ForeShore, LLC is a property management company based in Bluffton, South Carolina that serves the Greater Hilton Head Island area including Bluffton, Okatie, and Hardeeville. Established in 2009, ForeShore started out primarily as a vacation rental company serving Hilton Head Island but quickly gained footing in the long-term residential market in Bluffton. Within the first two years of operation, we were able to reach a portfolio of 100 properties. The combination of a strategic office location in the center of the Bluffton historic district and a strong network of Realtor and Investor contacts presented a prime opportunity to advance the company into commercial real estate management. Today, ForeShore manages a portfolio of over 300 long-term and short-term residential and commercial properties.
We understand that owning an investment property can be both challenging and rewarding. ForeShore strives to maximize rental revenue through occupancy and preventative maintenance. Our management and staff realize an owner is entrusting us with a valuable asset and we give each property the attention and respect it deserves. Commitment and care are our top priorities. We offer complete transparency and direct and honest communication, allowing us to deliver a professional management experience.
ForeShore is also committed to offering an unbiased rental program strictly following all fair housing laws and guidelines. Our tenants are given access to online services to make rental payments, submit maintenance requests, review/sign leases, and monitor their accounts through a convenient mobile app making their rental experience seamless. We make sure our properties are well maintained in both their function and appearance, ensuring you can take pride in your new home.

Foreshore, LLC is owned and operated by Brian Tierney. Brian has lived and worked in the Hilton Head Island area since 1998. Originally from Pinehurst, NC, Brian studied Travel/Tourism Management at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree, Brian moved to Japan to explore the world.
Upon his return to the USA, Brian lived and worked in the Philadelphia countryside of Bucks County holding various sales and marketing positions in hotels, attractions, and a convention and visitors bureau. In 1996, Brian once again moved to Japan to continue his studies of the Japanese language and culture attending an International School in the city of Kumagaya.
After a brief stint in a Marriott brand hotel in Pinehurst, NC, Brian was recruited to Hilton Head Island to lead the sales department for the opening of a new Marriott hotel. After a successful opening, Brian started working in the golf travel business and led the opening teams for two successful companies.
From 2004-2008, Brian worked in developing real estate marketing programs throughout the Lowcountry. During that time Brian also developed a network of some of the most prominent Realtors in the Hilton Head area. Brian received his SC Property Manager in Charge license in May of 2008 and launched ForeShore, LLC the following year. The steady stream of Realtor referrals has helped Brian and his ForeShore team grow the company to approximately 325 managed properties.
Brian enjoys spending time with his two children, Joshua and Lea. After completing his residency at Walter Reed Hospital, Joshua will be moving back to the Lowcountry to continue his enlistment as a Navy Doctor. Brian’s daughter Lea is a Clemson graduate and is completing her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Georgia Southern. Brian likes spending his free time boating in the Lowcountry waters and traveling.
Josh started working at ForeShore in 2017 as a licensed property manager. When he isn’t on the job, he loves spending time with his wife and kids, and of course, sneaking in a round of golf every now and then. His education from Ohio University - along with his years of experience in construction and hospitality - has helped Josh earn the great reputation he has today. Josh understands the needs of both owners and tenants, as well as the importance of timeliness in satisfying both. He truly has been a pillar for this company and our team, and we hope to have him around for many years to come!
