CHRIS BRAND FOUNDER, BROKER, OWNER and CEO
Chris Brand received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a minor in business administration in 1997 from the University of Coastal Carolina. A few years later Chris decided to go into real estate as he was passionate both about serving the public and the world of business. After a few years of selling real estate Chris had a vision of doing business his own way without the limitations of corporate bureaucracy. In 2004 he began his own real estate company. In 2007 he brought in a few agents by allowing agents more flexibility in what they could offer to the public. In 2008 he created a first of its kind “100” percent commission plan that was not only considered progressive, but very radical at this time. Chris received a great deal of push-back from brokers who felt he was a threat and even some real estate agents who felt what he was he was offering was to good to be true. All said Chris knew for agents to really be competitive in the emerging technological and global based economy so they could be an asset to the public, financial considerations and the proper resources were paramount, and he continued pushing forward.
Over this same period Chris Brand was married in May of 2005, he had had his first son in 2006 and his second one in 2009. Sadly, in 2016 after many years of shaking things up in the real estate world his marriage did not work out and Chris agreed to sell this business which is one of the larger real estate brokerages in the Charleston Metropolitan area where he had lived with his wife and children. While Chris hated to give up what he had worked so hard to build, he knew change was inevitable and that in order to see his vision through a larger economies of scale requiring a larger geographical area was needed for him to continue working towards his passion of providing his agents with a system allowing for a better way to buy and sell.
As of April 2016, on the day Chris Brand’s divorce was finalized Agent Group Realty was born, creating the beginning of yet another chapter.
Agent Group Realty currently has more than 200 agents though Chris would like to keep growing the brokerage well beyond this number.
While Chris is no longer married when he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his children and is considered a family man by people who know him well.
