Ask anyone who’s ever bought or sold a home, and they’ll tell you that one of the most nerve-racking phases of the whole deal is the inspection. Compounding the dread that comes from a possible deal-breaker emerging during the process is the often-aggravating inconsistency within the industry. It’s that last pain point that Brad Tholen looked to eliminate through his business, Horizon Home Inspectors.

EZRA (CAL) CALLAHAN

When Ezra Callahan first arrived on Hilton Head Island, he had no idea how rich our island’s history was.

“What drew me in first was finding out about Mitchelville,” he said. “Then, through the Heritage Library, I learned about Zion Chapel of Ease Cemetery… it’s amazing that there are so many historical sites on Hilton Head Island.”

JEFFREY REEVES

For Jeffrey Reeves, accepting the role as CEO of the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina was not only an honor, but a validation of his nearly 20 years of service to the Arts Center and our community. Accepting this position on the eve of a pandemic that would effectively halt onstage events, however, represented a true trial by fire.
