Lee & Associates continues its expansion in Charleston with the acquisition of The Barkley Co.

The four-member team of real estate professionals with Barkley joined Lee & Associates and will expand brokerage offerings for the company. J. Miles Barkley, founder, will join Lee & Associates as a principal.

“Miles’ reputation in Charleston’s real estate community is stellar, and his involvement in the community speaks volumes of who he is,” said Robert H. Nuttall Jr., principal of Lee & Associates Charleston. “His addition, and the members of his team, will have an immediate and long-term impact on this office and our clients.”

In February, Lee & Associates Charleston opened after Nuttall other principals switched affiliations from Anchor Commercial.

At the time, Nuttall said there were no immediate plans for local growth in the company and the switch was to give the company access to tools, listings and information on a national scale. Barkley’s prior work with Nuttall and the company’s wider recognition led him to accept the acquisition.

“The Lee model offers a bigger footprint nationally and regionally and was a big reason why I made this move,” Barkley said. “This name recognition and company structure, coupled with an improving economy and the momentum Charleston is experiencing, makes this the right time to join forces with Lee & Associates Charleston and the best opportunity for me and my team to grow.”

Henry B. Fishburne, William H. Fishburne and Wendy Mulqueen also will be joining Lee & Associates.

Lee & Associates also has another South Carolina location in Greenville at 105 E. North St., Suite 200, Greenville.
