Last year was the 2nd busiest year ever by only a few transactions. So far, we are up 9% over 2016. The economy is roaring along with 3.1% unemployment. Boeing is doing quite well and has led to Volvo building a new plant west of Goose Creek. BMW in Greenville is shipping 700-1000 cars each day through Charleston. When Volvo’s Berkeley plant is up and running, they expect to ship 30,000 vehicles in 2018 through the port. We have incubators all over town where young professionals are working on the next hot technology. Getting voted #1 city 4 times in a row has drawn a lot of attention our way.
