Introduce me to your family.
Ron Frost is my partner, we are married, and Nini is our 5-year-old Maltese. I’m actually a distant relation to Lieutenant William Glover Farrow (for whom Farrow Pkwy is named).
Why did you move to Market Common?
Rena my realtor, and who is like an angel, is the reason why we came to The Market Common. Years ago, Myrtle Beach was the first vacation that we could afford, and we ended up buying a vacation home here. We were so disappointed though, because we ended up not liking the area. Then from 650 miles away, I got a postcard from Rena asking if we wanted to sell. She introduced us to the Market Common and everything we love, and we became so close we consider her family. Now, we live on Howard Avenue, and we’re building a new place at the Battery.
Where are all the places you came from?
We’ve lived in Northumberland, Pennsylvania; Rehoboth Beach, really close to Joe Biden; Chong Qing, China; and Newark, Delaware.
Do you have a favorite place in the Market Common?
What’s your favorite thing about living in the Market Common?
To me, it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s safe, the neighbors are amazing, and most importantly, everything is within walking distance. Everything is just beautiful and I feel at home. I felt at home from the first moment I moved in when we were greeted by our neighbors who were so friendly— it’s just the best experience I’ve ever had.
How has your lifestyle changed since moving here?
A lot of places where we lived, we couldn’t be who we really are. I feel free here; everybody is very open minded. It’s a different type of people.
What new activities have you taken up since moving here?
We’re into exercising a lot. We go to the beach all the time.
Can you share one quirky fact with us about your family?
Every time we invite friends from Pennsylvania down here, they end up moving here. So far it’s happened three times.
What are your favorite things to do here?
I would say relaxing at the pool, beach, and hot tub. We also like to go to the bookstore, and the Carolina Opry.
