Garrett Rust has once again proven to be an exceptional Realtor, helping us to navigate a pretty unforgiving seller's market during a time of unprecedented change in Charleston real estate. Her knowledge of the housing markets in both locations of our local move was spot on, resulting in us getting an excellent offer on our sale and a great location and price on our purchase. Cannot provide any higher recommendation for a local realtor, she epitomizes what it means to be a great realtor with the support of a solid realty organization.Dan B

Garrett has taken care of my family for the past nine years. She is dedicated, focused, and great to be around.

Garrett is a consummate professional who works tirelessly to make sure her clients find the perfect home. We had a difficult situation in that we needed to be out of our previous home quickly in a July 2021 housing market that was unlike anyone had ever seen before, with almost no inventory to buy or to rent. Impossible, right?…not with Garrett! She expertly guided us in finding not only the right home but also the perfect mortgage folks, lawyers, and other needed professionals to make it happen, and at a time when those people were simply not available. We found, put under contract, closed on, and moved in our new home, which had multiple offers hours after hitting the market, all in less than 30 days. It was nothing short of miraculous and simply would not have happened without Garrett! Her help doesn’t stop there though, as we have called her multiple times for needed handyman and maintenance referrals. She always, always delivers. I have been honored to call Garrett my friend for nearly 40 years, and now we are also lucky to call her our realtor.Anna & Harrison M
Garrett made my house search so easy and did my homework for me, especially being out of state. She is super knowledgeable of the downtown area, location of flood zones, etc and had knowledge of my little gem before it went on the market, which was key! I would use her again and recommend Garrett to anyone looking in the Charleston area! She made it easy and seamless!Nicole M
I've known Garrett for many years, and when it came time to sell my family's Mt. Pleasant property, I immediately called Garrett. The property didn't even go on the market; she had a buyer in a matter of days! Her knowledge and professionalism in the real estate market are top notch and I'm grateful for her help through this process. She goes above and beyond for her clients.Blair S
Garrett is a seasoned professional and was indispensable in our process of finding a new home. She listened well to our needs, did thorough research, and worked with us to put together a good list of homes for us to see when we arrived. She never wasted our time. She is highly responsive, straight forward and knowledgeable.Anne J
Having worked now for over 13 years with Garrett both in the Charlotte and Charleston real estate markets, she can only be described as an absolute professional and consistently reliable. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a person that can always get the job done, the best Realtor® I, have ever worked with, hands down.Peter L
Garrett is the best! She was able I show me houses that were not even on the market and she never pushed any property just wanted to find the right one for our family not only did she get us through the closing process during a 1,000-year flood, but she has also helped with everything from finding a contractor, to a dentist, to the babysitter. I honestly cannot recommend a nicer, more knowledgeable, more easy-going real estate agent.Gina Y
Garrett was a tremendous help in selling our home. She is knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and very persistent. Garrett had my home in a bidding war within 24 hours after listing, and under contract within 48 hours after listing, $32,000 above listing price! Hire her now, no question, trust me she will get the job done for you and do it well. I can't say enough good things about Garrett. She is a pleasure to work with.Jesse S
Searching and finding a second home in the Charleston area was the most simple transaction we have ever encountered and we contribute it to Garrett Barber Rust. Her knowledge of the area, her ability to know what we were looking for that would fit what we needed as we live in LA, along with her embedded strength of market trends is the culprit as to why she is remarkable as a Real Estate Agent and Expert. We trust her so much, we bought a home sight unseen over the phone as she knew it was exactly what we needed.Cathi C
When I say Garrett goes above and beyond, I really mean it. My family and I were on vacation overseas and Garrett Rust was expecting her second child at any moment. A vacation home we were searching for went on the market and she went out of her way to take pictures and videos of the home we could not physically see due to the fact we were 5,000 miles away. We fell in love with the property and location, instantly. As soon as we came home we had our closing 2 weeks later. If the house of your dreams is out there, Garrett Rust will find it for you, hands down.Margaret & Giouse C
Garrett has represented me in both buy and sell capacity in 3 complex transactions and her knowledge and professionalism are the reasons for the successful outcome of each. She is creative and tenacious and her communication style is succinct. Her understanding of where the focus should remain throughout the buying and selling process. Made all the difference in my ability to maintain perspective when challenges arose. Garrett's decades-long success in real estate is a testament to her superb people and negotiation skills. I have recommended Garrett highly and often over the years and would not consider a real estate transaction without her. She is a true house whisperer.Paige S

Garrett scores the highest marks in all of the above. Garrett was honest, understood our needs, and provided many options. She was always available!!!!Holt D
We have bought two houses that Garrett found. She was on top of it! Both houses she went to see within the hour of it being listed. She goes above and beyond, to say the least. There is no one else I would work with.Katie B
Garrett sold a waterfront home for me that had been on the market for almost two years..... three months after she had the listing.She is tops! This home was priced at $1.6 and it had an appeal to a certain buyer. Her great attribute is total honesty and the ability to find those buyers we think are living on the moon but are really close by. She would make a great quail hunter!Humpy W
We are grateful for Garrett’s kindness; knowledge, professionalism, and follow-up as she represented us in the purchase of our new home! We highly recommend her.Alicia H
I Cannot rave enough about our real estate agent, Garret Rust!! She made the whole process of buying a home so smooth. She was there for us and was even able to get credit from the seller after an inspection, in a seller's market!! She constantly went up and bat for us, and our home value has already appreciated since the time of closing. We trust her and know she will always provide the quality, experience, and honesty that we appreciate. I can't say she's not just an agent. but a friend and an incredibly amazing person with a genuine moral compass. If you are looking for a perfect agent, you will find that in Garrett!
Garrett performed above and beyond our expectations in selling our home in less than a day for top dollar. We had multiple offers above the asking price that was already at top of our neighborhood's selling price point. She communicated with us on every aspect of the selling process and we knew everything that was going on from start to finish. Going with Garrett was the best decision my family could have made and the impact will be beneficial to us for years to come!Kenny S
