Crescent Keyes in North Myrtle Beach SC   This two year old Oceanfront Condo project located in the Crescent Beach Section of North Myrtle Beach, has all the views and amenities desired by a very selective Buyer.   With around 100 condos in the building, superb water amenities, indoor/outdoor pools and lazy rivers, in-building parking, storage, weight room and unobstructed views of the Atlantic, this is certainly worth looking at when shopping for a 3 bedroom oceanfront condo.   Now may be the perfect time to buy one.  There are currently seven available 3BR/3BA units for sale priced between $456,900 to $559,900.  There have been no sales of a 3BR unit in the past 6 months (this is the paralysis period preceding a pricing plummet we've experienced in this area).    The HOA fees for a 3B...

  If you keep waiting for just the right time, you may never begin.  Begin now!  Begin where you are, with what you are.   You'll learn more about a road by traveling it than by consulting all the maps in the world.   The further up the hill you climb, the more you can see.   Myrtle Beach Homes by Mirela Monte                     Join The Optimist Group!

  I just saw a very sad movie.  When it ended, I was visibly disappointed.  My boyfriend turned to me and said:  "Was this too real for you?"  "Yes", I responded.  "If it was my movie, it would have ended differently.  If it was my movie, the protagonist would have moved elsewhere, he would have used the horrible thing that happened in his past to build with it, instead of destroying with it.  My movie would have been about lessons learnt, about introspection, about growth, about gratitude.  My movie would have had a happy ending."   I see the so called reality every day.   Bad things happen.  People are greedy and self centered and they try to take shortcuts in life.  There is disloyalty.  They cheat.  They lie.  They are self centered.  They hurt other people.  Is that reality?    Tha...

  Daylight Savings Time is coming to an end. This means most Americans will be setting their clocks back one hour and returning to Standard Time on Sunday, November 2nd at 2 a.m.   Although I don't like it - it gets dark too soon - I'll live with it - wake up earlier, go to bed earlier.   The last few occasions we had a time change, my I-phone went to the new time first and a few weeks later the Blackberry followed suit.  I know this has to do with that Congress mandated time change law, but I'm wondering: is that something that has been addressed, or should I count on the time discrepancy yet again?   I would appreciate any feedback from you!   Mirela Monte, Your Myrtle Beach Real Estate Connection

Some people are so afraid of failure that they never even try to turn their dreams into reality.   When I opened my first business in my early twenties, I read so many books on the subject of small business.  There was so much information and so many things these books were asking me to do before opening my doors.  Instead of studying for several years in order to become operational, I chose to just go ahead and do it: open my business and start making my mistakes.  I read everything I could and I followed a lot of the advice, mind you, I just did not follow all of the advice.    Did I make mistakes?  Yes, of course I did!  Could I have averted all those mistakes?   Some yes and some no.  Am I glad I did?  You bet!   When you set upon going up the hill, it all looks so different from th...

SHAG DANCING IS A GREAT WAY TO EXERCISE!!!  When I moved to Myrtle Beach, I found a new passion.  When I began shag dancing, I also found a great way to exercise.  North Myrtle Beach has night clubs where friends and visitor meet to dance the night away.  If you don't dance, you can still have a great time socializing.  Shag dancing requires a partner, but you do not have to be a couple in order to dance.  In fact, I enjoy dancing with different partners.  Come and join us!

1.     Consistently pursue your Education.  Our reality is changing so rapidly that education is not an option anymore, it is a necessity.  To that end, Active Rain is instrumental.  I also recommend daily reading of the Wall Street Journal, where one can obtain the same facts the big boys rely on, instead of the watered down version the rest of the media conveys.   The various courses offered by NAR are to be taken seriously, for the benefits far outweigh the cost.   •2.     Support our core organizations:  NAR and AR.  Making a concerted effort to support these two organizations with both time and money will strengthen our position as a whole.  Contribute to R-PAC by donating more than the perfunctory amount and get involved within your local boards.  Ensure that they are well manage...

I'm in my home now, which is shelter enough.  My office is less than a mile from the beach and I hope all is well there!  My home is about seven minutes to the beach, so I'm not that close. After that last BIG hurricane I went to the beach as soon as the storm ended and took numerous pictures that early morning.  The storm had eaten into the Cherry Grove Pier, practically chopping it in half.  The top of the pier had landed a couple of miles away on an Ocean Drive stretch of the beach by Tilghman Estates.  The tattered flag was still attached way at the top of it.  I watched as this young woman climbed up on it and retrieved the flag.  She had tears in her eyes.  I started talking with her.  Turned out she was one of the Princes (the family who owns the pier).  She had that stoic look ...

Myrtle Beach Hotels Oceanfront were thrilled to hear that a well known national chain, like Hard Rock Cafe,  had intentions of spending $450 million dollars to build a theme park in a central downtown location.  Property managers,  who rent Myrtle Beach Condos,  ratcheted up annual expectations to homeowners for increased Summer returns.  As of this writing in late August 2008, with just the Labor Day Summer weekend remaining,  it is clear that the park has underperformed in its first Summer out of the box.  The Park opened to great fan fare with South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford appearing and a sold out Rock and Roll concert that featured the Eagles.  Afterwards,  attendance,  which was budgeted at over 20,000 guests daily,  rarely averaged over 5,000 visitors on its best days.  In ...

Last night when I came home from celebrating a birthday, I noticed our sink drain was starting to get a funny smell. So, I grabbed the baking soda & vinegar to fix it. Right as I was about to begin, my wife asked, "Why don't you do a video about it for your blog?" I was stunned I had not thought of it! So, if you ever have a drain that has a bad smell, watch this brief video to learn how to clean it out and deodorize your sink quickly, safely, and easily. There are many other ways to clean your sink, but I think this way is one of the most fun and very safe. With toxicity becoming a more and more prevalant concerns, this is a completely non-toxic way to clean your drain. Here is the recipe I use: 3-4 Tablespoons Baking Soda2 Cups Distilled Vinegar2-3 Cups Hot Water If you have any quest...
