Tell Us Your Story

Robin was an invaluable resource and so pleasant to work with!

! She came highly recommended and I now know why. She worked hard and tirelessly to find my disabled husband and I just the right home, and then got us a very attractive deal. When it is time to move to a retirement home, I hope she is still here to help us !

We recently had the pleasure of working with Jill Calderone when looking for our home.

From the first day, Jill was extremely responsive to our needs and was always available when we needed her to be.We were first time home buyers in South Carolina and didn’t know much about this area. She also informed me about the problems of the houses that I found. Every time we viewed a new property Jill would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. Jill also led us through negotiation to get to a price we were comfortable with. Anyone looking to purchase a home would be lucky to work with Jill!

“Yvonne, Sally and I would like to thank you for your friendship, your professionalism, your expertise and most of all your knowledge of the real estate market.

Relocating from Ohio to South Carolina is a huge change for us and with your guidance, you made looking for a new place for us to call home very pleasant and comforting. Your dedication to us as clients is next to none. We are happy to call you our friend. ” ~Bill and Sally Gluvna

Melissa Dille, Now that we have finally dug out the stationary from the hundreds of boxes, we wanted to let you know how grateful and thankful we are for everything you've done for us. Not only were you patient and thoughtful for months on end, you were insightful, protective and beyond generous once we found a home. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better friend. It also helps that you are a great realtor. I don't know how we could possibly say "thank you" enough. You have a standing invitation over at our home. We love you and we thank you!


Congratulations to First Time Home Buyer Chris Young!

!! Yvonne was able to find the perfect home for Chris and Mortgage Options found the perfect loan. The future looks great for Chris and his new pad!

Jill, ​My husband and I cannot thank you enough for handling the purchase of our beautiful lake Murray Home.

You handled everything from our first meeting all the way through the closing with knowledge and professionalism. Being out of State during the process and not knowing anything or what questions to ask about the Lake was a little stressful but you handled every little detail for us and I really appreciate it. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends in need of a home! ​BY the way, I love our gift from you, it was very thoughtful! Our grandchildren have already visited a couple of times and are making beautiful memories! Just what I wanted! THANK YOU Beth Hunt

I've sold 5 houses and Melissa Dille by far was the best realtor I've ever worked with.


Melissa Dille was much more than a realtor!

She became a friend! Melissa sent us all the new homes that hit the market which both matched our criteria and was in our budget. We ultimately decided to build after being beat out of a few offers on homes and Melissa continued to help us throughout that entire process! If you are looking for a realtor you can trust, look no further! Melissa is simply the best!

We wanted to send you a HUGE thank you.

Our daughter moved into her first home and we couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. From the first time we met, until she moved into her home, you were patient and extremely thorough, from getting her financed, to viewing all those homes and then welcoming her into her new home. I remember some of your first words were, "I love a first-time home buyer" and you certainly showed our daughter exactly that. She was excited about buying a new home and you directed her to homes that fit her needs and financial capability and got her into her home within 2 months. We couldn't have asked for a more competent and pleasurable person to work with. Thanks again for all you've done for us and we look forward to working with you again in the future. We will send pictures soon. Regards, Paula Gaston

Thank you so much for all of your help with the purchase of our new home.

You definitely went above and beyond in helping us. Moving from out-of-state was definitely a challenge, but you helped every step of the way. If we hear of anyone else that is in need of a realtor we will give them your name and contact info!! Hope to see you soon!

Karen Troidl was absolutely amazing with our family.

My wife and I were looking to move our family across the country, and we were so lost until we met Karen. Karen was very open, patient, and never pushy about getting us a house. We were finally able to decide on an area where we wanted to move. Once we found the area, we were able to locate a house that had just started construction. Karen drove to the construction site for us to take pictures and ensure the location was family-friendly. With Karen's assistance, we were able to go under contract with our house. During the time our house was under contract, which was for ~8 months, Karen checked on our house weekly, providing pictures and updates. Without Karen's willingness and attention to detail on our home, we would have been completely lost. In addition to everything Karen did for us, she even took the time to do our pre-walk due to some personal scheduling issues. During the pre-walk, Karen's attention to detail was more than I expected. She was able to identify and document items that I wouldn't have even checked. I would HIGHLY recommend Karen Troidl to anyone who's in need of a home. You won't be disappointed with her services. Thank you again, Karen, for everything!

So glad that Jill reached out to us!

We were out of state home buyers looking to purchase in South Carolina. After an initial trip searching with other agents and returning home really bummed, we began to look at more listings in the Midlands area and thankfully Jill contacted us. She wasted no time and began asking us exactly what we were looking for, price range, amenities etc. then promptly sent us listings. We immediately booked a flight to return quickly, as there were several homes we wanted to see. With Jill’s graciousness, experience, great communication, and listening skills, she found us the perfect home. We immediately made an offer and after one counter, we went into contract. Jill stayed close to the process, informing us of everything that was happening with who, what, when, how, and where things were at. She provided us with mortgage lenders, home inspectors and other professionals who would all be integral to helping us along the way. We learned from Jill and she was open enough to learn from us as we were both experienced home buyers looking for our final home. We closed on time per the negotiations and things fell into place wonderfully. We can’t say enough positive words about working with Jill, and highly recommend her no matter whether a buyer is in or out of state. Jill was there for us at every moment and we can’t thank her enough for her guidance, tenacity, and warm southern hospitality. Finally, a few adjectives come to mind to describe Jill: energetic, interested, motivated, professional, and most of all she went above and beyond to research properties that fit! We close by saying, Thanks Jill, we love our new home! Don and Cynthia

We recently had the pleasure to work with Jill Calderone from Southern Shores real estate - Midlands, for the purchase of our very first new build experience, and our move from North Carolina to South Carolina.

Jill is honest and professional and worked hard to make sure we were happy with our purchase. The past nine months have been full of trials and tribulations and Jill has gone above and beyond for us. She was always available whether text or phone calls to answer any questions that came up anytime day or night. We will absolutely recommend and refer her to family and friends. We are fortunate and feel blessed to have met Jill and have her guide and assist us during this stressful and happy time in our lives! We like to consider her a new friend here in South Carolina!! rojo713 251 Laurelbrook Dr, Chapin, SC 29036

Jill - My experience working with you was the best.

You were very patient, focused and I always felt like you had my best interest in mind. This was the 9th time I have purchased a home and I can’t remember a smoother process. I will definitely keep you in mind and recommend you every chance I get. Thanks for taking the time to do it right! Kind regards, TStanek

Dear Melissa, What a journey this has been!

I am not going to lie, I'm not sure I ever want to purchase a foreclosed home again, but if we do, we will contact you. The ups and downs, hoops and hurdles to get this thing through were quite the adventures. Thank you for sticking with it and making our dreams a reality. It is going to be so wonderful making the home ours and living in the area. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. You truly are a fabulous real estate professional and person. We'll see you in the neighborhood and let you know how the renovations go! The journey continues to the next phase now, I guess. Wishing you all the best! Sincerely, Mary and Trey

Worked with Melissa Dille when I purchased a piece of commercial property this year, I couldn’t be happier with the professionalism that she showed.

Found me the perfect place for the right price and was able to answer any questions that came up. She was available when I needed her and went the extra mile for me. I cannot express how much I enjoyed working with her. I highly recommend her for your purchases. L.M. Moore

Jill recently helped us find a house for our son to live in during his college years.

We had a very specific location the house needed to be in, but didn't know a lot about the market there. Jill helped us research true comps in the area in order to properly value the homes we were interested in before considering our offers. When Jill shows a home, it's like having a "pre-inspector" there--she is very thorough and leaves no stone unturned while showing the property each time and during the walk-through. Jill follows up on every detail in a timely manner. Working with Jill, you will know you have an agent on your side who wants to find you the perfect property for your needs. She is a dedicated and trusted agent I would recommend to any family member or friend. Jennifer Perritt

Melissa Dille worked above and beyond for me!

I wouldn't have made it through buying my home without her. She is by far someone who will go the extra mile for you. I can't thank her enough for putting up with me. She is by far the best and I would recommend her to everyone! She truly has your best interest when purchasing a home or property! Thanks again!


“Yvonne was great to work with.

She instantly understood what we were looking for in a home and worked very hard to make sure we found it. She always went out of her way to accommodate our schedules, and kept us updated on every step of the process. We ended up getting an amazing deal on a house that we love, and would not have been able to do it without Yvonne!” ~ Emma W.

Melissa Dille not only helped us find our starter home, but also our forever home!

She sold our house in 3 days and we closed on our new house in just over a month! She is the best! We love her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a home!


Jill was the best realtor my husband Gary and I ever had!

Extremely patient, knowledgeable and understanding of our needs in the purchase of a lake home. When we asked questions and she didn't know the answer, she did research and got back to us right away. Her skills in the negotiations were excellent and worked hard for us to get your goal price. I would absolutely recommend her not just as a realtor but a friend! My family is very grateful she was on our team!

Melissa carefully listened to what we were looking for in our new home and she found it.

Her knowledge of the area, pricing and getting us closed on our new home couldn't have been easier. She was always available when I called and never missed a beat throughout the purchasing process. Melissa was an absolute joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Melissa Dille sold our home in Lugoff in record time and was able to get us the best selling price.

I highly recommend Melissa.
