Prior to relocating to the South Carolina Lowcountry, Meg was as an Associate Broker with The Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate, the #1 real estate team in Maryland......

After coming to Hilton Head Island on vacations for the last 15 years, my husband and I finally decided to leave the cold, cold north and settle in the town of Bluffton, a town just over the bridge from Hilton Head Island. We both feel that moving to the Bluffton/Hilton Head area was the best decision we have ever made!! We found a slower paced atmosphere here but still feel that it is a great destination to work or to play. There are world-class golf courses, pristine beaches, tennis, shopping, fishing and great food, all in your own backyard.

As a Broker with Group DiNenna at Southern Lifestyle Properties, I have access to all of the up-to-date information on lots, builders, new and resale properties. When you are ready to leave the cold behind and see what my husband and I and many "northerners" have found in the Bluffton/Hilton Head Island area, please contact me and I will show you all of the amenities that make this area a coveted retreat.
