Abstract: In Khavinson and Swiatek (2002) it was proved that harmonic polynomials $ z-\overline{p(z)}$, where $ p$ is a holomorphic polynomial of degree $ n > 1$, have at most $ 3n-2$ complex zeros. We show that this bound is sharp for all $ n$ by proving a conjecture of Sarason and Crofoot about the existence of certain extremal polynomials $ p$. We also count the number of equivalence classes of these polynomials.
