As the owner of an agency with my name on it, uncompromising service to my clients is my first priority. Professionalism, expertise, integrity and teamwork are key to my business. For more than 25 years, I have served national, international, and local clients looking for uncommon properties.
Professionally, I'm a member of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), the North Carolina Association of Realtors® (NCAR), the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council (REBAC), and the Realtors® Land Institute (RLI). I have been a presenter at the Asheville Land Development Conference and served on the Board of Directors for the North Carolina Realtors® Land Institute.
Prior to founding Sheelah Clarkson Agency, I worked as the Vice President of Corporate Real Estate for Clarkson Brothers Inc. an industrial machinery relocation firm. In that position, I was responsible for industrial and commercial warehousing and distribution. There, I built, leased, managed, and owned 2 million square feet in three states. Prior to joining Clarkson Brothers, I was on the faculty at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia where I taught English. Along the way, I have also had the pleasure of being the co-owner of a small bookstore in both Landrum, South Carolina and Asheville, North Carolina.
Over the years, I've been involved in community service. For 10 years, I was a commissioner on the Spartanburg County Planning and Development Commission. I've also been an Advisory Board Member for the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce, a Board Member on the Landrum Chamber of Commerce and a Board Member on the Polk County Chamber of Commerce. For more than 10 years, I served as the Sponsorship Chair and Steering Committee Member, for the Blue Ridge BBQ Festival, the state championship BBQ festival of North Carolina.
