Lake Keowee Real Estate - Lake Real Estate for Sale

Welcome to my Lake Keowee Real Estate site. Lake Keowee, located in Seneca SC, is an 18,500 acre lake with over 300 miles of shoreline and is known for its panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and its pristine blue waters. Lake Keowee is becoming a top destination for retirees as well as second home buyers.

Part of a three-lake region known as the Golden Corner of South Carolina, Lake Keowee is located within two hours of Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina. Unbelievable beauty at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and endless outdoor activities await you.

My name is Eric Stegall and I specialize in Lake Keowee Real Estate… from lake front homes and home sites, to country club communities or investment properties. As your REALTOR®, I'm here to assist you in all aspects of the purchase, from finding the right property to choosing the right lender. I will guide you through the process all the way to closing.


Please browse my website to learn more about Lake Keowee Real Estate and my areas of expertise which include homes and home sites for sale in: Crescent Communities (Waterford, Waterford Pointe, Waterside Crossing, The Summit),The Cliffs Communities(Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards, Cliffs at Keowee Falls, Cliffs at Keowee Springs), The Reserve at Lake Keowee, Keowee Key and Cross Creek Plantation just to name a few.

I’m often asked Why Should I Choose Lake Keowee? Of course there are several reasons why and the answer is different for everyone that decides to make Lake Keowee their home. Having been raised in Seneca, South Carolina and the Lake Keowee area only to move back 12 years ago with my family here are my thoughts, and I know this is true for my clients that I’ve helped discover Lake Keowee for over a decade now. The sheer beauty of the area is hard to match. The crystal clear water sets Lake Keowee apart from the majority of other lakes in the southeast and its consistent water levels give property owners peace of mind regarding one of the largest investments they will make in their lifetime.

If you love nature and being in the outdoors then, you will love Lake Keowee. Whether it’s the numerous water sports you can enjoy on the lake, or fishing the many rivers and lakes or maybe you prefer hiking the many trails that are available that lead to picturesque waterfalls. Lake Keowee has it all right here in your back yard and don’t forget the Blue Ridge Mountain views and the many golf courses that you can play.

We enjoy wonderful weather here at the lake. We have a 4 season climate here at the lake, but a very temperate climate. July is our warmest month with an average high temperature of 90* and a low of 68*, while January is our coldest month with an average high of 52* and a low of 30*. The other 10 months are very comfortable and allow boating and golf most of the year.

Our location is hard to beat. Lake Keowee is centrally located between Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina. The downtown Greenville area is a short 40 minute drive from most areas of the lake. Asheville, North Carolina is an hour and a half away, and Clemson University is only 8 miles from Seneca and offers many great sporting events and social opportunities.

The one thing that all of my clients are looking for and have found here at Lake Keowee is a place to relax and share their success with their friends and family. I have yet to meet one family that regrets their decision to buy at the lake.

As an independent agent, not working for any one developer I'm able to list or sell any property on Lake Keowee and provide my clients with objective advice.

I would also like to invite you to visit anytime. I would love the opportunity to show you around Lake Keowee and introduce you to all the area has to offer.

If you've given any thought to buying or selling at Lake Keowee or the surrounding area, give me a call. You can rest assured you're dealing with a REALTOR® who will treat you fairly and professionally every step of the way.

Lake Keowee Real Estate Pro Client Testimonials:

"When my wife decided to move out of Florida and explore the upcountry in South Carolina we searched the internet as everyone does. We came across Eric's website and found it very comprehensive and easy to use, especially for the lake Keowee and surrounding areas. We contacted Eric and were impressed with him right away. We scheduled our trip up to house hunt and Eric had everything lined up so we could be efficient. He was so good in fact that we looked at everything and signed a negotiated contract all within a week. Eric knew the area extremely well and also had a great sense of what we would like. He didn't waste time taking us to things he knew we wouldn't like. Once the closing came near he had contacts with all the resources we needed. He was excellent in his follow up and attention to detail. We are extremely happy with the result and would eagerly recommend Eric to anyone exploring the Keowee area."

Mike and Nancy Gara

"Thank you to Eric for helping us to successfully complete our retirement/vacation home search. After doing our due diligence searching for a retirement vacation home in Colorado, Florida, Michigan, and North Carolina we found the stars aligned at The Reserve at Lake Keowee. Our search began with Eric through his website. Eric was our "man on the ground" he did a lot of leg work allowing us to weed out homes and use our home search time most effectively. Through our on-line relationship, we were able to narrow down our choices, then Eric personally previewed and photographed the home we were interested in before visiting the area. Due to extensive research and detailed communication, our decision to purchase our home at The Reserve at Lake Keowee was 90% decided before stepping foot on the property. After a four state search, why The Reserve? Many reasons, but the top four are the natural beauty of the area, quality of homes in the community, quality of the community amenities, and of course the home itself. So, did the home buying process go as smooth as silk? Of course not! A competing bid came in on the home as I was stepping on the plane to visit the property. Thank goodness for Eric because he was on top of it every step of the way. It was his expertise that allowed us to successfully purchase the home and get a great deal in spite of a competing bid. And I must mention Eric's exemplary "service after the sale." Since we are out of town buyers, Eric met with the home inspector, handyman, etc. and facilitated every small detail involved in a home purchase. Thank you Eric for your professionalism and knowledge- we would do it again in a heartbeat."

Steve and Valerie Sabol

"We chose Lake Keowee because of the crystal clear water, small town feel and beautiful views. Eric was instrumental to us finding the perfect place that fit our needs. He is helpful, courteous and goes out of his way to service the client without being pushy. He takes the time to get to know the client and develop a trusting relationship. He was on top of the process every step of the way and at every turn let us know exactly what we needed to know and what was coming next. His professionalism is above board and made our choice of Lake Keowee and easy one."

Tom and Tennille Luginbill

"Eric, we wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed working with you. Your conscientiousness and concern for us made looking for a home on Lake Keowee fun and successful. It made a difference with us not being familiar with the area to know that we could count on you. You did not waste our time. You asked us what we were interested in and you found it for us. We will always remember you for a job well done. We appreciate your time and help."

Roger and Sandy Hawkins

"Eric helped me with the purchase of my retirement property on Lake Keowee. Eric is extremely knowledgeable of the area and of the properties available at any given time. Throughout the search he was always available, patient and provided me with excellent advice. When we finally found the right property for me he made sure that I was informed of what would happen next and stayed on top of every activity all of the way through closing. A major problem (from the seller's side) was encountered at the initial attempt at closing. Eric remained extremely active and kept me informed as the problem got resolved. The second attempt at closing was successful, due significantly to Eric's efforts. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for a home in the Lake Keowee area."

Jeff Turchi

"Eric represented us on a Lake Keowee home purchase contingent upon another home sale. Eric made the home purchase virtually stress free compared to the home sale. We were out of town buyers and Eric was a valuable resource for providing us advice and any information that we needed. Eric was in constant communication with us insuring deadlines were met and always very responsive. Eric is very competent, professional, and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Eric as your real estate agent. We now call Eric a friend!"

Berl and Martha Davis

"Eric, Elena and I want to tell you how much we appreciate your direction, hard work, and professional advice in marketing and selling our home on Lake Keowee. The real estate market was starting to slow at that time and without your continued support it would have been very difficult to sell.

You also made the closing of our property very comfortable and extremely smooth and that is always a stressful time when you have sold a home."

Jay and Elena Hanselman

"My wife Susan and I had a real challenge deciding where to retire. We wanted someplace relatively central to family and also wanted to live on or near a lake with a sense of community. Considering all of that and after researching some areas in Tennessee, we began to focus in the Lake Keowee area. After a great deal of Internet research, Susan was fortunate to find Eric. After a few phone calls and emails, we made a trip from our home in Chicago to Clemson. While we weren't certain if we wanted to buy an existing home or build and didn't know the Lake Keowee area at all, Eric was very well prepared for us when we met him for the first time in August to begin our search. In short order, he was able to introduce us to the area, show us a number of homes within our budget as well as lots to consider. We narrowed our search, leaning toward finding a lot, and made a second trip in November. After we made a decision to build, Eric was able to help us evaluate the pluses and minuses on a number of lots and then negotiate a contract before we returned home. His knowledge of pricing history and trends was extremely valuable in our negotiating an acceptable contract and price. Susan and I would certainly recommend Eric to help with your real estate needs in the area."

Mike and Susan Dempsey

"Our dream of owning a waterfront home and dock materialized this spring after spending two days touring properties we had chosen through internet listings. Our choices were then thoughtfully vetted by Eric with his knowledge of the area, our tastes and budget. He kept on top of everything throughout the closing process and was a great help in suggesting local contractors even after we closed. We live 12 hours from Lake Keowee, so it was reassuring to work with a professional who lives in the area and was there to assist us on a moment's notice. We highly recommend him for anyone looking for their own property around the lake. Thanks Eric!"

Paul and Laurie Gibbons

"We came to South Carolina considering purchasing a lake home but the timing was not right. Eric kept us up to date on what was happening in the market without any pressure. Once we made the decision to find a home he took the time to focus our search on homes that met our criteria and in several cases brought us back multiple times. When we selected our house he was not done helping us. He recommended vendors that we could use once we were moved in and helped us get to know what there was to do in the area. I can truly say that Eric helped us make this new house our family home."

"We can't put into words how great it has been. The single best investment of our lives together and the kids can't get enough of it." Tom

"We are in love with the place. We spent pretty much the entire summer there and extended our weekends into October. We will be there the week of Thanksgiving as well. It really has been a dream come true and a huge blessing for our family." David
