From the early 1970's, John Reed and his company have played a vital role in the ongoing development of Hilton Head and the growth of Bluffton. 

To this day, John Reed is considered a pioneer in the field of community development and is one of few who are credited for the area's transformation from a fledgeling coastal resort area into a premier destination with global acclaim.

Over the last 30 years the Reed Group has put its knowledge and love of the area to work, creating six of the Lowcountry's finest private communities: Hampton Lake, May River Preserve, Hampton Hall, Berkeley Hall, Belfair and Colleton River Plantation. With more than three decades of innovation and an unparalleled commitment to excellence, The Reed Group continues to build on its achievements year after year.

In 2012 the Reed Group expanded their focus beyond local community development. Utilizing John Reed's years of experience alongside a new partnership team, several new companies were formed under the Reed name.

Now, five years later, they offer a wide array of services and partnership opportunities throughout the Southeast; from consulting services for all phases of community development including conceptualization through operations to complete sales and marketing management. The Reed Group doesn't just build communities; they help to enrich lives and fulfill dreams by bringing projects to fruition and transitioning visions to reality.
