Lake Hartwell Real Estate News

No Turkeys Here

I am excited to be celebrating Thanksgiving this week with my extended family, and one lucky turkey will certainly be a part of that celebration.  But today, I want to take the opportunity to celebrate something else.   Over 600 of these weekly lake updates have gone out over the last 12 years.  I have the responsibility of coming up with a topic, but our small but powerful team, including Janet, our Client Services Manager, and my son Michael, our Buyer Specialist, are both integral in constructing, proofing and sending the note.  Because of the care our team takes with this note, our click-through rate is more than three times the industry average.   I am thankful for my team for their diligence, and if you have read this far, I am thankful to your for being a part of our success.   Let us know if there is anything we can do to make this note more meaningful to you.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Clemson Wins Again

Clemson football is following up its National Championship season with another great year, beating Florida State for their 9th win this season. But Clemson scored another huge win last week. Real estate developer and Clemson alum, Steve Mudge, announced that he and his partners will be developing a $30MM condominium development on the shores of Lake Hartwell with easy access to Clemson University. The complex will have hotel-like services allowing owners to easily rent their units to visitors and provide full service housekeeping on a daily basis. The 116 unit complex is planned to be complete in 2019. For more details, click here and we will send them along to you.

Warm it up

Things move a little more slowly at Lake Hartwell when the cooler temperatures arrive.  Some of the lakefront restaurants take a break for a few months before gearing up for the next season.  But 83 Degrees West in Lavonia, stays open through the season serving dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.  83 West is a New Orleans style grill, serving some of that cities favorites including shrimp and grits, po-boys and a great gumbo.  The atmosphere is warm and relaxing and they frequently have live music on the patio of weather permits.  We hope to see you there, and make sure to save some time to let us help you find your spot on the lake.
