Wes Whittle
Wes WhittleOwner
A native of Greenville, South Carolina, Wes Whittle moved to the Charleston area in 2000 and shortly after, founded Eastech with his wife Amy. Wes’s background in construction dates back to 1998, when he assumed the role of an electrical apprentice. Wes quickly moved up the industry ladder, and by age 20, he was the project manager for a national builder in both the Greenville and Charleston markets. Before starting Eastech, Wes also partnered in a rapidly-growing franchise that supplied warranty management services to local builders in the Charleston, Charlotte and Raleigh markets.

Wes and his family, which includes his wife Amy, his two boys Evan and Chase, and their dog Hurricane, currently reside in Mount Pleasant. They are very active in the local schools and recreation departments, and Wes and Amy spend much of their free time at the boys’ baseball practices and games.

Besides being a licensed builder and home inspector, he is also a self-proclaimed “action junky.” Wes enjoys hunting, fishing, and nearly all sports, including drag racing where he holds a competitive license. He is also a certified law enforcement officer, working approximately 400 hours per year for local law enforcement.

Exposed to the industry at a young age, Paul Spencer began working on the jobsites of his parents’ home building company at just 14 years old. Paul quickly developed a passion for property development, which led him to his next job building houses in Atlanta in the early 1990s. In 2000, Paul moved to Mount Pleasant, where he continued building homes before following in his parents’ footsteps and opening his own custom home building company in 2005. With decades of experience in the industry, Paul now serves as co-owner of Eastech Property Development.

Paul enjoys spending his free time with his family. His wife Nicole is an instructor at East Shore Athletic Club in Mount Pleasant. He and Nicole have four kids together, who all attend school in Park West.

Kathleen Barry
Kathleen BarryDesigner
Kathleen Barry, Designer on the Eastch Property Development team, came to the lowcountry after graduating in 2013 from Virginia Tech’s School of Architecture + Design.

Known to frequent local thrift stores, consignment shops, and flea markets, Kathleen enjoys seeking out pieces that she can refinish and make new again. This hobby is reflected in her own professional design work, as her favorite style decisions are often those that juxtapose old with new, or ornate and traditional with streamlined and modern styles.

Outside of her luxury home design work at Eastech, Kathleen is in her happy place while exercising – particularly when running & lifting weights!
