About Steve Banis

When I originally began investing in Real Estate, I wasn’t a real estate agent. And I still do not list houses as an agent! No, I’m not proposing that I list your home, or have you sign some kind of agency agreement. My involvement with you and your property is for our own investment portfolio.…. not the score-sheet of a Broker. My background includes that of being an executive for several Fortune 500 companies since 1968, an owner of real estate since 1975, a businessman in Boston, MA and Charleston, SC. I am a VETERAN of THE UNITED STATES ARMY, beginning my Service career January 1964, in Columbia, SC on Tank Hill at Ft. Jackson. I have been up and down the ladder in my business as well as my personal life - therefore I am well qualified to understand the various situations and challenges of the homeowners we meet. We can help provide solutions to various real estate challenges and situations. My passion is to assist in the sale and purchase of real estate. The rest of this report tells you how our company, CASH HOMEBUYERS of SOUTH CAROLINA, LLC., will assist you by purchasing your home.
