Meet Ric Hollifield. One half of the dynamic duo behind the Hilton Head Life and Beaufort Life brands, his thoughtfulness and passion are evident to all who meet him.


Ric’s history as both builder and mortgage lender give him a multifaceted industry background that translates into massive value for his clients. He brings years of skill and knowledge to the table, and is truly an expert problem-solver.

Ric began his career on “this side” of the real estate industry in 2013, almost immediately putting down roots at what was then Gateway Realty, the leader in private club living. Gateway merged several years later with Charter One Realty, the brokerage that is now the home of The Hilton Head Life, serving south of the Broad River, and The Beaufort Life, serving north.

Between Ric and partner Daniella, they are able to offer unique insider knowledge to their clients, having experienced all three of the major submarkets (Beaufort, Bluffton, and Hilton Head Island) as longterm residents. This heightened market knowledge, coupled with a diverse background, deep knowledge of the luxury market, and good old-fashioned one-on-one communication, creates a potent skill set deployed in service of an exclusive clientele.

Ric’s history as a lender allows him to provide sound guidance and advice while thinking outside the box on finding creative solutions that benefit all involved. Married with his background in building, including timber framing, this guidance extends to expert advice on remodeling and renovation to secure the greatest possible outcome.

Ric has two sons, Cody and Connor, of whom he is immensely proud, and who are each making their own names in Geospatial Intelligence and professional music, respectively.

Outside of real estate, Ric enjoys cooking, great comedy, fly fishing, spending time on the beach or in the mountains, and driving around the beautiful South Carolina Lowcountry with the top down. You may also see him and Daniella walking around downtown Beaufort with their German Shorthaired Pointer, Daisy.

Whether you are interested in a riverfront estate, an oceanfront cash-flowing rental property, a luxury lock-and-leave condominium, or a home steeped in Southern history, Ric + Daniella are ready to show you the finest, most exclusive listings, with a constant focus on your personal taste and needs. As your dedicated team, you can rely on them to help you realize the full potential of your investment, both when making your purchase, and when it comes time to market and sell. No one is better prepared to serve you.
