“We dreamed about buying a home in Hilton Head for about 15 years but when it came to pulling the trigger, we were very nervous about doing it from so far away. Since we still lived in Illinois, we weren't sure how to go about the entire process - from narrowing our search to specific areas, all the way through to the closing. But fortunately, Lindsay Bunting came recommended to us by a trusted friend - and we are SO glad she did! Lindsay guided us every step of the way and I'm happy to say that with her patience, persistence, and expertise we did find our forever home! And in addition to her vast real estate knowledge, Lindsay's passion for the island was obvious and it just confirmed what we had felt about Hilton Head all the years we vacationed here. We have lived on the island full-time, almost a year now and the only regret that we have is that we didn't find Lindsay sooner!!!”
Very knowledgeable and experienced in Sea Pines and on Hilton Head. Provided invaluable advice through a somewhat daunting task. We used Lindsay to search for a new home and she worked through the search process, the negotiations and the closing process and was always professional and ethical.
Lindsay is terrific! Warm, friendly and extremely professional and knowledgeable. We’ve used her services twice; once as sellers and again as buyers. In both instances she was on top of every detail from listing to closing; provided valuable information we were unaware of and responded to our phone calls/emails almost immediately. Lindsay handled both transactions for us while we were living out of state and made us feel very comfortable knowing we were in her capable hands. There’s a reason she’s the #1 realtor in Sea Pines; she’s simply the best!
Lindsay is an extraordinary talent. We sold our Sea Pines beach home with Lindsay as our agent. Her advice and guidance were both excellent which allowed us to properly prepare and price our home for sale resulting in a smooth transaction for an excellent outcome. Had we listed our home with the other realtors we quoted, it would have cost us tens of thousands of dollars. Lindsay is one of a kind. She has an in-depth knowledge of the HHI real estate market and a level of professionalism and communication to drive successful outcomes for maximum value.
Lindsay was great in every way! She found the buyer, negotiated a fair price, negotiated a schedule for closing and for my getting out of the house that met my needs, and was wonderful to deal with. I will call her when I am ready to sell my current home!
I would highly recommend Lindsay. She is personable, professional, logical, always prepared, extremely well respected by other realtors and builders. Whether you do one transaction or ten with her, she will be a friend for life. She truly does always put clients first. It has been my pleasure to know her.
My wife and I were referred to Lindsay by my sister in law who had a good experience with Lindsay. I am a commercial real estate broker in the Philadelphia area and tend to be very skeptical/judgmental of residential realtors. Lindsay quickly won me over. She took the time to understand our wants, needs and resources and patiently showed us property for several years before we decided to buy a condo. As the kids grew older, we decided to sell the condo and buy a house and Lindsay did a spectacular job on both fronts. By then she knew us well and no time was wasted looking at houses we wouldn't buy. We ended up with what was, for us, the perfect house in the perfect location in Sea Pines. Needless to say we have become good friends. Lindsay is hard-working, honest, professional and 100% trustworthy. Look no further.
Lindsay assisted us in the purchase of 2 homes and the sale of 2 homes. She created a lot of traffic for the homes she sold for us and delivered 2 full price sales. Linday quickly accessed our needs, likes and dislikes and did a great job of screening prospective homes, providing good overviews and advice on the neighborhoods and helped structure good price point offers on our purchases.
Lindsay Bunting is awesome!! We worked with her for two summers to find out perfect home in Sea Pines. Our dream became a reality, July 2016!! She had the vision and drive to help us achieve the dream we did not think was going to be possible. We were reluctant to purchase a “fixer upper” and she helped us see the true potential of the house!! Nine months later, after an extensive remodel, we have our dream home!! She even went above and beyond to get a swimming pool plan in place, even though we were told it wasn’t possible to have a pool!! Thank you Lindsay!!
Lindsay Bunting is simply the best!! As a former Realtor, I am always a tough critic when buying or selling Real Estate. But Lindsay was top notch in every detail. Her years of experience, ability to communicate effectively, and her sincere desire to help her clients are just a few of the reasons we will always be team Lindsay! Every transaction is seamless and enjoyable!
We’ve owned 5 different properties on Hilton Head over the last 16 years. Every purchase and every sale was a great experience with Lindsay Bunting of Sea Pines Real Estate Cottage Group. She has always led us to the best properties and consistently gotten us the best price on both the buying and selling end. MOST importantly, she is a wonderful person to work with, a highly skilled real estate professional and now, a good friend.
We loved working with Lindsay Bunting!! A very informative, fun, and relaxing experience. In the 3 years in owning our home, Lindsay is still always there for us!!
Lindsay's understanding of the Sea Pines Real Estate Market is unsurpassed! Moreover, Lindsay provides excellent personal service. Lindsay's integrity is unquestioned. We trust her judgement and knowledge of the market totally. Her reputation and performance speak for themselves.

We have known Lindsay for many years on a personal level first and now as a good friend and our Realtor. We do not hesitate to recommend her to our friends and acquaintances who may be interested in property in the Hilton Head area. She always makes you feel comfortable when viewing properties and lets you know when anything of interest is happening in the market. Lindsay is a very personable and professional agent. One anyone would enjoy working with and viewing properties.
Paul and Cookie Hall, Schooner Court
Lindsay became our friend when she sold us our first Hilton Head home in 1997. Since then she has successfully helped us buy and sell to where we are today in Sea Pines second row. In this day and time it's extremely rare to find an honest, hard working Realtor but Lindsay is just that. We not only would highly recommend her but count her as our friend.
Marjorie W Gissendanner
Lindsay represented us in the sale of our condo at the Racquet Club in Sea Pines. She was extremely professional and was a pleasure to work with. She was a great help determining the list price. We were very pleased with her services. We would recommend Lindsay to anyone and look forward to working with her again.
Pat and Chris Coston, Bar Harbor, Maine
We first heard of Lindsay through friends who had been longtime residents of Sea Pines. At the time we had been trying to sell our Sea Pines villa for over a year without a single offer. Frustrated with the slow moving real estate market, we asked Lindsay to list the property for us...wise move. Lindsay mapped out a plan on how best to showcase, price, and market the villa. Her strategy worked, and in less than a month from the date of the new listing, we were under contract, closing shortly thereafter. Lindsay's professionalism, advise, and handling of the entire matter were beyond outstanding. "You gotta know the territory" must have been written with her in mind. No one knows Sea Pines like Lindsay.

I first met Lindsay in 1992, we had our 2nd home located on Oyster Catcher in Sea Pines listed for sale with another agent. When the listing expired we decided to list with some one else. Our agent suggested that we consider Lindsay Bunting, which we did. (Nice to have your competition recommend you!) After selling that house, we bought a Sea Pines villa, which we sold about four years later and then bought another house. All of these transactions were handled by Lindsay. She also has handled the purchase and sale of a villa for our son. The purchase of a villa for our daughter and one for my nephew. Lindsay is not only our family Realtor, but is like a member of our family.
Lindsay has handled real estate transactions for a number of our friends from Virginia. One of those has been involved in twelve different real estate transactions on Hilton Head involving millions of dollars, which were all handled by Lindsay . As a Realtor you don't get this kind of repeat business if you are not good at what you do.
Lindsay is one of approximately 55 Sea Pines Real Estate agents. Last year, in 2007, she was # 1 in closed sales, # 4 in closed listings and # 2 in total closed business for Sea Pines Real Estate Company. She is consistantly in the top 10% of the Sea Pines agents in total production. In 2007 she was # 5 out of all Hilton Head Multiple Listing Service agents (approximately 2000). Lindsay knows Island property values, knows how to market your property and has the experience to deal with any type of real estate problem. She also has the knowledge and contacts to arrange financing if needed.
If you plan to buy or sell a permanent home, 2nd home, villa, lot or investment property on the Island, give Lindsay a call. She "WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN"!!

One will not find a better Realtor on the Island than Lindsay Bunting. She quickly moved from being a total stranger to finding us a terrific second home in a matter of weeks. The service she exemplified from the day we first met all the way through closing was exceptional. It is easy to buy a home from hundreds of miles away when you use the service of Lindsay. A wealth of knowledge comes from her 20 years of experience and Lindsay will use that knowledge to help you buy the home of your dreams at a great price. Our friendship has remained well past this real estate transaction.

We first met Lindsay by pure chance at one of her "open houses" a few years ago. We had been visitng Hilton Head for two decades. We had considered, but never gotten serious, about buying our own home in Sea Pines. We had met a few real estate agents along the way but none were very special or very interested in helping us.
A year after meeting Lindsay we got more serious about buying a home. Not knowing where to turn, we reached out to Lindsay--she immediately remembered us. (She had kept our email address that we had written for her on a napkin on her office board). Three months later we purchased, with her tremendous assistance, our home at Lands End.
Lindsay made our home buying process not only easy but enjoyable from start to finish. She has a deep knowledge of the Sea Pines market and an uncanny ability to understand her clients individual needs. She is patient, not pushy, prompt, and very hard working. And best yet, she has become one of our closest friends, a friendship we very much cherish.

My family and I just recently concluded the sale of our Heritage Villa and the purchase of 22 Stoney Creek Road I need to tell you about the level of service that we received from Lindsay Bunting. Lindsay has been so great to me and my family since we met her close to two years ago. Although we were uncertain about whether we would sell, and even took our villa off the market once, Lindsay never hesitated in showing us properties or answering any questions we had. We now consider her our best friend on Hilton Head. She is clearly not like any of the other Real Estate agents we have dealt with, she has no interest in steering us towards a higher priced home than we want, or a house that we don't want. She's just been great to work with and she was instrumental in helping me set up the support team that I now have in place around the care and maintenance of our new place. Lindsay is clearly the best Real Estate agent in Hilton Head, and maybe even in the universe. I hope you're picking up on my enthusiasm.

We are lucky to be working with Lindsay. Her knowledge of the on-Island and off-Island real estate market is outstanding. We bought in Long Cove in 2002 and she continues to keep us abreast of markets. As non-resident owners, her familiarity with local businesses has been invaluable to us in maintaining our home. When we are ready to buy or sell again, Lindsay will be our first and only call. I have recommended Lindsay to all of my friends looking at real estate on Hilton Head Island.
David and Tammye Jones, South Orange, New Jersey
Our relationship started December 2004 when, through limited research and sheer gut feel, we contacted her to help us (part-timers) help friends from Toronto also find a vacation home. We had bought in Sea Pines a year earlier, through someone else and on the spur of the moment, and were also interested in checking out other options for us on the Island.
Lindsay was a great listener, extremely knowledgeable, patient, honest and dedicated to the cause. In April 2005 we closed on our perfect second house; our friends were also successful later that year. From the outset, we have repeatedly benefitted from Lindsay's vast network of recommended tradesmen, suppliers, retailers, etc. and her leverage in being able to assure prompt and reliable service. Her desire, readiness and willingness to help us with major and minor issues, during our visits and absences from HH has been invaluable. We genuinely like her and our "professional" relationship very quickly turned into a personal one and she has become our closest friend on the Island.
Lindsay is a very special individual, a true professional, an enthusiastic ally, the best Real Estate agent in Hilton Head. We recommend her highly.

"I live, eat and breath Real Estate" is what I heard my mom say once on the phone to one of her clients. As corny as that sounds, it's true. My mom works eight days a week and twenty five hours a day for her clients making sure that everything and anything that they desire is done to the best of her abilities while at the same time she is giving 100% to her family. My mom is supermom!! She can do ANYTHING!! And it sometimes seems that it can all be done at once!
I remember one evening, when AOL first came out, I was trying to help my mom understand and come up with a suitable screen name for her (because she had NO idea what she was doing...she's kind of lost when it comes to technology stuff). As many of you may know already we came up with the screen name "Rltr2Mom". This is beyond a perfect name, she is the ultimate mom, sister, and daughter at the same time! She can multi task better than anyone I know!!
When she told me about how she had a testimonial page on her website I asked her if I could write one too...who better to write about Lindsay Bunting than her own daughter!? And as I was laying in bed the night before I was going back to college for the summer I realized that my mom is the most important person in my life, always has been, always will be. She is my best friend, my mom, and my guardian angel. She can honestly do anything and when I say she's super mom/realtor I am in no way exaggerating it. I wish I could express how proud of her I am and how much she influences me and everyone around her better, but if you knew her you would automatically know what I mean. My mom not only works perfectly and professionally but she does it in a way that will make you feel like family. Most of her closest friends started out as just clients but now are lifelong friends who I have come to know and love as well. She is perfect in as many ways I can think of. I couldn't ask for a better mom or person in my life.
I am sure that anyone who knows her will agree with what I have written here and anyone who doesn't know her you soon will know what we are all talking about on this testimonial page. You will not be let down if my mom is your realtor, I can guarantee that!!! : )
Nancy Bunting, Hilton Head Island and Tampa Florida
We worked with Lindsay for over a year to find the perfect Sea Pines property for our family. She spent time up front understanding what we were looking for and kept us informed of changes in the market that would meet our requirements. She never presented properties that fell outside of our parameters and always presented an objective view of each opportunity. When we found the right property, it required significant renovations. Lindsay brought many resources to the table to help us envision the possibilities and worked hard on our behalf to get past some challenging issues. Today, we thoroughly enjoy our new home and keep in touch with Lindsay regularly. We'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for property in Sea Pines!

When I embarked on the search for a Realtor to sell our family's house, I knew I wanted a Realtor who was fully engaged and focused on Sea Pines. During my first conversation with Lindsay, she claimed to be one of the top Realtors in Sea Pines. I asked her to back up that claim with some proof, which she did.
It is easy to see why Lindsay is one of the top professionals in her field. She guided and reassured us through a difficult market environment. Communications were excellant. All emails, phone calls, and questions were promptly answered. We don't reside on the Island, so Lindsay alone served as our eyes and ears in our absence. At one point, we needed repairs to the house. Through Lindsay's impressive network of contacts, the repairs were professionally done at a fair price.
Lindsay lives and breathes Sea Pines real estate. She is simply the best.
