    Seth was an amazing agent! He knew what we needed before we new walnut we needed! As we were first time homeowners, he made the process extremely easy and understandable! I recommend him to everyone I know! Thank you Seth for helping us own our dream home!
    Aundrea gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    We were given a recommendation to Seth by our realtor in Ohio. My husband and I were new to the area and relocating for my job; neither of us had a clue what the market was like in SC or even about the houses. Seth made everything so positive and easy. I honestly don't think we would have bought a house here if it wasn't for Seth. He accommodated our schedule and planned 20+ house tours in one weekend. He listened and analyzed what we were looking for to find houses that matched us and our budget. We are forever thankful for the service Seth provided us and we love our new house. I recommend Seth to anyone who's looking for a realtor. He knows his stuff and he will be dedicated to helping you find the house of your dreams!!
    Andrew gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Just finished working with Seth on a new investment property. He was great in helping me find the right property over the last few months. Seth went above and beyond and will be working with him again in the future.
    Diane gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Seth is highly recommended for all your real estate needs. He is personable, professional, knowledgeable, efficient, honest and really knows all aspects of the business, including the Bluffton/HHI market. He is great at negotiating and looking out for his client's best interest. We will recommend him to family and friends.
    Bob and Mary gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    We had limited time to purchase a house and He worked with our schedule to make it possible. He shared the differences between our home state and South Carolina. He arranged contractors for us to meet with. He handled all closing from out of state and made it easy,
    Chris & Deborah gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Seth is everything that you need in a realtor. He has all of the skills and attributes necessary to get the job done. And he's also a very nice person.
    Daniel gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    I have had many transactions over the past 10 years and this was the most thorough. I didn't have to check in for status of the sale and all my expectations were met.
    Mike gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    If you are lucky enough to meet Seth Tilton, you will be amazed at all the strengths I have listed below are for real, not hype. Add to that list, Enthusiasm for his chosen career and for your wants and needs. He has a fantastic team that he can gather to make your purchase or sale transpire as smoothly as possible, if there are "bumps" along the way, he will smooth them out! If you are smart enough to contact Seth and meet with him or speak with him on the phone, you will will totally understand why clients trust him, rely on him and most importantly REFER him to friends and family for their real estate needs! Seth and his ERA EVERGREEN REAL ESTATE team work as team, not a a bunch of individuals. Seth and his tea truly care about you!
    John & Lyndi gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    We had been searching by ourselves for over a year and couldn't really find anything that sparked our interest. We wanted a vacation home that also had "Home Office" space. We came across Seth through friends/family and it didn't take him long to find EXACTLY what we wanted. Actually, we bought the first place he showed us. We would highly recommend Seth and ERA Evergreen Real Estate.
    Peg & Ed gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Our move was a bit more complicated than usual. We are relocating from Massachusetts to Hilton Head and as an elderly couple, we had a very specific list of requirements. We immediately liked Seth upon meeting him and though we were only on HHI for 48 hours, he provided a good sample of properties to review. In addition, our purchase had to change from a cash to a mortgage, and he quickly arranged that for us. A very nice guy and he certainly knows his stuff. We are delighted with our purchase.
    Brian gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Seth provided the knowledge and experince we needed, while exhibiting his awareness to ever-evolving trends in the market. His energetic personality was a perfect fit for our needs in a realtor. Not only did we find and purchase the home of our dreams, we were able to enjoy the entire process with a new friend/advisor. You can't go wrong with Seth! He delivers on every level.

    Curt & Lois gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Seth was actually pinch hitting for another ERA Agent who had to be out of town. He stepped right in and found us a number of houses. In less than a week we found the house we wanted. Seth gave invaluable service to Lois and I as we navigated through the paperwork. He was instrumental in helping us with Flood, Homeowners and Auto Insurances by putting us in touch with an Insurance Agent who took care of our needs. Our experience with Seth was extremely important to us in making this move.
    Donna gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Would highly recommend Seth to any of my colleagues.
    Donna gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    We cannot say enough about the level of Professionalism that Seth brings to the table. When we started the purchasing process Seth was there for us and did not pressure us one way or another. As we progressed through the purchasing process and narrowed our search down to a few potential properties, Seth gave us a very unbiased assessment of each location. However, his involvement did not end when we decided on a Property. He took the time to make sure that the disclosure process (Inspections, Insurances, Cost, Financing, etc...) went as smoothly as the discovery process. After the closing, Seth stepped in once again! He continued to work with us as we started to add our own personal touches to our property. He assisted us in the selection of contractors for property improvements and even work with us to furnish the unit. Seth is a Professional that understands the meaning of "Total Customer Satisfaction".

    Thank you Pete and Donna! It was such a pleasure introducing you to the Hilton Head Lifestyle! I'm only as good as the people that i'm surrounded by and we had a great team of lenders, and attorneys that helped make everything happen! I'm so excited for you to be spending more time on the island as your family looks to transition here and will look forward to seeing the transformation of the condo into your perfect getaway!
    John gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    We listed our second home with Seth when we decided to sell. Once it was under contract, he was very helpful in helping us facilitate things long distance. Once the home inspection was complete, he helped us find a conteactor who could complete all the necessary repairs. Seth also was able to give this contractor access to our home in our absence. Thanks very much, Seth!

    Diane gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Seth and I are long-time friends, but as my real estate agent, he really went above and beyond. It took a long time to find the right house, but Seth never gave up. He managed to find a house with everything on my wish list and in my price range. Seth was there every step of the way right up to closing and beyond. I would and do recommend Seth to anyone and everyone! Seth makes dreams come true!!
    Response from Seth
    Thank you for the kind words Diane!! Looking forward to having you back in the Low Country again!
    Sean gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Seth is a passionate agent. He took on my non-traditional property and ran with it. He is great at communicating and wonderful with technology, which are essential skills in todays real estate market. He is tenacious and willing to work hard to get the job done. I cannot speak enough to what a great experience this was. I highly recommend Seth to anyone looking to purchase or sell real estate in the Low Country.

    Seth was very knowledgeable and a true professional. He made our home buying experience feel extremely comfortable by answering questions and continuously assessing our needs. If your looking for a realtor that works hard he will not disappoint. He changed from being someone we work with to a family friend throughout the journey. Thanks Seth for putting my family in our dream home!
    Michelle gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    For a first-time homebuyer, Seth was an excellent guide through the process. He found us a great home in our top-choice neighborhood, and he helped us work with the buyer to get the right price. He was also extremely helpful, with useful tips and information to help make the whole process easier. Seth was also really good about following up with us, responding to our questions and giving us honest advice. Thanks, Seth!
    Response from Seth
    Thank you Michelle and Carl! Ya'll were such a pleasure to work with. I'm so happy to have helped find your home in your desired neighborhood! Helping first time home buyers is such a great perk to this line of work.

    Seth was great to deal with, he listened to our needs and negotiated on our behalf. We have already used him for a second time for a condo purchase and he has great information about Bluffton and Hilton Head. I would not hesitate to contact him in the future.
    Summer gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    Seth is an exceptional realtor! He went above and beyond what most realtors in the area do. No stone was unturned and every detail was handled. He was always in constant communication with me. He even did the final walk through for me when I couldn't be there. I cannot say enough good things about him. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter your price range. He's a hard worker with integrity. What can I say, he's the best!!!
    Nate and Brittany gave Seth 5 stars out of 5
    We recently bought a new home on Hilton Head Island and could not have been happier with Seth Tilton as our realtor. My wife and I are new young professionals to the island. Hilton Head is a very unique place and if you are not familiar with the infrastructure, it can be confusing, so Seth educated us on plantation living as well as the available possibilities off-plantation. Having a realtor like Seth who has such an in depth knowledge of the area is key. My wife and I received email updates on available properties daily from a personalized ERA database which Seth set up, many of the properties displaying a "virtual tour" that Seth has personally developed. We made lists of homes we wanted to visit and Seth promptly set up the showings. Interestingly though, Seth had a great ability to listen to the desires and concerns of both me and my wife and was able to show us a few properties that were not "on our radar," one of which we fell in love with and ended up buying! Seth definitely works tirelessly for his clients, returning calls, text messages, and emails promptly, a majority of the time immediately. He also is extremely well connected on Hilton Head and has been instrumental in making sure our transition to the island is as smooth as possible. I thoroughly recommend using this realtor who found this couple their dream home! We can't thank him enough.
