Hurricane Matthew Update

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

On this beautiful sunny day it is amazing that almost a week ago Hurricane Matthew was becoming a reality. As was reported, on Friday and Saturday the storm came to the low country as a Category 2 comprised of strong winds and storm surge. We were very fortunate and most grateful that as a general comment we had minimal damage to our homes and our islands overall. However, we all will be very busy clearing tree and shrub debris from our properties.

Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island officials and emergency personnel deserve a great deal of credit for how they handled this situation with proactive precautionary measures taken and by excellent communication with the community every step of the way. Through their actions residents were permitted to safely return by midday Monday.

As we resume life and business today, know that we are here to assist you in any way, with any questions you may have. In the meantime, on behalf of all of us at the Kiawah Seabrook Group, we look forward to seeing you at the beach real soon!

Dunes Properties Running for the Turtles

Dunes Properties this past weekend sponsored the inaugural 5K Turtle Trek on Isle of Palms to help benefit the turtle hospital at the Charleston Aquarium. Even though located about 20-25 miles northeast as the turtle swims, Isle of Palms is still just as important a nesting beach to the turtles as the beaches we call our own here on Kiawah and Seabrook.

This event resonated with us at dunes properties given our involvement in selling real estate along the Charleston Coast, the same real estate the turtles call home. The Kiawah Seabrook group was well represented at the event with Karen Hilty and Joy Millar participating. They were also joined by Kristin Walker, one of our downtown sales associates, and Traci Magnus, our head of marketing.

This event is something Karen found very important as she actively participates in the Turtle Patrol here on our beaches on Kiawah and Seabrook. Karen had this to say after the event, “The race was a sell out, and our performance…well, let’s just say it was in keeping with the named beneficiary!!!!”
