About Us

In 1991 Bob Mandel and Dan Kelly came together to celebrate Dan celebrating the sale of his business. Both were Management consultants, and each had some experience in developing property. Bob asked Dan if he was going to retire, and Dan said “no way.” Bob then said, “So what do you want to do now.” Like many entrepreneurs he had considered other things but didn’t nail down what it was that would be the next chapter. He said I thought about Real Estate in Columbia where commissions were typically 7%. Next question Bob asked, “Do you want to do something about that”. The birth of Real Estate Advocates now shifted from an idea to a reality.

Since that time thousands of homes have been sold and millions in commissions saved. The company follows their leader in doing real estate where our principles become before our profits. We say and do what we say for our clients. Now, with 25 Agents and Brokers we continue to be the oldest and largest alternative commission program in the state. One size does not fit all, and we tailor the commissions and our involvement to the needs of our clients. We became one of the early Buyer’s Agents in S.C. and have a rebate program that often gives an incentive to our buyers to assist them in their real estate transactions up to $5,000. Yes, we pay you to buy a home.
