The Ricefields is one of the most popular neighborhoods in all of the Pawleys Island, Litchfield area for families because of its proximity to the schools. 2 schools are within walking distance: Waccamaw Elementary and Waccamaw High School. The Ricefields Neighborhood has a pool and boat access to the Waccamaw River. (Of course it is tidal and only small boats can get in and out.) Caledonia and True Blue are 2 golf courses located within 1 mile of the Ricefields Plantation neighborhood and they offer Ricefields residents and their guests substantial savings on greens fees. Memberships and special events will be available throughout the year and the homeowner's association within the Ricefields have various events planned in the community such as yard sales, pine straw delivery in BULK P...

It wasn’t long ago anxious home buyers whispered nervously in another room, not about whether or not they could afford their mortgage, rather, if their future backyard was big enough for a pool. Sales were up, the market was good and all a Realtor really needed was a license and a suit. Agents were a dime a dozen and people flipping real estate were too.   A lot can go wrong between a listing and a sale Long after Ponzi, Al Capone and Nixon’s Watergate Scandal; somewhere between Martha Stewart, an economic downturn and Wall Street’s Bernie Madoff, people started to pay attention. We’re smarter, thriftier, and almost everyone has trust issues when it comes to money changing hands. So where does this leave an agent who makes an honest living selling real estate? Fortunately for us there’s...

I love blogging...it gives me time to reflect and think about work. As a mother of 5, I often find myself putting "ME" last. All you Mom's out there know what I am talking about. It seems like a never ending cycle of dishes, cooking, cleaning, homework, taxi service to all kid's activities and ALL while managing your own business. I found myself in a RUT! I wasn't making anytime for me and I was suffering for it. I was gaining back the weight I had worked so hard to lose. I wasn't sleeping well. I felt on edge all the time and one day I just stopped and asked myself........"How can I be good to anyone else when I am not good to myself?" I started back exercising and while I was riding my bike all of a sudden I found myself smiling. Yep, right by myself, just me on the bike alone. It was...

Anybody can dress up an entrance or yard by simple adding a seasonal display outside. This will make the home seem warm and inviting. Don't forget those potential home buyers are already forming opinions as they are pulling up to the house. Having an inviting display outside of the home can give the potential home buyer the "warm fuzzy" feeling right from the start. Setting the tone when showing a home starts the entire emotional attachment. So when you are staging a home, don't forget about the outside too! This is a quick and easy display that you can duplicate under $50. Enjoy~

Let's face it, most garage's end up being an endless overflow of junk accumulated through the years. From tools to furniture everything can be found there. Staging the garage is not only a great time to de-clutter and make things easier for the move, but it can also create additional revenue that you weren't expecting! The garage is one of the rooms that frequently get overlooked and yet have a big impact on the sale of the home. Cleanliness is first priority. Since the garage is typically not clean and full of junk when a potential home buyer sees a garage that is orderly, clean and clutter free it subconsciously indicates to them that you take better than average care of your home. Don't forget to paint! Remember painting is a great way to update any room and give the appearance of a ...

I sit on the Board of Directors for St. Christopher's Children, located in Pawleys Island, South Carolina. St. Christopher's Children is a non-profit organization that provides funds for the immediate personal needs of abandoned, abused and disadvantaged children in Georgetown County. We are community-based and rely exclusively on volunteers to perform our work. We seek to help children of all ethnic groups and provide funds for those personal needs that cannot be met by existing social services or government agencies. The burdens endure by abused, abandoned, underfed and unclothed children among us is difficult to comprehend. They are referred to as "shadow children", unseen but in our midst until a crisis is brought to our attention. Some are rejected by natural or adoptive parents. O...

Litchfield inn Pawleys Island Litchfield hotel is located in beautiful Pawleys Island, SC. Pawleys Island is located some miles south of the Myrtle Beach. The area is home to the most well liked beach on the east coast of the U. S. . The giant tourist months are June, July and August. During that time the grand Strand will bring over 13 million visitors to the area. Pawleys Island though will receive a lot less tourist than the busy downtown Myrtle Beach area. So the area is normally less crowded and offers the feeling of a small beach town. The actual island itself is only about 4 miles long and is one of the oldest resorts in America. What is unique about Litchfield Inn is its location. Pawleys Island has managed to maintain a low density policy when it comes to building. This has sto...

This is a very common problem and can be delaying the sale of the home on the market. Realtors can be in a very delicate situation when you KNOW your client desperately needs their home staged. You don't want to offend your client in fear of losing the listing or creating bad feelings. You need that client to believe in you! What do you do?? Bring in a home stager!! We deal with this ALL the time. We know how to handle things and to gentle push the client into staging their home. As an unbiased third party, who does not yet have a relationship with that client, they are not offended, but rather soak up the information and LOVE the advice. After all, these clients want and sometime NEED to sale their home quickly. Home staging is an art beyond decorating. Staging the home through a serie...

Place large bowls of fresh fruit in the kitchen or dining room. De-cluttering is a must! Pack up all little knick knacks (this distracts the buyer from the structure or the features of the home you are trying to showcase). Wipe your cabinets down with orange oil to make cabinets appear newer and back to their original luster. Remove everything from the outside of the refrigerator. Add green plants to any room. De-personalize...you want the potential home buyer to imagine themselves in your home. You must remove all family/individual pictures off the wall. Add a spa basket, lotions, scented soaps and scented candles to your bathrooms. Make sure all windows and mirrors are clean. Make sure the beds are made and add colored pillows with fun texture that will compliment the room. Scented c...

Just 30 minutes south of Myrtle Beach is the unique area of Pawleys Island.  Hagley Estates is a rustic neighborhood within the Pawleys Island community. Hidden away from all the hustle and bustle. The dirt roads wind in and out ....around the Ancient Live Oaks and mature trees. Hagley Estates is not for everyone. If you prefer the well manicured gated comm unties, this is not an area for you! If you enjoy no Home Owners association fees on a monthly basis and the option becoming a part of the community or not you may want to consider Hagely. If you love being surrounded by nature and a relaxed community where you can still park your boat in your yard and maybe a Recreational Vehicle as well, then you must visit! The price of the homes here range from the low $200,000 range to well ove...

Rosecrest is a great community just off of the South Causeway, one of only two roads that lead to the spectacular non commercial beach front that is Pawleys Island.  It really brings you back to another time, where neighbors know one another, a sense of community involvement exists, cookouts and days at the beach end with glorious sunsets. All of this within a walk, bike ride or golf cart ride to the beach with prices under 300k! Call me today to preview homes on the market and start the process to get down here and live your dream.

Litchfield Plantation is on one of the oldest and most historic rice plantations on the Waccamaw River. The Avenue of Live Oaks leads to the original mansion, built in the early 1740’s, and today used as a Country Inn. The Plantation is a most private location for a limited number of upscale homes, townhomes and condominiums whose owners enjoy the use of a gorgeous pool and pool house overlooking the old rice fields and marshes, a 60 slip marina accommodating up to 32 ft boats, tennis courts, and the Carriage House Club, a private dining facility. For an idea of the style of homes in Litchfield Plantation, the following  is a sample of the current homes on the market in this truly exclusive Lowcountry community.   Property 1 of 6   MLS Number: 727274 Listing Price: $889,000 Town: Pawley...
