Anthony’s Reviews on Zillow:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5/5

All of the above! Think of him as a friend, now. Very trustworthy. This is the person to call for someone to feel not pressured or pushed in anyway. He knows how to collect the information he needs to provide the place for you. We can’t say enough good things. We found our house hunting  positive and very proud of our new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Spartanburg, SC

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5/5

Anthony was an incredible partner in the search and purchase of my first home. He was always available, incredibly knowledgeable, and was always willing to provide guidance. We conquered many challenges over the course of the home buying process. He was able to provide actionable guidance which  resulted in the successful completion of the deal. I am extremely grateful to have worked with Anthony and look forward to working with him in the future.

Bought a Condo home in 2016 in Myrtle Beach, SC.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5/5

We are from NY and we were looking to purchase a home in Hoory county, and had been working with a different agent. On a three day trip down to look at homes, the previous agent was unable to get us into the houses we really wanted to see. Unhappy with our realtor and worried we made a trip for  nothing, we contacted Anthony at 7pm on a Sunday. Anthony answered his phone and looked up the homes we wanted to see and made phone calls to get us into the homes the next day. Because of previous commitments Anthony was unable to take us, so he got us in touch with the selling agent. The next day we found our dream home. Again we called Anthony to get his opinion and he gave us some wonderful advice. During the mortgage process, we ran into issues with our mortgage company. Again we called Anthony and he immediately got us in touch with a local mortgage agent, who was able to get us to close in 2 weeks. We are now sitting in our dream home, and we would not be here if it were not for Anthony and the Coastal Group. We will forever be greatful!

Brookgreen Gardens is a National Historic Landmark with the most significant collection of figurative sculpture in an outdoor setting by American artists in the world and has the only zoo accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums on the coast of the Carolinas. 
Named by TripAdvisor as One of the Top Ten Public Gardens in the US and one of the Myrtle Beach area’s most dearly loved attractions, Brookgreen Gardens’ combination of art, history, and zoo touches the heart and teaches the mind. Boat rides turn into history lessons, a butterfly house becomes a conservation class, and an Enchanted Storybook Forest engages children’s imagination. Open daily to the public. Admission is good for seven consecutive days.
 
One of the best attractions in south carolina

 

I have lived in the Surfside Beach and Murrells Inlet area my whole life. My family and I go to Brookgreen a minimum of 3 times a year: When the azaleas are in bloom, the fall festival and Night of a Thousand Candles. It is always gorgeous and never gets old. It is even better going on non-event days when it is less crowded. That way you can just relax and take in the beauty at a slow pace.  – Patty Vitello

We really loved our visit here – we wished we could explore more when it wasn’t so hot! We paid extra for the Trekker tour and it was totally worth it. Our guide told us some fascinating information about the history and nature on the property. Beautiful grounds! A hidden gem that I will be recommending to everyone I know who visits the Myrtle Beach area. – Beth Shinkle Potthast
