Famliy Beach Time @ DeBordieu.

DebordieuJenGood evening! If you know me, follow me or my wife on Facebook, or paid any attention to my last post you know we have hit the beach!

This year we find ourselves at DeBordieu Colony. It’s my second time at this massive property and it’s pretty awesome. We’re in a beautiful home that’s nicely situated in the back of a semi-circle of homes that faces the beach. Across the street is a good size pond for fishing or whatever. Yes, there are gators and the kids have been duly warned.

Straight up, this is the easiest and most pleasant walk from dwelling to ocean I’ve experienced. Got a big YETI that seemed like a good idea until it was time to haul that mug to the actual beach? No problem here. Tellin’ ya.

The pic above is my wife relaxing with an adult drink in Junior League of Columbia baseball cap while four sweet girls enjoy the waves in front of her.

This all said, real estate does not stop and we’re putting new listings on the market consistently.

If you or anyone you know would like to know more about what’s going on in Downtown Columbia, or today’s real estate marketplace, please call 803-447-8683.  If you need anything while I’m away, please call or text the same number, or email Franklin@FArealtygroup.com or Amanda@FArealtygroup.com and we will make sure you’re well taken care of.

Thank you!!!… and I’m anxious to post some more pics of our trip.
