Hunter Suggs joined National Land Realty in July 2020, after 22 years of experience in commercial real estate development, construction management, and becoming a broker in 2017. He previously worked for Edens, Inc. for 12 years and Colliers International South Carolina, Inc. for 10 years. In his experience, he has sold commercial development land, recreational land and office/industrial buildings.
What sets Hunter apart from other land professionals on the commercial development land side, is that he has a full understanding of the metrics and financial modeling an investor/buyer uses in analyzing a land parcel for acquisition. On the recreational land side, his love of the outdoors and experience with timber and land management also sets him apart.
He is a graduate of Clemson University, class of 1998, where he received a BS in Financial Management and a minor in Forest Resource Management. He was proud to be a part of Columbia's Chamber of Commerce – Leadership Class of 2020 and his achievement in receiving the Central Carolina Realtors Association - 2019 Circle of Excellence award for transaction volume. He is also a member of the Central Carolina Realtors Association - CCRA and CCIM Institute. He was the past President of the Business Networking International Chapter in Columbia, SC. Hunter received the CCIM Institute designation in 2020. He is a current board member of the Congaree Land Trust.
Hunter has lived in Columbia his entire life, along with his wife, Amanda, his daughter Hannah and their pets Riley, a yellow lab, and Ashe a black lab. In his free time, he is an avid outdoorsman, with a lifelong love of hunting. He mainly hunts waterfowl and turkeys and has a passion for land and wildlife management, primarily on his 550-acre family farm, on the Lynches River, in Kershaw County.
He enjoys spending time on the tractor, whether it be planting food plots in the fall or prepping for control burns in the early spring. In the spring and summer, he enjoys fishing, boating, and spending time at the coast or the lake with his family and two Labs. Hunter's favorite location at the coast is Edisto Beach, where his family has had a house for over 20 years.
