◂ Back to Posts

As we make our way through the month of February and the season of love, it’s easy for us to reflect on why we love the Lowcountry so much. From the beautiful, breezy weather and the glorious beaches and marshes to the rich history and culture of the Holy City, Charleston is truly a remarkable place to live and visit. Follow along as we reflect on the top five reasons we love Charleston and pay homage to the magnificent city that has given us so much.

Rich History. Charleston is a city full of life and with life, comes history. From the beautiful historic homes of downtown Charleston with their elegant porches and oil lanterns to the quaint cobblestone streets, the history of Charleston is ever present. As one of the oldest real estate companies in Charleston, our history matters. We take great pride in helping generations of Lowcountry families buy and sell their homes, providing first-rate service. We love what we do and it shows in our service.

Captivating Culture. Charleston is made up of a diverse multitude of communities and traditions. From expansive museums to engaging visual and performing art centers, there truly is something for everyone. The greater Charleston community hosts a plethora of festivals every year, from the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition in February that brings in an impressive amount of visitors, to the highly anticipated Charleston Food + Wine Festival in March and the Spoleto Festival USA in May that celebrates visual art exhibits and more than 120 performances from opera to jazz music.

Fine Dining. Embark on a savory journey as you explore all of the restaurants that Charleston has to offer. With an abundance of choices and cultures represented through charming cuisine, it’s hard for us to pick a favorite. Whether you’re looking to step out of your comfort zone and try a new spot, or relish in the nostalgia of an old faithful, the opportunities are endless. If we have to name a few, our team highly recommends visiting FIG, Leon’s Oyster Shop, Chez Nous, Wild Olive, and Poe’s Tavern for their delicious food, excellent service and pleasant ambience.

Temperature and Climate. We all know and love the saying; location, location, location. For Charleston, the statement couldn’t hold anymore truth. From the salty marshes of the Lowcountry to the pristine beaches of Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, James Island and Kiawah Island, there are many ways to enjoy the mild temperature. With an annual high of 76, an annual low of 56, and 2,993 annual hours of sunshine, we argue that nothing beats the comfortable climate of Charleston.

Sense of Community. Southern Hospitality goes a long way here. Whether you’ve lived in Charleston your entire life or you’re relocating for a fresh start, the sense of community is energizing. From the epitome of southern living in downtown Charleston to the family friendly dynamic of Mount Pleasant and the award-winning community layout of Daniel Island, there truly is a neighborhood for every lifestyle.

As we look forward to a promising spring season here in Charleston, take advantage of all of the opportunities that this remarkable city has to offer. From the brilliant festivals to the exquisite dining, Charleston is a city like no other.
