FLORENCE, S.C. – Pound Real Estate Partners LLC celebrated joining the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce with a ribbon cutting in the James Allen Plaza on Dargan Street on Tuesday.
Cutting the ribbon were broker-in-charge Patty K. Pound and co-owner Robert Pound, Realtor. They were joined by chamber staff and ambassadors.
Patty Pound said she has been in the real estate business for six years. Prior to that she was a professional photographer for about 25 years, and just recently gave that up to pursue her passion for real estate full time.

Her husband has been in real estate for 2 1/2 years and will earn his Broker's license when his three years as a Realtor are met. He comes to the business from the corporate world. He has lived in Florence for 30 years and has two daughters who are in college.
