My Husband and I were considering property in Myrtle Beach, (which is on temporary hold) Kent Covington was Amazing with all of our questions and needs. Very prompt, which totally took us off guard, having problems with our local agents. We currently live in Covington, Kentucky and wish to relocate when my Husband is set to retire from the Police department. We visit SC several times a year for vacation and would love to have that as our future forever home. Kent Covington will be our agent when that time comes in a few short years. We had to temporarily pause our search not being to have duel financing with our VA loans. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our opinion. Less ... More

Kent was helpful in all aspects of the buying of our condo. Kent answered all our questions either on the spot or after doing research. Kent was very timely on returning phone, txt, and emails. He took his time in showing us many units over a period of several months. He remained neutral and did not pressure us to make a sale on any condo that we previewed.

It was an absolute pleasure working with kent. This was my first home purchase and it was also done with us being over 300 miles away. He was very responsive to all emails that I sent him and answered every question. No need to work with any other agent!

Listed home, but didn't sell
Kent was focused on our success from the beginning, and he actively Marketed our Property on several of the key Real Estate Websites on the Internet. His proactive approach, and willingness to listen to our ideas, and suggestions was refreshing. He was more than willing to reach out to other people in the Industry for advice, and opinions. Kent is a team player, and has excellent interpersonal skills, which make him very enjoyable to work with. Kent makes you feel as if you are his only client. He was able to capture the important details of our property very quickly, and highlight them in our Listing, and the online Photos. We recommend Kent very highly to anyone who is searching for a quality Real Estate professional who will work tirelessly for you. Less ... More

Listed and sold a home
Kent helped us to sell a condo that had previously been listed for six months with few viewers and no offers. He provided valuable guidance on pricing and effective marketing. We had a contract in 18 days. He provided great communication and coordination through the closing process. We closed 10 days early. We were extremely pleased with the service he provided.

We moved from Washington state to Myrtle Beach. Kent responded to a real estate email inquiry we made while still in WA. We were impressed with the speed of his response and that he responded at nearly 11 pm Eastern time! He listened to our wants and needs in a home and sent us many to view before we made the move. After arriving in MB we quickly found our home and Kent immediately helped us to start our negotiations. Since we were unfamiliar with the area Kent recommended a great insurance man and helped us to locate utility companies, etc. We would recommend Kent to anyone searching for a home. Less ... More

We live out of state and decided on a new build. During the process we had a medical emergency with one of our children and could not make it back to see the progress on the build. Kent went to the site every two weeks and took pictures of all the details. During the process the pictures revealed some upgrades that were not being done and he worked with the builder as if it was his home. The pictures sent to us were like we were there. He did the walk thru for us and actually took over relieving us to take care of matters at home. Kent worked for us above and beyond and comes highly recommended for his character and caring. We can assure anyone he works with will receive the best attention you can get during the search and completion of your home purchase. Moving is stressful enough. A good realtor can make all the difference when someone is helping with a major purchase. We do not make this recommendation lightly. He truly is one of the best! Less ... More

We are currently working with Kent as a buyer's realtor in order to find a second/retirement home in the Myrtle Beach area. We have not gotten to the negotiation/process part of the job, but he has been very helpful toward finding us the perfect home. We would highly recommend Kent!

We had two other realtors before finding Kent thanks to this rating system this is why we selected him. Kent helped us rapidly negotiate and close on a Fannie Mae property and we actually got it under asking price. He went the extra mile and got us plot plans and measured rooms, etc. Great job we highly recommend him he was low key and listened to / respected our needs.

We purchased a house thru a foreclosure dreading the all the nightmares with the foreclosure process. Kent was very knowledgeable about the process and had all the contacts and needed inspections set up that day. We had no issues and actually had the closing moved up by FHMA. Great experience and would use him again if ever needed. He communicates very effectively and his response time is impressive. Great realtor representative. We found the right house at the best price. Would recommend him to anyone looking. Less ... More

Kent's local knowledge and responsiveness are terrific. He has workied with me long distance for more than 7 months. He has been highly attentive to our time constraints, wants and needs. We were able to accomplish a lot in the short time that we were in South Carolina thanks much to Kent's preparedness. I would highly recommend him to anyone pruchasing in the Myrtle Beach area.

Kent worked with me via email while I was still in Arizona so when I finally got to Myrtle Beach, we had an excellent relationship. He was very knowledgeable about the area and we found the ideal condo for me within 5 months from the start. I was very impressed with his abilities and personal attentiveness.

Kent was a great pleasure to work with. He knows his stuff, and he's a great listener. He made himself exceptionally available, and quarterbacked the communication between the sellers broker and us. Highest recommendation.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Spoke to him on phone, sent many e-mails back and forth and a date was set up months ahead of time when I was going to go to Myrtle Beach, SC. But when I got there , (something had come up) and he had a man I had never spoke to show me to different homes. I was very uncomfortable, being a single woman alone with a man I knew nothing about, nor him I. I do not feel Douglas was responsible and he was a very nice man but untactful, just the same. I would not recommend Kent for an out of state alone woman. Less ... More

I did most of my browsing online and narrowed my search to a few properties in Murrells Inlet, SC. I kept seeing Kent's face with a lot of stars next to his name in my search and decided to contact him with my preferences. He responded immediately as to what was available and scheduled as many showings as humanly possible during my two day visit to the area. After looking at a few, I just wasn't feeling it until we showed up at the little cottage I ended up buying! At the end of the day, his fine negotiating skills got me a price I was very happy with. He knows the area very well and was easy to work with. Thanks for everything, Kent! Less ... More

Kent was great in helping us find and purchase a home. He was responsive to our need to meet on weekends, and helped us to quickly narrow down a location. He also provided names of local contacts for services. His knowledge of the area and insights were valuable in selecting the perfect neighborhood for our family. We recommend Kent highly.

My husband and I are considering relocating to the Myrtle Beach area and choose Kent based on reviews we found on line. He sent us lots of homes to view on line prior to our visit, set up many viewings and spent almost an entire day with us. He was very knowledgable about the area and purchasing real estate. He stayed in touch with us prior, throughout and after our visit. We decided to hold off on purchasing until we sold our current home and Kent understands this decision and is willing to continue to update us on real estate in SC. We enjoyed our time with Kent and he made it fun looking at homes. When we continue our search we will use Kent again and recommend him to anyone looking for homes in the Myrtle Beach area. Less ...

Kent has been a hard working agent that totally knew what my wife and I were looking for. He showed us numerous houses, but he knew that we would find the right one for us. He did that and more. The house he found fit EVERYONE of the things we wanted on our wish list and then some. Kent is a dedicated real estate agent and really treats you like you have been friends for years. I wouldn't think of using or recommending another real estate agent then Kent Covington. Kent also sold the house I owned recently. Less ... More

Kent helped me find the condo I wanted close to the beach and made sure I closed within 30 days. It was a Fannie Mae foreclosure and all went well because Kent and his office knew the ropes. They kept me informed every step of the way. I will have Kent help family and friends.

Helped me find a home to rent
The main reason I chose Kent as my realtor was that he went to college specifically to pursue a career in real estate, something few others do. It showed he had a long term career interest and a dedication to the industry. On short notice, I decided to relocate to the Myrtle Beach area and enlisted Kent to guide me through the area. He immediately provided invaluable insight into the local area and what neighborhoods would meet my criteria. After an extensive exploration of the housing available, I decided to wait and rent for a year before making a purchase. This did not deter Kent and his level of professionalism never flagged. Since I live in New Jersey, some rental communities require a personal visit to prospective properties before agreeing to a lease. Kent went way above and beyond by visiting the units I had an interest in and suggesting his evaluation. As a result I have leased a beautiful townhouse in Pawley's Island and am looking forward to enjoying the many amenities offered by South Carolina. I highly recommend Kent for his competence, trustworthiness, knowledge and, yes, his great personality. Less ... More

I recently purchased a townhome in murrells inlet sc with the exceptional service provided by my agent, Kent. Since I am relocating from out of state, I needed some extra guidance regarding the area and had to coordinate many things. In each instance, Kent provided excellent advice and helped throughout the buying process. I highly recommend him for any buying/ selling needs.

My husband and I had the privilege of working with Kent Covington from Weichert, who showed us real estate in the Myrtle Beach area. We provided Kent with our specifics and he was fantastic. We spent an entire day seeing one fabulous place after another. Because of that it was very difficult for us to make our decision not only about location but what we really wanted to invest in. He really knew the area, the real estate that he showed us, the things to consider and keep in mind and so much more. He was totally focused on what we wanted and showed us places that we hadn?t even thought would be in our selection but became part of our choices. Kent was incredibly professional and went the extra mile to make sure that we had all the information we needed to make a decision. Weichert is very lucky to have an asset such as Kent who is not only customer savvy but incredibly knowledgeable. He is what I call ?Value Add?. Less ... More

We are from New Jersey and recently purchased a second home in the Myrtle Beach area and I stumbled upon Kent's listings, so I gave him a try. That said, not only was Kent professional and extremely knowledgeable in the local market, but he was punctual, well spoken, and ultimately made shopping for a home a pleasant experience. Although I am incredibly busy-and have never posted a review, I wanted to take time to recommend Kent to anyone looking for a realtor in the Myrtle Beach area.

We recomend Kent for his involvement in selling our beach condo at Crescent Shores and not only selling it but getting multiple offers and selling it for more than the asking price. Unheard of in today's marketplace. He was efficient and market savvy in his marking plan.
