Bubba sold us our Sea Island home two years ago. He was always available to show us homes when we came in town and kept us updated on new properties. He answered every question and concern with a prompt and thorough response. My husband, children and I really enjoyed working with him!

We met Bubba in his office and he immediately put us at ease with his affable humor, easy charm, and genuine concern that we find the right vacation home for us. Having worked on a lot of real estate transactions in the past, the work with Bubba stands out. Bubba’s ability to establish a friendship and trust with us that he honestly had our interest at heart and wanted to see us in a good home situation on SSI was really remarkable, and Bubba was also a lot of fun to work with.

He was patient and helped explain the pros and cons of various areas in the island and gave us the inside scoop. When we made an offer on a home we really liked, he helped us with valuation comparables and made sure we were not overpaying. As newcomers, it was very important to understand from Bubba the various nuances and idiosyncrasies of the SSI market and different neighborhoods to have the confidence to make a well informed offer. Although our first offer was ultimately not accepted, we had no doubt that we made the right offer based on the market comps and it was very clear that Bubba was looking out for our interest first and foremost rather than have us overpay despite the fact that this put his commission at risk. This only reinforced our trust in him.
