Born in Charleston, Anne Edson has lived in or near the city for most of her life. She graduated Cum Laude at the University of South Carolina and managed an interior design retail store on King Street. She then served as Director of Membership Sales at The Breakers Club in Palm Beach, Florida for ten years until returning to Charleston in 2006. Her sales experience with high caliber products and services provided an excellent foundation for her real estate career.
The decision to be a part of the team at Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's International Realty was easy, as the organizational culture was aligned with hers. Anne believes that honesty and hard work forge long-term relationships and that the first transaction is an opportunity to earn trust. Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's International Realty advocates serving customers for life, a privilege that is earned through performance and results. Rather than only following instructions, Anne also adds value by listening and making recommendations based on her intimate understanding of the market.
Anne is a well respected and familiar presence in the community downtown as an active member of St. Phillips Church, and a Room Mother at Ashley Hall School for girls. Anne is married with two children who both attend Ashley Hall. She lives in a renovated house South of Broad and enjoys contributing to the community both personally and professionally.

Laurie and I began looking for a home in Charleston in October of 2013. We were convinced it was the right city but we were not very familiar with the real estate market. Anne Edson was assigned to help us with our search. As a lifetime local, Anne was very insightful and patient as we searched every area in the Charleston region. While some of the beach communities were very enticing, we became convinced that we would be much happier in the heart of the city. During our three day visit, we did not find a home that met our needs but Anne did find us a terrific downtown waterfront rental for the winter/spring of 2013. This would provide a great opportunity to learn more about Charleston and continue our search.
We returned in February 2014 for our 3 month rental which further convinced us that this was the place to be and helped us understand why a more serious financial commitment was in our best interest. Anne continued to identify buying opportunities during our stay and was able to get us early access to a 15 year old house South of Broad which was constructed to fit the historical pattern on the community. We were sold immediately. Made an offer in a couple of days and closed in May 2014.
It is two seasons later and we continue to be extremely happy with our purchase and the life it has provided us in the heart of beautiful Charleston. We look forward to the many more years to come. We also feel that our investment is very sound at a time when it is difficult to find good investments. We have also remained in close contact with Anne and her husband Fred who have helped to acclimate to the community in many ways.
We would strongly recommend Anne as your realtor. She is enthusiastic, qualified, patient and a lot of fun to be around. We could not ask for anything more in a realtor. Please reach out if you have any questions.

I would highly recommend Anne as a realtor. I met Anne several months ago. As a real estate investor, when I meet a Realtor I always ask them to keep me in mind if they see something interesting. After 3 1/2 years in Charleston, Anne was the first realtor to actually follow up. She sent me information on a property which I put an offer on. While in my due diligence period, Anne was there every step of the way. She found different subcontractors, negotiated a better price, and researched different options for the property. While I did not ultimately make that purchase, I was so impressed with Anne I knew she would be my Charleston Realtor from then on. Please understand that my mother was a successful broker in San Francisco, my husband is a developer and I have a lot of Realtor friends so I have a very high standard. I recently decided to sell a duplex I renovated last year. Of course I listed it with Anne. She went above and beyond dealing with tenants, meeting with inspectors, coordinating the marketing materials, etc. Not only did I receive a good offer within a couple of weeks but Anne was able to get a strong back-up offer too. I could go on and on but I am out of town and writing on my phone.
Anne has represented my wife and me on three residential real estate transactions in Charleston over the last two and a half years. I am a commercial real estate broker, so I would characterize myself as a particularly discerning client.
Anne has done a great job for us on each transaction. She is thorough, honest and dedicated to her client's goals.
