Get to Know Me

Jean Durham knows a thing or two about successfully navigating life transitions. Her personal tenacity, adaptability, organizational wizardry, and positivity have helped her parlay her long tenure and deep expertise in marketing and sales into a triumphant second act in real estate, where she has earned many accolades and been a consistent advocate for her clients.

After becoming a young widow with grown children in 2012, Jean decided to follow her dreams, sold the family home in Texas, and investigated numerous relocation options before discovering and setting down roots in Greenville. She achieved the highest level of real estate licensure in both North and South Carolina, with the ultimate goal of assisting others through life changes. As a result, she has developed a unique style that incorporates concierge-level service and an unwavering focus on her clients’ best interests, coupled with seasoned negotiation skills and a steadfast positive slant that her clients value immensely.

Having earned both the Sellers Representative Specialist and Luxury Specialist designations, Jean is a marketing strategist at heart. She’s handled complex transactions like 1031 exchanges and completed extra training in representing senior clients and is a self-professed techie, extremely comfortable with leveraging advanced technology to make the sales process easier, more effective, and more efficient.

On the purchase-side, Jean specializes in helping people find their dream homes, however they define them. Her strong track record of buying and selling estate, executive, and lifestyle homes paired with her love of nature have made her an expert on lake living, with ties to the Lake Robinson/Travelers Rest area in particular, where she currently resides and enjoys music, hiking, and spending time outdoors with her current husband.

Her community involvement includes membership in the Travelers Rest Garden Club, serving as a docent at the historic Kilgore Lewis House, donating blood for NICU patients, helping with Habitat for Humanity and Rebuild Upstate construction projects, and her biggest passion: working with a group of friends to raise funds throughout the year and then shop and package gifts for underprivileged children as part of the Salvation Army Angel Tree Project.

Jean was born in suburban Chicago and raised in Dallas. She began her college adventures with by earning a full-tuition piano scholarship but quickly switched gears when she discovered her passion for business and marketing.








Jean is a true professional and absolutely the best agent my wife and I have ever dealt with. We are experienced re-locators!! Ten moves during our 40 years of marriage. Where to begin…We met Jean via her w site many months ago when we were still living in FL unable to sell our home. We spent 2 days working with her viewing homes and neighborhoods in Greenville. At the end of our visit Jean had pinpointed exactly what we were looking for. Several months went before our home sold. During those months Jean kept in regular contact with us. Long and short…Jean found our home and gave us a personalized video tour. We put an offer in and it was accepted. We drove up soon after and viewed the home during the inspection. Perfect in many ways. Closing tomorrow. She did so much work for us after the acceptance. I could go on and on detailing what she has done beyond anything we expected. I highly recommend Jean Durham. If there is any one better at her craft…I wouldn’t believe one exists. Mark and Audrey
If you're looking for a Realtor® who's got your best interest at heart, Jean Durham is the one for you. She has a fantastic knowledge of the local market and works with a great network of people. She is very personable and makes you feel at ease. We couldn't have asked for more. We are first time buyers and she ensured that the whole process was as smooth as could be. She took time to explain anything we didn't understand which allowed us to make fully informed decisions. Sometimes you get lucky and great people come into your life at the right moment. We couldn't have asked for better. Jean was recommended to us and we most definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their property. Exceptional service through and through!
Partnering with Jean was the best decision from start to finish. She was eager to really listen to us and our needs, her knowledge of the area was insightful and extensive and any questions were answered quickly, no matter what time it was! We are relocating from across the country and Jean has built a network of other business professionals to assist with any other needs we had. The bottom line is she took care of us (and my neverending questions) and we knew she was always looking out for our best interests. Professional and friendly, you will be capable hands! Thank you, Jean!
Jean was such a pleasure to work with. She was available to answer any questions or concerns I had during the buying process at just about any time of night and day. She is extremely dedicated to finding the right place for you. Better than all of this, she is one of the only honest Realtors® I've ever worked with. She respects your budget and is able to find you those unicorn properties. I would not have found the home of my dreams without her constant help and willingness to answer all of my random questions.
Jean was amazing! We told her what we were looking for and she would immediately find the exact homes we were looking for. She responds immediately no matter what time we would contact her. She is one tough cookie too, when we needed something done, she made it happen immediately. She treated us like family (she even made cookies for my kids). Jean became more than just our Realtor® and now we consider her more family than Realtor®. We love you, Jean! Thanks for everything!
Jean was amazing! She immediately sent us listings, contacts for loans, crime apps, etc. She was on point and on fire! She set us up with 5 houses on the first day and sent us the itinerary. She does all the investigating and gets you answers before you even think of the questions. We adore her and recommend her 1,000 percent. She will go above and beyond for her clients and she’s a breath of fresh air. Thank you so much, Jean!

Let's Work Together!

I would love to assist you! (And in case you are concerned....I do not use spam as a marketing tool. So no need to worry that you will be flooded with unwanted emails.)
