Our firm opened for business in 1927 as Hanckel & Holcombe and changed its name to Holcombe, Fair & Lane in 1996. Since its inception, the firm has provided commercial sales and leasing services, expanding to land real estate shortly thereafter. One of the oldest real estate firms in South Carolina, the firm was the first real estate company in the area to narrow its focus away from general real estate to concentrate on specific segments of the real estate market.
