Best Realtor
Matt O’Neill

Charleston Realtor Matt O’Neill describes his ascendance in the Charleston real estate market simply: “It’s a 15-year overnight success story.” In a city with some 8,000 real estate agents, O’Neill said, he knows he’s got competition. But, to surpass him, an agent would have to beat him at his own game. “I wake up every morning at 4 a.m., and I read and study. And, I’ve been doing that for 15 years,” O’Neill said. And, he’s not afraid of sharing the secrets, emailing training information to local agents every month. “I give it all away,” he said. But, Charleston’s Best Realtor gives credit to his team for breaking through in the busy local real estate market, where inventory is low and demand is high.
