Welcome to my monthly newsletter about all things James Island!

Welcome Azul Mexicana II, the very first tenant in the brand new retail development at Maybank and Woodland Shores (next to the Pour House and across from the Terrace Theatre). Open in January, Azul Mexicana is the second location for local owners who began with Azul Mexicana in Park Circle. This is not a national chain, neighbors! Open for lunch and dinner, come check out their beautiful interior, outdoor patio or look at their extensive lunch and dinner menus at AzulJamesIsland.com. I was impressed with how much they offer: the classic fajitas, burritos, quesadillas etc. plus a variety of salads and Mexican specialities.  And don't forget to bring the kids! The children's menu has 9 options all for $5.50. My family was pleased to see sopapillas and churros with ice cream.  All my best to Gerardo and staff.  James Island is a great place to live, work and play!

"We had complicated negotiations on a tight timeframe and none of it would have happened without Katie. She knew exactly the kind of home we were looking for, she was thorough, leaving no details to chance, and most importantly, she excels in communication! We wouldn't have the home that we love without her!"
