It’s time for spring cleaning.  Listed below are a few Hilton Head vendors that can help you get your property ready for season or ready for sale.  These vendors cover everything from cleaning, furnishing or remodeling.  If you are thinking about selling, buyers today no longer will even make an offer to buy a property that is in need of repair or updating, they simply move on to the next property for sale.

That said, in the past few weeks Jane and I have had the opportunity to work with some of our sellers updating their properties.  Along the way we have met some terrific service people that have made our properties sell!  One home sold in a matter of a few weeks after we removed the wall paper and repainted the interior.

Listed below are some of the service people and their contact information along with some of the jobs they have helped us complete.

Pressure Cleaning The Exterior of Your Home or TownHome
Pressure Washing is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to improve the appearance of your home.  I have my personal home pressure washed every spring because it makes my home look terrific after pollen season for about $350.00 for the entire home(prices vary).  To get a quote call Ted Brammer with Gentle Spray at (843)384-1553 or via email at

Wood Decks and Remodeling
The decks on homes that we sell often need replacement or repair.  We found our remodeler after we sold his home.  He can complete all areas of remodeling but he specializes in repair or rebuilding exterior decks and he also can hang flat screen televisions with no wires showing!  Contact Jack Lewis at AQS his email is or call him at (843)298-4227

Kitchen and Baths
We met this remodeler through another realtor on the Island.  Since than he has remodeled several kitchen and baths for us in villas that we offer for sale.  When you figure what it costs to complete this type of remodeling to get a property sold it is a deal.  Contact Jack Lewis at AQS his email is or call him at (843)298-4227.  We referred to this jack of all trades by another realtor as well.  Recently we had him repair a gate, repair some sliding doors, remove some old lumber in the garage and fix a gate post on a home we listed for sale.  He was both prompt and professional.
