Who We Are

Since forming in 2015, Pintail Capital Advisors has quickly become one of the top commercial real estate groups in the upstate of South Carolina. Our company name has its roots in the characteristics of the Pintail duck, elegant in its design and graceful in flight. Sleek and aerodynamic, the Pintail has a speed and agility which has earned the species the nickname, "greyhound of the air." Pintail Capital Advisors brings a similar focus to the markets we serve through proactive service, excellent accessibility, and our client-centric approach.
