Get to know Susan Jacobsen
A native Ohio Buckeye, but having lived in numerous states, I know how important it is to be able to trust someone and to depend upon someone with knowledge of the local area. Having lived in the lowcountry of South Carolina for 20 years, the ebb and flow of the tides is now deeply ingrained in my psyche. Happy to share the allure of the lowcountry, I have matched up folks with their lowcountry dreams for the last twelve years.
Having bought and sold many properties, I began my career determined to bring honesty to all of my clients and to provide information not just about real estate but about their new city, state, and community. Since our area is so diverse and has primarily been a vacation destination, there are quite a few nuances that I try to convey to folks. Many people have vacationed here but need a guiding hand when they move to their dream home.
I pride myself on discretion, confidentiality, and tenaciousness. Clients appreciate my in-depth analysis of property choices, the ability to stay focused on their goals over long periods of time, as well as my ability to anticipate needs.
Professional and community........
In addition to my own personal commitment to education and excellence, I have served as both Chair of our local association Legislative Committee and as a State Director. I currently hold a position on the State Legislative Committee as well as the Candidate Screening Committee.
I am proud to say that I also hold the Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist designation. In our area there are only a small handful of agents who have attained this level of commitment and in the country with over 1 million Realtors, there are only a few over 300 of us! The networking this provides for my customers and clients is a tremendous asset.
My newest accomplishment was to attain a personal goal of successfully becoming a real estate broker. This extensive course with rigorous testing was very exciting, and again, is a benefit to all my customers and clients.
My best to all,

Testimonials for Susan Jacobsen
James & Angie Rice, West Virginia09/02/2013
Susan is beyond a Realtor. She has become a friend and tremendous asset to us both. With her knowledge of neighborhoods, communities, investment property potential, as well as her commitment to the properties we've already bought, we couldn't do without her.
David & Ashley Romine, Bluffton, SC08/28/2013
Buying a home for the first time is scary-thinking about figuring out how to build and buy a NEW home in a NEW community can be even more scary - plus a new 3 week old baby to think about! Susan was a referral from our lender and she was kind, patient, and stayed right through all the selections, and negotiated for us with the builder. We are so excited to begin this new adventure!
Chris & Lynne Burns, Bluffton, SC06/06/2012
It was such a great experience to find Susan. New friends referred her to us and we were so pleased. The experience of buying a bank-owned property was scary but Susan navigated it easily and we closed without a hitch!
I was extremely fortunate to have Susan Jacobsen plan my discovery journey and house hunting trip on Hilton Head Island.
She had sold my sister a house recently and we thought she would be a perfect choice for an agent.
Susan listened to the kind properties I would be interested in and I put an offer on one that first day.
Her knowledge of the island and the purchase process made my closing seamless and painless. She assisted me with names and phone numbers of local vendors that were reliable, responsible and professional.
Thanks to Susan, I am now a proud home owner and she is my first and I hope lasting friend on Hilton Head Island!
