New agents join dunes properties in King Street digs

The Post & Courier | January 18, 2014

Two South Carolina natives with backgrounds as advocates have hooked up with a local agency touting offices from downtown to the beaches.

As an authority in eco-friendly buildings, Bryan McElveen brings a unique perspective to the real estate market in Charleston, according to dunes properties.

At the same time, Catherine Scurry showcases experience as a paralegal, which has helped her transition to a career in real estate.

The pair will join the sales team at The Real Estate Studio, situated at 214 King Street.

According to dunes properties, McElveen elicits “a love for the natural environment,” making Charleston a great place to live. He specializes in downtown Charleston, North Charleston and Mount Pleasant communities. “His knowledge ranges from high-performance homes in Park Circle to faithfully preserved historic homes on the Charleston peninsula,” the agency says.

McElveen since 2012 has authored Charleston EcoRealtor, a website pertaining to “eco-conscious retrofitting and sustainability-minded real estate,” the residential brokerage notes. “He is an advocate for the restorative balance of the places in which we live, work and play.”

The Realtor’s hobbies include gardening, cooking and enjoying the area’s rivers and beaches.

He can be reached at or 843-276-0352.

Scurry, who grew up in the Midlands, spent summers with her large family at Pawleys Island.

She moved to the Charleston area with her husband, Jerry, after many years as a Taxpayers’ Rights Advocate for the State of South Carolina, according to dunes properties.

After seven years in the Charleston area, she has “cultivated a love for the historic charm of Charleston and the Lowcountry,” the agency says.

Scurry, as a former paralegal, uses her legal knowledge to help clients negotiate successful real estate contracts and “realize their dream of a beautiful home in Charleston,” the brokerage points out.

Her off-the-job pursuits include reading at the beach, hiking, and cooking and entertaining with friends and family.

She can be reached at or 803-331-7671.
