SVN | BlackStream, a fast-growing commercial real estate firm headquartered in Greenville, SC has opened its new Charleston, South Carolina office on James Island with Chip Limehouse and Tom Hartnett as Co-Managing Directors. Both Limehouse and Hartnett have long and successful histories in Charleston real estate. Chip has been associated with Limehouse Properties, a leader in hospitality and parking garages.

BlackStream is also the Christie’s international affiliate in Greenville and Asheville, North Carolina. BlackStream’s other offices are in Columbia, Charlotte, Asheville, as well as its headquarter city. The company was the recipient of South Carolina’s Top Work Places earlier this year and has won several CoStar Power Broker awards as a top performing commercial real estate firm.
Founded in 2014, BlackStream is one of the fastest growing real estate firms in the Carolinas, having grown from one person to over 150 today. “We are very excited to be working with Chip and Tom in Charleston, “says Alex Dmyterko, BlackStream’s President. “With its rapid growth and job creation, it is an area that our customers and clients have been asking us to serve.
