Greetings from Myrtle Beach,


Thanksgiving was busy at the Beach! The stores and restaurants were packed. It's a little quiet this week but there are holiday events scheduled throughout December and the Grand Strand is expecting a big month. See below for a sampling.


As optimism grows that the recession is gone for good and better times are here to stay, real estate sales continue to improve and several new developments have been announced. In addition, proposals for several large new attractions for the Grand Strand are being considered. Check out the details in "Optimism Fuels Big Plans".


Every few months, I've been featuring outstanding local real estate developments. This month's choice is The Caribbean Resort.


My best buy picks this month include oceanfront, oceanside and waterway houses as well as condos in The Avista, Breakers Resort, Camelot, Caribbean Resort, Dunes Village, Island Vista, Brighton and Margate at Kingston Plantation, Magnolia Pointe, Mar Vista Grande, Monterey Bay, North Beach Towers, Ocean Bay Club, Ocean Reef, Prince Resort I & II, Royale Palms, Seaside Inn, South Wind and Windy Hill Dunes.


Come see me at the beach!

Dec 1st - 3rd Annual Atalaya Holiday Celebration
