Buyer Testimonials

Compass Cove Pinnacle, Myrtle Beach

Gene is THE best realtor at Myrtle Beach, based on my own experience. He provided excellent services and insiders' insights that was supported by his expertise and many years experience with Myrtle Beach Real Estate. He and his team are very professional and efficient. We closed on an oceanfront unit in January without actually seeing the unit. Instead Gene took many pictures and provided his comments after he carefully checked the unit for us. He has earned the trust through his thorough work. Every time when we asked income information from different units, actually it was a lot of requests, they obtained the information quickly and sent back immediately, which is critical for our decision making. Overall, their team services was very impressive and they are THE best.

Edgewater at Barefoot Resort, North Myrtle Beach

Gene is extremely knowledgeable about the region, market, and other variables, and works 100% for your best interests. He is very responsive, and has a great team supporting him. It was enjoyable working with Gene, and we plan to do so again for our next purchase. I highly recommend Gene Carter.

Michael & Bonnie M - 2017

The Island, Myrtle Beach

Gene worked with us for about six months helping us look for a condo in the Myrtle Beach area. Throughout the entire process, Gene always answered every phone call and every email. He was able to provide his expertise that comes from years in the real estate industry. In the end, we were able to purchase the perfect condo. Would highly recommend to anyone whether it is to purchase or sell real estate.

Robert & Regina L - 2017

Sea Watch Resort, Myrtle Beach

This is the second purchase in two years that Gene has helped me with, and there simply are not enough words that can describe how helpful - and EASY - he and his team made the whole process. I live 5 hours away, and to buy the properties and through the whole transaction like I did simply could not have been done without having Gene there with his knowledge and expertise to make it happen. Additionally, he makes every step in the process easier than it could be, from choosing inspectors, choosing closing agents, making connections, literally if you can think of it, he has a list for it and can make a connection or will do it for you! Gene came highly recommended (again, from 5 hours away) and I'm thankful for it -- and I know I would recommend him and his team without any hesitation!.

North Tower at Barefoot Resort, North Myrtle Beach

Gene Carter was excellent in closing our purchase on our condo. We needed help with the possibility of needing a mortgage, no problem for Gene. We needed an extension on our closing date Gene handled it with ease. Always answered his phone, imagine that. We have purchased several properties in our lifetime and never had an agent as dedicated as Gene and his staff.

David and Judith M - 2017

Grand Atlantic, Myrtle Beach

Living 500 miles from Myrtle Beach and not knowing anyone in the area, I was concerned about finding a knowledgeable, trustworthy agent for our search for an oceanfront condo. After talking with many agents on the phone, we decided Gene was best qualified to help us find the right property. What a great choice we made! After several emails and phone conversations Gene was able to educate us on the Myrtle Beach market and we planned a visit to look at condos. Gene had logically planned our visit to look at over two dozen condos. We very efficiently looked at each condo and Gene was able to give us details of the area and building for each condo. His length of service in the area is invaluable! He presented us with a spec sheet for each condo and a few ROI sheets on condos that met our search criteria. Gene's professional, logical style helped us to choose our condo in the first day of our visit. Gene gave us his undivided attention the entire time he was showing us properties. Gene was helpful through all stages of buying our property and went out of his way to help us several times. He was also very willing to answer my many and unique questions. I truly believe we could not have found a better agent to help us find our property!

Mark and Coleen M - 2016

Spinetail Drive, North Myrtle Beach

Gene without question is the best realtor we have worked with. He covers all the basis; knowledge of the local market and trends; works very hard and is always on top of your deal and always available; and his staff is very competent and thorough.

John K - 2016

Sea Watch Resort, Myrtle Beach

Actually I was hoping to fill out a survey regarding my experience with Gene and the team. I was so impressed with Gene's professionalism and knowledge of the area. I would definitely recommend him to friends if they are searching for a condo/house/property in the area. Not only was Gene professional, he was also very personable and extremely helpful. During the week after Christmas when many people are on vacation, he took the time to show my wife and I several different condos. I appreciate all of Gene and Pam's efforts to make this an enjoyable experience. Thank You Very Much,

Jim F - 2016

Sea Watch Resort, Myrtle Beach

Gene Carter is the consummate professional. He works hard and efficiently, without being pushy. I would definitely recommend him. He has worked the Myrtle Beach area for decades and is extremely knowledgeable. He has the experience, expertise, and skill to put a deal together.

Brad M - 2015

Dunes Village Resort, Myrtle Beach

Gene is an amazing agent with a wealth of knowledge on every property available on the Grand Strand. As an investor, I am very interested in expenses and returns. Gene has a financial model that let's you predict rate of return based on a very accurate assessment of costs. In addition, he will put in the required energy (and then some) to meet all a client's needs. Finally, he produces a high value newsletter that really highlights what is happening on the coast. All in all, Gene provides significant value above and beyond what typical agents provide in the market!

Joe M - 2015

Dunes Village Resort, Myrtle Beach

Gene helped us to buy a beach front condo in Myrtle Beach. He is very helpful and patient during entire process. Since we are distance buyers, Gene spend lots of time for us taking a lot of pictures for the condo units we are interested in. We compared several units, and finally purchased one. We are very satisfied with our buying experience with Gene.

Ying L & Larry Z - 2015

The Horizon at 77th, Myrtle Beach

Gene and his team were great in all aspects of helping us purchase our condo in North Myrtle beach. We are from out of state and were not familiar with the purchasing process. Gene and his team were very patient with all of our questions and gave accurate answers. Through our long distance relationship, we felt comfortable with the whole process.

Tom & Trish V - 2015

Dunes Village Resort, Myrtle Beach

Gene is well organized and is expert in Myrtle Beach real estate. He helped us through the entire process so that it was smooth and trouble free. He provided all the information we required for an informed decision.

Jim & Donna H - 2015

Caribbean Resort, Myrtle Beach

Gene was very helpful in my purchase of a three bedroom condo in the Caribbean Resort in Myrtle Beach. I first called Gene inquiring on a three bedroom that was listed for sale in his newsletter. I explained to Gene I already own a two bedroom in that building and looking to upgrade. Gene explained to me the three bedroom that was for sale was the exact same layout I already own with the exception of the third bedroom. Gene told me to wait for a three bedroom corner unit as the living room and balcony’s (the one I purchased has two) are much larger and I would enjoy the extra room. So I waited for that floor plan to be listed then Gene helped me negotiate a fair deal and I closed in May of 2015. Thanks to Gene’s knowledge of the building I now own a much nicer condo and could not be happier. A true professional Gene could have just sold me a three bedroom but he waited for the perfect one for our family.

Chris C - 2015

Ocean Marsh, North Myrtle Beach

Gene and his staff were extremely professional. Gene really knew the area, the market, and was able to guide us to the exact property we were looking to purchase. This entire experience could not have gone better. We plan on using Gene for any and all of our future real estate needs in the Myrtle Beach area. Thank you Gene!

Tom and Deena B - 2015

Compass Cove Pinnacle & Dunes Village, Myrtle Beach

Gene is a very knowledgeable agent. He took time to show many beach condos with in our range. He also provided us the statistics. He is honest agent. We will definitely have him to be our agent if we want to buy beach condo in the future.

Joe and Lily Y - 2015

Gene is the most knowledgeable realtor we have ever met/done business with in the whole Myrtle Beach area. he is quick to response, yet very detailed, very professional and a perfectionist! it was a great pleasure to work with him. by the way, this is second time we brought condo from him. if we sell later on, he is the one to ask for help for sure. our friends are happy with him to regarding buying and selling in Myrtle Beach.

Bei T & Jian Z - 2015

Ocean Forest, Myrtle Beach, SC

As an active Nebraska real estate professional myself, this is a RAVE review. Gene & his team were knowledgeable, courteous, patient, sharp and helpful. They knew the answers or got the answers we needed to make our decisions. I will confidently send anyone with real estate needs to Gene. And if anyone is interested in a vacation rental while you're hunting your home, we bought this as a 2nd home on the beach. We're renting it when we're not there. You can go to then look at Ocean Forest D 206.

Louella Mack-Modlin - 2015

Caribbean Resort II, Myrtle Beach

When it comes to Myrtle Beach real estate Gene Carter is the man. Just visit his website and you will see what I am talking about. They come no better than Gene. He helped me find a great oceanfront condo and we closed at $35,000 below market. His local knowledge is outstanding. Gene will make sure you are taken care of and is responsive to your every need.

Steve & Jann S - 2015

North Beach Towers, North Myrtle Beach

Gene was extremely knowledgeable and any questions we asked he answered in depth. We would highly recommend him to others!! My daughter and I went down to check out the area in May and find a realtor we liked. When we met Gene I immediately knew he would be perfect and that he would be able to answer the many questions I knew my husband would have! I told Gene that my husband and I would not be returning until the fall. Gene was very patient but we never felt forgotten. When I returned to myrtle beach with my husband the match was perfect! Every question Jim asked, Gene answered! Questions ranging from the basic knowledge of Myrtle Beach to extensive knowledge of real estate property, fees, rental income etc. Gene never hesitated and if we asked for more information he provided it by the next day! When we came back home to New York we told our friends about our experience and we are hoping they also buy their vacation homes there. If they do we would highly recommend using Gene!

Jim and Christine D - 2014

Grande Dunes-Marina Inn, Myrtle Beach

Gene is very knowledgeable about Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas. He was very prompt in answering my questions (which were many :) ) I am a Real Estate Agent so impressing me was not an easy task... I spoke to three agents (one was a referral) over the phone before I decided to work with Gene. In nineteen years of selling real estate, I can honestly say that Gene (and his assistant Pam) is one of the best agents that I have worked with over the years. If you are looking in Myrtle Beach, SC (and surrounding areas), I would not hesitate to hire him as your agent. You definitely won't be sorry!!!

Darwin S and Jamie Y - 2014

Dunes Village Resort II, Myrtle Beach

Gene Carter is an excellent realtor. We bought a Myrtle Beach condo many years ago and Gene guided us to the perfect spot. In May we called Gene again when we wanted a place in a building with elevators. Again Gene found us the perfect place. We were able to sell our condo and buy another in about 60 days. He showed us a variety of of properties and advised us on how to handle the transaction. We wouldn't use anyone else on the Grand Strand.

Doug and Denise S - 2014

Brighton, Myrtle Beach

I enjoyed working with Gene and his assistant Pam Treadaway. I have worked with agents in the past and I never could reach them and it took days for them to call me back. Gene and his team are always available to answer any questions. I would give them a 10.

Carol D - 2014

Paradise Resort, Myrtle Beach

We purchased two properties from Gene and Team. Working with Gene and Team we witnessed high professionalism, subject matter expertise and attention to detail. For example, we didn't have a chance to view the condo unit that we bought - it wasn't available during our visit and Gene showed us a similar property. As soon as the property became available he went to the Resort and photographed the unit - 52 pictures from every possible angle! It was a nice touch and just shows that he takes extra steps to ensure client satisfaction. All inquiries and requests were responded to in a timely manner. We'll definitely recommending Gene as a competent professional.

Paul and Lyuba G - 2014

Island Vista Resort, Myrtle Beach

Gene and his staff were very easy to work with. They answered all of our questions and concerns from start to finish and made our condo purchase an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend the Hoffman Group. They know the market and do the research needed to get most accurate information to their clients.

Mike and Karen M - 2014

Long Bay Resort, Myrtle Beach

Gene was great to work with. He met us on a Saturday and showed us numerous properties that were within our price range. He took the time to print out cash flow examples and helped us choose the right property for us. I would definitely recommend Gene to anyone looking for property in myrtle beach. I don't think there is anyone more knowledgable about the market conditions in that area and he will help find the best value.

Terry and Holly R - 2014

We are so glad from the selection to closing of our second condo in Dunes Village in Myrtle Beach with the professional help from Gene and his team. We appreciate all of your efforts.

Gene and Pam were excellent in every way. Gene was very responsive, honest, and gave good advice throughout. Really a smooth process from start to finish.

Mark and Brenda F - 2012

Margate, Myrtle Beach

Gene Carter is a great realtor and a great person. We have been working with him for many years, and he has shown a tremendous amount of patience as we weighed all of our options (over and over again) while trying to find the perfect second / retirement home. He took the time to get to know our family so that he could better address our needs. When we finally made a decision to purchase, he was there to answer all of our questions and concerns. He's more than a realtor - he's a family friend. We have recommended him to anyone interested in purchasing a home in the Myrtle Beach area, and will continue to do so. Our only regret is that we won't have a reason to look Gene up the next time we're in Myrtle Beach!

And, we couldn't write these comments without mentioning Pam Treadaway. She's an important part of Gene's team; she's extremely pleasant to deal with, and helped to keep our purchase on track.

Fred and Anita L - 2012

Caribbean, Myrtle Beach

We are very pleased with Gene for all his help and efforts to find us the right unit and get it closed on time. Gene is very professional and knowledgeable, easy to reach and well communicated with all the details.

We definitely will work with him for our future Myrtle Beach real estate investment.

George S and Jianhua F - 2012

Cinzia Lane, North Myrtle Beach

Gene was very helpful giving us an idea of what the total cost would be so we could consider the purchase and subsequent rental of our property.
