Successfully SOLD & Marketed

The month of January marks a great start to 2020 with several successfully sold and marketed properties from our team. To celebrate, we're hearing from a few of the sales associates who artfully matched buyers and sellers for these properties stretching from Myrtle Beach to Historic Georgetown. 

Relationships are invaluable to our agents. Sales associates Lindy Shealy Mickle, who represented the seller, and Denise Talbert, who represented the buyer, recently worked together on the sale of 549 Beach Bridge Road in Prince George Ocean. "Prince George is such a unique, beautiful community in the Pawleys Island area. As the sellers' agent, I really enjoyed representing the neighborhood and this exceptional oceanfront home. This was a great experience for so many reasons. Mainly because I met a great friend," Lindy says. Denise affirms that she made a great connection with her buyer as well, "I too feel I made a lifelong friend in my client from the sale of Beach Bridge. What an amazing experience and learning opportunity." 

The Church Team was also able to begin a special relationship representing the sellers of 91 Pinckney Road in DeBordieu Colony. Elisabeth Church recalls, "The owners said we were exactly what they needed for selling their home, giving them peace of mind and freedom from worry throughout the process." The Church Team and their sellers are certain to continue their new found friendship into the future.

Friendships built throughout a real estate journey last for many years to come. In North Litchfield, Darissa Thompson said, "It is such an honor to work with my seller clients on 1011 Parker Drive. For 16 years now, I have worked with them in both buying and selling different properties in our area." Likewise, Jennifer Nichols' recent sale of 410 Mooreland Drive in Myrtle Beach served her sellers who she has known and helped for several years. 

Every home has a story to tell and each new owner begins a fresh chapter in it. In celebration of buying her future residence of 614 Prince Street, sales associate Rhonda Bryant Sawyer excitedly announced on her Facebook page, "Scott and I are so excited to be moving to GEORGETOWN! We are looking forward to making some new memories in this historic house! Built between 1740-1750, it certainly is HISTORIC. We are thrilled to be the newest residents of the Sampson-Hamby-Ward House. Thanks to Toby Avant for all of your help!" Toby Avant, a sales associate from our DeBordieu office, was the listing agent for this unique and locally significant home. He says, "I was proud and honored to represent such a special home in Georgetown. I was hoping that someone from the area would purchase this beautiful home and was elated to help Rhonda (a fellow agent) and her husband Scott acquire it."

Every home is a work of art. Perry Peace was excited to represent the recently sold 48 Wallace Pate Dr S in DeBordieu Colony, reflecting that "this estate style property has a great architectural flair. It was a pleasure working with both buyer and seller." Geoff Groat held similar sentiments on the beauty of his recently sold listing, 76 Sandy Ridge Loop located in The Reserve."The listing and sale of this extraordinary residence demonstrates our strength at Peace Sotheby's International Realty to bring purchasers and sellers together," as reflected by Geoff.  

Your home is more than a building or an address. It's where you experience life, connection, and growth. The real estate team you chose to represent your property should be as exceptional as you are, and as your next chapter is going to be. In the Grand Strand, only Peace Sotheby's International Realty offers unrivaled service and limitless opportunities. Let's have a conversation, visit our Contact page or call 843.237.7711 today.

Significant Sale: 560 Myrtle Avenue

 

The historic Caledonia house on Pawleys Island, 560 Myrtle Avenue, has sold for $3,501,013. The initial asking price for this home was $3,299,000 and it sold within 30 days of being listed. The sellers were represented by Perry Peace, Sales Associate and Co-Owner of Peace Sotheby's International Realty, and the buyers were represented by Sheri Nannarello with The Dieter Company.  

 

"This is the second time that I sold this iconic Pawleys Island home," reflects Peace on this significant sale.  "I enjoy representing properties of all types. Working with unique properties is always fun." He describes this particular property as "nostalgic and wonderful" as well as "a treasure chest of family fun times and memories".  

 

Caledonia was originally built in 1842 by Robert Nesbit, who was the owner of the "Caledonia" Plantation. The home is located on a prominent dune ridge in the historic district of Pawleys Island, a community noted as one of "America's Oldest Seaside Resorts".  It features 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The home boasts breathtaking views of the beach and creek along with the many activities that access to both natural amenities afford. Over time, aspects of the home such as the larger kitchen have been updated to accommodate a modern lifestyle while still retaining the timeless charm of this classic beach home.

From generation to generation and owner to owner, Caledonia is an emblem for the ageless lowcountry lifestyle synonymous with living on Pawleys Island.

The event, sponsored by Movement Mortgage and Windermere Insurance, turned our office into an art gallery for the night featuring the work of three lowcountry artists: Pat Puckett, Braden Grafe, and Susan Moore. Agents and invited guests mingled as they enjoyed the art, company, food by Get Carried Away Catering, and drinks from Pawleys Wine & Spirits. Below is a brief video slideshow with images from throughout the evening. 

 

 

  • Helping those impacted by the hurricane and flooding in September and October, our agents came together with the community to help those in need. Members of our team contributed to relief efforts in various ways from filling sand bags to collecting supplies for the Lowcountry Food Bank and American Red Cross through the "We Rise By Lifting Others" Drive. 

 

    

 

  • Several members of our team had the opportunity to connect with other Sotheby's International Realty associates by visiting affiliate offices around the world and attending networking events over the course of 2018. We love to see our team "SIRcle the Globe" as part of a truly global network!
