Testimonials About DeBordieu

Troi: Thanks for your involvement in the recent purchase of our “dream” home in DeBordieu.  Both my wife Sherri and I grew up vacationing in South Carolina. As children, our parents trekked from Pittsburgh PA annually to Hilton Head Island. As young adults, we got engaged on Kiawah Island.  As young parents, we took our kids to both.  All of our best family and vacation memories are deeply rooted in South Carolina.

 Several years ago when our kids were pre-teens, we were fortunate that some friends lent us their DeBordieu home and we fell in love.  DeBordieu had all of the commensurate South Carolina attributes that we have always loved:  Beach, Bikes, Golf, Tennis, Boating, Wildlife, Swimming Pools etc. but added the security and sense of community that we (apparently) had been seeking.  Seven years later as our last child at home approaches his freshman year in college, we are proud to call DeBordieu our home-away-from-home.

Once we enter the DeBordieu entry circle then pass through the security gates, the weight of the world is left behind. Miles and miles of undeveloped conservation land lead to a well planned residential community built to maximize the enjoyment of the ocean and the Country Club while embracing the few who are lucky enough to call it home.

Your friendship AFTER the sale has been the most impressive and has proven to be more valuable than your knowledge of the housing market in DeBordieu.  As we settle into our 2nd home, your willingness to guide us to the trusted and well respected venue’s in the area such as restaurants, locally owned retail stores, dry cleaners, physicians,  and other service providers, has insured that we feel immediately part of our new community. ~ Gary Wilson, Pittsburg, PA


“What we love about DeBordieu is that we have found the perfect combination of a beach community, a private golf course community, and a nature preserve all within the comfort and security of a gated community.”  ~ John and Teresa Parker


“We have been coming to the Pawleys Island area since 1981 with life-long friends of ours who loved this area as much as we did.  In 1987, while shopping in downtown Chicago, my wife ran into a women wearing a “Litchfield by the Sea” sweatshirt, who told her that Edens and Avant had just purchased the DeBordieu property and were going to bring in Pete Dye to design a new 18 hole course!

When Myrna called me at work to relay the story, I immediately called my friend who was in D. C. on business and asked him to question his S. C. contacts to see if they could enlighten him about this
The next evening, he called and told me to wire him $5,ooo dollars… he was going to put a deposit on a lot with a spectacular view on DeBordieu’s 12th hole for me.

I did, and he did, and it is the lot on which we built our home in 1994. We have never been sorry. development.  That night he called and said he had good vibes about what he heard and was going to fly to Charleston after his work was completed, rent a car, and visit this DeBordieu site.

Of all the fine amenities here at DeBordieu, the Dye golf course, the North Inlet, wonderful tennis facility, 6 miles of pristine beach and the safe feeling of having the security gate;  these amenities are topped by the type of people who have selected this marvelous area known as DeBordieu to be their home!” ~ Al and Myrna McMahon
