    Every business has a beginning, and I can honestly say that I fell into all this rather inadvertently. As retirement neared from my IT career, I began to ask myself more crucial introspective questions. "Will I be happy just melting in the sand or will I want to create something new and unique ?"

    I thought about whether my money would keep up with the Fed's insatiable thirst to keep printing currency. These two factors led me to the road that I travel today.

    I have made it my driving sole purpose to educate myself about finances, tax code, and legal structures. This is what I passionately refer to as : "Concurring the Final Frontier". The crazy thing is that I found that I have a real interest in all this dry stuff. Personally, I never knew that I had it in me.
    As I began to explore my options and things that I felt comfortable with, the compass kept pointing back to real estate investing for being the best return for my money that I also had some control over.

    So with that said and after many years of exploring the Myrtle Beach market, I bought my first two vacation rentals back in 2018 and I never looked back. My two properties cash-flow over 23% annually and are continuing to improve.

    I have since shared my knowledge and experiences with other Myrtle Beach Real Estate Investors, helping them evaluate and seek profit generating investments while aiding them in structuring their businesses in a sound manner.
    I love to help educate potential investors in this market and I my goal- vision is to someday be a truly valuable resource for people looking to start their investments in Horry County's growing market.

    My Experience

    • As a Myrtle Beach transplant and a seasoned real estate investor, I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me and I strive every day to exceed their expectations. Although I am a new realtor in the Myrtle Beach market; I have personally acquired both commercial and vacation rental properties for 6 years now in Horry County. My background is in IT technologies with over 35 years experience retiring as an IT director for a large continuing care/medical facility in Asheville NC. I learned early on how to leverage internet technologies in real estate and now I have grown from computer nerd to financial nerd leveraging banks, legal entities and tax structures. As a realtor, I have helped others assess and acquire generous cash-flowing properties up and down the grand-strand and I love what I do. Guiding people to their dream of passive income and helping them to navigate that process is incredibly rewarding for me. On weekends, I can be found showing and assessing properties or lending a hand to one of Horry Countys many charitable functions. Beach life suits me well and I invite you to join me.

    To blog or not to blog , that is the question:Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to sufferThe slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,Or to take arms against a sea of troublesAnd by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,No more; and by a sleep to say we endThe heart-ache and the thousand natural shocksThat flesh is heir to: 'tis a consummationDevoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub:For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,When we have shuffl...
