
Michael and Christine Friday - Charleston, SC
We first called Chuck because he was so highly recommended by a friend who knew of his many successful sales, particularly of houses that had been hard to sell. From our first meeting to hear Chuck's presentation his professionalism and sterling character were evident. His background in television serves him well in advertising. His use of professional photography resulted in stunning photos. Chuck distinguished himself by being very proactive and by making the sale of our home a priority. His very personal demeanor made him a pleasure not only to work with but also to gain as a friend. He is the consummate professional and we would highly recommend him to sell anyone's home.
Mickey and Janie Crews - Cashiers, NC
I was a real estate broker that had moved from the area. I had tried to sell the home thru my agency for 2 1/2 years without success. I knew and respected Chuck Self from working with him, I then hired him and his firm, Sliver Creek, to list and sell my home. He was able to get a contract, but there were issues with the inspection. The Buyer wished to terminate, but Chuck's persistence in getting the Buyer to give us a Repair Request led to the successful sale of the home. In nearly all cases, this would have "killed" the deal. However, Chuck's professional manner and expertise in dealing with the Buyer's broker resulted in the Buyer deciding to go forward and buy my house. I am very grateful for the job Chuck Self did to secure a Buyer and complete the sale of my house. One of the best brokers in the highlands-Cashiers-Lake Glenville area.
David Klingel - Edenton, NC
I recently purchased a property on the east side of Lake Glenville and could not of closed the deal without the help of Dan. I live out of state which made it difficult for me to meet with inspectors, contractors, etc. Dan stepped in and lined up meetings, met numerous contractors at the property, suggested certain things be inspected that I would not have thought of, etc... He provided info for many of his contacts to help with different projects. I felt that Dan really put our interest above everything else and wanted to ensure that we were comfortable with the purchase. Thanks Dan!
Dan and Kathryn just sold our house on Lake Glenville and did an excellent job. They knew the local marketplace, were very responsive and went the extra mile. Our house was older so it needed several updates and Dan was able to work through this process with everyone successfully.
Chuck helped us find our dream home in the mountains. We are just thrilled about the house. Chuck knew the area well and gave us great advice without any drama or pushiness. He kept a close eye on the changing market in a way that turned up choices that I had not yet found during my own internet searches. If my family or friends were Looking for a home, I would recommend that they call him.
Scott & Cyndy - Atlanta, GA
As an out-of-state seller, it was important for us to find an agent that we could trust. Chuck is that agent! Chuck always did what he said he would do. He was very responsive and seemed to have a good knowledge of the local market. We definitely would do business with Chuck again.
Gary Boyd - Ashville, AL
Absolutely can't go wrong when choosing Chuck Self as your Realtor. Honesty, and integrity that few could match. I have personally made real estate transactions since 2014 with Chuck representing as my agent. Each time, the process was as seamless and effortless as possible. I've actually even witnessed as Chuck advised a potential buyer AGAINST buying a particular property, as he didn't feel they would be satisfied, or it just wasn't the right fit. This is a testament to his integrity, as it only caused him the loss of a quick sale, and more work on his part to find the perfect home for his clients. In short, 2 thumbs up, 5 stars across the board. Keep up the fine work Chuck!
Michael Jennings—Glenville, NC
The first impression is clearly ‘she has to be kidding’- I mean who has a name like that? But it turns out she had very little to do with her name (well maybe the Kaine part). Seriously - Bambi is absolutely delightful. She is hard-working, responsive, and simply the best realtor that we have ever dealt with. If not for all Bambi did, we would never have bought our mountain home. She guided and cajoled and held our hands with a smile. Above all else, she became our friend.
Joan and Arthur Schwartz, Sarasota, Florida
There is a reason that Bambi has “Famous” as a middle name. She works tirelessly to get the deal done and always goes the extra effort. It was simply the best real estate experience we have had. She is also extremely connected to a great local network to help facilitate any transitional needs. Her knowledge of the area is second to none.
