When I think of horses and equestrian facilities, I think Sea Pines, Oldfield but mainly Rose Hill. We had a wonderful opportunity as Realtors to attend an open house presenting their new clubhouse. It was not renovated but a brand new building. Gorgeous back porch and inviting entryway, spacious bar and rooms that can be separate for different meetings. The 18-hole is a public course with daily fees. No mandatory membership for Rose Hill property owners. Rose Hill has a POA of $2200 which may seem high for some BUT consider all the amenities: Tennis with clay and hard surface courts, pickle ball, Equestrian Center with 50 fenced acres including a polo field. Colleton Point Pavillon with breathtaking views of the Colleton River, fishing dock, kayak racks,

There's nothing more exciting than arriving to a potential clients newly purchased home, and finding pea green painted popcorn ceilings in the master bedroom. Now that's what we call a BEFORE PHOTO!

This was a rental property prior to the new owner, in the highly sought after rental market of Sea Pines on Hilton Head Island. This means the place rented well, almost all year, regardless of the interior finishes. So green ceilings and carpet in the bathroom it was.

We were hired to design and renovate the master bedroom and bathroom so we presented mood boards to establish the aesthetic and then our client pretty much let us run with it. We suggested adding hard wood floors to the master and doing something casual and masculine in the

When you first put your house on the market, you might be hopeful for a quick sale—especially if you've put a lot of money into improving the house over the years and if the neighborhood is one that has historically attracted a lot of buyers. While you shouldn't panic if the house doesn't sell the moment you list it, you should begin to worry if the months start flying by without any real offers. If this is the case, here are 10 reasons why your house may not be selling.

  • You overvalued your property. If your house is overpriced, it's simply not going to sell. Compare your property to similar properties that recently sold within your area to get a better idea of its true value. An experienced real estate agent can give you an accurate value of

Come celebrate Hilton Head Island's 36th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. On Sunday, March 17th, the parade will be starting at 3pm, so make sure you get there much earlier to claim your spot. The streets all along Pope Avenue and Office Park Rd get filled up quickly as over 25,000 spectators come out for this event. So, you can only imagine how much fun it is. You will see some people with tents and their own catered food and drinks. Some are very elaborate.  You can either watch the parade or be in it. Any business or non profit organization can be in the parade. You can rent a float or just walk or drive. Anyone can also sponsor the parade. They have many ways and levels in which you can participate. To volunteer, call 843-616-3604.

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
