I have worked with the Bauknight & Babb Team since 2009 and I am excited about continuing the relationship as they launch Roadstead Real Estate Advisors Upstate.  They have helped me with numerous real estate transactions over the years, including as a tenant rep, leasing agent, land acquisitions for Newburg Investment projects and the purchase of investment properties.

Their professionalism and knowledge of the market is second to none and I look forward to working with the Roadstead Team for years to come.

After interviewing several other teams in Spartanburg, we chose the Bauknight & Babb team to help us lease our office space in the Historic Montgomery Building in downtown Spartanburg. In a relatively short time, the team was able to land an anchor tenant for our office space, which led to us having a fully leased building. Their attention to detail, responsiveness and knowledge of the market led to our decision….and it was clearly the right decision. I am especially excited to see them join one of the finest boutique firms in Charleston, Roadstead Real Estate Advisors, in opening the Upstate office. I have known Geoff Groat, the founder, for over a decade, and I know that they will be successful in making Roadstead Real Estate Advisors Upstate a premier firm in the Upstate.

As one of the fastest-growing local economies in the nation, Spartanburg is attracting more attention from developers and site selectors by the day. The addition of Roadstead Real Estate Advisors Upstate is a great indication of just how dynamic and attractive Spartanburg’s, and the Upstate’s, commercial real estate market has become. From their development expertise to their knowledge of the Spartanburg/Upstate market, Roadstead’s leadership checks every box, and I can’t wait to see their impact.
