About Betty Hemphill - Hilton Head Real Estate Agent

Betty and her husband, John, lived in several resorts before making Hilton Head Island their home in 1983. They found Hilton Head Island to be the ideal environment for raising a family-not just for the schools, sports, beaches, boating, bike trails and arts, but because of the community. Hilton Head Island's community is a diverse, interesting, accomplished group of people who are committed to preserving Hilton Head Island's natural beauty.

Betty grew up in Texas and came to Hilton Head Island via California and Colorado. She sold real estate in California prior to joining The Sea Pines Real Estate Co. in 1991.

Betty's experience is evidenced by her high sales volume in the Hilton Head real estate market. She is consistently in the top 1% for individual agents out of 1150 area Realtors in Hilton Head Island real estate. Betty not only enjoys her profession, but also works hard for her clients.

Meet Suzan DeCorso Weber
Office Manager and So Much More

Suzan is highly qualified, energetic, honest, trustworthy and discreet. She processes contracts and listings, manages correspondence, co-ordinates marketing - the list goes on.

Realtors are often out of the office showing property. It is important for clients to have easy communication and access. If Suzan can't answer a question, she knows what my appointments are and where I can be reached.


Betty is extremely nice to work with. She took care of getting someone in Hilton Head to repair the issues noted in the inspection report in a short period of time.

She went way out of her way to get the 17 Green Heron house sold on Hilton Head and at the asking price. I was very happy with the outcome of it.

Dear Betty,

We would like to say a big thank you for all your help during our search for a Hilton Head home. There are not many Hilton Head real estate agents (that we've found) who are pleasant and easy to work with, and that is why we appreciate meeting you. Your "non-pushy" and non threatening manner made a difficult task simple and fun. We have found Hilton Head Island delightful and it's because of people like you.

Dear Betty,

I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for the extremely professional way in which you handled this transaction as well as the sale of our home on Eastwind. You spent quite a bit of time over the preceding months helping my wife and I select the right Hilton Head real estate property. Once we landed on a house, you patiently worked the deal through several permutations before finally getting it done. You have been a joy to deal with and we would unhesitatingly use you again and recommend you to anyone interested in buying Hilton Head real estate. You can add my name to your list of completely satisfied customers.

Dear Betty,

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the Hilton Head real estate service you provided in the sale of our existing home and in the purchase of our new home on Hilton Head Island in Sea Pines. You helped make the process problem and stress free. Being in the real estate business for over 20 years and owning a real estate company, I know it is rare to find someone who possesses the professionalism, sincerity and warmth you display. Dena and I feel very fortunate to have met you and to have you as our new neighbor. Thank you again for providing such a wonderful experience.

To Broker-in-Charge:

We recently closed on the sale of our Sea Pines Villa, on which we had retained Betty Hemphill to act as our Hilton Head real estate listing agent. I wanted to report to you how much we enjoyed working with Betty and how professionally she handled the entire matter.

I retained Betty because she had sent me a promotional flyer several months ago indicating that she had sold the Villa immediately next door to ours. We listed it with her and within two weeks we had our first offer. The sale was very quickly arranged at a satisfactory price, and the details were smoothly handled. I thought you would like to know.

To Broker-in-Charge:

Thank you for your follow up letter after the sale of our property. I'd like to follow up with a letter of my own, basically a repeat of one I sent you after the purchase of the same property.

Betty Hemphill is quite simply the most efficient, knowledgable, work-willing and pleasant Hilton Head real estate professional we have ever worked with. Thank you for having her on your staff.
