The Island Life People & Community

List with Us

Nearly 10 times the success rate of our closest competitor!

No other real estate company invests in Kiawah Island like we do.

We reach property buyers by investing in both proven and innovative marketing. In the past three years alone, we’ve invested nearly $10 million in strategic marketing to attract homebuyers to Kiawah, and we invest in high-quality market research to make sure we’re putting our dollars where the most qualified buyers are.

Marketing Exclusively for Kiawah Island

Another way we differ from other real estate brokerages? More than 95% of our $10 million marketing investment is made on the national and global levels—and it’s focused 100% on Kiawah Island, not split between Kiawah, Seabrook, and Charleston.

The result? We represent nearly 10 times the number of buyers as the next highest real estate firm.

Our Guide to Marketing Your Property

Strategic Marketing

In Print

We leverage our relationships with national publications to place our sellers’ properties in front of readers of the Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine, Robb Report, and others. We promote Kiawah Island in eye-catching two-page spreads in Barron’s PENTA, Mansion Global, Garden & Gun, LINKS Magazine, American and United Airlines First Class magazines, Ivy League Alumni Magazines, including Yale, Harvard, Wharton Alumni, and many other high-end media.

Vacationers to our area—a key source of potential buyers—can view our premium ads, listings, and feature articles in the comfort of their hotel rooms in Discover Charleston hardbound guides, Kiawah’s own Legends magazine, and Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Connoisseur magazine.

All our ads list our website address, where your listing can quickly be found.

Your listing will also appear in the print edition of our Catalog of Properties, published and mailed to qualified potential buyers three times per year.

Our digital marketing is state-of-the-art. Just one example? Our Matterport camera takes prospective buyers through properties on our website, showing them off from every conceivable angle—even angles impossible to view in person. The result is stunningly, visually appealing.

Our reach in the digital world is as wide as our reach in print. For instance, our relationship with ListHub enables photos and details from our 400+ Kiawah listings to show on 700 popular real estate websites across the world, from and to Trulia and Zillow. We maintain an active online presence on the most popular social media sites as well, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest.

Our website—exclusive to Kiawah Island—plays a key role in the marketing of your property. In 2014, our market research found that 69% of Kiawah home buyers had used it when researching Kiawah: nearly 7 of every 10 homebuyers. It welcomes more than 500,000 visitors each year, who spend an above-average amount of time browsing it.

There were more than 200,000 individual property views on our website in the past year, and nearly that many property detail views on our partner sites.

We also promote new listings via email to our database of Kiawah homeowners and 15,000 real estate prospects. These emails perform exceptionally well, exceeding the average open and click-through rates for the real estate industry by a wide margin.

In Person

Many of our real estate sales executives have sold Kiawah real estate for years, even decades—often to multiple generations of the same families. Many live on Kiawah and know the Island like the backs of their hands. Trusted advisors to their neighbors and customers, they genuinely delight in introducing people from across the globe to the natural beauty of the Island and the pleasures of the Kiawah lifestyle, and they leverage their close relationships with homebuyers and each other to match homebuyers to the homes just right for them.

No one knows Kiawah Island real estate like they do.

Over the years we’ve maintained real estate offices wherever interested buyers will most naturally find us: just before the Kiawah main security gate, in Freshfields Village, at the Sanctuary Hotel, and most recently, in historic downtown Charleston. In addition to enjoying a warm conversation with our knowledgeable agents, guests can virtually tour the Island and view your listing on large flat screens at each of our locations.
