John Pulliam

Branch Leader - Lake Keowee-Seneca, Lake Keowee-Waterfront, Lake Hartwell, @Keowee Key

Many professionals dream of achieving both business success and personal happiness. For John Pulliam, branch leader of the newest Allen Tate offices in the Mountain Lakes region of the Upstate, those come in the same package.

John's first career was finance and accounting, which led him to a position as chief financial officer for a developer of master planned communities. He soon developed a keen understanding and love for real estate, and in 2003, invested in his first brokerage at Keowee Key. The next year, he added a second office and in 2005, bought a former franchise, to form 1st Choice Realty. In March 2018, 1st Choice Realty joined the Allen Tate Companies with four offices serving Oconee County, S.C. and nearby communities.

John prides himself in balancing keen business acumen with ethical business practices. He's an approachable, empathetic leader who loves helping his agents negotiate transactions, build their business and maximize their profitability.

John and his wife, Sue (an Allen Tate Realtor®) make their home in Lake Keowee. They enjoy boating, golf, hiking, reading and visiting their adult children in Greenville and Charleston.
