Rita Riley

“Your Fripp Island, SC Real Estate Specialist”

Hello! I’m Rita Riley, real estate agent, and welcome to Fripp Island, South Carolina! This Beaufort County barrier island sits along the Atlantic Coast in South Carolina’s Lowcountry region about 21 miles southeast of Beaufort. As the most seaward of the Sea Islands, Fripp Island mostly serves as a residential vacation resort area, though several hundred residents make it their permanent home. With renowned resort amenities and natural conservation, Fripp is a private, gated community run by the Fripp Island Property Owners Association, and it includes several restaurants, stores, golf courses, tennis courts, and pools. And people love transportation by golf cart!

If you’re looking to buy or sell real estate on Fripp Island, I’m the real estate expert to see. As a REALTOR® with Homes Finder Realty Group, I’m proud of my GRI, ABR®, CRS, SRES®, and CLHMS™ designations. I offer quality professional service through experience that comes from nearly 50 years of selling real estate for over 650 families. With uncompromising attention to detail and a commitment to continuing education, I’m at the Top 1% of REALTORS nationwide. But it’s 110% of attitude and enthusiasm I give that gives my clients the BEST in service at no additional cost!

When you work with Rita Riley, real estate agent, you get a REALTOR® since 1985 with an AS degree from Manor College. My real estate career began in Pennsylvania and New Jersey before moving here with my husband of 40 years. He’s also a REALTOR and has a master’s from Bucknell University in marketing research. Together, we provide easy accessibility to our clients with a written plan of action. As Fripp Island property owners since 1992 and permanent primary homeowner since 1998, we also have successful experience owning three single-family rental homes and can help others wanting to rent out their homes.

We live here and totally involve ourselves with you. With four grown children and five grandchildren, we enjoy the uncrowded Fripp Island Beach and local activities, including fishing, boating, pickleball, and tennis. From 1987 to 1992, we explored the east coast looking for “just the right place” for our second home. We evaluated the Jersey Shore, NC, GA, and FL. Nothing else came close to the quality of life here on Fripp. We quickly changed our minds about having a second home and sold our primary home in PA to move here. Now, as locals, we can help you best with your real estate needs, because we live here all year!
