Meet the Team
Skip Gilliam | Skip greatly enjoys the natural beauty and architecture of the Lowcountry here in Bluffton and feels fortunate enough to call it home. “The rivers and marshes have such an abundance of wildlife. It is just so relaxing and enjoyable to spend time around the water. I love low country architecture, homes with a great natural setting, massive live oak trees with Spanish moss and a wide front porch. My family and I found a community that just feels like home, I love having the opportunity to help others find a place that feels like home to them.”
