Sylvia, did everything possible to help us when we were moving from ohio to myrtle beach s.c. She knew the area well as we were looking all around the area until we found the right house and she helped us to buy the perfect house for my wife and I and my daughter and three grandsons. I would use Sylvia again if I would ever buy another house.

Sylvia is the consumate professional and acts as you personal assistant when she is working for the seller or the buyer. While living in Maryland and trying to set up dates and times for showings as to when we could travel to South Carolina, which we did on several occasions, to review the properties she always made us feel comfortble and at ease and more than willing to work around our schedule. Sylvia showed us 30+ homes before we decided on a home and we were always comfortable with her as our agent, she's honest and forthcoming in her opinions about properties and you can't beat that southern charm the exudes from her personality. She is always willing to give you all the time needed when looking for a home. My wife and I do highly recommend Sylvia. Larry & Dee Bielak Less ... More

I called Sylvia from new Hampshire looking for a home in the myrtle beach area, we had a couple of places that we wanted to look at, and she got us all the info we needed, and she started looking for the type of property we wanted. we went down to s.c. and Sylvia had viewings all set up. she also worked hard to get us into other places we wanted to see at the last minute, and get all information relative to the properties. we made an offer on one, and had to return to n.h.. Sylvia stayed in contact with us every step of the way, and helped us find a reliable home inspector. she also helped with the transfer of the power company and water. Sylvia is very accommodating, very knowledgeable about the area and services. this was my fifth home purchase over the years, and it was the easiest. Less ... More

I am an out of state buyer (Wisconsin) exploring properties in South Carolina near Myrtle Beach. Sylvia is a gracious and skilled expert in her field. She continues to provide me with property options even though we are still exploring and slow to go to the next step. She has great patience and persistence.

Sylvia is the real estate agent that you want on your team. She stuck with my family for over three years while the entire time always keeping us informed and up to date about houses that were going on the market. We finally were able to find the perfect house for the family and having Sylvia on our side was a key factor. I highly recommend Sylvia to anyone who is looking to purchase land within the Grand Strand area.

Sylvia Simpson was great to work with to find and close on our condo in Myrtle Beach. As residents of Pennsylvania, we only had 1 week to spend in SC, and in that short amount of time, Sylvia helped us find the property we wanted and helped us with the complicated bidding process. Even though we didn't spend much time together, she was able to make us feel comfortable with her knowledge of the area and she was always available via phone or email. We really appreciated that she helped us stay within our budget, she never attempted to sell us more than we could afford. We would recommend working with Sylvia to anyone. Less ... More

Sylvia Simpson represents, to my wife and I, EVERYTHING that we had hoped a realtor would be. We have bought and sold several properties over the past 15 years, and have experienced all types of realtors. Sylvia impressed us with her professionalism, mastery of her field, and her ability to quickly learn what was important to my wife and I. I know that she is a very busy realtor, but she made us feel like we were her only potential buyers. She was timely, caring, listened attentively and helped us sift through the hundreds of listed properties- filtering them down to the dozen or so that closely fit what we were after, and then down to a manageable 6 or so for us to view. We actually fell in love with what we thought was going to be our 4th or 5th ranked property, and Sylvia unselfishly rearranged her busy next morning, for us to get another walkthrough before our flight home. We totally and without any hesitation recommend Sylvia Simpson to be your realtor. Less ... More

Sylvia was very patient as we changed from what we though we wanted to what we found out we actually wanted. We were working remotely (300 miles) and Sylvia provided lots to think about by email and set up the intensive viewings to match our visits. She obviously knew her area and was able to advise on pros and cons of any location we looked at. However, she was very professional and usually only commented on the property itself after we had started to formulate our opinions. With Sylvia's help we quickly selected the property that suited us. We would recommend Sylvia to anyone wishing to buy a property in the Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas Less ... More

Sylvia Simpson is friendly and easy to work with, and she knows the business and is efficient and effective in the conduct of business. We bought a condo with her help, beginning with online contacts which she continued through much of a year. She took care of our best interests and always made us feel personnally important to her but she was always treated us with respect in a relaxed style that made it very easy to conduct our business from our home that is out of state. We flew into the state of SC and she picked us up and drove us around to view prospective sites that she knew we would be interested in. She then conducted negotiations for us until we made an offer and then was diligent on our behalf right through the closing. She is a real gem and you could not find a better person as well as real estate agent than Sylvia Simpson. I direct friends to her and will look to her for any future assistance in real estate.

We contacted Ms. Simpson after seeing her other reviews on line and we are very happy we did. From the first contact we made with Ms. Simpson, we knew we had the Agent that would go the extra mile for us. Even though we were NOT looking for that million dollar beach front property, she treated us as though we were her most important client. She returned all phone calls and emails quickly and was always honest and forthright with her opinion of the properties we viewed. We never felt pressured into buying anything; we always felt she had OUR best interest at heart. When it came time for the closing, she helped us with any questions we had and was genuinely happy that she helped us realize a dream of owning a beach property! She loves the Myrtle Beach area and is more than willing to share her ample knowledge. She is a true gem! ( We have already referred her to friends and co workers! ) Less ... More

We met Sylvia after we had tried to find a house ourselves. We gave up and we called her from one of the many signs she had on listings. She is one of those (we think) rare Realtors who listen to what the buyer is looking for in a house and the location criteria. We looked at several houses that met the criteria we gave her and finally settled on one. We did not know it at the time but it was in foreclosure, following a bankruptcy, was listed as a short-sale, and believe me, it was complicated. However, Sylvia was knowledgeable about the process, wrote the contract and guided us through to closing with unbelievable patience. We are very grateful for her help, professionalism, knowledge, patience and her diligence in guiding us through the transaction. We know from the many times we have met her that she will provide the same high quality service for any buyer or seller. Less ... More

I am originally from Pennsylvania and relocated o Myrtle Beach a few months ago. I don't think I would have been able to do this without the help of Sylvia. She helped me with everything. I did not see the house I purchased until the day before my closing and I was not disapointed at all. I have other people that are going to start looking for homes in this area and I have already given them her name.

Ms. Simpson was wonderful to work with. She did not pressure us into buying. She assist us with finding an affordable house for our budget in a great location. We never felt like we were under pressure to buy so that she could make commission. It was a great experience considering the time frame we had. We would definitely utilize Ms. Simpson again should we need to sell/buy another home.

Sylvia is very professional, she attentively listens and makes the time required for you - based on your schedule, not hers. She promptly responds to every inquiry, question, or concern. Sylvia is very customer oriented and provides the negotiation skills to make the best decision based on location, other prices within your buying/selling area. Sylvia's patience and desire to help you find exactly what you want is limitless. I've worked with many realtors over the years; however, Sylvia ranks the highest. She will go above and beyond to ensure that you are satisfied and make the best deal based on your goal. I sincerely recommend Sylvia as your agent - whether you are buying or selling, or both! She will definitely work with you to accomplish your goal. Less ... More

We met Sylvia Simpson during the summer of 2010 when she showed us some properties on a short vacation to the Myrtle Beach area. In the months that followed, she viewed on our behalf some online properties that we were interested in. Sylvia was so professional but at the same time very personable, caring, honest, patient and willing to help in anyway she could. She always had such a great understanding of our personal and financial situation and always knew exactly what we wanted in a piece of real estate. She was very thorough in checking every little detail. When we finally made our purchase, being Canadian residents and working overseas at the time, Sylvia made it so easy with personally arranging inspections, legal, insurance and any other necessary services that were required. We recall her email after her final inspection telling us that "you will be very pleased" and were we ever pleased when we arrived and viewed our property that summer in 2011. Our close friends have also just purchased from Sylvia and we strongly and highly recommend Sylvia Simpson for any of your future real estate interests. She is an exceptional agent in every way!

I starting working with Sylvia in 2010. Being out of state was a little difficult. Sylvia worked hard in helping us find our home. She reviewed properties, took pictures and sent them to us for our review and kept us up-to-date on current listings. She never gave up in the year that we worked with her.

Sylvia is a true professional and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. She accomodated my schedule on several occasions and consistently kept in touch with me. She is accessible and listened to what my needs were. I challenged her with several types of properties and many locations as I narrowed down the direction I wanted to take and she helped me through that process. I was all over the map and she was understanding and extremely positive. She always made me feel like I was her primary focus. I have dealt with many real estate transactions and Sylvia is sincerely the best! She is not only professional and efficient she is truely a good person with a heart of gold.

We finally have the vacation home of our dreams, thanks to Sylvia Simpson! We told her what we were interested in, what we were willing to pay, and she knew immediately the house we would love. We met her at the location to look at the house and for her to give us info on other similar homes in the area. After looking at the home she wanted us to see, we didn't even look at another listing because it was perfect. We are now enjoying our vacation home as much as we can. We are so thankful to Sylvia for listening to us and knowing exactly what would make us happy and helping us to live a dream come true. Less ... More

I worked with Sylvia when looking for a home in The Myrtle Beach area. I was from VA and knew very little about this area and she was VERY patient and extemely knowledgeable. She was always available for me. I wasn't the easiest of clients, I had a long list of must haves and was on a tight budget. She showed us the different areas since each one has it's own flavor and we finally settled on Garden City area. Sylvia always accomodated me and we found the perfect home for us that checked all the boxes. I recommend Sylvia to everyone I know who are looking for houses. Less ... More

We first contacted Sylvia on a spur of the moment listing on July 4th, of all times, & she immediately arranged for us to come down & take a look, as we knew this property would not last long at the listed price. She met us, & things took off right from the start. She kept us well informed all along the process, negotiated with the sellers to get the price down even further, & when they had moved out, she even went over to make sure everything was in order. She followed up with us a couple of times to make sure we were still happy & just to say hello. She has a great customer service attitude and is very, very helpful. I would certainly recommend her for any real estate needs! Less ... More
