Susan Matthews

Your Five-Star Charleston REALTOR®

Before my career in real estate, I was a “Lookie Lou” and every Sunday you’d find me at open houses. I bring that same love of home discovery to your home search. Back then, I was an on-air guest host at QVC – the TV shopping network and also provided marketing services for Fortune 500 companies. My sales and marketing expertise gives my home sellers a competitive advantage.

I’m deeply committed to the protection of children. As an advocate for legal reform on the state level, I learned a great deal about negotiation, diplomacy and tenacity. I put these skills to work in helping my clients land their best real estate deal.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, my husband and I fell in love with Charleston when we visited for a wedding. It wasn’t long before we moved our family here. I enjoy helping others relocate to the area and I know exactly what services to offer because of my own move. Expect the warmest welcome. I also find it very fulfilling to help local buyers find their best home here – whether it’s a first or forever home.

I go beyond basic real estate to elevate the experience and outcome with my Gold Key programs, market intelligence and service. I also hope to make it fun. Please contact me today to get started.

What People Are Saying About Susan ...

Her dedication to her career and numerous philanthropy efforts makes her a person that stands above the rest. Susan is always a consummate professional with a wealth of knowledge and a team-player attitude.
Her professional approach to the job is the key to her continued success! In an ocean of mediocrity, Susan is an island of charisma and warmth.
We had a simply fabulous experience with Susan. Our family was considering relocating from Philadelphia to the Charleston area. Susan knew our timeline was tight, she was available, did many previews on her own time as to not waste our limited time. Most importantly, to us, is she listened to ... what we wanted in a home, so the ones she did show us were viable options. Our son attends private school and it was important for us that he continue his education in a similar manor. Susan made contact with the school for us as well as the lacrosse coach. Her communication skills are outstanding, whether it be to her client, fellow realtor or sellers. A true professional through and through. I know this because in the end, my husband received a job offer that precluded us from moving. Susan wished our family well and let us know she would be there when/if the time came we needed her. She was very reassuring in a difficult time for our family. We certainly hope in a few years we will work with her again. We have no interest in looking any further.
Susan was great! From the moment we spoke on the phone for an introduction, to her willingness to meet us quickly over the weekend to talk about the sale of our home, Susan was extremely professional and personable. She made us feel at ease with the process and the speed ... that we needed to move. Her experience helped us to quickly stage our home, make some minor yet meaningful improvements and get it listed. Through her marketing efforts, we not only had several interested parties in the first couple of days, but we had an offer on the table. I wish we could have taken Susan with us to our new location to help in the process of buying again!
Having moved 17 times in the past 15 years, I can say without question that Susan Matthews is the BEST, most trustworthy, hardworking and professional realtor I have ever worked with. She is an out of the box thinker when it comes to marketing and social media and is able ... to generate exposure and interest in her listings like no one else. Her knowledge of the Mt Pleasant real estate market can't be matched and she goes above and beyond to compile comps, stats and data so that you can be comfortable with the complex financial decisions that are inherent in real estate. She has handled more than $2 million in real estate transactions for my family. I will only work with Susan in the future....
