Dear Jerry, I would like to personally thank you for helping me find my dream home. I have always wanted to live at the beach and you made that possible. My daughter fell in love with the new house, as soon as she saw it! The hardwood floors make it seem like home. You and your staff were very friendly and cordial in the entire process. You went to great lengths in making sure that this transaction was quick, simple and easy for me to conduct business while living in NC. Your expertise and knowledge of the local area made the task of picking out my dream home, very easy; and we did it..... in just one day! I still cant believe we closed in less than 30 days. Thanks again Jerry to you and your staff, and I will definitely come back to you, when its time to buy another property or sell in the future. Teresa Batchelor
I just wanted to thank you for all you did to help Craig and I locate and purchase our retirement home in Woodlake Village. We started looking for a home on the Grand Strand not long after we moved to Florence in May of 2005, but we hadn't found anything in our price range that worked for us. It was very discouraging and we actually gave up the search several times before we met you! You understood our situation and helped us deal with the uncertainties and fears that go along with making such a big decision. With your help we were able to overcome the obstacles and realize our dream. It was a pleasure to work with you and we truly couldn't have done it without you. Please feel free to stop by whenever you happen to be in our lovely neighborhood!
JoAnne and Craig Allen Murrells Inlet, SC
Just a little note to say thanks! I never thought we could ever own an Myrtle Beach Ocean Front Condo ! But with your help and hospitality, we managed to do so. You did a great job and you continue to do a great job. If I had any questions or concerns, you were there to help in any way you could. Really appreciate all you done to make Paul and my dream come true. If we ever see we can purchase another vacation property, you will be the one we contact. So, again many thanks from the both of us.
Sherri & Paul Irby
Paul & I would like to thank you for all your help and assistance in the purchase of unit #1525. You we're instrumental in our decision making. Since Paul & I didn't know much about Myrtle Beach we were grateful that you spent time to show us the area. I will definitely recommend you to all my friends showing interest in Myrtle Beach Real Estate.
Just a short note, to say thank you and what a pleasure it was to work with you. We have been involved with several real estate sales people both in the purchase and sale of real estate in the past.
However, working with you showed us that you were truly knowledgeable and professional in your field. You went the extra mile working for us and we feel that we have made a true friend in you.
James and Beverly Folds
Jerry's goal was to make sure I found what fit my needs, my budget, and was in an area where I would be comfortable living. He cared more about what I wanted than what he needed to do to sell a property. He conveyed a sense that if we didn't find what I wanted, we'd keep looking until we did. Never did I feel rushed or a burden to him even though he spent one full day and part of several others helping me look at properties. My success was his success. That was his goal and he accomplished it.
Jerry listened to me, he responded immediately to questions, he gave excellent advise and direction when looking at properties and he proved that he was working FOR me not just trying to sell real estate. He didn't rush me, he was attentive and he gave me the pros and cons about the properties we looked at. The results: I didn't think I could afford property on the beach. It was a dream but not what I considered reality. Because of our many conversations prior to my visit both by phone and via email, I believe Jerry knew what I really wanted - perhaps better than I did myself. By the end of my two weeks visit, I had made an offer on a condo on the beach that was accepted, had an approved loan and a settlement date. Jerry gave me ideas for finding affordable insurance as well as a management company. Bottom line - Jerry made my dream a reality!
Jerry Pinkas helped me located and purchase a property. You would think that would be the end of our association but his service didn't stop there. He called me many times to make sure I had everything in place for settlement and gave me a checklist of what I needed to do. The service doesn't stop after the deal is made. It continues as long as you need it.
Thanks Again for all your help.
To whom it may concern;
My wife and I began researching second homes in South Carolina and other southern states via the Internet. After viewing many of these sites, my wife came across Jerry Pinkas's web page. She signed up for updates on available properties based on the criteria we specified. These updates came on a daily basis and allowed us to preview hundreds of suitable properties from our home in Massachusetts.
We scheduled a meeting with Jerry on a recent trip to Myrtle Beach. From the first moment, we felt at ease with this gentle man whom we had never met. Jerry's simple, straightforward approach to showing us properties that suited our needs was both pleasant and informative. He was quick to point out that his job was not to sell property, but to give us the tools we needed to buy property. His local knowledge was something we could never factor in over the Internet. As a buyer's agent, everything he did was committed to OUR best interest. Every property had, in Jerry's words, "the good, the bad, and the ugly" and he explained every detail.
Jerry submitted our offer before we flew home and the rest of the transaction was completed in such a timely, professional manner, from hundreds of miles away. His continued support before, during, and after the closing process included many forms of assistance to us that we considered to be "extras", or things we never expected from him, and he made us feel like we were his only client. This was the absolute best and most convenient real estate experience ever for both of us, and despite the long distance, Jerry made us feel as if we were right next door. We both feel we made a great investment and a new friend and cannot wait to deal with Jerry again for our next real estate "adventure" in the Myrtle Beach Area.
We both recommend Jerry's services without the slightest hesitation, and have already done so with friends and family members. We are so thankful to meet and work with this man who brings a new meaning and level to the terms " real estate professional" and "service".

Janice and I cannot thank you enough for your outstanding efforts in helping us to purchase Myrtle Beach Condo for sale. From the time I called on a Saturday morning to say we were coming to town to look at property until final closing, your efforts were outstanding. You quickly researched and found properties for us to view on a very short notice. Your knowledge of the area, candidness of the plusses and minuses on each property, and expertise and negotiation skills are fantastic! I would recommend you to any potential buyer who wants the best agent representing their interests.
