I have had the honor of helping folks from all over the country purchase their retirement home here in Greenville South Carolina. There are several benefits to living in Greenville that attracts them to this area, but the one idea most people that retire to Greenville share is that the people here are nice and courteous.

Greenville is a great place to live, and it offers comfortable living for just about anyone including families and retirees.

Festivals, events, and bountiful farmers' markets grace the Greenville area year after year.
