Merritt was born and raised in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, and graduated from the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, with a B.S. degree in Marketing.
While growing up, her parents loved to buy, renovate and sell homes. This sparked Merritt’s early interest in real estate and interior design. After graduating, she moved to Charleston, SC, to work for a small interior design firm and was involved in every aspect of the business from social media marketing to design installations.
Merritt made the decision to move to Charlotte in 2018 to be near college friends and worked for a custom home builder helping clients select interior and exterior finishes. She joined HM Properties in the spring of 2019.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her friends, painting, being outside with her lab, George; and visiting her family back home.
