How It Started?

Delaney Morgan began her Real Estate career in 2017 after graduating from the University of South Carolina with a dual major in Real Estate and Marketing. She began focusing on first time home buyers, helping people find a starter home to start their family. Her priorities shifted in 2022 when her dad suffered his second stroke. Her father survived but could no longer live independently in Augusta, GA. Delaney became his primary caregiver and moved him into their home where she resides with her fiancé́, Richard.

When it became apparent that her father would not be returning to Augusta, she had to sell her childhood home. It was a tough decision and an emotionally challenging process. The home was built in the 1920’s by Delaney’s Great Grandfather and had remained in the family ever since. She didn’t realize how hard the transaction would be until she was sitting at the closing table and couldn’t stop crying. After experiencing the process of having to sell her family home and part with all of the memories, she created the Highland Company. Her childhood home was on Highland Ave in Augusta, and she wanted to carry that with her everywhere.
