W. Lewis White

BROKER-IN-CHARGE Licensed in North & South Carolina

Real Estate is a business of opportunities. Each phone call represents another chance to serve a client and share the benefits of living and working in Spartanburg, SC. That is the approach Lewis White Sr. has taken since he began his real estate career in 1978 with Grier & Company. 

Why did you decide to become a Realtor and why are you passionate about being a Realtor? 
Growing up in Spartanburg, working at The Beacon Drive-In (family business) and graduating from Wofford College, I always knew I wanted to stay and raise my family in this wonderful community. Being able to successfully promote and sell Spartanburg is an opportunity that few people experience. I feel very fortunate that I have been given the opportunity to make this my life's work. It is heartwarming to see new families move to Spartanburg, and children who grew up in Spartanburg return here in their adult years. They know the advantage of a great education as well as the thriving social and cultural environment. It truly is a one-of-a-kind community that I am proud to call home.

What types of approaches will you use to sell my home and/or find me a home? 
I have been in the Real Estate Business in Spartanburg for 40 years and have watched this community grow in so many positive ways. During this time, I have made amazing connections that help aid in my ability to be one of the best in my field. Being able to call on numerous companies, corporations, and individuals to see if they know of someone looking to sell or move to Spartanburg is a great privilege that I have. We are also very active in the community- working with local schools, churches, civic clubs, the Piedmont Club, Spartanburg Country Club and Carolina Country Club. In addition to being ingrained in our community, we work hard to advertise and market the listings we represent. You can always find our advertising on multiple social media platforms. Also, you will see our advertisements in Spartanburg Magazine, The Real Estate Book, as well as numerous websites including our own wlewiswhite.com, Realtor.com, YellowPages.com, etc. We show our company listings to our clients first, to give them the most exposure possible.

How will you keep me informed? 
Communication is our #1 goal every day! We strive to be available every hour and every minute to help our Buyers, Sellers, and prospects in their Real Estate needs. We pride ourselves on keeping these individuals up to date through every step of the process. You can always reach me, and I will be sure to respond the same day and most times within 30 minutes (unless I am with clients). We also use ShowingTime that is available daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to assist Realtors with scheduling their appointments and keeping our sellers informed on showings on their properties.

Describe a typical day as a Realtor Monday through Friday:
You can always expect me at the office by 8:30 a.m. and I usually don't leave until 5:30 p.m. I am also in the office most Saturdays and Sundays for a few hours, preparing for upcoming showings, appointments, and listings. Whether I am in the office or not, I will return all phone calls and emails the same day I receive them. I am constantly updating listings and informing my clients of new homes or properties that suit their needs. I also devote time every day to reading many publications pertaining to the Real Estate Business, so that I can stay on top of the latest trends, marketing technologies and community growth to improve my business.

"Lewis is the most knowledgeable and skilled realtor we have ever worked with. After a 1 hour meeting he ascertained the type of home we were looking for and presented excellent choices in a limited inventory market! We found the perfect home and he negotiated a good price. Then he made sure everything stayed on track for our closing date! I highly recommend Lewis for any real estate need!"

- Bill Hulette - Spartanburg, SC

"When we decided to put our home of 27 years on the market for sale, we were faced with the challenging task of finding a realtor in whom we could put our trust to properly value the house, market the house, find qualified buyers and ensure the closing would go smoothly.
We interviewed three different realtors before deciding to list the home with W. Lewis White Company. Lewis was the only one of the three who, at our initial meeting, came having already done research into comparable homes selling in our area. He presented documentation on how many other homes are available in the same price range and square footage and how long they are typically on the market before selling.
Lewis showed us the various media in which he markets the homes he lists and said he would be able to provide us with feedback from buyers after each showing.
Most likely, every Realtor has the same resources, but as we stated, Lewis was the only Realtor who came prepared and explained all of this to us.
The home was shown multiple times, several offers were made, and it ultimately sold for the asking price. Throughout the process, Lewis and his assistant Deanna kept us informed and advised us on our next steps.
In short, we couldn’t have found anyone better than Lewis White to represent our home. We’ve already told many of our friends and family how pleased we were. If we had to go through this a hundred times, we would choose Lewis each time. His integrity, determination, knowledge and dedication is unsurpassed. "

- Penny & Nancy Hodges - Spartanburg, SC

"We had the privilege of dealing with Mr. White from the time we were first looking for a rental prior to our move to Spartanburg to the time we sold the house that he found for us, approximately 2-3/4 years later. . . I don't know anyone in Spartanburg that understands the real estate market better than Lewis and and I don't know anyone that has a sincere and personal connection with more people in Spartanburg than Lewis. We enjoyed every minute of our relationship and would highly recommend him and his company's services to anyone."

- M. Posey & S. Santana - Spartanburg

"I would definitely recommend Claude Saleeby of W. Lewis White Company. He helped us sell our parents' home in Spartanburg. Because we do not live in Spartanburg, Claude had to deal with many details and act on our behalf. He always stayed on top of the details, kept us informed, and went the extra mile to make our experience as smooth as possible."

- Sue C. - Columbia, SC

"Lewis White was the most knowledgeable realtor we interviewed before listing our mid- century modern home on Ivy Street. Lewis is very familiar with the Spartanburg market. He was very helpful in establishing our sale price and expectations. We are extremely happy we listed with Lewis. We had five showings within the first week. Lewis brought us an acceptable offer within a few days of our initial showings.
Lewis guided us through the contract, inspection stages, negotiation and a successful closing. Lewis was able to work with all parties to enable us to close on this sale and then close in Charleston on our new house the same day !
My wife and I highly recommend W Lewis White Company Inc."

- Gene Kendrick - Spartanburg

"Within a two month span I worked with Lewis on selling a house and buying a house. On both occasions his professionalism and knowledge of the area was an obvious asset. With his contacts, we were able to sell our home quickly and with his direction we found our perfect new home. Thanks Lewis!"

- Kyle Boyles - Spartanburg, SC

"We have used Jeanne on 3 of our home purchases, and will never use any other Realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, professional and never hesitates to humor any request - no matter how foolish it may sound. She listens to your wants and needs, doesn't push you towards one home or another, but, somehow, always seems to know what is right for yur family - even before you do. Her patience with us during all of our home buying experiences was incredible; our kids still rave about Miss Jeanne and always want to stop by and see her! She is a true gem and we send anyong looking to buy or sell a home in this area her way."

- Allison - Inman, SC

"Jeanne was there for me the whole time. This was my first home buying experience and she made it so easy by keeping me in the circle and explaining the process so that there were no surprises."

- Valarie - Spartanburg, SC

"We worked with Jeanne Thompson in selling our current home and buying the home that we'd move to. The best decision we made in both situations was asking Jeanne for help. Her attention to details, coupled with her knowledge of the Upstate area and willingness to get to know our family's needs made the process of buying and selling as pleasant as possible. We were pretty inexperienced buyer/seller and Jeanne knew exactly how to help when we were unsure, uneasy and treading in waters unfamiliar. If we were going to buy or sell another home, we would without any hesitation ask Jeanne for her help. We would recommend her to anyone that is looking for assistance in the real estate market."

- Paul - Spartanburg, SC

"Really enjoyed working with Lewis. Incredibly knowledgeable about market and neighborhoods, great insight on value for money. Best of all friendly, patient and thoughtful, even when we were very indecisive. Highly recommend Lewis for any real estate need."

- Ricky Richardson
