Real estate and construction are the foundation of my professional career. My focus is the Anderson and Greenville area where I have worked and lived my entire life, carrying on my father’s legacy of Foster Construction Co., where we worked together on iconic buildings as The Federal Building and The Chamber of Commerce Buildings in Greenville. I have practiced real estate for over 26 years, and have extensive experience in residential/commercial real estate and property management. In addition, I continue to support Habitat for Humanity, where I previously served as board president in Anderson County. I am currently a licensed Broker, and one of two principals at Commonwealth Realty.
In my over 25 years in real estate, I have renovated and managed numerous homes and assisted countless families sell or buy the home of their dreams. I have developed a reputation of service, trust and helpfulness beyond compare. I look forward to assisting you with your real estate needs.”
Traverse is married to Debbie, who is a Presbyterian Minister and Life Coach. They have three children.
Traverse did an excellent job helping me sell my house. He was always encouraging and worked very hard. He actually helped me fix some things himself the day I listed – a drawer and a towel holder. He was always ready with a name of a repairman or house cleaner if I needed help. He went above and beyond his job during the stressful home inspection and repair negotiation process. Most of all he is truly a “stand-up” guy! He is honest, kind, and goes the extra mile! He did so well that I selected him to help me buy my next home as well!
I wanted to express my gratitude to you for how well you assisted me in selling my condo. I so appreciated your diligence in showing the property to prospective buyers, your promptness in returning my phone calls, and your guidance throughout the process. In addition, you went the extra mile on many occasions. For example, taking my elderly dog out for walks when there was a showing I could not be home for, and borrowing and installing an ionizer for 24 hours while I was away to remove pet odors. I truly felt as though I was your number one client. Your company’s customer service is far beyond what I expected and is very much appreciated. I would highly recommend you and your company to anyone I know buying or selling a home because of your outstanding service and commitment to your clients. Thank you again for all of your help.
I have known Traverse for 16 years, he is a seasoned professional real estate agent. Traverse has assisted us with the sale and purchase of a home. His professionalism and skills made both transactions worry free. We absolutely love our home that we purchased in 2013 with Traverse’s assistance. Traverse is a natural for helping families sell or purchase a home and I highly recommend him to anyone from a first time buyer to a veteran home seller.
We were so blessed to have Traverse recommended to us by a friend. We needed to sell a house in Belton while we lived 2 hours away. With years of experience in real estate, the construction industry and knowledge of the area, Traverse successfully guided us through the home selling process from beginning to end. He advised us with staging and listed the house for sale. Traverse has excellent resources for contractors who promptly made necessary repairs under his supervision. He is an excellent negotiator and helped us work through the terms of a contract. We closed in just three months! Traverse is very dependable and reliable and always did what he said he would do. He was also very accessible and always quick to respond to our calls. In our opinion, you won’t find a better realtor! If you ever want to talk to us for reference, we’d be happy to do so.
Working with Traverse was not only enjoyable but it was live diving into the deep end with a coach right beside you. I had never bought a house before and suddenly one near our rental came up for sale. A friend had recommended Traverse so we called him. He came right out, walked us through the house, helped us figure out what we should offer and took care of the rest. We were a day late and were the 2nd offer on the house. We lost that one, but Traverse helped us keep looking. We finally found the perfect house. My wife has a corporation and so getting approval for the mortgage was tricky – Traverse Must have called 10 different mortgage brokers with me and we finally found one that could work with our unusual financial situation. This delayed our closing, but Traverse not only worked that out for us but helped my wife hang in there when she was about ready to give up on the process. All the time we were working with the bank, Traverse was always there for questions, tips, and reminders of what we needed to do and when it needed doing. He held our hand the whole way and 2 months after finding the house we moved in. Traverse didn’t stop after the closing table though, he stayed with us and was (and is) still available with any questions we have. Traverse is experienced in not only real estate (and it shows) but he knows his way around a house; what and how to easily fix things, who to call in the area for services, he has a good eye for appraisals, and negotiated a great deal for us! I don’t plan on moving anytime soon, but if I did or if anyone I know is looking Traverse is the only name I think of to recommend or call. He’s also great with plant identification and suggestions for Landscaping.
Traverse did a fantastic job with both the listing, negotiation, and sale of our home as well as the negotiation and purchase of our new home. He’s a great guy to work with and his expertise and connections were Extraordinarily helpful. His lender suggestion proved invaluable to us! We wouldn’t think of working with anybody else in the future.
We really appreciated all that you did for us!
Traverse Foster is a real gentleman; he takes the time to get to know you and your needs. Debbie and I were very comfortable with Traverse and the entire CWR staff. These folks not only helped us sell property but also helped us in locating and negotiating our present property.
Traverse was most helpful in looking for our lake home, investigating the real contenders and when we found “the one” he really went to work from the offer right through and the actually past the closing. Traverse helped with disclosures, dealing with Army Corp, recommending mortgage companies/banks, surveyors, appraisers, closing attorneys, contractors for some renovations and even finding where closest dump sites in county. Ellen and I can’t say enough good about Traverse. Thank you seems so meager in comparison to what he brought to the real estate hunt and purchase.
When my husband and I decided to sell our old house and purchase a new one, Traverse Foster was whom I asked to help us. During the process of buying and selling, Traverse was always very professional and extremely helpful. Whenever I called him, he would either answer his phone right away or return my call in a timely manner. He spent a lot of time with me showing me houses in different neighborhoods. When it came time to make an offer, Traverse was there walking my husband and me through the process as if we were the only clients he had at the time.
Once we were in our new house, we asked Traverse to once again help us by listing our old house. He gave us some ideas to make the house more appealing and we were fortunate that his ideas worked because he sold our house in less than a month on the market.
Traverse made the experience of buying and selling less intimidating for our family and for that, we are grateful. If we were to decide to sell our current house and purchase another, we would not hesitate to contact Traverse Foster and let him guide us through the process again.
I have known Traverse Foster for more than twenty years and have dealt with him personally and professionally. In all our interactions he has been very attentive to his clients and ethically beyond reproach.
Traverse Foster did a wonderful job helping us to sell our house. He truly went above and beyond what anyone would expect of his or her realtor throughout the process.
It is my pleasure to recommend Traverse as a reputable agent. The only time I sold a house in the Anderson area, he was the listing agent. I got what I wanted for my house and it only took a few weeks to sell.
I was very pleased with the work Traverse did for me. I not only consider Traverse as an excellent real estate agent, but I also consider him a good friend.

Traverse is, by far, one of the finest people I have ever met. He has sold three of my former homes, and has personally walked me through the process of purchasing two homes, one of which I am still residing. His character, honesty and openness made each transition to a new home so pleasurable. His years of experience in real estate, in particular the Anderson area, and tireless dedication to his clients is unparalleled in this industry. If you are considering a move, whether it is buying or selling, Traverse Foster is the man!
It has been my pleasure to know Traverse Foster both personally and professionally for over 20 years. During that time I have referred many individuals who were relocating to the Anderson area to Traverse. His knowledge of the local real estate market and his unmatchable approach to customer satisfaction left each of them with a positive impression of the area and of Traverse. Even when someone did not initially purchase a home, they contacted Traverse when they were ready to buy. In a city with dozens of real estate companies and representatives, I consider this an excellent testimony to his work.
I have also personally seen the excellent work that Traverse does in construction, remodeling, refurbishing, etc. in this market.
Traverse is an individual with excellent skills and market knowledge, and he possesses character and integrity that is second to none.
