Let me help you find a home in My Charleston!

A native of North Carolina, Gayle has enjoyed the Lowcountry life since she first began visiting the area in the early eighties.  A career opportunity eventually brought her to the Charleston region on a full-time basis ten years ago; she was hired as the Director of Advertising for The Post and Courier.  Her joy of sharing her passion for the Lowcountry combined with her unique market knowledge of the Charleston region serve as a benefit when helping to advise new clients about a move.

Gayle graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English.  She worked in numerous management positions in the publishing industry spanning over thirty years.  As a REALTOR, Gayle holds certifications and advanced training as a Certified Negotiation Expert, a Certified International Property Specialist, an Accredited Buyers’ Representative and she holds a Transnational Referral Certification.  She is also a graduate of Leadership Charleston, a member of the National Association of REALTORS and a member of the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS.

Gayle loves meeting new people and helping them through the excitement of buying or selling their home.  Here are a few references from her clients, they speak from experience:


"Gayle is an outstanding real estate agent. She made the entire process of buying a home enjoyable. I had very specific criteria, along with a desire to move forward quickly. Gayle has an expert eye and valuable experience when it comes to matching properties to a home buyer. She responded promptly to every request and stayed at least one step ahead of me, thinking of things I would need before I thought of them. She was truly a partner and valuable advisor throughout the process. I don't recommend buying a house without Gayle."

- Cherie Wilson Blackburn


“Gayle is awesome! She goes above and beyond to get your house sold. I have had the experience of two real estate transactions with her. Both times she took as much stress off of me as possible. I recommend her without reservation!"

- Jessica Lyn Keller


 "My experience with Gayle Smith and Carolina One was phenomenal. I was in contact with Gayle months before moving to SC and Gayle was there with me every step of the way. She was very knowledgeable about the market here was very helpful in choosing the right place for me. There is not one I would have changed when I was working with Gayle. Thank you so much for all the help and guidance in my purchase of my new home. Best experience ever."

- Therese Marie Montes


 "Gayle was a joy to work with throughout the entire process. Gail (my wife) and I established a strong relationship with her from day number one. Our buying process was a bit longer than normal as when we first met with Gayle, we were very unsure of when we would be moving to the area. This did not phase Gayle in the least as she spent the time required to ensure we were comfortable and happy. She also went beyond the normal expected range of duties by helping us to arrange vendors to help us with the new purchase. We would highly recommend Gayle to others.”

- David H. Shepard


 "Working with Gayle Smith, was an absolute pleasure. She made the process of selling our home and finding a new home easy and stress-free, she was very informative, knowledgeable and she was always there for us, we've never met a realtor quite like her. She's the best there is, and we consider her a good friend !!!!!"

Phil & Karen Husenitza

"This is my second time working with Gayle and let me tell you she went over and beyond my expectations. Her attention to detail can't be beat. She gives the same service no matter if your purchase is large or small, you don't get that from just anybody. I feel like when I'm working with Gayle everyone is getting a fair deal. The bonus is she's fun!!!"

- Garrison Scott Cloud

"Gayle was very organized and made the process as easy as possible with clear and regular communication. She also created a relaxed, no pressure environment where I could be honest about what I wanted in a home and then she found it for me. "

- Autumn Tau Phillips


"I enthusiastically recommend Gayle to all my family and friends.  I am very pleased with the way the transaction was conducted.  Throughout the entire process, Gayle ensured my home buying experience was as seamless as possible.  Her enthusiasm is infectious; her attention to detail is to be emulated, her research and knowledge of the market is to be commended.  Gayle brought nothing less than her "A" game during the negotiation process.  Her professionalism and attentiveness to our wants and needs were met and this will be an experience I will always remember.  I would definitely seek out Gayle Smith for future property endeavors."

- Alberto Oliveras

"First off, congratulations!  I now realize buying a house is a big deal and I'm happy for you.
Let me tell you about my experience with Gayle.  She was professional from day one, setting up meetings with me from the start to make sure I understood the process of buying a home from the very beginning.  She gave me the leads for mortgage shopping, including the very helpful banker that I chose to work with.  Throughout the entire process, Gayle was very responsive and honest.  She is proactive in her approach, asking the questions and following through with the answers.  She gave expert advice and delivered what she promised.  During our closing, the lawyer said ‘this will be my best closing of the year.’ Simply put, she's awesome and you should jump at the chance to work with her!"

- Mary Baulch


"We just bought a FARM!!!! Gayle was the best! She helped keep us going and got the deal closed. She went way above for us as I’m sure she will for you. It’s just her nature and her work ethic! If you are looking to purchase or sell property let Gayle be your agent!"
