“There are lots of companies selling property. What I like about Beach Commercial is that they helped us every step of the way, long after the transaction. We first worked with Beach Commercial when Pearlstine Distributors opened a new headquarters at Charleston Regional Business Park. We planned to build a new building and we needed help. All the way through construction, they guided us to help us determine the best resources for each phase of construction. After we were open, they continued to help by coordinating the business park owners’ association to work out issues between tenants. When you work with Beach Commercial, you enjoy the full benefit of The Beach Company’s advice and expertise.
At the end of the day, you want to work with people you like. We are working with The Beach Company again on other projects, 20 years later. Not only are they great people to work with, but their market insight is an advantage. They can always see two chess moves ahead.”

“Beach Commercial Real Estate is the most professional team I have worked with in my world. Over several transactions, from seeking the best commercial space to rent, to purchasing one of their listings, Beach Commercial are trusted advisors, provide first class service, and are always on point. As a corporate owner, I really appreciate that they respect my time by always being prepared. They follow through and do exactly as they promise.”
Dan Gilsenan, Tidewater Medical, Inc.
“We chose Beach Commercial to list our property because of their reputation and unparalleled experience handling commercial properties in Downtown Charleston. I’ve worked with them for some 25 years, and my estimation, no other firm has the local experience this firm has. Edward is a very deep resource who knows what’s going on and what’s available in the local commercial market. You can count on him to have pricing information about leasing and sales in the market at his fingertips at any time. Our confidence in their reputation really paid off. Edward and Alex worked doggedly on our behalf, devoting a great deal of time to getting to know the property. Their contacts, reach and knowledge of our property were instrumental in overcoming challenges with selling this magnificent house.
Our team at Beach Commercial was conversant, by that I mean they could demonstrate they knew everything there was to know about the property. Buyers have a lot of questions, and working with someone who can readily share a plethora of details about a property is important and impressive to anyone who expresses interest in it.
Edward and Alex were also tireless even after the contract was signed. Often there’s a difficult period in a real estate transaction between the signing of the contract and the closing — inspections are going on and details are being worked out. They handled that crucial period so diplomatically. It’s a balancing act because the purchaser is looking for ways to drive the price down, and the seller wants to sell the property. Somebody has to keep everybody calm and reasonable, even though people on both sides have different agendas and often move different directions. The Beach Company is masterful at striking just the right balance.”
