Jim Smith’s group at Tri-County Properties are a complete joy to work with. From the beginning, Jim asked the right questions to pinpoint exactly what I was looking for. My situation was challenging as I was selling property in another part of the state in a poor economy, so Jim knew that all of his hard work was only contingent on my property being sold. This scenario had many variables that he had no control over, but I knew that he was the right person for my situation. When my lot sold, Jim immediately had some great options available. Two weeks later, I made a purchase that I am extremely pleased with. Other agents probably would have given up or felt the efforts were not worth the time. He stuck with me and always made time for my questions and concerns. My interest was in lakefront properties, and this was definitely his forte. Jim is knowledgeable, reliable, and well-organized. I would absolutely use Tri-County Properties again. – Ashley Segal, Rock Hill, SC

We are very grateful to have had you and your team working for us. Melanie Evatt, your Closing Care Specialist, is an exceptional professional. She really knows the business and is so responsible. Every time we were upset by the process or lenders or lawyers, she would respond truthfully with genuine empathy and intervene, guiding us through this tedious process. We were so impressed with her diligence and communication with us. You have a great team there. Staff who answer the phone always responded to our needs and followed through with the action they had promised. We appreciated that too, especially being long distance. Thanks again for all the hard work on our behalf. We will highly recommend you to anyone who may need help with their property. -Bill & Mori Yowell, Springfield VA

I am happy to recommend Beth Yancey for your realtor needs. I found Beth to be very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. She found several properties that met my requirements and always kept me appraised of any changes in availability, or price changes. She stayed in contact by phone and email when necessary. She is also friendly and very easy to work with. Dave Banik, Menasha WI

It is rare today when service providers actually do what they say they will do. Tri-County Properties is one such example. From start to finish (which wasn’t long) they performed beyond expectations. Melanie, actually anticipated and answered some of my questions before I asked. My only issue, was we were hoping to have one more summer on the lake when we listed our home in March. When we had a contract nine days later we quickly realized that would not happen! I have, and will continue to unreservedly recommend Jim Smith’s business to others. -Lis Wilson, Seneca SC

Jim & Lisa, Thank you so much for the wonderful “goody” bag. We took it up to the house to open with a bottle of champagne! Such fun and thoughtful gifts…and the knives are gorgeous! Lisa you’ve been so patient with us as we looked for just the right house. You and your team have been phenomenal to work with. We look forward to a long friendship on the lake. Thank you for everything! –Dede & Tom, Seneca SC

Jim and his wife, Lisa, met me in my home with enthusiasm for the prospective sale. Lisa’s pictures that were posted on MLS were very professional. Throughout the months of dealing with a buyer Jim advised me in a most positive manner. He had his associate, Melanie Evatt, keep in close touch with me at all times. I have and will continue to recommend Jim Smith and the Lakefront Team. –Cecile Cely, Greenville SC

I want to thank Jim and Lisa for the help you have provided to my wife and I during our real estate transactions in South Carolina. Your knowledge of the area and the real estate market there provided valuable insight during the process. It has been a pleasure to work with you over the past six years. –John, Charlotte NC

Kathy and I would like to thank you for the service you provided in acquiring our lakefront property.  We had just about given up our dream of finding a lot on Lake Keowee which met our needs.  When we started working with you it seemed the dream became your quest also.  There’s no doubt your knowledge of the area, market, and details specific to lakefront lots made our dream possible.  Patience dealing with us combined with urgency in keeping us informed makes it easy to recommend your services to our friends. –Roger & Kathy, Simpsonville SC

Jim Smith and Tri-County real estate team are fantastic! We went from listing to an executed contract in 9 days! I would highly recommend Jim and his team for any of your real estate needs. –Tom Price, Seneca SC

Our experience with Jim Smith as our realtor was very positive. Living out of state and having no access to the area, we relied on the many and faithful e-mails he sent. When we finally started shopping, he was helpful, knowledgeable and patient. After our purchase he continues to be supportive and helpful. Thanks, Jim, we love our home and our neighborhood. –Wilbur & Darla, Myrtle Beach SC

Melanie and Lisa, Thank you for all that you did on our behalf to reach our dream of purchasing our home on Lake Keowee, we are so appreciative. Working with both of you made this process so simple and stress free. You both are wonderful to work with. Thank you. –Dave & Ellen Steinour, Washington DC

Pam, Thanks so much for spending the time with us-I know “it’s your job” but you went above and beyond and we had fun doing it! You’re awesome, we’ll be in touch! –Larry & Barb Vlach, Ohio
