Before I talk about my life as a Myrtle Beach Real Estate agent, I first want to share a little info about myself. I am originally from Reading, PA and moved to Myrtle Beach, SC in 1998 after graduating from high school. Shortly after moving to the area, I attended Coastal Carolina University where I graduated in Business Management.
While working on my degree, I obtained my Real Estate License in 2001 and teamed up with my father from 2001 to 2008 to become a top producing real estate team in Myrtle Beach, The Blanton Team. After several years of success as a real estate agent, I then joined ActiveRain as a community builder to help grow this amazing network. ActiveRain is one of the world's largest real estate networks with over 300,000 members worldwide.
In the beginning of 2010 I then opened my own company, 210 Consulting- Social Media Advisors. I started this company because I was ready to make a difference. Unlike many other social media gurus, I actually used (and continue to use) social media in my daily business plans to experience big-time results.
Over the past few years, I have traveled all around the country as a social media speaker helping thousands learn how to use social media networks to increase their business. I've spoken for various organizations and conferences like: National Association of REALTORS®, Coldwell Banker, RE/MAX, RETSO, Lions Clubs International, CreateSouth, Inman News, and many more. Some of the topics I have spoken on several topics relating to WordPress, video, social media integration, social media strategies, blogging, SEO, and more.
I've also been published on various sites including Coldwell Banker, Rubbermaid, New Home Source, Inman News and also as a guest blogger for my local newspaper.
In March 2014 my father passed away unexpectedly and in the weeks following his death I began remembering something he always told me. He would look at me and say "Jeremy, if something ever happens to me, you better get your butt back into real estate." So, in May 2014, I joined RE/MAX Southern Shores and started back my real estate career.
When I am not busy working, I love getting out & enjoying some of the most beautiful golf courses Myrtle Beach has to offer. I am a professional army golfer (left, right, left, right down the course.) Some of my other loves include spending time with my awesome wife and three super awesome children which I call my "built in entertainment system."
