Michael B. Carithers, Owner
Michael’s motto, “your needs are our goals” has not only helped him focus on his goals and to excel in the real estate industry, but it has also motivated him to become the man he is today. As the proud owner, he’s established Carithers Real Estate as a reliable and trustworthy business, not only because of his strong ideals, but also because of his unwavering dedication to his clients. These same principles hold true at Integrity Property Management.
Ever since he was young, Michael has given 110%. Since his dad was already in real estate, he was in position to learn the business quickly. He began mowing lawns at age 12 and then started building houses for his dad while in high school.Read More
He attended Anderson College and the College of Charleston and went on to become an appraiser’s apprentice. All of this, of course, did not happen overnight. It was his attitude and his love of the field of real estate that allowed him to pursue his career.
After spending time in residential sales, he realized that his calling was in the commercial field, so he made the switch and has been working in it ever since. Today, Carithers Real Estate is involved in many aspects of real estate, including site location, build-to-suits, strip malls, residential development and destination retail. All of this is part of Michael’s repertoire, and it’s all fun: “I love what I do, my fee for service is just the bonus,” Michael says. He truly loves putting an opportunity together. He is a people person and wakes up every morning genuinely excited to work.
Over the years, Carithers Real Estate has acquired many national clients, including CVS, Eckerd Drugs, Burger King, Pizza Hut, KFC and McDonalds. One of his most prestigious accomplishments was the National Guard defense base in Anderson, South Carolina. With only two of these bases in the entire United States – the other being in Texas – it’s amazing that he and his father helped convince the Guard to select Anderson from its many locational choices around the country.
Michael’s business has been successful due to the high level of customer satisfaction. Carithers Real Estate treats its clients as if they were family. Michael notes, “I’m not going to sell them something I wouldn’t invest in myself, just for a fee for service. That’s not the aim of my business.”
He has built the company on honesty and integrity. He believes that honesty + integrity = longevity. He strives to keep his clients well-informed and treats all transactions as if he were spending his own money and doing the work for himself. His honesty and integrity have created an outstanding business with a strong reputation, which is expanding his “family” every day.
