Meet Our New Realtor®– Danise Stephens
Hello again! We are back to introduce you to Danise Stephens, another new beach real estate agent, that is joining our team at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Danise grew up in Lake View, South Carolina, which is approximately 60 miles from Myrtle Beach. Her father farms, so of course she has an agricultural background. She has always been very involved in the business aspect of his farming operations. Danise graduated from East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina earning a BSBE degree.
Danise soon decided that teaching was not the career for her and became a Social Worker with the Marion County Department of Social Services in Marion, South Carolina. After 31 years of state service, Danise retired for a few weeks. Deciding retirement was also not for her at that time, she relocated to Cherry Grove, South Carolina and started a new career as a sales representative in time share for the last eight years.
Danise does take time to enjoy herself and indulge in her hobbies. She likes being on the beach, listening to the tranquility of the ocean and the sea gulls. She also enjoys visits to the mountains, smelling the clean air and taking in the sights and sounds. Most of all she enjoys meeting new people, relaxing and having fun.
As you can see, Danise has a wide range of experience in many areas. She actually received her Real Estate License in 1986 as well as her Auctioneer’s License. She decided to put her Real Estate License to use and joined our team at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living which has offices in North Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island. Let’s see how Danise is feeling about her newest career.
