Our Company's History
North Beach Realty was founded in January 2008 by Ed Thomas, Clay Branyon, Tim Thomas, and Chris Sarratt. We’re an independent real estate firm, founded by a group of local real estate professionals focused on providing exceptional customer service through hard work, meticulous market research, and attention to detail. Ed Thomas has been in the real estate business since the early 1970’s. First in Columbia, South Carolina, until the 1980’s when he moved to North Myrtle Beach, where he developed several of the high-rise projects built during the time. Clay, Tim, and Chris were recruited by Ed Thomas in 2002 to start a real estate sales team at another company, and in 2008 collaborated on the founding of North Beach Realty.
The company was founded with the idea of being an outstanding, client focused, real estate firm as well as being the best, if not the biggest, vacation rental company in North Myrtle Beach. Being members of the North Myrtle Beach community ourselves, we do our best to support our local organizations including churches and youth sports teams.
North Myrtle Beach offers a great beach atmosphere without the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach. Whether you’re looking to move to the area or visit on your next vacation, we’d love to help guide you through the rental or real estate process.
