Mike Roach began in Real Estate in 1988 and quickly proved himself to be an outstanding salesman. His experience began in on-site sales at a development in the Washington, DC, area and the Governor’s Club in Chapel Hill, NC. In 1991, he was afforded the opportunity to return to Upstate South Carolina working with three developments on Lake Keowee and was the top sales agent for two years.
This success led him to The Cliffs Communities where he was the top sales agent for six straight years before opening Top Guns Realty with his brother Matt on April Fools’ Day 1998. When asked why he got out of the on-site sales game, his response was, “I was looking for something that had some permanence. My family and I were tired of moving around and found the Upstate of South Carolina to be the place where we wanted to spend the rest of our lives.
The only way to stay here was to move into the general real estate market.” Since that move, the team of Mike and Matt Roach have been responsible for the sale of hundreds of millions of dollars in real estate on Lake Keowee!
Matt Roach began in real estate in 1992 on beautiful Lake Keowee. After a couple of years learning the business, he followed his brother Mike to The Cliffs Communities. Then in 1994 he moved into sales management at a golf course community in Spartanburg County called the Links O’ Tryon. After successfully re-energizing that community, he was offered a position with Prudential Burroughs & Chapin in Myrtle Beach selling golf course and waterway condominiums.
In 1997, he received a call from Mike asking if he wanted to buy an existing real estate company and return to the Upstate of South Carolina. Citing a need for more permanence in his life, he decided that the challenge would be welcome. So in 1998 on April Fools’ Day, they opened Top Guns Realty. The team has received numerous national awards for their marketing and sales production expertise and accomplishments; steering their small company into the top 2% of all ERA franchises internationally.
In 2008 they sold their ERA franchise in an effort to focus exclusively on sales opportunities on pristine Lake Keowee, thereby taking full advantage of their combined 40 plus years of Lake Keowee waterfront sales experience.
