FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – RE/MAX of Florence is moving to the Kress Building in downtown Florence, confirmed Adam Crosson, the broker and owner of the realty company.

The new RE/MAX location will sit right above Town Hall to a much bigger office space, Crosson said. They are currently in the process of reviewing conceptual plans and designs. The office will be an open concept hybrid with some private offices and an internet café. They are still in the beginning stages of planning and design, but Crosson said they hope to be moved in by January.

The company is planning to operate a total of 40 agents there, along with 10 to 12 administrative and other staff. They expect to add five to 10 new agents in the first year, along with an in-house marketing firm and two loan originators, Crosson said.

RE/MAX is moving from its currently location at Cherokee Road, near Five Points and Irby Street, to the new location. Crosson said he decided to move to be a part of the “renaissance in downtown.” He said he is excited to be at the forefront of it, and he believes the new location will attract agents. One agent is already involved in the Kress Building project, and that is what got the wheels turning on the office relocation.

Right now, the houses under $250,000 are moving quickly in Florence, but they are still dealing with a lack of good inventory, Crosson said. New construction is moving at that price point, mostly for first-time homebuyers. Lots of people from up north start to look in Florence in February, Crosson said, often buying in cash. Both taxes and cost of living are low in the area.
