Joanne Gillet, Owner/Broker, License No. 53243
Originally from Worcester, MA, my family and I, like many, migrated here in 2004 in search of a warmer climate. I’m not your typical northerner…my mother was from the south and my father was from the north, but I always have been more of a southern girl at heart. I worked in the dental field for over 20 years before I became a real estate agent. I am a proud mother of my daughter, Courtney who is a nurse in the Mount Pleasant/Charleston area, a son, Brandon in US Air Force, and he is married to my beautiful daughter-in-law Ann, my life is made complete by my amazingly sweet and funny grandchildren! I became a real estate agent after totally falling in love with Pawleys Island. I naturally love helping others, so I realized I could help many discover the beauty of this area and find their dream home or 2nd home. I have built a team of agents and staff who are dedicated to meeting the needs of our clients.
Sue Goree, Realtor, License No.56777
I moved from Trumbull, Connecticut to Pawleys Island with my husband Max in 2005.
I received my real estate license in 2006 and joined Keller Williams where I met Joanne Gillet.
My husband opened the Pawleys Island Bakery & Cafe in 2010 and real estate went on the back burner for a few years. With many years of experience in baking and cake decorating, I stepped in as a cake decorator making wedding, birthday, and all occasion cakes. The bakery took off so it became a full-time job. We are grateful to the community for all its support for the last 12 years.
I jumped back into the real estate business full time in 2015 and a few years later, Joanne established Edge of the Beach Realty.....I was happily recruited.
I really enjoy sharing my love for this area with people who are looking for a new place to call home. Many of my clients have become good friends and that is one of the greatest rewards in being a Realtor.
Terri Apostolopoulous, Realtor/Notary, License No. 116723
I have been in Real Estate since 2003 in and around Gettysburg PA. I had the privilege of assisting my clients in so many ways, be it a farm in the country or first-time homebuyers in the city or finding properties for the savvy investor. It has been the most exciting time of my life. I had the opportunity to create a business for myself in an industry that motivated and stimulated me every day.
In 2009, when the real estate market was drastically affected by the recession, I wanted to stay in the Real Estate industry and I did that through Property Management, Leasing, and managing a 200+ apartment community. Once our kids left the nest, in all our travels, we always loved South Carolina so in 2017, we put our home up for sale and decided to start a new chapter of our life! That was quite something, exciting and scary at the same time! Well, living here in Pawleys Island has been an absolute joy. I am thrilled to be a member of a great real estate team here in Pawleys Island with Edge of the Beach Realty. I will continue to grow and embrace what I do best with all of the knowledge and expertise that I have received in many years of sales in my chosen field. Eternally grateful to those who supported, encouraged, and taught me along the way!!

Lisa Arnold, Marketing
I moved to Pawleys Island over 17 years ago from chilly Massachusetts with many family members both immediate and extended. Living in a warmer climate near the beach with a tropical landscape was my criteria. Our area sure has lived up to its reputation. My soulmate husband, three precious sons, and I have made treasured friendships and enjoy unforgettable adventures living in this quaint beachside town. I’ve worked for Edge Of The Beach Realty for more than four years in an administrative and marketing role. Joanne’s honest, caring nature is reflective in her well-established real estate company, which makes working for her not only a pleasure but something I am proud to share. For personal interests, I write poetry for my husband’s incredible photography, I teach choreography to the local middle and high school theater students, I love to walk in nature with my sweet dog, Bella, and I love to meditate and practice Qi Gong on my porch. Recently, we bought a vintage 17ft. camper and look forward to many travels exploring this amazing countryside, but in the meanwhile, I’m grateful to call this beautiful area home.Linda Temperino, Administrative Manager
