Michael FurlongContact This Agent
Michael’s love affair with the Low Country began years ago while on a vacation away from his Corporate HR career in New York. Walking along the coast he realized the sunsets are a completely different color here and couldn’t stay away! He loves the varying shades of the seagrass and listening to the call of the cicadas. Life is just better here, so he decided to purchase a vacation home as an investment. Michael’s trips to Charleston became more frequent and he became involved with many of the festivals and local organizations, and as his life in the area grew, he decided to make the move to full-time resident. He settled in a new home with a marsh view so his family could enjoy watching the wood storks fish, and their dog Dolly hunt for frogs (her favorite past time). Later, Michael decided to become the owner and caretaker of a downtown historic Charleston single and fully restored her to her glory!
Michael has extensive experience in contractual agreements and has been an active investor and property owner for many years, which helps him anticipate and understand the many challenges clients may face. Michael’s exceptional customer service skills, keen eye for potential, and elevated sense of style make him a strong partner when selling a property, looking for a vacation property or a forever home. His high level of integrity, polished professionalism, negotiating skills, attention to detail, and sense of urgency will make this very important process an easy one.
Michael believes relationships are more important than transactions and his deep roots in the community are an asset to sellers looking to sell a home quickly or assisting people transitioning to the area. He is always “in the know” of the fun happenings around town, new restaurant openings and many ways to get involved within the community. More than showing or selling properties, Michael will bring you to a local oyster roast, upcoming Steeplechase, a performance at Fresh Fields, or the Spoleto Festival, making you more than a client – you’re a friend and neighbor.
When not selling real estate, Michael enjoys hosting cooking classes and dinner parties, bike riding, listening to country music (Dolly Parton is an all-time favorite!), designing gardens, and visiting the many historic landmarks in the city. This is the most beautiful spot in the world, and he hopes to share it with you.
We are so grateful to have worked with Michael on the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home. He secured a full price offer on our sale in 2 hours! He was excessively patient with us during our house hunting experience, and was incredibly knowledgeable about the home buying process. He was available at all hours to answer questions or follow up on deliverables. I highly recommend Michael if you’re embarking on a real estate venture!

From the beginning, Michael provided clarity, professionalism, educated advice, integrity and strong communication skills. In the competitive Charleston market, these attributes were paramount for me to have in a realtor. Michael provided several properties to me during the searching process and when we found the right one, he assisted with every step. He was always available to answer my questions and acted on my behalf while I was unable to be present in the area. Michael provided me with a level of comfort and trust that made it possible to purchase my first property. It would be a pleasure to work with him again and I would recommend his services to anyone looking for property in the Lowcountry.
