Selling a home can be stressful, but with the Ussery Group any stress is mitigated by a competent caring team. From the first meeting with Johnny to closing, attention to detail prevailed and we sold our house quickly and for top market price. We highly recommend the Ussery Group! There is no one in the Lowcountry who can deliver results like Johnny.

Phil & Diane Anselmo

Having known Johnny Ussery for over 18 years, when it came time to sell our Hilton Head Island home, we immediately turned to Johnny. He sold our home for full asking price in a very timely manner, and then immediately helped us buy our next home, while we were under a seemingly impossible deadline. He is extremely professional, incredibly personable, and detailed oriented. His team answered our every call and enquiry and presented our home to potential buyers utilizing a professional stager and a skilled photographer. His 30+ years of sales results speak for themselves. Johnny Ussery truly is that real estate agent who meets and exceeds the expectations of his clients. Johnny gives his clients up close and personal communication, commitment and experience. When I think of Johnny, this is what I think of…

  • experience
  • professional
  • trustworthy
  • positive
  • honest
  • off the chart people skills

You can rest assured – Johnny’s got this.

Jeff & Darlene Cranston

Johnny is professional, kind, and committed to selling your house. He was so helpful to us (first time home sellers) and our home sold in one weekend. I would highly recommend Johnny to sell your home!

Forrest and Tonya Dyar

Rarely will you find a person more endearing, honest and positive than Johnny Ussery. Johnny is a joy to work with and he excels at customer service, attention to detail, and acting with integrity. We worked with Johnny twice over the last year – and we highly recommend Johnny Ussery for your real estate needs in the Low Country.

Will and Sherri Hutter

Johnny is a hardworking realtor who works on your behalf, whether you are selling or buying. We were involved in selling into a depressed lot market, but Johnny diligently pursued potential buyers, which resulted in a successful sale.

Jim and Nancy Johns

Johnny Ussery not only marketed and sold our home, but became a good friend in the effort. A true professional and gentleman. If you are interested in property in the Lowcountry, you can’t do better than Johnny Ussery and his talented and pleasant staff.

Paul and Carolyn Scanlan

Johnny…you are AWESOME!  Thank you for your leading us through the entire process.  We were thrilled at the insight you provided every single step and your team was thorough!

Scott and Ashley Beebe

We used Johnny last year to search the Bluffton/Hilton Head Island area. We took some time to narrow it down (3 trips up from Florida spaced months apart). He was accommodating and always had exactly what we wanted. He is well known around the area, and I don’t think we could have had a better experience. He juggled three simultaneous closings to insure we got the property we wanted at a price that was truly unbelievable. If you find a better agent I’d love to meet them, I don’t think it’s possible. Thanks Johnny, will be seeing you again if I ever have to Sell or Buy in this area.

Kirt and Andie Lindemann

I worked with Johnny and his team to sell a residential lot. He and his team were a pleasure to work with. Effortless listing process, proactive communication, experienced and expert negotiation advice, extensive financial resource advice and seamless transition from agreed to settlement to closing.

Stephen Kloth

Johnny and his assistants are amazing to work with. Johnny helped us price our home competitively, marketed our home beautifully with exceptional photos and brochures. When we ended up with 2 offers Johnny negotiated expertly and we ultimately sold our home above asking price.

Jim and Sally Fulp

I have used Johnny for all my buys and sells in the Bluffton, SC area. Johnny is a very honest, sincere individual and very good at what he does and went above and beyond in our recent transaction in Belfair. I would highly recommend Johnny for his integrity and friendship.

Taylor Metcalfe

Johnny Ussery is an outstanding realtor, and it was a pleasure working with him and his staff while he marketed and sold our home in Bluffton in record time. His marketing skills are exceptional — bringing in a professional interior designer to walk through the house to make suggestions to better stage the property, and requesting photographs of the house at dusk to provide a “wow” factor for internet photos. After hurricane Matthew hit the area in early October, we were surprised that we had two offers within a month or so. Johnny was always available to answer questions, address concerns, and discuss strategy. We felt so fortunate to have him and his team working for us. As a result of his many years of real estate experience in the Hilton Head area, he brings an exceptional level of knowledge of the local real estate market.

Bill and Maryellen Wells

We bought our property from Johnny in 1999. We found him to be knowledgeable, honest, and very efficient. We think very highly of the Ussery Group.

Irvin & Doris Cohen

Marjorie and I first met Johnny in 1991 when he helped us select a homesite in Colleton River. Subsequently, we purchased a homesite and built a home in Belfair, as well as property in Berkeley Hall and Hampton Lake. We trust Johnny and his knowledge of the local real estate market and highly recommend him.

Bob and Marjorie Daniels

The Ussery Group is experts in real estate in Belfair, Berkeley Hall, Colleton River, Oldfield and Palmetto Bluff

Johnny provided a great professional service to us in how he approached the sale of our home. He was very visible and in touch with us throughout the process. He provided a professional designer to help with the staging of the house before it was listed for showings. Johnny has remarkable integrity. In the forty four years in living on Hilton Head and Bluffton, he is one of the best.

Wayne and Swanie Smith

With his extensive background in Lowcountry and Hilton Head real estate, Johnny took the time to listen to our needs as new home buyers and also showed us a variety of property options in the area. Johnny is a true real estate professional and will help you to find the home of your dreams!

Alyssa Klein

No one better represents the welcoming face of the Hilton Head/Bluffton real estate market than Johnny Ussery and his family. Nearly 14 years ago when Jo Ellen and I made the decision to make Belfair our retirement home, we gave Johnny our proxy to handle the purchase of two properties and the subsequent sale of one of them. What’s noteworthy is that this was all done remotely and without a hitch while we were living in Beijing, China. Our interests in these matters could not have been more fairly, honestly and competently represented had we relied on someone from our own family to do these transactions. But that’s how Johnny, John and all the Usserys make their clients feel: like part of the family. Very simple. We’ve moved all over the world and sold many homes. There is none better than Johnny Ussery. Period. This was the third piece of property sold by Johnny on our behalf.

Phil and Jo Ellen Essman

Johnny is one of the most honest individuals I have ever met!!! His knowledge, experience and personality make him the best real estate person if you want results with integrity!!! As an example Johnny gave us comparables and suggested a listing price. “If you list at my recommended price you will most likely sell your home faster and within 5% of your asking price.” We took Johnny’s advice and we sold the house within 6 months and we were within the 5% threshold of the asking price. If you want results with integrity Johhny Ussery is your man!!

Gary and Roberta Wright

A true professional in every way. We had an “unfortunate” contract that fell through but thanks to his diligence we were able to secure a new contact/sale. It was a pleasure to work with him.

Andy and Denise Hobbie

We have not hesitated to refer our friends and acquaintances to Johnny. The feedback from these people has been very positive and has actually resulted in him finding a new home for our friends.

Bud & Gina Anderson

Johnny provided invaluable knowledge of the local market every step of the way – from listing through closing. I truly couldn’t recommend him highly enough – a class act all the way.

Rich and Judy Ducci

Johnny sold us our lot in a golf course community in 1998. Then business took us to Texas. When we were ready to return to the Lowcountry in 2014, Johnny was our first call. No longer golfers, we wanted a specific type of property in a specific development. Johnny and his team did hours of research for us…even knocking on doors to identify prospective sellers. Then he gave us an entire weekend when we flew in to shop. He protected our interests in negotiating good, fair terms. Johnny and his team then worked with inspectors, service providers, realtors, lawyers, and mortgage bankers as our personal representative in the long-distance closing from Texas. We’ve dealt with many realtors in our various relocations over the years. No one can came close to Johnny’s service…his professionalism.

Tom and Laurie Burke

Johnny facilitated the sale of our home in Bluffton SC. I could not be more impressed with his abilities and highly recommend his services. His professionalism, market knowledge and communication skills were top notch. Also, his team was very helpful! Thank you, Johnny and the Ussery Group Team.

David and Carol Hicks

Thomas Maybank is a true professional. He was my counselor while acting as the re-sale agent of my property in Palmetto Bluff. I felt that he was always acting on my behalf and anything Thomas says is presented openly and honestly. The Ussery Group, Charter One Realty has scored a major coup adding Thomas to their firm. I recommend him without any hesitation.

Jim Buck

Michael Haire was great to work with in buying a home at Palmetto Bluff (PB). He asked questions and listened well to what we were looking for, and then showed us options that met or exceeded our expectations. His sense of humor and friendly side-kick Kona made the buying process a joy. Michael was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable and he made times available to meet with us on short notice with our tight travel schedule. We love our new PB home and would highly recommend Michael for your Lowcountry real estate needs.

Bill and Deb Horst

As one of the original members of the Palmetto Bluff real estate team and the longest serving member of that team, few if any know Palmetto Bluff and Palmetto Bluff real estate as well as Keene Reese. We surely benefitted from his depth of knowledge and excellent relationships when we purchased and developed our Palmetto Bluff homesite. Keene’s wonderful personality and superior character added to our very favorable experience. We certainly intend to involve Keene in our next Low Country transaction.

Melanie and Lyles Glenn

We purchased our house at Palmetto Bluff eight years ago with the help of Thomas Maybank. He has been a dear friend ever since. His knowledge of PB and the area is unsurpassed and as we are not full-time residents, we rely on him often. His real estate experience and guidance helped us find the perfect home at Palmetto Bluff. When we looked at houses for sale on a whim eight years ago, we didn’t expect to find such a magical place. Buying our house was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Thanks for everything, Thomas!

David and Geri Greenberg

It is rare in today’s world that we have the privilege of working with a realtor with as much honesty and integrity as Keene. We worked with Keene to find the perfect building lot on Palmetto Bluff and he exceeded our expectations. Very informative, no pressure and excellent service.

Richard and Judy Cedrone

We have worked with Michael Haire on three property transactions. He is by far the most professional, helpful real estate professional we have ever encountered. He has earned our trust and proven himself to be an invaluable partner. We strongly recommend anyone looking for a high quality real estate professional to select Michael to help them with their real estate needs.

Chris and Sara Dubie

We had the privilege dealing with Thomas Maybank over the course of last 10 years and found him to be a consummate real estate professional who has exhibited the following traits which has earned great confidence with us:

– Great knowledge of Palmetto Bluff real estate and transaction history
– Excellent communication skills
– Sense of urgency in responding to inquiries
– Finally, what sets him apart from other real estate agents is his utmost integrity – which is very important to us.

We will be happy to recommend Thomas to anyone who has real estate needs in Bluffton area as we have done with many of our friends.

Jamie and Henry Horowitz

Keene was a tremendous resource who we relied upon to help us acquire an amazing property in Palmetto Bluff. His guidance and insights were invaluable, a true professional.

Denise Loft and Brian Culbert

We wandered into Michael Haire’s office unannounced and without any plan to leave California and move to Palmetto Bluff. Fast forward just a few months, and we were back for a “visit”. Michael’s knowledge of the community and his ability to assess and respond to what we liked and didn’t like as we toured homes made the buying experience easy. His dry sense of humor made it fun. With his help, we found the perfect home and closed escrow painlessly, despite doing so long distance. He is a consummate professional, a great guy and the best broker we’ve ever worked with anywhere.

Carol and Harlan Wendell

We visited Palmetto Bluff for an afternoon in the winter of 2011. While our children played at the treehouse across from RT’s, we met Thomas and his wife, Liz. Thomas and I stayed in contact and a few months later he helped us find the perfect lot for our family in South Wilson. Over the years we have become great friends with the Maybank’s; we think the world of them and their children. We have heard it said, “it is much easier to do a good deal when you are dealing with a good person.” Accordingly, we would highly recommend Thomas and his team to anyone considering a new home in the lowcountry.

Kris and Matt Kovalcik

We bought a lot in River Road (Palmetto Bluff) and just couldn’t come to grips with leaving Cincinnati, so after 1 1/2 years, we decided to sell it. Within 5 weeks, Thomas had 2 firm offers and we sold it for more than we paid for it! That’s all you have to know to understand Thomas’ abilities – plus he’s a really nice guy! He always makes himself available to answer any questions and is very patient. We would definitely recommend Charter One and Thomas!
