How We Began

Our story started more than 20 years ago when the first homes were offered for sale in Charleston’s island town community of Daniel Island. Over a period of more than two decades, Daniel Island has transformed from a rural farming and cattle ranching outpost into an integral part of the City of Charleston, nationally recognized for its innovative master plan, diverse residential real estate, top-ranked recreational facilities, diverse businesses and regional and international events. As the exclusive source for new homes and homesites on the island, Daniel Island Real Estate has remained the experts and market leader for residential property on Daniel Island, working with prospective buyers from across the country who are interested in learning more about living in Charleston and on Daniel Island.

Selling Daniel Island has always involved selling Charleston as a desirable place to live. Today, in addition to our Daniel Island experience, we draw upon our experience and vast knowledge of all of Charleston’s real estate markets to help our clients successfully navigate the process of buying or selling a home anywhere in the Lowcountry.

Development Team

Sloan of The Daniel Island Company, Crow Holdings (the holding company of the Trammell Crow family), Greystar Capital Partners and J. Ronald Terwilliger (the former national managing partner of Trammell Crow Residential), the owners all share a common vision and goal of long term value creation. Day-to-day development activities on Daniel Island are being managed by the DI Development Company, one of the most experienced community development teams in the southeast.
