What clients say about working with the Ussery Group

Knowledge of PB and the area is unsurpassed

“We purchased our house at Palmetto Bluff eight years ago with the help of Thomas Maybank. He has been a dear friend ever since. His knowledge of PB and the area is unsurpassed and as we are not full-time residents, we rely on him often. His real estate experience and guidance helped us find the perfect home at Palmetto Bluff. When we looked at houses for sale on a whim eight years ago, we didn’t expect to find such a magical place. Buying our house was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Thanks for everything, Thomas!”

Made the buying process a joy

“Michael Haire was great to work with in buying a home at Palmetto Bluff (PB). He asked questions and listened well to what we were looking for, and then showed us options that met or exceeded our expectations. His sense of humor and friendly side-kick Kona made the buying process a joy. Michael was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable and he made times available to meet with us on short notice with our tight travel schedule. We love our new PB home and would highly recommend Michael for your Lowcountry real estate needs.”

Personality and superior character

“As one of the original members of the Palmetto Bluff real estate team and the longest serving member of that team, few if any know Palmetto Bluff and Palmetto Bluff real estate as well as Keene Reese. We surely benefitted from his depth of knowledge and excellent relationships when we purchased and developed our Palmetto Bluff homesite. Keene’s wonderful personality and superior character added to our very favorable experience. We certainly intend to involve Keene in our next Low Country transaction.”

We found the perfect home

“We wandered into Michael Haire’s office unannounced and without any plan to leave California and move to Palmetto Bluff. Fast forward just a few months, and we were back for a “visit”. Michael’s knowledge of the community and his ability to assess and respond to what we liked and didn’t like as we toured homes made the buying experience easy. His dry sense of humor made it fun. With his help, we found the perfect home and closed escrow painlessly, despite doing so long distance. He is a consummate professional, a great guy and the best broker we’ve ever worked with anywhere.”

Finally, what sets him apart from other real estate agents is his utmost integrity—which is very important to us. We will be happy to recommend Thomas to anyone who has real estate needs in the Bluffton area, as we have done with many of our friends.”

A true advocate

“We were very fortunate to connect with Thomas Maybank through friends who had a top-notch experience as his clients, and we received the same over-delivery. Thomas is incredibly attentive and responsive, and also leads with patience and grace. We were given space to contemplate and never felt pressure at any point in the process. We are new to the area, and Thomas’ vast knowledge, experience, and attention to detail, made us feel completely confident we had a true advocate in him. Thomas is a modern Southern gentleman and an expert in his profession; we cannot recommend him enough!”

“The rural Lowcountry landscape preserved”

Palmetto Bluff is a wildlife preserve community.

The Palmetto Bluff Conservancy was founded in 2003 with a commitment to protect the community’s maritime forests, rivers, and tidal creeks, as well as the many species of wildlife that call these regions home.

Preserving the area’s environmental integrity is paramount, which is why a full-time archaeologist and a team of on-site naturalists are counted among Palmetto Bluff’s staff.

Thanks to the Conservancy’s dedication to conservation and green building practices, Palmetto Bluff members continue to enjoy the same pristine views of the May River that have been admired for generations.

Perhaps that’s why Palmetto Bluff has been called “The last great land treasure on the East Coast.”
