Meet The Peter Kouten Team

The Peter Kouten Team of Carolina One Real Estate is a full service Real Estate Team with a trust, communication and performance guarantee. As Charleston natives, College of Charleston and Citadel graduates, they are dedicated to helping buyers, sellers and investors with their Real Estate needs.

The Peter Kouten Team consistently ranks in the top 1% of the Charleston MLS. We have the experience to help you buy your first home or relocate to the area, and know our local market like the back of our hands. Peter and John are born and raised "Charlestonians." The relationships we’ve maintained throughout the years with friends and other real estate agents enable us to learn about many properties before they ever hit the market. We have had many closings over the last few years where we have found our buyer clients their new home before it ever hit the MLS. Having access to these types of deals is essential in a sellers market in which Charleston is today.

What do we love about living in Charleston? Where do we start; food, history, parks, beaches, and the vibe of the city that you will undoubtedly experience on your first visit to the area. We would love to help YOU find your perfect home and neighborhood in Charleston, SC!
