Did you know that Oconee is actually the Cherokee word for that means "land beside the water"?  The Cherokee Indians originally inhabited this beautiful section of SC that is bordered on three sides by water:  Chattooga River to the west, Lake Keowee to the east, and Lake Hartwell to the south.  It has been said that Oconee County actually has more waterfront property (including lakes and rivers) than any other county in the entire state of SC, including all coastal counties!  With this abundance of land and water, it takes a real estate company with knowledge and history in helping people find the "perfect fit" waterfront property.  Call or email Keese Realty today- there's a reason we have been here since 1970!
