It is always interesting for me to see Luxury Homes in other parts of the country. California has its share of lovely homes, but there is something about the South - and Charleston in particular - that we simply do not have here.

I enjoy the comments about Jeff Gordon and his ex-wife! My Daddy told me to "slow down and live". Maybe I should have "sped up and lived in Charleston"!!

You have some of the most gorgeous houses in Charleston. I'm in California like Bob and I totally agree with him that our houses are nice, but yours have a wonderful southern charm.
