A Lifetime of Experience – Private Communities!

Most real estate clients don’t know how to buy resort or retirement real estate so we created a framework to help simplify the buying process in an

area clients don’t know or understand.


Buying a home or a homesite can be an overwhelming process, especially in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area. I believe there are over 100 communities to chose from! I market myself as an expert in the private community business. I have had over 30 years experience working for developers and clients in the private real estate community business!

When you work with me I can guide you through the maze of neighborhoods in this entire area. I am truly non biased when it comes to recommending a property for you. I can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way.

Here are some of the key areas that Lowcountry Dream Homes can help you with:

Getting pre-approved by a lender

By providing me with some basic information about your income, savings and debt, I can assist you in getting pre-approved by a reputable lender. Here at Charter One Realty we have access to many, many lenders. The lender will then go over your financing options, what monthly payment amount you can afford, and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs.

Choosing a home

For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. I can assist you in this process by offering objective information about each property you look at. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities, I can give you the professional advise that you need. In the case of private communities I can guide you through the entire process.

Making an offer

Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, I will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, I will then help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible.


Closing, can be a complicated process. In some areas the escrow or title company handles the closing process, while in other areas an attorney handles it. Regardless of where you’re buying, John Weber can help ensure that everything goes smoothly.
