Hello again! We are back to introduce you to our newest beach real estate agent, Janna Nance, who we are happy to add to our team at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Janna grew up in Lake View, South Carolina, as the daughter of farmers, and learned at an early age that to be successful, you had to work hard and persevere.
Janna was very active in sports throughout high school, which was an invaluable lesson in team work and self discipline. She was a cheerleader, and played softball, basketball, and volleyball. After graduating from high school, Janna attended the College of Charleston and earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology. After college, Janna worked as a Clinical Counselor and Social Worker for twelve years.
At that point, she made the decision to attend Nursing school at Florence Darlington Technical College to become a Registered Nurse. Upon completion of her RN degree, Janna attended USC- Spartanburg through a satellite program at Horry- Georgetown Technical College and earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She worked as a Labor/Delivery nurse at Loris Hospital in Loris, South Carolina for three years.
Moving on up the ladder, she was offered a position as Nursing Supervisor at Little River Medical Center, where she worked for several years. Janna became licensed as an Esthetician and transitioned to DermaVogue, where she worked as a Nurse Injector, Laser/Skin treatment specialist, and Office Manager for eleven years. Although it sounds like Janna was very busy educating herself and working, she did take time to get married and has six stepchildren and six grandchildren. Janna also finds time for her hobbies, such as tennis, collecting antiques, and painting furniture. Janna enjoys going to auctions, buying furniture, making it more appealing by refinishing with paint/stain, and reselling for a profit.
In 2017, Janna once again pursued additional education and earned her Real Estate License, becoming a real estate agent for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in North Myrtle Beach. Let’s find out how Janna is feeling about her new business as a beach real estate agent.
Q: Janna, there are many real estate agencies located in North Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach, and along the Grand Strand, but you chose BHGRE. Why?
A: I was familiar with the Elliott Company, because we have rented our beach house with them for five years. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living has great curb appeal and a nice work space. When I interviewed with them, it felt like a good fit with a familial atmosphere that was very comfortable and cozy. They have the latest technology and training for their agents as well.
Q: How will you market yourself to a potential client that causes them to choose you as their agent?
A: I have years of varied work experience that I bring to the table, and I am very knowledgeable of the Myrtle Beach area as well as Horry County. My company is franchised with Better Homes and Gardens–a branded name that my clients will recognize as being associated with good products and services. I am persistent and determined when completing tasks and very competitive. I play to win whether it is getting the best price for a client’s property that is for sale or finding the perfect property for my clients for a reasonable price.
Q: What assets do you have that will contribute to your success as a beach real estate agent?
A: I am willing to go the extra mile to find my clients the property that fits their specifications and persevere until I find it. I have a strong work ethic and enjoy helping people since I have been a helper “by trade” my entire working career. As I stated earlier, I am a competitor and like to be the best at whatever task I pursue. I also live at the beach and know the lifestyle very well as well as the area itself.
Q: Now that you are a North Myrtle Beach Real Estate Agent, what do you like best about the job?
A: I enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them. I also like the atmosphere in the office at BHGRE where everyone is very helpful, and the resources are outstanding.
Q: As a real estate agent at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in the Myrtle Beach area, you will not have set office hours, so you have to be self motivated. What motivates you?
A: The major motivation in any task or job I pursue is the need to succeed. I want to do the job well, and of course, I want to succeed financially. Helping other people is also a motivator for me, so helping them buy or sell their property will give me great pleasure.
Q: When you list a house for a client in the Myrtle Beach area, what means of marketing will you use to reach other realtors and potential clients?
A: I will list it in the MLS which is the listing site that will reach all realtors and potential clients. I will also use the technology that is available to me through Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living, and send out emails to clients that are looking for property if it meets their criteria. I will do my homework on the area and gather knowledge from other more experienced realtors in my office to get more ideas and continue to grow.
Q: How will you create your client base as a Myrtle Beach Real Estate Agent?
A: I will be working in the office during a specific time a couple of days each week to get leads and follow up on them. I will make daily phone calls and prospect unfamiliar neighborhoods as well as use my own social contacts.
Q: What do you think will be the most rewarding aspect of your job as a real estate agent for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in Myrtle Beach?
A: The most rewarding aspect of my job will be helping people to reach a goal that they have set such as buying their dream home or selling a property quickly and for as much money as possible. I will enjoy being a key player in making a person’s dreams come true.
