BRG was founded in 2011 by two veteran real estate agents, Darren Woodard and Jeff Casterline
in Myrtle Beach.
With a handful of agents, they
set out to build a hybrid real estate firm that integrated the very best technology with the steadfast belief that the most important aspect of every real estate transaction should always be the relationship between the agent and their client.
Every service added to the
company is to make the agent’s
job of taking care of their clients the top priority.
To this day, we remain an innovative, tech forward, agent centric brokerage.
In 2019, BRG was once again the
#1 Independent Brokerage on the Grand Strand
with over $256 million in total sales.
More notable figures from 2019:
Since our start in 2011, we have experienced an unprecedented increase in units sold.
Our goal is simple: To continue to exceed all expectations...both yours and ours.

North and South Carolina law requires every real estate transaction in the
state to be facilitated by a
real estate attorney.
Real Estate Attorney
Your attorney is a vital member of your team and will ensure you are protected from any unforeseen issues, negotiate terms, and offer advice. Your attorney will be an invaluable resource that can provide expert knowledge and
insight into your real estate transaction.
Your Agent can provide you with a list of practicing Real Estate Attorneys in the area.
Determining your financial options with your lender is an important first step in the home buying process. Speaking with a lender first will save valuable time, help determine your price range, and help the buying process run smoothly. Most importantly, a pre-approval will provide better buying and negotiating power.
Mortgage lending firms and mortgage brokers provide a variety of products and financing options. At BRG, we constantly search for professionals that will offer multiple lending capabilities and extraordinary expertise to assist you in making smart financial decisions.
As licensed agents in the states of North and South Carolina, there are certain documents that we as agents are required by law to discuss when it comes time to ask a customer to decide if they would like to become a client. If you’ve spoken with an agent and they haven’t given you this information upfront then they are already violating the license law we are supposed to uphold!
As a consumer, you have the right as to how you would like to be represented. At BRG we strive to help each customer at the highest level which would be client level representation under a Buyer Agency agreement.
In order to better understand your options, any agent you speak with in South Carolina should share with you the “South Carolina Disclosure of Brokerage Relationships” brochure. In North Carolina, you should receive the “Working with Real Estate Agents” brochure. Those documents would be required documents for you to review and sign when working with any licensed agent.
