About Christopher Barnette

Chris Barnette is one of the original founders of Southern Shores Real Estate Group and is a SC licensed builder and REALTOR®. He currently serves as President and Broker-in-Charge of Southern Shores Real Estate Group and is overseeing the business and project development for Rising Tide Homes with fellow builder and partner, Cheryl F.C. Ludlam. Chris is a graduate of The Citadel with a decade and a half years experience in the real estate industry. Chris founded Southern Shores Real Estate Group in 2006 and has since built a thriving company and personal real estate business representing sellers, buyers, and investors in both the residential and commercial sectors. Chris is exceptionally well respected in Charleston not only due to his professional track record but most importantly, his commitment to the highest ethical standards for both himself and his company. In 2015, Chris followed a long-standing dream and advanced his real estate expertise even further, earning his S.C. Residential Builder’s License. Under his leadership, Southern Shores and affiliate companies have built and renovated numerous homes throughout the Lowcountry region of South Carolina. For Chris, the process of building a home from the ground up and seeing the vision come to life is remarkable. Helping to shape the future growth of the Charleston area is another extremely rewarding part of this exciting field. But perhaps the most impactful is the opportunity to work with buyers who thought they could never own a home. To see a client's excitement as their home comes to completion is priceless. Southern Shores Real Estate Group is without a doubt a passion project for Chris. Working with buyers and sellers is not always a simple process but he takes care down to the smallest details to make sure that his clients are receiving the absolutely best home at the best price. Completing each sale with integrity a client deserves is the driving force behind every transaction. Chris currently resides in the James Island area of Charleston with his wife, Meredith, and their four children. He is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys fishing in our beautiful coastal waters!!!
