Irene Brinkmann


Welcome to the great state of SC!, Here in the Myrtle Beach area you can find a variety of lifestyle choices and price ranges to suit your budget. With SC low residential property taxes you can afford more house with your hard earned money! I have been involved in Real Estate for over 25 years, buying, selling and moving multiple times allowed me to experience the benefit of a Realtor who is on your side.

I will communicate with you for however long it takes before you have a chance to come down for yourself to check out some of the homes you have been watching from afar. I can check them out for you and let you know if it is worth the trip to look.  No need for you to talk to multiple Realtors about all the homes you are interested in, call me and I will set up the appointments and find the details and show them all to you.

Once you narrow things down we will together discuss the pros and cons. Sometimes it only takes a few visits before the right house shows up. Other times a few years. 

If you live locally, wish to sell and find something different, I would be happy to help you out as well. I will spend the time it takes to help you navigate the selling and buying process.

Give me a call, send me a text or an email and I will go to work for you. 843-712-9989!

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information.

I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"I met Irene Brinkmann in August 2014. She responded to my initial inquiry regarding a property for sale in Surfside Beach. She took the time to contact the owners who allowed her to enter the property and take videos, and that prompted my significant other and me to make the trip from Washington, DC to the Grand Strand. Upon our arrival, Irene met us with an itinerary and we toured many properties. She was very attentive to what we wanted in the way of a home and after we decided not to make a move, she stayed in touch with us for three years, sending listings that she thought might interest us. When we found a listing that matched some criteria, she entered the property and conducted a Facetime tour for us and then made an appointment for us to see the house, put in an offer, get inspections and helped us locate a good settlement attorney. We now live in that home in Pawleys Island, and when and if the time comes to sell or buy another property, she will be our agent."
