To many, America’s Favorite City is strictly the downtown area of the Charleston Peninsula. Technically, the city of Charleston spreads from West Ashley to north of Daniel Island, from James Island to Johns Island. Should Downtown Charleston be where you want to focus your interest, you may want to opt for a real estate agent who concentrates on that area. The other areas are featured separately on this site. The best advice: interview a real estate professional before entrusting your future transaction with them. Charleston has many talented, assiduous members of the real estate community.
