More About Ronda

From the moment I set foot on Holden Beach in 1985, I dreamed of making it my home. But, I had a lot of things to accomplish before then, such as raising a family, selling for several Fortune 100 corporations, traveling and investing in real estate.

I began with a second home/rental property on Holden Beach and spent the next 25+ years involved in both residential and commercial real estate, as well as leasing, financing, and complex negotiations. I was also selling and providing solutions to Fortune 500 clients in the high tech industry.

Finally, in 1998 I made Holden Beach my permanent home. For many years I practiced real estate as an independent broker, and I am proud to say that I joined the Coastal Development & Realty team in 2011. I made this decision because of the strength of this organization and the unique ability to provide a complete solution to our clients. This includes the sale and purchase of real estate, a strong rental program, spectacular coastal communities and the beauty of a Mark Saunders Luxury home, all under one umbrella.

I have dedicated my professional life to serving clients, listening to their needs and providing custom solutions. My love for Holden Beach is profound and unwavering. Whether you’re looking for investment opportunities, small business, rentals, second homes, or hoping to make Holden Beach your permanent home, I’d love to work with you.

More About Kim

Please join us in welcoming Kim Todd to our Sales team.

Welcome to Brunswick County, NC. I was born and raised here and call this beautiful place home. I guess you would say that makes me a “local”. I have seen many changes and much growth over the years. I am active in my community and am a member of Sharon United Methodist Church where I teach Sunday school to older elementary children, and have served in many areas including treasurer, finance secretary, and president of the women.

Early on, I worked as a real estate paralegal for 17 years with a local attorney closing transactions for both buyers and sellers. After that, I worked in the banking industry processing mortgage and commercial loans. I always knew that someday I wanted to put my experience in the field to work helping others and that time is now. I am excited to have joined the Coastal Development and Realty team. I have a strong work ethic and am resourceful. My goal is to grow my business on honesty and integrity. I pride myself on helping others to meet their needs. Whether you are buying or selling, I would love the opportunity to put my experience to work for you. Let’s talk soon.

More About Mindy

Our family decided to move to Holden Beach in 1993 after multiple vacations to check it out. Researching the area beaches, we found Holden Beach to be the perfect blend of seclusion and accessibility—with all the modern conveniences necessary to raising a family and conducting business just a short drive away. My husband and I found this to be an exceptional place to raise our family. We have been very happy with the public school system and the availability of activities for our children. Most importantly, our area’s low crime rate allows us to relax and enjoy the natural beauty around us, knowing we have chosen a safe haven in which to raise our kids. It was my good fortune to join Coastal Development & Realty in 1997. Coastal Development is a full-service company, offering sales and rental management, as well as award-winning design and construction of new homes. This makes our company the perfect choice for those who want to own coastal property, whether for investment or their own enjoyment or a combination of both.
