Foundation Realty Testimonials

We cannot begin to thank Bart Whiteman for all he has done in finding us the perfect second home.
After many years of his showing us just about every types of real estate on Hilton Head Island, he found us the perfect home at a great price. He certainly has his client's best interest at heart as was demonstrated with his patience and kindness towards us.

The help and he has given us after the closing and to this date 6 years later have gone way beyond the duties of a realtor. He has become a true friend. Anyone who has Bart for a realtor is a very fortunate individual. He certainly is the best there is.

We first purchased a vacation condominium on Hilton Head through Bart Whiteman in 1993. Over the years, we often talked about trading up and Bart would select a number of properties for us to consider. I am embarrassed to say this almost became a hobby. We spent so many Thanksgiving and Easter vacations
with Bart, he watched our daughter grow up. But, he never gave up on us and continued to alert us to real opportunity. In 2011, Bart found our new home. It is everything we dreamed of but nothing we would have selected without his guidance. The purchase went smoothly and Bart sold our condominium within a couple of months. Bart knows Hilton Head and he takes time to get to know his clients. He is honest, knowledgeable and kind. And, in our case, extremely patient.

On behalf of Maura and myself I would like to thank you for your help with purchasing our home in Sea Pines. We were impressed with your attentiveness and willingness to jump into the car and go look at places - resulting in a very quick purchase that really matched our needs. Also thanks for pulling together the price comparisons for us. They were helpful in negotiating a fair price - We look forward to working with you again when the opportunity arises.

We have lived in Ohio our entire lives and have always loved vacationing in South Carolina. We started searching online for a possible retirement home on HH, inquired about a couple properties, and were introduced to Charlie Schroeder. Charlie sent us several pages of homes of our interest, kept us informed of new properties as the were listed and also any status changes. We gave him a list of properties we were interested in and he helped us with any and all questions. He had contacts so that we were able to get 2nd opinions on the inspections, info for getting bank pre-approval, local utilities, and insurance contacts. Charlie is a sincere, honest person who definitely makes you feel comfortable. Thanks Charlie for all your help and guidance........and love your sweet ride!!

Charlie's professionalism and knowledge of Hilton Head and the surrounding area are second only to his dedication to finding the perfect property for us. He has not only met, but has far exceeded our expectations. Being from Pennsylvania and not knowing anyone on the Island, we needed a lot of help from Charlie beyond just purchasing our property. He was extremely helpful in providing us with the contacts and resources necessary to establish and maintain our property from afar. From the time we first met with Charlie he has consistently treated us as if we were his only clients. We couldn't imagine anyone providing us with better or more courteous service.

This is Phil Long. I live and work in Vail, Colorado and am one of the partners in The Red Lion Restaurant and Bar. I have had the pleasure of knowing Bart Whiteman for years. Bart has a unique gift in his field. He certainly went the extra mile for me. His knowledge of the island and its properties is unmatched. Once he knew what I wanted there was no wasted time showing me things he knew I wouldn't like. I purchased a condo from him nearly 18 years ago...the only thing that really makes me mad is I sold it about 5 years later....should have kept it. It was a great Island House unit. Bart got us a great deal...he held our hand through the whole process and followed up many times to make sure it was a good fit for us.

We had the distinguished pleasure of working with Marge McDougal of Foundation Realty for finding and purchasing a Condo on Hilton Head Island. She is very professional, was timely in responding to questions and was able to find several viable options in our price range. Being a resident of the Island, she has a great understanding of all that Hilton Head has to offer with respect to restaurants, shopping, tennis, golf, nature preserves, beaches and bike trails. Marge is also very knowledgeable about each of the various plantation areas on the Island. She was instrumental in assisting with the closing of our property and we would highly recommend and endorse her and her company.

We have been real estate clients of Mr. Bart Whiteman since 1995, when we made our first real estate purchase of a lot in Palmetto Hall Plantation. Through the years, we have had additional transactions involving properties in The Preserve, The Crescent and Shell Hall. I have always felt in our dealings with Bart that our best interests always had the highest priority.

Thank you for all your help through the process of making our "out of state" purchase. You were so accessible, going above and beyond to assist us and answer our questions. We wish you the best in your career.

We have worked with Bart Whiteman to buy and sell a parcel of land in Palmetto Hall, and 3 years ago, to purchase our Condo in Shelter Cove. As Bart has grown up on the island, his local knowledge has been so valuable to my wife Kathy and I. Bart starts out as your Real Estate agent, but quickly becomes a trusted adviser, a local connection; and a friend.

I wanted to let you know what a great experience we had with Bart Whiteman as our real estate agent.  Bart was attentive to every detail throughout the process.  I was pretty clear on what I was looking for and he was able to direct me right to the most appropriate listings to meet my needs.  I had identified a mortgage partner that was out of state and Bart was a great go between to make sure that the process was on track.  He interfaced in a timely manner with the selling party and their real estate agent and we quickly covered all details.  Bart was available and interested in the follow up on the inspection and repair list and made time for a read out of the necessary changes that were going to be made to the home.  Bart was a consistent partner, all the way through and after the sale.  He even helped my husband move things in!!  I have never had that kind of service with a realtor and we have purchased three homes. 

I highly recommend Bart to other prospects seeking a home on HHI.  He is top notch in his service and his character.

Just thought you might want to know. 

All the best,
