I grew up in Horry County and bought my first beach property when I was a freshman in college. For thirty years after graduation from Clemson University, I was in sales and sales management positions on a state, regional or national level. My wife and I lived in Charlotte but we always maintained close ties to North Myrtle Beach. Our beach house in Cherry Grove was a favorite family destination. About 100 years after my great grandfather first crossed the Pee Dee River to relocate his family just west of Conway, I crossed the same river and came back to Horry County.In the first year of my career in real estate, I earned the Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) designation and the ePro designation. Since then, I've taken courses on short sales, Cooperative Short Sales, and foreclosures (CDPE-Certified Distressed Property Expert). Real Estate keeps changing and knowledge of property and the market is sometimes just the beginning of serving prospective buyers and sellers.If you're considering coming to the beach, give me a call. Whether you're looking for a second home, retirement home, investment property, or a primary residence, I'd love to share my knowledge of our wonderful area with you and use my expertise to help you find, negotiate and purchase that perfect property. I can even teach you to pronounce Horry just like a native. And remember... every day is a good day to be alive and living on the coast of South Carolina!
