If you’re in the market for a Hilton Head Island home this summer, turns out first impressions are as important for houses as they are for people. That first look when you pull up to a property can set the tone for the remainder of the showing. A well landscaped home gives a property a sense of place and value. And if you're considering selling, good landscape design can add up to 20% of value to your home, a figure that rivals the return on a new bath or kitchen. Curb appeal is important to 71% of homebuyers when choosing their abode, according to a survey by NAR.

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) recommends that homeowners invest 10 percent of the home’s value in landscaping.…

Lights out for Turtles

Lights Out LogoThe Loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) is the state reptile of South Carolina and the most common sea turtle nester along our shores. They are easily recognizable by the large size of their head in relation to their body and their brownish or yellow skin. Adults have top shells that measure from 30-42 inches in length and usually weigh up to 400 pounds. Males are larger than females, and are not known to come ashore once they leave their beach of birth. Females usually begin to nest the first or second week in May; the nesting season usually ends by the end of August. Females usually emerge to nest at night and lay an average of 120 eggs per nest.

One of the most exciting events associated with Hilton Head Island for the past 51 years has been the RBC Heritage PGA golf tournament. This event that takes place attracts people from all different age groups providing a week long of fun in the sun that won't be forgotten! In the spirit of reminiscing on some great heritage memories I decided to ask one of my best friends from college to reflect on his first Heritage experience!



When most people think of their favorite golf tournament in April, one word comes to mind: Masters. Those same people are the ones who have never visited Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, SC the very next weekend. Have you ever driven your boat to the Masters? No? Didn’t think so. It’s hard to beat the feeling…

Some of my fondest memories as a child and an adult are of fishing with my father and family. In the past I have included a fishing report from Captain Christaan Politzer. Here is a post he recently shared on Facebook:

"A shout out to all my charter captain friends. While I have many friends who are in all types of businesses that are really struggling right now, I am thinking about my buddies and comrades today that make their living on the water. It looks like the struggle will continue for all of us into the summer months. The timing of this could not have been worse for any of us, but especially for the charter industry here on Hilton Head. We all struggle to make it through the winter and spring/Easter essentially "digs us out of the hole" as my…

Low tide on Sea Pines Beach

We're pleased to report the real estate market on Hilton Head Island got off to a fabulous start the first week of January and the sales momentum continued right through to the first week of March. In February, almost a home a day was going under contract in Sea Pines. The mood of the market was upbeat and positive, and by all accounts, poised for another successful year. By early March, the coronavirus took hold of the country and the impact to our market was felt almost immediately. Since then, real estate transactions have been slow to form but they are occurring and across all price points. No doubt, we'll need to put an asterisk next to this years numbers.

Looking around the island, there was a 12.2 percent increase in the number of homes sold…

Driving while construction is happening on our roads can be challenging. Once these improvements are finished we will be able to return to normal on new and improved surfaces. There are numerous signs posted regarding the construction. My children had the best comment I have heard yet, Dad, if you know they are working on the roads just leave a little earlier.......Out of the mouths of babes!!! In the past few weeks I have seen a serious accident that required Greenwood Drive to be closed off and while I have no idea why the accident happened it was a reminder that we all need to remain patient while driving through this amazing resort community.( I hope and pray all of the people involved are safe and sound.) Please see below regarding the progress of…

            Springtime is upon us in the Low Country bringing us warmer days, azalea bushes blooming, and the presence of Heritage plaid. This incredible climate boasts an average temperature of 70 degrees during the spring, making outdoor activities extremely popular! Such activities might consist of walks on the beach, 18 holes of golf, tennis, or my favorite…fishing! Springtime fishing is one of the most versatile fishing seasons the Low Country has to offer. The species targeted range from redfish, sea trout, sheepshead, black drum, weakfish, sea bass, flounder, cobia, kingfish, and Spanish mackerel.

Where is the best place to fish for these species?

            It would be great if all these fish would just group up in one spot, but…
