Mother-Daughter team in 1996 (we are proud to say we were the 1st M/D team in the Greater Columbia area and we are the first Realtors with our own website). Our family moved to Columbia in 1991 and made the Columbia and Irmo area near Lake Murray our permanent home after 15+ moves. We love it here and like to help you to love it too. Our Clients said "You Love What You Do And It Shows". It's true, we love what we do. We find it very rewarding when we see that you love your new home and new community. We believe that is what you deserve and want. We make every effort to help you find the perfect house and community that you make home anywhere around Columbia. Buying a home is exciting and should be fun. We like to be part of that. Our promise to you is to take out some of the stress of your move and relocation. Helping you find the right house and community you want is our commitment to you. 

25 Years (since 1993) selling homes in and around Columbia SC and Lake Murray:  Experience in Contracts - Financing - Marketing - Skilled Negotiator - Inspections - Attend Closing - Walk-Through with New Construction (You are alone because the on-site agent does none of that including attend closing with the Builders Attorney) and more. We provide value added service that goes beyond closing.

From starter homes to luxury homes, we'll list and sell them all. Presently Kirstin is very sick and still working on getting her health back having lived in Toxins (MOLD +) not knowing it. She was told a Mold test is not needed since she was already too sick to get it done herself. With our non-medical care in SC and the US it has been extremely difficult to find  doctor that actually does what he is supposed to, make patients well.

You will find that our concern for you is genuine.

Looking for a NEW Home? Use Quick Search or Map Search to browse an up-to-date database list of all available properties in the area, or use my Dream Home Finder form and I'll conduct a personalized search for you.

Thinking of selling your home now or in the future, nothing is more important than knowing a fair asking price to get your home sold. I can assist you with a FREE Market Analysis. Note this will only serve as estimate for the time when it was created. The market changes over time and is not to be used for a price for you to list your home. When you are ready I will prepare a new CMA after I have met with you and walked through your home, evaluated it and compared it to similar sold homes. I can assist with STAGING your home and tips to get your home market and show ready.

Our market in the Columbia area has changed this year, 2018, where homes sell as quickly as in 1 day or less than a week. Interest Rates have increased and are predicted to continue to do so. There is a limited value of existing homes and new homes for sale. So buyers make quick decisions. Think about a home you like another buyer will have made an offer.

I look forward to hear from you to get started.

Kirstina Shore recommends Rosemarie Averhoff Realtor.

October 18, 2018 ·
Rosemarie Averhoff is the best agent! She helped me find my home in NE Columbia in 2009. While I was still working/living in N. VA, she drove 1 1/2 miles round trip from Irmo nearly daily for a month to ensure that repairs to the home were done in a timely and correct manner. She was my eyes and ears during that time. Again, when I sold the property this year, 2018, she ensured that repairs were done in a timely manner. Thank you, Rosemarie, for always having my back! ***** Five stars to you!

Kirstina Shore
A Complete Turn Around for us - October 30, 2006 To whom it may concern, We have just had the great privilege of working with Kirsten and Rosemarie Averhoff on the sale of our home. We had it listed under a friend in the real estate business for six months with no success. When Rosemarie and Kirstin took over it was a complete turnaround. They are very professional and knowledgeable. They told us what we should have been told six months prior. Our house has a contract due to their work and dedication to us. We recommend them without hesitation. Sincerely, Jeff Kerby, 133 Olivia Way Lexington SC
