About Your Columbia, SC, Real Estate Agents

Locations in Columbia, SC, where our real estate agents work



Some people ask "Where is that accent from?" when they meet Rosemarie.  I was born and raised in a small town in northern Germany near the Baltic Sea. My mother grew up west of the Cologne in the Eifel and my father in northern Germany near Hamburg. After a divorce my Mom raised my brother and me working hard 2-3 jobs to support us. She installed traditional values in us which I carried on to our daughters Kirstin and Corinne. My Mom reminded reminded me often that "It is better to try and fail then to not to have tried at all" and a few other phrases along these lines. My Mom's words stayed with me always. "You can do anything if you have to, but you can do everything with love" she used to say.

I taught our daughters the same thing and said "never to give up in anything you believe in".
My background is Risk Management. I worked in the National and Private Health Insurance in Germany, banks in Switzerland and the US, hotels in England and German. I was a stay-at-home Mom raising our children and supporting Peter’s career in Hotel Management. By no he is a retired Hotel Executive well known all over the world.

Kirstin teamed up me in 1996 after she graduated from USC, BS Science Business Administration, Accounting. You will find us to be straight forward, hard working, dedicated,  thorough, open and honest real estate agents in Columbia, SC. You can expect us to tell it to you how it is and not what you want to hear. We keep resale for you in mind making sure that you will find the right house and investment that you make home for you and your family. It is our goal is to help buyers and sellers achieve their goals and dreams.  We are compassionate about what we do.

Persistence and CAN-DO attitude has helped us to be successful to this day. We will put that to work for our clients. I taught our daughters the same. Kirstin, a USC Graduate with a BS in Business Administration, Accounting, volunteered for many committees from the Local Board of Realtors to the Home Builders Association. Kirstin gained experience when working as Accountant & other businesses while going to high school & USC.

Corinne graduated from the University of South Carolina USC, a Business Major, Marketing Minor, May 2005.  She has worked @ Merrill Lynch since 2001 as Registered Senior Client Associate, loving what she does very well. She loves her Yorkie, Yoga, snow boarding, going on Lake Murray or to the pool.

I love to spend time with our families, baking, cooking, flower gardening, beach, travelling, USC Football. I love nature and may point out occasionally wild turkeys, a blue heron, deer, even a fox while showing property.

Kirstin loves to travel, bike, snow board and ski around  Colorado and other places. She learned to ski in Wheaton , Ill. of all places . She is full of love and kindness, loves nature, music, and is always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone. She loves her Yorkie Bojo who smiles at you, (brother of Zeuss). Both have personalities that keep you smiling. We get to dog sit.
