John Dunnan - Your Local Real Estate Agent

John Dunnan’s family has been in the Charleston area for five generations since the founding of Yeamans Hall Club in 1925. John grew up in Washington DC, where he graduated from Saint Albans school and the Corcoran College of Art. Charleston was never far from John’s mind and he and his wife moved to Charleston part-time in 1993, and full-time in 2000 when their son was born.

John is a nationally known artist known for his gesture drawings, abstract paintings, and figurative sculptures. John learned from his grandmother to ‘leave the world a better place than you found it.’ John served on the Kennedy Center National Committee for the performing arts for 15 years, joined in 2001 and was chairman from 2005-7. John has also served on 3 other Kennedy Center Boards, the Circles Board, the International Committee on the Arts, and the Board of Trustees. John is now on the Charleston Stage board and the Council on the Arts at CoC. John also has served on the Boards of the Charleston Concert Association and is past chairman, the Spoleto Board, the Corcoran College of Art Board and past chairman of the alumni association and the MUSC Children’s Hospital Board.

John and his wife, Meredith, have restored many period homes in DC and Charleston, from their grand Georgetown home in DC 3265 N Street,  4 properties on Kiawah Island, and the following Charleston properties: small 1735 home 5 Elliott Street, the first postmaster's house 54 Tradd, an 18th century French Quarter building 121 Church Street, and their grand house on Charleston’s High Battery 2 Water Street. John knows Charleston and great houses would love to help you find or sell your perfect home.

My favorite thing about Charleston:
John Dunnan’s favorite place in Charleston is the High Battery. The high battery has only 12 homes, of which only seven are single family. The views, breeze, and history are unmatched. Strolling along the High Battery in the early evening with his wheaten terrier Ginger, and visiting with friends along the way, John is always seen smiling and his Facebook and Instagram pages are followed by thousands.
