Meet John Rosen

John Rosen recently opened his real estate business doors, but is no stranger to business and the real estate industry.

A lawyer by trade, his career path has allowed him to gain critical knowledge about the legal and business components of home buying.

As a native Charlestonian, his love of the community and enthusiasm to bring it to others is what motivates him to find a perfect home for those he’s honored to represent.

Switching Gears to Find His Calling

After being in the law industry for 16 years as a highly-rated Charleston attorney dealing in business litigation, transactions of various types, and advising clients about complex business situations, he had a calling to switch gears and use his background to bring his rich and extensive experience to Sweet Grass Real Estate. John was a licensed tour guide of the City of Charleston and has a wealth of knowledge about the history of downtown Charleston and surrounding areas. He is also heavily active on the Folly Association of Business litter committee, a member of the Flourish Council of the Lowcountry Land Trust and a member of the Surfrider Foundation.

While still a practicing business attorney, he became a broker-in-charge and decided to begin his new venture in March 2021.

Bringing a Unique Perspective

John is not only the best resource for all things James Island, Folly Beach, and downtown Charleston, he also understands how to shoulder the stress of real estate transactions.

His easygoing personality and ability to help people make the buying and selling process go as smoothly as possible are a few of the many reasons to hire John if you are looking to buy or sell.

Combining the Very Best — Bringing Carrie Rosen On Board and Forming the Dynamic Duo

When John heard about how Carrie was taking the Charleston real estate market by storm, he was intrigued by her rare approach to real estate and decided to dive in with her.

Laid back and highly lovable, her hardworking and freethinking style was the perfect match for Sweet Grass Real Estate. So he acted quickly, asking her to join the company to start down a new path together.

No Problems, Only Solutions

John and Carrie have a mission to find solutions where others might see complex problems. They consider each customer a valued lasting relationship that will far outlive the home buying or selling process.

They continue to better the Lowcountry by providing the best in integrity, honesty, and unparalleled knowledge of the area.

Meet Carrie Rosen

Carrie Rosen is a free spirit with a unique perspective that helps to make Sweet Grass Real Estate such a successful agency. Consistently one of the top earners for a reason, she continues to take the Charleston market by storm.

Carrie believes it is her genuine and laid back approach that is endearing to both other industry professionals and the customers who quickly call her a friend.

Fate Brought her to Folly Beach Where She Found “Home”

She moved around a lot during her childhood, becoming somewhat of a nomad. But when fate brought her to Folly Beach, SC, she knew instantly that she had found “home.”

Her previous employment experience includes 23 years in the food and beverage industry in the Charleston community, where she fostered strong relationships that last to this today.

These relationships are far-reaching and deep and have been indispensable in her real estate career. The switch to real estate six years ago was a natural one.

Laid Back — But Don’t Underestimate Her Drive

Although she’s laid back, she is one of the hardest-working professionals in the real estate industry. She sees possibilities that others overlook and is continually focused on the next home opportunity before it is even on the market.

Her intuition is second only to her empathetic nature, which helps her to establish true bonds with every client she comes into contact with.

Carrie is very active in the Charleston community and is always looking to give back. She is a supporter of causes such as Waves 4 Women, a Folly Beach therapy group, and Surfers Healing.

Living a Positive and Love-Filled Life

Carrie believes in showing her true self and living an honest, integrity-based life filled with self-love and love for everyone around her.

She is the mother of two young children who carry the same goodness and positivity. With John Rosen at her side, the dynamic duo is unstoppable.
