"Choosing Ole South for our family was the best choice we could have made for our first home. The agents that represent Ole South have a great knowledge about the product and always made us feel welcomed every time we came to look at "our" home. Definitely customer service had a huge impact on our decision and as well as the great quality our home possesses. The day of closing the Vice President came to our home, as well as the Ole South agent and the project manager, just to say thank you for choosing Ole South. It made us feel as though we made the right decision that day and after three years don't ever regret choosing an Ole South home."
