Spring is here! Well, not technically, but it might as well be. Here we are late February and every day this week has been in the 70’s. Flowers are blooming (early) and it feels like summer is right around the corner. If you are reading this and experiencing the same as us here on the South Carolina Coast, leave your office immediately, grab a beach chair, and head outside.
Looking to make the Charleston Coast your home or vacation getaway? Feel free to contact me via phone, email, text, or however to explore options. My company has the area covered from Wild Dunes, the Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, Folly Beach and also Kiawah, Seabrook and Dewees’s Island.
Have a great weekend!

I thought I would share another photo take yesterday morning with my Phantom 4 Pro. This shot is facing toward the Isle of Palms Pier just before sunrise. Getting out of bed early doesn’t always come easy, but it’s always worth it.

I took a quick flight over the Isle of Palms this morning to catch a beautiful sunrise. The image below is looking back at oceanfront homes located on Ocean Blvd. and front beach on the Isle of Palms, SC. Prices for oceanfront homes currently range from $3,200,000 to $5,800,000.

One of my favorites spots for stress relief is Shem Creek Park in Mt. Pleasant, located off Coleman Blvd. The park offers a long boardwalk that extends to the end of the boat docks and offers breathtaking views of the Charleston Peninsula and Harbor. Along with your walk to the end, you will see lots of Lowcountry wildlife, birds, creeks, marsh, dolphins, shrimp boats, boats, paddle boarders, and those outside enjoying the beauty of the Charleston Coast. Not only all that, but it is one of the best spots in all of Mt. Pleasant to catch an amazing sunset. After you catch the sunset, you are within a stone throw to several bars and restaurants for a cool evening cocktail and a bite to eat from the day’s local catch.
The area offers a great way of living and there are many nearby options including homes and condos.

Intracoastal Waterway – Isle of Palms
It has probably been a year since I first started thinking about purchasing a quadcopter (drone geeks say don’t call it a drone). Having one has its benefits for someone like me who is not only a Realtor but also a photographer. It allows me to get aerial photos not only for my on listings but also for other agents listings and vacation rentals. Not only that, as a seasoned fine art photographer, I am now able to capture different perspectives/views from some of the same areas I have been photographing by land for years.

Now, the initial learning process hasn’t been smooth as butter. I received in the mail 2 months ago the new DJI Phantom 4 Pro with the improved 20MP mechanical shutter that allows me to control things like shutter speed and aperture. Getting started and learning how to fly wasn’t so difficult, but the technical side of using the DJI app and issues the arise has been a bit frustrating, as someone who is not a tech geek and therefore having to learn on the go. As a matter of fact, I am on my second DJI P4P since my first one crapped out. The good news is that after a 3 week (seemed longer) wait, DJI in California sent me back a brand new one, that has its quirks as well.
Old Village – Mt. Pleasant
To be clear, I have no regrets on buying it and like I mentioned above, it is going to have its benefits. The thing is addictive, fun and scary at the same time. For now, I have to continue to learn and pass my 107 FAA exam to be able to fly it commercially (for profit). Until then hobby away!
I leave you with some photos of mine from the Old Village Mt. Pleasant and the Isle of Palms.
