Paul Walker is a lifelong resident of Colleton County. After graduating from Walterboro High School, Paul obtained a business degree from the College of Charleston. Paul’s career in real estate began in 1980 when he purchased properties as investments. This venture proved to be very successful and he now owns and manages more than 400 residential and commercial properties in South Carolina.
In addition to real estate, Paul takes pride in his community and is actively involved in restoring properties 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. He transformed this complex from a crime zone to the beautiful Plantation Oaks Apartments, which is now the only gated community in Colleton County.
In 2004, Paul took his real estate business to the next level and bought into the RE/MAX franchise. Paul felt the national brand recognition and marketing power of RE/MAX, coupled with his extensive knowledge and experience in Lowcountry real estate, would create a powerful combination. This business venture, much like all the others in his career, has proven to be a success. RE/MAX Southern Real Estate opened in January 2005 and has been the number one real estate office in Colleton County for five consecutive years. As the broker-in-charge, Paul has hand-picked his agents to ensure that he has the best of the best working with him and representing RE/MAX.
