We all know, Hilton Head Island is special, the # 1 Island in the USA and # 2 in the world according to Travel & Leisure Magazine.


The 12 mile stretch of endless beaches, wonderful preserved nature, world class golf and tennis courts, top restaurants, no billboards and no streetlights let you enjoy the stars at night.


All this and more attracted me to Hilton Head Island (HHI) when I decided to leave Germany and make the Lowcountry my new home.

As you cross over that first bridge you breathe a sign of relief as the whole world slows down. Literally, the max speed limit is only 45 miles per hour.


Living here is just wonderful and I enjoy my little piece of paradise every day.


But on February 3rd I felt there is…

The Lighthouses’ New Look One of America's’ iconic lighthouses received a makeover earlier this month, and it’s looking sharper than ever! The Harbour Town Lighthouse has become a well-known structure thanks to the RBC Heritage annual golf tournament. You can find this destination on the beautiful Hilton Head Island of South Carolina. To celebrate their 50th anniversary of the golf tournament, the staff gave the lighthouse a whole new look: Plaid! They covered the famous candy-cane striped building in a new layer of plaid to match the patterns of the golfers. They created this pattern using removable vinyl that was about half a mile long. "Why," you ask? Big things are worth celebrating! Over the past 50 years, this has grown to be a huge event with…

My wife Gail and I were introduced to David Love in 2012 by friends that had purchased a home in Palmetto Dunes. We were interested in finding a villa to purchase as a vacation home with short term rentals. We made two or three trips to Hilton Head to vacation and look at potential villas with the assistance of David. We enjoyed working with him over the months that it took to locate a villa and we did purchase in Palmetto Dunes in the spring of 2013. We kept our search to Sea Pines and Palmetto Dunes and found David's knowledge of these areas and the market to be spot on. He did not waste our time with places that were outside of our means or were in a condition that we would not have been able to move right in. One of the best things was once we…

"Welcome 2018 RBC Heritage Classic Volunteer". This title brings wonderful emotions and great memories from golf tournaments past. My earlier days of volunteering were as a young girl in the 1970s. I was a Standard Bearer and proudly carried the score sign for many notable golfers of that era. I enjoyed it so much, that I continued as a standard bearer while I was a student for four years at The University of South Carolina. I was paid $15 a day for my 'job' back then. Don't tell them, but I would have done it for free. We young volunteers would ride our bikes to the course first thing in the morning and stay all day. We would gather at the finish of 18th to gather autographs and collect golf balls given to us by the pros. Fast forward many years and…

Understandably, leaving your dog behind can feel like leaving a family member behind, not to mention boarding fees and time it takes to find the perfect pet sitter.

However, no need to worry about those things because I’m here to help you out! Check out these dog friendly places to go and things to do on Hilton Head:

Where to stay

Many places on the island do not allow dogs on the premises at all, especially resorts and small one-bedroom rentals. Of course, there are always exceptions   There are some places where your dog may not…

1031 Exchange, also known as a “like-kind exchange” is a tax strategy that allows an investor to defer paying property taxes when a property is sold  as long as the asset purchased is done so with the profit received. A smart real estate investor certainly does not want to settle for a mediocre profit or selling at a loss. He or she wants to make the maximum profit, but knows Uncle Sam is lurking on the sideline ready for his cut. This is where the 1031 exchange can come  in handy for an investor.

Realize that the taxes are still going to be due someday but until that time it can be to your advantage to use the government’s money to invest in properties. A logical reason for a 1031 Exchange is that you aren’t out spending your profit because the money…
