Kathy Phillips, Director of Sales Harbor Club Real Estate

My business: Our award-winning Georgia golf and lake community is nestled in 1,000 acres of beautiful, wooded hills and bordered by 9 miles of picturesque Lake Oconee shoreline. Our well-established, gated neighborhood offers premium amenities, awesome activities and some of the finest golf you can play in the Southeast. My mission: Here, you and your family have the unique ability to enjoy the best in resort-style living, not just for a week, but all year round. We not only live here, we play here.

My strengths: Between our recreational amenities and a jam-packed calendar of events, Harbor Club provides multiple opportunities for friends and neighbors to enjoy gathering, interacting and celebrating together. We pride ourselves on having a charming, resortlike neighborhood with over 80% full-time, friendly residents.

What are your proudest moments: I have to say that my proudest achievement is helping Harbor Club to grow exponentially in the past 5 years. I have led the charge of new home construction with offerings of so many new home products with price points for just about everyone. Additionally, earning the trust and respect of residents in Harbor Club with my resale property sales success has been quite fulfilling. I live in Harbor Club and feel very much like a member of this community. Of course, there are really no strangers in Harbor Club as everyone is so welcoming and friendly. Harbor Club has been my best career move ever and I am grateful to have received the opportunity to be here. I look forward to even more growth as Harbor Club continues to be a shining star at Lake Oconee.

Mika Mills, Membership Director Harbor Club Real Estate

Lessons you learned from the pandemic: COVID-19 restrictions have made me learn to think ‘outside the box.’ Instead of saying we can’t do something; I look for ways we can. We just have to do things differently!

How have you risen to the challenges of COVID-19: As Harbor Club’s Membership Director, introducing new residents to our community and club membership has been more difficult with social distancing guidelines. It is difficult to meet new neighbors when there are no events to attend. The more friends people make, the happier they are living here. I have begun encouraging new club members to attend our outdoor activities such as golf, pickle ball, tennis, fitness classes, walking in the neighborhood and even hanging out at the Sandbar as ways for people to meet others. We recently scheduled a Cornhole Tournament as a way to safely get people together—but at a distance. We will keep looking for other ways to give members a ‘social life.’
