Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, & The Surrounding SC Lowcountry

See What Our Clients Are Saying

Realizing another move was on the horizon, I quickly searched the Internet as always for Realtors in that area. I came across several big realty companies and a few smaller ones. I probably signed up to every site, but within about two hours of doing so one of the smaller businesses in Hilton Head called me.

Then I found out the company is run by a lady who married an English man – we are from England also, so this was a real green light – things felt right from the start. After each of our visits to the area, she was immediately back in contact via email, which although being a far distance away, made us feel we were not out of mind.

I have to say from start to finish Hilton Head Island Real Estate Brokers has been all of the following: efficient, prompt, communicated with us constantly, extremely patient, and on the ball with every property we wanted to view…offer on…pull ... Read More
Patty has gone way above and beyond in helping us. We have no idea what we wold have done without your personal attention and aid. You helped us buy and you helped us rent our house when our job plans changed. You hung in there and helped us sell, when the time was right.
~Dave Kirk
As I was out of state at the time, Patty was just the agent I needed! She took care of every detail; staging, listing, pest control, housekeeping, etc. along the way. She made the process easy!
~Lisa Lourd
Patty was always willing to show us a variety of kinds of property to help us narrow down what we really wanted. Over the one-and-a-half years we worked with her she has become more than our REALTOR, she has become our friend.
~Cecil Brown
Patty Preisner was diligent in working with us over a period of about a year. She followed up without being intrusive and kept us well informed. When we finally chose a home to purchase, Patty brought in Julie. I found this to be very helpful as Julie's vast experience certainly came into play and I appreciated Julie's communication style.  Patty and Julie make a good tag team. They each bring different strengths to play.  We always had someone to go to and could count on our concerns being addressed. Patty is a very good agent and has enormous patience in showing properties.  She also pays attention to what her buyers are really looking for and delivers.  Julie's skills came into play once our offer was made.  Her experience with the entire process is deep and not much surprises her.
~Tricia Higgins
Patty was great in finding us just the house we wanted.  We are extremely pleased with the whole process!
~Frank Zecola
I had a short experience with Julie and Company because our property sold so fast!!! Enjoyed having Julie as our REALTOR! She's professional, knowledgeable, and tireless in her pursuit of getting houses sold!  Julie is always accessible and responds to calls almost immediately.
~Kim Hughes
Buying real estate can be compared to purchasing a car. The process can be quite tedious and stressful. Not so with HHREB. We knew exactly what we wanted and how we wanted to proceed with a purchase. With Patty Preisner's infinite patience, the wealth of information provided quickly to us, along with Julie Timms' efficiency and expertise we were able to make the offer and close in a very short window of time. Every question or request was quickly responded to. The whole process was orderly and always professional. We were listened to and knew our business was appreciated!
(We had previously worked with an agent at another company. Because we we were quite specific in what we wanted and did not purchase in a relatively short period of time, the agent quickly lost interest in us. Then we found Patty...
~Mary and Urs Maire
Julie and her company were great. She pulled no punches about what price my condo would bring on the market. She worked with me to price it to sell quick while still getting the most value. Julie was prompt in her responsiveness and if the need ever arises to buy another vacation property in Hilton Head I will immediately contact her first...   I have worked with other REALTORS in the past and it could be weeks before you ever hear anything from them. Updates on the market and regular communication is critical in the real estate industry and Julie and her company have that down pat.
~Neil Roberts
Overall, I enjoyed the experience. I didn't feel pressured and also felt that I received good information along the way.
~Nikos Singelis
Sherry was very knowledgeable about the various areas of Hilton Head Island. She was especially helpful with local resouces which was important to us out-of-towners.  She was also ready to go above and the call of duty to help make the process smooth for us. We consider her a good friend now, and hope to remain in touch with her as we spend more time on the Island!
~Larry & Keith B.
Sherry is amazing. She walked me through the whole transaction and always made sure I was comfortable and secure throughout the whole process. She always kept me abreast of each step through the transaction eliminating undo stress whenever possible.  I will recommend her to anyone looking for a great agent.
~A. Sanchez
Just knowing that your agency had all the small details covered made the process worry free for me.
~Lisa Lourde
I think the best real estate agents are good listeners so that they fully understand what you are looking for, and then not too pushy once the sale gets close.  Jeff fit this to a tee.  I could not have been more please with Jeff's assistance in purchasing our new condo. He was there when we needed him to be and always willing to help in any way possible.
~Scott Edmonds
Jeff was responsive to our emails and phone calls, and made the long distance buying experience easier than we had expected it would be.
~Tony & Diane T.
Excellent service from Jeff Stubbs and I know what excellent service is, because I have owned my own Real Estate Company for over 25 years in Southern Calif.  He kept me completely  informed on all aspects of the purchase of our Villamare Villa.
~Dave Dessecker
From establishing our readiness to purchase, to understanding our needs and showing us the properties, to determining price and supporting the activities leading to closing, Jeff Stubbs was very professional and always available.  He was familiar with the Island and listened to our requests.  Jeff's architectural background was also very helpful.  And the whole support staff was good at providing any required information such as recommendations for Mortgages, Legal Services and HO6.
~Andrew Patrichuk
Phil is smart and really knows the real estate business and specifically Hilton Head Island. He was very helpful and went the extra mile to advise us and ensure we knew everything we needed to before we made a decision.  This is the second property we have bought with Phil as our agent. Both times, he has gone above and beyond for us! We only have great things to say about his expertise, knowledge of the Island and service.
~John & Barbara S.
Phil did an outstanding job in showing us around the Island. We started working with Phil a year and a half ago and never felt pressured. He let us take our time before making the decision to buy in Shipyard. We wouldn't hesitate to use Phil for our next purchase.
~Ed M.
My experience with Phil was great! Phil took his time with us. He showed us all properties that were available and patiently waited while we made or decision.
~David McFee
I had been considering purchasing for several years and they kept me current with emails about current listings and market conditions. I also thought that while I could get information from them, I did not get pressure to buy or buy beyond my means. Hilton Head sells itself, and I didn't want to feel the pressure to have to buy or buy at a certain time. They also worked around my vacation plans, even showing me homes on a Sunday.
Hilton Head Island Real Estate Brokers and team were honest about the market and how to price my home. They have great technical abilities and did everything they promised.
~Ellen Stern
I think the greatest strengths are in the way you quickly respond in a very professional yet friendly manner to questions, requests etc.  Your staff has given us a certain peace of mind, and, after five years of knowing you all, even long distance, we feel we have made some friends.
~Monika Kirk
Sherry was terrific at keeping us informed and calm.  It is a very trying experience buying out of state and Sherry handled every aspect right up to closing and even after with some follow up issues.  Emails that we received informing us of insurance companies, utility contacts, etc were of enormous help as well.
~David Oathout
We had a wonderful experience.  Patty went above and beyond in assisting us with every step of the process of buying our home.  We have recommended her to our family for their future consideration of purchasing a home in Sun City.
~Ann Hicks
Sherry Winter was an amazing agent. Her attention to detail was outstanding and she did an excellent job walking us through every step of the process.  I have already referred your agency and agent Sherry Winter to a friend of a friend who is looking for a home on the Island.
~Ruth Ann Hines
Julie is so knowledgeable about Hilton Head real estate and the market. Her strategies for pricing and marketing a home are second to none!
~Donna & Jim Miller
Sherry was great helping my wife and I purchase our second home. Being from out of state she worked around our schedule when we were in town. Sherry was very professional, organized and knowledgable about properties. We continue to recommend her to other people looking to purchase in the Hilton Head market.
~Joe Barger
Sherry is fantastic! She will work with you tirelessly until you are happy. Her advise is top notch and will help in any way she can to make the home buying experience and subsequent home ownership pleasant. One word of caution.... First Sherry will be your Realtor but she will become your lifelong friend.
~Jerry Wolff
This lady is the cream of the crop! Very knowledgeable in all regional areas of HHI, Bluffton and Beaufort, SC. I have purchased and sold homes with her many times. I would not even think about using another Realtor!
~Thomas Yurkin
Sherry made the buying process easy and painless. Her advice on the legal matters were invaluable. She set up a time line in which to get things done. All in all I was very happy with her service.
~John Renn
Sherry was very personable, & helpful through the whole process. She was always easy to reach wit any questions we had. I'd recommend her highly to anyone.
~Lawrence H Graff
Sherry has been exceptionally helpful and friendly while assisting in our home search. Her knowledge of the area has been a great asset to us as we attempt to purchase a home in an area we've never visited. She has also adjusted to our schedule and screened houses via face-time so we could get a better understanding of what we are looking for. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the low country of South Carolina.
~Stephen Stull
Sherry is the most efficient and trustworthy agent I have ever worked with.  Her expertise is over and above the call of duty. You can rest easy knowing you are in the most capable hands and will be well taken care of!
~Elliot King
I have purchased a number of rental units in my day and Sherry is "Over the Top".  She goes above and beyond both Professionally and personally. My experience with Sherry has been and continues to be great.
~Jim Thomas
Sherry worked tirelessly for us, by sifting through a variety of different locations until we found the right one. She then spent several intense evenings and early mornings to help us get the deal done. Even after the sale closed, when we ran into some unhappy surprises at closing (relating to the condition of the property), she helped line up contractors and tradesmen capable of fixing the problems we encountered. And always cheerfully. We'd recommend her to anyone.
~John and Mary McGowan
I can't say enough great things about Sherry. My husband and I purchased our first home about 3 years ago. Sherry was very informative. She helped educate me, a clueless first time home-buyer. She met with me several times to go over exactly what we were looking for. She gave me names of people that I would need to finish the buying process; for example my mortgage broker. She was with us every step of the way. She just is wonderful as a real estate agent and a person. If you are looking for someone that is reliable, honest, and hard working to get you your perfect home, Sherry Winter is the one!!!!!!
~Jaclyn Skillman
Sherry is the best agent around. I had to buy a home long distance and she ran her legs off for me. She was always assessible worked long hard hours. She is so knowledgable about our area and the business. She saved me lots of money and got things that I wouldn't have known or even thought about. When I needed some outside help she has a list of vendors a mile long that love her and will help out her clients!!! She is the best!!!!!!
~Charlotte Hamlet
Sherry is WONDERFUL! She worked with us to help us through the entire process of purchasing our home. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate laws and expectations of the area. She made sure we were well prepared for anything that might come our way. We have been in our home for 1 year and love it!
~Kami Branham
Patty helped us find the perfect investment beach property. She fairly evaluated the opportunity vs. comps on the market, and helped with not only getting the house, but all the activities after the purchase with regards to renovations, getting it on the rental market, ..etc. She was amazing and went the extra mile, months after we had settled on the house.
~Mike Brown
Over a three year period we had been looking for a retirement house in Hilton Head during our vacations on the island. Patty was assigned to work with us in October, 2012. She showed us over twenty properties over a two day period, and introduced to a wide range of houses in our price range in various plantations. Her explanations about the different characteristics of those plantations was very helpful in our decision to locate where we finally purchased. The house we bought came on the market the Friday we returned to Maryland. We looked at pictures of the property on the internet and asked her to arrange for us to see it the next Monday. She did so, and also recommended a contractor who provided a no obligation review of the house to discuss what could be done to accommodate changes we wished to make in it. We offered a contract that was accepted the same day. Her sense of humor and w ... Read More
Extremely knowledgable and helpful. Patty had great patience with us as we viewed a number of houses over a 2 month period. We recommended life long friends to her and she found them a home in one weekend. We have recommended her to two other family members who are planning to retire to the Island within the next year. she reguarly sends them updates on listings and they will definately be her clients when the time comes.
~Jim and Mary Kelly
A pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable, and professional, knows the area well, and takes a personal interest in her clients. She continues to send me updates on current property market to help me make to right investment.
~Patty Howard
Patty helped us by our dream home in Sun City. Being a Sun City resident herself she knew exactly which neighborhood and style of home was right for us. She was always there when we needed her and even spent her entire weekend showing us homes and giving us tours of the area. Even after the sale was completed she kept in contact and has remained a great friend to this day. She is a people person and has introduced us to many new friends here. We highly recommend her.
~Lynn Mullein
Patty has shown us good samples of the type of houses we are looking for, both during our two visits and via emails. She is very responsive to our questions and inquiries even though we now live across the country. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a house in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area.
~Gary Henke and Rhonda Cicolani
Patty was a joy to work with. She was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous and respectful, and had infinite patience as we worked together to find our perfect second home at the beach. We had tried another agent but he seemed rushed, not very interested in us and our expectations, and because we didn't buy any of the first homes he showed us, we got the impression he really didn't want to expend any more time assisting us. Patty stayed with us and kept feeding us information. She was never too busy to answer our questions or assist in any way she could. She found our perfect place but was never pushy or aggressive. The entire process was gratifying for us. We will definitely use Patty again in the future and would not hesitate at all to recommend her. She was exemplary in all her interactions with us.
~Mary Maire
Patty is an absolute delight to work with in the arduous task of choosing and buying real estate! Her wit, charm and customer-centric approach have served us well over 3 property transactions on Hilton Head Island (HHI). If you are looking for a solid and caring agent in the HHI market, you cannot go wrong with Patty by your side.
~Ken Carr
Patty is extremely knowledgeable about all areas of Hilton Head. We felt that she totally had our interests in mind and worked to get us the best price when we found the property that we knew was what we were looking for. She also was able to help us connect with local contractors that we were comfortable working with from our home out of state. We would highly recommend Patty if you are looking for a Realtor to help you find your dream property on Hilton Head or surrounding areas.
~Tammy Schneider
Patty was a very efficient, knowledgeable, trustworthy resource when my husband and I were interested in purchasing a home in a new state. We connected to her via one of her broker's listings and have used her ever since for our real estate needs. She is just a delight to work with and whatever she couldn't answer for us on the spot, she got back to us as soon as possible with a response. I would highly recommend Patty if you're looking for a home in the Hilton Head area.
~Karen Vargoshe
Right form the start Patty did a great job figuring out what we looking for in a second home(eventually primary home). She know the neighborhoods, the people and value of the areas of the island.
~Eric Schmidt
Very helpful, cooperative, and understanding of my situation with being out of state and trying to find a home. I would definitely recommend her and use her again should I decide to resume my search for a home.
~Jerry Russell
My husband and I worked with Patty in buying our new house and selling our townhouse. She was every knowledgeable and personable. She always returned my calls promptly. She knew exactly what type of home we had in mind. We certainly would recommend Patty to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home and we would certainly call on her again if we needed to find another home.
~Marsha Williams
Patty was exceptional in most every aspect. Entirely sensitive to our needs she communicated exceptionally well and was diligent and vigilant. We had occasion to work with her nearly 4 years ago now and at the time she, by her own admission, was not yet at the "Peak" of ability in negotiating a deal. A true professional recognizes and acknowledges both their strengths and weaknesses and calls on the others in their team to bring the complete package to the table. Patty did so and did so with honesty, integrity and humor. I know Patty well and she has honed her skills over these past 4 years and what may have been a slight soft spot of years gone by is now one of her strengths. If given the opportunity I will work with her again in the future.
~William Connolly
Patty is a great agent with a lot of patience Still looking to purchase a home in future. When we visit Hilton Head, Patty is well prepared showing us multiple homes, not one or two knowing we travel down from New Jersey. I highly recommend Patty to any of our family or friends looking on Hilton Head.
~Lucy Muir
Patty is an outstanding real estate agent. She knows the Hilton Head area extremely well. She's personable, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I would recommend her highly.
~Marianne Dooley
Patty knows the area well and was very helpful recommending certain sections to us. She seemed to really pick up on our needs quickly. We are currently working with her and intend to buy our next home with her.
~Sheila and Doug Newton
Patty was a great help to us. She knew the area very well and was able to point out things that we had no idea about. She was very patient also, never pushing us to buy a home that we were not sure about. I would highly recommend her.
~Robert Kirwan
Excellent Realtor. Helpful, informative and just really, really nice. Takes the time to meet with you, find out about your needs, ask you questions about what you may/may not want in a property that you wouldn't even think to inquire about. Would definitely recommend.
~Kris Gaustad
Patty's service and knowledge were outstanding. She showed me all the areas of Hilton Head, pointed out the pros & cons of each area in order for me to reach an informed decision of where would be the best fit more my lifestyle. Although I have not yet retired to come down to HHI, I WILL contact Patty to help me find my retirement home.
~Jerry Ellis
We are very pleased with our experience with Patty. Her enthusiasm, knowledge and go getter attitude made us feel confident and thankful that she was in our corner. Patty went above and beyond and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her fine services. Her actions demonstrate her love for her profession and her joy in helping others find their perfect home.
~Lillian Dickerson
Sherry went above and beyond to help us with this home purchase. We purchased our home while still living in California, and we relied heavily on Sherry to help us line up homes to visit during a whirlwind 2 day weekend visit to the area. We were able to view many homes during our brief visit, thanks to her careful planning and extensive knowledge of the area. Once we had selected a home to purchase, Sherry's knowledge and expertise made the process very easy and enjoyable. She even helped connect us to third party providers for post-purchase activities, including flooring purchases, changes to the yard, etc. Throughout the entire process, Sherry kept us to date and was quick to answer any questions we had. We are so grateful for all her help. She's made this transition so easy for us and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sherry to others buying or selling a home in the area.
~Mr. and Mrs. Stull
Julie helped us buy a vacation home / rental property. She was very knowledgeable about what was on the market, had insights into what could be coming onto the market and was able to quickly match us up with several properties that fit our criteria. Julie was able to provide us background data on each property that was helpful in determining what an appropriate value might be and how we could negotiate from the listing price down to the right offer price. After we completed the purchase of our home, Julie was very helpful in connecting us with a local rental agent/property management company, as well as several local contractors that we used for various projects at the house. ...

We initially worked with a few realtors and quickly realized that Julie was the best.

When we started looking to purchase a property in HHI, we initially worked with a few realtors and quickly realized that Julie was the best. She very quickly understood what we were looking for in a vacation home and leveraged her extensive knowledge of the island to help both narrow the location and the type of property we wanted. She respected our budget range and worked hard to find the best property for us. When we did finally pick a property, She helped move along the negotiations in a smooth efficient manner and even helped with all the prep work for the closing. Overall we really appreciate that she was patient with us and never pressured us into a decision and it has been the best as we love our condo. ... Read More
Julie was outstanding working with us----listening to our desires and then fitting them into the matrix of purchasing a lovely home on the Island. There are many areas of consideration----and not all of them come to "light" when searching for a 2nd/future retirement home. Julie illustrates great listening skills, patience and market knowledge. On her game!
Julie is a true expert in her field. Her knowledge and expertise of Hilton Head is extensive. Her willingness to work for her client is superior. We found working with Julie a pleasure and always felt that we were in good hands. She knew the area well and was able to direct us to a great condo. She was able to focus on exactly what we needed and helped us make the best choice possible. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone relocating to the area or just looking for a vacation home.
~Pat and Jim Craig
Julie is the best, was very helpful in getting us the house we were looking for, and she and her staff have also been very helpful years after the purchase in providing info on reputable contractors for repairs and upgrades to the property. Cannot recommend highly enough.
~John Clark
We started shopping on-line for homes on Hilton Head Island in 2013 as we prepared to retire to the East Coast. As luck – and good fortune – would have it, we landed on Julie’s website, which was user-friendly and informative. When we began the actual process of looking at homes in person, Julie’s thorough knowledge of the island, its neighborhoods and their unique qualities, her interest in our priorities in a home, and her accessibility were valuable assets in our search. Julie’s professionalism and low-pressure, consultative approach were an ideal fit for us as she helped guide us to the home we eventually purchased. Working with Julie and her team at HHI Real Estate Brokers was a very positive experience for us.
~Terry Orr
I can not tell you how pleased I was with Julie Toon Pawley Timms! Julie sold my house within a couple months and got over the appraised price. Julie's team is fantastic, from marketing to showing of my home. I would not hesitate to recommend Julie and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell
~Jo M. Bruno
Wonderful to work with on both purchase and sale. Knows the area like the back of her hand. Entire staff was professional, friendly and so very responsive. Would highly recommend.
~Kristine Gaustad
Julie immediately called us when we first started browsing for our Hilton Head home. She had extensive knowledge of the area, it's growth and development which was very helpful. Since many areas in Hilton Head Island do not allow For Sale signs, dealing with such an expert as Julie was very beneficial and reassuring.
~Rainey Scott
We went to meet Julie and explained to her that we were just looking with the intention of buying the following year. We were extremely pleased at how attentive and helpful she was. She took time from her busy schedule to sit with us and listen to our concerns and interests as well as explain the history to Hilton Head, SC which we were not familiar with. She assigned a wonderful associate Patty, who spent two days patiently giving us a tour of the island as well as showing us houses that were within our budget. We left the island knowing this was the place we wanted to live and returned the following year and purchased a home. We've become good friends with Julie and her wonderful staff.
Julie and her team provided outstanding service during all phases for the purchase of our home in Hilton Head Island, SC. The knowledge of the local market and surrounding areas was superior. The group also leveraged technology in ways that were amazing and helped us better utilize our time throughout the process. The group clearly presented alternatives (e.g. rental property) and the impact had on the economics. The negotiation strategy was clear and executed to perfection. The best thing about the team was how they asked the right questions to make sure that we were comfortable with the decisions.
~Lorie and Jeffrey Vanino
I had been down here looking earlier in the year before, so they had an idea of what a could afford and what I wanted. Then they sent me a listing, a foreclosure that I could afford. I looked at the pictures from the listing, and sight (in person) unseen I told the agent Patty Presiner "go ahead get it for me" which she did. The agent sent me more pictures, and told me that the house was freshly painted thru out, and brand new carpet. When I moved in there was a lovely note from Julie, and Patty. Then they gave me several suggestions to do to the house. First was put a full screen over the garage door to enjoy the view of the lagoon AND the golf course. I was very lucky to get this house with the beautiful views none of which was obstructed with anything. So where I l ... Read More
Julie and her team were very helpful in our search for a vacation home in HHI. She listened to our wishes and made suggestions that we feel found us the perfect house. During the closing, she was attentive to the details and ensured that all outstanding issues were resolved to our satisfaction. This was very important as we were not personally at the closing. Even after the purchase, she continues to assist us by suggesting highly qualified contractors and/or suppliers. We find her local knowledge unsurpassed. She is a pleasure to work with and we are happy to recommend her (and her team) as a realtor.
We bought a second home with the assistance and guidance of Julie and her staff. Julie is masterful in her expertise and knowledge of the real estate market on HHI. She is professional, honest in her opinions, most capable, and efficient. We trusted her completely. Julie made the entire process from start to close so easy for us, especially since much of the work was done long distance. We heartily recommend her and would not hesitate to call upon Julie and her staff in the future.
~Mary Maire
Julie is very knowledgeable about the area! She gave us some great insight into various communities on the island - and in Bluffton, SC, too! We really enjoyed her candid comments, her honesty, and her integrity! We enjoyed working with her to buy our last property - and plan to work with her again - for our next property purchase!
We loved Julie's professionalism and genuine personality right from the beginning. She guided us throughout the entire process and kept the lines of communication always open. Her office is also very professional and helpful. We recommend highly recommend Julie.
~Bob and Mare
I highly recommend Julia as a Real Estate Agent. She is very responsive to your needs. She is quick to return your phone call. She is well qualified and when and if the situation does not work out they way you had hoped (and sometimes it does not) she also has a plan B ready to move into action. Truly she is the "best" real estate agent.
~Marsha Williams
I have worked with Julie as both a buyer and seller. Her knowledge of the area and the market are unmatched. She is extremely responsive and I have complete confidence that she always had my best interests in mind.
~Donna and James Miller
Julie is a very experienced real estate agent/broker. She communicates very clearly. She is quick to respond and can always be relied upon to answer a text or voicemail in very short order. The reason I dropped to four stars on Negotiation and Process Expertise is simply my perception of an overload of work for a busy agent. Otherwise, Julie's expertise is certainly an advantage to any buyer.
HHI Real Estate Brokers provided exceptional service. They stayed with us for over two years early in the process without the promise of a sale. Their support after the sale was notable. Their total knowledge of the HHI real estate market, the services/contractors available for such tasks as inspections, cleaning and lawn and garden care and other services requiring certified personnel was outstanding.
~Ray Borg
I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with Julie Timms and her entire team. They were tremendous in helping us through what could have been a very challenging situation.
~Dave and Monica Kirk
~Arthur and Ellen Segal
Julie is not just good, she's outstanding! She really knows the area and is completely honest about whether or not something is a good buy or a bad buy. She works hard. She has great negotiation skills, and used them to help us set acceptable asking prices and purchase limits. We're in the middle of making offers. And we're pretty confident that we won't be overpaying, solely because she is our buyer's agent. Really, if you're looking for a buyer's agent who is going to tell you the truth, and not let you overpay, you should talk to Julie.                
Ben Preisner is the best REALTOR I've ever worked with! He helped me purchase a Short Sale in record time... just three months! Not only was he willing to show me a list of short sales and foreclosures, but his advise and knowledge of the area helped me make the best choice. Ben also got me in touch with all the other people needed to made the purchase work, and was always available all through the process for all my questions. I highly recommend him!
~J. Jones
Although the process of buying my first home seemed overwhelming at times, Ben Preisner made it very simple. He explained what needed to be done each step of the way and gave me phone calls for updates. If I had to do it again I wouldn't change a thing. Very professional and well done.
~Seth Tucker
Thank you so much for helping me find my home on Hilton Head Island! Julie were and are the best! A true professional - and your team is outstanding. I can't thank you enough.  All the best, Dr. Nancy T.  - Michigan
~Dear Julie and Team!

In an industry that is often inundated with disingenuous people, Tina is a rare and exceptional find!

“You First”! That’s Tina Biggins' tagline on her biography on the Hilton Head Real Estate Brokers website. It’s what caught my attention and led me to reach out to Tina when my husband and I were searching for a broker to help us find our second home in Hilton Head, South Carolina. I am so glad I stumbled upon her because she truly epitomizes this philosophy - from start to finish in the process, we felt that she put us first every step of the way!

In an industry that is often inundated with disingenuous people, Tina is a rare and exceptional find! Given that our permanent residence is over 1,000 miles away from HHI, it was imperative that we find a broker that we could trust implicitly with guiding us on this search from afar. We had limited time and ability to physically tour properties in a highly competitive market, so there were times where we had to trust Tina to view ... Read More
We have always dreamt of having a second home at the beach and started our search for the perfect villa last year. Searching the Hilton Head Island Real Estate Brokers Site for available properties was easy and there were so many to choose from. Contacting Tina was the best decision that we made to help narrow the playing field and to finally secure our dream villa. We spent two days touring the island with her where she showed us all of the options that met our requirements. She didn’t pressure us at all and was always available to answer questions and to offer suggestions as soon as new options became available. The day that a villa in our favorite location was first listed she provided a remote tour so we wouldn’t have to make another trip. She was a huge help in making that villa our second home and we are so happy with our decision. If you need assistance to research the ... Read More
Kelley provided excellent service and great follow up with consistent suggestions on properties to review. I Loved the virtual tours!
Kelley's most endearing trait is her patience. She took the time and effort to understand our needs and help us review options that we would never have thought of. Kelley has a great personality and is easy to work with!

I would like to thank Kelley for her level of commitment, professionalism, and attention through the search, negotiation, and eventual purchase of my new home on Hilton Head Island. Being a recent transplant to the area without having any prior knowledge of market conditions, and economic drivers in the area initially made this purchase very imposing. Kelley's knowledge of the areas real-estate market and ability to listen to not only my structural needs for a home, but also my need to ensure that my home would also be financial driven long-term investment put many of my concerns at ease and allowed me a level of trust that is rarely found during many of the financial transactions that I am involved in on a day to day basis. Ultimately Kelley's high level of knowledge, data-driven analysis, and detailed customer care allowed me to forge a trusting business relationship that allowed me to ... Read More
I contacted Kelley on a Sunday and she got right back to me that day. She cleared time for us with just a few day's notice. Kelley listened to what we were looking for and made time to get us to villas to look at. This was short notice and she was there for us.
Kelley was relentless with the seller to get this sale done. We felt everything Kelley did was in our best interest. She knew the area well and contacts to help us after the closing. We picked a villa and Kelley went to work for us to close. We got outstanding service.

We chose David as our agent because he was responsive, knowledgeable, and willing to work compatibly. He was always available and in touch with us, worked hard to get us what we needed, patient and honest through the tough process, and all in all the most dedicated agent we have ever worked with. We highly recommend him!

I have been a part of this process, of buying multiple homes, through this same realtor: he is outstanding. I was always kept in the loop of all ongoing situations and/or issues with which he handles in a steadfast and professional nature. I highly recommend this agent to anyone looking for the easiest path in buying a home. Buying with him is no longer an arduous ordeal. Thank you David for making my dreams come true!

Thank you for all your help in finding the perfect home for my parents. We truly appreciate all you did to make it quick and easy. And thank you for the bread knife and wine! We will enjoy both! Blessings, Mary and Ed Callahan

Diane will make your home buying experience an absolute pleasure. She went through what location, style and price range home we were looking for in the Bluffton/Hilton Head area and hit the mark with many options. We were able to see, choose and contract a great fit over a long weekend. Her excellent responsiveness and follow-through all throughout the process through closing and beyond really eased the experience. She also provided so many tips and recommendations for services in the area. I highly recommend contacting her if you're considering a home in the area.

I had the great pleasure of working with Diane on the purchase of our first home. It was the best choice we made. She was extremely thorough and very attentive to listening to our wants and needs. Being nervous first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and concerns along the way. Diane always addressed anything that came up immediately and always put us at ease. She treated my family and little ones as if they were her own. In fact, we are still in touch with her today (5 months) after our purchase. It was not just another transaction for her, she genuinely cares about our happiness and frequently checks in on us. I am very happy about the choice we made and am happy to call Diane a friend. I highly recommend her.

Diane helped my girlfriend and I buy our first house. She took the time to hold our hands and expertly guide us through the entire process. As a result, we were informed and sure of ourselves when we made our decision. A decision we have not regretted for a moment. I cannot recommend her strongly enough.

Diane is a fantastic real estate agent and an even better person. She stuck with us for almost a year while we relocated and started our home search. Not only did we find a great home at a great price, we also made a great friend. I can not speak highly enough about Diane. I had bought and sold two houses prior to meeting Diane, and now I can't imagine buying or selling a home with anyone else.

Julie Timms - When you want the very best
Julie Timms is the person you hope all realtors would be. She is knowledgeable, hard-working and results-oriented. She won't promise what she can't deliver, but she will absolutely deliver what she promises. Her communications were timely and accurate. I felt like I always knew what was going on. She was very good at telling me what I needed to know throughout the process. Her follow-through is super. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to work with the best person in her market. I would/will work with her again. She is the consummate professional!
