Meet the Team
James “Jim” D Patton » President/Owner and Broker in Charge
Jim moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Columbia, South Carolina in 1971, with his wife and daughter, upon
entering the US Air Force, stationed at Shaw Air Force Base on active duty until 1973. During his term of
duty, he attended the University of South Carolina.
After leaving the service, he returned to Atlanta and soon found that he missed the pace of life South
Carolina offered. He returned in 1976, accepted a position with a local property management firm, which went
back to 1912, received his first Real Estate license and attended several courses through the Institute of
Real Estate Management, IREM. He is a life member of The American Business Club, AMBUCS, a past Boy Scout
leader, and is the father of four.
Peggy C Patton » Senior Vice President and Human Resource Manager
Peg wears many hats, yes, you guessed it, she is Jim’s wife, and in addition to helping with various and sundry tasks she acts as a logistics consultant for the company.
She relocated to Columbia in 1983 and has an extensive background in the legal and banking industries. Perhaps that explains why she’s such a stickler for detail.
She enjoys golfing, Gamecock football and basketball, reading and gardening. They are pet parents to 2 beautiful Shih Tzu.

Olga was born in Cuba but has been in the US since 1971 and currently resides in Columbia. She has over 11 years experience with both single family and multi-family property management.

Olga enjoys spending time with her children and pets Sheba and Snow.
Hannah Kinsey » Assistant Property Manager
Hannah was born and raised in Cayce SC, where she graduated from Brookland-Cayce High school. She attended the University of South Carolina and began her career in property management in April of 2018. Her favorite part of working in property management is that no day is the same.
Hannah enjoys spending her free time with her daughter and her sphynx cat. She can often be found at the beach.
Kira L. Skelton » Executive Assistant/Bookkeeper
Kira was born and raised in Cuba. She has lived in the United States since 2002, living in Florida most of her teenage and adult life; she recently moved to Columbia SC for a more peaceful and southern lifestyle.

Jim & Peggy’s Two Children
We would like for you to meet our two little furbabies.
Ziggy Bear (left) was a rescue puppy who became a member of the Patton family in August 2013. He has a great personality; he is friendly, loving and is so much fun; Zig loves to play and cuddle. When he walks, he prances. His DNA shows he is part Shih Tzu and Havanese. He is adorable!
Next to Zig is our beautiful little girl Noriee Marie. She and Zig are best buds…
Noiree is a Shih Tzu, born April 24, 2018 and she only knows two speeds, full speed ahead or a dead stop. She loves to play, go for rides in the car, and watch TV; her favorites are golf, the dog shows, and cartoons. So yes, we have fallen head over heels in love with her. She’s our angel!
