The History of Quartermaster Properties

By March 26, 2018August 14th, 2020No Comments

The Company Name
Quartermaster Properties . . . our clients often ask us where we came up with the name. The history of the term quartermaster is a naval term related to navigation. The quartermaster is the enlisted member in charge of the watch-to-watch navigation and the maintenance, correction and preparation of nautical charts and navigation publications. Joseph Morelli, our Broker in Charge, served his country enlisted and commissioned in the United States Navy for a total of 31 years. Thus, he is the reason that the name of the company is what it is today. Consequently, the term Quartermaster Properties could not be more relevant to the real estate business and the close watch we have on our clients’ real estate investments

The Beginning
The name of a company is great, but where the rubber meets the road is how good is the service it provides to its clients? We all have been in a situation where we really needed something done right and done right the first time. The struggle is very real when it comes to finding someone to do just that! In the early years of Quartermaster Properties (2008) we had a friend who needed “boots on the ground” to manage their vacation rental. It was a very nice $2 million home on Folly Beach and it gave us our first look into what it takes to be a great property manager. From there we expanded into long term rentals, securing several of our own, and made a few minor mistakes as we learned the business.

The Company Today
Since 2008, we have grown and adjusted our processes to make Quartermaster Properties one of the most highly respected property management companies in South Carolina. Our vision for the company was to eventually add a sales division, which we recently completed. Now Quartermaster Properties is a full service real estate company providing the best property management and sales in South Carolina. The term that we have coined could not be more true today than it was in 2008 . . . We Are Exactly What You Need.
