About Us

Patsy Zanetti and Stuart Rumph are the only true sales team on Seabrook. Their partnership provides clients with the two top agents, extensive marketing, two assistants, and unparalleled experience.
Stuart, a 16th generation Charleston native, is a true southern gentleman. He grew up exploring Seabrook and Kiawah Islands as a child and knows the area intimately. He graduated from Belmont Abbey College with a BS in Business Administration and is a licensed Captain in the US Coast Guard. He was a yacht captain for six years which allowed him to enjoy extensive international travel. However, his feeling remains that, " of all the islands I have visited in my travels, none can compare with the natural beauty of Seabrook."

Stuart's professional philosophy and work ethic helped make him the number three listing realtor in the office in his first year. "There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional; integrity, in-depth community and marketing knowledge, effective negotiation skills and a high professional network, all of which hallmarks of how I work. In my experience as a Seabrook Island real estate professional, I've also found that in order to provide the very best service, I have to put my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator and responding quickly to my clients' needs."

Stuart specializes in waterfront and resort properties on Seabrook, Johns Island and Kiawah. He utilizes his widespread local knowledge and boating skills to show his clients the wonderful views of the low country islands both by land and by water. A recent client wrote home shopping with Stuart is truly a day at the beach. He is the ultimate professional, and with his energy, dedication and determination he gets the job done. As a full time agent, Stuart is available to show houses when it is convenient for the client, which includes after hours and weekends. When he is not busy helping his clients, Stuart enjoys spending time with his three beautiful children Caroline, Campbell, and Katherine.

Patsy was fortunate to start with Seabrook Island Realty in 1980. She worked with the top agent, Caroline McLoud. With Caroline's expertise and training, Patsy became the number one agent in the office, a title she has held for the last six consecutive years, and closed the largest single home sale, in dollars, ever recorded by Seabrook Island Real Estate. Patsy also has her Broker In Charge License and has filled the position numerous times. She brings to the team over 23 years of experience in resort real estate. She has always considered herself blessed to live and work in one of the best island communities on the east coast. Along with her partner Stuart, she continues to be the top listing and sales agent at Seabrook Island Realty and has probably toured almost every home on the island. Her goal is to find the perfect property for each client. However, Patsy's relationship with her clients does not end at the closing. She enjoys helping them become acclimated to their new home and community.
Seabrook also holds a special place in Patsy's heart because it is where she has raised her two daughters, Emma and Annie, and met her husband Lee, a retired investment banker. When she has the time, she loves relaxing on the beach, walking, reading, and cooking. Her family also belongs to the Episcopal Church of our Savior.

Along with Patsy and Stuart, the Team also includes Lynn Gerard, full time administrative assistant, and Carol Fehon, listing manager. Lynn assists Patsy and Stuart by coordinating all the details of the transaction, including inspection, financing and title reports. She ensures the sale or purchase of a property is facilitated into a smooth and enjoyable real estate experience. Carol manages the vacant listings, including weekly inspections and tracks showings. She is also available to assist our clients with staging their property for maximum value. Their efforts allow Patsy and Stuart to dedicate more time to communicating with their clients, strengthening their broad based, national marketing programs and continue to offer their clients the highest standard of excellence possible. The Team's attention to detail is evident at every stage, from the first meeting, to the successful closing of a sale.

Client Comments

"We are thrilled to be new homeowners on Seabrook Island. We've been vacationing many years at both Seabrook and Kiawah with the last three summers at Seabrook. We've made good use of the beach club, the golf courses, the tennis courts, the fitness center, and the equestrian center. We also enjoy going into Charleston for shopping and dinner. Most importantly, our 4 1/2 year old daughter, Piper, loves it. With the favorable real estate market and Project Horizon in construction, we decided it was a great time to buy. Patsy and Stuart made the buying process enjoyable. They were extremely helpful in providing us with information to understand the real estate market. They were also open and accurate about the costs of ownership so there were no surprises."-- Jim Brown & Penny Lee

"The day we listed we got a call to show it. We had an offer and a deal before we returned home that day. Needless to say, we were delighted. When we were ready to leave Patsy and Stuart made it happen and the whole selling process was a great experience, one we're grateful for."-- Coy and Missy Foster

"Our experience with Stuart was positive in every way and we would highly recommend him to any prospective buyers, sellers or just lookers. Even after the sale he was there to assist and help which was very much appreciated."-- Jean and John Lunt
