Carriage Properties is pleased to welcome James Maybank as our newest agent. As a native Charlestonian, James has a unique perspective on its transformation from a sleepy southern town to the most desirable location in the U.S. James attended Woodberry Forest School in Virginia before his love for the Lowcountry brought him home to the College of Charleston. After school, James sold real estate for a few years before taking the opportunity to run his own business and opening Midtown Bar and Grill on Upper King Street and eventually a suite of ancillary businesses. He and his partners are credited as the pioneers and trend setters of the upper king hospitality district.
After starting a family, James was ready for a change of pace and reestablished himself in the real estate business, where his vast knowledge of trends and locations make him an asset to both locals and newcomers alike. James’ previous business experience has also provided him with a keen insight as to the needs of clients looking for commercial opportunities in Charleston, specifically those interested in a hospitality based venture. James lives downtown with his wife and two children. When not at work he can be found in the woods or on the water enjoying all that the Lowcountry has to offer.
