Barrett brings 25 years of real estate and sales experience to Currahee Club Realty, and has held real estate brokers licenses in Florida, California, South Carolina and North Carolina.
“Sean is a great new addition to our Executive team here at Currahee,” stated Andrew Ward, President and Managing Partner at Currahee. “He brings with him a wealth of experience, knowledge and professional know-how in the real estate world. I have no doubt that his previous skills and expertise will be put to good use every day here, as we now begin our real estate sales in earnest. His team approach and creative thinking will ensure we achieve our goals in the years ahead, and I look forward to watching him have a big impact on our success.”

He was in charge of sales, recruiting, training and cultivating clients.
“It’s been a long time since I have seen a community with such spectacular and completed amenities, in addition to the community being debt free,” Barrett said. “It is refreshing for the members and for future members to come.”
As he steps into his role of Director of Sales at Currahee Club, Barrett will go through an intensive training program on the club, which includes meeting with leadership and staff of amenity, hospitality and sales divisions of the club, before he then reaches out to the Property Owners, Members and Preferred Builders in the Community.
