 Favorite Core Value: Sportsmanship

“I have always loved watching one player being able to graciously win, while watching another player take off their hat , reach out their hand, look their opponent in the eye while congratulating them on their win.”

On Mentoring:

“Gene’s son, Wil and I became friends when I moved to N. Myrtle Beach in 1986 and played junior golf, high school golf, and college golf together. Golf brought Gene, Wil and I together early on in my life and I was fortunate to have traveled and played many rounds of golf with a man who I considered to be a mentor in my life in many ways. I could only hope to be as big of an influence on the juniors in our area as Gene was to me.”

T.J. moved to N. Myrtle Beach from Western Pa. in 1986 and has called South Carolina home ever since.    He played golf for N. Myrtle Beach high school and earned a golf scholarship to play for Coastal Carolina University. After taking a shot at playing golf for a living, he decided to get into real estate in 1998.  Since then, T.J. has helped many people buy and sell property along the Grand Strand. He works with RE/MAX Southern Shores and his favorite aspect of the real estate business is helping people call the Myrtle Beach area home like his family did back in 1986. T.J. has been married to wife Sherri since 2004 and they have two boys, Ty & Blake. When he is not working, he still enjoys playing competitive golf, traveling with his family, and coaching his two boys sports teams.
