    Structured to Serve

    In 1992, just a year out of Denison University, Chip followed the popular Ohio-to-Hilton Head Island route and jumped off the corporate ladder, taking a chance at something more entrepreneurial in one of the most special places in the United States - South Carolina’s beautiful Lowcountry.

    After four years in villa/association property management, Chip got his bearings in the real estate market and secured his Broker’s license in 1996, spending the next six years as a top producing agent in the market with Sea Pines Real Estate Company. In 2002, he launched his own independent real estate brokerage firm - Collins Group Realty. In 2020, celebrating 18 successful years in business, CGR continues to be a top 10 producing firm in the Hilton Head Island and mainland marketplace, a No. 2 ranked team in South Carolina, and 240th in the U.S.

    Chip and his wife, Carrie, have called the Lowcountry home since 1992, having spent 27 of those years in Sea Pines Plantation. They recently purchased Chip’s parent’s home and now live in the area’s most historic residence overlooking the May River in Old Town Bluffton. They have two daughter, Martha Preston their eldest is a student at College of Charleston, and Sallie, attends The University of the South – Sewanee.

    Together, Chip and Carrie enjoy boating, home improvement projects and quality time with their girls any opportunity they can get. Chip has earned his stripes as an amateur triathlete, competing in local and regional events around the Southeast, including participation in the Ironman Florida and Ironman Louisville 140.6 mile events, as well as, back-to-back Boston Marathons.

    As the owner, broker-in-charge and Hilton Head Island Listing Specialist of Collins Group Realty, Chip maintains a commitment to excellence throughout the Group and ensures the best experience we can offer our valued real estate clients.

    Thanks for the opportunity to earn your business!!!

    "We were recommended by a trusted friend and after speaking to Chip, we knew we had the right firm. Collins Group Realty is a true leader in the field. We felt they had our best interests in a difficult market and their ability to list, sell, broker and close a deal was an honest commitment."
