The Charleston Trident Association of Realtors has named David Kent 2008 Realtor of the year and Chris Fraser 2008 commercial Realtor of the year.

Fraser, who has held his broker’s license since 1985 and designation as a certified commercial investment member since 1989, is co-founder of the commercial firm Grubb & Ellis Barkley Fraser. He currently serves as the firm’s president and managing principal.

In the past 10 years, Fraser has developed more than $100 million in office, hospitality and sports facilities, and he has leased hundreds of thousands of square feet of office space.

“Chris received multiple enthusiastic nominations from our membership,” said Chris Cunniffe, Commercial Investment Division president for the Realtors association. “Considering his broad experience in commercial real estate, his many years of service to our association and his example of leadership in numerous public service roles, he was the natural choice to be our 2008 commercial realtor of the year.” 

Fraser is involved in the community as well as the real estate industry. Last year, he was elected to the Charleston County School Board for the West Ashley seat, and he has served as chairman of the S.C. Housing Authority and the Education Foundation.

Kent is broker in charge and co-owner of The Real Buyer’s Agent in Charleston.

“David consistently provides his clients with fervent representation and superior service. He doesn’t sell homes; he helps people buy homes,” said Roxanna Morey, marketing manager for The Real Buyer’s Agent. “The trust he builds with his clients is demonstrated by the company’s repeat business and regular client referrals.”

Kent was recently named to the 2009 National Association of Realtors Leadership Academy and was appointed to the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council Advisory Panel.

Locally, he is involved in the “Reading with Realtors” program at James Simons Elementary School and volunteers at the Crisis Ministries Homeless Shelter.

He has worked for land development companies and managed projects on Kiawah Island and the Isle of Palms, and in Mount Pleasant and North Charleston.
