Denise Coleman, RRS, GRI, CRS - REALTOR, Broker Associate
Making Beach Dreams a Reality
South Carolina native Denise Coleman grew up with a natural appreciation for the region. After graduating from Andrews Academy in 1984, Denise left the small community of Andrews, South Carolina, and headed to the University of South Carolina - Coastal Campus (Coastal Carolina University) to study nursing. It was Denise's intention to continue her education near the coast - an area she treasures and considers picture-perfect. In 1989 Denise married a local contractor and consequently began her career in real estate. Her fascination of the building industry and love for being a part of the home buying experience continues to keep Denise grateful of her profession and as her family expected - her passion for the coast kept her at the beach.
Denise enjoys assisting buyers and sellers in all aspects of the real estate industry. Her experience with everything from new construction to investment opportunities in the beach resort market has given her a well-rounded education in pursuing her ambition of "Making Beach Dreams a Reality" for buyers and sellers alike.
Denise is a firm believer in the statement - to belong and understand you must participate - and her involvement as a REALTOR proves it. She is an active member of the National Association of REALTORS (NAR), the South Carolina Association of REALTORS (SCR) and the Coastal Carolina Association of REALTORS (CCAR). She presently serves as Secretary for the Garden City Beach Community Association, is the Carolina Coast Cotillion Events Coordinator, and is an active member of the Belin United Methodist Church in Murrells Inlet. She formerly served as Secretary of the SCR Education Foundation Board (REF), the CCAR Grievance Committee, and the CCAR Community Outreach Committee, which was instrumental in organizing the Garden City Beach bi-annual Beach Sweep. Locally with CCAR, Denise has served on the CCAR Board of Directors, Hospitality Committee and Professional Standards Committee. Denise is a 2002 graduate of the CCAR Leadership Training Program and was presented the REALTOR IMAGE AWARD.
Continued education and experience are both key to Denise's success. She constantly strives to better serve her clients while staying in tune with the ever changing market conditions. In addition to extensive training in 1031 Tax Exchanges, Denise holds multiple accreditation to include a Broker's License, Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI), Resort Recreation Specialist (RRS), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), and Resort and Second Home Property Specialist (RSPS). Denise consistently ranks in the top 100 agents within the Coastal Carolina Association of REALTORS and is one of the leading agents with Garden City Realty, Inc. She is consistently recognized for Top Listing and Selling Transactions at Garden City Realty, Inc. and is the recipient of the company's Top Producer Award in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2013.
In her free time, Denise enjoys spending time with her family and friends - at the beach of course.
