Spring Sales Stats from the Sweetest of Southern Cities – Charleston

Spring has sprung, it’s sunny and seventy-six, the skies are cerulean, and glee is in the air (as well as lots of pollen).

Houses in Charleston are in High Demand – A Good Home is Hard to Find

You all know I like to use numbers to tell a story…And the story is this. ¬†There are very few homes to choose from in the Charleston metro’s most popular neighborhoods – both ON the Peninsula, and in the surrounding areas. ¬†If you are interested in buying a home in one of these neighborhoods in one of the ‘hot’ price...

Charleston’s Food Insanity – Part Two

Just a little over a year ago, I wrote a post called Charleston’s Food Insanity (and Mine). I rhapsodized with taste buds in a confused frenzy about what to try first. ¬†So many new options! Too many new places! But, my fellow fine food connoisseurs, I’ll tell you – what seemed like frenetic additions to the Charleston culinary scene then,...

Best Home in Downtown Charleston Under $2,500,000 – 113 Ashley Ave in Harleston Village

As a jaded (spoiled) Downtown Charleston Realtor who has seen it all, it is rare that I walk into a home that inspires instant love and admiration. 113 Ashley Ave in Harleston Village, just had me go ‘ahhh’. ¬†Not only is it impeccably restored and set up for comfortable, everyday living, but also it¬†is the perfect home for a medical...

The Horizon Project. From Concrete to Community in the City of Charleston.

Take a look at this area and tell me what you see. Vast swaths of concrete and cars, a few buildings, a few ball fields. A pretty nice park. ¬†It’s an area that is mostly disconnected from other neighborhoods in Charleston – on the south, north and the east. ¬†It’s where we locals go to pay our parking tickets, or...

Downtown Christmas Light Delight – By Bike

Last night it was a balmy Charleston Eve, so my husband and I decided to take a little two-wheeled spin around the quiet streets of Downtown to take a look at the Christmas lights. ¬†I don’t know about ya’ll, but seeing houses lit up always makes me happy, so I thought I’d share the holiday cheer with you. ¬†ūüôā Here’s...

Master Preservationist Program – Day Twelve. What’s in a Name?

Master Preservationist Program – Day Twelve. What’s in a Name?

Apparently, everything when it comes to the value of an historic neighborhood.
