"Stuart Rumph is the kind of person you can count on anytime of the day or week. Stuart has been our realtor for two purchases on Seabrook Island and in both cases, he went above and beyond the call of duty to provide us with exceptional service. In the first instance he took our call on Super Bowl Sunday and cleared his schedule for three days to show properties and ultimately close a deal for us. He was meticulous in pointing out potential assets and drawbacks and clearly explained the costs involved in owning property on Seabrook. In the second case, Stuart navigated a delicate situation between the sellers and us and ultimately found a solution conducive to both. He arranged for construction improvements to begin on our house the day after closing at a time when contractors were in very high demand. He even engaged his teenagers to help clear out items and debris the previous owners had left behind. Stuart is a great guy, and we absolutely recommend him without reservations." - RM and JWM

My brother, sister and I decided to get a market evaluation just to see what our vacation home we owned together would be valued at. Over the years my wife and I had been to several open houses on Seabrook and had met Stuart and the team from Seabrook Realty. Stuart, Patsy and Chip all came and did a thorough assessment asking the right questions. More importantly they wanted to understand the family history of our father’s legacy of owning properties on the island for over 40 years. A lot of emotion and memories and they all understood that.
Stuart was quick to get back to me with an assessment of what he thought the house could sell for. We decided to list the house and also wanted Stuart to find us another property to buy. Our current property was in an LLC which we had on the rental program for the last three years. Stuart suggested we do an 1031 exchange to minimize the capital gains tax. He introduced us to an attorney who had expertise in 1031 exchanges. We wanted someone that was well connected in the market and Stuart definitely delivered on that account.
Stuart was able to find us a property to buy in a market where multi- family properties were selling before they were officially listed. It was a complicated transaction because of the strict guidelines that come with 1031 exchanges. We were also purchasing a property that was under construction.
Stuart navigated us through that period encouraging us to stay the course and be patient and the right buyer would come along. Stuart was spot on and the right buyer came and we sold above asking price. That allowed us to move forward with the new purchase.
Overall I can’t say enough about what a huge asset Stuart and his team was to work with. We felt so well taken care of. We all enjoyed the strong relationship we built with Stuart. Strong relationships are an important part of what makes him so successful at what he does. It definitely worked for us in making what can typically be a very stressful transaction to something that was extremely successful and satisfying. - JR It has been been a pleaseure dealing with the Seabrook Island Real Estate team over our 20+ years on the island. Stuart is always conscientious, courteous, and professional, delivering a level of expertise and personal touch above and far beyond all expectations. Stuart’s lifelong connection and love of the lowcountry has endeared us to this magical place, and we constantly rely on his astute real estate advice. - MR & IR
