• Four agents with Century 21 A Low Country Realty have been recognized for their commitment to excellence and client satisfaction.

Mary Hiers has been named a Centurion Award Winner, Century 21’s highest honor, awarded for exceptional sales and service. An island resident since 1979, Hiers found her passion for real estate in 2004. The former educator and business person worked with her husband, Johnny, for many years before he retired.



Deanna “Dee” Gramoy also was named a Centurion Award Winner, the second time she has achieved the honor. An islander for 25 years now, she can’t imagine living anywhere else. Gramoy is the broker in charge and owner of Century 21 A Low Country Realty.



Ivan Lazovic received the Masters Ruby Award for outstanding production as well as the Quality Service Award for excellence in client satisfaction. Lazovic grew up on Hilton Head and graduated from the College of Charleston with a double major in psychology and biology. He joined the corporate world with Verizon Business Sales before deciding to move back home and pursue a career in real estate.



Susan Asnip also is a Masters Ruby Award winner for outstanding production. Asnip and her husband, Bill, started Century 21 A Low Country Realty more than 35 years ago. Without their commitment to client relations and outstanding service this company would not have excelled the way it has.

Century 21 A Low Country Realty is located at 40 Folly Field Road on Hilton Head Island.
