Jill is an amazing Real Estate Agent. She goes above and beyond great service for her buyers! She is exceptionally wonderful to the sellers too! I highly recommend Jill!— Laura J.
Jill is an amazing, enthusiastic optimist! She’s listens to what you want and does not give up until she finds the right home for you. Thank you for all of your patience and support during such a grueling process of selling my home too closing on my new one.— Angeline B.
Tricia and her entire team at Island House are the best in the business! I've had the distinct pleasure of working with them all and can't say enough good things about them. Not only are they incredibly knowledgeable and very good at their job, most importantly they care!— Justin S.
Our experience working with Erin was great. We moved from out of state to South Carolina. She was more than professional and punctual and was prepared for all appointments/meetings during the process. More importantly she took our family into consideration and helped us find dream home in a community that is more than we expected.— Lindsay L.
Working with Erin was a very good and smooth experience. We moved a few states away and trusted Erin to point us in the right direction of where we wanted to be. We wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. Throughout the process, we enjoyed her honesty, integrity and professionalism. She has kept in contact with us even after closing to ensure everything is fine. Thank you again Erin.— Devin L.
Lucia was amazing, not only did she sell our house in under 24 hours (over asking price), but she helped us find the perfect home in the neighborhood we’d been eyeing for quite some time. She went above and beyond to make the process easy and seamless for us, was a great advocate and followed up on everything for us to make sure we were covered in all aspects (inspection, appraisal, etc.), and was truly just an absolute joy to work with! Thank you again, Lucia!— Nikki I.
Tricia recently helped me purchase my first home in Park Circle. She was extremely knowledgeable about the areas I was looking at, and was able to provide me local contacts to help me through the mortgage and home buying process. As a first time home buyer purchasing a smaller home, I felt like Tricia gave me the exact same attention and help as she would to someone buying a multi-million dollar property. It was tricky sale made easy thanks to Tricia and her team.— Taylor R.
Morgan was an absolute dream to work with! She is knowledgeable, organized, and super helpful. She took extra time to help us find our dream home while we were moving from another state and only in town for one weekend. She went above and beyond throughout the process and helped us navigate buying our first home. She was able to help us find a home that checked all of our boxes and was extremely helpful throughout the whole process from start to finish! I highly recommend working with Morgan!— Toni C.
Morgan is amazing! A friend who had recently purchased her first home recommended her to us and we could not have been happier. Morgan was friendly, communicative, and supportive through both the sale of our previous house and purchase of a new one. She fielded any and all questions we had and is very prompt with her replies. When we had unexpected things come up during the process, she was there to help every step of the way. We're actually still texting her as we come across questions in our new home! I highly recommend Morgan and Island House Real Estate. The extra touches provided through what can be a stressful process are greatly appreciated!— Heather R.
Highly, highly recommend Island House Real Estate! My wife and I met Jill at one of her open houses and we are so happy that we did! As first-time homebuyers, and transplants to the Charleston area, we knew a little but needed help. Jill sat down with us to talk through the home-buying process and introduced us to a lender to better understand our purchasing power. Once we had a clear picture of what we could afford, the fun began. Jill encouraged us to look at different areas and different types of homes to better understand what we truly wanted. This was so helpful in understanding neighborhoods, amenities, commute times, HOAs vs no HOAs, and the ...— Tim L.
Tricia and her team deliver a great customer experience! Excellent communication, responsiveness, and knowledge of the Charleston real estate market. Tricia provided helpful advice on small improvements we could make to get the biggest return on our house sale. Her photography team did a beautiful job, and the marketing effort was solid. I highly recommend Island House Real Estate to assist with home sales or purchases.— Amy G.
We relocated from Colorado to Charleston and had only 2 days to find our new home. Tricia narrowed our tour list down for us by sending personalized videos, helping us to eliminate from the list and prioritize those we knew were best for us. She invested a lot of time to make the most of ours. The entire experience felt like a perfect episode of ‘House Hunters’! We found the one, made an offer that night and closed 20 days later! Her support made a cross-country move seamless and stress-free! Tricia actually felt like an extension of our family with boots-on-the-ground in our new city 1,800 miles away. I’d recommend her time and again! Thank y...— Kelsey W.
We had a wonderful experience with Tricia Peterson in our recent home purchase. Tricia was extremely helpful in guiding us through the process of making an offer, going under contract, negotiating with the seller and closing on our home. Tricia is incredibly professional and immediately available to answer our questions. She kept us well-informed throughout the way and was a calming force during this stressful process. Hands down the best! Cannot thank Tricia enough for her hard work and really awesome surprise on closing day.— Barbara H.
I cannot recommend Island House Real Estate strongly enough. Tricia Peterson went way above and beyond to help guide me through an extremely stressful relocation and home buying process during the COVID pandemic. Her videography skills were so appreciated as she went out of her way to take video tours of multiple properties that I was unable to tour in person due to timing constraints. She really demonstrated a level of professionalism that was above that of any other Real Estate Agents with whom I have worked previously. I have strongly recommended her to everyone I know in the area and will continue to do so.— Catie C.
