About West Columbia-

West Columbia is a community on the Congaree River in Lexington County graced with tree-lined streets, quaint shops, longtime residents as well as young families.  Historic areas stand side-by-side with new development which adds to the charm and livability of West Columbia. 

First chartered as a town in 1894 under the name Brookland,  The United States Postal Service designated the area "New Brookland" since there already existed a town with the name Brookland.  In 1936, the charter was changed to West Columbia.  And even today, there are still many businesses, churches, and a high school that retain the Brookland and New Brookland names.

The Guignard family built the first bridge across the Congaree River.  Made of wood, it provided not only access to the mill, but also eased transportation of the people and freight between West Columbia and Columbia.  With the charter as a town, there also came a certain desire to be independent and self sustaining and the birth of a West Columbia business district with dry goods, a livery stable, a grocery store, post office, vegetable markets, and various mercantile stores.  The trade center developed on what is now Meeting Street close to the river and a small portion on what is now known as State Street. 

On March 3, 1905, a fire destroyed the Brookland community. The next ten years were spent rebuilding the homes and the building still seen on Meeting and State Streets. The river flooded every spring until the Dreher Shoals (Lake Murray) Dam was built.  The river water would cover the wooden bridge which was replaced by the Gervais Street Bridge in 1927.  In present day, the City provides a full range of municipal services including police and fire protection, street and sanitation services, recreational activities, planning and zoning and water and sewer services.

Protective of the natural beauty of the river and its small town feel, West Columbia sparkles on the river just across the Gervais Street and Blossom Street bridges from the capital city of Columbia.  Neighbored by Cayce and Lexington, West Columbia is a riverfront city beginning to realize its untapped potential as well as it's very rich heritage.

"We were sent to Paul on a recommendation of one of my co workers. Best decision we could have made. We were in the middle of a long distance move and that was stressful enough. Paul was very professional and very detail oriented. He always was available to answer any questions or concerns. Paul will go out of his way to ensure the selling experience was as easy and streamlined as possible. Paul ended up selling our home in less than a month. The closing took place after we had already moved. Paul handled every aspect and even took care of arranging for repairs and dealing with contractors. We could not be more thankful!" Mike & Kendra W
"We were referred to Paul by a mutual friend. He helped us search and search until we found the perfect home for our family. He worked hard, long hours to make things happen for us without us having to lift a finger. He has and will continue to be highly recommended by us. We enjoyed working with Paul and will call on him again with any future real estate investments." John Clarey

"Mr. Bryant..........I cant say enough great things about this man. He worked tirelessly for 7 months helping my wife and I find a home. The tricky part was his ability to do this 7,000 miles away. His expertise, experience, patients and tenacity is of the highest caliber in the industry. His relentless efforts and customer focused work schedules had Mr. Bryant in every house in the Columbia SC area, taking pictures, reports and evaluations until he found the perfect home for my family and I. With out a doubt Mr. Bryant is a true professional that will take the time to ensure he finds the right property for the right buyers. He is like the cupid of real estate. Thanks Paul" Rob & Sunny Willard

I feel very comfortable recommending Paul to family, friends and anyone looking to buy or sell. He is very knowledgeable of the real estate industry, and truly works hard from start to finish to make the whole process as smooth as possible.

"I sent an email request to Exit Realty requesting a showing of a house… within a few minutes Paul answered my email and agreed to show me the house that very afternoon. I liked Paul from the minute I met him, he is very personable, knowledgeable, and helpful. He is never in a hurry and always seems to have adequate time to let you browse the homes and ask any questions you may have. Paul met me on many occasions on short notice and was always very accommodating to my schedule. I always felt like I was Paul’s only client at the time which I know was not true, but he is very good at giving you the personal attention you want and need. I have worked with two other agents in the recent past and can say that working with Paul was like working with your best friend; one that would go out of his way to do anything you wanted or needed. Thank you Paul for answering that first email request; I couldn’t have asked for a better agent to help me find and buy a house. I would highly recommend Paul to all of my friends and family and should I ever be in the position of needing a real estate agent again I will have to hunt Paul down!!" Sherry Ribbe
