I can’t say enough about the fine folks at Carolina4Sale. There were quite a few bumps in the road during Our home selling experience, and if it had not been for the diligence and perseverance of our agents, this deal would never have closed. I highly recommend Carolina4Sale if you want an honest, hard working group of realtors. 5 ⭐️‘S
