"We were impressed not only with the depth of their market knowledge and expertise but also their ability to work together with our team of a newly formed local office, Baird management and real estate division.  Frank and Drayton guided us through a very tight market environment in downtown Charleston and helped us identify the best location and negotiate optimal terms.  The Norvell team was as competent and professional as any real estate firm we’ve used anywhere."


Bill Sinsky - Facilities Director, RW Baird & Co.


"Norvell Real Estate has sold and leased hundreds and thousands of square feet for us in North and South Carolina.  Norvell began handling our Charleston portfolio in 1998 which at the time totaled around 500,000SF.  They have been an invaluable resource for us on the acquisitions/dispositions side. Frank Norvell is a seasoned professional and we rely on his honesty, guidance and business acumen."

Tim Walter - Managing Partner, Chairman, Ziff Real Estate Partners


"Frank has been a tremendous resource for us at Raymond James for over 10 years. The 30+ years of knowledge and experience that he has in the  Charleston market has been key to our long term strategic approach to growth. Frank’s judgement, reputation, and respect in the real estate community has provided partnerships that have been key for us. His attention to detail throughout the process of securing commercial real estate in several locations has been a partnership that we know we can trust and count on."

Dan Parker - Managing Director Coastal SC/NC, Raymond James


"Drayton Calmes did a first rate job of representing our organization.  Because of our ties to the Federal government, leasing office space can be a complicated process. It was beneficial to work with a company that understood our parameters and was capable of handling complex negotiations through a new lease and a renewal years later. Drayton was responsive and professional in all of our dealings. Thanks to his guidance we were able to relocate our offices to a better building while reducing overall facilities costs."

Michael E. Collins - Director, South Atlantic Fishery Management Council


"We work with talented brokers across the country; Frank Norvell is a standout.  His team led us through one of the most successful investments in our portfolio.  He presented an off-market opportunity, identified equity partners, and oversaw the lease-up process.  When we decided it was time to sell he brought us a buyer in short order and exceeded our own expectations for the entire investment.  It was a very profitable project for our company due primarily to Frank’s efforts.”


Stevens M. Sadler - Managing Director, REVA

"Norvell represents their clients fervently and diligently.  Their manner and approach makes it easier for all involved to come to a positive market-driven agreement on any given transaction.  They are very knowledgeable of their markets and use that as a core strength in crafting creative deals that address the most important issues for each side.  They have stellar reputations in the market.  We at Holder Properties have been impressed through the years with their professionalism, knowledge and diligence."
