Tricia Petersen, Founder & Broker In Charge

(843) 847-1762 | tricia@islandhouserealestate.com

Before transitioning into Charleston real estate, Tricia served in the medical field as a physical therapist for more than 15 years. Although these two ventures may seem worlds apart, for her the common denominator is helping others make smart, informed decisions that will significantly impact their quality of life. With this simple mission to continue helping others and contribute to her clients and community in a meaningful way, Tricia founded Island House Real Estate in 2018. Known for her empathetic approach, creative solutions, and unmatched stiletto sprint, she is proud to earn deep, lasting relationships with her clients based on hard work, dedication, and success in helping them find a home. Among her many accolades, Tricia is year after year, a Platinum Realtor of Distinction being recognized among the top 2% of Charleston Realtors, and an East Cooper Top Producer composed of the top real estate agents representing the East Cooper and Daniel Island areas. In addition to serving as the broker-in-charge for Island House Real Estate, she is also a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), member of the Million Dollar Guild, Resort & Second-Home Specialist (RSPS), and a National Association of Realtors certified Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) and Sellers Representative Specialist (SRS). Tricia graduated with her B.S. in Biology from Gannon University and Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Slippery Rock University.  After moving to Charleston in 2008, she dove full speed ahead into her Real Estate career. For each and every client, Tricia hopes they will look back on Island House Real Estate for years to come with a smile knowing they put their trust in the right team and were in the best hands from listing to close. Tricia and her husband Brett, along with their three children, live on Daniel Island. Between closings, staging, photos, social media posts, newsletters, meetings, paperwork, and running comps, Tricia can be found with her husband and kids on the boat, at the beach, working on renovation projects, or in St. Maarten floating in the blue sea.

Jill Hamilton, Realtor

 (843) 830-2522 | jillian@islandhouserealestate.com

Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ with a career tour across California and professional travels taking her as far as the UK, Jill made her way south landing in Augusta, GA in 2015, where she owned and operated a boutique Pure Barre Studio with her husband. As the newest member of the Island House Real Estate team, she knows that (often) life makes it abundantly clear to us where we need to be and when. Looking back, all the best choices Jill made came from recognizing and acting on those basic instincts – including when she and her husband made the decision to establish roots and relocate to Mount Pleasant in 2019. Before becoming a realtor, she spent most of her career working as a hospitality consultant for high-end golf and country clubs and working in the boutique fitness space – this experience equipped Jill with the valuable skills to provide excellent service before, during, and after the transaction. A quintessential extrovert, she is impressively intuitive and easily relates to her clientele across all walks, stories, and backgrounds drawn to this desirable market and the lifestyle it represents. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or seasoned real estate investor, Jill gets no greater satisfaction than rising to the challenge and guiding you to the closing table on your terms. Jill’s passion for health and wellness has led her to complete 15 half-marathons and the Chicago marathon. When she is not searching the Lowcountry for prime homes, you can find Jill teaching a Pure Barre class, taking hot yoga, or hanging out with her husband David & their Morkie, Daisy.
