Betty Gales, Real Estate Consultant

Betty Gales  is the team leader of The Gales Group, powered by eXp Realty Charleston. Betty has over 25 years of real estate experience and over 1,000 satisfied clients. Betty believes strongly in the power of consistent professional training and development. Through Betty's extensive relationships with top trainers and real estate specialists, she keeps the team abreast of all the latest and greatest systems and processes. Betty works personally with each member of her team to ensure every individual has a well-rounded skill set necessary to ensure the highest level of success.

Betty Gales has achieved an exceptional record of success serving some of the most important and discerning real estate owners in the country - those in the great market of Charleston (including Mt. Pleasant, Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island and Wild Dunes) South Carolina.

Since beginning her successful Charleston Real Estate business more than 25 years ago she has sold more than 1,000 homes and netted her clients some of the highest prices ever achieved. This sales record has placed her in the top one percent of all Real Estate professionals nationwide.

Her own powerful marketing methods are so successful that they have become the model that others try to copy but can never with Betty's excellence and professionalism.

Recognized for her outstanding expertise in pricing Charleston property to sell quickly, Betty is committed to getting her clients the highest price possible. She notes, "Pricing is the most important marketing tool we have today. Any agent that overprices a property and then says they can sell it by advertising it and/or holding open houses is doing a disservice to their clients."

She continues, "There is a difference in agents. Some are active and others are passive. I take the very pro-active approach ... some may even call it aggressive," Betty says with a smile. "I seek out and find buyers for my listings by calling my vast network of past clients, interested agents and the public that I've identified as having a high potential to purchase. I spend several hours each day with my team contacting area residents and generating interest in my client's properties. Putting sellers and buyers together has become a large part of my business over the years. So much so that some people have called me 'The Charleston Matchmaker!"
