Meet Our 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 - Operations Manager
As Operations Manager I am responsible for the accounting, bookkeeping, and helping renters book their reservations. I have been working for A1 since 2012 and I am also a licensed North Carolina Broker. In my spare time I practice pilates, read crime novels, enjoy the beach and spend time with my boyfriend Kyle and our puppy Bagheera.
Kayla Powers - 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 husband AJ and our dog Trooper.
AJ Powers - 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 wife Kayla and our two year old dog Trooper.
Bagheera - Morale Officer
Bagheera is a Miniature Schnauzer and was born on May 27th 2018. His parents are Chelsea and her boyfriend Kyle who adopted him in December of 2018. He is responsible for boosting team spirit and keeping everyone on their toes! Bagheera loves to play fetch, catching frisbees and snuggling in bed with mom and dad. They can't wait to take him to the beach for the first time this summer!
