“Today’s market is different than anything I’ve seen in my 20 years in real estate,” said Charter One agent Tammy Moody. “It’s exhausting, but I mean that in the best possible way. You have to be ready for pretty much anything, anytime of day or night.”
Moody speaks from experience. Long before she made her mark as one of the Lowcountry’s top real estate professionals, she was a fixture of Hilton Head Island’s hospitality and marketing scene. A 30-year resident, she and her husband Kent met, married, and have raised two children on the island.
“I’ve seen Hilton Head grow quite a bit since I first started coming to the island in the 1970s on vacations. Like a lot of people, I came here one summer and never left,” she said. “I can’t imagine living anywhere else; we are truly blessed to live this extraordinary lifestyle our island offers. I love sharing it with my clients and basically anyone who will listen.”
Moody’s extensive tenure as an islander built a significant knowledge base, but it is her background in hospitality and marketing that truly showcases her approach to real estate. Going above and beyond for each client, she has created what she refers to as the “Five-Star Experience” as part of her offerings as a Realtor.
Being Moody’s client means knowing that every aspect of your home will be considered, every possible area for improvement will be suggested, and everything humanly possible will be undertaken to get you the most money for your property in the least amount of time.
“When I’m listing a property, it’s more than just black and white. It’s more than just a list price,” Moody said. “You have to look at everything: is the home updated, will the owner stage and clean, what can they do to add curb appeal…. I’m not an agent who is just going to walk into a listing appointment and give you a price and that’s it. I am hands-on throughout the entire process.”
In a market like this, where inventory of available properties is at the lowest it’s been in decades, that five-star approach can make all the difference. “I recently listed a home that had been completely remodeled and staged perfectly to attract buyers. I knew it would photograph well and I could design a unique marketing plan which would appeal to multiple buyers. So, we listed it at the top of the market and set the bar,” Moody said. “We had multiple offers before it hit the public market.”
Even buyers competing against the other countless buyers who are driving this surge benefit from her steadfast attention to service. “Right now, I’m trying to search for properties that are not on the market or are coming onto the market soon. This gives my buyers a little time to get prepared for an offer. In today’s seller’s market, buyers need to present their best offer first if they want the property.”
Whether buying or selling, the bottom line is Tammy Moody will give you all of her 20 years of experience as a Realtor and the personalized attention her hospitality and marketing background engenders.
“My Southern roots and upbringing instilled the Golden Rule of treating others the way you want to be treated,” she said. “Offering this principle to my clients is something I pride myself on. Over 80 percent of my business is referrals or repeat clients. I don’t have a huge team, but I will make sure that you get great service. That is why my clients and friends refer to me as ‘Tammy Moody, Agent On Duty.’ I am always ready to work hard and help you achieve your real estate goals.”
