His lifelong affinity for the Lowcountry began as a child when he spent summers along the South Carolina coast. After graduating from The University of Georgia, Jimmy moved to his summertime stomping ground of Charleston, launching a restaurant in the historic district then transitioning into the real estate industry. He quickly became a leader in the Lowcountry real estate market, and in 2006, Jimmy Dye and business partner Robertson Allen joined forces to launch The Cassina Group.
Since the company's inception, it has evolved into Charleston's innovation-driven real estate firm with a focus on accessible luxury. The firm ranks in the top 1% of all real estate offices in the Charleston area and is the leading boutique firm for luxury sales. Jimmy now serves as both founding partner and broker-in-charge of The Cassina Group. In his twenty-year plus real estate career, he has built a portfolio of notable sales in downtown Charleston, Mt. Pleasant's Old Village, Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms and more areas of the Lowcountry. He specializes in Lowcountry waterfront properties and is also very experienced in land transactions and marketing local, regional and national residential developments. Jimmy understands the delicate nuances of selling luxury properties and is well-equipped to handle both buyers and sellers looking to purchase or sell in Charleston.
An avid outdoorsmen, Jimmy resides on Sullivan's Island with his dog Molly, a French Brittany (l'épagneul Breton). He is an expert fisherman and enjoys participating in tournament sport fishing and inshore fishing, as well as other watersports including paddle boarding and surfing. He is also skilled in yacht racing and has participated numerous times in the 777-mile Charleston to Bermuda race.
He has served on committees for Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS, the Charleston Chamber of Commerce and is a 2020 RPAC Major Investor. He is also currently a member of the Carolina Yacht Club.

PRAISE FOR JIMMY
"We first met Jimmy Dye in 2011 when we were shopping for our first house in Charleston. He helped us so much, made the experience delightful and was with us every step, until we found what we were looking for. Since then he has helped us through 2 other transactions; selling the home he helped us find and buying an incredible lot to build our new house." - Fred & Kathleen Prudhomme
"Everyone at The Cassina Group is so helpful and friendly! My agent was Jimmy Dye and his extensive knowledge of both real estate and the local Charleston community proved invaluable in my experience working with his company."--Sidney Wagner
“The Cassina Group did an amazing job selling my house...Jimmy Dye was a fabulous agent and went above and beyond for me. I felt that the whole experience went extremely smoothly- thanks to Jimmy Dye!” – Anonymous
“Jimmy Dye is a rock star! Nobody has experience, connections and panache like the Cassina Group. I would not hesitate to use them again to buy or sell a property.” – Anonymous
"The house that I purchased was a new listing when Jimmy notified me. It was in an area of high demand and was a quick sale. Once the contract was accepted the staff provided excellent follow through service all the way to the closing. It was an extremely simple and efficient process especially since I do not live in Charleston. I would highly recommend Jimmy and the Cassina Group.” Felix Mirando
“Molly Conn & Jimmy Dye are both great! From 2500 miles away we started working with them to find property that fit our criteria...They respected our time and opinions and didn't waste time sticking with a property just because they liked it. Once we landed on the right house we found out how connected they are. They helped us put together everything. If we move again we will find Molly & Jimmy.”- Anonymous
"Bought and sold several houses with Jimmy Dye and the team at Cassina. They are fantastic - thorough, knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommended!" Anne Navarro
""Jimmy Dye and The Cassina Group represent the gold standard in real estate representation. I met Jimmy Dye for the first time only a few months ago, at the recommendation of a mutual friend. Jimmy and his office staff helped us navigate a challenging, competitive real estate market. We ultimately purchased a home "sight unseen," based upon Jimmy's guidance and advice (we were out of state). We are lucky to have worked with Jimmy in this transaction and will not hesitate to contact him 'the next time.' Your time, energy and money are all well spent with Jimmy and The Cassina Group." --Brad Taylors
"Once again, Jimmy Dye and his team helped me successfully purchase a home in Charleston....which in the current market isn't necessarily an easy thing to do! There's a reason that the Post and Courier newspaper contacts the Cassina Group looking for expert commentary when they are writing about real estate - simply put, the professionals at the Cassina Group far and away know this market, and how to navigate it, better than anyone." --Chris Allen
"Jimmy, thank you for going above and beyond to sell my home. Your steady demeanor, work ethic, and professionalism exceeded my expectations." --Ellen Toler
"My wife and I were referred to Jimmy Dye about six months ago. Thankfully so, as he helped us navigate the real estate decisions we faced as we planned our relocation to Charleston. He found us a great home (historic cottage) with approved plans, to turn into our dream home. We couldn't be happier." --Evan Berney
"Jimmy Dye found our family the perfect house that we were uncertain we could find in this market. Wouldn't have been possible without his help, expertise, and connections. Thanks again, Jimmy!" --Gates Blair
"We inherited a home in the Charleston area and wanted to sell it. Not being from the area we didn’t really know where to begin. Jimmy and his staff came highly recommended to us and they did not disappoint! From start to finish they helped us every step of the way. They went above and beyond to make the process smooth and easy. Every suggestion they made was the right one!" --Nina Kelly
