Sharon Mathis / Sales Agent

Kingfish Bay Development LLC

My husband and I have lived in the Carolinas for over 35 years and love the warm climate and friendly smiles in this area. My background in Sales started over 25 years ago and I think meeting and working with wonderful new people and the excitement of this beautiful property are what keeps it fresh for me. When I am not at work I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family and Grand-dogs.

Haley Corbett / Sales Agent

Kingfish Bay Development LLC

Being a South Carolina native and small-town girl from Hartsville, South Carolina, I moved to Myrtle Beach in 2011 to attend Coastal Carolina University. My parents have had our beach house in Surfside Beach, SC since I was 11 years old. Growing up, my parents, brother Ryan and I spent most weekends and summers here. I always knew I wanted to attend college and settle down in this beautiful, exciting, and growing area.
My husband, Patrick, and I reside in Market Common with our golden-doodle/fur-baby Layla. We enjoy spending time with our families and friends, traveling, eating delicious food, sporting events, and being outdoors!
I majored in Communications and double minored in Public Relations and Business Administration, but have always had a passion for people and houses! I have always been a people person, and thoroughly enjoy helping families, while genuinely getting to know them and their views on life in general!
My career is more like a hobby to me and gives me the chance to showcase my work ethic and have the ability to be a part of making families and individuals dream home purchase a reality!
