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.
