It’s no surprise that Beaufort SC was named the most patriotic city in South Carolina by, an insurance comparison shopping website. With a strong military presence in the community, Beaufort SC is always quite heavy on patriotism.

Insurify puts it’s list together based on its database millions of car insurance applications. When applying, owners are asked to indicate whether they or any other driver on their policy are an active service member or a veteran. Supplied with all of the data, researchers are able to determine which community in each state has the most citizens with military service.

With Beaufort SC being the home of Parris Island, MCAS Beaufort SC and a U.S. Naval Hospital, there’s quite a heavy military presence in the area.

That, coupled with the thousands of retirees that settle in Beaufort SC helps make our town a front runner in patriotism. In addition, the town is just so military friendly practically everywhere you turn.

Beaufort is also home to thousands of military retirees whom, after being stationed here at one of our local bases, have fallen in love with the area and have decided to make it their permanent home.

Some of our REALTORS have also served in the military in the past. Currently, Zeth Jumps, REALTOR, is active duty in the US Marine Corps.
