If you, or someone you know, are considering buying or selling real estate, I'd love the opportunity to interview for the job as Your REALTOR®!

Lorraine & Howard Waymont - Upon realizing another move was on the horizon I quickly searched the internet as always for realtors in that area. Lots of big realty companies and a few smaller ones. I probably signed up to every site but within about 2 hours of my doing so one of the smaller businesses in Hilton Head called me personally.

Then I found out that the company - Julie Toon Pawley Real Estate, is run by a lady who married an English man - we are from England also so this was a real green light - things felt right from the start.

After each of our visits to the area she was immediately back in contact via email constantly which although being a distance away made us feel we weren't out of mind.

I have to say from start to finish Julie and Bernie have been all of the following efficient, prompt, have communicated with us constantly, extremely patient : and on the ball with every property we wanted to view…offer on…pull out from…etc., we gave them some headaches but they remained as efficient from start to finish. They held our hands through the closing and even afterward their care and friendship has shown.

I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to move to the area, they work as a team and each have a role to play all of which comes into the picture throughout. Go Toon Pawley!!!
Thank you!
Lorraine & Howard Waymont

Craig & Kerry Smelser - New Hampshire - Well it is hard to believe we don't own a place on HHI anymore. A bit melancholy, but was the right thing for us given where we are in our lives. We will be back though!
Julie - you and your team are the best team of folks we have ever worked with. Thank you for handling EVERYTHING with not only competence, but with the care and attention that we would apply ourselves. You not only make a great team - but have come to be family friends. Thanks again - and please keep me on your distribution lists...
Craig and Maribeth Collins; Delmar, New York- Thank you so much Julie and Bernie. Julie; all that you and your team do provide an iron-clad case for working with a top-notch Realtor. You've been the key in helping us establish and maintain our most enjoyable and profitable investment ever. You and Bernie are always there offering ongoing consultation. From finding the right property, establishing a realistic cash-flow plan, and providing the ever-important and invaluable ongoing support after the purchase. You're simply the best! Our sincere thanks to you all.
Mark and Pat Cannon - Delaware - My wife and I have been vacationing in Hilton Head for fifteen years and decided we would purchase a vacation home. In order to educate ourselves to the real estate market in Hilton Head, we put out several requests to realtors, with the premise that we would not be ready until 2005. Within one week we received a very professional information packet from Julie Toon Pawley Real Estate Broker, Inc. We then decided to spend a maximum of one day looking at properties in July 2004. At our initial meeting with Julie and Bernie, they intently listened to all our requests and limitations. As fate would have it, we found a home that met all of our "wishes" and that is when the team went to work. We are the original owners of our primary residence so we inundated Julie with questions, many with concerns about our being 12 hours from the island. They immediately became our liaisons to the island, with recommendations for contractors, inspectors, lawyers, mortgage brokers, insurance agents, etc. Every recommendation was as professional as Julie and her company. Of course we had our stumbling blocks, but the realtor team worked it all out. We are highly pleased with our purchase and the entire process by which we achieved this goal. The relationship also did not end at closing; we continued to receive real estate data as well as weather updates from Julie

I work in a client service oriented business so I hold others accountable to the same five star standards I give my clients. Julie, and Bernie offer this same high level standard, one I believe difficult to meet given today's popular real estate market.

Dominick & AnnMarie Buglione, Long Island, NY ...Our first real estate venture away from home was made possible with the expertise of Julie Toon Pawley and her associates. Her knowledge of the island, expertise in real estate and her warm reception gave us all the information we needed to decide that Hilton Head Island will be the stepping stone for us as we enter a new chapter in our lives. Julie coordinated the transaction from start to finish. She communicated with us on everything and was always available for all of our question and concerns.
We would recommend to anyone interested in this beautiful island to contact Julie.
Bruce and Cheryl Elder of St. Louis, MO writes..."Julie Toon Pawley Real Estate Company has meant the world for us. They put us into some nice investment properties, managed them very well, and then sold them when we were ready to move into other investments. They treat your property and your money as if it were their own. They are extremely ethical, knowledgable, hard working, and kind. I have never considered using another broker on the island".
C. Smelser of NH writes....."I have bought and sold personal use real estate many times over the years. In my experience buying a primary or secondary home is more than just a business transaction - it requires an agent who can represent your wants and needs during the process, requiring them to communicate almost constantly before, during and after the actual transaction. Julie Toon Pawley and her team were by far the most responsive and communicative agency I ever worked with. We communicated often, sometimes many times a day. Questions were answered and action requests acknowledged often within minutes, versus the days or sometimes weeks I had been used to in other, similar situations. This level of service not only proved comforting, but crucial - as my purchase was made "long distance", making me even more dependent on effective communications during the process. Not only did we buy a great property at a great price (thanks to Julie and her team), but we developed a friendship during the process. As her email tagline says, "Expect the best" - I did - and am pleased to say - Julie more than met my expectations!"

Gail and Jerry Ward -Conyers GA..."Julie made the experience of purchasing our Bluffton home one of our most enjoyable business transactions. She made it a pleasure by her extensive knowledge of the South Carolina Real Estate laws and of the local housing market. We had heard all the horror stories of trying to purchase property out-of-state, especially when your time is limited. But Julie is one-of-a-kind, very professional, and has the remarkable ability to listen to her clients dreams and ideas and turn them into reality as quickly as possible. We saw this in action when Julie showed us approximately 15 homes in one day and we were able to purchase our lovely home in a wonderful neighborhood. She is the only real estate professional we would ever consider recommending to our family or friends".
J and E Liene from NJ ...."Julie, We cannot thank you enough for all you have done for us. You went above and beyond what a Realtor would normally do. You and Bernie truly are the nicest people we ever met. We pray God blesses you, your family and your business."
R and C Hangacsi of DE ...."How lucky that we hooked up with you via your website!… your expertise is substantial. You gained our trust very quickly. You all work very well together - it was really impressive. Everyone seems to kick in their piece and everything seemed to really hummmmmmm. Thanks for everything - you made our week as enjoyable as possible and made us forget about the rain (well, that last part is a bit of a lie!)"
C.Mueller of SC....."Thanks again for all of your help. It is so nice to have someone like you on our side that is actually reliable!! It means quite a bit to us. Thanks!!"
C. Chase of NY....."Dear Julie & Bernie, Just a quick card to say hello and THANKS for a job well done! We are very pleased and you guys did us well. My sincerest thanks! I'm spreading the word in NY for the BEST Broker in Hilton Head Island."

L. Rorer of HHI, SC.... "Dear Julie, Thank you so much for helping make my latest purchase of real estate on Hilton Head Island go so smoothly. Your 23 year history on the Island gave me many valuable advantages over working with the typical real estate sales office on the island-- they just don't have your great depth of knowledge. Everyone in your office is just terrific, the attention to detail and response was absolutely amazing. You're doing a wonderful job! Thank you so very much."
