The familiar real estate adage of “location, location, location” is, even in our mobile and fast-paced world, still relevant. A great business location boosts company visibility—and sales. So, when it  became obvious that we were outgrowing our space, we were only too thrilled when the neighboring building became available. After several months of design, construction, and interior finishes the new offices and conference rooms were ready. The layout is outstanding and the harbor views are even better! We are excited about the shopping, restaurants and waterfront park just steps away at the new and fabulous Shelter Cove Towne Centre.

If one were asked to list three things that make Hilton Head Island special, the list-toppers would be (in no specific order): beautiful homes and villas, pristine beaches and amazing golf.  That is a fairly generic list when one is comparing resort destinations with a real estate purchase in mind.  It is certainly true that resort destinations with pretty homes and villas, beaches and golf courses exist up and down the coast.  What, then, is it that separates Hilton Head from the rest—what makes it so special?

The obvious answer is that our differences are what make us special.  Having been in the real estate sales business on Hilton Head for nearly 30 years, I can tell you there are MANY things that set Hilton Head apart—and above the rest.

I’ve lived on Hilton Head Island just under 30 years.  Fresh out of graduate school (Texas) and armed with an MBA, I was living the corporate dream.  Several months into it, I received a call from my uncle who kindly extended an invitation to visit the island—and maybe do a little fishing.  It was love at first sight. The beaches were so beautiful, the swaying of the live oaks and the whispers of the palms lulled me into submission.  And the fishing was great! The people were friendly, and the island and environs were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.  Hilton Head was calling and I had to answer.

Upon returning to corporate life, I tendered my resignation and was back on the island as quickly as humanly possible.  Hilton Head was

If you are looking for a beautiful home or villa within an ideal setting surrounded by nature’s beauty and bounty, you need look no further than Hilton Head Island.  Hilton Head Island homes and villas for sale are situated in a variety of settings with myriad views—ocean, marsh, deepwater creek, golf and wooded.  Most are within gated communities which offer upscale amenities and 24/7 security.

It is said that all the best journeys lead back to home.  I find that especially true with Hilton Head real estate.  Over the years, I have worked with clients who, after vacationing here year after year, decided to purchase a condo, villa or home on Hilton Head.  Some wanted to start small and upgrade later, while others knew exactly what they wanted, blazed a trail to find it, bought it, and never looked back. I am referring to clients who were still in their working prime, many of whom had small children in school in states across the country and were not yet ready to move.  So, while they were not ready to retire or make the permanent move to the Island, they wanted to secure their spot. They realized early-on that they wanted to end up on

Your first time on Hilton Head Island: it wasn’t what you expected; it was so much better!  It’s known as the Hilton Head Effect—and it is electrifying!  For so many, those weekend visits to the Island turn into weeklong vacations, then a month, then summers, then, finally, a lifetime. Your desire for a home or villa on Hilton Head becomes reality. But it doesn’t just happen.  It happens because you dream about it, you plan for it, you do your homework, you work with the right Realtor, and you are selective in your purchase decision. It happens because you make it happen, and when it all falls into place it is magical.

But what was it that really turned you on to Hilton Head?  Was it the sun-soaked beaches, the beautiful homes with their sunny
