Charleston is one of the best places in the country to explore real estate by bicycle, (It’s flat with great weather!) and often, it’s the best way to get around. Imagine being able to see everything around you completely and with new eyes. On a bike, you gain an understanding of the small, but important details about the neighborhood you’ll live in.
From atop your seat, you can venture into places inaccessible by car, you can see the spires of our many church steeples and are able to stop and smell the roses in one of Charleston’s secret gardens.
To see the bikes we use or inquire in person, please stop by The Real Estate Studio at 214 King St in historic downtown Charleston. Of course your calls and emails are always welcome! 843-412-3333 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise keep your eyes peeled for these signs on the bikes around town.

Biking is purely optional. If you prefer to tour homes by car, or if you are physically unable to ride a bicycle, there is no pressure.
We provide you with Electra Townie bikes, which are easy to use and fun to ride, or you can bring your own. We’ll go at your pace, and you’ll learn not only about the homes you see, but the neighborhoods you want to live in. So if you are already an avid cyclist, or someone who just wants to have a little fun, why not find a home by bike? You’ll be amazed at the whole new perspective….
Some Charleston area neighborhoods that are great for biking include: Downtown, Wagener Terrace, Riverland Terrace in James Island, Byrnes Down in West Ashley, The Old Village and I’ON in Mount Pleasant and any of the islands – Folly Beach, Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island.
