Serving its clients and communities, Cooper Southern Properties, Inc., has been committed to providing honest and professional real estate services to the Carolinas since 2003. 

Established in the Foothills of North Carolina, the award-winning firm is now located in the Cherry Grove area of North Myrtle Beach, and they continue to provide the same quality service to help clients with their real estate needs from Southport, North Carolina, to Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.

Owners Marshall and Marissa Cooper Winstead are dedicated to providing the highest level of personal service and attention to their clients, and their success has been noticed. In North Carolina, Marissa was recognized by Catawba County’s Business to Business program as one of the Top 20 Entrepreneurs Under the Age Of 40 and, under her guidance, Cooper Southern Properties was chosen as Alexander County 2007 Small Business of The Year. Marshall has an extensive background in home construction, sales and general brokerage. Together, they have been recognized for their ongoing professional service to their community and were awarded The Taylorsville Times Readers’ Choice Award as Alexander County’s Best Real Estate Firm from 2014–2020.

Marshall and Marissa enjoy kayaking, running, biking and swimming. They have also been active in numerous civic and charitable organizations, including the Rotary Club Foundation, and are both Paul Harris Fellows. Marissa is an Army veteran who enjoyed being based out of Vilseck, Germany. The couple are very proud of their daughter, who is following in her mom’s Army footsteps and is now attending the US Military Academy at West Point. She will be commissioned as an Army officer in 2022.

Cooper Southern Properties, Inc., has been very active and involved in their community. Now, they are invested and committed to helping make North Myrtle Beach and the surrounding areas great places to live and work.
