Dave has surrounded himself with the leading experts in the field and is committed to continuing education so that he can always ensure he's offering the best advice and information for today's market.

Debbie Cromer
Century 21 Properties Plus
About Debbie

Many agents think their most important job is satisfying the customer. I believe that satisfying the customer is simply the MINIMUM requirement for staying in business. I work constantly to improve my systems, processes and services to go well beyond the standard level of service provided by most agents. I do more than sell houses. I solve problems. I create solutions. I connect the dots. I am the space between where you are and where you are going. I fully appreciate the emotional aspects involved during the purchase and/or sale of your property, and respect the confidential nature of the information you share with me. My professional reputation relies on discretion. I am worthy of your trust. I am committed to providing you with a level of service that is deserving of my referral to your family, friends, and colleagues. I want you to be so pleased with my representation of your real estate needs, that I will earn your business again in the future. Your real estate needs, objectives, and concerns are my top priority.

Holly Hamilton
Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's International Realty
About Holly

Holly Hamilton was born and raised in Rocky Mount, North Carolina to an eutrepeneurial family. She grew up discussing business around the dinner table and started several successful companies in her teens and early twenties. While attending Wesleyan University, Holly began a botanical import business selling exotic orchids sourced in Hawaii. Later in college, she developed and ran a successful drapery business. Holly's education continued after Wesleyan, when she enrolled in Regent University School of Law, and gained her Juris Doctorate, as well as an L.L.M. in International Law and Taxation. She is currently admitted to both the Virginia and North Bars. Holly's legal training couples perfectly with her luxury real estate career, as she is able to advocate for her clients from a legal and international perspective. No stranger to international travel, Holly has lived in Romania, Strasbourg, and has frequented the African continent for business, as well as traveling extensively in the U.S. She knew Charleston was the place to call home after she met her husband, Heyward Hamilton, a 12th generation Charlestonian. The two settled into a beautiful home on the lower peninsula, otherwise known as "South of Broad," and where she "fosters" a flock of wild Guinea Fowl in her garden. Holly is an active member of St. Michael's Episcopal Church, the Junior League, and has served on numerous boards, including The Harbor Club of Charleston. Her professional history is too long to mention here, but Holly's most impressive asset is her true passion for our area. She has experienced the welcoming spirit of Charlestonians, and delights in sharing that energy with her clients. Furthermore, she understands that a home is more than where you live. It is where you realize your best life. Holly understands her clients-- their lifestyles, their passions, and she works tirelessly to find the best home to suit each client's unique journey.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Kiawah Island?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Kiawah Island?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
