If this were your house being built (or your listing) and you came home to see the workers trying to keep warm what would you say?   This is a sure sign that it has been a chilly winter for us here in South Carolina. Luckily this doesn't happen very often.  Stay warm everyone! Regards,Joanne

It's that time of year again - time for the 13th Annual Hagley Estates Community Garage Sale! Every year, this event attracts tons of people to our wonderful community. Located just 30 minutes south of Myrtle Beach is the unique and charming area of Pawleys Island. Hagley Estates is a rustic neighborhood within the Pawleys Island community, hidden away from all of the hustle and bustle and nestled along the shores of the Waccamaw River / Intracoastal Waterway. In some areas the dirt roads wind in and out around the Ancient Live Oaks and mature landscaping.  If you love being surrounded by nature and a relaxed community where you can still park your boat in your yard or a recreational vehicle, then you must visit!  Hagley is only minutes away from the local beaches and the many spectacul...

When you've been selling homes for awhile in the same area, you can recognize a great deal. This client needed her home to close before the end of the year. At the time, that was less than a month away. Our team went to work and got it listed by the end of the day w/multiple offers coming in within 24 hours. Our client allowed us to price it so that it would sell quickly, but she would still get top dollar. We are happy for her that it closed yesterday! That makes for a very Happy New Year for everyone involved!

Looking at homes and nothing has everything on your "wish list?" As Realtors® we always advise our clients to be careful holding out for the "perfect" home.  You can get close to "perfect" however there is always something that is not exactly how you would have created it. You adapt and find "the best fit."  And then work on making it your own. If time is on your side and you are not looking for a move-in ready home, perhaps you are a perfect candidate to buy a lot and design your own home. Will there be challenges along the way? Of course there will...but it will be a home that came from your head...and your heart.  And if you love being surrounded by nature in a relaxed community that allows you the freedom to build your dream home, then Hagley Estates may be the "perfect" neighborhoo...

As we get closer to one of my favorite holidays, there are all kinds of tips and tricks and hints out there to help guide us through the day. There are phone apps for recipes, Pinterest for menu/decorating ideas, Google Home / Amazon Alexa/Echo to not only help with recipe research, but to actually manage the timers for us during the cooking process. If only Alexa could do the dishes!I found this helpful chart that I keep on my refrigerator so I can properly plan days before the event. It won't do your shopping for you, but I hope it can help you as it has always helped me!Happy Pre-Thanksgiving Planning - yes, you should begin soon!

Time for a non-real estate plug...we all enjoy a good treat once in a while, and in the spirit of the upcoming night of trick or treating, we wanted to shine a spotlight on our newest neighbor. Gilberts Ice Cream shop opened over the summer here in Pawleys Island and, being a lactose-lover, it is undeniably some of the best ice cream we have ever had! Hand crafted, creative flavors (Cotton Candy, South Bourbon Butter Pecan) and some traditional favorites (Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough), Gilberts is sure to please. Waffle cones, ice cream floats, banana splits, sundaes...and with the weather still in the 70's, it's ALWAYS an ice cream day in Pawleys Island. For a limited time, for those who are in our area, we are giving away a FREE ice cream cone...simply stop by The ...

Do you need a home inspection on new construction?The short answer is YES. With any new purchase, a buyer should do their due diligence. The arguments you get from the buyer:“It feels like it’s a waste of money.”  “It’s a brand new home…what could be wrong?” “It comes with a year warranty, so I have a year to have them fix things that are wrong.”“It was built to code, that should be enough.” I’ll tell you a little story. Not long ago, I had a client who bought a new home from a reputable builder. As we all know, all builders have sub contractors, sometimes never the same team on different jobs. Their work is only as good as the people they hire.  This particular buyer declined having the home inspected. After they moved in, they discovered a gas leak. It disrupted their entire lives, no...

I have clients every week, buyers AND sellers, who ask me who they can call to remodel and update their home. I find it challenging to recommend contractors these days because, while they may have done a good job for me, I would hate for one of my valuable clients to hire them, and not be happy with their work. Therefore, I always give them at least 3 names and then this "Guide to Hiring a Contractor."  I did my own due diligence when I upgraded my home and I would always recommend my clients do theirs. My job as a REALTOR is to advise my clients, and that's how I handle referring vendors as well. Although, if someone does ask me for my favorite "go to" person....I cannot help but tell them!  If you're reading this in the Pawleys Island, SC area....contact me directly for some referrals...
