 I recognize that one single approach does not work for everyone. Individuals have different real estate needs and goals. I don't have a scripted sales pitch, but if you become my client, I listen and use my knowledge and experience to help achieve your specific goals. I’m there for you every step of the way until closing and beyond. I represent your interests with honesty and integrity. It's my priority to exceed your expectations.

If you are reading this, there's a good chance you may have an interest in buying or selling a property in the Grand Strand area. You may be wondering how you are going to choose someone with the experience, qualifications, motivation, and skills that will be necessary to successfully assist you with this very important task.

My name is Mary Childress and I'm a full-time REALTOR® with Realty ONE Group Dockside. I moved to Myrtle Beach in 1990, from the Northern Neck area of Virginia and now call downtown Conway, SC my home. Both of my children were born and raised here and graduated from Horry County Schools. My daughter, Leigha, also graduated from College of Charleston. She currently teaches English in Japan. My son, Ian, graduated from Coastal Carolina University while working in the local service industry. He is now a full time REALTOR®.  My husband, Bryan, is a firefighter/paramedic, currently stationed in Little River.

I am a dedicated high volume sales agent within a company of 475 agents with offices in Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet, and Conway. Being consistently recognized in the top 10 for sales each year is certainly an honor among so many other professionals, but I can assure you those numbers aren’t my motivation but rather a result of working diligently on behalf of my clients.

It is my pleasure and privilege to provide excellent service not only to my clients but to my community. I am an active member of the Coastal Carolina's Association of REALTORS®  and a graduate of their Leadership Program. I am a graduate of the South Carolina Association of  REALTORS® Leadership Academy. At the local and state level, I serve on committees that promote education and ethics. Cancer awareness is also a cause that's near and dear to my heart. I am a longtime supporter and current board member of Courageous Kidz, an organization that provides resources and hope to families affected by pediatric cancer.

I am a people person. I am a no-nonsense person. I am an overachiever who thrives on being productive. As much as I enjoy my career, I take my duties and responsibilities very seriously. I know it's a leap of faith to trust someone you have never met, especially when there are so many others who claim to be the best choice. My clients get the benefits of working with a top producing agent, without giving up the personal touch and high level of communication I provide. I would love the opportunity to discuss how I can help you with your real estate needs.
