Sherry Winter


I strive to deliver my clients to their desired closings by empowering them with a wealth of valuable knowledge, insight on the market and its inventory, developed skills of negotiation and execution, and a vast and tested community of resources I have come to trust. My goal is to make home ownership, either as a buyer or a seller, the most pleasant experience possible!

Patty Dooley Preisner


Anyone can find a home on-line these days – but then what? I will help you gather information, set showing appointments and determine nearby price trends to determine if the property is a good value. I will also help you with inspections, find the best lenders and structure an effective offer that will protect your best interests. Buy with confidence! I will walk you through every step of the purchase.

Phil Olweiler


Whether helping you find creative financing or simply finding a dog-friendly condo, I put my real estate and business experience to work for you. Talk to my clients and they’re likely to tell you no one knows Hilton Head Island like we do.

Tina Biggins


Being your buyer specialist provides me with opportunity to do three of my favorite things: helping people with their homes, planning and, of course, entertaining! Before real estate, I was heavily involved in the banking industry as a mortgage loan processor, underwriter, closer, post-closing auditor and a short-sale mediator, working to negotiate with banks on behalf of my clients in need of financial relief.  I most recently owned an event planning business on Hilton Head, planning and executing personal and corporate parties typically for 100 people or more.  Both experiences, along with my knowledge of the area, put me in a perfect position to help you make your dreams come true!

Suzanne Bishop

I have the pleasure of living and working in resort sales and management since 1981 and I’m delighted to share my energy, hard work, and creative services in every detail of your next real estate transaction.  Allow me to put my extensive knowledge of all aspects of the industry representing investors, buyers and sellers both in the residential and commercial market to work for you.

The tagline of our company is “We put you in a perfect place.”  That not only means we’ll help you finding the property that’s right for you but also provide you with all the information and resources you’ll needed to make a truly informed decision.

I’ll use my experience and foresight to proactively address details before they become a problem.  Our team work with the industry professionals to inspect and maintain properties, initiate communication in every detail of the transaction, from the first phone call all the way to close.  Our relationship doesn’t stop there – we will always be here for any future questions, follow-up or simply to stay in touch.  Several words you can count on from me are honesty, reliability, communication, commitment, passion and superior service.



Benjamin Preisner


A native of Hilton Head Island since 1982, I love sharing this amazing area with people from all over the world. In order for my clients to make the best decisions possible, I provide top notch information and market insight throughout every step of the process. I’m known for outstanding client service, 24/7 availability, high tech marketing and closing techniques, and a sincere personal touch. My client’s best interest is always at heart.

Whether buying or selling, I understand the process can often be challenging and complicated without the right guidance and knowledge. Ultimately, my main goal is to “Put you in a perfect place,” and I utilize every resource available to make that happen for you. My focus is to take the pressure off you by listening to you, anticipating your needs and following through. I am extremely knowledgeable about the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton communities, amenities and lifestyles, along with the inventory of real estate available.

On a personal note, I’m originally from Old Saybrook, Connecticut. I am passionate about dog safety and rescue, actively assisting various organizations in the area. In my spare time I love exploring the South, camping, biking, boating and playing tennis. I attended Hilton Head Prep and Yale University and have a background in real estate operations, marketing and information technology.
