Jeff Richardson Company An Upstate Tradition Since 1925

RICHARDSON Real Estate

864-962-1750

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE – SIMPSONVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA

The Jeff Richardson Company emerged as an independent business after Jeff R. Richardson graduated from Furman and began selling insurance as an independent sales person. He later began dabbling in real estate, and was one of the first in the Upstate to become a licensed agent. His son, Jeff, jr. joined him after graduating from Furman. An “invitation from the government” came shortly afterwards, delaying his chance to complete his first real estate transaction. After his father’s retirement in the late 1970s, Jeff, jr. sold the insurance end of the company and concentrated solely on real estate. Caroline Richardson Mahaffey is the third generation family broker at the Jeff Richardson Company. She began in the family business while a small child. Her father, Jeff Richardson, jr. would bring home the new pages of the Multiple Listing Service, and she and her sisters would take out the expired and sold listings pages and replace them with pages of new listings. Caroline would regularly ride out with her grandfather, Jeff Richardson, or her father to look at property. Officially, she began as a licensed real estate agent in the mid 1980s, and became Broker in Charge in 2005.

LIVING IN SIMPSONVILLE

S

impsonville, South Carolina, is a diverse and growing community that attracts young couples, busy families, and active retirees. Unlike similarly sized communities across the country, Simpsonville has been able to keep its small town feel while also enjoying enviable growth. Located only 20 minutes from downtown Greenville and an hour and a half from both Charlotte and Atlanta, Simpsonville is a growing community with award-winning schools, beautiful parks, accessible public services, lively events, and a wide variety of restaurants, retailers, and employers to keep residents engaged and happy. “Our downtown area is a hub of activity year-round with annual events and local shops, restaurants, and entertainment. We also have big-name stores. Everything that you need is right here at your doorstep,” said Tiffany Cherry, community relations specialist for the City of Simpsonville. Simpsonville’s merchants often assist with events and other initiatives through the Simpsonville Chamber of Commerce. Local businesses range from large stores like Publix, Target, Belk, and Michaels to small local enterprises like Mary’s Lunchbox, the Ice Cream Station, Stella’s Southern Bistro, Danny’s Fillin’ & Fixin’ Station, and Vaughn’s Country Store.

One of Simpsonville’s biggest attributes is Heritage Park, which boasts a full-size amphitheater. The amphitheatre is a fun outdoor venue where 16,000 people can take in a summer concert. For instance, the 2017 concert season featured Paul Simon, the reggae band Dirty Heads, Kelly Pickler, and both Leonard Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band in a joint appearance. The venue is also home to family favorite events such as the 10-day fair at Heritage Park each May, an Easter egg hunt, Movies in the Park, an Independence Day celebration featuring a professional fireworks display, Halloween at Heritage Park, and a spectacular drive-through Christmas lights show and Santa’s Village. Heritage Park also features athletic fields, walking trails, two playgrounds, and even a miniature replica steam engine train that takes children and adults for rides around the park. Simpsonville’s City Park is also a beacon for families and visitors looking for entertainment and family-friendly activities. City Park features a smaller amphitheater and stage that serves as the site of free Friday night concerts during the summer, sponsored by the Simpsonville Arts Foundation. Between 500 and 1,000 people can gather around it to enjoy a performance, and the city is pleased that is has become a destination in recent years. “In May we held a “Raise the Roof ” fund-raiser with Jimmy Buffett music, food trucks, and margaritas, which raised over $24,000 to construct a cover over that stage. We are blessed to have a community that rallies together to support our local arts and culture.” Cherry said. The play area at City Park will also be updated in 2017. The 2016 class of Leadership Simpsonville raised over $20,000 to add an ADA sensory playground to the existing playground. While many people move to Simpsonville to work for one of the community’s large employers, it is worth noting that another large group consists of empty-nesters who move to Simpsonville to retire and be closer to their children. Retirees are certainly drawn by their families, but also by the area’s many golf courses, active senior centers, and the many fun things to do nearby with their grandchildren like the Discovery Island water park. A strong local health care community with three major health systems is also a major attraction. The Simpsonville community has gained national recognition in recent years for its various attributes. Family Circle Magazine named Simpsonville one of the 10 Best Towns for Families in South Carolina in 2010. Money Magazine named our city one of the 25 Most Affordable Cities in the United States in 2011. More recently, career expert website Zippia named Simpsonville as one of the 10 Most Successful Cities in South Carolina, based on 2016 property values, median household income, and unemployment rate. In 2017 Simpsonville was declared the Safest City in South Carolina by SafeWise, a company that reviews home security systems online.

AWARD-WINNING SCHOOLS

T

he people of Simpsonville value education and realize its importance in the lives of their children. The community’s 12 elementary, middle, and high schools are all part of a single district known as Greenville County Schools and teem with activity throughout the year. Programs abound to help students achieve success, no matter what their particular talents and interests may be. Greenville County Schools educates an average of 75,550 students annually, spread over more than 800 square miles in Greenville County, as well as small parts of Spartanburg and Laurens Counties. Approximately 12,000 of those students attend a school, child development center, or career technology center in the Simpsonville area. Many of the district’s facilities have been recognized with state and national awards. The district boasts three National Blue Ribbon Schools, three Palmetto’s Finest schools, a National PTA School of Excellence, a National School of Character, a South Carolina School of Promise, and another that earned the Baldrige Model of Continuous Improvement recognition. Simpsonville Elementary earned the Recognized American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Model Program (RAMP) designation in 2016-17.

Bethel Elementary School, with 1005 students, earned its second National Blue Ribbon award from the U.S. Department of Education during the 2016 school year. It had previously been honored in 1996. Two other Greenville County Schools within in Simpsonville have also been so honored – Hillcrest Middle School and Oakview Elementary. “We were overwhelmed with joy,” Lewis said of the honor from the federal government. “A total of 12 schools in the Greenville County system have earned this honor over the years.” Bethel’s faculty was also thrilled that their nominee for the Greenville County Teacher of the Year award took home the top honor in 2016. Katie Saunders, a primary multi-age classroom teacher who teaches both firstand second-graders in a combined classroom, earned the honor. She has taught at Bethel for six years. “Katie is very compassionate and she has a very positive attitude. She uses a variety of techniques to keep students engaged. For instance, she integrates music to help students retain information,” Lewis said. Hillcrest High School, one of the two high schools serving Simpsonville, boasted 26 Palmetto Fellows and its students earned $10,068,400 in college scholarships during the 2016-17 school year, according to G. Bryan Skipper, Hillcrest’s principal. The schools in Simpsonville and the entire county emphasize the importance of preparing for life beyond high school as part of the Graduation Plus initiative, which begins when young children enter school for the first time. Through this initiative, elementary school faculties are focused on building a sound foundation in the basic disciplines and increasing students’ exposure to a variety of careers. At the middle school level, enhanced academic rigor is paired with greater exposure to career and college opportunities and an introduction to 16 basic career clusters. During high school, students are now building their electives around potential college or career paths. The Golden Strip Career Technology Center serves schools in the Simpsonville area. It offers career preparation in culinary arts, web design, welding, carpentry, automotive technology and collision repair, HVAC, law enforcement, and more.

Greenville County Schools is helping all of their students develop world-class skills by providing diverse opportunities for individual growth through project-based learning and the implementation of innovative courses in the arts, architecture, engineering, industry, business, law, agriculture, health science, and more. The district’s school choice program allows students to focus their studies on their individual interests and skills by providing the option to attend one of several magnet schools in the area. Currently, approximately 15 percent of the district’s students take advantage of school choice and are spread between a Fine Arts Center, four International Baccalaureate Diploma high schools, four career and technical education centers, and other schools with specific focuses. “Greenville County Schools is preparing students for their future after graduation with career-ready skills and certifications through the Graduation Plus initiative,” said Superintendent Dr. W. Burke Royster. “The GCS graduation rate has reached an all-time high of 86.8 percent. Our students’ scores exceed the national average on the SAT college entrance test and our college-bound seniors’ ACT scores outpace the state and national averages. Additionally, the district awarded nearly 500 industry certifications last year.” Incidentally, the graduation rate at Simpsonville’s Hillcrest High School – 90 percent – is even higher than the district average and in 2017, 89 percent of those graduates announced their intention to attend a two or four-year college or a technical school. A popular option for higher education after high school is nearby Greenville Technical College’s Brashier Campus (GTC). It is the most convenient community college campus for residents of Simpsonville, Mauldin, Fountain Inn, and other nearby communities. It houses core programs including nursing, welding, industrial maintenance/mechatronics, and fire science. The campus also offers high quality general education courses that transfer to any college or university. For this reason, GTC is a good place for local residents to begin their higher education. In fact, high school students are encouraged to pursue dual enrollment in GTC courses while simultaneously completing their high school requirements. Greenville Technical College also plays an active part in the surrounding community, according to Frank Wilburn, Campus Director at the Brashier Campus. He and his colleagues understand that an educated workforce attracts new businesses and encourages economic development in a region.

Wilburn partners closely with local municipal, business, and education leaders on a variety of local councils in order to foster community growth. “Attracting new businesses and supporting the success of current businesses is vital to every community,” Wilburn said, “because business and industry not only provide jobs to area residents, which in turn allow them to buy groceries, gas, and housing, but they also contribute funding to subsidize the roads, schools, parks, libraries, and other public resources that every community relies on.”

LEADERSHIP SIMPSONVILLE IDENTIFYING TOMORROW’S LEADERS TODAY!

T

he local business community has an invaluable resource in the Simpsonville Area Chamber of Commerce and its staff, and the community at-large benefits from one of the Chamber’s most noteworthy ongoing initiatives – Leadership Simpsonville. Leadership Simpsonville is an annual program offered through the Simpsonville Area Chamber of Commerce to any interested individual who lives or works in Simpsonville. The program opens doors for local business men and women with the desire and ability to shape the future of their local community. Participants must complete a rigorous application process, then they must uphold the program’s strict attendance policy and meet all program requirements in order to graduate. Both Chamber members and non-members are invited to participate, which fosters groups with a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives on the community. The graduating class is publicly recognized with a formal graduation ceremony at the Chamber’s Annual Banquet each spring. This dynamic program supports the development of corporate and community leaders by introducing them to the various aspects of developing and maintaining a vibrant community, helping them to establish dialogue with fellow community leaders, facilitating their contributions to the betterment of the community. Leadership Simpsonville constantly fuels a network of strong, informed, community-minded leaders that will go on to work for our local businesses, start their own ventures, and continue to serve those around them. The Chamber’s President & CEO (and 2013 Leadership Simpsonville alum), Allison McGarity, works closely with board members and fellow Leadership alumni to coordinate the annual curriculum and activities. “Our Leadership program is a dynamic, nine-month journey designed to cultivate our local corporate and community leaders. We work to ensure that each year features timely, relevant opportunities for the class. Many Leadership Simpsonville graduates go on to serve on the Chamber’s board, earn major promotions at work, and serve in various levels of government. Alumni of our Leadership program include many recognizable community leaders and influencers, many of whom are still active members of our Chamber.” The program begins with a two-day retreat and continues with monthly

sessions that cover topics such as local and state government, education, arts and history, public safety, and quality of life. The monthly sessions include facility tours, expert presentations, and one-on-one meetings with aspirational community leaders. One way in which this program has had a very visible and direct impact on the local community can be found in the 2016 class project. The 2016 class took on the task of raising funding to build a brand new Sensory Playground at Simpsonville’s City Park. Prior to their project, families affected by autism had to travel up to 45 minutes to other communities with sensory playground equipment. The 2016 class surpassed their fundraising goals by raising over $30,000 in just nine months to make their vision a reality. The playground is scheduled to be installed in 2017, and even the installation itself will be a team effort between the Leadership class, the city’s recreation department, and members of the community who will one day get to safely play on the equipment. As the business community continues to grow, McGarity is excited about the future of the Chamber and its Leadership program. “We are constantly looking for new strategies to shake things up and increase the value that this program provides for the business community here in Simpsonville,” she said. “Leadership Simpsonville is one of our pillar programs which upholds the Chamber’s mission statement. We are very proud of our graduates and excited for what is to come.”

ECONOMIC VITALITY

F

or many long-time residents of Simpsonville, today’s skyline is not the same as it always has been … or in some cases, was yesterday. Over the last 10 to 20 years, the Simpsonville community has become a popular residential area for young couples, families, and recent retirees due to its proximity to larger cities like Greenville and its convenient offerings for shopping, dining, and recreation. In roughly that same time frame, the population within the city limits has increased by roughly 133 percent, and the trend will likely continue for the foreseeable future. While the number of residents and rooftops has increased over time, the pace of local commercial development has not always kept up. Understandably the recession of 2008-2009 hurt many of the investors who had eyes on Simpsonville, and many plans were put on pause. Our community also has a strong desire to keep our small-town charm, so leaders are cautious when it comes to considering major shifts in planning and zoning strategies. For a long time, plots of land have gone underutilized, “For Sale or Lease” signs have been common, and residents had to drive 15-20 minutes to enjoy fine dining, shop for pet supplies, or buy organic groceries for their families. But now all of this is (finally) changing fast. Simpsonville’s business landscape can best be broken into four trending commercial areas: Downtown, Fairview Road/Harrison Bridge Road, West Georgia Road, and the Five Forks area. The Downtown area offers the traditional Main Street business district with local shops and restaurants, community events, and historic architecture. The Fairview Road/Harrison Bridge Road area features “bog box” retailers and nationally branded commercial developments. The Five Forks area has an intriguing variety of local and regional franchises and “not-quite-as-big box” retailers. The West Georgia Road area includes a satellite campus of Greenville Technical College, medical offices, and grocery stores. Each of these trending commercial areas is evolving to meet the needs of Simpsonville’s residents. The Downtown area has seen a lot of transition in the last five years alone, with many storefronts changing hands and becoming destination

retailers like antique dealers, specialty restaurants or bars, and unique gift stores. These types of businesses attract visitors and residents alike, and offer a reason to “stay a while” and enjoy Simpsonville’s history along with its present. They city and county have worked together on some beautification and improvement projects, and are currently working to bring a main trunk of the popular Swamp Rabbit Trail right through downtown along Main Street. The types of businesses in the Fairview Road/Harrison Bridge Road area have remained fairly constant in recent years, but the size of this area is quickly expanding. The most recent developments to be added to the footprint of this commercial area is a shopping center with 120,000 square feet to accommodate several anchor retailers and junior retailers. The center was developed on old farm land, and the architecture of the buildings gives homage to that heritage. Other retailers that have entered the Fairview/ Harrison Bridge area in recent years include PetCo and PetsMart, TJ Maxx, Michaels, Planet Fitness, and a Bee Safe Storage facility. There are still available tracts of land in this area, so there is no doubt that more is in the works for the years ahead. The Five Forks area of Simpsonville boasts one of the highest median household incomes in the entire state, and a lot of the commercial development in that area has come in to serve those markets. Lowes Foods is a regional grocery chain that opened a new store model in the area to offer fresh local produce, made-to-order meals, a full-service deli and bakery, plus all of the brands typically found at the grocery store. A boutique fitness studio, fresh smoothie shop, and a salon have joined their shopping strip. Later this year, the newest branch of the Greenville County Library System (and largest branch besides the Main Branch) will open at Five Forks. The West Georgia Road area may be the least developed area of the four, but that too is rapidly changing. In recent years, a Neighborhood Wal-Mart has opened, several multi-family complexes are in process, and available land is being snatched up and announcements of planned developments should be made in the coming weeks and months. With all of the growth and development around town, Simpsonville is an exciting place to live and work. As time has proven, an increase in rooftops leads to an increase in businesses which leads to an increase in job opportunities which leads to an increase of residents who need rooftops… and so on and so on! Simpsonville’s dedication to thoughtful and sustainable growth has helped it become as one of the most buzzworthy communities in the Upstate of South Carolina.

FEATURED BUSINESSES O’MALLEY DENTAL PUTS PATIENTS AT EASE

W

alk into the reception area of O’Malley Dental, and you’ll immediately feel at ease. The personal, friendly atmosphere of this private, local office is a rarity these days. Dr. Ryan O’Malley runs a stateof-the-art general dental practice at 419 SE Main St., Ste. 100. With a focus on patient education and comprehensive care, O’Malley Dental has become a “one stop shop” for the people of Simpsonville, with services including fillings, crowns, implants (placement and restoration), bone grafts, root canals, dentures, obstructive sleep apnea appliances, and everything dental-related in between. “As a convenience to our patients we try to offer as many services in-house as possible. Patients do not like to be referred out for things, especially when they find a doctor they trust.” Years of vacationing on Hilton Head Island with his family in his youth are what led the Upstate New York native to open his dental practice in South Carolina, the state he considered a second home. Dr. O’Malley opened his doors in Simpsonville in June 2013 after working as an associate for a few years when he first graduated from the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and completed his residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital. “I am so pleased and grateful to be in Simpsonville,” he said. “I love it here. The Upstate of South Carolina is truly the southern version of Upstate New York, so I feel very much at home. And the weather is certainly better!” Dr. O’Malley studied business during his undergraduate years at Villanova University near Philadelphia but, “about halfway through, I decided that I wanted a more altruistic occupation,” he recalled. “My father was an internist and my mother was a dental hygienist and she always

extolled the virtues of dentistry. I knew I wanted to be involved with health care but I had seen the demands that a career as a physician put on my father and I did not want that lifestyle, so becoming a dentist seemed like a good compromise.” Since opening his doors four years ago, Dr. O’Malley has amassed hundreds of active patients, which is phenomenal for a start-up practice. Dr. O’Malley is the only dentist at O’Malley Dental, and he employs two assistants, one dental hygienist, and a receptionist. His wife, Chelsea, serves as his office manager. “I am much more interested in the quality of care I provide than anything else,” O’Malley said. “This is not a turn-and-burn practice and I have received a tremendous response from the people of Simpsonville because they understand that all of us in the practice make a concerted effort to emphasize patient comfort, compassionate care, and quality results. We take the time to carefully focus on each and every patient and stress patient education.” Dr. O’Malley is a devout Catholic and parishioner of St. Mary’s in downtown Greenville. “I feel that I have an obligation to deliver the very best care possible. My father always told me to practice as if the patient was looking over one shoulder and the Almighty over the other,” he added. Becoming involved in the Simpsonville Chamber of Commerce is the best investment he has made since opening his practice, Dr. O’Malley acknowledged. “I really enjoy it and that participation has given me great exposure to the community.” O’Malley Dental actively participates in the Chamber’s Senior Health Fair, Oktoberfest, Sippin’ in Simpsonville, and Halloween at Heritage Park, and is an active member of the Main Street Committee. They were also nominated this year for the Simpsonville Chamber’s “A-list” Awards as one of the best dental offices in Simpsonville.

EDWARD JONES INVESTMENTS PERSONALIZES SOLUTIONS

E

dward Jones Investments is a national firm that provides financial advice to individuals, families, businesses, and nonprofit organizations. It has nearly 14,000 offices nationwide, four of which are located in Simpsonville. Each Edward Jones financial advisor manages his or her own office, as opposed to having multiple advisors sharing one office. The Simpsonville office at 38 Ray E Talley Ct., Ste. D, is managed by Kevin Willmot, who has been with the firm since 2010. After years of working in sales in a variety of areas ranging from technology to staffing to uniforms, he chose to take over this Edward Jones office that opened in 2006. Willmot has one branch office administrator, Jennifer Baucom, who works with him. She came to Simpsonville in 2008 after working in the Edward Jones corporate office in St. Louis for almost five years. “Jennifer’s experience with the products and the customers has been invaluable to our branch,” Willmot said. “We enjoy figuring out what is important to each client, partnering with them and then coming up with personalized solutions to help them reach their goals,” Willmot said. “The Edward Jones model is a unique one in that each advisor has an individual office in the community where their clients live so each of us works with our clients for the rest of their lives, keeping them on track and hopefully, having some fun along the way. That is why Edward Jones has won so many JD Power Awards over the years.” “Ours is a full-service brokerage which helps clients invest in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, IRAs, money markets, CDs, college savings plans, annuities, life insurance, and even long-term care insurance,” the

Clemson University alumnus noted. “We help with growth, protection, income, and tax efficient wealth transfer for our clients, by using appropriate investments and insurance as tools. Partnering with CPAs and Estate Attorneys allows us to really serve the entire financial needs of our clients.” “We help clients find solutions that fit their stage of life and their risk comfort level. This is truly a service business,” Willmot said. “We work with people from 20 to 90 and help provide them with a road map for their financial future. We can assist people who are just starting out, as well as those anywhere along their journey whose road map seems out of date. “We like to meet face-to-face with our clients once or twice a year and in between over the phone or through a WebX appointment. It is important that we meet with anyone who has experienced a major life event like a marriage, the birth of a baby, a death, a divorce, retirement, or job change. We also like to assist when a client is doing their estate planning with an attorney so that we can make the necessary changes of beneficiaries and put assets into trusts, if that is indicated,” he said. Willmot is active in the Simpsonville community. He is a member of both the Simpsonville and the Greenville Chambers of Commerce and serves on the Simpsonville Chamber’s Ambassador’s Council. He co-founded a new leads group called Chamber Connects and completed Leadership Simpsonville in 2016. As his service project for Leadership Simpsonville, Willmot helped raise over $20,000 to build a new playground in City Park, geared toward children with sensory disabilities. He is also active in the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease.
