DeBordieu: South Carolina United Turtle Enthusiasts

Our DeBordieu and Hobcaw volunteers have been hard at work. Each morning at sunrise volunteers walk the beach in search of signs for a fresh sea turtle nest.
Below are a few of their latest updates. Learn more about this incredible program here: DeBordieu Hobcaw SCUTE

July 29, 2015 - North nest hatch! false crawl


The waxing moon (full on 7/31) along with east/northeast winds are pushing the tides up higher than usual. We will also be having King Tides (extreme high tides) Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1.

North: Pat reported the hatch at 58 days of 6/1 natural DEB05 45 yds. north #11mm! She counted about 40 tracks and also crab activity in the chamber area. We will inventory this nest Saturday at 6:00 p.m. This nest is between DeBordieu and Prince George.

Pat also had a loopy false crawl 3 yds. south #13mm.

DEB 23 HOB 15 SCUTE 115 SC 4789


July 27, 2015 - No activity


We do not have any inventories scheduled for the next few days. When we receive notice from the volunteers that a nest has hatched, we must wait 3 nights before doing the nest inventory. Please check back for 'Daily Updates' to find out the inventory schedule and locations.

DEB 23 HOB 15 SCUTE 114 SC 4771


July 26, 2015 - 2 Inventory results


North: Last night we did the inventory of 5/29 DEB04 located 35 yds. north #9mm. The hatch success was a good 88% with no live hatchlings released.

This morning, Denny had no activity. The turtle that had 14 false crawls in 3 days did not return and may be the one that nested yesterday near the inlet at the south end of Pawleys Island.

Hobcaw: Carolyn, Judie and Debby walked this morning for Derenda. Because of the coyote depredation on HOB04 yesterday, we are experimenting with ways to deter these voracious predators. We used flagging last year and have some on order but in the meantime we are using pinwheels on the 4 corners of the next 3 nests that are in line to hatch. The theory is the movement of the pinwheels in the wind and any sound they make will scare the coyotes.
Carolyn reported HOB03 had a coyote chewed hole in the center of the mesh but not eggs were out. They did the inventory of this nest with Judie digging, Debby and Carolyn counting/sorting. The hatch success was 79% with 2 healthy turtles released (photo of one).

REAL TRENDS ANNOUNCES AMERICA’S BEST REAL ESTATE AGENTS LIST



REAL TRENDS ANNOUNCES AMERICA’S BEST REAL ESTATE AGENTS LISTAmerica’s Best Real Estate Agents receive additional marketing exposure on Zillow and Trulia


Perry Peace of DeBordieu Colony Real Estate was named as  one of America’s most productive agents as a part of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents, the newly issued ranking report produced by REAL Trends and sponsored by Zillow Group.

REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks over 9,900 residential real estate agents solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2014. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.

The real estate agents are ranked in four categories:

• Individual agent — Sales volume

• Individual agent — Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: the buy side and the selling side)

• Agent team — Sales volume

• Agent team — Transaction sides

To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2014. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume.

“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed fewer than eight transactions in 2014 and had less than $1.5 million in sales,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends’ America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. “To say that Perry Peace is an exceptional sales professional is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”

“We are also pleased that two of the nation’s most prominent online real estate websites, Trulia and Zillow, have partnered with REAL Trends to bring a superior level of customer exposure of these sales agent’s performance. They are also offering special offers for personal services to these fine agents,” Murray added.

Information on those receiving this recognition can be found online at http://www.americasbestre.com

“I am obviously pleased and honored to be ranked on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” said Peace.  “It represents the time and effort that we put into each client that we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career. The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition.”
