Wilson Associates rides wave of growth, welcomes two new agentsMarch 15, 2023
Wilson Associates, one of Greenville’s largest independent real estate firms, recently welcomed two new agents to its growing roster of savvy, service-oriented professional realtors. Carolyn Haas and Melissa Tofield come to Wilson with decades of experience and a strong network of contacts throughout the Upstate.
Melissa Tofield comes to Wilson with nearly 20 years of real estate experience and a passion for helping others. She has helped thousands of families find and sell homes, while providing a warm welcome to our area for many who have relocated here. Her relationship with and respect for Wilson founders Sharon Wilson and Nick Carlson go back many years to a time when all three worked together at another local firm and shared a common approach to real estate and core professional values. Tofield also shares Wilson Associates’ deep commitment to community service, highlighting it as one of the primary reasons for her decision to join the agency. Melissa attended Georgia Southern University and is a long-time supporter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the Alzheimer’s Foundation and Autism Speaks.
Carolyn Haas brings a unique skills set to her role at Wilson Associates. While she has earned the praise of many former real estate clients, she has a master’s degree in marriage and family counseling and owns Twill, a women’s clothing boutique on Augusta Road. Her background in counseling has been especially helpful in negotiations and managing client relationships and differences of opinions among buyers, and the business acumen she has gained through running her own business has given her an edge in handling complex transactions. Haas is a Greenville native whose family has deep roots in the area. She holds an undergraduate degree from Converse College and a graduate degree from Clemson University and is an active member of the Augusta Circle Elementary School PTA, a Meals on Wheels volunteer and a dedicated supporter of the Belaire Community Partners afterschool program in the Judson Mill district. Haas came to Wilson Associates based on its unmatched reputation for supporting agents, as well as the firm’s client focus.
In its eight years in business, Wilson Associates has become one of the one of the top-performing and most selective real estate firms in the Upstate, offering clients the highest levels of personalized service and deep local expertise. A thriving independent firm in a sea of large national agencies, Wilson has also earned a reputation for being one of the Greenville real estate market’s best places to work, offering the agents they hand-select from large numbers of applicants unparalleled support and training, close mentoring from founders Sharon Wilson and Nick Carlson, a culture of caring and community advocacy and access to growth and advancement opportunities.
“Wilson is blessed to have its pick of a large number of highly qualified and talented real estate agents in the Upstate and beyond,” noted Wilson Associates founder Sharon Wilson. “We were drawn to Carolyn Haas and Melissa Tofield because of their strong personal and professional fit – smart, client-first agents who have worked to benefit our community – as well as their network of client and community connections. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Wilson family.”
