Since 1991, we’ve understood that what we do isn’t a job, it’s our calling. We’d be honored to help you call Pawleys Island home.

Deeply Rooted

The Lachicotte (pronounced “LASH-cot”) surname is deeply rooted in Pawleys Island. It harks at
least to the early 1700s when rice cultivation was central to the family’s success. Fast forward to the 1930s when Arthur Herbert Lachicotte – known simply as “Doc” Lachicotte in these parts – took his rightful place in the region’s business community, He established the famous Pawleys Island Hammock Company and was involved in launching dozens of thriving real estate communities, retail establishments and golf courses all along the Grand Strand. In 1991, he founded the eponymously named real estate venture, The Lachicotte Company.

Today, that company remains as well acquainted as ever with the region’s history and beauty, and every agent and staff member takes satisfaction in delivering their acquired knowledge to the clients they serve. Early 2020, The Litchfield Company Real Estate and The Lachicotte Company announced the merger of their business operations. The merger integrated two of the longest-standing and most reputable real estate/rental companies on the Waccamaw Neck. The Litchfield Company recognizes the importance and value of the Lachicotte legacy in the area and plans to continue the name, as well as the two existing affiliations of CHRISTIE’S International Real Estate and NAI-Commercial. The merger with The Lachicotte Company is a natural fit, given the similarities in culture and the progressive delivery of full-service real estate sales and rentals.
