LORRI LEWIS AND WENDY CORBITT, THE LEADING LADIES OF SEA PINES REAL ESTATE AT THE BEACH CLUB

Q. What first brought you to the island?

A. (Lorri Lewis) My roommate at Michigan State, her parents lived in Sea Pines and we came down for a college vacation. We rolled into Sea Pines and I was blown away. It left such an impression on me. After I graduated, I always kept a picture of me at the Sea Pines Beach Club in my office and I’d tell people, “If I could find a way to go to this beach as my job every day, that would be great.” Now I find myself running this company, working with agents I used to see in magazines as a kid. It was exciting to be invited into this group of legends in real estate.

What could have been a scary time became an amazing opportunity. I feel like I take that energy, enthusiasm and work ethic to my clients. And I hope I've taught that to my four children.

When Donna Taylor’s son, Evan, cut himself with a knife and needed seven stitches, she knew she had to help the Culinary Institute of America student get back into the kitchen.

“I hurt for him, watching him bandage and glove (his wound) and have to go to work and rub that knife blade again,” she said of her son. “I was trying to find something to protect his hand so that he could keep working.”
