Real Estate Broker, Executive Director
Drew McElveen is proud to say he is a true local. Born and raised in Murrells Inlet, he grew up involved in all sorts of area activities. Led to the University of South Carolina at Aiken, via a collegiate golf scholarship, Drew graduated Cum Laude in 2014 with a degree in Business Marketing. After college, he joined Garden City Realty as a Vacation Planner in the Rental department. Within a year, Drew began attending school to become a licensed Realtor® and shortly after receiving his license, was promoted to the management position of our Surf Master By The Sea office.
Since 2015, Drew has consistently looked for ways to improve owner relations and ensure that each guest experience is an exceptional one. He appreciates the feeling that comes with accomplishing a task and has truly worked to embody the vision that, “Every number has a name. Every name has a story. And every story matters to Garden City Realty.”
In 2021, Drew was promoted to Executive Director, overseeing the development and management of operations, finance, human resources, risk assessment, and community relations and outreach. A key part of his new role involves leading and managing personnel to develop, implement, and thereby, achieve company-wide objectives.
This was our second visit to Surfmaster. Both years the condos were lovely and well-equipped. However we discovered upon our arrival this year that a Pack-n-Play which had been advertised as being onsite was not present. I called the after-hours help line because we had family expected to arrive late at night with a baby. Within 10 minutes Drew McElveen was knocking at our door to investigate. He confirmed that the condo was missing the promised Pack’n’Play and a high chair. Drew went above and beyond to resolve our problem, going immediately to purchase the needed items and bring them to us. We are truly impressed by and grateful for this exemplary customer service. We look forward to continuing to make our vacation plans with Garden City Realty.Sharon
