Bob Montague

Bob Montague

Owner + Founder

After retiring to Seabrook Island in 1998 from New England, Bob Montague founded Reliable Property Managers in 2001. After managing several communities on Seabrook and Kiawah Islands he realized there was a need for many other services and built Reliable to the multifaceted business it is today.

When he’s not diving into a project or forecasting his next business venture, he enjoys living on the barrier islands, watching sports, especially any Boston team, and spending time with family. Everyone asks him when he will retire AGAIN? His reply, “Not anytime soon. I enjoy working with people and a staff that keeps me young.”
