How long has Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty had a presence in Charleston?
Daniel Ravenel started Daniel Ravenel Real Estate in 1983 as the sole agent of his small company. Since that time, the company has grown to nearly 30 agents over its 30+ years serving the Charleston Area. With a reputation built on client service, local expertise, and integrity, the company was approached to join the Sotheby’s International Realty brand and signed on in 2007. Since that time, we have built a strong international presence through the Sotheby’s International Realty brand which builds on our local expertise, bringing Charleston to the national and international stage.
Why is Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty passionate about World Heritage designation for Charleston?
Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty is passionate about bringing Charleston, SC to the world. We know that our city is one of the most unique places in the United States, but having the honor of UNESCO World Heritage designation to reinforce this would truly be the jewel in Charleston’s crown. With its European and historic feel, the city center truly exhibits an old world character which makes it an amazing place to live and work. Its history makes it a lovely place to visit, but its continuing vibrancy and community engagement is what makes it a wonderful place to live. The historic traditions of our city’s culture of inclusiveness and community engagement are alive and well in Charleston’s streets today, and we delight in introducing new residents to this unique society. Our company not only sells beautiful real estate, but we also pride ourselves in introducing the city of Charleston and its surrounding areas to an international audience.
What do you personally love most about living in Charleston?
I love the diversity of activities and landscapes that Charleston’s culture and civic environment provides. One can attend a chamber music performance or black tie gala, shuck oysters by hand on the marsh front, view a local artists painting on a downtown street, enjoy barbecue and bluegrass music under ancient oak trees, or indulge in a cocktail and fine dining en plein air. Charleston offers something for every taste and inclination, and its vibrant culture and citizenry reinforce this diversity every day. With this sort of cosmopolitan mix and unique Lowcountry flavor, it is no wonder Charleston gets visitors from across the US and the world.
Thank you to Ruthie and to Daviel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty for your support!
