It’s our mission to keep you - our property owners AND our tenants - happy. In fact, it’s a core value of our business and guides everything from how we structure pricing to how we urgently address maintenance calls. We’re grateful for the trust our clients have in us to care for their homes, and we take that responsibility seriously. And we’re nice. It goes a long way.
Of course we tick all the boxes: we’re licensed and insured. We’re veteran owned and operated. We have outstanding reviews and references and work hard for them (seriously, Google us!). We have a network of licensed and insured service providers with a track record of quality work and craftsmanship.
But the main refrains you’ll hear from our clients and tenants? We answer the phone. We respond quickly. We do what we say we’re going to do. We care.

Director of Happiness
Ron Krauskopf is a people person. He’s the one at Thanksgiving dinner helping the family get along; the one who picks your car up from the airport so you don’t have to pay parking for a week; the one who calls tech support for you because...well, it’s maddening for most humans. With a degree in Business Administration, Ron has been in a business development role, launching and growing small businesses for over two decades.
Ron’s years working in banking and stocks piqued his interest in investments, and his years working in construction led him to real estate and property management. The combination of these interests: real estate, investments, and property management, have a strong fit in Charleston, and Ron saw a need for a trustworthy, proactive, hands-on property management company.
Ron launched his property management business in 2016 as Momentum Rents, and it’s grown steadily - largely by word of mouth - ever since. Ron is a U.S. Navy Veteran who has lived as near as Winter Park, Florida and as far as Okinawa, Japan. He lives downtown with his much better half, Heather, two clever and incredibly fun daughters, Elliot and Nora, and 3 adopted cats: Luke, Rocky, and Ketzelah.
Chief Chaos Coordinator
Stephanie joined the Happy Homes Team in May of 2021 and quickly became our “chief chaos coordinator,” as she is undoubtedly the quarterback of our entire operation. She manages the entire office, answers all incoming calls, and coordinates the schedule of all properties that are in transition…not to mention overseeing all administrative work. She was built for this role and is excited to be a key part of our fast-growing company.
Stephanie has a long history and background in operations management in real estate, property management, new home construction and interior design firms. Stephanie’s strong organizational & communication skills along with her ability to work under pressure within an ever changing environment, all while maintaining professionalism has become a monster asset to the Happy Homes Team and she’s a lot of fun to work with.
When she's not ensuring the happiness of all of our residents & owners, Stephanie enjoys her love of thrift shopping, going to the beach, spending time with her family and her new Shiba Inu puppy, Mina.
Shelby Cason, a Charleston native, joined the Happy Homes team in January 2023 as Lead Property Manager. Her career in property management began in early 2019 and she has vast experience with long term, residential rentals. She has managed rentals all over the tri-county area and has extensive knowledge of the Charleston rental market, with its ebbs and flows. She has a knack for analyzing the market and prides herself in her ability to determine the optimal rental rate for a client’s home in a given market. Over the years, her passion for the business has grown and she has worked with an array of clients, from investors to those in the military. Her absolute favorite part of property management is interacting with clients, and she strives to form long standing relationships. This makes the job exciting. In addition to being the voice for tenants and clients daily, she plays a crucial role in the client onboarding process. She meets new clients in person as she is an advocate for a personalized management experience. You can count on Shelby to walk through the property before listing it on the market, to capture details and unique features of the home. She believes it’s pertinent to get her eyes on the property first and it's a good time to chat and get to know the property owner! Shelby works directly with preferred vendors to coordinate all maintenance to ensure the property is move-in ready for tenants. She also conducts showings for prospective tenants which she has always loved and deemed a fun part of the job.
Shelby was born and raised in Mount Pleasant, SC. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications with a Marketing minor from the College of Charleston in May of 2018. With years of experience in customer service, she has a passion for connecting with people, is an avid listener, and considers herself empathetic which she believes are all key in her success. Aside from property management, she enjoys traveling, petting every dog in sight (not an exaggeration) and strolling through art museums and local flea markets.
Manager of Miscellaneous Stuff
Samantha is the creative entity and spiritual epicenter of our business. Her love of life and natural instinct to serve is a driving force in her life and embodies everything we are at Happy Homes. Samantha manages everything from our social media accounts to processing maintenance requests, and so much more.
She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in International Studies and French from Berry College in May 2019. Throughout her four years of college, she worked in customer service through the Berry College Alumni Center. Samantha has been managing the social media pages for Happy Homes since June of 2019 and added maintenance requests to her everyday duties in July 2019. Samantha lives on James Island and also works at Baguette Magic. Samantha is Ron's niece and amazing role model for his daughters who love her dearly.
