MaryEllen Wilkinson has a powerful
connection to the mountains of
South Carolina. Indeed, her family
has been here for five generations. As a child, she
spent almost every weekend on the family farm. "I
fell in love with nature," she remembers, "and I spent
as much time as possible on horseback!" At that time
the area's 90,000 acres of timberland hadn't yet begun
its profound transformation into a resort location.
So whenever she got the chance, MaryEllen loved
exploring the mountains that surrounded the farm.
A Life Journey
A tennis scholarship took MaryEllen to college, where
she earned a degree in Marketing & Real Estate. She
worked as a tennis pro in Lake Placid, where she helped
to lease and manage rental properties for the Olympics.
But MaryEllen missed the mountains, so she returned
to Greenville, where she joined the Hyatt as Assistant
Manager. She went on to successfully supervise
construction on the property. When the opportunity
arose to supervise the construction on another Hyatt
property in Florida, MaryEllen refused it. She didn't
want to leave the mountains ever again, and she wanted
her three children to enjoy the same life she'd known.
A Local Calling
MaryEllen has never regretted that decision, and
she's carrying on her family legacy by helping others
enjoy the mountains in her career as a real estate
professional. A true mountain expert, MaryEllen offers extensive knowledge on the surrounding landforms
and works with a team of qualified engineers to ensure
maximum accessibility. Her expertise covers properties
ranging from large timber tracts to the smallest river
or lake front lots. And with a background in real
estate that encompasses both rental and property
management, she's equally skilled with vacation homes
and year-round residences.
A Natural Legacy
As someone with a strong family connection to the
land, MaryEllen understands just how important the
land is to those who have lived a lifetime here. She was
broken hearted to have to sell her family's farm, so she
knows personally how emotional the real estate process
can be. That's why her goal is the happiness of all the
parties involved. MaryEllen tries to ensure that land
tracts are divided to everyone's satisfaction, negotiating agreements that give buyers maximum use of their
property while allowing sellers to sometimes remain on
part of the land that's been in their family for years.
Whether you've lived here a lifetime or have only
recently fallen in love with the mountains of
South Carolina, MaryEllen Wilkinson is the
professional who will meet all your real estate needs.
