Hunt Reifschneider, SRES & Leigh Sunshine - Residential & Commercial Specialists

Before moving to Topsail Island, Hunt & Leigh have always had a connection to North Carolina. Hunt was born in Texas but North Carolina was his home for many years before moving back in 2021. Although he has lived in many other states, North Carolina is where his family remained, so it’s always felt like his forever home. Leigh is a native Texan but has always considered North Carolina her second home after spending summers here visiting family.

Prior to obtaining their NC real estate license and REALTOR status, Hunt & Leigh followed their servant’s heart and entrepreneurial drive and started a healthcare company in Frisco, Texas (a Dallas suburb). For over a decade, they owned and operated several licensed assisted living residential care homes that focused on providing 24-hour personalized care for seniors with dementia. After fulfilling this calling, their passion for working with seniors and families led to them obtain the Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) certification through the National Association of REALTORS.

Hunt graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Accounting and Business Management and spent the next 25 years leading sales teams with global companies such as Kellogg’s, Diageo, AC Nielsen, and Infosys. Hunt’s territory at Kellogg’s included eastern North Carolina, where he fell in love with the east coast of North Carolina. In addition to his corporate success, he was a stellar leader in his respective communities with roles such as: President of the Community Development Corporation; Chairman of the Board of Parks & Recreation; President of the Soccer Association; Board Member of the Geriatric Wellness Center; Certified Dementia Practitioner; Miracle League Soccer Volunteer; and Soccer Coach.

Leigh obtained a BS in Kinesiology from University of North Texas and a MS in Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington. Leigh’s vast experience as a healthcare professional included roles such as: licensed clinical social worker (LCSW); medical device sales representative / trainer; hospital physician liaison / marketer; and homecare / hospice community liaison. Her community involvement activities included: Humane Society Volunteer; Board Member of the Geriatric Wellness Center; Miracle League Soccer Volunteer; Support Group Facilitator; and Soccer Coach.

Hunt & Leigh have over 50 years combined experience in successfully helping individuals attain their personal and professional goals, while exceeding their expectations. Their vast experience makes them the ideal team to assist in your residential OR commercial real estate needs. They will work closely with you to fully understand your personal dreams or professional goals, and then work tirelessly to exceed them.

Hunt & Leigh are passionate about immersing themselves into the community in which they live and work while making a positive contribution. When they are not assisting clients achieve their real estate goals, you will see them around Topsail Island boating and filming dolphins or playing pickleball. (Hunt is a certified pickleball instructor and Leigh’s goal is to beat him in pickleball VERY SOON!) Hunt is currently a Board Member at the Topsail Island Boat Club and Leigh is on their social committee so they love participating in their annual oyster roasts and celebrations. You will also see Hunt & Leigh at the Topsail Senior Center and delivering Meals on Wheels, or eating a lobster roll at the delicious Maine Lobstah Shack restaurant ( They enjoy walking on the beach and taking pictures of the incredible Topsail Island sunrises and sunsets. When their three sons visit, you’ll find them wakeboarding and tubing on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) or seeking any sort of active outdoor adventure.
