Meet The Support Team
We‘re more than just Johnny, Michael, Keene, and Thomas. Our team of industry professionals are here to assist from Discovery to Closing.
Peggy, born and raised in the Northeast, joined The Ussery Group a year ago and asks herself, “Why did I take this long to move to the Lowcountry?”
Peggy’s background and experience uniquely qualifies her to provide extraordinary service to clients of the Ussery Group. She began her career as a software designer and then became interested in real estate beginning as a realtor, then an appraiser, and then as a real estate office administer where she prepared market analysis reports, created and implemented marketing strategies, negotiated contracts and assisted clients and agents.
Peggy’s vast experience in real estate makes her the ideal Administrative Coordinator. She loves her work and enjoys serving the clients of The Ussery Group.
Rachel was born and raised in northeast Ohio but has enjoyed living in the Lowcountry since 2007. She has a background in reporting and analysis, working in both the telecommunications and healthcare industries, and was also a successful real estate agent.
Rachel has been an Administrative Assistant to The Ussery Group since 2009 handling listings, closings, and marketing, but now focuses her talents on the marketing side of things as the Marketing Coordinator. Her attention to detail and servant’s heart make her the ideal Marketing Coordinator for the Ussery Group.
Staging and Design
With over 90% of home buyers starting their search on-line, it is more important than ever that homes look as good as possible before we start our marketing program. In light of this, Johnny offers a value-added service to his seller clients. Johnny brings in, at his expense, Sharon Cleland of J. Banks Design. Sharon helps clients of the Ussery Group to repurpose and edit (declutter) their home so that potential buyers can “see” themselves and their furniture in the home.
When Sharon finishes her work, many sellers have exclaimed, “My home looks awesome!” “Why did I not do this earlier?”
Sharon is originally from Ireland where she owned and operated a very successful interior design firm. She has built a portfolio of international projects that span the globe.
Now a top designer with J. Banks Design on Hilton Head, Sharon brings her talent and expertise to clients of The Ussery Group as she helps transform their homes to make them more marketable.
