About Freeman

Real estate agent and broker serving Charlotte, Pineville, Rock Hill, and surrounding areas in North and South Carolina

Hi, I'm Freeman. I'd love to help you buy or sell your Carolina home with confidence.

After 16 successful years as a pharmaceutical sales representative, I began my real estate career in 2009 at the height of the recession.

Now, beginning a career in any industry during that industry’s darkest hour may sound crazy. But this transition was about more than just a new job. The decision was inspired by two personal experiences and a belief that I still hold today. 

The first experience was when my wife and I bought our first home. We worked with a real estate professional, but felt a little lost the whole time. No one teaches you how to buy a home, so we were always playing catch-up. 

Seven years later, we hired a professional again to sell our home. I’ll spare you the details, but suffice it to say the whole transaction was less than successful. 

This led me to a belief that is the bedrock of my business today:

People deserve a real estate agent they can trust. 

I wanted to be that agent for my friends and neighbors in North and South Carolina. With my wife’s encouragement, I got my real estate license and immediately fell in love with every aspect of the real estate profession. 

Several year and more than $14 million worth of real estate transactions later, I still work tirelessly to be the agent my clients can trust to give them the best experience and help them negotiate the best deals. 

I’m a first and foremost a Christian and a man of faith. This is the foundation my business. Making and negotiating deals for people drives me to be the best and sets me apart from others in my field. My clients realize how my experience and expertise serves to protect their interests against inexperienced agents. They consider me the best because I truly care about them and the decisions they make.

Four words: Been there. Done that.

I’ve been where you are. I’ve experienced the frustrations, complications, and empty promises that often come with buying and selling a home. Even better, I’ve taken what I learned from those experiences and now use those lessons (and many more) to give my clients the best experience and the best deals. 

But I won’t try to sell you on me. Let’s have a real conversation and see if we’re a good fit! 

Whether you’re buying or selling, you have some big decisions ahead of you. The first big decision is: who will trust to walk with you through this process? If I have the pleasure of working with you, here’s what you can expect: 

I will…

  1. Negotiate in your best interest. Sellers, I’ll help you understand which offer is best and why. Buyers, I’ll help you structure a competitive offer without overpaying. 
  2. Help you stay in budget. Sellers, this means I’ll help you know which repairs need to be made and which don’t. Buyers, this means we’ll keep your payments comfortable. 
  3. Protect your investment. Sellers, this means getting you the best return on your investment. We’ll sell your house as quickly as possible, for as much money as possible. Buyers, this means getting a home warranty. I negotiate this into every deal because it protects you from many of the expensive repairs that can surprise you during the first year of ownership. 


"Freeman was able to negotiate my offer and win over 5 other offers on my home in the same day. He also worked to get me the best options for repairs on he HVAC which resulted in a price reduction of $6500!

He worked well in handling the inspections, dealing with the lender, listing agent, and the attorney's office to ensure that my process was as hassle-free as possible. And most of all I got the home that I wanted with the backyard that I wanted for my grandson."
