Providing Real Estate Services in Simpsonville, SC and Surrounding Areas
I was born in Johnson City, Tennessee and raised in Elizabethton graduating from Elizabethton High School in 1963. From there I attended East Tennessee State University graduating with a Bachelor of Science in 1967. Upon graduation from ETSU, I was commissioned an Officer through the ROC Program in the US NAVY as an Ensign in December of 1967. Duty consisted of Electronic Material Officer(EMO) on DD-709 and then shore duty in Subic Bay, Philippines.
From 1971 to 1981 I worked in various marketing and sales positions with Xerox Corporations, Ingersoll Rand, and Honeywell Information Systems. In 1981 until 1998, I relied on my military background and training to work in the Aerospace and Defense industry in sales, marketing, and Director of Marketing positions in the following companies: Norden Systems(UTC), Sanders Associates(a Lockheed Company), Hercules Defense and Electronics, Smiths Industries, and AlliedSignal Aerospace. In my last position in Aerospace I was Director, Environmental Control Systems and Space, for AlliedSignal Aerospace in Torrance, California.
In 1998 I bought my own company in Mendham, NJ (Mendham Fireplace Center, Inc) and ran it for eight years. At this time, my wife, Jean Marie Hurt was retiring from AT&T after 27 years so we decided to move south to South Carolina and landed in Myrtle Beach in 2005.
During many of those years working for major corporations I had always been interested in real estate and had my license in Florida, New Hampshire, and New Jersey working for many well known real estate companies either on a referral basis or on the weekends as available. The move to Myrtle Beach gave me the opportunity to go full time in real estate, and from 2005 until 2015, that’s what I did. We moved to Simpsonville, SC in November of 2015 and took two years to settle into the Upstate. In December of 2017, I reactivated my Broker license with the State of South Carolina and was able to affiliate with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in Simpsonville, SC.
We would like to take this opportunity to recommend Bob Hurt as a realtor.
Bob was our realtor when we purchased our winter condo in Myrtle Beach, SC. He was an awesome listener taking the time to fully understand exactly what it was we were looking for. He showed us many homes, never pressuring, and being sure we saw a true mix of homes in the area so we could understand the market better. In doing this, he confined the showings to homes that met our criteria, even as the criteria changed. Once we found the home we were looking for he was very adept at what paperwork needed to be completed for the purchase the home.
We only owned our home for a short period of time. When it came time to sell our home, we knew there was only one realtor we would use, Bob Hurt. He was equally adept at selling a home as he was when we purchased our home. He provided a market analysis of the homes like ours in the area and helped us determine a fair market price for our home. The home sold quickly and we were very pleased with the selling price. Bob helped us through the closing and any issues along the way were handled promptly and professionally.
It is our opinion that Bob knows the real estate business very well. He is also very personable and we enjoyed having him as our agent. If we ever have any real estate needs in the greater Greenville SC area, we would certainly use his services again and would highly recommend him to others that have real estate needs in his area.
