"We are thrilled to announce the opening of The Exchange Co.,” said Carter Rowson, founding partner and broker in charge. “As longtime Charleston residents and seasoned real estate professionals, we’re proud of the lifelong relationships we’ve created throughout the years, as well as the high level of service we have provided. It’s our hope that clients will continue to see us as navigators and trusted advisors in the Charleston market, and we look forward to incorporating them into The Exchange Co. family.”
