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.

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

It would almost be reductive to call Richard Porcelli, DDS, MS, just a dentist. To be sure, his practice at the Biological Center for Dentistry does offer the utmost in dental care – at a level of expertise that draws clients not just from around the Lowcountry, but around the world. But for Dr. Porcelli, it’s about much more than just a healthy smile.
