A broker, associate and manager will be the core group to market a sprawling new village getting underway in Berkeley County.
The team is with Carnes Crossroads Real Estate — “responsible for all new home sales within the Daniel Island Co.’s emerging Carnes Crossroads community in Goose Creek,” the company says.
Initial staff on the sales and administrative team are Chuck Buck, broker-in-charge; Terri Hartig, sales associate; and Cheryl Waker, office manager. They will be housed at the newly opened Carnes Crossroads Information Center at 513 Wodin Place in Goose Creek.
According to Daniel Island Co., the first single-family homes are under construction within the 2,300-acre master planned community.

As vice president of sales for Beazer Homes, he managed sales for 15 communities in Charleston, Columbia and Savannah.
Buck was named Sales Representative of the Year in the Charleston area for the 1997 Prism Awards and was National Sales Manager of the Year at Beazer in 2005.
“Chuck is a natural for this role,” says Matt Sloan, president of the Daniel Island Co., noting that he is a top sales performer with extensive management experience within the home building industry.

Traditional residential neighborhoods, southern architecture, parks, trails and lakes at Carnes Crossroads are being carefully integrated with retail businesses, corporate offices, medical facilities, schools and churches to create a small-town community where people live, work and play, the company says..
As many as 15,000 people eventually will call Carnes Crossroads home, according to Daniel Island Co.
