BEAUFORT, SOUTH CAROLINA—April 19, 2006
Beaufort’s haute haunted Castle has been chosen as Forbes Home of the Week. Featured in Lowcountry HomeReview and listed with Dee Hryharrow at Town & Country Real Estate, the home is one of Beaufort’s most historic. The Greek-Revival mansion, which takes up an entire city block, dates to 1859 and is now home to Beaufort’s mayor, Bill Rauch.
According to local legend (and Rauch’s six-year-old daughter), it’s also home to a friendly ghost from the 17th century. But with 8,000 square feet, eight fireplaces and a dramatic double staircase sweeping up from the home’s grand entry, the editors at Forbes had plenty to be impressed with besides the ghost story.
The agents at Town and Country Real Estate are thrilled about the exposure. “You’re the best,” said Cat Swanson. “I sent a copy to Mayor Rauch and asked that this information be added to the MLS message board so that other real estate companies can see what advertising with your company can do for them!” HomeReview is going above and beyond for its clients. “We hired a public relations specialist to help us market our clients’ listings on a national level, and we’re definitely seeing the results,” said Latham Jenkins, President of Circumerro and Publisher of HomeReview. “Forbes’ readers are HomeReview’s target audience—affluent baby-boomers buying lifestyle properties in great places to live—so this is the kind of exposure we’ll continue to go after on behalf of our advertisers.”
HomeReview targets affluent out-of-area buyers of lifestyle real estate in great places to live, including Jackson Hole, Charleston, and the greater South Carolina Lowcountry. Listings are featured on the HomeReview websites as well as the New York Times and Wall Street Journal’s real estate websites, and in a companion print guide.
