Sean Corder

Broker in Charge

You will be hard pressed to find another Realtor in Myrtle Beach with such a wide range of experience and knowledge of the local market as Sean Corder has obtained during his 13+ year real estate career.

As you will see, he is uniquely qualified to help in any real estate matter you may encounter. Whether you are looking to build a new home through one of the many local or national builders, buy an existing resale, sale your current home for top dollar or rent a home… you will find value in Sean’s experience, guidance, and keen insight of the Myrtle Beach real estate market.

Sean was born in Huntington, WV but has been a resident of Myrtle Beach since 1978. He is a graduate of Socastee high School and Coastal Carolina University where he majored in business marketing. Upon graduation from CCU in 1999 Sean felt a calling to the world of real estate and became a licensed agent in the spring of 2000.

Fresh out of real estate school he associated with the oldest and most respected company in the area… HB Springs Commercial Real Estate. While there he was instrumental in establishing the company as a market leader in the multi-family and income producing real estate sector. During his tenure at HB Springs he worked diligently to hone his marketing, negotiation, communication, and investment analysis skills.

Sean always had a dream to be involved in home development and that opportunity came knocking in the spring of 2003. With an exploding Myrtle Beach real estate market he recognized the opportunity to build condos that were targeted at the full-time resident versus the vacation/second home resident that most condos had been built for previously.

He organized a partnership to begin condominium development in south Myrtle Beach and obtained his South Carolina Broker’s license to start a new real estate company which would handle the sale of the condos.

During the next three years Sean was directly responsible for the marketing and sales of Bayview Golf Villas and Maddington Place — two multi-million dollar developments totaling over 130 units. The booming market presented other opportunities in the form of new home construction where he oversaw site and floor plan selection as well as the marketing for the growing new home division.

After three very successful years, Sean recognized the need for independence and decided it was time to begin his own company, Corder Properties – Real Estate & Property Management. After selling his interest in his former company he retained the annual property management division and struck out on his own.

As a result, Corder Properties, Inc. was founded in December of 2006. We are a traditional full service real estate company offering general brokerage services through seller listing and marketing, buyer representation, relocation assistance, annual rental property management, and community HOA management.

Sean has worked diligently to maintain his impeccable reputation in the local market and his driving force is honesty in everything that he does. Many of our clients are relocating to the area and have no relationship with a Realtor for whom they can turn to for advice.

Clients are quickly comforted to find that after spending a short time with Sean in person or on the phone that he is an organized, competent, professional who knows the market and operates with a laid back no pressure style. He considers himself a consultant… not a sales person.

Having helped over 130 out of area clients relocate or buy a second home in the Myrtle Beach area… Sean has an outstanding track record of success that is second to none and he understands the challenges and obstacles that arise for every buyer… especially the relocation buyer. Therefore, he has become quite skilled in heading these problems off at the pass.

He is a south strand specialist and uniquely qualified to help you with the sale, purchase or rental of your home in Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach, Garden City, Murrells Inlet, Socastee, Carolina Forest, or the Pawleys Island areas.

Sean’s goal is to find you the perfect home that fits your family and lifestyle at the best possible price… then seeing your purchase through to a smooth successful closing.

When not busy helping a client buy or sell a home you will most likely find him taking in a round of golf on one of the local courses, bowling or his favorite hobby… investing in real estate. He is always in search of knowledge that will allow him to better serve his clients…so he is an avid reader of books and attendee of seminars where he learns to implement the newest practices in the real estate business.

He has been an active member of Socastee Baptist Church for over 25 years where he has served as a Sunday School teacher, Deacon, and currently on the Board of Trustees. He is also an active member of the Coastal Carolina Association of Realtors, Better Business Bureau, and the Surfside Beach Rotary.

Sean would be honored to be the trusted advisor you turn to for your home purchase. He is ready to put his knowledge to work for you… so when the time is right to start looking for your Myrtle Beach home just grab the phone and give him a call.

He’ll be ready to help!

Mark Madonna

Sales Associate

After owning and operating a successful rental property business in a suburb of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for years, Mark and his wife Marjorie decided it was time to sell off the properties and move to a warmer beach climate. Myrtle Beach was our favorite vacation spot so it seemed natural that is where we wanted to move and live out the rest of our lives. Being a full time Real Estate Agent here in Myrtle Beach, I use my experience from my past business to help others locate and purchase a second home, permanent residence or investment property here on the Grand Strand. I am a member of the Coastal Carolina Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.

I am a firm believer in the “Golden Rule” from the Code of Ethics and Standards of practice of the National Association of Realtors, “WHATSOEVER YE WOULD THAT OTHERS SHOULD DO TO YOU, DO YE EVEN SO TO THEM” (treat others as you want treated).
