From all of us here at Seabrook Island Real Estate – to our Veterans, we cannot thank you enough for you service, sacrifice and dedication to our country. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.

Construction Update – Atrium Villas

Wow! Congratulations to the Atrium Villas for taking on the total redesign of their strategically located villa community. From everything I hear they are doing it right! Those in charge say they are creating an exterior look that is timeless in appearance and a structure that is all but maintenance-free and designed to last for decades to come.

DCIM100MEDIAWhen completed, the water-tight building envelope will be covered with an all new stucco exterior and brand new decks and walkways. In an effort to tie in the design with the nearby Island House, the new and improved Atrium will have railings similar to those used on the Club facility.

The renovation is bringing new life to the Atrium community and, given the highly prized Ocean and Golf view location, along with the quickly improving real estate market; it should add tremendous value going forward. I’m sure we all can’t wait to see the final product.

Congratulations Seabrook Island Racquet Club!

World Class Women’s Professional Tennis will once again be held right here in Charleston. This weekend marks the qualifying rounds and the first two days of the Volvo Car Open (formerly the Family Circle Cup) on Daniel Island. The women’s premiere WTA professional event runs from April 2 – April 10 and has competitive tennis matches featuring female athletes from all around the world. We are lucky to have high-caliber play just down the round from Seabrook!

Last month the Volvo Car Open and United States Tennis Association (USTA) South Carolina named the Seabrook Island Racquet Club the 2016 Best Tennis Club in South Carolina! Nearly 2,000 members, fans and players voted. The award aims to recognize the best tennis club in the entire state. Congratulations to Mike Kiser and our entire team on the recognition!

This month in real estate…

Last month, Marketing Director, Kristina Skalak and Broker In Charge, Joe Salvo, traveled to Washington DC to promote Seabrook Island at the Ideal Living Resort and Retirement Real Estate Expo. Some 900 registrants from the metro area signed up to attend and about 50 other communities from the South East were represented.

It was a great opportunity to talk “one on one” with folks who are getting ready to retire to our part of the country. One thing quickly became clear, but not a surprise, to us as attendees visited our beautiful Seabrook Island booth. The big draw is our unbeatable combination of our Ocean Beaches, Privacy and proximity to Charleston.

They spent hours in very detailed discussions with attendees and came back with hundreds leads from potential Seabrookers with whom we will follow up. There is nothing better than face to face contact with prospects and we will be doing more of these shows in the coming year, while adding the new Seabrook Island branding messages at the same time.

In the meantime, the number of sales on Seabrook Island will grow for the fifth straight year in 2013. Right now Joe projects it to be up about 15-20% from 2012, with some 140+ closed sales versus last year’s 119. This is great progress from the low of 79 at the depth of the national recession in 2009 as we move toward getting back to annual sales of 200 plus.

That’s all for now!
