Hayes Holliday

Managing Partner

Hayes focuses his practice on real estate closings, from purchases to refinances and equity lines. He believes that every client deserves a great closing experience and works hard to give his clients the best service possible.

After graduating from Clemson with a business degree, and then earning his law degree from the University of South Carolina, Hayes began his legal career clerking for Circuit Court Judge, Edward Miller. Hayes accepted a position as an Assistant Solicitor (District Attorney) in South Carolina’s 7th Judicial Circuit, where he prosecuted a wide range of cases, from minor property offenses to serious felonies—including over 25 cases tried to a jury verdict. After three years of service, Hayes returned to Greenville and began his real estate practice.

Hayes and his wife, Katelyn, live in Greenville with their three children, Little Hayes, Whit, and Nora Kate. They are members at the downtown campus of Grace Church and volunteer as community group leaders. Hayes is an avid Clemson fan, and on any given fall Saturday, you can find him cheering on his beloved Tigers in Death Valley (the REAL one).
