Hello again! Today, we would like to introduce you to North Myrtle Beach real estate agent, Matt Becker. He grew up in Southern Illinois in a family of four. He had one brother and his father owned an insurance company. After graduating from high school, he attended college and got his Associate’s Degree. After college, he married a young lady from Illinois. The newlyweds remained there, since it was their hometown, but his parents purchased Myrtle Beach real estate and moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Not long after their move into their beach real estate, Matt and his wife visited his parents and enjoyed Myrtle Beach’s 70-degree weather. But once they returned home, there was a blizzard. That is when Matt and his wife decided to move south to the warm, sunny climate of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and enjoy the ocean breezes, mild weather and all the other amenities the Grand Strand has to offer. Off they went to shop homes for sale in Myrtle Beach.
Matt became a North Myrtle Beach real estate agent, and he and his wife started a beautiful family. First, he had a little girl, who is currently attending the University of South Carolina majoring in Biology with a long-term goal to become an orthodontist. Next came a son, who is currently enrolled in the Academy of Arts, Science and Technology and majoring in digital communication In Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Academy of Arts, Science and Technology is located adjacent to Myrtle Beach homes for sale in the Carolina Forest community.
Matt is one of our most successful Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living agents in North Myrtle Beach, so we decided to ask him a few questions about his success at South Carolina real estate agent. Here we go…
Q: How long have you been a Myrtle Beach real estate agent?
A: I have been a North Myrtle Beach Real Estate Agent for 24 years. I worked with another company for ten years. Then, I decided to go to work for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in North Myrtle Beach.
Q: There are many North Myrtle Beach realty agencies, but you chose BHGRE—Why?
A: My mother was actually working for Elliott Beach Rentals, and she told me Rick Elliott’s family, who owns Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living, was a very well-respected honest family, with good values. She felt the company would be one that I would enjoy aligning myself with as an employee. It had a great reputation, so I tried it, and I have been with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living for 14 years.
Q: How do you market yourself to a potential client that causes them to choose you as their North Myrtle Beach real estate agent?
A: I feel like my credentials speak for themselves. I have had a broker’s license since around 1996. I have 24 years’ experience. I was top producer at my prior job for ten years. I have been in the top five since 2003 at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living.
Q: You are one of our most successful real estate agents. What do you attribute your success to?
A: I live, eat and breathe beach real estate. I am always available and I have fun with it. You can’t be too serious all the time.
Q: Do you prefer to focus on Myrtle Beach oceanfront condos for sale, beach houses for sale, or beach land for sale?
A: I prefer to sell houses and condos in North Myrtle Beach, because they are more affordable, and the client can still be close to the beach.

A: I like working with and meeting all the people. I like the diversity of the people you meet. Every day is different. It is never boring.
Q: Being a Myrtle Beach real estate agent is very competitive. What do you do that has earned you the description “one of the best”” real estate agents in the Myrtle Beach area?
A: I am fair and honest. I make sure that everyone in the transaction is 100% aware of everything about the beach property for sale and that the client is always satisfied. If the clients are not happy—no one is happy!!
Q: As a North Myrtle Beach real estate agent at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living, you do not have set office hours, so you have to be self-motivated. What motivates you?
A: Hunger—I am always excited about finding Myrtle Beach property for people. I am excited to find exactly what they are looking for, and it could come along at any minute during the day. You must stay on top of the inventory of houses for sale in Myrtle Beach, check the MLS’s and foreclosures.
Q: When you list houses for sale in North Myrtle Beach for a client, what means of marketing do you find most valuable in reaching other realtors and potential clients?
A: Online is the best way to reach potential buyers. The MLS is the best way to reach other agents. Although I am the agent that lists the Myrtle Beach real estate listings, any agent can sell the property.
Q: You seem to have a very good client base in the North Myrtle Beach area. How did you create it?
A: I have created it through all the years that I have been in the business. I have a lot of referrals, because if you do people right—and I do—they like to pass your name along.
