Client Testimonials

Dear Glenn and Jane,

The stars must have aligned! Normally I take vacation in August, this year had to change to July. By chance stopped and talked to you folks at the festival on Tuesday, hit it off right away. Condo for sale on the floor and the view I wanted. By Friday at 3:00 you have it set up for me to view. Friday at 4:00 we are writing an offer.

I remember saying "It's Friday the 13th" I'm not sure if I want to do it today. Glenn, you replied "Friday the 13th will become your lucky day." Boy were you right! Not only did I get the condo, I met two incredible people that went above and beyond to put me first. I am truly thankful for everything you did that day and continue to do!!!

I will stop by each time I visit the Island to say "Hi" to my friends Glenn and Jane. Thanks for everything!

I started working with John Robinson (JR) after realizing I wasn't getting the results I wanted from my initial realtor. I knew from the very beginning that I had made the right choice. John was always available, responsive and knowledgeable about the market I was targeting. I had complete confidence in his abilities and expertise to guide me through the real estate sales process. He always stayed on top of things, and came through in record time with any actions that needed to be taken. He is very resourceful, respectful and listened to my needs and concerns. He kept me informed on every step of the process when my villa was listed, when an offer was presented, and on everything leading up to the closing. He goes over and beyond what other realtors I've encountered are willing to do to reach the client's end goal. I could not ask for anything more from a realtor! I would highly recommend John to all of my friends and colleagues without hesitation.

Stacha Schiller-Stinson is amazing. Stacha worked with me prior to my move to SC from my home in CT. She emailed me constantly with homes that were on the market and any new updates all the time. She knew exactly what I was looking for and found home after home and kept emailing me photos with details. When I would contact her by phone, she was there for me. It was totally a one-on-one professional business meeting over the phone. When I finally came down to SC from CT. she met me at the hotel and took me out to see the homes one after the other.  We did this for 4-5 days. Sometimes we went back to a home to compare the layout of both the interior and exterior. We measured wall space for the furniture I was bringing with me. I took the dimensions and brought photos and we worked from those sources. When I made up my mind, it turned out a perfect success. She was with me all the way and never gave up hope that I would find the perfect home for me. She helped me pick a winner. If anyone needs a realtor/friend to work with, Stacha is the person you would want to help you purchase a home.

John Robinson is a Realtor extraordinaire. He handled my short sale with compassion, professionalism, and assistance that was not required as part of a Realtor's purview. The process was much less stressful than I had anticipated -- thanks to John. I researched the process and interviewed numerous Realtors before deciding on a listing Realtor. I decided on John, who came highly recommended. He connected me with attorneys that also made the process painless. John worked with all parties involved negotiating in my best interest. I have dealt with several Realtors in the Hilton Head Island area and I can honestly say that I would use John in the future, no question. His card is the only Hilton Head Realtor's business card in my address book.

I recommend Jeff Hunt to anyone looking for property to purchase on Hilton Head Island, he was very professional, knowledgeable, and courteous!

I recently purchased a villa in Palmetto Dunes Resort with Jeff’s assistance as my realtor. Jeff was recommended highly by a realtor friend of mine whom has known Jeff for several years. He was extremely knowledgeable of the island and showed us many properties over a three month period.

Jeff helped is narrow down our options and skillfully matched us to the right property that matched us to the right property that matched our desired lifestyle. I live out of state and Jeff was very accommodating throughout the entire process, showing us numerous properties, negotiating the purchase, working attentively through the close process and even assisted us post close. It was/is very refreshing to work with a true professional such as Jeff. He was great to partner with though the entire experience. His knowledge of real estate in the Hilton Head Island market is exceptional. I highly recommend Jeff and his team. 

- Mike Norwood

Mike and Vicki McVey went above and beyond my expectations in getting my home sold. Their honest and consistent communication kept me informed through the entire process and I knew I could trust their advice. I recommend them to anyone selling a home. 

- Theresa Trichilo - Bluffton SC

My wife and I are so grateful to Jeff for his effort in helping us find and buy real estate on Hilton Head Island. The best word I can use to describe his efforts is "consultant". I view a consultant as someone who has the expertise you don't have. They don't tell you what you want to hear, they tell you what you need to hear. They don't just try to get you what you want, they try to help you understand what you need. They add value to the process.

That describes our interactions with Jeff perfectly. From figuring out where to look to figuring out what we could afford and helping understand our priorities, Jeff delivered true consulting, and thus, true value. He provided important information throughout which helped us narrow down our focus and finally find exactly what we wanted. But his consulting wasn't done there. He continued to provide important guidance through closing. At each step of the way, my wife and I were confident we were getting the right information, the best advice and that Jeff was focused on us. Now, we're happy Hilton Head Island property owners!

- Andrew and Heidi Kurtz - South Carolina
Ken Oliver is knowledgeable, thorough & reliable. He goes beyond the norm. I would recommend him to anyone!

- Elaine Pattinella - Pittsford, NY
Susan Falco provided us with valuable and professional real estate services throughout the course of our locating a home that suited us in both style, location and price. In addition, she offered helpful assistance about services in the area. Throughout all our many interactions she conducted herself in a highly professional manner. We would not hesitate to refer her to others who are also seeking similar assistance.

- Leona & Tom Liberty - Hilton Head Plantation

Working with Jeff Hunt of Dunes Marketing Group was a GREAT experience all the way around.  When you make a decision to purchase a second home you really hope it’s a fun and exciting experience in addition to making an informed decision.  This truly was – Jeff was informed and injected a calming conversational aspect that could only come from experience and a real understanding of what we, as buyers, were looking for in a second home.  Jeff first met us as a realtor but became a trusted advisor and friend in the process of helping us fulfill one of our dreams.  Anyone working with Jeff Hunt in their behalf truly has a great partner.  We are so pleased with our purchase and excited to be new homeowners on the Island.  THANKS JEFF!

- Doug and Nancy Reed Charleston, WV

               Phil and I would like to share our experience with purchasing property on HHI.  We have considered a retirement home over the last few years and finally settled on buying on the beautiful island of Hilton Head.  We had visited many times and determined this had the best options for us looking forward.  We were recommended to call Trish Weaver based on a friends advice because of her knowledge of Hilton Head and her experience as a realtor.   I had contacted Trish Weaver over the last year with inquires and she was always quick to respond and give great information regarding the properties we were interested in.  Once we were able to move in the direction of walking through several places we called Trish and she immediately responded to us on quick notice and made herself available.  She was so knowledgeable, friendly and  seemed to know where we would be best suited based on the questions she had asked of us.  We found a property we loved and Trish went to work.  Not being able to be on the island during the purchasing process was a little scary for us but Trish made sure every “I” was dotted and every “T” was crossed on our behalf , I felt very well taken care of during the whole process.  Trish stood in the gap during the whole purchase of our villa and even went to great lengths answering questions and making recommendations of contractors we would need once the purchase was complete.  We are so happy with our purchase and feel honored to call Trish a friend.  She works hard and fights for you just as she would her own family, I believe this wholeheartedly.   


- Phil and Lisa Begley
To Erline Smith: Jim and I are thrilled with our future ownership in Palmetto Dunes. It's a great little place and a good buy. We both want to thank you again for your hard work and determination to find us a fit. We both agreed that we would seek your help again in any future sales/purchases. Many thanks...

- Jim Faye & Kim Becker - Auburn, NH

Relocating from Minnesota to the Hilton Head Island area was quite frankly... SMOOTH!  We did not know a single soul. We put our complete trust in Marybeth's knowledge about this wonderful community. She listened to what our needs and interests were, and followed through on each and every one of them! Believe me, there were a lot of them!

We knew that Marybeth was always on our side throughout the entire process. The best part is that we now have a new friend - a friendship that will continue to grow! 

Anyone looking to purchase a home would be lucky to work with Marybeth.

- Carla & Jed Stafford
Doug and Trish Weaver did an outstanding job representing us as our Realtor. They began working with us a full year before we chose our home. Over that period of time, they worked tirelessly to ensure that we had a full picture of the island neighborhoods, and helped us to match our dreams with the right home. Their knowledge of the island is second to none. They helped us to negotiate a great sale, and we were able to close on our new home while out-of-state. They have both continued to help us even though our sale was completed a few months ago. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home on Hilton Head Island.

- Paula & Bob Cerbara - Langhorne, PA
Words that come to mind when I think of Christine Massey are professional, trustworthy, competent, organized and efficient. She knows the island, where growth happened, is happening & may happen. That was very important for my husband and me since we were buying real estate for investment purposes. With her guidance our first investment did very well for us. We anticipate the same for our most recent purchase because of the education she gave us about the island and its past pattern of growth. But the adjectives don't end there. She is also a fun, caring, wonderful person. After the first time working with her, she went from being my realtor, to being my friend that happens to be my realtor. I am soooo... proud that she gives of herself so freely in such a professional way. She makes the rest of us (realtors) look great.

- Monica Kappes - Marion, Iowa
Jane and Glenn Handley have been most cooperative as real estate agents. They return our calls promptly and keep us informed about the status of the market. They supply information about other properties for sale in our neighborhood. They provide us with updates on potential buyers going through our home, informing us of their comments. In particular, they have offered many suggestions to enhance out home...We strongly recommend them as professional and caring agents.

- Alvin & Mary Lou Fehrman - Bluffton, SC
Mary Clark: Just a quick note to sincerely thank you for all the work you did helping us purchase our town home in Hilton Head. We are very happy to have that house and it was your diligence and understanding of our needs that resulted in this acquisition. You were patient, persistent and efficient over the long period it took us to decide on the purchase. Your work did not stop when we purchased the unit but you assisted and still are assisting us with all the issues that a new buyer, especially one out of town, has. You make me feel very comfortable asking questions and you always get the answers and the help needed. I am very happy you are my Realtor and my friend.

- Ekram - Chagrin Falls, OH
I recently purchased a home in Hilton Head, SC and I wanted to share my experience with you regarding your agent Susan Falco. I visited HHI in late October and made contact with Susan through the Dunes Marketing website. Right away Susan set up properties to visit AT MY CONVENIENCE not hers... Her expertise and willingness to go the extra step made the whole process very pleasant. From mortgage and home inspection to choosing a lawyer, whatever it was, Susan had all the answers. NO is not in her vocabulary. I can't tell you how valuable she was and continues to be and how she really made my dream of new home a reality. When people say that SERVICE is gone in America...THEY HAVEN'T MET SUSAN FALCO. I am so glad Susan is my realtor for life in the Lowcountry

- Steve Soucy - Moss Creek, Hilton Head, SC
Susan Falco helped us find and purchase our Hilton Head Island home-away-from-home. She was able to identify and provide lists of available properties in our preferred area. Susan also took the time to show us the properties we selected as we prioritized and narrowed our search. When we finally decided on the best one for us, Susan presented our offer and worked between us and the seller's agent. She made it easy to complete all necessary details and kept us updated on all information through the final close. We would definitely call on Susan again for any of our real estate needs on Hilton Head Island.

- Bryan & Debbie Plonski - Ohio
A poem to Mary Clark, Realtor: From Hilton Head, Palmetto Dunes, to Turnberry From renting, to owning, to lots of hours with Mary We thank you for the journey, Not sure where it would lead But without your steady guidance It would not have been good, indeed! So here is to you Mary Clark And the smile you have put on our faces YES Hilton Head Island is one of the Most beautiful of all places.

- Lyla, David & Zoom - Pittsburgh, PA

"Colleen is the finest realtor we have dealt with during the many buying and selling transactions we have participated in over the years.  From our first meeting to review her market analysis and marketing plans through the sale and closing, she showed a dedication and attention to detail that many realtors lack.  Many times during the process she demonstrated a high degree of integrity and honesty in always putting our interest ahead of her own.  She was always available and provided quick responses to our many questions and concerns.  Colleen went above and beyond the traditional realtor role by assisting us in finding reputable sources to support preparations for the sale and move.  Our experience was shared by the friends we have referred to her.  You could not find a finer realtor or person with whom to entrust the sale or purchase of your home and we recommend her highly".

- Terry & Pam Whitlock

Marybeth is a true professional. She understood my needs and worked in a determined fashion to get my property sold at the best price the market would allow. She is knowledgeable, honest and respectful. I have recommended Marybeth to friends moving to Hilton Head and will continue to do so.

- Will & Eithne Gorman
Jeff and Tim did a phenomenal job marketing our property. In a difficult market, we were still booking showing several times weekly. This visibility helped us sell our home in less than a month - for a price higher than anticipated.  I would certainly recommend this team to anyone looking to list their property.

- Liza Theiling - SC
It was a pleasure working with Sharyn. Anytime we had a concern or problems, they were handled right away. It was not easy to leave our home and friends from Pennsylvania. We are very appreciative and grateful for the friendly transaction.

- Linda & Tom Ketchem - Holmdel, NJ

When I decided to sell my home, I chose Trish Weaver, Dunes Real Estate, as my real estate agent. Trish turned out to be everything a seller could wish for, she always did what she said, very professional, and was in touch with me daily, she made everything smooth sailing. It took only 66 days to sell my home and I owe it all to Dunes Real Estate, for the media exposure they gave my home. It was superb. I would definitely recommend Trish Weaver if you need a dedicated real estate agent in the Low Country. Trish has also helped with purchasing my dream house. Thanks Trish!!!

- Sheila Clark

 My husband and I have wanted to move to Hilton Head Island for years and when the time was right, we signed a buyer’s agreement with Trish Weaver representing the Dunes Marketing Group. She came to our attention through a chance encounter at golf and we count our lucky stars for being introduced to her! Trish’s expertise, knowledge, and personable attitude made our dream come true. Even though we lived out of state, Trish always kept our needs and wants foremost in her mind and she went out of her way to accommodate our timing, questions, and schedule. Her intellect, personality, and attention to details make her a true gem! And now that we’ve been here for a bit, she continues to be there for us as we transition – a true source of information and insight – always! Anyone contemplating a move to Hilton Head should look no further than Trish. In our eyes, she is “the best” and we will always highly recommend her for any realty needs. Not only is she our realtor, she is now our neighbor and friend.

- Clay and Susan Matthews - Richmond, VA.
We would like to formally thank your company and especially Michael Weppner for all the hard work done in assisting with the purchase of our home. We were referred to Michael via our local relocation team at Rector-Hayden Realty in Lexington, Kentucky. We could not have asked for a better agent. From the moment of our first phone conversation, Michael was always organized and professional. It was extremely stressful purchasing a home out of state, but Michael was always comforting and kept us very informed throughout the entire process. I would strongly recommend Michael as well as your group to anyone with real estate needs.

I met John Robinson at his Shelter Cove HarbourFest real estate booth a few summers ago and inquired about rental villas near the beach on Hilton Head Island. John was very knowledgeable about the local market and helped my wife and me find the perfect villa for our family. John helped us throughout the entire closing process as we live many miles away in Cincinnati. We stay in touch with John as he has become a friend and future golf partner!

- Mark & Renee Heidrich - Cincinnati, OH

We are new owners of a home in Hilton Head Plantation and it is largely due to the efforts of our realtor, John Robinson of Dunes Marketing Group. Previously we had been condo owners in Fiddlers Cove but I felt that we had outgrown our condo and as retirement approached thought that we were ready for a house. We visited the Dunes Marketing Group office and were fortunate enough to be paired up with JR. Although it took us over two years to finally decide on a place (one partner was more willing to pursue looking than the other one was) I can't tell you how pleased we both were with JR's service. I would have given up on us early in the proceedings but JR's patience, vast knowledge of the Island and it's real estate and most importantly his friendship spurred us on to a final decision.

A number of times I visited the Island for a "girls week at the beach" with friends and JR was always more than happy to take my friends and me around to look at possible houses. His patience, humor and understanding finally lead us to where we are today. My husband is the more reticent partner in our marriage and I was amazed at how well JR could draw him out and actually get him involved in our search. It is truly thanks to JR and his people and business skills that we are now happy homeowners on Hilton Head Island. I would not hesitate to recommend him and should we ever need to leave this beautiful place I know that we will use him as our realtor. He works very hard for you, yet his personality is such that you truly enjoy spending time with him during the arduous process of house hunting. He made our transaction a breeze and he has remained a friend to us. Truly unusual in today's business world. I hope that you will feel confidant to use JR because he WILL come through for you.

- Jan Gantzhorn - Hilton Head Plantation

Stacha Schiller-Stinson is simply a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the area and quick response to questions made a typically stressful time a breeze. As a retired real estate company owner I'm very particular of whom I work with and Stacha exceeded my expectations.

- Frank - South Carolina
My husband and I love Hilton Head and decided to look for a second home on the island but really didn't know where to start. Thank goodness we found our realtor John Robinson! Living on the island himself, he knows all the ins and outs of the island and patiently helped us find the perfect place. Living in Northern Virginia I had some concerns about how we were going to manage all the paperwork of purchasing a house while residing out of state but JR had everything under control. He provided all the necessary documentation quickly, assisted us in finding a mortgage lender, and even provided phone numbers for the local cable, electric and trash companies. The actual purchase of our second home was one of the easiest processes we've ever experienced! We are so grateful to JR and still keep in touch with him whenever we visit the Island.

- Ryan & Kimberly Saba - Virginia
Sweet Erline,  I've never figured all this out because I don't have to... We are actually here in HHI and wishing you were sitting on our deck. I've never met a more intelligent or personable agent than you and if we can help you in any way, please let us know. You're the best.

- Shirley Eadline - Hilton Head Island, SC
If it is honesty, trust, and professionalism that you are looking for, then Stacha Schiller-Stinson is the realtor for you. My wife and I liked her from day one and are now 3x repeat customers. The reason being she is such an honest, trustful and helping person hard to come by these days. She is very knowledgeable and knows all the communities and will not steer you in the wrong direction just to make a sale. She has a lot of patience and will always work around your schedule not hers, she truly is the best realtor we have ever dealt with and their have been plenty over the years.

- John & Monique Cassandro - NY & Bluffton, SC

As a past real estate company owner with over 90 agents I recognize excellence in an agents ability and skills. We hired Stacha as a buyer's agent with the full confidence that she would be able to represent us throught our transaction with both skill and honesty. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs.

- Frank
Dot Holly, Words cannot express how thankful we are for your help and expertise in helping us to find our perfect "home" in Hilton Head. The past two years you've been very patient and helpful. We could not be anymore happier with our purchase...We hope to always stay in touch with you on our returns!

- Carl & Suzie Frantz - Hilton Head Island, SC
To Dot Holly: David and I want to thank you for being the very best Realtor! Your work was perfect! Dot, you made the experience as pleasant as possible. We would like to thank you and your husband for the lovely evening at Sea Pines. We enjoyed it so very much. Thank you so much for the champagne. What a treat! Again, you were so very kind to David and me. We will sing and do sing your praises everywhere we go!

- Stark & David Zauber - Greensboro, NC

I spent the winter of 2014 in Hilton Head to avoid the Ohio winter. I decided to check out the real estate here so my good friend back home recommended Marybeth. Marybeth really listened to my desires : a contemporary home on a wooded lot near a golf course and the water at the right price, of  course. I found her gregarious, trustworthy, sincere, knowledgeable, and intuitive. With her invaluable help and guidance , I bought my dream home that winter. I am so pleased. I enthusiastically recommend her. She is a wonderful person as well as a great real estate agent.

Dear Renee,

Tink and I want to thank you for your efforts in finding our property in Port Royal Plantation. Neither of us can think of another thing you could have done to make our search for property more pleasant and efficient. We greatly appreciate your concern and professional approach as a real estate agent. Be assured that we will highly recommend you and Dunes Marketing Group to any of our friends seeking property or a home in Hilton Head. We look forward to continuing a personal relationship as we go through the building process in Port Royal.

Again Renee, thank you. Sincerely, Phil & Tink

The service and personal attention we received from Trish Weaver was exceptional and unexpected from a realtor. She is truly a high-caliber professional realtor. Her knowledge of the local market and her experience in dealing with out of state clients made our search for our vacation home painless and pleasurable. After patiently going through and showing us many listings of our target homes, we found the best value purchase for our budget. Trish spent numerous hours researching, negotiating, and explaining important details of the market with us. She was constantly in touch with us and available to us when we needed her time and expertise. Even after the closing she has remained in contact with us. She helped us purchase furniture, find local handy men to do odd jobs around our home, and allowed us to hire her son to help us with the upkeep of our property while we are away. She knows what clients need to do to make a smooth transition into island living. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Trish Weaver and Dunes Marketing group to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better realtor to guide us through the process.

- Karen & Tom Stevenson - Hilton Head Island

"It’s been over three years since my wife and I purchased a condo on Hilton Head Island located in Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort with the help of our realtor, John Robinson.

We were so impressed with the way John conducted business for us -- in the past, when we've purchased a home, the realtor gave us some business cards and then disappeared after the closing. But not John Robinson!

Each time we've had a question, needed a resource, had an issue, John was there for us!   All I had to do was email or message him over the years and John's response was always the same:  "how can I help you?"  It was as if we just met.

Aside from always being there for us, realtor John Robinson was there for all of those who had to be evacuated from Hilton Head Island during the hurricane of 2016.  John Robinson was instrumental in doing everything he could in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, coordinating resources, assisting residents, and keeping in touch with all of us who live out of state through Facebook & emails. He didn’t do this for a photo opportunity, he did this because this is the type of person he is.  John Robinson lives on the island and is committed to the quality of life for all of us.

So, if you are looking for a Hilton Head Island realtor with integrity, a moral compass, and won't hand you a stack of cards after the sale and disappear, we highly recommend realtor John Robinson with Dunes Real Estate on Hilton Head Island!"

"Stacha is one of the kindest people I know, couple that with the fact that she is one incredible agent and you have the perfect combination of talent, skill, knowledge, and attitude. She has helped me purchase my new home here in Bluffton SC. I have purchased and sold over 50 homes in my lifetime and Stacha made this purchase the most pleasant transaction yet. Her attention to detail and personal concern goes above and beyond expectations. Thank you so much for helping me find and close on my home! Your professionalism and friendship have been invaluable."

- stevetlcllc, Bluffton, SC 29910
From our very first contact with her via email, Stacha has been a friendly, helpful, sales professional.  We will be moving to Bluffton from New York, and she has always been there for us whether it was thru phone calls, emails, texts, etc!   She always has a helping hand and happy, friendly voice to help steer us.  Whenever we've had a question, she has gotten an answer quickly and efficiently.  We are enjoying going thru this process with her.  We recommend Stacha highly!

Erline - I wanted to thank you again for your time and such an enjoyable afternoon.  We have purchased many properties and have worked with many Realtors, but have not enjoyed or respected anyone as much as we did working with you.

- Charlie & Jane Barber
We just listed our property with Ken. His (and his team's) responsiveness has been great and it has been a very easy process. Additionally, everyone we have had to deal with on the island that we've mentioned we listed with Ken has told us, "You are in good hands with Ken Oliver."

Hello Dunes Marketing Group: Recently I purchased a piece of property at Treetops Villas on Hilton Head Island. I obtained your agent, John Robinson, as my Realtor. Working in the retail industry and owning two businesses of my own, I realize that what is predominately heard are complaints. I wanted to give you a compliment and let you know that John Robinson is an asset to your company and did a tremendous job for me. John went above and beyond helping me purchase this piece of property. John is very efficient; when we needed help, he got it done immediately. John helped me in several areas and made recommendations when I needed them, and they were superb. John was very organized and always had quick answers for my questions. John made this entire experience run smoothly and if there were problems that arose, he was Johnny On The Spot to fix them! I was very impressed with his performance before, during, and after the transaction. Being a new resident of Hilton Head Island, I left this experience knowing that if I had any questions or needed recommendations, John would gladly help me. My goal is to eventually have my villa increase in value, and I can assure you I will use Dunes Marketing Group. This is because of John Robinson. My family and I thank you as John found us exactly what we wanted and made it such a pleasant experience.

We visited Hilton Head for a tennis tournament and fell in love with the area and the people. A tennis opponent introduced us to Mary Clark but there was no time to house shop. After a few months of discussing what we were interested in and looking online at the houses Mary had sent us, we decided to visit HH again in person. Mary was impeccable in her preparation for the visit. She chose a variety of house styles and exposed us to many different communities on the island. Of the 6 properties we saw that day, 3 were potential hits. We decided on a place in Hilton Head Plantation – the last property we visited. It had a pool, a golf course view and a water view –all characteristics we told Mary we were not interested in. But it was the house for us. Once the decision was made, Mary's experience in negotiating the final price and connecting us with the title company, mortgage broker and house inspector put us at home. Through those 3 days we were treated like a King and Queen. We were extremely satisfied with Mary's professionalism and knowledge, her relationships and her friendliness. A month later we closed on the house and celebrated with our new friends. We have been back just recently and love our Hilton Head family. I would recommend Mary Clark to anyone who wants to purchase a home here. We can't wait to move to HH permanently and enjoy our new home.

- Michele & Pete Archibald - Annapolis, MD
We have been coming to Hilton Head for almost twenty years & have always wanted to call the Island "home" someday. When we first met Mary Clark in August 2007 we were immediately attracted to her warm, friendly, caring, trustworthy, & charismatic personality. Her knowledge of the island is impeccable. When we flew back to Hilton Head the following month to look numerous properties (along with our 2 year old daughter), Mary was well-prepared for an active weekend! Not only did we see properties that were of our interest, but others that she thought might be possibilities. Mary always had our concerns at heart; she took the time to truly get to know our family and understand our short and long term goals. As out of town second home buyers, Mary assisted us with and took care of the seemingly overwhelming details such as obtaining an attorney, arranging the closing, being present for the inspection, and other activities requiring supervision. Mary has become part of our extended family and we know that we can always count on her not only as a realtor but as a friend. Thanks to Mary's diligent efforts we can now call this lovely tropical paradise home!

Glenn and Jane,

 How can we ever thank you enough for hanging in there with us on the world's longest real estate search for the perfect house. I'm quite sure that there were many times you wanted to write us off as shoppers only, but you didn't.

You made life easy for us from the beginning until the closing. Every step of the way you held our hand. You are both the consummate professionals and perfect partners in the process. Patient, thorough, detailed and always listening to what we liked and what we didn't and only showing us houses that fit our profile. You never pushed, you knew that we would know it when we saw it and you were right.

 Most of all though, the real bonus is your friendship. It has been fun sharing our HHI adventures with you. Little did we know we would have so much in common and hit it off so well.

 We look forward to many more HHI adventures with you.



- Ro & Jim
Our process of finding an investment/retirement property near the beach on Hilton Head Island required great patience. Using information Jane and Glenn helped us gather, we were able to create a good analytical guide for the current market prices. With Jane and Glenn showing us the properties, and sometimes going to see properties on our behalf (as we were out of town), we made offers on a few properties in various locations which did not pan out for a variety of reasons.  Jane and Glenn hung in there with us for months and directed us back to a property where the listing price had moved towards other recent value sales. Their persistence, attentiveness, and patience led us to a successful purchase...delightfully in Palmetto Dunes. This was not an easy project. But through it all Jane and Glenn remained delightful and committed...and we are appreciative of their assistance.

My wife (Linda) and I asked Jeff to find us a place in Hilton Head. We told him exactly what we were looking for and the price range that the home should be in.  Jeff was excellent to work with.  He took us to several homes and condos that he thought that would fit our needs.  We were also looking on the internet and whenever we found something that looked interesting, we would give Jeff a call and make an appointment and drive down from Columbia.  He found us an excellent place and helped negotiate the price. 

Linda and I knew exactly what we were looking for and I know that we had to try his patience which he never seem to lose.

After finding our place, Jeff stopped by to make sure that everything was working properly and that we were happy with our purchase.  Jeff was an excellent realtor to work with and very professional.  I highly recommend him and we would certainly use him again. 

Thank you, Jeff

"After buying my house 5 years ago with Glenn and Jane, I knew that when I was ready to sell my house that I would ask for their help again. Not only have they kept my best interest throughout the entire process, but they've made selling my house easy and fast!" 

- Amber Reynolds

We are so appreciative of all your help. You have been supportive and a true advocate for us as we sold our home and we are so thankful for you making this process as smooth as possible. We will gladly recommend you to friends and family! You have kept us calm and at ease in what could be a very stressful situation and we are so grateful. Thank you again for all your support.

Dear Trish Weaver,

  Phil and I wanted to thank you for all you have done for us.  We were blessed to have you as our agent.  Thank you for everything!  It was wonderful getting to know you and hopefully, we can do dinner soon!

From the very first time I listened to the voice on the other end of the phone, I knew Marybeth was listening to what I was looking for ~ all while adding suggestions of her own.

I was calling from Ohio, looking to move to Hilton Head Island South Carolina.

From her infectious
  laugh, to her sense of style Marybeth knows where to begin showing homes and she knows where to end...with what "YOU" want . I know, I bought three beautiful homes from her!

Marybeth has one of the best personalities for getting you into what you are looking for. Marybeth makes you feel special with every showing. She is very informative about the area, taxes, school systems and some "GREAT CONTRACTORS" in this area.

Her personal touch, her background, her real "follow through" personality makes you feel as if you have been friends for years. An amazing family person, she has the BEST personality for getting you what you want!

- Mary Jarosz

If your thinking of buying or selling in HHP, Marybeth Buonaiuto would be our recommendation.

We have purchased two homes from her & sold one recently, both purchases were short sales.  Marybeth never stopped working to resolve the difficult issues to close the sale.

Marybeth is professional and conscientious, her knowledge of marketing and relocating along with her willingness to go above and beyond is outstanding. Marybeth has provided us with staging tips, professional photography, 3D video and open houses, all which were extremely beneficial to the sale of our home.

She continues to assist us with our real estate needs long after the closings, a great resource. As she says, “Hilton Head Plantation is the island's best-kept secret!”

- The Schaffners

The service and personal attention I received from Dunes Marketing Group's John Robinson in 2011 was nothing short of exceptional. I highly recommend John Robinson to you for your Realtor services.

Shortly after my husband's death, I found myself saddled with three unproductive out-of-state rental properties. I hired John upon high praise and recommendation from my real estate attorney, Dean Bell, LLC. Hilton Head Island, SC. John took the deals on knowing that at least one of them would be a short sale, a time-sucking process that not many Realtors are licensed to deal with or want to touch.

John's guidance was instrumental in quick offers on all three properties.

John took initiative time and again, tending to details from dealing with unpleasant tenants, to scheduling repairs and maintenance to ready the properties for sale, to dealing with banks and lawyers on short sale issues. All the while, John's positive attitude and true professionalism has showed through in every communication. John provided more time than I had ever expected, and I truly can't express how comforting it was to know he was at the helm during a very rough time. John gives Realtors a good name.

I have never met John personally and yet I feel he is a friend as well as my professional Realtor.

Most sincerely, Kitty Brussock

To Debbie Hillis: Thank you so much for all you have done! You are the best Realtor we have ever worked with - and this is our eleventh home!

- Nancy Novak - Hilton Head, SC

My husband and I first met Jane and Glenn Handley several years ago when visiting HHI. Purchasing a vacation rental on the island was just a notion for us but they were happy to show us several units in different areas which gave us a great perspective and idea of where we might want to purchase some day. They kept in touch with us and four years later we contacted them asking to see several condos while on vacation there in February. I'm happy to say that with their help, patience, and guidance, we were able to choose a condo and we are now the proud owners of an HHI vacation rental. We are looking forward to working with the Handleys again in the future!

- Rita Webb
Dan & Debbie Lowman: What a surprise when I went to Brooke's to pick up my dog and was told that my "Realtor had already taken care of it." Thank you so very much! It was such a thoughtful and nice thing for you to do. Thanks also for all your efforts regarding the Realtor tour. I am enjoying working with you both and I am glad that Bob C. suggested that you call me. Thank you again for my pleasant surprise. PS. I forgot to say "thanks" for the wraps and chips. Yummy!

John spent many weeks and months with us and showed us many areas at different locations. We finally decided on Abbey Glen. John was very helpful with the final legal paperwork that needed to be done, even though we were living in upstate New York. Just before we were to move down, for personal reasons and health problems, we had to cancel the contract. There again, John was very helpful working with the folks at Abbey Glen for us to be able to cancel. John just has a great way with people. Every September we come down to Hilton Head to stay at the Grand Ocean Resort for two weeks and always meet him for lunch or dinner. This past September we came down with my sister-in-law and a friend of hers who always wanted a place on a lake in upstate New York. I introduced him to John and before you know it John shows him a place in Bluffton and he is very happy to go with it, and forget about upstate NY. I just think John is the best and I would recommend him to anyone. I know if things change for my husband and me and we decide to come down to Hilton Head Island he will be the first person I'll call. John you are the best!!!!!

I worked with Jeff and his team on the sale of our property in Palmetto Dunes. This sale was complicated as it was a quick sale, I was in another state, and there were complicating factors with the old management company. Jeff and his team navigated this sea of landmines with tenacity, courteousness and professionalism resulting in a positive outcome. I am happy to endorse Jeff and his team and would not hesitate to use their services in the future.

I just spent my first long visit at our new home on Hilton Head.  I wanted to tell you how happy we are with our new home.  And, to say thanks for all your help in making a dream come true.

- Karen Momberger
We recently purchased a quartershare villa on Hilton Head Island and were fortunate to have John Robinson assisting us with the transaction. He was very helpful in each stage of the process and always responded to emails or phone calls promptly. He also made recommendations for other professionals, including a home inspection service, lawyer and several rental agencies. Because of his attention to detail and follow-up, our closing was handled promptly and professionally, despite being done long distance during the Christmas/New Year's holiday. This meant we were able to immediately utilize our winter timeshare. We highly recommend his services.

- Gail & Fred Sobotkin - Millford, DE
and are so excited about becoming real Hilton Head Islanders! Thanks again for all of your help and guidance throughout this process! We really got lucky when we chose you both as our realtors; and wanted to personally thank you for not only for your honesty and professionalism, but your genuine interest in helping us achieve our dream. Thank you for all your patience in showing us so MANY houses--some of which were quite memorable! We not only found a great realtor team, but we've also made our first friends at Hilton Head!

- Rich & Judy Brueggman - Hilton Head Island, SC

Dear Susan,

I wanted to reach out to you and express our sincere appreciation for your guidance in purchasing our home in Hilton Head. From the very first moment my husband and I started conversation with you; we felt trust. We saw immediately your knowledge of the area and that has only shown itself to us more as time has passed. You connected with us and recognized our desires and helped us find a new home that we love! It has been a pleasure working with you and we look forward to enjoying many happy years in the community!

We sincerely thank you for your professionalism and your diligent effort which resulted in our trust and confidence in your ability to consummate the transaction. We are pleased to recommend The Lowman Team for any real estate marketing in the future.

Thanks to Trish Weaver’s patience and perseverance, I am a happy homeowner on the Island. She listened to my needs and interests and took the time to not only show me the area, but to point out the places I expressed interest in. As a licensed realtor in NJ, I am familiar with the buying process, but Trish thoroughly explained how the process worked in SC. She always provided me with valuable documentation to assist in my purchase, without me ever having to ask. I trusted Trish’s judgment and she was always available to answer any questions. She made this purchase effortless. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

John Robinson of the Dunes Marketing Group was the best help we could have hoped for in our purchase of a new villa and the sale of our old one. John is the consummate professional, with extensive knowledge of the market, works extremely well with his clients and is highly respected by his peers. He is attentive without being pushy and continued to be very helpful to us even after the closing with several loose ends. He positioned the villa we hoped to sell perfectly and it sold to the first potential buyer in a difficult market, less than a week on the market. We highly recommend him for any real estate transaction in the area.

- John & Barbara Porter - Knoxville, TN
Kim Davis has helped us buy and sell numerous properties on Hilton Head Island. When we were selling property, he helped us price our property correctly, expertly marketed it and sold it for almost full asking price. When we bought property, he helped us pick out the best properties at the best prices and negotiated fantastic deals for us. In short, we can not imagine having a more competent, honest, professional Realtor. We will use no one else!

- Dennis and Nancy Novak
Your customer focused approach is unbelievable! You were able to take our list of interests and possibilities and narrow them down to the property we needed. We would not hestitate to recommend you to our family and friends. Thanks again!

Moving? Downsizing? Or just bored with the same old... if you are on the move, you will need plenty of help, especially with the details. You need someone who knows the real estate market and the people to contact to get things done quickly and efficiently. Renee is the right person. She will stay with the challenge from the beginning to the end. Renee is reliable and always available. And she gives the best advice - we know! Thanks Renee.

Stacha Schiller-Stinson was our realtor in December 2012 for the purchase of our condo. She made herself available on weekends and evenings to address any questions or concerns. Stacha was professional and it was a pleasure to work with her.

- Mary and Warren

Stacha Schiller-Stinson is a winner! We are so fortunate to have her as our real estate agent. She was there for us every step of the way as we reviewed the Moss Creek Plantation, her insight was invaluable as we navigated through the market. Stacha carried us through the statistics, market evaluation, and best of all site visits to each home on the market. If you are interested in real estate and would like to work with a true professional, then do talk with Stacha. She will guide you through the market and enable you to find the very best at true market values.

- James and Libby Cunningham

No question about it, this was by far THE BEST realtor experience we've ever had. We were very fortunate that Stacha just happened to be in the office when we walked in unannounced, newly arrived from New York, and knowing absolutely nothing about the local housing market. Stacha immediately understood what we were looking for and, over the ensuing few months demonstrated remarkable patience in taking us to see dozens of properties in the area. Even though we were targeting the lower end of the market, Stacha couldn't have been any more attentive had we been looking for a million dollar plus home. She always found time for us. Once something meeting our needs was identified, Stacha handled the details of the transaction from offers through to closing expertly. She made the process as stress free as it could possibly have been. At this point, we consider Stacha to be more friend than realtor. Apart from being an ace realtor, she's a totally delightful person. The down side to finding a house is that we no longer get to hang out with Stacha. Bottom line: If you're looking for a house in the Bluffton, SC area, do yourself a favor and track down Stacha Schiller-Stinson.

Erline Smith, we have just returned to Scotland today and picked up your message. Sorry we did not see you again but we were busy visiting the surrounding areas and enjoying the sunshine and warmth. We had a wonderful holiday and plan to return to Hilton Head again. Thank you for your assistance and your very warm southerly welcome.

Ken has been very helpful for me and my son as we have bought and sold property on HHI for the past ten years. Ken keeps his finger on the pulse of the island and stays in touch before, during, and after the sale. As long as we have known him he has maintained either the number 1 or 2 top agent award on the island.

- Robert P. - Scranton, PA
Susan is a very knowledgeable and empathetic salesperson. She was able to assess our home preferences immediately, and focused only on properties that potentially matched those preferences. Once we decided on a property she ably assisted in the negotiations, recommended a mortgage company and a great attorney, and acted as intermediary during a difficult closing process. We would not be owners of a home in Hilton Head without her continuing assistance and support.

Hello Dunes Marketing Group: My wife and I met John Robinson two years ago while vacationing on Hilton Head Island. After many years of vacations on the Island, we decided to become owners. John was one of several realtors with whom we spoke, but John was clearly the most responsive and attentive. Over the past two years, we have now purchased two properties on Hilton Head Island. During the process, John was not only helpful, he was also knowledgeable about the real estate market and how certain properties fit into our real estate choices. John clearly spent the time to assist us in our search and made solid recommendations. John was organized and stayed in touch with us every step of the way as we closed on transactions from outside the state. Not only did John help with his experience before and during the process, he continued his level of professionalism even long after the closing. Thankfully, we have John as a trusted and reliable resource. More importantly, we have John as a friend on the Island!

- Paul M. - Pennsylvania

"It’s been over three years since my wife and I purchased a condo on Hilton Head Island located in Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort with the help of our realtor, John Robinson.

We were so impressed with the way John conducted business for us -- in the past, when we've purchased a home, the realtor gave us some business cards and then disappeared after the closing. But not John Robinson!

Each time we've had a question, needed a resource, had an issue, John was there for us!   All I had to do was email or message him over the years and John's response was always the same:  "how can I help you?"  It was as if we just met.

Aside from always being there for us, realtor John Robinson was there for all of those who had to be evacuated from Hilton Head Island during the hurricane of 2016.  John Robinson was instrumental in doing everything he could in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, coordinating resources, assisting residents, and keeping in touch with all of us who live out of state through Facebook & emails. He didn’t do this for a photo opportunity, he did this because this is the type of person he is.  John Robinson lives on the island and is committed to the quality of life for all of us.

So, if you are looking for a Hilton Head Island realtor with integrity, a moral compass, and won't hand you a stack of cards after the sale and disappear, we highly recommend realtor John Robinson with Dunes Real Estate on Hilton Head Island!"

I would have to say the biggest thing that helped us make the decision to build our home at Hampton Lake in Bluffton, SC would have to be the infrastructure in this area as other areas we considered did not. Savannah is very close, which is a big city in comparison to some other places that made you feel you were somewhat isolated. Charleston is not very far away and a great place to spend the day. There are so many beautiful places close enough to our new home in Hampton Lake to spend the day, eat out, or just enjoy the scenery such as Beaufort, Savannah, Hilton Head and Tybee Island. We found a church very quickly when we moved here, which was a big decision maker for us.

And let's be honest, being this close to the beach to go whenever we want, is fantastic!! John Robinson, you were such a big help to us in searching for just the right place and we appreciate it so much! We love our new custom built home in Hampton Lake!

We bought a condo on the Island in 2013 with Marybeth's professional assistance. Only one year later, we had help again from Marybeth in selling our condo at a terrific profit! Lucky us! Marybeth has continued to be our go-to agent for HHI real estate, and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in any price range. In fact, we are about to contact her again for another purchase in paradise!

To Christine Massey: My wife Elli and I have just moved into our new home at The Preserve @ Indigo Run. This note is to express our appreciation and thanks. Your representation was professional and courteously handled. Your coordination between the selling broker, bank, our Attorney and all other parties associated with our purchase was handled in an expeditious manner which resulted in a smooth transition to our new location. We would like you to know; that we would be happy to provide a reference to any new clients you may have the opportunity to represent in the future.

Jeff, For over a year we have been trading long distance calls and e-mails. You have been most helpful answering our questions, searching for potential properties, referring us to the right people, listening to our particularly long stories/needs, and putting things in motion so we could buy our townhouse on Hilton Head Island.  Certainly, you have earned our respect and trust;  and for that we very appreciative and thankful. 

- Dawn & Patrick Miller
Selling our home in Hilton Head, and moving back North, was a major decision we had to make!  We built our home, lived and worked in Hilton Head for 24 wonderful years, and have many wonderful friends and memories there.  We had our house on the market for  6 short months, then decided to take it off and wait until the market came back, we were in no hurry.  Jeff was one of the many agents who brought clients in during that time and he remembered our home.  We got a call from him, months later,  asking if we were still interested in selling and that he had some clients he felt our home would be perfect for.  And so our journey began.   Jeff was always considerate of our convenience and made sure that the arrangements, for both parties, were on time and followed through.  His professionalism is to be commended!   Not only did he remember our home for the right buyer, but he made the selling of our home the smoothest it could have been while making the purchase for the buyers equally enjoyable.  His attention to detail,  connection and communication with both parties throughout this transaction, and  his knowledge, made our move an enjoyable one.  Not to mention he was fun to work with!  We will always recommend Jeff to others who are looking for any type of real estate transaction, whether buying or selling.  He truly is the best!

Glenn and Jane Handley were wonderful to work with when we decided to look for a new home at Hilton Head. They could not have been more accommodating, spending several days showing us various condos. They made everything so easy and would happily use them again for a real estate choice in Hilton Head.

To Paul Daniels: Teresa and I were discussing our HHI home over the weekend (as we do often). We want to tell you both again how much we appreciate your work, your assistance and your advice. We could not have been more pleased with the project. Paul, it was a difficult negotiation and without your patience and experience, the deal would not have come together.

- Mark & Teresa Carroll - SC
Jackie is tireless when matching a client to a home. Her professionalism is superb even in difficult negotiations, and her skills and advice are invaluable to the buyer and seller.
We have used Jackie both as a listing and buyers agent with great results every time. Her knowledge of the market is impeccable.

"Stacha is one of the kindest people I know, couple that with the fact that she is one incredible agent and you have the perfect combination of talent, skill, knowledge, and attitude. She has helped me purchase my new home here in Bluffton SC. I have purchased and sold over 50 homes in my lifetime and Stacha made this purchase the most pleasant transaction yet. Her attention to detail and personal concern goes above and beyond expectations. Thank you so much for helping me find and close on my home! Your professionalism and friendship have been invaluable."

- Steve L.

Marybeth was invaluable during the purchase of our home. She was up to date with the new FEMA laws and helped us find the contractors we needed to close. She is a professional all the way. My husband & I recommend her highly for your real estate needs.

Dear Doug,

Four months ago today, I closed on my new house at 36 Yorkshire Drive. I wanted to let you know how pleased I am that I chose you as my realtor.

Since the beginning, I appreciated your patience and commitment to help me find a house in Wexford. As we looked at houses there was never any pressure, just interest in helping me find the right house.

Your willingness to accommodate my busy schedule was greatly appreciated. Your knowledge of the area and ability to always get back to me quickly with answers to my questions was most helpful. You were simply always available to help and where I needed you when I needed you. You made sure all the details with the seller, inspector, insurance agents, attorneys, etc, were attended to regardless of what it took and you were always prompt and professional with your responses. I can't thank you enough for all your help.

There is no question that looking for, finding and buying a house can be a stressful situation. However, because I chose to work with you it was nothing less than a great experience. You did everything you said you would do and are still doing it today. I appreciate that very much.

Please feel free to give my name to any potential clients you may have as I would be more than happy to share the many reasons why you should be their realtor too.

Best Regards,

- David Cousins

Dear Renee,

I write to thank you for your help in finding a home on Hilton Head Island. Your personal integrity, work ethic, and social skills combine to make you a true gem in the professional ranks. I appreciate that you are such a good listener. Your knowledge of the Island and the current real estate market is so valuable in steering the client to the right property. Your customer service is outstanding! You do indeed "follow through." I wish you continued success in the field and look forward to working with you again.

About 7 years ago we decided that we were ready to look for a home on Hilton Head Island. We had the good fortune to meet up with John Robinson and immediately hit it off. He and my husband talked tennis while JR and I traded jokes. It was a delightful experience and he soon found us exactly what we wanted. In the time since then he has continued to be an immense help to us in so many aspects.His recommendations for contractors, painters etc. have always been good ones. During the recent hurricane he again proved to be a tremendous help. He traveled around the Island checking on clients homes and sending pictures of safe or damaged structures to them. He also put people in contact with clean up help and equipment. Your association with John Robinson does not end once you buy a house. He will always be there for you. 

- John & Jan Gantzhorn - Hilton Head Island, SC

We recently purchased a property on Hilton Head Island. Congratulations to Dunes Marketing Group for the commendable service we received (and still do) from Realtor John Robinson: Personable, punctual and always professional. When you are dealing from a distance, it is reassuring to know you have a dependable individual on the spot on the other end of the line. Thank you for the opportunity to express our gratitude in this way. Best wishes!

To Dunes Marketing Group,

This to tell you of the very satisfying experience we had with your representative, Dot Holly. Dot made it a point to understand our needs for a home, and then showed us various possibilities, one of which we bought. We were especially impressed with Dot's knowledge, and experience. We had great confidence in her throughout the entire process. She was always at the ready, and even did much of the necessary work while on vacation. Based on our experience with Dot we would recommend her to any prospective real estate client. She is a pro and a pleasure!

- Allison Dwyer - Hilton Head

Glenn and Jane - Margaret and I have not quite settled in yet, but we are getting there, and we couldn't have done it without you and Jane. Thanks for your advice, patience, and coaching.  One of the things that really helped us through this, I believe was the communication that took place between you, the seller's realtor and Margaret and me. Without the extent of you guy’s involvement, this deal could have collapsed several times. We are glad that it didn't.  Thanks again and rest assured that we will recommend you guys to anyone that we know who needs a realtor.

It is our pleasure to offer our comments on the service and integrity of one of your agents, John Robinson. We were introduced to JR in March of this year at which time we expressed to him our interest in buying a second home on Hilton Head Island. After gathering all of the essential details as to the style, approximate location and our price range, JR went to work immediately on our behalf, and sent us pictures and details of available properties that he thought would interest us. After narrowing our choices among those listings that he sent, we scheduled a weekend trip to Hilton Head in May. Knowing that our visit would be brief, JR was exceptionally well prepared to show our family several homes and condos that weekend. As we toured these properties, JR was able to further assess our primary home interest, and this experienced insight further helped him--and us--to further narrow our choices. Over the course of those three days, JR made what could have been an exhaustive experience a most enjoyable, pleasant and productive one. He demonstrated his kindness, patience, professionalism and integrity throughout our time together, and because of his considerable knowledge of the market, as well as the excellent relationships that he has developed with fellow realtors, mortgage lenders and closing attorneys, we not only found a home that we truly love, but we were also able to reach an agreement on the sale price and secure a mortgage lender who would provide us with a pre-qualification certification. All of this within the short three weekend days of our visit! With JR's assistance, we were able to close on our new Hilton Head home in June. Since that time, JR has remained in contact with us, periodically providing us with news of interest from the Island or just to say "Hello". This speaks volumes of his character and of the genuineness of his interest in us. Without reservation, we would not hesitate to give our full endorsement of John Robinson, nor would we hesitate to call upon him again for any of our future real estate needs. He is dependable, hard working, highly knowledgeable of his business and he has developed excellent business relations with other key individuals that became considerably helpful to us in our home purchase.

Over the past several months we have had the opportunity of working with Dan and Debbie Lowman of The Lowman Team. First, they sold our home in Belfair, and then they helped us find a condo to purchase.In both instances we can't say enough how well, and professionally, they helped us through this process. They always communicated with us as to how things were going, and what they were doing to market our home, and also purchasing the condo we are living in today. Our experience with Dan and Debbie was fantastic!!! If we were ever to look at some other real estate in the future we would only look to them for their help and advice. They are well known in the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton area...and very much respected.

- Jim and Pat Clifford - Lake Mills, Wisconsin
Mary Clark, Thanks so much for your help in the recent sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home in Palmetto Dunes. Your experience and knowledge, especially of the Palmetto Dunes area, was a decided factor in the choice of our home. Because our main residence is out of state, your list of real estate attorneys, home inspectors, and eventually renovation contractors, was a great help in expediting the transaction(s). You coordinated everything with integrity and professionalism. It has been our pleasure to work with you.

- John & Lana Jersen - New York
My husband and I have been vacationing on the island for 23 years and have always planned on owning property on HHI. Susan made that possible for us, sooner than we expected. She researched the possibilities for us and walked us through each step with courtesy and professionalism. Her energy and expertise made navigating the home buying process less daunting. She was and still is available via email, text and phone. We have become such good friends through this process! If you are considering property on the island, we highly recommend contacting Susan. You won't be disappointed!

I was looking for a condo in Bluffton SC. I found one on the internet that was just what I was looking for. I sent an email to the realtor I had been working with and got no response. I went on the Dune Marketing website, found the condo and sent an e-mail. My e-mail went to Stacha. Stacha immediately called me and I told her the condo I was looking at. Within one hour Stacha had gone to see the condo and reported back to me what she saw. I put an offer in on the condo and Stacha walked me through every step of the process. As I was doing this entire process on-line and from the state of Ohio, Stacha was by far the best realtor I have ever worked with in the Bluffton South Carolina area, and I have worked with several. She is a diamond in the rough.

Marybeth recently assisted my wife and I as we purchased a second home on the island. Now I have to say that I write books on productivity, customer service and sales. Before I begin my next one I'm going to spend time interviewing Marybeth given our stellar experience during the process. Marybeth takes her job very seriously and is totally customer focused as she serves as the buyer's advisor and consultant. Her knowledge of Hilton Head Island is truly impressive.

Given her good advice, attention to detail and just plain professionalism I would definitely recommend that you work with Marybeth Buonaiuto if you are planning on buying or selling property in the lowcountry.

- Phil Perkins
My wife and I first met Ken over 20 years ago. When we came to Hilton Head on vacation, Ken always had time to show us condos for sale even though we were not yet able to buy. Always knew the current market. When we finally were able to buy we called Ken about a listing. He and his team went straight to work and gathered all the necessary info. It was a short sale so the sale took a little longer than a normal transaction but Ken kept the process moving and kept my wife and I regularly updated. From start to finish he was a consummate professional. He has also helped after the sale in helping us choose various services such as contractors to do remodeling work. I will select Ken on any transactions for real estate on Hilton Head. I would also give a big Shout Out to CJ, Ken's assistant, who is fantastic.

I am currently working with MaryBeth to close on a villa on Hilton Head Island. While the complexity of getting all the required documentation for the bank could be a nightmare, she has made the process much less daunting. There are so many players! As a matter of fact, MaryBeth is almost like a RingMaster in a circus. Sometimes you feel like you're about to get trampled by one of the elephants, and MaryBeth somehow backs them off. Yes, the closing process is a circus. She's professional and yet endearing. Everyone needs a MaryBeth in their ring!

Renee Rezzetano is a top-notch professional. When I contacted her in mid-January, my schedule was fairly aggressive. My goal was to purchase the perfect property in Hilton Head before the vacation season started in early April. The caveat was that I live in Atlanta, GA, two hundred and fifty miles away. Prior to contacting Renee, I had spent many hours wading through internet pages trying the "do it myself" method. I was totally frustrated. After contacting Renee, I was both pleased and amazed. Renee spent some time with me on the telephone in order to understand my goals. With that accomplished, she began a process that allowed me to make an offer on a property in less than two weeks after our conversation.

Renee gave me access to her website where I was able to define my search precisely. I began to focus on Hilton Head Island Beach & Tennis Resort. Renee provided every single piece of information that would allow me to make the right decision. She emailed floor plans, regime information, a current list of recently sold properties, a list of what was currently on the market, including pricing. She even took pictures that she sent via email. She became my eyes; she listened to my heart. I asked many questions and solicited many opinions but finally I had to come to see for myself. Renee spent an afternoon with me reviewing my "short list." As I left to return home, I was equipped with all that I needed to make an offer. The rest is history. I made an offer in February and closed on a property in early March, all in about two months time. It was a whirlwind adventure but because of Renee, I have no doubts that my decision was a solid one.

Renee is truly a joy to work with. I offer many thanks to her for her "outstanding" service.

My wife and I are grateful that friends referred us to our Realtors, Dan and Debbie Lowman of Dunes Marketing Group. They were always available which was especially important as this was a relocation from another state. Dan and Debbie provided us with many options to connect, kept us informed, knowing that we could reach them at any time. Since closing they have still here for us while we settled into our new home. The Lowman’s helped us make an unpressured, informed decision about purchasing, and thanks to their extensive knowledge of the Hilton Head and Bluffton area markets, we were able to quickly narrow our choice of communities. The evening prior to closing, Debbie and Dan quickly helped us resolve a wire transfer delay, saving us travel time, angst, and money. Our closing went smoothly thanks to their extensive business contacts within the community and their willingness to help us out with limited options available to us personally. Thanks to their sound market knowledge, we have found our new home, in a great community. It is without any reservation that we recommend Dan and Debbie Lowman when you are looking to move into this region. They truly are full-service Realtors.

My wife and I had been looking for a home and had little luck finding something new in our price range. By chance we had meet -up with Marybeth and she was able to immediately go thru what we wanted and what we were looking to spend. Within a few hours we were looking at properties and found what  we were hoping for and within a week we had a new home on deposit. If you are looking for a fun, energetic and honest Lady she's the one.

- Ed DiCamillo

Glenn and Jane’s consistent hard work, professionalism, and expertise enabled us to sell our villa in Shelter Cove.  Their patience and positive attitude was evident throughout the entire process.  They were readily available whenever we had questions or concerns, whether it be a phone call or checking something out for us at the condo.  They marketed our property well and on a consistent basis.  We appreciate all that they did for us during this experience.

- Betsey and Rick Novosel

We can't guarantee that Stacha will sell YOUR home in a day, but she did ours! That's right within 1 hour of putting the listing on the website we had an offer and within 24 hours a contract. Now that's service! Seriously, if you want someone who will work hard for you she is the professional you want. We contacted Stacha before we were ready to list and she told us exactly what to expect. Obviously, she exceeded those expectations! She is honest, knowledgeable, and completely professional and if looking to purchase property in the Hilton Head area again she will be our go-to-agent. We think anyone choosing Stacha Schiller-Stinson will be making a good choice.

- Karlene and Steven Thompson

For anyone interested in purchasing or selling property on Hilton Head Island or in nearby Bluffton or Daufuskie Island, I highly recommend John Robinson of Dunes Marketing Group. John made the entire process of purchasing a villa from out of state a very easy endeavor. In order to make the process run smoothly, it takes lots of hard work and time to gather the appropriate contacts such as a reliable attorney, a reputable home inspector, and a list of hardworking lenders. Because of John Robinson's hard work on my behalf, I feel that John is a real friend on the Island.

Thanks so much for everything JR!!

- Bill Rublee - Bethesda, MD

It’s been over three years since my wife and I purchased a condo on Hilton Head Island located in Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort with the help of our Realtor®, John Robinson.  We were so impressed with the way John conducted business for us -- in the past, when we've purchased a home, the Realtor® gave us some business cards and then disappeared after the closing. But not John Robinson!  Each time we've had a question, needed a resource, had an issue, John was there for us!   All I had to do was email or message him over the years and John's response was always the same:  "how can I help you?"  It was as if we just met.  Aside from always being there for us, Realtor® John Robinson was there for all of those who had to be evacuated from Hilton Head Island during the hurricane of 2016.  John Robinson was instrumental in doing everything he could in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, coordinating resources, assisting residents, and keeping in touch with all of us who live out of state through Facebook & emails. He didn’t do this for a photo opportunity, he did this because this is the type of person he is.  John Robinson lives on the island and is committed to the quality of life for all of us.  So, if you are looking for a Hilton Head Island Realtor® with integrity, a moral compass, and won't hand you a stack of cards after the sale and disappear, we highly recommend Realtor® John Robinson with Dunes Real Estate on Hilton Head Island!

Trish Weaver, Thanks so much for making our house hunting and purchase so effortless. We are looking forward to being a part of Hilton Head Plantation and having you as a neighbor. You've helped make our dream come true.

- Rich & Dia Sunderlin - Danville, PA
This is to formally thank Glenn and Jane Handley of Dunes Marketing Group for the outstanding job they did in selling our house recently. We had the house on the market for almost two years (with two different large area real estate firms) and got very few "lookers" and not even one offer (even after we reduced the price by over $100,000). Then Glenn and Jane really went to work! They put together a virtual tour of the house for their web site, conducted several advertised open house events and pitched in several other ways. Within months they found a buyer and helped us close a gap between the original offer and our asking price. They also were extremely helpful in making sure that all of the closing elements went smoothly. We only wish we had hired Glenn and Jane at the outset; by doing so we would be approximately $100,000 better off! Thanks again Handley's!

- Larry and Marsha Harris - South Carolina
It occurred to me that I have never taken the time to tell you just how much Grace and I appreciate Erline Smith. Erline miraculously guided me through my first 1031 an amiable conclusion. I've got to tell you that it was more than her sweet southern charm working to get that deal done. She is a dear friend and an extraordinary Realtor. You're lucky to have her on your team. We're looking forward to our next purchase when we actually become "snow birds" and are able to spend out winter months there. (Letter to Bill Baldwin)

- - Mike & Grace Shirey - Silver Springs, MD
Doug Eck, Thank you for your patience with us in finding the perfect family friendly condo. We truly appreciate all the hard work you put in to helping us locate, research and purchase our condo on Hilton Head. Our family will enjoy the condo for years to come. Your knowledge of the Island and professionalism should be commended. You can definitely count on our recommendations for your services to our family and friends...

- Jim & Michele Varga - Uniontown, OH
Brenda Smith, Thanks for working with us to find the right condo at the right price and keeping us focused on what was most important to us. Sally and I moved seven times during my career with the US Government. We have had good and bad experiences in buying real estate. This Buying experience was one of the best, if not THE BEST, we've ever had. We look forward to joining you as part time residents of HHI

- Mike K. - West Virginia

Absolutely the best! Several properties purchased on the island, each time with Marybeth and we would not consider anyone else. After vacationing on Hilton Head for years, time came for us to buy and we are so thankful we meet Marybeth. This was back in 2002 when we purchased our first  property. We have bought and sold several times now on the island each time calling on the expertise, guidance and sincere help Marybeth provides.

Marybeth is very knowledgeable about the latest trends in the HH real estate market, is well connected with the resources associated with real estate transactions (key for someone buying or selling on island) and has consistently provided us a level a service that is top notch.

For a genuine, caring agent who wants the best for you, we highly recommend Marybeth.

- Jim & Marlene Sidon
If you are searching for a realty team that is not only knowledgeable about the area & true professionals in every sense of the word, but also caring, honest, available and willing to go the extra mile to accommodate their clients, then I highly recommend Glenn and Jane Handley. I owned two real estate offices and managed several others over a 29 year period in NJ and I have seldom run across a team like the Handley's. They make buying and selling your property a pleasure instead of a hassle. Call them and I know you won't be disappointed!

- Carol Moorehead - Hilton Head Island, SC

In December 2011, we purchased a villa in Inverness Village in Palmetto Dunes on Hilton Head Island, SC. Our agent was Susan Falco.

My wife and I had followed up on a flier she had picked up outside the Shelter Cove office of Dunes Marketing Group. Susan was in the office when we returned to speak to an agent.

As background, we have been regular visitors to Hilton Head for over 20 years and finally decided in late 2011 to seriously look into buying. At that time, it was still very much a buyer's market. In a very efficient and professional way, Susan explained the local market to us and analyzed our specific requirements. We indicated that we would be happy with a "fixer-upper" provided the price and location were right. We had experience with many plantations on HHI over the years, however, we had never stayed in Palmetto Dunes Resort. Susan took us to many villas and condos over a one week period in several HHI plantations, before we eventually decided to make an offer on the villa we ultimately purchased.

In addition to being very professional and knowledgeable, Susan has a pleasant personality which made the entire (potentially frustrating) process fairly straight forward. Acting on our behalf, she tactfully negotiated the purchase price to a level we were comfortable with. She was also extremely helpful in directing us to local sources of mortgage finance, insurance, and experienced legal advice. Immediately after the sale, she was also particularly helpful in providing the names of local contractors and tradesmen, some of whom we eventually hired to help with the renovations at our villa. These contacts proved to be solid.

We had gone through the process of buying and selling four homes before this Hilton Head purchase, so we were prepared for the usual challenges along the way. That said, this was by far the most straight forward transaction of any we had previously gone through. We attribute this primarily to Susan Falco's knowledge of the local market and service providers, her calm demeanor throughout, and her effective, efficient business sense. We would unhesitatingly refer friends and family to Susan should they be interested in purchasing real estate on Hitlon Head Island.

We are satisfied customers and we love our villa.

- Mark & Nancy Wilson - Fairfax Station, VA
Susan is very knowledgeable about Hilton Head Island, which was very beneficial to us coming from another state. We can't say enough about how Susan goes above and beyond in servicing her clients. She was and continues to be a pleasure to work with.

- Sue & Joe Fisher - Bradley Beach, Hilton Head Island, SC
Our reason for choosing John Robinson as our Realtor just happened to be the "luck of the draw." We decided to do some looking around while we were in Hilton Head and walked into Dunes Marketing Group without an appointment. Fortunately, as far as I am concerned, we could not have gotten a better Realtor if we had spent days researching the subject. We went in with the idea of just getting a feel for what was available in Palmetto Dunes. John, within minutes, had a number of villas ready for us to view. He immediately could tell what direction he needed to steer us. My husband and I are polar opposites and yet John was very good at keeping us both engaged in conversation and entertained. I think his ability to interact with all types of personalities and make them feel comfortable and not pressured impressed me the most about John. There is no "If" I were to recommend a friend to John. I will definitely recommend him. He is very easy to work with, knows the Island well, can get a quick read on what his clients are looking for - often even before they're really sure what they want. He keeps you informed of new listings and changes without making you feel as though you are on a telemarketer's list. We WILL be doing business with john.

- Jan & John Gantzhor - Cincinnati, OH
Jane & Glenn Handley were there for us every step of the way during the purchase of our vacation home! They took the time to get to know us and helped us get the home we were looking for. Being a thousand miles away from our condo in Hilton Head was stressful, but we could always count on Jane or Glenn to make contact with us at least once a week to give us an update of how things were progressing. They both would go out of their way to answer or get answers to any questions we had whether it was in their realm of responsibilities or not. We truly appreciate everything they did for us to help our purchase go as smoothly as possible and would not hesitate to contact them again for our next move. We not only think of them as highly professional business people, we also consider them our friends.

- Deb & Bill Tobia - Malta, NY
Stacha was perfect! We will be relocating, and she helped us find the perfect home (she showed us so many, and always kept the great smile on her face...even at the end of long days seeing many houses!) Her patience, kindness, friendliness and professionalism went way beyond!...from finding the house, up to closing...she was always there for us. We recommend Stacha very highly!

- Anne - New York

Hello John Robinson and Dunes Marketing Group:

Jan and I want to thank you for all you have done for us during the purchase of our condominium at Summer House. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor to help us through it. The time and effort you put toward us was much appreciated. The people and firms you suggested we use for closing and financing were top notch. You all did a great job for us, keeping us informed through out. We're looking forward to many years of fun and enjoyment at our second home on Hilton Head and have you to thank for helping us make our dream a reality!

- Rick & Jan Todd - Cincinnati, OH
To John Robinson: I had an appointment with my money manager today for my taxes and they were very impressed with the letter you sent me with the closing statement. They thought is was genius of you....because they saw it and saw your card, they would recommend people your way. Thanks for being so efficient! You're the best!

- Bonnie Hunt - Atlanta, GA

I found Stacha Schiller-Stinson on Zillow while doing some house hunting on my own. Finding and working with her was the greatest decision I have made in my house buying journey!
Stacha has been working with me for over 4 months now and buying a home in our price range has been challenging, but she never gave up on finding me a home. She is very professional, friendly, and is there for you every step of the way! In the end she kept me determined and positive when I was going to give up and ultimately got me into a great home!
I highly recommend working with her in your house buying process!

- Carla
Our recent home buying experience has been extremely stressful.  The seller's agent required unnecessary demands, timelines and contingencies.  Through this very stressful time, the one breath of fresh air was our realtor, Mary Amonitti.
   Mary was never afraid to ask more questions, dig a little deeper, and get us the information we needed.   Oftentimes the seller's agent promised information, missed deadlines, and failed to deliver.  Mary was always willing to call, get our questions answered, and provided information in a very timely fashion.
  We honestly were ready to pull out of this home purchase, but Mary answered our questions, reassured us, and ultimately got us to the closing table on time!

- Tanika L. Gonzales
The Handley's approach to island real estate sales is a unique and valuable advantage to their clients. The Handley 'difference' can be summed up in words that are absent in most markets today: caring, dependable, and knowledgeable. There is no match for their motivation and personal attention and we highly recommend them to anyone with interest in Hilton Head Island properties.

- Mike and Ginger McGinnis - SC
It was our incredible good fortune to find Jane and Glenn's website in our search for vacation property. From the moment we met them, they made us feel entirely at ease. Jane and Glenn possess all the outstanding characteristics that make a great realty team. Beyond that, they are such warm and friendly individuals. Jane and Glenn were completely prepared to work with us on short notice. We had very high expectations and they did not let us down. Their efficiency and diligence, coupled with their energy and patience, were so greatly appreciated. We recommend them with absolute confidence.

- Scot & Maria


Wow.  Where do we begin to say thank you for all you have done for us?  This has already been such a blessing to us.  We never expected a real estate transaction to go so quickly and so smoothly and we owe it all to you.  We know this is just the beginning but, wow, it has been such a pleasant experience.  We just wanted to say thank you.

See you soon!

- Laura & Michael Smolarski

Very helpful, hard working agent. A pleasure working with her. Knows her market area and how best to position property and pricing. Networked with fellow agents to find us a buyer in a slow market.

- Will & Eithne Gorman

Dear Trish Weaver,   THANK YOU!  The time you have given Jack & I in finding the right home is appreciated beyond words!  The best part of this experience was getting to know you better & Doug.  We look forward to seeing you two socially as well!


- Deborah
To Paul Daniels: My wife and I had dinner with Andrea and Mary on Sunday evening. We must have looked at 100 pictures that they took of the house and other things around Hlilton Head. They are thrilled with the way things turned out and were very complimentary of all your help.

- Chuck Winkleblack - Ames, IA
Jane and Glenn Handley have just guided us through a challenging purchase with lots of patience, hand-holding, reassurance, sympathy and friendship. They worked tirelessly to assist with not only finding a great listing but advising us at each step of the way. Their efforts were always very professional and thorough. We truly appreciated their common-sense approach through the entire process and really look forward to joining the Hilton Head community.

Trish Weaver led my husband and me through the process of doing a trans state move. We visited properties all over Bluffton.  She gave us a feel for all the different neighborhoods. She was so smart to take us in Sun City! I would have never picked it without her knowing that it was the perfect place for us. She helped us narrow down homes by web viewings so the time we had when visiting could be productive. We found the perfect home and it was all worked out remotely. I knew all would be fine with Trish leading the steps. We love our neighborhood and our new home. I still cannot believe we did it!  It was made so easy by Trish with her knowledge and skill.

- Nancy and Greg

This was the second house I purchased using Marybeth. On the first purchase, Marybeth did all of the work required and more to make it an easy transaction. The second purchase was a difficult short sale and Marybeth worked tirelessly for months until all parties involved executed the documents. On both transactions, Marybeth assisted every step of the way including the smallest details. I highly recommend her.

- Walter & Veronica Schaffner

                In Early 2011, my employer transferred my position from Beaufort to Charleston and I was forced to put my house up for sale.  The real estate market at that time was in a tailspin and I had no choice but to sell my house in short sale.  I had no idea what to do or how to do it.  In November of 2011, Susan Falco from DMG was assigned to my property located in Bluffton, SC.  The first thing I noticed about Susan was her determination and positive attitude.  She understood that I was going through a tough and confusing  situation.  She was able to explain the steps we needed to take to get to our ultimate goal of selling the property. 

            Susan was well aware of where the market stood when it came to pricing my house on the market.  After sitting on the market for 6 months with zero offers, Susan brought multiple offers in the first week.  She was not only actively showing the house to her potential buyers, she was networking with other agents inside and outside of her company to maximize my home’s visibility.  Within weeks, we had an accepted offer on the table.

            It was suggested by many to obtain a lawyer to negotiate with my lenders for the short sale of my home.  Susan quickly stepped up and took ownership of that responsibility.  She saved me thousands of dollars of attorney fees by taking lead on the negotiating process and she was relentless.  Her communication to myself, the lenders, and the potential buyers was impeccable.  I knew exactly what was going on at all times. 

            The lenders were very slow on approving the process and several contracts fell through because of it along the way.  Susan refused to let me down.   She called me up immediately, broke the news, and reminded me that selling in short sale is not a standard sale.  She told me as long as we stayed aggressive and positive, we would get it done.  In the several instances where the deal had fallen through, Susan had anticipated it happening and had the wherewithal to start contacting agents to let them know my property may be coming back on the market.  This allowed very little time to pass between new contracts and because of the relationships she had built with my lenders, we never had to start over from the beginning. 

            Susan’s professionalism and desire to satisfy her customers is why my house sold in May of 2013.  She never allowed me to have doubts about us accomplishing that goal.  Susan made me feel like family and treated me as I was her most important client.  I have no idea what the terrible outcome could have been for me, but thanks to Susan Falco, I never had to find out.  Susan is the depiction of going above and beyond and perfect customer service.  I was blessed to have her as my agent, my teammate, and ultimately my friend.

 Thank you Susan.

I love, love, love Susan Falco... In fact, I have bought not one, but two properties with Susan's help. As a healthcare professional, the real estate process was very foreign to me. Susan made sense of the "mumbo jumbo" and navigated the entire process.

I am happy to say that I am moving to Hilton Head Island very soon and could not have realized my dream without the lovely and highly competent professional, Susan Falco.

I know this house isn't on your list but I would like for you to look at it-- I think you will really  like it."  With these words Jackie Riggins introduced us to the home we love.  When we initiated our search for a home in the Hilton Head/ Bluffton area we were placed in contact with Jackie.  We provided her with our list of wants and needs and also showed her the list of homes we wanted to see.  With her knowledge and experience she was able to expand on our list and find us the home that we really wanted - exceeding all of our hopes.  As out of state buyers Jackie also assisted us in many other practical ways. She has been a valuable resource in regards to the Moss Creek community. She helped guide us through the loan process and also recommended an insurance agent and a real estate attorney who provided tremendous expertise throughout the process.  When we had any needs or questions Jackie was there to guide us in the right direction.  We can't imagine trying to go through this process without Jackie.  She exceeded our expectations in every category.  We recommend Jackie Riggins without reservation-- she will be a great help to you in the process of finding and buying your dream home.       

- Rob and Janice Crowder - Moss Creek
Trish Weaver had an uncanny ability to understand just what we were looking for. She found homes to show us that met our wants and needs as if she could read our minds. It took just over a day, to find just the right place. Since the sale, she's still been there with advice and information about renovations, repairs, and just plain island living. In other words, she became, not just our realtor, she's become a good friend.

- Ken & Ellen Jones - Hilton Head Island, SC

My wife and I were fortunate to meet Stacha at the Dune's real estate office at Moss Creek. Having stopped in to see if a realtor was available to give us a glimpse behind the gates of the plantation, we realized quickly we had found the perfect realtor for us! Fast forward one year, Stacha is helping us to negotiate and close on our next home. Stacha managed to make the entire process of looking at different homes, in different locations throughout the low country a pleasure! I would highly recommend her as a knowledgeable realtor who has your best interest and happiness in mind as you go through the buying process.

- Chuck and Fanoula

Patricia "Trish" Weaver,

Artie & I would like to thank you for all you did to help us sell our villa.  It was a pleasure to work with you. You always gave us good hints with all our decisions and yet left it up to us to decide things.  Hope to see you again when we visit Hilton Head.  

- Mil Lowe

My husband had the pleasure of working with Jeff while purchasing a Villa on Hilton Head Island this Fall. He was so much more than thorough in showing us what was available in the area, and provided us with the knowledge needed to compare what we saw. There was no pressure to purchase and when we did decide to make a purchase he handled everything for us as we are out of the state owners and not able to be in town for the closing. He is continuing to help us with with his expertise and knowledge as we get up to speed on renting the property we just purchased. His knowledge in all aspects of real-estate is very appreciated by us.

- Nancy Yoshida - North Dakota
I have vacationed on Hilton Head Island for over 20 years and have always wanted or dreamed about owning a villa or house on the Island. I purchased a time-share on the island about ten years ago and used it every year. The more I visited the Island, the more I fell in love with it. I had met John Robinson at a tennis tournament about 8 years ago and he told me he was a REALTOR on Hilton Head Island. I told him that one day I was going to contact him and eventually purchase a villa or house on the island. In June of 2009 my dream became a reality. I was on the island for a Special Olympics Tennis Tournament and called JR and he was ready to show me my options. John Robinson was very organized, did not pressure me at all and was so excited to show me what he had available. JR is not only a great agent, he is my friend. I had lots of questions for him and he always returned my phone calls and always gave me 110% of his energy each day. See...dreams do come true.......and I love my condo and love my real estate agent as well. Thanks JR

Patricia "Trish" Weaver,

So I’d just like to close with a BIG THANK YOU for all your efforts in marketing, showing, negotiating and closing our HHI house with a real sense of urgency that befits a seller’s agent and solid integrity every step of the way, even when the way was hit by a literal roadblock in the form of a tree across the lagoon the day before our scheduled closing!

- Bill & Mary Beth Milby
Jeanne and I have worked with Steve Plowden on both our first home on the Island and the one we enjoy today. Should we ever buy another, we will work with him again. Steve knows the island, knows its real estate market and knows how to make a deal happen. He and Lisa are also good people who make doing business a personal pleasure.

- John Rowe - Chicago, IL
Paul Daniels, on behalf of the Lowes and the Rotkows, we want to thank you for all of your help in acquiring the condo. During my 30 years of law practice, I have dealt with many real estate brokers and agents, but none better than you. Aside from your obvious expertise and professionalism, you have been a real pleasure to work with. We are all fortunate to have had you in our corner.

- Alan Lowe - Savannah, GA
We were so pleased with the excellent service and knowledge that Dan and Debbie Lowman provided us when we bought our home on Hilton Head Island, that we purchased a second property the following year. Plus, Dan and Debbie never treated us as clients but as friends...and it has been such an enjoyable process buying our properties through trusted friends!

- Laura Stanbridge - Madrid, Spain

You are the best! It was our lucky day when we walked into Dunes Marketing and were introduced to Glenn & Jane Handley. ( The Handley Team).  They were both "top notch" in finding us the right fit for our needs.  It was our first experience moving and buying property out of state & they could not have been more patient with our many questions and concerns.  They made themselves available whenever we needed them.  Thank you from two very happy clients.  

- Kevin & Bobbi Murphy

My wife and I spent a few days with Marybeth this Summer looking at places on the island. She Knows the island well and gave great advice. No pressure realtor. Would highly recommend her.
