Life on Hilton Head Island is more 12 miles of sandy Atlantic shoreline, 24 world-class golf courses, 250+ restaurants, 350 tennis courts, kayaking the pristine waterways that surround and meander through the island, cycling our 60+ miles of trails, exploring, hiking, fabulous shopping, building sandcastles and relaxing.

Hilton Head is happening all the time—not just in the high-season summer months. Fall is a wonderful time of year. Tourism shifts into a lower gear and many second-home and absentee owners return to the island during this time. It’s a quieter time, but no less to see and do.

Add to that our top-ranked tennis facilities and programs which are the envy of the country, bike paths that crisscross over land and water, hundreds of fine and casual dining options, and prime fishing in the calm inshore waters.

hilton head islandWe all know real estate is local—and unique. No matter the city, town or island, each parcel of land, condo, villa, townhouse and home is different. Ergo, trends in San Francisco or Miami or New York City or Aspen do not translate to what is happening on Hilton Head Island with regard to real estate pricing or sales momentum. They just don’t. Though exceptional in their own right, they have a different base with differing desires. Yes, they too are high-end vacation destinations with breathtaking views and luxury amenities and, yes, they too attract a discriminating, educated buyer. However, the comparison stops there. Even closer and seemingly more similar locales such as St. Simons Island or Amelia Island (alike only in that they are islands) are also
