How did Pat McNamara become one of the leading land brokers in the Upstate? Let’s start at the beginning.
A Greenville native, Pat McNamara spent his childhood roaming the Piedmont and the foothills of the Upstate. From the Lake Keowee and Lake Jocassee area, to Gray Court and Fountain Inn, to Tigerville and Travelers Rest, Pat knew the Upstate was home and it was here wanted to live and raise a family.
That is what led him into real estate, a career he started in a few years after graduating from Clemson University in 1982. In 1996, he founded The McNamara Company, which provided commercial and industrial real estate services in the Upstate and North Carolina mountains. He was active in retail, office, industrial, and development properties before focusing his practice on land brokerage.
In 2002, Pat explored a new business pursuit: co-owning Carolina Land Company. He has spent 19 years in this position, and helped represent buyers and sellers of tracts of land for investment, farms and farming, home sites, recreation, hunting, timber and development. He has a true passion for residential land, farm land, timber land, recreation land, hunting land, mini-estates, mini farms, home sites, mountain view land, waterfront land (including river front land, stream front, creek front land, lake front land and pond land) and investment land. He has sold tracts from one to 1000 acres. He focuses on the “edge of growth and out.”
In the community, Pat has been involved with several professional and civic organizations including the American Diabetes Association (former Greenville Leadership Council Chair), the S.C. Chapter of Realtors’ Land Institute (former president), National Association of Realtors, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes (former board member). When not working in the outdoors, you can likely still find him outdoors either hiking, scuba diving, camping , boating, making furniture, hunting or enjoying all the travails of maintaining a five-acre homestead. He is married to the former Beth Phillips and is the proud father of three girls and one boy and three grandsons.
