About Goldeneye Realty Group

From College Roommates to Business Partners

Garrett and Michael attended Rawlinson Road Middle School and Northwestern High School together. However, during their days as undergraduates at the University of South Carolina, they really got to know each other. From roommates who were not afraid to speak their minds to friends who have been through thick and thin, this is a friendship that has survived many life changes and events.

Their nightly conversations at the dinner table during their college years left them with the yearning to forge their own path as entrepreneurs while also serving the community. After many discussions, they decided real estate would best allow them to achieve both goals. They spent the next five years planning and creating a vision for their real estate business.

Finally, in the fall of 2020, their dream came to life in what is now Goldeneye Realty, LLC.

Mark Hamrick


My lifelong experience on construction sites and my understanding of the business of selling homes, land and businesses gives me a perspective that helps me negotiate a purchase contract. My duty and loyalty lies with my clients.

Don Barnes

I have been very fortunate to visit many places around the world, but there is only one city and one state that I can truly call my home. I chose to get my real estate license for several reasons, but namely because it fits my nature so well. I’ve always loved to be a part of the decision-making process of things. I listen more than I talk, and it makes me happy to help assist others in making important decisions in their own lives. There is not a more important decision than helping see someone through the most expensive purchase/sale of their lives! If you’re looking to buy or sell your next home, then please give the Goldeneye team a call… I promise to give you the attention, relief, and personal care like you have never gotten before.
