There is a question that I was asked when I first moved to Hilton Head Island 44 years ago, and it’s a question I’ve fielded over and over again since: what makes our Island so special? My answer is always the same… the people.
Our extraordinary community comes together at the appropriate time, we are here for each other. As I think about the human spirit and connection, the empathy we have for each other, what’s happening now with the coronavirus will test us. But, I am confident in our residents, property owners and frequent guests, that we will come together as we always have to see each other through the worst of it. As we weather this pandemic together, I urge you to follow government and health official warnings and keep yourself healthy and safe, and then once this passes, I urge you to look to your neighbors to see the amazing things a community can do when it it tested. South Carolina is the sixth fastest-growing state in the U.S., with much of that growth centered around our beautiful coastal community. Study after study has shown that the population of the United States is moving and making its way to the southeast. Drawn by the warmer climate, quality of life, affordability, ever-improving infrastructure, and friendlier tax structure, they are relocating here every day.
It’s our southern charm and hospitality, our central location to other historic cities and towns, mild winters, our reputation as foodies along with our neighboring towns and cities. The weather; the cost of living, the amenities, with our award-winning renowned beach, a vibrant arts community, emphasis on our environmental footprint and low country history, and our focus and specialization in offering family enjoyment and helping our potential buyers create lifetime memories.
During this uncertain time, these same people, our new neighbors to the Island, incidentally, will have just realized how much of their profession can be done remotely. So, if they can perform their job anywhere, why wouldn’t they choose Hilton Head Island? We will weather the storm, because after all, we are Hilton Head Islanders, and we will recover on the other side with a brighter future. We continue to serve owners and prospective buyers, just in a different method of communication. Call or email us today.
