Sea Pines Azaleas in bloom

My husband and I had the good fortune of first meeting Nancy Love many years ago when we walked into the Sea Pines Realty office in Harbour Town. We were enamored with Sea Pines, curious about the real estate market on Hilton Head, and thinking about the future. Nancy graciously answered our questions and shared her years of island knowledge.

That first meeting was the beginning of a business relationship and personal friendship that has flourished. She continues to share her market knowledge and savvy real estate insights. And is always a friend.

Over the years, Nancy has helped my family purchase more than one "perfect" home. Today, sitting on my lanai over-looking the marsh, I know I'm lucky to have found her.

I would gladly and…

With 12 miles of sugar sand beaches interspersed with pristine salt marshes, networks of rivers and lagoons, championship golf courses, tennis courts and fine restaurants, Hilton Head has a history of turning visitors into residents. Every year nearly 2.5 million visitors vacation on the island and more than $1.75 billion dollars of real estate changes hands - pretty big numbers for a relatively small island. While the beaches may bring buyers here, renting their vacation home can help them stay. Here are 5 great reasons to put your island retreat on the vacation rental market:

1. 14 is the magic number. You can rent out your vacation property for up to two weeks (14 nights) each year without having to report that income to the IRS. The house is still…

Did you know that Savannah has the second largest Irish population in the United States? Their St. Patrick's Day parade is over 194 years old and is one of the largest and most recognized parades in the world, winding through the streets of Historic Savannah every March 17th. When I was a high schooler, we did not have a parade on Hilton Head (more on that later), so we used to skip school and go to Savannah to their parade (mind you, I only did that one year because I did not want to get in trouble so I waited until my senior year to go). 

Hilton Head now has its own St. Patrick's Day parade, thanks to Tom Reilley, The Beckers and a few other friends. In our town of about 40,000 permanent residents, we can find upwards of 25,000 spectators at our…

Lawton Stables, The Sea Pines Resort's popular equestrian center, has a new management team to operate its horseback riding tours, pony rides, boarding facilities and small animal farm. Many of these activities are so loved by our residents and guests as well as visitors to Sea Pines and Hilton Head Island.

The Sea Pines Resort owns the 21-acre complex, which is well loved by residents and visitors alike. There is a serene sense when driving along Greenwood Drive and seeing the horses to one side and a community farm on the other. Cars are not supposed to stop for bikes crossing that popular drive, but all cars and bikes stop to let the horseback riders cross that busy road. A wonderful time to stop and breathe. Top that off with the feathered…
