Misti Cox, Associate Broker and Realtor at King & Society, loves everything about being a real estate agent in the Tri-county — the gorgeous homes, the community events and the people. “I genuinely enjoy showing people, especially newcomers, around the different neighborhoods and all the awesome things to do in our area,” said Cox, who has an education and background in business. “Summers in Mount Pleasant are the best, with opportunities for boating, all the different beaches—whether it’s Sullivan’s Island or Isle of Palms—concerts under the bridge and Party at the Point. It’s wonderful to be able to get people excited to live here.” As for sellers, Cox makes it her top priority to ensure her clients receive the best price for their house and are happy with the outcome. “Above all, I want to make sure everything goes smoothly for my clients,” she said. Many of those seamless outcomes are a result of King & Society’s abundance of services. The firm partners with lenders, home insurance providers and all the professionals that clients need to buy or sell a home. “Overall, King & Society is a one-stop shop. We have a construction sector, vacation rentals, long-term rentals — we do it all!” said Cox. Cox has been with the brokerage since its inception in 2015 and is now one of their seasoned agents. She’s dynamic and knowledgeable about the area, specifically Mount Pleasant and West Ashley. It’s a pleasure speaking with her, a professional who finds a way to keep the sometimes tedious task of house-hunting fun. For Cox, however, her favorite aspect of the job is building relationships. “I really like getting to know clients and keeping in touch,” she said, noting that more often than not, her business relationships blossom into lasting friendships with customers she serves again and again. As for the Charleston market, Cox pointed out it’s “absolutely booming, even more so than this time last year, which is surprising during such an unprecedented time as the coronavirus. “I get that question a lot — What do you think will happen to the market during COVID? — If anything, it has gotten even stronger,” she added. What’s Cox’s recommendation if you’re considering a move? “I wouldn’t hesitate to buy now, whether you’re looking in Mount Pleasant or anywhere else in the Charleston area. The market is on fire, and inventory is really low, so it’s a great time to sell as well,” she said.
