York, SC Real Estate
Welcome to the White Rose City, York! A little history about the town, Yorkville’s first settlers were the Catawba Indians. The English first had contact with the Catawba Indians in 1673. The first white settlers came from the north, Pennsylvania and Virginia, in the early 1750’ the first European settlers came to York in 1850’s. Originally the town of Yorkville was known as Fergus’s Crossroads for a tavern that was located at the interception of Rutherfordton to Camden and the road from Charlottesburg to Augusta. By 1850, the population rose to 2,000 with the Kings Mountain Railroad line was being built in 1852. In 1854 the Yorkville Female College was established and this was later known as the McCelvey Center. In 1915, the ‘ville’ was dropped from the name and today is better known as York.
Today York is known for its diverse neighborhoods, historic district and recreational facilities. It is the home of Meritor, a global supplier of drive train, mobility, braking and aftermarket options for vehicles.
York is a popular place for commuters to live who work in the Charlotte area, it’s far enough away from the city to better known as the country but close enough to be within driving distance in case you work in Uptown.

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!
Your team was very understanding and compassionate with my situation. The bad experience I had with a prior agent, your team made me forget it and look forward to a brighter day. I have nothing but “praise” for your team. Thank you.
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.
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!
I just want to thank everyone for all that you did for me. You are all so very personable and I enjoyed communicating with you. Thank You!
We were extremely pleased with overall service and very appreciative to have sold so quickly in this depressed market!
I felt you knew what you were doing and had confidence you were handling everything properly.
“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!”
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!
You folks, including you Stephen, know how to market and sell homes. Great job again!!
