“I love to be of service to my team members, owners, clients and customers, so that I may share my excitement for real estate (and life) while helping others accomplish their goals.”


Kevin has a diverse background in multiple types of real estate from property management and development to sales and team building. Kevin is active in the Hilton Head and Bluffton civically and sponsors many local charities and organizations. He is a proud Rotarian and applies the Rotary 4-Way Test for all of his dealings in both business and his personal life. This means before starting a project or addressing an issue he asks: “Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?” If an idea or situation does not pass all four, Kevin will not participate. Kevin is available to his team members, owners and clients and welcomes the opportunity to be of service.
