The Princeton Review has released their 2017 edition of the book Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck. This book lists the top 200 schools around the country that have the best return on investment ratings. Making it into this elite list of the nation’s best colleges…….Clemson University!

To find the top 200 schools, the Princeton Review weights the ROI ratings on a 40 point scale. They examine academics, the ratio of cost/financial aid to graduation rate, alumni salaries, student debt, and alumni job satisfaction. It also examines career development opportunities, such as availability of internships.

Clemson University was recognized as one of the top schools for students due to its affordable price, excellent education, and career preparation. Along with its beautiful campus and strong ties to the local community, this incredible school offers its students' world class academics along with a thriving social life through the athletic and extracurricular programming.



Clemson University sets its students up for success after graduation. In fact, graduates with a bachelor’s degree have a median starting salary of $53,000 and median mid-career salary of $90,800, as found by data collected for the book.

Within the book, Clemson University also received recognition in two special categories. It was named the 6th Best Alumni Network and the 10th Best for Internship Opportunities!

Congrats to Clemson University on this remarkable recognition!

Call Clemson "Home"

by SBE


   Whether you seek the comfort of Southern hospitality, the exhilaration of college football, the relaxation of day on the lake, or the solitude in a nature hike, the town of Clemson, South Carolina delivers it all! Located in what is locally known as the “Western Upstate” region of South Carolina, Clemson hosts a variety of nearby activities to entertain the senses during all seasons of the year.

     Admire the stunning Spring blooms with an astonishing assortment of remarkable flora at the South Carolina Botanical Garden. It boasts 295 acres of nature trails, streams, butterfly gardens, and wildflower meadows along with a 70-acre arboretum.

    A Clemson Summer offers the perfect time of year for foggy mornings spent paddle boarding on Lake Keowee and Lake Hartwell, and sunset on the dock while sipping your favorite glass of wine.

     Relish in a cool Autumn evening grilling and socializing at a Clemson University tailgate; or if you prefer nature, take a short ride to see the splashes of color on the leaves in the foothills of nearby Highlands and Cashiers, NC. 

    A mild Winter with the average temperature between 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit invites you to Christmas shop and dine up the road in Greenville, followed by unwinding in front of a warm fire and losing yourself in your favorite book. 

Let us help you find your little piece of paradise so you too can call the Western Upstate “home”!

Condos sold in Clemson

    If you have college age kids, you know that sending them to college is no easy task. Besides dealing with the awareness that they are now leaving home or thinking about how to pay for tuition, you want them to have a good place to live too. You could have them live on campus, or you could rent a place for them. Those are good options but there is another option parents rarely think about. How about buying a place for them to live? The real estate market in the Clemson area is so fertile for buyers now so much that buying a home in the Clemson area holds more productive gains for you than renting especially, if you have kids going to school at Clemson in the coming semester.
