Phoebe HoasterAssociate Broker
“My biggest goal is guide Buyers and Sellers with industry experience, market knowledge, and trustworthy service to make sure they are at ease and happy during the real estate process.”
Phoebe grew up in Marietta (Atlanta). Phoebe is a second-generation REALTOR® with 40 years in the business of helping people buy and sell real estate.
Relocating from Atlanta to St. Simons Island in 1995, Phoebe continues to be one of the top producers in the Golden Isles, but is enjoying the slower pace of life in Coastal Georgia and an improved balance between her personal and her professional life. Phoebe works as a team with her husband, Gene.
"We moved to Saint Simons Island 22 years ago; Gene grew up on Saint Simons and we were excited at the chance to live on the Georgia Coast. Gene and I have been married for 32 years - it´s been great, he´s my best friend! He’s a funny man who loves to laugh; he’s full of life, kind, and tender hearted. I´ve been truly blessed."
As a former Owner and Managing Broker of a RE/MAX office in Marietta, Georgia, Phoebe is no stranger to the demands of a busy, high-profile real estate office. Now she is happy to pass on the Managing Broker responsibilities to focus on what she does and enjoys best: helping people with all their real estate needs.
"It doesn´t matter if it´s a small home, first time home, or a second home, a vacation home, condo, or lot, it´s still a dream, and I love to help people achieve their dreams; it´s thrilling to me!"
In the early 90's, Phoebe ranked among the Top 1% of all REALTORS® in the country for five consecutive years and today she ranks in the top 5 selling Realtors in the Golden Isles Association of Realtors.
"I´ve been in Real Estate since 1977 and I have seen interest rates as high as 18% - ARMs with negative amortization, you name it I´ve seen it. I remember we would sell FHA & VA Loan Assumptions, but that´s been awhile! My first job was with the Jack W. Boone Company; I was trained by Jack. Then I went to work with Coldwell Banker & trained with John Barnes and Marilyn Glasser. Over the years I´ve been to Floyd Wickman "Sweathogs" three times, Tommy Hopkins, Zig Ziglar; loved it! I´d pull my son out of school to see various motivational speakers, Lou Holtz, spots figures, etc; I am a sponge for information and inspiration. I´m very spiritual and believe we receive synergy from others who share their gifts with us."
When she's not working with clients, spending time with her family or involved with St Simons Community Church, Phoebe enjoys painting, sculpting and traveling . . . especially to Africa! She has traveled to many places all over the world - Haiti, France, Italy, Switzerland, Mexico, and all over the US as well - the Grand Canyon, California, New York - can you tell she loves to travel?
"I´m very active with St Simons Community Church and involved with the Mission Trips. I have been blessed to join our Mission Team on trips to Africa, Haiti, Nicaragua, and closer to home to Biloxi, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. We are also very devoted to the Relay for Life event and this year our office raised $18,000 for the American Cancer Society."
Phoebe and Gene reside on the Island with their dogs Snoopy and Happy. The Hoasters have four children and nine grand-children and 11 great-grands in whom they take great pride and joy.
"My hobbies are gardening and photography. I love repotting plants and the thrill of a re-blooming orchid! I am a self-taught photographer; it started with my son and has continued on with homes, flowers, nature, grandchildren; you name it and I´ve taken a picture of it! My grandchildren affectionately call me Flash Grandma.
Photos of African animals cover the walls in my office; a huge photo of the Avenue of the Live-Oaks hangs in our reception area. We are all so Blessed to live on Saint Simons Island! I´m not happy unless I am juggling listings & sales, friends, family, and I am a grandmother of 11 and 4 great-grands so needless to say I stay busy. I love helping people realize their Dream; that´s what it´s all about!
