Tracy Bryant-RayHappy Cinco de Mayo!  Today, we are introducing you to another of our Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living agents in the Myrtle Beach Area, Tracy Bryant-Ray, whose whole family is involved in real estate.  Tracy grew up with one brother in Nakina, North Carolina, approximately 30 miles north of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  Her father was a licensed contractor, and he and her mother owned a contracting business. They developed a very successful contracting business building beach homes in Cherry Grove, South Carolina, on North Myrtle Beach's north end.  Tracy’s mother got her real estate license in both North and South Carolina, so she could also sell beach real estate and build it.  Tracy says, “My mother is an awesome mentor as I learn more about the business.”

Tracy attended South Columbus High School, playing basketball and tennis, but her passion was for dance (ballet, tap, jazz, etc.).  Tracy graduated from Waccamaw Academy in Whiteville, North Carolina, approximately 45 miles northwest of North Myrtle Beach real estate.  After graduation, Tracy attended the University of North Carolina Wilmington and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Recreational Therapy.  She continued her education with Liberty University, earning a Master of Arts in Elementary Education.

After college and years of dance training, Tracy opened her dance school in Loris, South Carolina, approximately 30 miles west of North Myrtle Beach. During this time, Tracy met and married her husband, also named Tracy.  They have nine-year-old identical twin boys who hold the key to her heart.  Tracy also has a 23-year-old stepdaughter.

Tracy owned and operated her dance school for 13 years until she decided to sell it in 2015, hoping to have more time for her family.  Although she closed her dance school, she has continued to teach a few select students over the past two years.  Eventually, Tracy decided to join the family in their real estate ventures, so she became a beach real estate agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in the Myrtle Beach area.

Tracy has been a beach real estate agent for a little over a year and has her beach real estate business off to a great start.  Of course, her mother is Lynne Bryant, one of our best North Myrtle Beach real estate agents.  We think that Lynne is probably giving her daughter, Tracy, a little guidance so that she can become the best beach real estate agent possible.  Let’s find out how Tracy is handling her beach real estate business.

Q:  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 chose Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in Myrtle Beach for a few reasons.  First, I grew up in the area and know the Elliott name has an excellent reputation for real estate in and around Myrtle Beach. I also know that Better Homes & Gardens is a national brand everyone recognizes! With these two together, how could I go wrong?

Second, my Mom had been an agent with BHGRE for several years before I came on board. Her great experiences significantly influenced my choice to join the BHGRE team.

Q:  How do you market yourself to a potential client that causes them to choose you as their agent?

A:  I think most people seek an agent who will be honest, prompt, and dependable in all aspects of the buying or selling process. I believe striving to exhibit these characteristics will eventually pay off with potential buyers or sellers. If I do a good job, they will, hopefully, recommend me to their friends and acquaintances.

Q:  When you list a house for a client in the Myrtle Beach area, what means of marketing do you find most valuable in reaching other realtors and potential clients?

A:  I will use the MLS, which will reach all the realtors, and the other websites available to me, such as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living.

Q:  What do you find most rewarding about your job as a real estate agent for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living in Myrtle Beach?

A:  I enjoy looking for and trying to find the “just right” property for my clients. When they do find it, it is rewarding to know that I helped them find what they were looking for.
