It is with great pleasure and satisfaction to recommend Bob Farina’s services to any potential buyer or seller of real estate. First, Bob is a highly experienced and knowledgeable agent. Unlike many realtors who look to push buyers\seller to market, Bob listens first and then moves at the pace his clients establish – not vice versa. There is no pressure whatsoever. Bob just seems to find the right balance between being easy going and having the hustle and efficiency needed to succeed for his clients in a competitive market.Mary and Peter Nemeth
Bob is a terrific agent. He has a great attention to detail and timing, covering all aspects of the process – from home search, and marketing to closing, he is excellent. But more than that, Bob honestly cares for the well-being of his clients and their families. From making sure that we are happy to being concerned that traffic patterns in a prospective neighborhood were safe enough for our teen-age drivers, it was very easy to form a strong and trusting relationship with him.
As we settle into our new home, we could not be happier. And while we don’t expect to be in the market again for some time, there is no doubt in my mind that Bob Farina would be the one and only phone call I would make. We cannot say enough good things about Bob and recommend him wholeheartedly, without a single reservation. Choosing the right realtor is a big decision. Do yourselves a favor and choose to work with Bob. Whatever the services you need, you will be thrilled with his work.
My wife, Iris Kornhauser and I wanted to let you know how pleased we have been with Prestige and in particular, Tricia Peterson. As you know, we had terminated our prior listing agreement with another agency after eight months of frustration. We decided to meet with Trisha to get a sense of how she would approach selling our house and how she would interface with us. After only 35 days and nearly 20 showings, for which she was onsite for most, we received a full price offer which we accepted.
Trisha has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. Her professionalism, enthusiasm, genuine interest in promoting and selling our home, communication skills and engaging personality are characteristics that will certainly serve Prestige and future clients well.

Through Bob’s assistance, I was able to find a home on Daniel Island that was absolutely perfect for my wife and family, while also simultaneously selling another home. I have worked with real estate agents in the past, not always with a great ending or experience. What made this experience different is the additional touches that Prestige offered (YouTube videos, special photography), which led to a contract on my former home within 7 days of listing! However and most importantly, Bob’s hands-on approach sealed the experience. He got to know my family and me on a personal level, which was critically important through the ups and downs of home purchases. He was a confidant, a mentor, and a firm voice of reason when things got hectic. I’ve made sure to let several people know about Prestige and Bob (something I’ve never done for another agent before!). My experience was amazing!
Bob, we want to thank you for making our family's move to SC as seamless as possible. In stage one, you truly went above and beyond in locating the perfect rental property under strict time constraints. Right from the start your promptness and determination to assist us was first class. The walk thru videos you would send me of properties, made our decisions easier since we were relocating from out of state and unable to see in person. You worked your magic negotiating a short term rental with two dogs!!!! In stage two you managed to secure our family the perfect home. This was only possible because you took the time to listen to our needs and wants as if you were a part of our family. Again, your negotiating skills were second to none. I still do not believe we were able to buy this property! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done for us. You are not only a great realtor, but even more importantly you are a great friend. We are blessed to have you in our lives.John and Kirstin Coppola
We would like to recognize Bob Farina of Prestige Real Estate, who represented us in the recent purchase of our Daniel Island condominium. Bob was professional, knowledgeable, attentive and personable. He was always available when we needed him and helped to make the purchasing experience seamless and efficient. He also is knowledgeable about various service providers such as house painters who we could contact. We recommend Bob as an agent for providing significant help in the purchase of a home.Harry Creemers and Martha Groblewski
Bob, now that life has calmed down after our home purchase, Bettina and I would like to take a moment to thank you for your help throughout this exciting process.John & Bettina Routh
As we contemplated our move to Charleston from Connecticut, we spoke with several realtors in the area. When our search narrowed to Daniel Island, we knew we would be very comfortable working with you exclusively. Your deep knowledge of the area and commitment to the region are very apparent. We also appreciated your understanding that we were unsure of what we really wanted in a house, and your willingness to let us work through the process in an unhurried manner. During the negotiations on the actual purchase, your help was instrumental and we are very happy with the purchase price.
Finally, the help you have given us over the past few months since the closing have been above and beyond the call of duty.
Prestige Real Estate Group did an outstanding job despite difficult challenges. Southern charm and welcome, blended with total dedication to the job, resulted in a wonderful home purchasing experience. We wouldn't consider another company!Dede and Craig King
During my 36 years of practicing real estate law and doing thousands of real estate closings for a multitude of wonderful people, I am proud to endorse and recommend Bob Farina of Prestige Real Estate to anyone needing a real estate professional in the Low Country of South Carolina. Bob is indeed at the top of the “best of the best” realtors in Charleston who are all distinguished by their servant’s heart, the common characteristic of always putting their clients first, attention to detail, and excellent communication with their clients throughout the sales process. Equally important, their word is dependable and they deliver success.Don Gibson
I recently had the privilege of employing Bob Farina to assist me with the sale of my Daniel Island condo. Prior to arriving at a sales price and before entering into the listing agreement, Bob went to work for me with intensity to insure that I had all the economic tools necessary to make decisions and insure our joint success. I, in short, became an integral part of his real estate sales team as he went to work on my behalf. The preparation work of Bob, his people skills, intensity and overall professionalism resulted in a closed sale transaction! Bob Farina is “good for his word” and delivers. Thank you Bob.
There are times in life where great things happen by pure coincidence. Such is the case with our meeting Bob Farina from Prestige Real Estate Group. My wife and I had been renting on Daniel Island in order to make sure DI was where we wanted to retire. After falling in love with the island, my wife started looking at available real estate. She left her contact information on several sites and the next thing we knew Bob gave us a call. At our first meeting, Bob spent his time getting to understand our needs/interests and supplying us with helpful information about the local housing market. While we were leaning in one direction (a single family dwelling), Bob suggested that we spend a morning looking at the variety of real estate available on the island. I said, “Good idea, but no condos.” Bob arranged for us to see a variety of real estate options including a condo that had just gone on the market the day before. He apologized several times for showing the condo but said that “based on your needs/interests, you should see this property.” We are so thankful for Bob’s approach and the fact that he understood our needs well enough to encourage us to see the condo. We immediately feel in love with the condo and make an offer on the property that very afternoon. Without Bob, we would have never identified or obtained this property since it was only on the market for three days.
Bob was invaluable in helping us through the offer phase (there with multiple offers on the property) and his suggestion for home inspectors, lending agents, etc. made the whole closing process quick and easy. Bob was there for us every step of the way – even after closing. There was one seller contingency item that was not resolved at closing. Bob followed up on the item until it was resolved.
Bottom line, we cannot say enough positive things about Bob Farina. Yes, we realize that Bob is an agent whose livelihood depends on selling houses. However, we NEVER felt like making a sale was Bob’s motivation. Instead, we felt like we had an old friend helping us through the complicated process of buying a home.
Bob Farina gets our highest endorsement and recommendation.

Bob Farina of Prestige Real Estate made the listing and closing of our home in a difficult market very easy. The team is professional and personable. Bob lends a personal touch to the process from checking in daily to give status reports to beyond closing. Our home was listed at the appropriate sales price for the market and it sold in a matter of days. We feel very fortunate to have met Bob and very much appreciate his assistance. We truly believe that without his desire and the professionalism of Prestige that we would have had a more difficult time selling our home.Cathy and Danny Hall
Bob, we can’t thank you enough for your expert guidance as we searched for just the right condo on Daniel Island.Ellen and Larry Anderson
As first-time, second home buyers, we were both excited and more than a little nervous about making such a substantial purchase. However, your outstanding knowledge of the local real estate market and its growth potential quickly instilled in us a sense of confidence in our decision to move forward.
We have purchased a few primary homes in the past and we have to say that our interactions with you far exceeded those past real estate experiences. You were instantly responsive to our relentless questions, took on our lengthy checklists as your own, explained every nuance of the purchasing process and even orchestrated a remote closing when we found we couldn’t travel down to Charleston for it. You truly made the whole experience virtually seamless!
We really value and thank you for all your efforts on our behalf. Your passion for Daniel Island/Charleston shines through every interaction and makes you a superb ambassador not only for Prestige Real Estate but for the city of Charleston and, in particular, Daniel Island. Your knowledge and love of the area were evident throughout our search and we can’t thank you enough for facilitating the process that has brought the charm and hospitality of Charleston into our lives!
Bob Farina is a consummate professional. He handled both the purchase of our new home and sale of our existing home. When issues arose, he advocated on our behalf to ensure that our interests were protected in a manner that facilitated and sustained positive relationships with the other parties. He followed through on issues through completion independently and when needed, utilized his connections to help us effectively navigate all aspects of the process. Bob provided his professional opinions directly but always put our desires first. We highly recommend Bob Farina as a realtor; he is a true professional and we're proud to call him our friend.Drs. Andrea and Chuck Kelly
Dear Scott and Sue,
Georgann and I want to thank you for your tremendous efforts in selling our Ralston Creek Street house on Daniel Island. We listed the house with you based on your reputation for achieving results. Even though we started the process in the middle of the housing industry decline and were selling a unique custom designed home (reverse floor plan), you demonstrated the aggressive marketing and tireless effort to find qualified buyers and generate showings. Additionally, all the commitments you made to us were delivered: use “best efforts” to qualify buyers, be present at every showing, communicate immediate feedback after showings and conduct regular meetings and discussions to review market data and adjust plans accordingly.
Your hard work and professionalism were the best we have seen in our buying and selling houses over the last 35 years and the follow up communication to us after showings was unrivaled. Lastly, your careful management of the process with the eventual buyers over six months was outstanding. Your constant follow up with the buyer’s agent and your making creative suggestions to the buyers through their agent were ultimately successful.
Thank you for delivering for us in what turned out to be the worst possible market. We will, of course, continue to strongly recommend you to prospective buyers and sellers.
All our thanks,
Bob and Georgann JantzenGeorgann and Bob Jantzen
Dear Sue and Scott,
We are loving our new home and had a wonderful 1st Christmas in "our home" thanks to both of you! No other company would have worked as long as you did to make that possible and I want you to know how happy we are living here. I wish the both of you another successful year!Julie
We worked with the Campbells at Prestige Real Estate Group for over three years to find the right home, negotiate a great deal and move here. They were complete professionals every step of the way. Even after the sale they have been a huge help in getting our family settled into the area. Our family recommends Prestige Real Estate Group as simply the best in the area!Deirdre and Kevin McMurtry
We sold both our primary and an investment home on Daniel Island through Scott and Sue Campbell, owners of Prestige Real Estate Group. They not only put together a great marketing program, but also made sure we had enough of the right traffic to sell the house in a very short time frame. Their negotiating skills are outstanding and allowed us to get better prices than we anticipated. After dealing with some of the other agents on the island, I would say to you, only buy or sell a property with the Prestige Real Estate Group. They are the real deal.Kim Maccalister and Arthur Quinby
Prestige Real estate Group did an awesome job representing us with our recent purchase in downtown Historic Charleston. We have worked with many real estate agencies and purchased many homes over the years and we can say that doing business with Prestige is a cut above the rest. Scott Campbell, Sue Campbell and Tricia Peterson made finding the perfect home and closing on a great contract an absolute pleasure.Susan and Scott Schuessler
I immediately called Tricia when I was looking to buy a home on Daniel Island. She was my daughter's realtor, and just excellent!
Tricia was true to form, and provided me expert assistance and support during my entire buying process. I would recommend Tricia to anyone who is looking for an attentive, knowledgeable real estate professional!

Sue and Scott Campell are a fabulous real estate sales team. Always professional, and always with their clients’ best interests at heart, they guided us through the sale and purchase of two Daniel Island Park homes in just a few short months. We opened a dialogue with Sue and Scott about a possible downsizing. We had strong ideas about the interior space we’d be looking to purchase as new construction, an existing home or perhaps custom build.
At the time, inventory was low and the existing homes, builder new homes, and lot sales in Daniel Island Park did not meet our criteria. The Campbells, always on point, went on the lookout. In a matter weeks, Scott called with news of a home that was not yet listed. He suggested it seemed to be a great fit for what we had described. We loved the home, made an offer and had a ratified contract all within a matter of days. Everything went like clockwork. The closing was the cleanest we’ve ever participated in.
Now it was time to list our existing home for sale. The Campbell’s marketing expertise went into high gear… photography, video, on line and printed brochures, newspaper ads and broker-to-broker networking all made our home look fantastic and reaped a very regular flow of qualified buyers. The Campbells personally attended the home showings. In short order, everything fell into place with a ratified contract and another very gratifying closing experience.
All-in-all, our two home transactions could not have gone smoother or more professionally than the experience we had with Scott and Sue as our trusted agents.

We were so lucky to have Tricia Peterson assist us in our recent home search. She was so patient with us as we researched many Charleston neighborhoods for a home. She spent so many days and late night hours coordinating showings and answering numerous questions regarding the houses. She was always so positive and reassured us that we would find the right house, which we did. She has excellent taste and guided us in the right direction throughout our entire search. We would definitely recommend Tricia, as she provided us with the utmost professional real estate expertise.Kelli and Malcom Gottlich
Tricia Peterson is our real estate agent. How fortunate we are! We bought a home in Mount Pleasant, SC with Tricia's help. We were delighted she was there when negotiations began. She saved us $10,000 on the purchase of a newly constructed home. She was the integral part of the sale of our Daniel Island home. From the beginning she was professional, cordial, and knowledgable with price determination, marketing, and direction. Tricia was with us every step of the way, she was involved with every issue, and problem we encountered. She listened, advised, and researched each issue until she found the best answer. Two offers came in at the same time on our Daniel Island home. She aggressively negotiated the sale price. Her expertise was invaluable. As well as being an excellent realtor, Tricia is truly a very nice, caring, and sincere person. We could not recommend her more highly,

Sue and Scott Campbell, Thank you so much for your kindness and expertise in assisting us in selling our home. You exceeded our expectations and we are very grateful. Jennifer & Greg WoodJennifer and Greg Wood
Tricia Peterson is an amazing realtor. We are relocating to South Carolina from the West Coast for my husband's work. We were in town for a few days to look at houses. Tricia had everything ready for us so that we saw all the houses that met our criteria in one morning. When we made a decision, she got the paperwork rolling so that when we flew back to California the house we loved was under contract!!! While we were in town Tricia was readily available to us, answering questions and taking us to see particular houses "just one more time" to make a decision. We are back on the West Coast now until our move, and Tricia continues to be very responsive and on top of everything. This is my first home buying experience, and we are doing it from afar, so it gives us great piece of mind to have such a knowledgeable and attentive realtor as Tricia. As a bonus, she is great with kids too! She had snack bags packed for my boys and played with them at a neighborhood playground so my husband and I could walk through some houses in peace. They love Tricia too! What a wonderful experience.Andrea Santora
