How do I find a real estate agent that can help a Canadian purchase U.S. Property?

I'm Canadian and want to purchase a property in SC or NC for rental purposes as well as for my own vacation enjoyment and retirement. How do I find a qualified real estate agent in those states that I can trust and that can help me with this investment decision?

I work closely with a specialist in the vacation rental industry here in Myrtle Beach. I can get you in contact with him and go over important aspects of the rental investment side including occupancy rates, owner expectations, advertising, profit splits and income generation. I've learned a lot from him due to the fact that he only deals with the numbers when it comes to vacation rentals, especially short term (weekly) rentals. Feel free to contact me with questions and I can get you in touch with him as well. He's a beast when it comes to advertising and getting the most out of your rental. We can also guide you to the best properties which generate maximum profit. Hope this helps!

The best option for you is to take a Realtor who is certified as a Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist. They received special education and training on issues involved with those property purchases and upkeep.

If you need a recommendation let me know.
