Enjoy Lowcountry Living at its Finest!

Enjoy Lowcountry living at its finest!

ASB 0426 lowres

Hey everyone!  I’d like to welcome you to this special place – the coastal regions of South Carolina known as the Lowcountry.

The painting of the home on this site was our former home on Lady’s Island in Beaufort which proved to be the inspiration for my books many years later.



This is a place for all who either have fallen in love with the Lowcountry of South Carolina or those who simply wish they knew more. Most of you know me as a Lowcountry author who’s written a stack of books – a series I titled Shrimp Collards and Grits.

I’m going to keep writing about it but also enjoy selling you our Southern lifestyle. Reach out to me with your real estate questions: 


It would be an honor to find you a home amongst our towering live oaks, marshlands, and rivers. I’m here to help whether your interest is in Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, or Beaufort.

Looking to buy your new home or just thinking about it?

If you have owned your home for a few years, you are sitting on a lot of equity.  That equity can fuel your move.  

I cannot wait to show you around my corner of the world. Our communities are vibrant residential and recreational preserves enriched by wilderness and abundant wildlife, unspoiled rivers, salt marshes, and salty breezes. I’ll help you discover the best places to eat, stay, play, and shop!

We believe home is more than a place.  It represents a life well lived and becomes a place where family and friends gather and memories are made that last for a lifetime. Many value privacy and choose to live in our country neighborhoods, while others are drawn to the vibrancy of our towns and communities. We are here to serve and help you find your way home.

Any idea what your current home may be worth?

If you are a homeowner, you need to know. You may be sitting on a record amount of equity thanks to today’s home price appreciation. This equity can help you make your next move.  Experts advise not to wait until spring to make your move.  While mortgage rates have been historically low they are rising and it’s predicted they will continue to rise in the coming months. Home prices will still be moving in an upward direction throughout 2022. Start today to make your life in the Lowcountry a reality.

FREE Market Analysis 

Even if you feel you are not quite ready, you should know the estimated value of your home in today’s market.  You may be very surprised.  Our FREE service provides you with your property’s current market value and suggested selling price.

What’s new in the Lowcountry?

Have you heard the news?  Beaufort Station, a more than 200,000 square foot retail plaza is scheduled to open in the City of Beaufort in the fall of 2023 with a number of retailers including Hobby Lobby, Old Navy, and Ulta Beauty. The growth story in Beaufort is just phenomenal  –  now we’ll have a top-tier tenant lineup the community will be proud of when it is completed.

That’s just one of the many new amenities coming soon to our home town.
