Holcombe, Fair & Lane has been a local partnership of real estate professionals serving the South Carolina coastal plain since 1927. We assist property and business owners in navigating the complex waters of residential, rural and commercial real estate transactions. In doing so, we strive to promote the careful and responsible development of natural and commercial resources in SC.

Land Conservation

Our Unmatched Expertise

Holcombe, Fair & Lane has consistently provided conservation-minded clients with dedicated support and knowledgeable service in the purchase and sale of conservation properties throughout the Lowcountry and the sea islands. The firm has brokered all types of  land transactions including historic estates, farms, and timberlands – as well as properties geared for hunting, fishing, horses and other recreational uses.

Personal Commitment

Most importantly, every member of the firm personally owns and manages rural property and possesses a strong commitment to land conservation. Moreover, our brokers and agents support local and national conservation organizations and have played leading roles in South Carolina’s conservation movement. As a result, we have a deep understanding of land management principles and the conservation easement process.


As real estate professionals and property owners, the Holcombe, Fair & Lane team is uniquely qualified to advise clients on the many nuances and special considerations involved with Lowcountry land and commercial real estate transactions. In addition, our brokers and agents are extensively involved in community endeavors related to our work. We hold leadership positions or serve as members of real estate associations, local banks, environmental organizations, wildlife management groups, and local and national conservation initiatives. Broad real estate experience combined with personal commitment and expertise in land preservation and commercial property transactions, create a winning combination for our clients.

We, as a family talk a lot about the meaning of stewardship, of duty to community, the land, and the generations to come...You have helped us honor that responsibility in ways that we could not have achieved alone.

We bought and sold amazing properties with Charles and Huger so we were on both sides of the transactions. We cannot say enough good things about Charles and Huger! They were prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and professional at all times, and Meranda was a dream! We would HIGHLY recommend Holcombe, Fair & Lane! Thank you all!

Without question, the real estate professionals Will Martin and Huger Sinkler met every expectation during the process of finding buyers for several family properties within the metropolitan Charleston area. The entire process of working with Holcombe, Fair, & Lane—from finding buyers for four different properties through multiple closings—ran smoothly. Will and Huger always displayed deep knowledge both about commercial and vacant land issues, and we were consistently impressed with their prompt responses, suggestions, and communications about showing our properties.

We have worked with Huger Sinkler for almost 10 years. He has skillfully advised and guided us in both selling and purchasing real estate and we’ve had the best experiences and outcomes. He is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. He is very responsive, answers all our questions, and is always one step ahead. We could not recommend him more. He is excellent!

I have worked with Charles Lane for many years in connection with the leasing and management of a commercial property. He and others in his firm, including Tammy, Lisa and Miranda, are all very professional, experienced, great to work with and go beyond what is expected of them. They are a great team.
