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.
