After many months of contemplation, my wife and I had finally decided to move our permanent home to Hilton Head Island. We were about to begin the search for a real estate agent when, by chance, we met Kathy Zimmermann at the Sea Pines Visitors Center. We could not have found a better agent if we had tried. Kathy immediately took action and skillfully led us through three months of house looking before finally locating just what we wanted. Kathy is professional, patient, knowledgeable, pleasant, and most importantly, knows her stuff. We would highly recommend Kathy Zimmermann to anyone in search of a home on Hilton Head Island.

Information for Buyers
We're glad that more people are becoming curious about Hilton Head Island real estate! It's an exciting and rewarding situation, with interesting older homes in good condition, new luxurious beach front properties, condominium and townhouse communities with an assortment of amenities, and well-planned family residences with lasting financial and utilitarian appeal.
Searching for a home
Despite (and perhaps because of) the great selections in homes in this area, buyers are having a difficult time zeroing in on the exact home or location that is uniquely appropriate for their needs.
Just remember: Browsing the listings for months is one way to search out the deals, but weighing the investment potential of each property can be difficult, and many homes for sale are never listed publicly.
The Home Buying Process
As you begin to think about buying a home, you're probably acutely aware that this is likely to be your greatest investment ever (short of children or a good marriage), and you might be wondering if there's anything you really need to know as you go into this process. This is where I come in with my in-depth knowledge of our real estate market, trends, pricing, and neighborhoods (we call them plantations). With my help, you can come out on top of a closing that might otherwise have pushed your retirement ahead a decade! This happens all the time to buyers, who are left reflecting on the relatively small commission that would have brought a Realtor into the process to help guide them.
