Haley grew up in the small town of Weirton, WV where she was a high school cheerleader and honors student. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from West Virginia University with a BS in Biology and a minor in Dance. Even though she has a science background, she is a people pleaser at heart! These skills led her to a successful career as a Director in the hospitality business working for the same large-scale casual dining restaurant for over 19 years. Her team provided training and operational expertise to over 700 restaurants nationwide with a goal of driving sales through a world class dining experience.
Over the 19-year span, she relocated several times throughout the Carolinas where she initially recognized her passion for real estate through the process of buying and selling her homes. Over six years ago, Haley’s career relocated her to South Tampa where she immediately fell in love with the area and decided to turn her dream of being real estate agent into a reality!
In addition to achieving her real estate sales associate license, she is currently pursuing a Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designation, to further her education and acquire in-depth knowledge on technical subjects and core fundamentals of real estate. Haley uses her extensive background in hospitality to provide her clients with the best experience possible for all their real estate needs.
Haley and her husband Bryan live in Palma Ceia with their two sons, Luke and Jake, and their dog Bernie. She enjoys watching her boys accomplish each new milestone, hosting friends over for dinner, taking Bernie to the dog park, an invigorating yoga class and a relaxing spa day!
"Haley McKay helped us sell our dream home. She understood and shared in our passion and enthusiasm for our home, a place we considered to be a part of our family. She worked endless hours to ensure that each step of the home selling process was done with perfection. She is knowledgeable, professional, authentic and trustworthy. She was always just a phone call, text or email away, responding at any time of day or night. It was a true honor to have Haley as our realtor and we look forward to our continued friendship. We are so thankful and highly recommend Haley to anyone looking to sell their home!" - Lora Terrell
