Get to know Betty and Neal:
The first time Neal and Betty Hambleton set foot on Hilton Head Island, they had a special feeling. Spellbound by the natural beauty and active lifestyle of the Lowcountry, they knew they would someday call this place "home." In 2000 that dream came true. Neal retired from his Rockville, MD law practice specializing in real estate and Betty retired from her position as a senior manager with the Federal Government.
The Hambletons' genuine passion for Hilton Head Island and the surrounding communities is just as strong today as when they first visited, many years ago, only now they are truly at home. Whether golfing, enjoying theatre rivaling "the big city," dining with friends or strolling the pristine beaches, they both agree that this is the life. "It's about living to your heart's content and finding time for the things you love-living a vibrant, yet relaxed life," said Betty.
For the past 13+ years as Realtors, Betty and Neal have enjoyed sharing their knowledge and experience with the unique communities of Hilton Head Island and Bluffton with buyers and sellers. Investing time in building relationships and understanding their buyers' real estate needs is key to finding the perfect property. And for sellers, a comprehensive and aggressive marketing plan along with strong negotiating skills has ensured that properties are sold in a timely, efficient manner and for the best price.
Neal and Betty want to share this serene, yet exciting lifestyle with you and your family. If you think you might enjoy life in the Lowcountry, now or in the future, they can help you find the best value for your needs. Whether retirement, relocation, second home, or investment, Neal and Betty are ready and able to help you realize your dream.
