Back in 1978, after graduating from The University of Tennessee, I made a decision to move to Hilton Head Island and practice Real Estate. Thirty Three years later, I can reflect on that decision and realize that Real Estate was the perfect career choice as it has allowed me to enjoy a lifestyle that most people dream about. Real Estate has taken me all over the Lowcountry of South Carolina where I’ve experienced beautiful beaches, marshlands and bountiful wildlife. Just recently, I was camping with friends at a nearby Island where we enjoyed fishing, crabbing and the surrounding natural habitat.   One morning, David Stegmeir, a good friend and professional photographer from Beaufort South Carolina stopped by our Island for an early breakfast. Since it was a Blue Sky day in October, we ...

Hilton Head Realtors have been rallying for the Point of Sale tax reform. On Monday Governor Nikki Haley ceremoniously signed the new property tax break into law.  This bill will allow businesses and second home owners the opportunity to pay 25 % less in property taxes or the fair market value in taxes on the property, instead of paying taxes on the sale price of the property. With the great prices on Hilton Head Real Estate, a continuance of low interest rates and this new property tax reform, now is definitely a great time to buy.  Call me today to discuss or start your smart search today. Being a Hilton Head Realtor and a State Director for South Carolina Realtors, I am proud that these efforts have paid off for second home and rental property owners.

If you've been to Hilton Head then it's likely you've been to Forest Beach. Local's call it "Downtown Hilton Head"; probably because there are many gift shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars at Beach Market and the Coligny Plaza. There is much real estate to be had here if you are looking to relocate or invest. A few Forest Beach foreclosures at unbelievably low prices are available if you act fast. Much like the rest of Hilton Head Island, tropical landscaping and the natural beauty of the Island make it a wonderful and beautiful place to live. From what I could tell the Forest Beach foreclosures are not located in a gated community. It seems to be open to anyone wanting to live there and you can come and go as you wish. What an awesome place to enjoy the surf and 3 miles of white san...
