*Licensed Realtor and Real Estate Broker for North and South Carolina.

Marshall Winstead is a Real Estate Broker and Co-Owner of Cooper Southern Properties, Inc. He was born in Charleston, SC and graduated from South Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, NC. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from UNC Charlotte.

Marshall has always been very involved in his community serving where he can to make a difference. He has been active in the Rotary Club Foundation and is a “Paul Harris Fellow”. He is active in several outdoor sports and enjoys participating in swimming, mountain biking, and triathlons.

Marshall owned and operated a window and door/ renovation company for several years until 1997. He is a licensed building contractor and has always enjoyed the construction industry and working with homes.

In 1997 Marshall went to work in the new home industry as Realtor/Broker for the largest privately-owned home building company in N. C. He gained valuable experience there and realized that this combination of building and home sells was the type of work he loved best.

In 2001 Marshall’s brother, a well-known architect in Newton NC, encouraged him to move to the area, join him in some joint construction ventures, and consider opening a real estate company. Marshall made that move and enjoyed the time there working with his brother. After moving to Newton, Marshall met his future wife, Marissa, who was also starting a real estate company of her own. They worked together on several projects and soon decided to join efforts and work together in nearby Taylorsville, NC.

Marissa and Marshall made a great team and created a successful real estate firm that in 2007 was named Alexander County’s Small Business of the Year. They were presented with the “Reader’s Choice Award” as Alexander County’s “Best Real Estate Firm” for seven years in a row from 2014-2020.

Marshall was born in Charleston, SC and spent several of his early years living in various coastal areas. He and his family have always loved the beach areas and the active lifestyle that they offer. They had often dreamed of moving their home and business to the shore and after operating their company in the mountain foothills for seventeen years Marshall and Marissa decided to follow that passion. They relocated “Cooper Southern Properties” to North Myrtle Beach and are helping clients with homes along the coast from Southport to Murrell’s Inlet.

Marshall loves staying active and involved in the community. He is invested and committed to helping make North Myrtle Beach and the surrounding areas a great place to live and work and looks forward to helping others discover this little piece of heaven.
