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. 

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!

Our Mission Statement is clear: to operate a successful Property Management Company in a way that provides the highest level of customer service to both our property owners and our renters so that everyone can enjoy an exceptional experience. That's who we are, we want you to have a great vacation.
