New Marketing Projects: “How I spent my Summer Vacation” Part I

Since it’s “back to school” time, I decided to treat this issue as my initial essay project of the new school year – “how I spent my summer vacation.”

First, much of the time was spent implementing new marketing ideas for spreading the word about real estate opportunities on Seabrook. You’ll notice new kiosk stands housing real estate guides at both the Beach Club and the Island House. The good news is that these have been flying off the shelves into the hands of potential prospects.

I also spent Wednesday mornings over the summer hosting breakfast “meet and greet” sessions in the Island House for Seabrook guests looking to buy property. The attendees ran the gamut of our normal prospect pipeline – from first-time visitors to a couple from the Southwest who have been visiting Seabrook for 6 years. All the meetings were extremely positive and usually the longtime visitors were gushing to the new guys about what a great place Seabrook is!

Stay tuned later this month for “how I spent my summer vacation” – part II! Welcome back to those who have been traveling, and here’s to a great end of the year real estate market!

Seabrook Island Named “Best Restored Beach” of 2016!

Recently the SIPOA submitted its beach project, Relocation of Cap’n Sams, to the The American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) for consideration in its annual Best Restored Beaches contest. This week it was announced that Seabrook is in good company with five other coastal communities!

Beach restoration involves placing beach quality sand in a specific area to offset or prevent erosion. According to the ASBPA, the three main reasons for beach restoration are: 1. Storm Protection; 2. Habitat Restoration; 3. Recreation.

Coastal communities from around the country entered their projects into the competition for consideration and an independent board of coastal managers and scientists selected the winners. According to the ASBPA press release, selection was based on:

  • The economic and ecological benefits the beach brings to its community;
  • The short- and long-term success of the restoration project; and
  • The challenges each community overcame during the course of the project.

Be sure to read Tideline Blog’s post on the announcement!

Thank you to the ASBPA for the recognition!
