The Future is Here – Indigo Park


August 6, 2015 7:15 pm

Earlier this month Dyal Compass held a series of educational seminars that were offered to the Kiawah Island residents and to real estate (both KIRE and MLS) brokers. The program featured three speakers who each discussed green trends, green products and finally how the Indigo Park homes are incorporating both. Stuart Williams, of Endobility, spoke first about trends. Mr. Williams explained how today’s millenniums do not care about only money. It is more important to them to make an impact and to make the world a better place. They care about their health and their environment. They tend to prefer to live in smaller spaces – no Mac Mansion for them. Williams quoted Steve Jobs, “here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently—they are not fond of rules. You can quote them, you can disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do” and Williams explained there is a fair share of these “crazy ones” in the millennial crowd. Ryan Moulton of Kiawah Resorts, the property management company who handles the rentals for the Indigo Park homes, spoke of the popularity of these particular homes. Millenniums, he explained, are asking for LEED certified 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes to rent. With Indigo Park homes, the demand is high, the rental income is high and the renters’ return rate is high. The millennium generation feels good about renting this type of home and they are our future. The future is in Indigo Park on Kiawah Island. Due to the high demand for Indigo Park homes, Dyal Compass is in the process of building three more homes; two Palmetto (five bedroom) models and one Camellia (four bedroom) model. Come visit us and see our progress – Labor Day weekend Sept 5th 12:00pm to 4:00pm in Indigo Park in Kiawah Island, SC. Celebrity chefs will preparing farm-to-table, organic food…live like the Milleniums – healthy food and healthy home. Please contact us with any questions: info@Dyalcompass.com

New York Times – Cities for Tomorrow


July 27, 2015 4:45 pm

DyalCompass attended the Cities for Tomorrow Conference at the New York Times Center in New York City in July. Bjarke Ingels, from BIG, the architectural firm designing the fourth tower at the World Trade Center was one of the many interesting speakers. Mr. Ingels spoke of community – of addressing nature and of design. One does not build just a pretty building, it must honor nature, it must be built well, it must be an acknowledgment to nature’s tempers, it must nod to climate warming, it must create collision opportunities for the community to meet. I could completely relate to what he was saying. All of DyalCompass’s projects boast all of those attributes. Indigo Park in Kiawah Island, SC is all of that. Indigo Park wants to lead by example. More and more the public is not just thinking of their needs but the needs of the community and the planet earth as the whole picture. Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation, spoke of the ‘100 Resilient Cities’. Kiawah Island’s ‘big city’ neighbor, Charleston, SC has applied to be one of these most noted cities in the world. The factors that determine a resilient city include: inclusiveness –a sense of shared ownership; integration -bringing together a range of distinct systems and institutions; a robust system–well conceived constructed and managed systems; redundancy –spare capacity purposively created to accommodate disruption. The four ‘ingredients’ for essential dimensions in resilience are: Health & Well Being, Economy & Society, Infrastructure & Environment and Leadership & Strategy. Indigo Park leads the way in all four of these essential dimensions. More and more the public, the mayors, and city leaders are seeing the value of these dimensions. To learn more, come visit us in Indigo Park on Kiawah Island Saturday, September 5th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm for a celebrity organic farm to table tasting and see the organic homes made of pure resilience.

When one operates with an attitude of how can I help? it breeds wellness. It honors the environment. It honors our fellow citizens. A simple hello starts a sense of connection. In the following weeks let all of us make an effort to say hello. To connect, to honor.

DyalCompass is praying for Charleston our beloved city.

A Call To Action


June 3, 2015 2:30 pm

In the course of history there comes a time when humanity is called upon to shift to a new level of consciousness. That moment has happened again and again regarding our environment and doing life, honoring our earth. DyalCompass recently attended the TedWomen conference in California. I was fortunate enough to meet Jimmy Carter, Margaret Heffernan and Mary Robinson. All three addressed the importance of moving forward on honoring the climate. We should incentivize all companies, all people to believe, if they don’t already, do it on their own. They were shocked when I told them that the local real estate brokerage house incentivized the brokers to sell an inferior product versus the LEED homes in Indigo Park. Obviously they have not read Margaret Heffernan’s book Willful Blindness. The book explains that the people who run business often ignore the obvious – with consequences as dire as the global financial crisis and similar environmental crisis. As Jimmy Carter spoke, the crowd of people who care grows. It is the ones who operate as we instead of I. That is short sighted. The long journey is always the right one. Helping others as we walk through life. Leaving a better planet behind then the one before. I thank my contractors, my customers and those the brokers who have sold Indigo Park in Kiawah Island ,SC- a conscience (beautiful)
