Paul’s career in real estate began in 1980 when he began to buy properties as investments. This venture has proven to be very successful and Paul now owns and manages over 400 residential and commercial properties in South Carolina. In addition to real estate, Paul takes a lot of pride in his community and has been actively involved in restoring properties to become more attractive and making them vital parts of the county. In 2006 he was presented with the Community Improvement Award by the Chamber of Commerce for his work at a subsidized apartment complex.

Agent Bio:

Shannon was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. It was here where she attended schools in Charleston County and first settled when she married her high school sweetheart. They moved to Cottageville, where they still reside and are raising their two beautiful daughters. Shannon pursued a career with Elite Property Management in Summerville, SC. Within two months, she knew this was a career field meant for her. She decided to further her education and received her license as a South Carolina Real Estate Property Manager in 1995. In 2004, Shannon was given an opportunity to become the property manager for a private real estate investor in Walterboro, SC. At the time the investor’s name held little significance for her since she was not a native of Walterboro. However, after only one day on the job, she learned that working as Paul Walker’s Real Estate Assistant was going to be a challenge, but definitely one she was ready for. Paul had hired her to manage his personal real estate, which he had spent 30 years building. This was a huge compliment and a career boost for Shannon. In 2005, she had the desire to continue her education and obtained her South Carolina Real Estate License, and joined RE/MAX Southern Real Estate, where Paul was the broker-in charge. Shannon has set the bar very high for what is expected of an agent. In 2005 She become a S.C. REALTOR, Foreclosure Specialist in Colleton County in 2005, Certified Distressed Property Expert in 2011, received Certificate of Achievement through Leadership Colleton in 2011, Licensed S.C. Commercial Real Estate Agent in 2013, REO Certified in 2016, Awarded in the Executive Club through RE/MAX in 2016 and 2017. Shannon’s latest award and most honored, was when She was Voted Best Real Estate Agent in 2017 from the Press and Standard, Readers’ Choice Award. Shannon plans to continue to grow and thrive in real estate and will continue to provide exceptional customer/client service, with her personal touch in an effort to achieve longevity in the real estate industry.

Agent Bio:

Eric Jerome Campbell attended the public schools in Colleton County and graduated from Walterboro High School in 1992. He then left for Fort Jackson to begin basic training for the Army National Guard where he served until January of 2001. After his departure from the National Guard, Eric briefly attended Orangeburg Technical College and became a licensed insurance agent opening his own agency, “Eric J. Campbell Agency.” After the establishment and success of his agency, Eric decided to step forth boldly with a new message in his life, sell his insurance business and become a Certified Senior Advisor. Still standing, he also became a South Carolina Licensed Real Estate Agent. To this day his hobby is buying and selling real estate as an investor.

Still weathering the storm of transformation in his life, Eric declares new thinking; new business, new patterns. He learned much more about God’s goodness and grace while dealing with much despair. After becoming an ordained Pastor in 1999, Eric J. Campbell later founded “New Covenant Word for Life Ministries,” a non-denominational church in 2004. The revelation and acceptance to forget former things of the past, God set forth the next division of change. Realizing there is a season for everything, the current name of the church was changed to “Word for Life Ministries,” located in Walterboro, SC and continues to be a fast growing, impactful ministry. Eric understands that no matter how great a season is, the next one will come. With continued obedience, restoration to new positions and renewed sensibility continues to evolve, Eric is also a hospice liaison with Amedisys Hospice in his community.

Eric has two children, Jessica and Eric Justin Campbell. He has also returned to school where he is majoring in Psychology with an emphasis in Christian counseling.

This book is his first with many more to come.
