“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 Street #801), a record-breaking sale for the peninsula, closing for $12 million in March.
