OUR HISTORY

Our company first began making its mark in 1948 when founder Warren Norman began his real estate career. By the time his son Ralph came aboard in 1975, the Warren Norman Company had already helped change the commercial real estate landscape in the Rock Hill area forever. Ralph spearheaded all aspects of the company’s core commercial and residential real estate development for four decades. In the years after he became U.S. representative for South Carolina’s 5th Congressional District, he served as an advisor to the company’s robust Executive Committee, including three other Norman family members, as they propelled the company into the future.
