Kathy and Ken are a great team, each with their own strengths that complement one another very well. They are EXTREMELY patient and go out of their way to help. There is zero pressure when working with them and their advice on the local area is spot on.

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Prosperity, SC.
We met Ken & Kathy Mason (The Mason Team) several years ago when we began looking for a retirement home on Lake Murray in South Carolina. Initially we were a long way from making a purchase and were just gathering information on the lake and surrounding areas. The Mason’s started showing us homes on the lake in the spring of 2016. Even though we were not local, they kept us informed of every home being offered in our price range through their online collaboration center website. When we were able to visit the lake, Ken and Kathy always made time to set up as many homes as we wanted to see. They never imposed any pressure to buy, they just kept it friendly and kept showing us more homes. They have lived on the lake for many years and had great advice and answers to the many questions we asked. The Mason Team is unique in that they not only bring a deep understanding of local real estate, but Ken also has a building/construction background that was extremely helpful.
In December 2018, we found a home and made our first offer--it was on a house for sale by owner. The offer was rejected and the negotiations broke down. We would have lost the house if it were not for the The Mason Team. Kathy worked hard to educate the seller on how our offer was created; she provided the seller with comps that were based on other comparable selling prices and not the “asking” prices that the seller was referencing. With patience and persistence, Kathy negotiated a price that we could all agree on and the sale was made. Without the experience and persistence of the Mason’s, the sale would have most likely been lost.
Since the sale, we have continued to receive support and assistance from Ken and Kathy. We relied heavily on them through the contracting and closing process. They helped us with the home inspections, negotiation of repairable items, contact with local utilities, the lake authority, appraisals and eventually the closing.
If anyone is looking for realtor in the Lake Murray area, we would highly recommend The Mason Team. They were friendly, knowledgeable and always professional. The Mason Team helped us find the home we were hoping to find when we were ready.

I have purchased two properties through the Masons and currently have one property listed for sale. Their no pressure approach and endless hours of patience in showing me any property that I asked to see were two key points that make them a great team. Both are very knowledgeable of the local area and if they don't know the answer they will research until the answer is obtained. With this being the first selling experience, I'm anxious to experience the same positive results and smooth transaction that they always seem to be able to coordinate.

As a real estate investor, my experiences with the Mason Team have been and continue to be outstanding. Kathy and Ken have brought to my attention numerous areas/items further enhancing the sellabilty of a property.
Their proactive approach has resulted, on average, in a contract with a pre approved buyer within 3 weeks of listing!

Kathy and Ken are a great team. We moved from out of state and they made the transaction as smooth as possible! They are very quick to respond and know the area very well.

We dealt with both Kathy and Ken while searching for our lakehouse. They made sure they understood what we were looking for and did not try to push us into something beyond our budget. They were patient and always willing to show us another home we had seen or heard about. Even when we wanted to see one house 4 different times, they were gracious and understanding. I would highly recommend them. They know the area and really work for their clients.

Great real-estate partners!
Kathy & Ken have worked with us for over 4 years as our work relocation had changed directions and our geographic location perimeters adjusted.
Their lake expertise was very useful to our decision making process and now they manage rental property for us.
We appreciate their professionalism and courteous work ethic!

The Mason’s were able to shepherd us through the process of selling a property on Lake Murray. They were our on-site experts in bringing the home to market. Their guidance helped us decide what work was necessary, and who to hire to get the job done. They knew whom to call and what authorities to contact to get all the permits. They know how to help buyers find financing for the mobile homes common to the area. Without their professional, cheerful and determined attitude, we would still be mired in debates about how to get a fair price for the property. With gratitude to the Mason’s, we wish the new owners joy in their new place.

We had a complicated sale with multiple, out-of-state sellers, who didn't always agree and a mobile home title that had to be reissued. The Mason Team went above and beyond to overcome the difficulties. They arranged for the construction of a porch/stairs to meet code, made sure the home & yard were ready for viewing, got us legal expertise and contacted county officials frequently to keep the process moving. They were excellent at keeping us all informed every step of the way. They did a great job giving us advice during the negotiating process as well. Because of their 12 years of experience, we felt we were in excellent hands every step of the way.

Bought a home in 2015.
Kathy & Hen Mason are an incredible team and we feel so very fortunate to have found their website as we began our search for a property on Lake Murray. We are now living our dream in an incredible property, which was clearly superior to anything we saw over visits to 6 lakes, covering 60-70 houses.
They go to know us, then found our perfect home. Kathy provides meticulous "back office" support for every aspect of the paperwork and connections (inspections, permits, bids, mortgage brokers, lawyers, etc). Ken handles the house tours, with an encyclopedic knowledge of the lake complemented by general contractor experience which lets him see the possibilities beyond the current structure.
They're a fantastic team and are also know our friends!

Kathy and Ken are special and go above & beyond to help you with your real estate transaction. We just closed on our purchase on our place on Lake Murray and we had a lender that would make the faint of heart run to hide. Kathy stuck by our side and helped us locate and send\receive information to get us to the finish line. Simply put, if you want the BEST, you have to go with Kathy & Ken

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Gilbert, SC.
Kathy was not only our listing agent in the sale of a property for us several years ago, she, along with her husband Ken, also acted as our leasing agents while that property was not on the market. After several years of living out of state, Kathy assisted us in our search for a new home when we made the move back to our home state of SC. She is extremely efficient, knowledgeable, and responsive to her client's needs, and gives of her time and energy in a patient and caring way. We would recommend the Mason Team to anyone selling or buying in the midlands or Lake Murray area of SC.
