Director at Large (Present to 2020)
Michael Ritchie has lived in The Farm neighborhood of Carolina Forest since 2006. He moved to Myrtle Beach to enjoy the beautiful weather, friendly people, and cool ocean breeze.
Originally he grew up in Maryland, in the suburbs between Washington D.C. and Baltimore. That’s where he graduated from the University of Maryland Business School with a Marketing and General Business degree. He went on to become a Licensed Realtor working throughout the Maryland/Northern Virginia region.
While visiting family at the beach, he toured Carolina Forest and fell in love. It seemed like the perfect place for families and growing businesses. So he transferred his Realtor License to South Carolina and began working with Keller Williams. Later he would go on to become a Commercial Agent with Tradd Commercial, and now builds high-end custom homes for K&B Signature Homes. Well over a decade of real estate experience gives Michael a comprehensive knowledge of the development and planning process.
Michael looks forward to using his experience and time on the board to help the residents of Carolina Forest achieve a better way of life. He will be working with local HOA’s to create real solutions and facilitate constant communication between the various communities and their boards.
