The Cassina Group continues to dominate the luxury real estate market in the first half of 2020

July 8, 2020

Despite the slowdown from COVID-19, The Cassina Group had an extremely strong first half of the year, ending June as the No. 1 boutique firm for home sales over $750,000 and $1 million*. The company closed or placed pending more than $228.9 million in real estate through July 1, 2020, cementing its role as a leader in the Charleston market.

“Despite the challenges we have faced due to the global pandemic, our Realtors at The Cassina Group continue to excel in providing first-class service to our clients throughout every stage of the transaction,” said Owen Tyler, managing broker and partner of the firm. “Charleston continues to be a top destination for those looking to relocate. Our city’s historic charm and great climate, coupled with world-class restaurants and a vibrant art scene, allow for an easy transition for a permanent residence or second home.”

The boutique firm, with 36 full-time Realtors, had several notable transactions so far this year. Robertson Allen, founding partner of The Cassina Group, represented the seller of the penthouse unit at the Peoples Building (18 Broad St., #801), a record-breaking sale for the peninsula, closing for $12 million in March.

Other notable downtown sales included 24 King St. and 4 S. Battery Place, with Robertson Allen representing the sellers on both transactions. In addition, 1702 Poe Ave., a fully renovated home on Sullivan’s Island with modern finishes and outdoor living spaces, sold for $2,195,000 with founding partner Jimmy Dye representing the sellers.

Another notable sale for The Cassina Group was in Mount Pleasant’s Old Village. The property at 207 Pitt St., a historic yet newly renovated home with an ideal location, sold in June for $2,200,000 with Charles McIntosh representing the sellers.
