Having moved nine times in 30 years , we never have experienced anything close to the customer service that we received in dealing with Coastal Sands Realty! Michael and Rose spent two days in June a Sunday and Monday showing us properties that covered a twenty mile stretch from Pawley's Island to North Myrtle Beach. We eventually settled on a beautiful condo in Magnolia Pointe near everything that we were looking for in a wonderful community.
Their attention to detail went beyond our expectations: from providing phone numbers for the Utility and Cable companies to driving us around to hi-lite local necessities such as store, pharmacies, churches, and hospitals all after we purchased our condo.... there is only one choice if your looking to settle in Myrtle Beach, Coastal Sands Realty!! Their 20 years experience will make your purchase a fun and seamless experience!!

One of the best business experiences I’ve ever had! You all were so thoughtful, informed, and warm that it made the searching an absolute pleasure.
Charley & Laura- Ft Mill, SC
Thanks to you and Rose for all your help throughout the past 10 years! I was so nervous about the sale, and you guided every step and communicated all the information, taking the nerves out of it. We can't thank you enough. Would be happy to be a reference if you ever have a seller as worried as me.
Mary Jo & Ray- Elgin, SC
Thank you for helping me acquire the condo at the Ocean Reef. As before, you did another outstanding job. I meant what I said at the closing: I've had a dozen realtors over the years, and you're the best!

When my brother past away unexpectedly, I was left with the unenviable task of sorting through his financial holdings including the property he owned in North Myrtle Beach. I discovered that Coastal Sands had handled the original sale of the property to my brother and reached out to them to see if I could gather some additional information. From the first moment, Michael and Rose went out of their way to help. They provided me with a lot of background information; arranged for a contractor to take care of some repairs and upgrades; took care of donating some unwanted furnishings to a local charity and even went through some remaining personal belongs to make sure that nothing got lost in the shuffle. Throughout the entire process of selling this property they made it a point of keeping me informed and took it upon themselves to work directly with the estate's attorney to make sure all of the necessary paperwork was taken care.
Michael and Rose are not only consummate professionals but truly kindhearted and compassionate people. Despite the situation, it has been a true pleasure working with both of them and I am forever grateful for all of their help. I could not possibly recommend them more highly!

Just wanted to let you know how very pleased we have been with our condo in Myrtle Beach. Your very knowledgeable and personal approach helped us feel very well taken care of in looking at potential properties we had in mind to purchase. Not being from the area it was a little intimidating at first to know where to focus our attention. Within a couple of hours we were really able to choose where we wanted to be and you found us exactly everything that was on our wants and need list. We have been in our condo for almost 2 years now and feel so extremely pleased.
Our purchasing experience was so very easy and comfortable knowing you were there for us along each step. Your website was very helpful in becoming aware of what was available in the area and helped to get a feel for Myrtle Beach. The booklet you put together with all the potential properties showed how much time and effort you put into your service for your clients and it really lended to how much we appreciated your professionalism. You are both great ambassadors for Myrtle Beach and thank you for keeping in touch. We still visit the website to keep up on what's going on in the area when we are away. We certainly would come back to you for any other real estate opportunities and would recommend your company to our family and friends. All the very best for continued success.
Jane & Greg - Ontario, Canada
We have nothing but the highest praise for everything you have done for us. We have sold property with you, we have purchased property with you, and friends have purchased property with you based on our recommendation. You always have the best interest of your clients (buyer or seller) in mind. Your advice is always accurate and so very prompt. You are always accessible and more than courteous. No one could ask for anything more than you give. You are the best!
Thank you for everything,
Dan & Connie - North East, Pa & Myrtle Beach, SC
Rose and Michael are the very best real estate team on the entire Grand Strand. We recently purchased a home in Surfside Beach. We moved to our new home from Cincinnati, Ohio. Rose and Michael helped us with every aspect of a long distance home search and purchase. They paid every attention to every detail and were there for us for every step of the process. If you are considering a home in the Myrtle Beach area, we highly recommend Coastal Sands Realty. You will get the individual time and attention to finding the perfect home for your needs and budget with two of the nicest and most reliable people in the business. We are extremely grateful to have found Coastal Sands to help us find our new home. Thank you so very much Rose and Michael for everything you did for us. You are simply the greatest!

Words can not express how thankful we are to you in helping us purchase our new home. We are thrilled beyond words with the house. We will recommend your company to friends looking to come South. Thank you again for your kind service.
Whalens - Pawleys Island, SC
Rose and Michael have provided market information, support and constant attention to our buying and sales processes, through the purchase of our first Myrtle Beach home, and selling it to move up into our current beautiful home! They have been able to answer our many questions and give us solid advice for our transactions, as well as helping us to find the other professionals we needed. Plus! They are simply really nice, honest people that we enjoy working with!
Diggs - Ellicott, MD
When I started thinking of Short Selling my condo, I imagined nothing but an embarrassing, impossible and endless task. I was fortunate to call you for advice as I didn’t know where to begin. Your daily guidance made my sale relatively quick and painless. In fact, I never expected the sale would be as smooth and as fast as it turned-out to be. I do not believe I could have properly completed all the bank forms and final sale with out your expert advice and efforts. Jane and I thank you for your excellent service. I hope you can do the same for others.

We have used Coastal Sands for 5 years and are huge believers in Rose and Michael. We have bought two homes and sold one with them. They know the market and listen to our likes and dislikes. Most of all, we completely trust Michael and Rose to work for our interests with complete integrity, Coastal Sands is a great Myrtle Beach Realtor to use.
Jim and Carol - Baltimore residents that enjoy a little piece of heaven in South Carolina.
Thank you for the awesome dedication in finding our new home. The unwavering support and guidance we received were second to none. Coastal Sands Realty will always be our recommendation for the best realty company on the Grand Strand.
Marg & Wanda - Surfside Beach, SC
I want to say thanks to Mike and Rose for helping my family live our dream by purchasing a home at the beach. They were very accommodating in both viewing properties and helping to coordinate settlement while being out of state. Thanks again all for all your help. We are loving our beach home.
Sarley - Lewisberry, Pa
We recently purchased an oceanfront condominium in Myrtle Beach through Rose and Mike Foggotte of Coastal Sands Realty. This was all new to us and being out of state added even more challenges, but Mike walked us through every step of the way. He did not hurry us with our decision making and always pointed out the pros and cons with each condo we showed an interest in. Mike was always available and very quick to respond to any questions we had by phone or email and although Mike was our realtor, Rose was always ready to help out if needed as well. Once our decision was made and our purchase completed he remained a tremendous help to us. He recommended furniture stores, painters, made suggestions for rental, and because we could not be there, he checked on the work of the contractors we hired before we made payment. Throughout the whole process we had confidence and trust in not only their knowledge of the business and their professionalism, but also with knowing they were working completely on our behalf. Mike went above and beyond our expectations and it was a pleasure doing business with Rose and Mike Foggotte of Coastal Sands Realty.
Fyten - Cheimsford, MA
Michael and Rose took such great care of my husband and I in our first home buying experience. They made us feel like family and took care of every little problem that came up. While we knew everything that was going on....we didn't have to worry about doing anything. I would highly recommend Coastal Sands Realty. They really listen to what you want and need and don't just try to sell you a property. They care about their clients and want to make sure they find you the best options for what you want.
Walt & Brooke - Myrtle Beach, SC
Rose and Michael are simply the best team to work with. They are real, down to earth and very intuitive to our needs, sometimes more than we were ourselves. Rose was so quick to respond and Michael was always available to show us properties, even at odd times of the day. I never felt like a burden to either of them as I’ve been made to feel by other agents in the area.
Even though this was our third time around purchasing a home, they taught us many things about buy/selling in the area. If you don’t work with Rose and Michael you will really miss out on a great team, great experience and some very wonderful people.
Ricker & Reeves - Surfside Beach, SC
I recently became interested in searching for property in the Myrtle Beach area, and came into contact with Rose and Michael Foggotte with Coastal Sands Realty, and am very pleased with this association.They made my search worry free, hassle free, and handled all the tedious work on our behalf. All we had to do was to drive to Myrtle Beach, and look at the properties they had lined up for us. The end result was to the best of our needs and wants, and I could not ask for a better realty company. Thank you Michael and Rose for our new home, and making this investment a true win for us! You both are great!
Anthony Mixon and Gary Forseth - Charleston, SC
If you are looking for real estate in Myrtle Beach, I highly recommend Coastal Sands Realty. Michael and Rose were amazing to work with. As buyers from out of town, they went above and beyond our expectations.
Michael is extremely knowledgeable of the local market and he clearly had our best interest in mind from the very start. Our family worked with Michael and Rose for over a year to find the perfect vacation home before we made our purchase in April 2011. We couldn't of been more pleased with the level of service we received and the personal "family" touch they provided. We have already recommended them to several potential buyers we have met while visiting our new vacation home. Thanks again!
The Phillips Family - Winston Salem, NC
We worked with Michael and Rose when we were looking for a condo, which we have enjoyed for 14 years, and of course called them when we were ready to sell. The Personal service we received from Michael was excellent. He was prompt in getting back to us, either by email or phone.
We would not hesitate to call or recommend Coastal Sands Realty.
Paul & Sandy Bolick - Hickory, NC
Looking for a condo in Myrtle Beach..... so were we. Looking for agents who are honest, reliable and go that extra mile for their clients.... so were we.
We were so fortunate to find Rose & Michael Foggotte of Coastal Sands Realty, to guide us on our journey and help us with the purchase of our condo in Myrtle Beach. We will certainly recommend Rose & Michael to our friends....Thank You once again for making our dream come true.
Ray & Anne - Pickering, Ontario
We worked with Michael and Rose Foggotte to find our first home and they made our home buying experience a positive one. Moving from out of state to Myrtle Beach, we needed guidance and to work with someone who understood the area very well. They are professional, knowledgeable, organized, and very warm people. They assured us throughout the process that they were here for us and they always were. They were always responsive and went above and beyond to accomodate our needs and to answer our questions. Most importantly, we trust them. We honestly feel that they look out for their clients' best interests. We would certainly work with them again and would highly recommend them to a family member or friend. We are now proud homeowners and could not be happier! We have Michael and Rose to thank for such a great experience and we found great friends in both of them.
Michael and Joanna Morgan, Myrtle Beach, SC
Michael and Rose work great together and make a great team. They made the entire experience of purchasing a condo in Myrtle Beach from out of town a completely stress-free experience. From the fun day we had looking at the various properties to the numerous details of closing from out of state, they were professional, extremely helpful and prompt with answering all the questions we had, which were many. We also appreciated the follow up they gave us after the close with names of companies in the area that they trust to do various work on our new place.We will definitely be using Michael and Rose if and when we purchase another place in Myrtle, and will always highly recommend them to anyone looking to find a realtor in the area.
Sharon and David Thompson, PA
It is such an honor to write this testimonial for Mike and Rose Foggotte of Coastal Sands Realty.Before I tell my story….I just need to express my eternal gratitude for all Mike and Rose have done for my family. I have never experienced such a closeness and family like feeling during a transaction of this nature. The Foggotte’s went above and beyond to satisfy me and make coming to our new home for the first time a pleasure!
I found Coastal Sands Realty on the web back in April 2010 once we contacted them; I received an immediate response from Mike and Rose Foggotte. I explained to Mike what we were looking for and he followed up with searches which met our criteria.
Living in New York and trying to look at real estate agent hundreds of miles away can be a bit challenging but Mike and Rose Foggotte simplified that process and made it extremely smooth for us. When we finally were able to make a trip to South Carolina to check out their findings, Mike showed us exactly what we asked to see while applying no pressure. Mike and Rose were in contact every step of the way from searching through closing on our vacation home. Their quick response to questions via phone calls and/or e-mails and resources were highly commendable.
We could not have asked for better realtors than Mike and Rose Foggotte. Thanks so much Mike and Rose. You are a true professionals and pleasure to work with. We look forward to many years in our new vacation home! I have already recommended Coastal Sands Realty three times and will do a million times more!
Liz & Anthony Cappa, New York, New York
You don't know how happy it makes me feel to know you and Mike are there for me. I feel you are not only professionals, but friends and I value your opinions. You make a good team.
Yvonne Goyins, Roselle NJ
As a young family from Canada , we've been visiting Myrtle Beach yearly for a couple of years now. Though this isn't a long time, it was long enough for us to figure out that we loved the area/beach/attractions and people. When we are not there, we really miss it. This being said, we were at a point where we wanted to fulfill our life long dream of owning a summer home. This is where we accidentally stumbled upon Rose and Mike Foggotte since they were right in the neighborhood where we usually stay. Luck must have been on our side since they were invaluable in helping our dream come true. When we were ready to buy, Mike was always there to answer all of our questions and concerns. When he wasn't available, he or Rose always called us back in a timely manner as he said he would. Mike never pressured us into anything and as he always told us, " This should be a joyous experience and not a stressful one". When I went down in person to view our potential properties, Mike and Rose not only showed me those properties but a slew of other listings they thought fit my criteria to ensure I had all the facts to make an informed decision. Finally, since the property has closed, Rose and Mike still keep in touch and assure us that if there is anything we need, we should just let them know. We know that they have gone well above and beyond the call of duty as realtors. We highly recommend Coastal Sands Realty to anyone looking for an honest, dependable, hardworking, and trustworthy realtor to find that perfect home. Not only do we consider Rose and Mike Foggotte our contacts in Myrtle Beach, we are also proud to think of them as our friends.
Peter and Daniela, Hamilton Ontario
Our experience with Mike and Rose was very positive and we have and would recommend them to our friends.
Bob and Pat Firman, Edgely PA
Thanks for all your help. Your customer service and responsiveness were truly spectacular.
John and Anne Rogers, Arlington VT
My husband and I always wanted to own a second home as an investment, but we could never overcome our fears and take the plunge. That all changed when we met with Mike and Rose. They understood our trepidation so we were given past and current market information; this enabled us to make an educated decision. Mike was incredibly patient as he answered our numerous questions and brought us to as many places as we wanted. We spent two full days looking and Mike understood the need to find the "just right place" for us. We never felt pressured to buy; on the contrary Mike explained why some places were not the best investment for our needs. Throughout the entire process Mike and Rose delivered outstanding service answering questions and offering expert advice.
Tom and Chrissy Pergolizzi, Stormville NY
Just wanted to pass on my thanks and appreciation for everything you guys did to help me during the search and close process for my new condo. You guys went out of your way to be flexible with your time and were extremely responsive and timely in your follow up. Even when you weren't the people responsible for the action, you took the responsibility and the lead to have it completed. I also appreciate your willingness to do the walk through of the unit and treat it as if its one of your own.
I will absolutely recommend your office to any of my friends and colleagues who are interested in property in Myrtle Beach. You both have made this process a much easier one and your service delivery to me as a customer was one that exceeded my expectations.
Jim and Danielle Colombaris, Randolph NJ
Two of the most kind, honest and principled people we have ever known, Michael and Rose Foggotte made a significant impact on our lives. Being from the north and knowing so little about the south we were treated like family from our southern 'relatives'. Mike and Rose give more than just their time, they provide their clients with plenty of information about the beautiful communities of Myrtle Beach and allow others to feel comfortable when making such an important decision. There is no 'hard sell' in any way shape or form. They love their work, have a strong desire to please their clients and are committed to making your beach home dream-come true!
Michael and Linda Moretti, Woodbridge CT
After several years of vacationing in Myrtle Beach we decided to take the big leap and purchase our own condo at Forest Dunes. As Canadians we were a little nervous to be purchasing property in the United States. However, we received excellent advise and service from Rose and Michael Foggotte at Coastal Sands Realty. Michael was great at helping us with a realistic purchase price and he also did the final walk through of the condo as we are out of the country. The personal service we received was excellent and we would recommend Coastal Sand Realty to anyone wishing to purchase real estate on the beach!!
Tim and Judy Brown, Waterloo Ontario
"..Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the outstanding job you did for us in helping us to find our "Southern dream home". From our first telephone call to receiving the keys to our new condo, we were treated with both friendship as well as professionalism. In these challenging financial times, you made this transaction go through without any problems. Thanks again, your good friends from Maine,
Rich and Marianne Alfieri, Augusta ME
"..I am retired and moving from New Jersey to South Carolina was a major move for me. Mike painstakingly showed me each of the properties in which I was interested and in narrowing my search Mike answered each question I had and we discussed each property in detail...I could go on and on about how Coastal Sands Realty helped me find the property that I eventually purchased but it distills to this: Mike Foggotte was absolutely indispensable in my property search and I would recommend him to my best of friends.
Thanks Coastal Sands Realty, thanks Mike.
John B Becza, Myrtle Beach SC
"..want to thank you for your excellent service in keeping me informed about the market, and you always returned my calls. Most of all you gave me respect and did not pressure me and you did sell our property. I was really pleasantly surprised how well the closing went because I lived out of state and could not attend the closing in person. I highly recommend your company and you can tell your potential clients to feel free to call me if they want to hear about your excellent services.
