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 over 28 years ago, 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. (FYI, especially if you are considering making this area your home-the 'H' in our county is silent.) My daughter, Leigha, is a College of Charleston graduate. She is an English teacher in Tokyo, Japan. My son, Ian, is a recent Coastal Carolina University graduate. He's worked in the local service industry business through college and now plans to pursue a real estate career. My husband, Bryan, is a firefighter, currently stationed in Little River.

I could not ask for a better career or real estate company! I am a dedicated high volume sales agent within a company of 200+ agents with offices in Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet as well as a home office in Conway.

It is my pleasure and privilege to provide excellent service not only to my clients but to my community. I serve on the Coastal Carolina's Association of REALTORS® Education Committee and Community Outreach Committee. I have completed Leadership training and am a graduate of Leadership CCAR. Cancer awareness is also a cause that's near and dear to my heart. I am a longtime supporter of two organizations who advocate and assist local families who are battling or have faced 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.
