Meet your A1 Property Management Team
Left to Right - David, Chelsea, Sue, Kayla, and AJ
David Paul - Owner
I started the company in 2011 and love helping guests have great beach vacations. I'm proud of our little island and that it's a great place for families to come and enjoy the beach. We have so much to offer including warm ocean temperatures and white sandy beaches. I love to travel and have been to Italy, Ireland, Spain, and quite a few Caribbean islands.
Sue Paul - Co-Owner
I enjoy helping our owners decorate and remodel their properties. I'm also in charge of standards for our properties - making sure they are 100% ready when a guest arrives. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, walking on the beach and I'm an avid seaglass collector. Before joining the A1 team full time I worked as a Registered Nurse at WakeMed for almost 20 years taking care of new Moms and their babies.
Chelsea Paul - Office Manager
As Office Manager I am responsible for the accounting, bookkeeping, and helping renters book their reservations. I'm learning a lot and will be taking classes in the off season to get my Real Estate license. I lived in Chicago for three years - absolutely love the city but didn't like the cold weather at all! In my spare time I love to read, do arts and crafts, and of course hang out on the beach.
Kayla Paul - Cleaning Manager
I 've worked in our family business since right out of High School cleaning and taking care of our properties. It's been a great part time job while attending UNCW and earning my Bachelors Degree in Spanish. I love to travel and explore other cultures. I keep myself grounded, as well as physically active, by practicing yoga. I enjoy a good veggie burger and spending quality time with my fiance AJ and our dog Trooper.
AJ Powers - Assistant Property Manager
I work closely with David and Sue to help maintain all our properties and perform maintenance and repairs as needed. There seems to always be something to do! I've been an avid Hockey player since the age of four and I've coached youth hockey. I enjoy a good steak as well as spending quality time with my fiance Kayla and our two year old dog Trooper.
