Kevin BasiricoKevin Basirico | Sales Associate

Born and raised in Hilton Head Island, Kevin's Lowcountry roots were planted when his grandfather moved from New York to the South Carolina coast in 1938. Upon graduating from Clemson University in 2012 with a degree in Environmental Science and Natural Resource Management, he fulfilled a lifelong goal of acquiring his OUP  and 50 GRT Master Captains License from the United States Coast Guard.

After a short stint as a charter boat captain in Hilton Head, Kevin spent the next four years as an Account Executive for national advertising firms in Bluffton, SC and Charlotte, NC - contributing to strategy, conception and execution for local and national accounts such as South Carolina Parks, Recreation and Tourism, Francis Ford Coppala Wines and Toyota.  Most recently, he served three years as general manager and head of inshore sales for Barker Boatworks, a semi-custom boat manufacturer in Sarasota, FL.

However, for Kevin, there was no match for the Lowcountry's climate, lifestyle and unparalleled beauty, so when he was offered the opportunity to join the Kevin King Associates team in the fall of 2018, he jumped at the chance to move home and join the well respected group of real estate agents at Charter One Realty. Kevin's unique advertising and sales background paired with his knowledge and deep ties to the area make him a perfect fit for any client looking to buy or sell.
