Nov 10, 2015 /prREACH/ -- Charter One Realty has announced that Bluffton-based Gateway Realty is merging into Charter One Realty bringing the total number of Charter One Realty office locations to 11 between Hilton Head Island, Bluffton and Okatie. This will provide real estate buyers and sellers with even greater resources when it comes to Hilton Head Island, Bluffton and Lowcountry real estate.

For more than a decade, Charter One Realty has been the top producing real estate company in the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton markets capturing an industry-leading average market share of 20 percent during that period. The addition of Gateway’s 35 experienced agents will add to what is already the most comprehensive source of listings in this market. The addition of Gateway’s four offices at the front gates of Colleton River, Belfair, Berkeley Hall and Oldfield will provide Charter One’s clients with an even wider range of convenient locations along the Hwy 278 & Hwy 170 corridors. The merger will be effective beginning January 1, 2016.

"The strong synergy between Gateway and Charter One, combined with the companies shared core values, were key factors in the decision to become a part of Charter One," says Johnny Ussery, Managing Partner at Gateway Realty, which was founded in 2001.

John Ussery also added that together with Tom Jackson, they will continue to be active partners in the new partnership where they look forward to continuing the success they have experienced on the Mainland and at our four strategic office locations at the entrance to Colleton River, Belfair, Berkeley Hall, and Oldfield. The merger will allow Gateway Realty to provide an even higher level of service to both buyer and seller clients.

Tom Reed, Partner/Broker-in-Charge at Charter One Realty, is extremely excited about Gateway Realty joining the Charter One Realty family. This is truly a win-win for both companies’ clients. Charter One’s professional agents already created great synergy in being able to pair seller clients with vast number of buyer clients which has led to the enormous success the agency have had over the years. That synergy just got magnified with Gateway’s merger and far exceeds anything any competitors can accomplish for their clients in the market.

The clients and the agents win with this merger. Culturally, this is a wonderful fit as their leadership and Charter One's leadership have similar views concerning the future direction of the real estate industry. Gateway’s client service and level of professionalism meshes perfectly with Charter One’s. By harnessing thei combined resources in local real estate, both teams are excited to be continuing their growth together.
