Originally from Augusta, GA, Jimmy Dye has called Charleston home for three decades. His lifelong affinity for the Lowcountry began as a child when he spent summers along the South Carolina coast. After graduating from The University of Georgia, Jimmy moved to his summertime stomping ground of Charleston, launching a restaurant in the historic district then transitioning into the real estate industry. He quickly became a leader in the Lowcountry real estate market, and in 2006, Jimmy Dye and his business partner joined forces to launch The Cassina Group.

He is also a member of REALM™, a collection of the most accomplished real estate professionals in the world, which allows him to leverage the power of their global network to match qualified clients and buyers.

Jimmy's extensive knowledge of Charleston's coastal ecosystem and landscape has helped him develop a keen eye for residential and commercial properties in this unique market.

He is an expert fisherman and enjoys participating in tournament sport fishing and inshore fishing, as well as other watersports including paddle boarding and surfing.

We sold our condo at an excellent price within several days of publication of our well produced photo and video announcement. We dealt with Jimmy Dye who was very knowledgeable of the area and had a great understanding of the market. The Cassina Group personnel were very helpful and always available.

We had an exceptional experience with The Cassina Group in our recent home sale. The entire process, from pre-listing to after our close, was seamless, professional and top-notch. Jimmy Dye and his team were always available during the process, and they went above and beyond to ensure that all the details of our sale were taken care of by closing. We highly recommend The Cassina Group.

We inherited a home in the Charleston area and wanted to sell it. Not being from the area we didn’t really know where to begin. Jimmy and his staff came highly recommended to us and they did not disappoint! From start to finish they helped us every step of the way. They went above and beyond to make the process smooth and easy. Every suggestion they made was the right one!

We first met Jimmy Dye in 2011 when we were shopping for our first house in Charleston. He helped us so much, made the experience delightful and was with us every step, until we found what we were looking for. Since then he has helped us through 2 other transactions; selling the home he helped us find and buying an incredible lot to build our new house."

"Everyone at The Cassina Group is so helpful and friendly! My agent was Jimmy Dye and his extensive knowledge of both real estate and the local Charleston community proved invaluable in my experience working with his company."

Sidney Wagner

"The house that I purchased was a new listing when Jimmy notified me. It was in an area of high demand and was a quick sale. Once the contract was accepted the staff provided excellent follow through service all the way to the closing. It was an extremely simple and efficient process especially since I do not live in Charleston. I would highly recommend Jimmy and the Cassina Group.”
