Want to buy a lot and build your dream home in Charleston? Here’s what it will cost you.

I’ve been dreaming up my dream house for decades. Do you do that? My current daydreams swirl around a home with Contemporary Lowcountry architecture, L-shaped with a long view across something beautiful. And a pool. I must have a pool. So with these imaginings and my personal research, coupled with my experience working with developers and architects, I know what...

Dewees Island – Charleston’s most magical place you have probably never been to

Dewees Island – Charleston’s most magical place you have probably never been to

I’ve never fallen out of love with the Lowcountry, but Dewees Island always reminds me what a mad, deep, eternal love it is.  Just 20 minutes by passenger ferry from the Isle of Palms marina, it is a world apart from that to which we’ve become accustomed. On Dewees, nature is your constant companion – the flora, the fauna, the...

So how can a burned-out decrepit house be beautiful? I’ll show you.

Update on January 13, 2017 – It seems strange that I just wrote about this house a short while ago. Since then, structural engineers deemed it unsafe and endangering the homes surrounding it. So the City gave the owner permission to demolish it. Keep in mind – this almost NEVER EVER happens, particularly to such a notable historic property. I’ve...

Is the Third Time a Charm for the Sword Gate House?

The allure of the Sword Gate house is real. A massive, magnificent mystery behind a towering brick wall, seen only through hand-wrought iron gates featuring two brawny swords. Who owns it? Only a few are privy – otherwise the rest of us are left wondering who in the world is Bear Gate Realty Limited – the name listed in the...

While I specialize in Historic Charleston and luxury new developments, my knowledge extends to the Islands and other walkable areas as well.

    • ...We knew that Kristin would be good before we even met her - her blog made it clear that she truly knew the Downtown area of Charleston inside and out. What we didn't know was how effectively she would lead us through the home buying experience, or how far she'd be willing to go to make it easy on us...
    • ...We can’t express how impressed we are with Kristin’s patience, persistence and professionalism. Buying a house from long distance requires a lot of trust in your local representation...
