The Foster Smith Team - Carolina One Real Estate

Foster Smith - Realtor

I have enjoyed helping people relocate to the Lowcountry of South Carolina for most of my life. My father was a partner in one of the first insurance and real estate companies in Summerville, SC, so it is truly "in my blood."

I have been a realtor for over 20 years and have lived in Summerville for the majority of my life. I specialize in assisting and educating my clients on this beautiful area so they can make the wisest decision for the future of their family and their economic future.  Whether it is selling their current home, or helping them move into a new home, seeing my clients thrive and feel successful is the ultimate goal.

Lori Dunn - Realtor

Lori Dunn is a vital part of the Foster Smith Team. Lori is a licensed realtor who has been working with me since 2007. With attention to detail, Lori ensures all of the transactions that pass through the office are handled promptly and competently. She works with me to make sure every client gets to the closing table with the least amount of stress and the greatest amount of satisfaction.

Lori has lived in the Summerville area with her husband and daughter for over 10 years. Her first hand experience with the school system and living in Summerville as a mom help buyers quickly acclimate to the area and learn the ins and outs of living in Summerville.

Christal (Smith) deBoer- Marketing Assistant

Christal has worked with me since 2003. As my first born, she has grown up in the business and has been a licensed realtor in South Carolina and Michigan.
Christal works as the marketing assistant for the Foster Smith Team. She handles the marketing and internet side of my business. Her responsibilities include my website, professional blog, and social media presence.   By having a dedicated marketing assistant, all of my listings are showcased on every media platform possible including Youtube, Google Plus, Facebook, Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.comTwitter and many more. Christal keeps ranking high in the search engines which results in more eyes seeing my clients' homes and out of town buyers contacting our office and seeing our listings. Christal is a vital reason our listings get more exposure than other homes on the market.

Why Work with the Foster Smith Team?

Still want to know more about what makes up Foster Smith and why should you let me help me in your next move?
  • I was the South Carolina State diving champion for 4 years. The Silver Medalist for the entire East Coast.

  • I have been a Christian missionary in El Paso, Texas.
  • I am the father of three girls, one boy, and have been married for over 35 years to my wife Patricia.

  • I have also been blessed with a two wonderful son-in-laws, a daughter-in-law and six beautiful grandchildren!
  • I play golf, but can barely break 100.
  • However, I can still hit 22 out of 25 clay pigeons on the skeet range.

What do all these accomplishments have in common?

They make up Foster Smith.

  • The dedication it takes to be a champion athlete I bring to my business.
  • The determination it takes to be a mountain climber I put to work for you.
  • The understanding it takes to be a missionary brings compassion to every meeting.
  • The joy my family gives me brings stability into my life.
  • The poor golf game shows I spend more time working for you than playing around. 
  • Yet my shooting ability shows that I can still hit the target.

This mix and balance allows me to be of keener service to you in your Summerville & Charleston Real Estate needs.

If you need to sell or buy I will put my whole self into the transaction.
