The foresight of Michael O'Shaughnessy and Patty Scarafile recognized the need to incorporate a new construction and site sales component to their number one general brokerage company in 1994. With that in mind, Sunday Lempesis joined Carolina One Real Estate and formed the first successful New Homes Division in the area.
Sunday is a native of Charleston, SC and has been in the real estate business since 1979, where she specialized in site sales and development, new home sales and marketing, condominiums and apartment conversions as well as a general knowledge of the resort and general brokerage aspects of real estate. She, along with Penny Davis grew the division into the largest and most professional new homes group.
Being a female in a male-oriented profession, Sunday has the unique ability to understand not only the development process, but more importantly the sales and marketing of the properties. According to Sunday, "The new home and development industry is an always-changing, unique combination of knowledge and gut, which I find infinitely challenging".
In 2006, the New Homes Division closed over 1000 units for a closed volume of $ 202,341,000. Sunday, recognizing the continued future growth potential for the New Homes Division and it's need to better service their clients, incorporated a Management Team to handle the day to day business operations and merged with the new construction sales team of Will Jenkinson, Brian Mahoney and Kris Kordonowy. Today, our Management Team consists of myself, Will, Kris, Mark Kerce and Jason Harper and we are positioned to service the many unique aspects of the new homes sales, marketing and positioning of regional and local builders and master-planned communities from concept to completion.
This synergy, combined with the strength of almost 1000 of the area's most professional general brokerage associates elevate us to be the only team in town to represent quality neighborhoods, builders and developers.
