Positive experience with Garden City Reatly

12/11/2017 - Matthews House (former owner)
Owner Services

I am extremely pleased with Garden City Realty. They have been very helpful in renting my property. I called on them frequently for advice and was always confident of their ability to follow thru. Everyone was accommodating and very pleasant to work with. I could not have been successful had it not been for their hard working staff. Yes, oh yes, I would ‘reach out’ to GCR again, should the need occur. It has been my pleasure.

Great partnership with GCR

Owner Services

This year, we purchased and remodeled a beachfront home. This is our first venture owning a vacation rental property and we have been very pleased with our partnership with Garden City Realty. Everyone we have met and worked with, whether in senior management, real estate sales, guest services, housekeeping, maintenance or office staff, have all been responsive, helpful and professional. We could not have chosen a better group to work with, and would highly recommend Garden City Realty.

Expectations exceeded, thanks for another great season

Owner Services

"Thank you!" to Garden City Realty Team for another great rental season at the beach. You guys have far exceeded our expectations. As you know, we were using another property management company for the previous several years and were hesitant to change. I now can definitely say, ‘I am glad we switched!’ Our multiple properties have all had record revenue this year. Revenue is good, but combined with the friendly GCR service…it was FANTASTIC! We really appreciate the special time you gave us as we learned the GCR process. We have really enjoyed getting to know the GCR team both over the phone in our many conversations and it was also fun to meet you guys in person. It was easy to see you guys really enjoy what you are doing each day. We look forward to many more years of partnering together and sincerely thank you for all you do for us and our guests.

Enthusiastic staff, highly recommended services

Owner Services

This was our first season owning a rental home of any kind, and we could not be happier with Garden City Realty. Being new to this, we have had many questions and the staff has been so kind and enthusiastic, walking us through each step of the process. knowing that their assistance is only a phone call or email away has been priceless. We would give them the highest recommendation possible and look forward to our continued partnership.

Great first year as new vacation rental owners

08/18/2016 - Seaside Harmony
Owner Services

We would like to send a great big “THANK YOU!” to everyone at Garden City Realty. We are just now wrapping up our first year as new owners of a vacation rental property at the beach. Thanks to GCR it was an even more successful year than we had hoped. When we bought our property last Fall we had no prior experience in vacation rentals and no idea how even to get started. We knew we had a lot to learn and we knew we needed help.

So we called you at Garden City Realty. From our very first contact and throughout the entire year, everyone at GCR has been friendly, extremely helpful, and thoroughly professional. We could not have been more satisfied. You answered our many questions, made some great suggestions, did a superb job marketing our property, and helped us be good hosts for our guests. 

We’ve learned a lot in our first year. Mostly, we learned that we picked the right management company when we picked Garden City Realty. Thanks again for everything! 

Extended family, always there for me

I appreciate Garden City Realty because they are like an extended family- always there whenever needed.

Long-term relationship, couldn't be happier

09/23/2014 - Metzler
Owner Services

I have been with Garden City Realty since 1983 when I purchased my first beach house in South Carolina. I would have no one else look after my home and I have many times been approached by other realty companies in the area. Garden City Realty provides me with good renters and the maintenance department looks after the house as if it were their own. I could not be any happier, even after 17 years.

You can't think of the beach without thinking of Garden City Realty

08/17/2014 - Compass Rose, Unit 22
Owner Services

When you think of Garden City Beach, Garden City Realty comes to mind. Garden City Realty grew up with Garden City Beach and have done a fabulous job of helping the area become a favorite place to visit for years. They are up to date and always handle everything with ease and satisfaction. They are like family.

Through the years, GCR has always been there for us

03/14/2013 - Jennings Cottage
Owner Services

As soon as Garden City Realty opened for business close to forty years (fourty-five) ago, we put our vacation home with them with regards to summer rentals and all that entails. Through these many years, we have been more than pleased with our choice. They promptly address any concerns we have about our property and we feel they are responsive to our needs. We highly recommend Garden City Realty and we believe they will do all they can to see that your home is properly cared for and that it is rented as much as possible.

My first choice since 2005

02/05/2013 - Southern Breeze
Owner Services

I purchased my house in February 2005 and have been working with Garden City Realty since that time. After I hired GCR as my property manager, all worries and headaches about marketing the property, tenancy matters and repairs were history. GCR’s management service has been excellent and they are always very responsive. I believe they are the premier property management company in the area; they were my first choice and continue to be my first choice.

My suggestion: Don’t buy an investment property in the Surfside Beach area unless you consider GCR as your local property manager.
