charleston south carolina: Census 2010 Results - 03/24/11 03:06 AM
The 2010 Census results are in and thanks to my local newspaper, The Post and Courier I can report that my metro Charleston city, Mount Pleasant is now the 4th largest city in the state of South Carolina and grew by 43%.  That's really not a big surprise as we have seen our schools bulge at the seams and neighborhoods spring up.  I've been here since 1996 and the growth seems amazing to me.  I can only imagine what the native Charlestonians think.
Charleston County grew by 13% and was among 10 counties that grew less than the state as a whole.  … (0 comments)

charleston south carolina: Thank You Southwest Airlines - 03/02/11 08:59 AM
March 13, 2011...a day that I have marked on my calendar in red.  Southwest Airlines will start air travel service to Charleston, South Carolinathat day.  Low cost or discount airlines have been here before...Air Tran even but none stayed.  Flying in and out of the Lowcountry has been expensive.  Our economy depends on our much loved tourists and affordable transportation is the key.
So thank you Southwest for coming to my beaches and enjoying my restaurants.  I appreciate your presence and will promise to fly with you whenever I can. 

charleston south carolina: Twofer - 02/11/11 07:45 AM
What's a Twofer you ask...when you list a property/lot for sale but also list it as a lot/build combination.  In this case a custom builder has put together a house plan including allowances and priced it to be built on this particular lot.  Some buyers prefer to have the "leg" work taken out of the building process and listing this way accomplishes that.

Why did I do this particular lot this way?  Because it's special. This one third of an acre piece of property is in the premier gated community of Dunes West in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, a suburb … (0 comments)

charleston south carolina: Winter in Charleston, South Carolina - 11/04/10 02:38 AM
Yes, I live about 12 minutes from the beach.  Yes, summer brings months of consecutive bad hair days.  Yes, you can usually play golf here on Christmas.  Yes, our homes do have heat.  BUT, though our winters are short and it doesn't stay cold for very long we have to be ready for winter. 
One day a few years ago as I left for the office I noticed water rolling down my street.  When I came home many hours later I saw the same stream of water and followed it to it's origin, a house 5 doors up from mine.  I … (2 comments)

charleston south carolina: Raise Fraud Awareness - 10/20/10 06:33 AM
As we get deeper and deeper into the mortgage crisis the opportunity is there for scam artists and con "men" to come out.  Lawyers who were disbarred or have expired licenses calling people they find delinquent in the tax records, unsolicited phone calls or any offer that may sound too good to be true is probably just that.  Many states and cities including mine, Charleston, South Carolina offer home ownership counseling.  Those of us on the front lines need to make our clients and contacts aware and spread the word.  People needing help are desperate and will sometimes take any lifeline thrown … (2 comments)

charleston south carolina: Fall and Real Estate - 10/05/10 08:52 AM
Fall is here and the cool breeze is finally at the beach in Charleston, South Carolina.  It's pumpkin time.  Need one? Go to Boone Hall off Highway 41 in Mount Pleasant and enjoy the pumpkin patch and the Halloween events.  Fun for all ages.
A cool amd welcome breeze has hit the housing market too.  Standard and Poor's Case-Shiller index reported during the first week of September that home prices were up in 15 of the top metropolitan areas.  There was a nationwide gain of 4.2 percent over the same time last year.  Interest rates are at all time low and … (2 comments)

charleston south carolina: Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina - 09/08/10 07:18 AM
I love where I live.  Yes, I live in metro Charleston, South Carolina just 12 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean but I love it here for other reasons too.  We have a sense of humor, a sense of joy and a sense of who we are and where we came from.  The Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park under the Arthur Ravenel bridge is a tribute to our service people and the lives lost but also to our future.  To the children that play there now and will in years to come.  To the people that fish from the pier and to all the … (0 comments)

charleston south carolina: Home Sweet Home-Dunes West, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina - 06/19/10 08:28 AM

I live in the gated golf course community of Dunes West in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, a suburb of Charleston.  Our neighborhood is the largest gated community in the area.  Why do I live in a gated community?  Simple, it's where the house I liked is.
When we moved here in 1996 my little area of courtyard homes was just getting started and I wanted to buy the model home.  The builder had no real desire to sell so my husband and the agent wrote 5 contracts before they finally secured my home for me....yes for me.  I did not want … (0 comments)
