My clients say I am the hardest working agent they have ever encountered!
Luxury comes at all price points
Lisa Patterson's true love has always been historic homes, architecture and antiques. As a child in Lexington, Virginia, Lisa gained valuable experience through her father, who was heavily involved in the real estate business, including renovations and real estate auctions. After college she purchased the first historic property of her own, an early 18th century home in Lexington. The rest, as they say, is history.
Lisa feels fortunate to call the historic South of Broad district her home and her workplace. She has over 30 years of experience and began her real estate career as an investor. Lisa and her husband have restored many historic homes downtown. Her friends often quip, "Antiques or homes, if it is dusted, busted or rusted, Lisa will buy it and restore it.” Proof of this passion is evident in the fact that Lisa has restored over 35 historic properties in her career. She soon discovered a knack for really getting to know her clients' passions, needs, and lifestyle, and matching them with the right house quickly. Her clients consistently say that she is the hardest working real estate professional they have ever met.
Lisa has been awarded Realtor of Distinction over multiple years in the Charleston market. She is a member of the Top Producer’s Club, Charleston Trident Association of Realtors, the South Carolina Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.
Lisa's favorite organization in town is the Historic Charleston Foundation. She volunteers regularly on their semi-annual tours of beautiful antebellum Charleston homes in the Spring and Fall and was awarded the 2019 Kitty Robinson Homeowner of the Year Award. Lisa is also a member of The Charleston Preservation Society. Currently, she and her husband, Kip, live in a historic kitchen house (c. 1777), South of Broad. They have 4 grown children and two grandsons. When she is not working with clients, you will find Lisa walking the streets of downtown Charleston with her standard poodle, Sophia, gardening, attending an auction, or looking for another antique or real estate project.
Being in the Estate Sales industry I work with a lot of realtors. Lisa is one of the best realtors in Charleston. She understands the importance in developing a strong relationship with both the seller and the buyer. Her natural ability to create trusting relationships with her clients and within the Charleston business community are impressive. If you’re looking for a new home in Charleston and want to work with a knowledgeable and expert realtor than give Lisa a call. She’s great! You won’t be disappointed!Nancy
Lisa is extremely knowledgeable and a true professional. She was very helpful in discussing the different neighborhoods downtown and why I might enjoy one versus the other. She took me to a wide variety of homes to help me decide on what would be best for us. She has lived in Charleston for many years and has extensive experience in buying, selling and renovating historical homes.D. Ohstrom
I would highly recommend Lisa Patterson to anyone buying in downtown Charleston as well as the surrounding areas. She is at the top of her game knowing every property even properties that are coming on the market. She is well connected in town and knows who might be moving and selling because she has lived in downtown Charleston for a very long time and knows everyone. Great to have someone like that down here where the best properties can fly out fast and her knowledge of the area and its homes is especially helpful when you are coming here from another state. Lisa is smart and strong and a ton of fun to drive around town with looking at properties! After you buy a house with Lisa she will be your agent and friend for life!L. McCracken
Totally professional. No excuses, she delivers. Always ahead of the game, always arrives early, and takes extra steps to make it easier for me (the seller). Lisa sought the right buyers by hosting events that brought people from all over Charleston, NY and other states. Sold in two weeks. True quality.Dr. Leone

Lisa provided excellent service in her representation of us as Sellers. She is very knowledgeable. She personally attended every showing and worked very hard for us. I can't imagine that one could find a better Realtor in the Charleston area.3 Council
