HILTON HEAD ISLAND | SC Luxury Home 38 Spanish Pointe Drive

Sold prior to the auction

When a luxury home sits on the market for two years, then sells within weeks prior to the scheduled auction, you can bet our Sellers are thrilled.  We’ll let them take it from here:

“Elite Auctions is to “go-to” in the luxury real estate auction business.  Their marketing, advertising & PR took our Hilton Head Island home from having no offers, since listing the property, to an offer that was acceptable for my wife and I.  The broad outreach of their expert marketing ultimately discovered a cash buyer from out-of-state, created a clean contract and settled in a short time period. Elite Auctions goes above and beyond for their clients and I would highly recommend their team and services to anyone who is ready to move on from their luxury real estate.”  — Tom & Edie-A Neary, Sellers of Hilton Head Island estate.
