In addition to the amazing beaches, the extensive biking paths, the wonderful restaurants and the incredible homes on Hilton Head Island we also have sensational fishing opportunities. Having been in the area since 1973 I have been blessed to have spent many days fishing in these waters. While I have had many successful days fishing I would highly recommend hiring one of our areas charter boat captains for you and your family when visiting Hilton Head Island.

Recently I had the opportunity to talk to 2nd generation boat Captain Christiaan Pollitzer of Bulldog Charters. Captain Christiaan Pollitzer shared this report with me. 

January Fishing Report: Traveled offshore about 40 miles on the Bulldog on 1/17 for some bottom fishing. The ocean was

If I got my way (which is not terribly common), I would remove EVERY. SINGLE. WALL.  I would use rugs and furniture to delineate rooms and all the rooms would be one!

We love when our clients as for an "open concept" kitchen and living area.  It's such a nice way to spend time with family and friends, to be able to cook and socialize at the same time and everything just feels so much bigger.

This homeowner was looking to have more seating in the kitchen for their family so we suggested taking out the peninsula and bulky upper cabinets in the kitchen, adding a large island and combining the space with the adjacent family room and sun room.  Take a look at a few of the before pictures.

Once we established the design and ordered

Have you heard the news? SC is the #17 state to retire in!

There are several reasons why many choose to retire in the Lowcountry; here are just a few. 1) The cost of living is 7% below the US average. 2) We experience mild weather year-round so you can enjoy outdoor sports and the natural beauty during all seasons. 3) Taxes are friendly to retirement incomes.

The state population is 4.8 million and the best city is currently voted as Bluffton, SC - although the age average is just 35years.

I can´t imagine any other place to live or retire! Contact me today should you be considering relocation to South Carolina!

As you may know, some pretty exciting announcements were made last October and November regarding direct flights out of the Hilton Head Island International Airport. To top that great news, at the beginning of this month, there were talks of another air giant welcoming direct flights to our neighborhood airport. 

In October 2018, it was announced that United Airlines would begin servicing the our airport in Spring 2019. The following month, the community was informed that American Airlines will soon begin flying directly to Washington D.C. from the island terminal. 

Then, at the beginning of this month, Delta allowed customers to book flights to and from Atlanta and Hilton Head Island starting May 23. 

This is wonderful news for both

  Coming on vacation to Hilton Head? Don't expect to see many single use plastic bags here. As of November 1, 2018, the plastic bags have been banned in Beaufort County. Businesses were given 10 months by the county to be completely ready for the change. No more running into a grocery store, grabbing a couple things and coming out with a plastic bag. Now, you get a paper bag in most places. And, of course, almost everyone has a reusable bag for sale with their company name on it. I may have to jump on the bandwagon and get some made as well. :)   Now, when you hear plastic bag ban, we are talking about restaurants, food stores, Walmarts, etc...… We are still using plastic bags for our garbage bags, newspaper bags, bags for pet…

Hilton Head Island properties are being renovated at record numbers. Ask any contractor on the island and they will tell you it’s a hot market for homes needing makeovers. Make sure you make the most of your remodel by following the experts’ advice on the latest trends for 2019.

2019 Design Trend #1: Softer White Wall Paint Colors “The white that we see clients liking more is Chantilly Lace [Benjamin Moore], Avery pure white that does not have any grey in it, and therefore gives a very luminous feel to the room. We’ve started to use softer whites, like dove grey, to warm up the modern spaces. Basically, we are going away from the cold whites of the last few years.” According to Sybille Schneider, director of interior design at Leroy Street Studio

SUNRISE ON Hilton Head

We're pleased to let you know the real estate market on Hilton Head Island experienced another year of measured growth and stability through 2018. The market didn't appear to favor either the buyer or the seller as both sides were sensitive to price and value. The exception to this could be found in new home construction which continues to show solid demand. Buyers also had a clear preference for renovated homes and villas in turnkey condition.

Sales of homes on Hilton Head Island were stong in 2018 with an increase in transactions of 16.8 percent but the median sales price dipped slightly by .2 percent to finish out the year at $534,000.

Villa sales islandwide ticked up 1.1 percent from the previous year while the median sales price increased
