Rock Hill, SC Real Estate
Rock Hill Rocks! It is the largest city in York County as well as the 5th largest city in the state and a quick drive up I-77 will take you directly into Charlotte, NC. Just a little history about Rock Hill, in 1852, Charlotte/Columbia/Augusta Railroad line was being built and during construction they passed through current day Rock Hill and stumbled on a small flinty hill and thus decided to name the area Rock Hill because of this.
Rock Hill gives its residents an array of options for scenery from beautiful riverfront views of the Catawba River to the historic downtown area with homes built in the 1840’s. Rock Hill is also home to the Catawba Indian Nation and the reserve is currently the only one within South Carolina.
Rock Hill has 27 total schools within its limits and that includes 17 elementary schools, 5 middle schools and 3 high schools. There are also 2 private schools for parents to choose from if they wish. Rock Hill has been called ‘Football City USA,’ by its locals due to the fact that the area’s high schools have produced so many NFL players for the size of the town. The area is also home to several colleges including Winthrop University, Clinton Junior College and York Technical college.
Today, Rock Hill experiencing steady growth and its city limits expand beyond its original limits with a population pushing 75,000. Since the early 2000’s Rock Hill has been honing in on it’s southern hospitality by hosting various festivals, building sports complexes and enhancing their public parks. The Downtown area is undergoing a large renovation to be rebranded as ‘Old Town’ to include more restaurants, Fountain Park and multi-family living spaces.

Great Company, Great people!!!
Crystal – Terri and I enjoyed meeting you today. Your attention to the sale of our condo was fantastic. We wouldn’t think of doing business with anyone but the Cooley Group in the future. Thanks for all your help! Mike & Terri
“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 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.
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.
This was a pleasant experience. Everyone was helpful, knowledgeable, and always available. Already referred to friends.
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!
We were extremely pleased with overall service and very appreciative to have sold so quickly in this depressed market!
You folks, including you Stephen, know how to market and sell homes. Great job again!!
It’s easy to understand how you are #1 in North and South Carolina!
