Sean Corder

Broker in Charge

Sean Corder 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 marketing. Upon graduation Sean obtained his real estate license and began pursuing his life long dream; real estate investing.

Sean went to work for HB Springs Commercial Real Estate in 2000 and was instrumental in establishing the company as a market leader in the multi-family and income producing real estate sector. While at HB Springs he worked diligently to hone his marketing, negotiation, communication, and investment analysis skills.

Opportunity came knocking in the spring of 2003 in the manner of an exploding Myrtle Beach real estate market. Having an entrepreneurial spirit Sean organized a partnership to begin condominium development in south Myrtle Beach. He obtained his South Carolina Brokerís license, and thus Smitt Group Real Estate was born. Over the next three years Sean was directly responsible for the marketing and sales of two multi-million dollar developments as well as site selection and marketing for the spec home division, and staffing for the growing real estate business. After three very successful years at the helm of Smitt Group, Sean recognized the need for independence and decided it was necessary to begin his own company. He sold his interest in Smitt Group and retained the property management division.

As a result, Corder Properties ďA Real Estate Investment FirmĒ was founded in late December 2006. Corder Properties is a full service real estate company offering marketing, buyer representation, annual rentals, and HOA management. Sean works daily as the owner and broker in charge while also pursuing his passion of real estate investing.

Sean married his lovely wife Lora in November of 2006. His hobbies include golf, bowling, and real estate investing. He is an active member of Socastee Baptist Church where he teaches the 20-30 year old Sunday School class. He is also a member of the following organizations:

  • NAR (National Association of Realtors)
  • SCAR (South Carolina Association of Realtors)
  • CCAR (Coastal Carolina Association of Realtors)
  • SCREIA (South Carolina Real Estate Investment Association)
