Little Oak Island
Little Oak Island is the only gated neighborhood in the Folly area. The Island features homes and condos with a community pool and tennis courts. Most of the Island’s residents live there full time, and because vacation rentals are not allowed, there is a real neighborhood feel. The Island is a short bike ride to Folly and a convenient drive into James Island, West Ashley, and downtown Charleston. Most of the homes have tidal creek docks with boat lifts, and great views are the rule on Little Oak Island.

Laurie Hull grew up in Ohio and had a very successful career in the advertising business working as Director of Account Services for one of the largest ad agencies in the eastern United States. She left Ohio in 1994 and traveled all over the country, hiking the mountains and canyons, visiting friends and exploring key cities, looking for her new place to call home. After her travels and spending a year working in Denver, CO she needed to move back east, closer to family. Laurie moved from Denver to Charleston in 1995 after taking a job with Rawle Murdy, Associates and lived in Isle of Palms for a year. She fell in love with Charleston and bought her home in Folly Beach in 1996. “There is no other place quite like Charleston. I fell in love with the lush history, beautiful architecture and sub-tropical climate. The people are just so friendly and relaxed. It was wonderful to work in the city and go home to Folly Beach, my little island oasis.” Laurie and her husband Sam, a native of Folly Beach, also raised their daughter, Samantha, to appreciate the island lifestyle and growing historical city. They go boating and spend hours walking the beaches hunting for fossils, artifacts and beach treasures. They all love to fish, crab and float through the beautiful rivers and creeks of the Lowcountry.
Laurie began her real estate career in 2004. Her mother and father both had successful careers in real estate and with her vast experience in marketing and communications, it seemed like a natural second career. Her strengths begin with her first hand, in depth knowledge of the market area. Over the years, Laurie has served as Board President of the Mariners Cay Marina Council of Co-Owners, former President of the Folly Beach Parks Recreation Committee, as well as a former member of Folly Beach City Council. She is principled, realistic and honest. “I focus on my clients individual needs, I’m a good listener and realize that every real estate decision is a financial investment decision.” Whether you need to sell or buy, she will help you make solid, informed decisions.
