"A Tradition of Personal Service"
Pam Bishop personifies the Golden Rule: Treat people how you want to be treated. This REALTOR® of Distinction not only has the personality to succeed in real estate, but her life and work experiences set her apart from other real estate professionals.
Pam is family and community oriented, which any client would recognize as a major attribute in the real estate business. She was born in Georgia and raised in Florida, where her family has been in the real estate since the 1952. While attending Reinhardt College, she met her husband, Bob, of 36 years. For the first 25 years of marriage, she was a stay-at-home mom for her three children, and she is now enjoying her wonderful two grandchildren, anticipating the arrival of a third grandchild. During various stages of her children’s lives, the family moved nine times and this type of life experience has helped Pam appreciate her clients’ inevitable stress.
Pam has lived in Mount Pleasant since 1986 and feels blessed to have her family living in the Charleston area. She is an active member of St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Mount Pleasant, involved in the welcome team, children’s ministry, and wedding guild. For two years, Pam also participated in the Avon Breast Cancer three-day walk to help raise money to fight breast cancer.
Pam’s work experience, credentials and distinctions prove her to be an outstanding agent. Two years after entering the profession in 1989 under another agent, Pam ventured out on her own, and has continuously added to her professional repertoire including being an Accredited Buyers Representative, Certified Buyers Representative, and Certified Residential Specialist. Her accomplishments are numerous, including being an East Cooper Top Producer since 1992, and earning a position as Executive Council for the Longpoint office. Pam also serves on the Membership Committee for the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS®, and was just named a director of the organization.
How does a person know that a real estate agent will be top-notch from the beginning? Excellent follow-through. Essentially, Pam feels it’s important to get information quickly for her clients and to return phone calls the same day they come. Because of her work history and her community involvement, she has a great command of the profession and her clients depend on her for more than just real estate advice. A recent client returned to Pam for six separate real estate transactions, saying, in the end that if there was a way to clone Pam, it should be done. Being new to the area, this client called on Pam for vital information for his family.
“I realize that many times I’m the only real local contact a client has,” explains Pam. “I can get clients in touch with great people, from hair stylists to babysitters.” This type of personalized attention, knowledge, and dependability is certainly invaluable to folks new to an area. Pam’s philosophy of empathy shines through as she states, “I understand that selling or buying a home is the biggest transaction people make. I’ve been there many times, while having a busy life raising a family, and I do the best I can to ensure smooth transitions for my customers.”
