you can rely on my 27+ years of experience, knowledge and caring for your needs.

I would be honored to assist you with your home purchase and or sale. I am patient, won't rush you, wait until you are ready to make a decision. I like to make the difference in your real estate experience. You will find that I genuinely care about my/our clients. I listen to what you are looking for and what your budget is. When I say I treat you as I like to be treated I mean it. I am a Broker Associate®, REALTOR®, CERTIFIED RESIDENTIAL SPECIALIST CRS® and an Accredited Buyer Representative ABR®. Why select me to assist you in all your real estate transactions? I have a proven track record of success.

Visit and see the benefits when working with a CRS. Less than 3% of all REALTORS® in the US are CRS's. Not all Agents are REALTORS®, there is a difference.

All the letters behind my and other REALTORS names mean that we have educated ourselves to better serve all our clients better. We have taken time to travel to take mandatory course and complete them and get the Professional Designations awarded by NAR®. CRS is the highest professional designation in Residential Real Estate.

I talk about myself here because Kirstin, my daughter and partner, became sick after she lived in her house in Mold over 5 years plus inhaled Carbon Monoxide around 7 yrs and did not know it. Kirstin was finally able to order a MOLD test. We have looked for help for years but were not aware medicine is a cold business now. It's all about money not the patient.

I am open, honest, upfront and it is my goal to make your move a success. We have been buyers & sellers, owned homes in Columbia and 14 other states and moved around the world. We understand what a challenging process it can be for any buyer and seller. After 15 moves we made Columbia and the Lake Murray area our permanent home 1991 and love it.

My passion for Real Estate, experience and knowledge about the Columbia and Lake Murray areas and communities will benefit you greatly. Since 1993 I have sold well over $100 Million in real estate and have helped 100's of buyers, sellers and families move and relocate within and to Columbia and other states.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide the finest real estate services possible. To treat all customers and clients honestly, fair and give every client the level of service that EXCEEDS their expectations. I/we strive to be well informed, courteous, competent, accessible and thorough from locating that special property or marketing your property for sale to the completion of the transaction.

Our clients consistently find great value in our service and we work hard to earn your trust. Many of our clients come to us as referrals from satisfied clients who buy and sell with us, sometimes multiple times. We sincerely appreciate your testimonials and referrals. Please read some of their Testimonials on our websites.

Buying and selling a home within Columbia and South Carolina, across the United States or abroad?

I can help. Networking with qualified REALTORS and Certified Residential Specialists CRS's all over the US.

I have clients that asked me to assist them with finding them a new home in Charleston after their home in Chapin sold (I had sold it to them and listed it to get it sold).

I am skilled in negotiations, know contracts, will see you through the entire process from finding the right house and community to inspections, repairs, closing and beyond.

Why should you choose Rosemarie to be your REALTOR®?

My/our friendly and hardworking attitude has helped me gain clients trust for over 27 years. I won't stop until you are happy and satisfied. My Risk Management background (and Kirstin’s as Accountant), attention to details, contract knowledge & financing, negotiation skills, and the knowledge of the home buying & selling process can give you an edge in negotiations as we write your Real Estate Contract. We have sold and purchased combined 17 homes ourselves. We take pride in what we do and our clients have said “You love what you do and it shows”. During the time we spend together you will feel that I treat you as a family member that is buy or selling a house.

I will show you all properties that fit your criteria and price range unless you tell me you change the price range

  • I can List & Sell the home that you already own.

  • List Your Home With Me and I treat it like my own. I give it the best marketing to get your home sold and closed for the highest price the market bears.

  • If you are leaving the Columbia area we gladly refer you to a REALTOR ® at your new destination.

    Buying A Home?

    As your Buyer's Agent (ABR®) I'll help you find the home that you want to purchase, no pressure. No fees. I represent your interest including when you buy a NEW HOME or build a home from the bottom up.

    I treat you like I want to be treated and make sure that you are comfortable and knowledgeable with the process. I take the time you'll need. I am patient. Whether you buy your first home, downsize or change your life style I like to be your REALTOR® and assist you.

    You may not be aware that not all Agents are REALTORS. Not all REALTORS® are created equal. There is a difference.

    Why a use a REALTOR when Buying and Selling?

    Work with a REALTOR® who belongs in the top 3% nationwide. To Receive the CRS® Designation, all REALTORS® must demonstrate outstanding professional achievements, including high volume sales, pursue advanced training in areas such as finance, marketing and technology. They must also maintain membership in the National Association of REALTORS® and abide by its Code of Ethics.

    REALTOR® is a federally registered collective membership mark, which identifies a real estate professional who is a Member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR) and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.

    Sales Agents that are not REALTORS and Members of NAR® and the local are Sales Agents and cannot call themselves REALTOR® .

    Letters behind a REALTORS® name confirm professional designations earned, experience, knowledge and success. The professional designations are awarded by the National Association of REALTORS®. They are earned and awarded.
