Company Spotlight: Serrus


FRIENDSHIP, EXPERIENCE, AND opportunity have turned a real estate investment firm into a business that’s making the American Dream a reality for clients in the Carolinas.

Steve Mudge and Leighton Cubbage founded Serrus Capital Partners in the depths of the recession. They met on a high school all-star team, and their bond has grown through many moves and career changes.

Serrus started out buying single-family homes, fixing them up, and renting or reselling them. Later, Serrus bought a couple of failed condominium projects and unfinished community developments. “We were in a recession,” Mudge said. “In real estate, there’s opportunity in a recession if you buy right.”

Judge and Cubbage built an experience real estate team, and Serrus has evolved to include real estate investment, community development, and traditional brokerage services for buying and selling homes. Series expanded to include property management when company leaders saw they could provide a higher level of service to investors and tenants than the companies they were hiring. Serrus now manages more than 300 homes in the Upstate where rental properties are in high demand.

“At Serrus, we take care of your home just like our own,” said Ollie Medford, Director of Serrus Property Management. “I’m really proud of how our team takes the extra time to make sure owners and tenants are happy with our service.”

Serrus’ Greenville Real Estate Sales division makes sure its clients get great representation. Leader Kimberly Bookert knows the ins and outs of the market, and she guarantees her customers will have a positive experience. “My down-home approach really separates me from the others,” Bookert said. “I love to laugh and appreciate the small things in life.”

Serrus is also doing business in the Asheville and Clemson markets where people are looking to live, retire, or buy a second home. In Asheville, Creekside Village is an amenitized residential community with homes from the upper $200,000s, and Residences at Biltmore is a mixed-use condominium project in Biltmore Village managed like a hotel.

Mudge and Cubbage’s alma mater is also a big draw for real estate. The Falls at Meehan is a mixed-use community under development with homes from the upper $100,000s. Mudge says no one else is building a community with amenities in the Clemson area in that price point.

Serrus is looking to connect with Upstate homeowners interested in selling or renting properties. Let Ollie, Kimberly, and Serrus Real Estate and Property Management help you with all your real estate needs!
