One of the many attributes of the marvelous South Carolina Lowcountry that visitors and new residents of the area find fascinating is the area’s history.

You can stroll down the lanes of large and small communities, drop into a fifty-year-old restaurant or spend a few hours inside a 177-year-old home. Once in this residence you will experience the culture and history of Bluffton, from inside one of the few structures left standing after the end of the Civil War.

For those who enjoy ‘feeling’ history, visiting some of the historic sites in Bluffton and on Hilton Head Island, the experience is sometimes a bit surreal, like being transported back in time 100, 200 or even 300 years.

Now let your imagination run a little wild and envision living in a

Christina Galbreath-GonzalezWe are happy to announce that Christina Galbreath-Gonzalez is the new Broker-in-Charge of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hilton Head Bluffton Realty Bluffton location. Get to know Christina with this Q&A session:

Why were you selected to lead the Bluffton team?  My role as Office Manager for the past 14 years and working side by side with Randy Smith (BIC of the Hilton Head location) really helped me learn a lot about the Broker-in-Charge role and duties.  He me involved with many transactions of all sizes and shared his knowledge with me.  Combine the hands-on training I received from Randy plus my experience with our agents and real estate, it was a natural promotion for me.  

What defines your leadership style?  I received my Bachelor’s

Haunted HousesOctober not only brings along crisp fresh air, but is also a time for spooky decorations and Halloween fun!  If your home is on the market, the question on whether or not to go all out with your Halloween decorations usually comes up.  Unlike some holidays, Halloween is usually a lot of exterior decor that can be creepy, spooky and sometimes frightening giving your home a haunted look!!  Our advice during this holiday is to keep it fun and maybe a little on the minimal side.  As potential buyers walk around your home, they may not want to walk through your "graveyard" or large tree spider web.  Keep those chilling scenes out of main walkways.  Pumpkins and Jack-O-Laterns are always fun especially as it starts to get darker earlier in the evening, just

Getting a house ready for sale is more than dusting the furniture and mopping the floors. You have to show homebuyers what the house could look like when they put their personal touches into place.

Details make a difference when staging your home in colder temperatures.

The 2019 housing market was fueled by the overall strength of the economy across most of the country.
