Debi Lafayette


Debi has lived in the Carolinas for the past 15 years and loves it here! She has experience in every facet of the home buying experience, having started in the transaction closing services, moving on to selling in model homes, as well as managing sales teams and communities for both public and private builders. Her last position with a builder was as Regional Sales Director in the Carolinas, but Debi decided that she missed the personal fulfillment of working one-on-one.

Mallory Warner


After spending years working for the #1 builder in America, Mallory is so excited to be able to now use her background and knowledge to offer her clients the best all-inclusive home buying experience! In 2016, after graduating from Appalachian State University with a degree in Accounting, she moved to Columbia for an opportunity to work for the Nation’s Largest Builder. She was looking for a career that emphasized building personal relationships and helping people achieve their goals and dreams.

Chris Warner


Growing up with a Realtor© for a parent, it’s safe to say that real estate has been a mainstay in Chris’s life for as long as he can remember. Some of his fondest childhood memories took place in model homes where his mom was helping people find their perfect home. While other kids in his neighborhood were outside playing, he and his siblings could often be found in a model home talking with eager couples and families in an effort to buy his mom some time.
