For each and every client, Tricia hopes they will look back on Island House Real Estate for years to come with a smile knowing they put their trust in the right team and were in the best hands from listing to close.


Tricia and her husband Brett, along with their three children, live on Daniel Island. Between closings, staging, photos, social media posts, newsletters, meetings, paperwork, and running comps, Tricia can be found with her husband and kids on the boat, at the beach, working on renovation projects, or in St. Maarten floating in the blue sea.

I cannot recommend Island House Real Estate strongly enough. Tricia Peterson went WAY above and beyond to help guide me through an extremely stressful relocation and home buying process during the COVID pandemic.


Her videography skills were so appreciated as she went out of her way to take video tours of multiple properties that I was unable to tour in person due to timing constraints.


She really demonstrated a level of professionalism that was above that of any other realtors with whom I have worked previously. I have strongly recommended her to everyone I know in the area and will continue to do so.
