Put Your Love into Action

How are you going to put your love in action for Hurricane Harvey victims?

We saw love in action, here last fall in the lowcountry after Hurricane Matthew.  My headline photo for this blog post is from my beloved Bluffton.  We went thru quite a lot together last October and in the following months. And this graphic on the side of an old building in our historic sea village,  still remains a symbol of us coming together and being strong for one another. Loving one another.

And I just knew I had to be strong and be involved with helping however I could when I saw Hurricane Harvey looming off the Texas shoreline.  I don’t want anyone to feel alone.  I want them to feel loved and know that we will take care of each other.

So I’ve been busy.  I volunteered to help eXp agents affected by Hurricane Harvey.  I can’t begin to describe how grateful I am, for an awesome team of colleagues and staff who are doing such an amazing job.  I am proud to be a part of such an amazing group of people.

Especially seeing some of our agents, like George Huntoon and Sondra Richard, amongst others, going out and coordinating/conducting rescues…..

     

Just wow! The whole “Cajun Navy” has been doing remarkable things, and George and Sondra are love in action!  eXp will do whatever we can with the amazing resources our staff and fellow agents have, to help them show this amazing love across Texas and Louisiana.

And then tonight,  I saw this:

I sobbed. Didn’t you?  We’ve been so divided as a country in the last year or so.  Some would argue a hundred  years or more.

But it is so true.  We need to see love.  We need to recognize love.  And that comes in all colors.  Our country is amazing.  We need to see that too.  Let’s join together to do great things to help one another.

If you care to help eXp agents; some of whom have lost a little, some who have lost everything, and all will lose a lot of business over the coming months to years due to their commission based income, please consider giving to our corporate eXp Go Fund Me Hurricane Harvey account.    Or give to the charity of your choice doing good things and showing love.

Put your love into action.  Thank you.

Wire Fraud Warning Disclosure Form

It’s important to use an agent who is staying “on top of things”  and protecting you throughout the transaction.   I pride myself in providing that service and keeping my clients updated.

One recent development in our industry is cyber hacking combined with wire fraud.  In order to protect our clients from falling victim to this malicious crime that can devastate all parties in a real estate transaction, the South Carolina Association of Realtors, along with the South Carolina Real Estate Commission have created this form: Wire Fraud Warning Disclosure

Dreaming of Daufuskie?

Doesn’t this video help you dream of Daufuskie Island and Haig Point Club? Well I can help you make that dream a reality!

There’s something about a trip to Daufuskie that takes you on a trip back in time, and to a quieter way of life. The only way to get to Daufuskie is by boat or by ferrry. Haig Point has it’s own ferry service available for residents and guests, and the rest of the island is serviced by various ferry and charter services. Very few cars are permitted on the island (outside of Haig Point) and the primary mode of transportation is by golf cart. So yes, it is a little difficult getting here but oh so worth the effort.

The 8 square miles of Daufuskie Island hold a wealth of history, pristine golf courses, sparsely occupied beaches, artistic & culinary surprises, and friendly people. There is also an Equestrian Center, a an artisan village, farm & community garden, a marina if you happen to have your own boat, and a lighthouse you can actually rent for a weekend or special event.

I am happy to arrange a Discovery Experience for you on Daufuskie Island to find out if you’d like a piece of paradise here. In the meantime, here are the current listings for Daufuskie Island. Contact me at 843.505.3132 or email me to arrange your personal tour of homes.

Taking Care of Our Precious May River and Bluffton

Taking care of beloved May River and surrounding Bluffton, in honor of Earth Day 2016.

This morning I spent a few hours giving back to something that gives me so much joy, our precious May River, and surrounding Bluffton.  A guestimate of 150 volunteers or so, went by boat, by kayak and by foot, in and around our beloved May, and hit the surrounding streets picking up trash, to keep our river and town, clean.

It’s kind of dismaying that I picked up so much trash.  Especially recyclables that can be re-utilized.   But it also felt awesome, that I am a part of a community that gets together to make a difference.

Here are a few pictures from the event, the new Oyster Factory docks, and some things I noticed while walking around Bluffton, that I never seem to pay attention to when I’m driving.

Slow down a little.  Admire our town.  Take care of her and our May River.   And please don’t litter.  It’s just plain gross. Thanks!

 

Skull Creek Sunset – Again

From the land or the water, Skull Creek on Hilton Head Island is a beautiful place.  And Skull Creek Boathouse is a pretty great place to enjoy all the local fish, oysters,crab and shrimp dishes too.   So it’s no wonder, I can’t ever get enough of this magical place.

Rite of Spring – UPickDaffodils.com

Lori Bee, Realtor, shares a springtime ritual she loves: visiting UPickDaffodils.com in Bluffton, SC.

So one of my favorite springtime rituals is to go to U Pick Daffodils Farm in Bluffton and pick daffodils and take pictures.  It’s an absolutely beautiful place and the flowers are gorgeous.  I do recommend wearing closed toe shoes of course, as it is a farm after all.

Well apparently they had a very busy weekend because I received this email this morning:

“Wow! What an amazingly busy day this has been. Hundreds of people have been out to visit us in the daffodil fields. So many in fact that we have sold out of all the blooms and most of the buds. This means we will have to be closed for the rest of the weekend and until some time next week. We’ll send a follow up email to let you know when we’ll be open again as soon as we have an idea. Thank you so much for your support and patience. See you soon!”

So I encourage you for now to go visit their website, find out their location, prices, and sign up for their email list so you’ll be the first to know, when the next round of beautiful blooms are ready!  Take lots of pics and feel free to share on our Facebook page at Lowcountry Livin’.
