Jose Garcia


J King Real Estate

Hello, my name is Jose Garcia.  I was born and raised in Columbia and its surrounding areas including West Columbia, Red Bank, Lexington, Irmo, and Chapin.  I graduated from Columbia College but my allegiance belongs to USC… Go Gamecocks!  I am married to my beautiful wife, Laurel, who is also a Columbia native and owns/operates a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Irmo.  We have a daughter, Lily, and absolutely love the city we live in. 

Prior to becoming a real estate agent, I worked for Chick-fil-A in various capacities and for Lexington County Emergency Medical Services as an EMT.  My time at Lexington County gave me an extensive knowledge of the city, while working for Chick-fil-A taught me how to provide genuine, hospitable service, and how to do business in an honest and honorable way.  

My wife and I used J. King Real Estate to help us purchase our very first home, and Jason made us feel cared for and truly had our best interest at heart.  This is why when I decided to become an agent, J. King Real Estate was top on my list of agencies I wanted to work for.  I am confident that the experiences I have from my previous careers combined with this stellar firm will provide you with the best home buying/selling experience possible, and I am excited to be apart of this process with you!

"Initially contacted Jose regarding a listing that was already under contract. From there we established an immediate relationship. Providing crucial information for each and every property fitting the criteria i was in the market for. Viewing the properties, Jose was able to schedule showings almost immediately and arrived early to each property. After our offer was selected, Jose guided me throughout the entire process, meetings, timeliness, and documentation. He has a true love for real estate which is displayed through excellent stewardship." - J.A.
