What We Do
Our program enables buyers that want to build a new home in the Bluffton, South Carolina area to achieve their goal.
Our program includes a team of qualified custom builders, architects, lenders and other professionals interested in providing new housing in various locations and/or “on your lot”. We "match" our customers with home sites, house plans, and our team members, while "holding their hands" all along the way, guiding them through the process of new home construction with efficiency and care. Our fees are paid by the builders; there is no cost to the consumer for our services.
Our program identifies available building sites in Bluffton suitable for Low Country Cottages that meet the Town of Bluffton Unified Development Ordinance requirements. The initial target market is Old Town Bluffton. In addition, we have identified other building sites in the Bluffton area. Our role is to facilitate arrival at the perfect solution.
LOCATION is especially important. We will help you explore all available choices based on what is of prime interest to you such as a well-planned community with lots of amenities, a serene property with water views and accessibility, an attractive relaxed community with a genuine “neighborhood” feeling or an “in-the-middle-of-everything” place convenient to restaurants, shopping, recreation, galleries, restaurants.
Our program is with you every step of the way!
