It is a great day to show first time home buyers the many wonderful reasons to live on Ladys Island. We will begin our day at Berry Island Cafe. We will enjoy our coffee and decide which homes to see first. I will make certain to take them to at least one of the several public boat landings. It is extremely important for new comers to understand the value of a nearby boat landing, even if they don't currently have a boat! We will also make special note of the Ladys Island Country Club which offers more than just golf or tennis. It is a terrific place to meet people! Two of the neighborhoods on today's list are Telfair and Magnolia Court. Both are great communities with much to offer home buyers in the 180-200K range. My clients are fortunate to have at least five brand new homes that me...

Hey Everyone.  I just wanted to let you all know there is an open house @ 30 Spanish Moss Dr. on Tuesday, Jan 13th from 11:00-1:30  Whether you are a realtor or a potential homebuyer, please take a look.  I hear it's a nice home at a good price.  If 30 Spanish Moss is not in your price range or exacly what you are looking for, please take a look at my Lowcountry Properties website.  While I could be biases, I think it is as good or better than most company websites in the Beaufort SC real estate market.

Royal Pines which boasts 2 golf courses, clubhouse, community pool & tennis courts first started building at the beginning of the 70’s however, didn’t really grow until the late 80’s & 90’s. Sales for Royal Pines Beaufort SC have slowed as we approach the end of the year. 3rd quarter showed 7 closed sales in the Beaufort MLS with an average sold price of $263,785. So far in the 4th quarter of 2008 we find 3 closed sales in Beaufort MLS with an average sales price of $261,333. Hopefully after the election and the holidays, we will see sales begin to pick up and then our 38 current homes on the market will be absorbed. At the rate of sales 3rd quarter, it will take 16.5 months for the current inventory to be sold. Telfair is a relatively new neighborhood on Lady’s Island in Beaufort SC w...

Beaufort, South Carolina is home to many special creatures. Our little town is blessed with a climate that attracts mother nature's most beautiful friends. When sharing Beaufort with visitors it is always amazing to see and hear the reaction upon their first encounter with the dolphins. I remember my first encounter and to this day, will stop whatever I am doing to watch them play. There is a gentleness, a calmness, an angelic comfort that is felt almost instantly when they surround the boat.     Click here to watch them play, jump, and say hello to Beaufort Visitors. It isn't by chance, or coincidence that so many legends come from these underwater guardians. Each time I am out and they choose to say hello, I am reminded how wonderfully lucky I am to live in a paradise that is always u...

Coach Bags, Manolo Blahnik shoes, Chanel Fragrance, the latest boots and the coolest jeans will NOT be found on every corner in Beaufort, SC. I know, I know, don't cry. I was once that girl. Before living in Beaufort, I lived in downtown Atlanta. Atlanta...ahhh, the nightlife, the endless shopping extravaganza, the latest gadgets and gifts, the aroma of Starbucks at every turn and did I mention the shopping???     Those were the days... I thought Now instead of Coach Bags, Ihave Seagrass Baskets. Instead of Manolo Blahnik strappy heels, I have Palmetto Flip Flops. Chanel Fragrance is replaced by the smell of Jamaica Joe sunscreen and tutti-frutty sno cones. The latest fashion is almost always comfy cotton, sun kissed skin, and a read more than once southern novel. The nightlife is a soc...
