Mike Bedenbaugh

Mike is a licensed Realtor in South Carolina, specializing in older structures, both commercial and residential. He has a multifaceted understanding of older buildings, including research, regulations, rehabilitation and restoration, and generally how they can work for your lifestyle or business investment.

Mike served in the U.S. Navy and earned a degree in International Studies in the 80s. As CEO, he led a product marketing firm in the 90s.  In 1996, Mike was elected to his local city council, and in 2002, he served as Chair of the county Board of Zoning Appeals. This experience gave Mike the background to deliver an entrepreneurial spirit to preservation projects in the 2010s. After becoming President of Preservation SC in 2007, Bedenbaugh created and managed numerous programs that advanced the mission of PreserveSC while creatively addressing the challenges inherent in endangered historic properties. He was responsible for raising millions of dollars for Preservation Projects and saved dozens of historic properties through real estate successes that otherwise would have been lost. Mike was awarded the Order of the Palmetto for his work by Gov. Henry McMaster.
