I was born in the upstate of S.C. where my shoes tracked in red clay and my blood ran orange as a 3rd generation Clemson fan. My parents dragged me (kicking and screaming) to Myrtle Beach while I was in high school. In Myrtle Beach I traded clay for beach sand, surfing, scuba diving and, of course, girl watching. I graduated Myrtle Beach High School, attended Coastal Carolina College and graduated USC. After college I became a 1st responder with Horry County EMS. For the past 20 years I've been involved with the real estate and home building industry. My wife, Lori (one of the girls I used to watch on the beach), and I work together as a team to make sure your desires are satisfied and your expectations are exceeded when buying or selling your property. Here are some of the things we can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! Your also want someone who will look out for your best interests. As a former builder and licensed mechanical contractor I can help make sure the home you fall in love with will bring you happiness for years to come.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Buying or selling Most transactions will involve a home inspection. Many sales fall apart due due to the home inspection and buyer's and seller's unrealistic expectations when it comes to repairs. Thanks to our negotiating skills and our repair resources from our home building business we have had great success in keeping even difficult transactions together all the way from contract to closing.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. Lori and I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast. Be sure to ask about seeing your home from the air.
