MCVL Realty has built a niche serving the rural area between the Charleston/Mount Pleasant and Georgetown/Myrtle Beach metropolitan areas. Geographically, this is a huge niche extending 40 miles from end to end, but because of it’s rural nature, the number of active properties is only in the hundreds. By focusing exclusively on this niche, we are truly able to follow a radar-like observation of the daily activities of the market to provide expert service to our clients. As part of our promise to deliver top notch service to our buyer and seller clients, MCVL Realty has expanded our access to include new Multiple Listing Services (MLS’s). In addition to being able to access sold comparables and list properties for sale in the Charleston-Trident MLS (which includes residential properties in Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties) we are now able to do the same for commercial properties in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester and the Coastal Carolina MLS which includes both residential and commercial properties in Georgetown, Pawley’s Island, Murrell’s Inlet, and Myrtle Beach.
MCVL Realty is still very much devoted toward the idea of serving the rural area between Mount Pleasant and Georgetown and east of Hwy 41 to include McClellanville, Awendaw, Huger, Honey Hill, and Shulerville, but the Santee Rivers have always been a very abstract border with some great rural properties just beyond them that we can now more easily represent. More than anything, this new MLS access gives us the ability to list our listings in both region’s MLS for much greater exposure. One of our listings for sale in McClellanville can now be seen by agents in the Grand Strand and listings that we pick up just north of the Santee river can be seen by agents in Charleston. Our growth in the commercial division completes our desire to be a truly full-service brokerage able to help the needs of every client in our area no matter the property or transaction type. We want people to know whether they want to buy, sell, or lease long- or short-term and whether they have or need land or a home, residential or commercial, that we are here to help.
Did You Know? The general public thinks of the MLS as a database of properties. In actuality, it is a contractual agreement that brokers make with each other to agree to cooperate with each other and provide compensation when due. When you list your property with MCVL Realty you sign a listing agreement with us promising to pay our brokerage a commission upon sale of your property. We in turn make a promise to other brokerages that we will share a specific portion of that commission with them if they bring the buyer when we enter that listing into the MLS. By having these agreements in place ahead of time, agents do not need to be concerned with their compensation and can put their clients’ best interest first.
