Flagship Properties is No Stranger to Rising During Tough Times
Flagship Properties was founded in Greenville, South Carolina in 2008 by local real estate businessman H. Benjamin Smith, III (aka Benji) with a dream and determination at the height of the Great Recession. In 2010, Flagship acquired Riverside Property Management, enabling the company to add Property Management to its commercial and residential real estate services.

Jon Pickhardt, a leader within the local real estate community, partnered with Smith in 2011 as operating partner of Property Management and Residential Sales. Smith and Pickhardt acquired boutique property management company Rent The Upstate in 2012, ultimately achieving an increased presence in Greenville’s growing Eastside. Flagship Property Management is now a leading property management company serving Greater Greenville and continuing to strive for unparalleled excellence for both property investors and tenants alike.

“We are excited about the range of services we can offer clients with our expanded group. Our acquisition has allowed us access to some key former team members from Convergent, and we welcome their skill-set as we prepare to merge best practices from both companies to offer best in class service to owners, tenants and vendors.” -
