Pawleys Island, SC Real Estate News

I really appreciate this article that the Myrtle Beach Sun News wrote about the real estate industry. Myself along with other top real estate professionals all pitched in to help compose the article. Now that I am a Realtor, I appreciate now more than ever, feed back from other professionals and takes on what is working to boost sales. I have steadily seen and increase in home staging and creative presentations in the Pawleys Island real estate, Myrtle Beach Real Estate and Murrells Inlet Real Estate areas. What are you doing differently to sell, list or buy homes in your area that you may not have done in the past? What's working for you? Enjoy the article! http://www.thesunnews.com/2010/05/02/1450445/fresh-incentives-to-boost-sales.html

I start this article with great pride and joy! One year ago, a magnificent group of local Pawleys Island, SC volunteers and I started the first Annual St. Christopher's Children 5k Race. Starting a 5k charity based race was no easy task, but we were all up for the challenge! With my co-race coordinator Melissa Dunn and me, Jennifer Grant, We tackled what seemed to be the impossible last year. We put together a first ever 5k race in 6 weeks. We knew this would be an arduous task, but thinking of all the abused, abandoned and needy children right in our own Pawleys Island/Georgetown county area, kept us fueled! We had an amazing event, especially considering the time given. We had tremendous outpouring from our community sponsor's. We called on them and they answered!! I believe we had cl...

I love the laid back lifestyle Pawleys Island has to offer. With all the stress and strain of the world, it just seems a little different here in our little area of the world. Sure, we are all busy, but it seems like the people that live in Pawleys Island know how to slow down and enjoy the important things in life. The pure grandeur and beauty the ocean offers, a quiet walk or hard jog down the beach, people of all ages, races, shapes and size laid back soaking up the sun, or the little widow reading her book by the sea , on to the squeals and giggles of children dancing and playing on the beach! We are truly blessed to live in Pawleys Island. I would suggest to anyone looking to vacation, invest or purchase real estate in Pawleys Island, SC this is a wonderful place to live! I hopeyou...

Hi All, I don't usually share many links, but I read a great article this morning on how to help prevent people from stealing your content, or at the very least to help sway them not to. It's one thing to re-order words change things up because there is only so much you can write about a particular area for instance, like the history of a location or if it's a article you are passing along as a resource to your clients, but I like to at least credit the author if applicable. The first paragraph in the article is so dead on. It talks about how you bust your butt, straining your brain, days/months of researching like crazy and pulling all nighters to get your content and ideas up, then someone that is too lazy to do their own work, comes along and copies what you've worked so hard to prod...

Located just south of Myrtle Beach and North of beautiful Charleston is Pawley's Island of South Carolina.  It's a very historic coastal area and serves as the oldest resort destination on the coast.  The area allows you to enjoy your vacation without all the traffic, sounds, and chaos of larger beach areas.  Pawley's Island vacations are very tranquil and offer fun for the whole family. Pawley's Island vacations are a great way to enjoy life to its fullest.  They are perfect for family vacations, weekend retreats, fishing trips, golf vacations, and much more.  The residents and guests here really enjoy the large assortment of family activities and lack of commercialism on the beachfront.  When vacationing here, you can look forward to endless adventures and unforgettable memories.

I was sitting here this morning thinking what should I blog about? As I was trying to concentrate my kids were running around the house, my 3 year old climbing all over the top of me and then I hear it..."Mom, let's go to the beach!" I paused, realizing I was too late for church this morning, thinking to myself, hello...we live right here, 1.5 miles away from one of the most gorgeous beaches and truly a celebration of what God has given us! Packing up now and just thinking how blessed I am to live in such a beautiful and breath taking area. If you or a client is looking to purchase real estate in Pawleys Island, I highly recommend this area. How lucky are we? Pawleys Island, known as "Arrogantly Shabby" still remains a leisurely existence. Pawleys is still known for its laid back atmosp...

As some of you know I have been working on obtaining my real estate license in South Carolina. I am so pleased to say the journey is finally close to being done!! I went to real estate school in Murrells Inlet, SC and passed the course. Wow, that is a lot of real estate information to take absorb in a couple of weeks time! I have signed with Keller Williams of Murrells Inlet. We learned everything from home buying, home selling, real estate investing, property managment and everything in between. I like to describe it as taking a mini crash course in law. Never the less, I learned so much. I have been blogging away on 3 serparate Pawleys Island Real Estate blogs and working continuously on my website's. Yes, website(s).

As I am moving along with my progess to sell real estate in Pawleys Island and Mrytle Beach, I find myself flooded with decisions. I have been working like crazy writing content about Pawleys Island, Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet. I've always heard content is king!  I have a question for all you experienced Realtors. What have you found to be the best cell phone to use? I have a blackberry curve, but have been contemplating the new IPhone. I will be heavily involved in online marketing through my website, so I wanted your opinions...tried and true on what REALLY works the best for you all. The journey continues and I start real estate class on March 15th! Thanks in advance for any advice! Jennifer Grant

Pawleys Island Homes for sale Pawleys Island, SC has been a place of true luxury relaxed living. Most of the real estate markets in the country have felt the effects of the economic down turn and price have went down significantly. Pawleys Island Homes for sale have stayed pretty stable as far as pricing. The area has not had nearly as many foreclosures as other parts of the Myrtle Beach area. The very few Pawleys Island Foreclosures come on the market and generally sell very quickly. Myrtle Beach Foreclosures Myrtle Beach Condos Myrtle Beach Real estate
