I have made Columbia my home for more than 30 years. I love living here and enjoy all the amenities Columbia has to offer. If you do need a break, you’ll find both the beach and the mountains are short drives away. As you know, Buying or Selling a home is one of the biggest transactions you will ever make and I will do my best to ensure a smooth transition. I am dedicated to making this process easy for you. 803-261-2946
