My first visit to Myrtle Beach, SC was in 2008. I had just graduated from Boot Camp as a Military Police Officer in the U.S Army, and I decided I wanted to spend my military leave at the beach. Originally from Cleveland, OH, I had never visited the ocean at 20 years old. I had always heard great things about Myrtle Beach, and decided this was where I wanted to go. My first experience to the area was one of the most exciting times of my life. Being from the city, I had missed out on what the "beach life" had to offer. During my vacation, I received orders that I would be deploying to Iraq for a year in just two months. I immediately made it my goal to move to Myrtle Beach when I returned home from my tour of duty.
Keeping true to my goal, I packed everything I owned upon return from my tour in Iraq and made a one-way trip to Myrtle Beach. This move has been one of the best decisions I have made. Now I can say, Myrtle Beach truly holds some of my fondest memories. This is where I married my gorgeous wife Krista, right on the beach. We were very fortunate to make our first home purchase at a young age in Myrtle Beach where there are so many options for a first-time homebuyer. This is when I first began to take interest in the local Real Estate market.
I ultimately decided I wanted to pursue a career in the civilian sector of Law Enforcement. I attended the SC Criminal Justice Academy and began working at the Surfside Beach Police Department as a Patrolman. During my 5 years working as a Police Officer, I really enjoyed getting the opportunity to know the local business and home owners. At times, I would come across situations where I would see people at the lowest points of their life. Helping these people overcome these obstacles is what I took the most pride in as being a Police Officer and gave true meaning to the badge that I wore on my uniform daily.
Soon my goals changed, and as much as I enjoyed the endeavors of Law Enforcement, I decided to make a career change. I saw a great opportunity in the Myrtle Beach real estate. I now take pride in helping people make one of the largest purchases one will make in a lifetime. Finding my clients that perfect dream property here at the beach is such a great experience, because I remember when I was in those same shoes. I dedicate myself to learning everything I can about my clients to help them find exactly what they are looking for. I stay committed to being honest and making myself available whenever needed.
I am very excited to have a great career in Real Estate and hope that you will give me the opportunity to find you the perfect place to call home!
