What Clients Say

“We reside in New York State (but) I felt like I was standing side by side on site with him”

My wife and I came upon Sean through a contact after dealing with another real estate agent who seemed to care less about our search for an investment property in Surfside Beach.

Finding Sean Brooks was a Godsend. Sean was incredible, finding us properties to look at and finally settling on a property in Surfside Beach. After deciding on the property Sean took total control and walked us through the process without a flaw.

As we reside in New York State, we weren’t able to be on site or have the knowledge of local people to deal with. Sean was so pro-active, I felt like I was standing side by side on site with him. Whenever I would email or call him, he would respond almost immediately. Outstanding customer service like I have never seen in my life, this guy is incredible

“The long hours he devoted to us made it seem like we were his only clients…the highest standard of real estate professionalism” 

As my husband and I are both ex-Realtors, our standards are high. Sean met or exceeded all of our expectations as a professional, and was an outstanding Buyer Agent . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone!

As out-of-town buyers, our time to purchase a house was limited. At our request, Sean showed us 32 homes in 2 days, and provided us with MLS sheets, neighborhood Rules and Regulations, and Covenants and Restrictions for each. We narrowed our search, made an offer and negotiated terms with the Seller for a property that we couldn’t agree to terms on.

We then wrote on a different home and were successful with contract negotiations. The long hours he devoted to us made it seem like we were his only clients, when in fact he had a business to run with other real estate transactions.

Because we were 550 miles from the area, Sean was there for our inspections in our place, discussing findings and options – sometimes contacting us multiple times a day. Because of his thoroughness and clearly going ‘above and beyond’ the job of a professional Realtor, we were able to have a smooth closing and move into a home for the next chapter of our lives. Sean Brooks and Linx Realty exemplify the highest standard of real estate professionalism.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone in the Grand Strand area: from Little River to Pawleys Island!

Investor says,  “Sean understood how to run the numbers (without) wasting any of my time…brilliant negotiator”

I worked with Sean on several different deals. I’m a real estate investor and Sean understood what kind of deals I wanted and understood how to run the numbers on them before even approaching me about them and wasting any of my time. He is a brilliant negotiator and always made sure that he had my best interest in mind.

He’s also a great marketer. I had a property last year that I needed to sell quickly. I tried marketing it myself to no avail. I turned it over to him and we had a sold deal in about a month. He understands the local market very well and current trends. He’s honest, reliable, and trustworthy. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.

We expected it to take 6 months to a year to sell, but you did it in about 3 days”


It has been a while since I sold a home and had to arrange a move; so I was not prepared for the physical and emotional stress it creates.  I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your efforts in going beyond what I might expect of a realtor and to provide so much help in this move.

I am sure we did not anticipate these challenges but you certainly were there to help us through them.

Remember we are a 75-year old couple and as much as I hate to admit it, change is difficult.  From our experience, I think  people who need to sell quickly would be even better served by your efforts.

I think as a seller you are never sure of how you should price your home.   Your suggestions were right on the mark.

I am positive now that your knowledge of our home and the market in which it is located meant we received the “top dollar” we would have liked to expect.

Your suggestions on how to provide the extras that made the sale happen seemed to show not only this knowledge of the market, but what would entice our specific buyer.   Entice the buyer you did.   We expected it would take 6 months to a year to sell but you did it in about 3 days.   You really know your market.

Your patience is what made the emotional side of the sale go so easily.  

It is difficult to leave a home that you have had for over 20 years, even if it was a vacation place for many of those years. Thanks for being calm and patient as we worked through it all.  You may not realize that the promptness of your responses made it so much easier. I sent you many a request at non-business hours but your responses were always there when we needed them.

You may also never appreciate the fact that while we live 400-miles away you made us feel that we were not vulnerable because of that distance.

I hope you will see this as just a thank you for being a part of our family and taking a special interest and an appreciation in our well being.

Remember you even were still helping after the sale was completed  !!!!!!!!!

No one is ever sure what they are going to get when they pick a realtor.   I am pleased we picked one with integrity and our best interest at the heart of their action.

His professionalism, honesty and integrity have captured him a client for life!”

My husband and I wanted to purchase property in South Carolina and had been looking for months at different options (land, condos, etc). When we found one we liked, we reached out to Doug and Sean and that was our lucky day!

Being from CT and trying to purchase property in SC was a little daunting but Sean was our eyes and ears. He went above and beyond repeatedly by videotaping the entire property and sending us the link so that we could “virtually tour” the home as it was uncertain as to whether or not be would get there in time to make an offer (a hot property!).

His communication was fantastic and when we did make it down to see the property and make an offer, Sean was ready, willing and able to get the offer in essentially immediately which ended up being one of many on that particular day! In addition to the home purchase, Sean was able to provide several financing contacts as well as home insurance options which made the entire financing experience about as smooth as any I’ve had.

It’s amazing what can be accomplished remotely! Overall, I can assure you that if I were to ever sell the current property or begin looking for an alternate property, Sean would be our go-to guy. His professionalism, integrity and honesty have captured him a client for life!

Obviously I admire his integrity and work ethic.”

Sean helped me sell a property last year and walked me through every step. He did all of the “foot work” as I live out of state.

He assisted me in locating another property to purchase as an investment and that experience was just as pleasant! I hope to purchase more property in the Myrtle Beach area soon and I absolutely will call on Sean again!

Obviously I admire his integrity and work ethic. You couldn’t ask for a more personable relationship with a realtor.

“Honest and puts the customers desires above all else”

Wonderful Realtor who is honest and puts the customers desires and wishes above all else. Sean has gone above what is expected and showed genuine care and consideration to me as a customer.

Helpful and thoughtful thru the entire process. I would recommend Sean to anyone looking for a home to either buy or rent. I am positive that if I was listing a house, Sean would provide his assistance and expertise to that process as well.
