The Cyberstars, founded by Allen Hainge with 4 original members, has grown to include approximately 200 real estate agents from the United States, Australia, Bahamas and Canada. It's a very exclusive group of real estate agents. There are only 3 Cyberstar Realtors in South Carolina and I am the only Columbia area member. Each CyberStars member agent must:
- be a leading sales associate in his or her marketplace
- have a demonstrated commitment to the use of technology and a custom website
- share real estate technology ideas and strategies with other CyberStars
CLICK HERE to see the CyberStars lineup
It was amazing to be in a large room with top real estate agents sharing real estate and business technology and ideas in a very fast-paced learning environment. Every agent in the room had a laptop PC. It was awesome to see over 110 PCs in one room!
Over time, I will be sharing some strategies and tips that I have learned. I have already implemented a few (example: click to see my Columbia Buyer's Guide in Issuu ebook format) and more will come. Watch my blog for exciting CyberStars idea implementations from Mel Coker.

I've got a brand new listing for sale on Lake Murray! My clients have had the interior completely repainted. The home is beautiful inside. With a mostly brick exterior (some stucco on the front), the home is virtually maintenance free on the outside. On 149 feet of Lake Murray water frontage, there is a nice dock and boat lift. From the deck, the westerly view offers beautiful sunsets.
This beautiful home is approximately 3300 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. The master bedroom is downstairs and there is a second master bedroom upstairs. Both bedrooms upstairs on the back side feature balconies overlooking Lake Murray. Hardwoods are downstairs except in the master bedroom. The kitchen is very spacious with lots of cabinets. There is another room... A bonus room (oftentimes called a FROG in this market). This room works great for a media room, exercise room or game room. In fact, the pool table in the room stays with the home as a bonus.
This home is located at 49 Bay Court in Plantation Pointes Subdivision in Newberry County. The home is priced to sell at $512,500.
