History of Island Realty

A staple of the Charleston Island community since 1977, Island Realty’s family-owned and operated property management company has been providing over 38 years’ worth of memories to vacationers and residents of the Lowcountry.

A true family operation, owners Alexander D. Stone III (Sandy) and Peggy Stone’s eldest son, Alexander D. Stone IV (Alex) serves as the company’s General Manager, while youngest son, Eric, has continually worked his way into his current role of Owner Representative.

The Stones have always worked under the “neighbor” mentality, meaning that being a contributing member to the communities they serve is equally as important as the service provided within the business.

In 2014, Island Realty donated over $25,000 worth of complimentary beach vacations and served as a sponsor to over 20 organizations’ charity events in the Lowcountry. Island Realty continues its commitment towards making the Lowcountry a fantastic place to live and visit in 2015, and expects to surpass $25,000 in gifts before the end of the year. 

Internally, Island Realty provides a multitude of jobs and internships to graduates of Lowcountry high schools and colleges, and provides each employee with a team-based work environment with opportunities for growth both personally and professionally.

The Stone family credits much of their success to the strong relationships with property owners and the community and fully expects to successfully carry out the company’s mission of “providing quality property services by dedicated people working together to meet or exceed expectations” for another 38 years!
