We moved our listing to Todd after many months of stagnant activity. Immediately, we began seeing our house listed in more places and getting more foot traffic through our home. Todd was very quick to follow up with buyers and provided us constant updates. Next time we buy or sell, we’ll be using Todd.
We sold our house last year. I was referred to Todd Kohlhepp by my boss, and was very happy with the job he did to sell my house. Before going to Mr. Kohlhepp, we worked with a franchised agent who got me two showings and no offers in the six months we were contracted with him. He also pressured us to lower our list price several times and insisted that we meet with him constantly. At the time, we were very frustrated and felt that the only two showings we’d had were not the kind of buyers who could be approved to purchase our house. Todd listed my home at the price we needed and got us several showings almost immediately. Using his experience and knowledge of the area, he was able to bring in the right kind buyers quickly, getting us showings almost immediately. We received our first offer about two months after our first meeting with him. He made the process easy and as painless as possible and got us the money we needed in a timeframe that worked for us. I was more than satisfied with the job he did and have recommended him to several friends as well as my brother, who is currently looking for a house in Greenville.
Todd has been absolutely wonderful to work with. He has gone above and beyond in so many ways. I live out of town and he has essentially helped me manage some major renovation projects on the house to get it on the market. In addition to listing our house, Todd has also found a renter for us and manages the property. Todd is very thorough, has amazing follow through, and always gets the job done. I would highly recommend Todd.
Our house was originally listed with another agent. After 11 months there were few showings and no offers. I checked around with friends and was recommended to use Todd.
The first phone call with Todd was the best ! While we were talking he was looking at my current listing an evaluating what he could do with it. He put together a strategy in 15 minutes. We talked about how he would market the house, the price point, the open houses that would start immediately, and how he expected to sell the house in no time. It was a no brainer for me to make the change to list the house with Todd. I felt like finally someone is looking out for us.
Well, he delivered on that promise. In just 6 months of the house being listed with Todd….IT WAS SOLD!!!
The selling process with Todd was amazing. He is an awesome agent! He is accessible, professional, honest, and he delivers on his promises. I was so disappointed with the old lack-luster agent (the fluffy agent) and I just wanted someone that would get down to business…and Todd did just that.
Would I recommend Todd? ABSOLUTELY ! He will get the job done when no other one can.

10 years after motorcycle shop murders, investigators remain stumped
After nearly 10 years and more than 750 leads, law enforcement officials and victims’ families remain stumped in one of South Carolina’s most heinous killings: A gunman who walked into a motorcycle shop, killed the owner and three employees, and slipped out undetected.
Nov. 6 will mark a decade since the deaths at Superbike Motorsports in Spartanburg County, on a two-lane highway headed from the city toward the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sheriff Chuck Wright has vowed to get the killer off the street, but he now admits he may be waiting for a jailhouse confession.
For the families of the store’s owner, service manager, mechanic and bookkeeper, the search for answers is taking a toll. The parents of one victim moved to South Carolina to find justice, but say their hopes that the killer will face justice are fading.
Veteran law enforcement officials say that in recent state history, they can’t remember another mass shooting remaining unsolved for so long.
Investigators say all four victims were killed with the same 9 mm pistol. They think the killer came in the back, perhaps through an open garage door, and killed mechanic Chris Sherbert, 26, as he worked. Bookkeeper Beverly Guy, 52, was found just outside the bathroom in the middle of the showroom. Her son, shop owner Scott Ponder, 30, was found just outside the door in the parking lot, and service manager Brian Lucas, 29, in the doorway; officials say they may have been trying to run. They also cite evidence that the killer may have circled back and shot some victims in the head to ensure they were dead. He was a good shot: Officials say he missed his moving targets only a few times.
Wright says that just before the deaths, Ponder had started a bill of sale for a motorcycle about to be sold. He hadn’t written down the customer’s name, credit card number or other identifying information.
Investigators won’t say whether there were unidentified fingerprints or DNA in the shop — only that forensic evidence is limited.
“I think this one will be solved in the jailhouse,” Wright recently told The Associated Press. “There are very few cold-blooded killers who won’t talk.”
Wright was elected sheriff in 2004, about a year after the shootings. He said the investigation could have been handled better but wouldn’t give specifics, mentioning only that crime scene technicians missed processing an entire room and had to return the next day.
Wright and his investigators are pushing hard a revised sketch of a customer who was in the store less than an hour before the killings. When Wright released the drawing in March 2012, he said he thought that man was the killer. Now Wright says he’s not so sure, but he still believes the man has information to crack the case.
Investigators do think the killer was a disgruntled customer. Through the Internet, Ponder sold nationwide. A map in the sheriff’s office has pushpins where Ponder’s motorcycles were sold. Each pin is somewhere a suspect might live, a place where investigators want to get the word out.
The victims’ families have their theories, too. “It runs through my mind constantly,” said Lorraine Lucas, the mother of Brian Lucas. “I run that day through my head when I first wake up, and it is the last thing I do at night.”
Time has given the families plenty of chances to come up with motives. Some are bizarre, they admit, but with no arrests, they say no one can be sure.
Ponder was searching for his biological father, who disappeared decades ago — maybe the killer didn’t want the shop owner to learn about his dad. Maybe a rival motorcycle owner was angry about Ponder’s success and decided to cut out the competition. Maybe the man who discovered the bodies should be looked at — he saw Ponder and Lucas bleeding just outside the shop and stepped over his dead friends to call 911 from inside the shop even though he had a cellphone.
“We want them to look at every single angle, just not that it was a customer angry at the business,” said Tom Lucas, Brian’s father.
On Nov. 6, the families will gather in Spartanburg to celebrate their loved ones’ lives. One of the speakers will be Scotty Ponder, 9 — his mother was pregnant with him when father Scott Ponder was killed.
Since the shooting, Melissa Ponder has gone through two divorces. She said she was shattered over losing Scott and is now sorry she has brought men into her life and into that tough situation.
“I used to think, there’s no way a crime this big is not going to get solved. But the fact somebody was able to pull the trigger, end four people’s lives and go on their way and hasn’t felt bad for 10 years, I don’t know,” she said.
Tom and Lorraine Lucas also feel their hope fading. Tom Lucas said he looks down the road to the 20th anniversary of his son’s death and can see himself with a walker, still raising hell.
“How can you get away with a killing like this?” Lorraine Lucas said.
The families say they understand that the sheriff’s office is trying to solve the case, and Wright said it keeps him up at night, too. He said he doesn’t fault the families for holding on to any theory or version of events.
“But in the end, I need probable cause. I need a case that can go to trial,” Wright said.
Terry Guy lost his wife, Beverly Guy, and his stepson. He said he used to dream that deputies would allow him into the killer’s cell so he could get his own justice. But over the past 10 years, he’s had a change of heart. He fell in love with and married Brian Lucas’ sister. Now, Guy said, he just wants to offer the killer forgiveness, and he’s sure of only one thing about the investigation.
“I know what I’ve done, and I know I didn’t do it,” Guy said. “So who is a suspect? Everyone but me.”
