"What a great experience! Howard and the team at Collins Group Realty made this purchase run as smoothly as it could, despite a couple of hiccups along the way. What impressed us most was Howard’s ability to listen to what we were seeking and adjust his advice accordingly. Even up to the last moment, Howard remained flexible and responsive, resulting in our purchase of a beautiful townhome in Shipyard. We would recommend Collins Group Realty and specifically Howard to anyone we know who decides to look for real estate on Hilton Head."
