There are lots of reasons that the staff and sales executives of The Trembley Group Real Estate love to live and play in Myrtle Beach and along South Carolina’s Grand Strand. The area offers something for everyone. From the Alabama Theater to the Long Bay Symphony or the wide variety of arts and crafts shows to the Franklin G. Burroughs – Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum , there is something for everyone’s taste. That’s true of the Grand Strand’s real estate as well. From elegant, top of the market estates to golf and family focused neighborhoods with a mixture of condominiums and single family homes to the rustic, “elegantly shabby” oceanfront cottages of Pawleys Island , there is something for everyone’s budget and taste.
