Broker Associate with Over 20 Years Experience helping clients with vacation properties & homes in the South Strand area and all of Horry & Georgetown Counties!
Experienced, knowledgeable, dedicated, professional...
Since 1999, I have been helping clients buy and sell property in the Myrtle Beach, SC area with outstanding client service and a personal touch. Real estate can be stressful, but choosing an experienced, knowledgeable and compassionate agent to help you navigate the terrain will make your experience a positive one. Real estate is my full-time business and helping folks achieve their housing goals is something that I am very passionate about. I consider myself a home matchmaker. Listening to your home needs and getting you there is what I do best. I will find you the perfect home and when your goals change, I will market, sell and help you transition into your next home. From day one, I will be there for you--the way it should be. I treat my clients like family so expect to be greeted with a smile and a hug! When I am not helping folks find their "place at the beach," I can be found in the yard with my dogs, cats, and fancy birds.

“Cheryl is ‘the best’. Unbeatable service and follow-up.

“As a Pennsylvania real estate attorney charged with managing a land use and acquisition company, I have the opportunity to buy, sell and manage a plethora of properties, but never with such exhaustive and committed assistance as provided by Cheryl Christopher. She is a true professional. Cheryl is a proficient and productive realtor whom I trust implicitly. I am convinced that nobody knows ‘the beach’ like Cheryl does.” ~ Craig T. Edwards, Esquire, Quakertown PA
“This is very simple, you will not find a more professional or willing to go out of her way agent! My wife and I have worked with Cheryl for over 4 years. She has been everything we could have wanted in an agent. Cheryl never once put pressure on us. She stuck with us and gave help every time we asked. I can't explain in words how grateful I have been to meet Cheryl. Do yourself a huge favor: HIRE CHERYL AS YOUR AGENT! Trust me when I tell you, don't use any other agent, Cheryl Christopher is the ONLY realtor you will ever need. She is beyond helpful, professional, and dedicated to you. I've recommended her to two other families, and I will be using her for my next purchase.” ~Ken & Debbie Harden, Laplata MD
“Ms. Christopher has superior knowledge of the market and what it takes to successfully buy and sell property. She assisted us in the sale of one home and the purchase of another. She has shown more help than any other realtor that I've used. Extremely good and highly recommended!” ~ Roy & Vickie Almaroad, Kingsport TN
“I am impressed with Cheryl’s professionalism and her ability in dealing with people. Cheryl was thoughtful, considerate, respectful and VERY knowledgeable. She was very attentive to our needs and concerns and kept us informed during the entire process. All realtors should have the qualities Cheryl possesses: attentiveness, honesty and attention to detail. I felt that she always had my best interest in mind.” ~ Karen & Joe Yandek, Brunswick OH
“Always professional, always knowledgeable, courteous, a lovely personality, and worked tirelessly on our behalf as we searched for ‘the one’ over a 3 year period. Cheryl kept us in the loop with new listings and frequent calls and emails. She always followed through with our requests, quickly found answers to our questions, and in the purchase process, was an excellent negotiator for us. This is not hyperbole; Cheryl will serve you well in any real estate matter. My husband and I recommend her highly, with no reservations. We have been completely satisfied with all aspects of this longtime search for the perfect place.” ~ Carole & Bob Dwyer, Orchard Park NY
“Cheryl Christopher acted as our agent for selling our beach house on Ocean Boulevard in Surfside Beach, and we want to commend her for the really superb job she did with the sale. Cheryl did everything we expected and much more. She was attentive and right on top of every detail in the somewhat complicated sale. All of our many questions were answered immediately, and we felt as though we had someone on our side at all time. In short, we couldn't be happier with the way Cheryl represented us in this sale from start to finish. We feel her conduct and expertise reflects great credit upon herself and the real estate industry.” ~ Allen & Peggy Ryals, Murrells Inlet SC

“She was not pushy and did not try to talk us into buying. Also answered all questions and was extremely helpful when we were doing the contract negotiating and making an offer to buy. And when we had the inspection before the closing, she made sure all items found needing to be "fixed" as a result of the inspection were completed Cheryl gave us an excellent experience in our home buying process!” ~Joyce & Larry Pepple, Frederick MD
“Absolutely, 100% satisfied. Cheryl was helpful from Day 1. She did everything we asked of her, and more. If I am ever in the market for another property in the area, she will be my first call.” ~ Jason & Kimberly Newsome, Turbeville SC
“Cheryl was recommended by one of your former clients. She was personable and professional. I am pleased to have done business with her!” ~ Carol McCormick, Carrollton VA
“You can't enhance perfection. Cheryl has gone over and beyond any realtor I know (and I know a few). She has made this whole process enjoyable. She originally helped us buy our beach house and helped us sell it when the time came. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her in the future.” ~ Pat Pajaron & Marie Kalantzis, Stoneham MA
“She was very patient and did not pressure us at all; we truly appreciated that. I felt very confident in working with her, not only because of her real estate background, but also since she has also been a resident of Surfside for so long. I could not have asked for a better agent!!!” ~ Ken and Christine Dodge, Litchfield NH
