Fort Mill, SC Real Estate
The town of Fort Mill was established in 1873 and received it name from it’s location between two areas. The first built by the British to protect the Catawba Indians and the second area of Webb’s Mill. Initially, Fort Mill was on 4.6 square miles and in 2008 the town held a public forum about the proposed annexation that doubled the town’s size. Fort Mill is also known as Fort Mill Township in the northernmost past of York County. The city has been booming since the early 2,000’s and has over 15,000 people who live in the town but overall close to 40,000 living within the entire township. It is currently one of the fastest growing cities in the country.
If you love the outdoors, Fort Mill has a 2,300-acre natural preserve called Anne Springs Close Greenway that offers lakes, hiking, cycling and horseback riding trails. This was the vision of the Close family who owned over 7,000 acres in Fort Mill and wanted to preserve the land as it’s a buffer from Charlotte’s growing metropolis. The Close family developed Clear Springs Development in 1997 with the goal to bring more businesses to York County and in 1998 began its long-term plan of developing Fort Mill with the Baxter Village neighborhood.

We were extremely pleased with overall service and very appreciative to have sold so quickly in this depressed market!
Great Company, Great people!!!
We are nothing but thrilled with the level of service the team provides! You had us with our first sell, but this one exceeded expectations! You have an exceptional team and we will never use another agency! You are the #1 choice and will hear from us again!
You were always pleasant when we talked, you were ready to answer any questions. I could not ask for anyone to be any better than you all were.
I live out of state and this team made it very easy for me to sell my house without having to come to South Carolina. Thank you very much!
“Thank you so much to you and your entire team – we had such a great experience. It has been, by far, the easiest real estate experience we have ever had. We will definitely recommend you guys to anyone we can!”
The house was on the market for one and a half years, until the Stephen Cooley Team sold it in almost two weeks! Such a friendly and professional group!
You folks, including you Stephen, know how to market and sell homes. Great job again!!
This was a pleasant experience. Everyone was helpful, knowledgeable, and always available. Already referred to friends.
The Stephen Cooley team is the best! You made our experience easy, painless and seamless from start to finish. You earned every cent we paid. Thanks.
