Owner letters of recommendation

Read what our owners have written about us through the years

Read what some of our property owners have to say about A1 managing their beach investment.

Owner of Octupus's Garden and Silvery Moon:  I first met the A1 team as an owner next to a unit that they managed. David Paul immediately introduced himself and said to call him if anything was wrong with guests. Luckily, they screen so well that we had minimal problems - but usually it was around parking. Any time I called David, he was immediately responsive. So when we bought rental properties, there was no doubt that we would use A1 to manage them - if they could be that great to work with when we were not even an owner of one of their properties, then they must be fantastic as a management company. And we were so right! The entire A1 team is outstanding, helpful and a real pleasure to deal with. They made suggestions on how to improve our rentals so guests will love it and also get more weeks rented. Our results so far have been outstanding - all 5 star reviews, repeat customers, and our 2022 rental goals were already met by April! You could not ask for a better team than A1!

 Owner of Carolina Skies: David and his team have been 1st class all the way! They have treated my home, Carolina Skies, as if it was their own! I can't say enough about the job they do as far as rentals go as well as keeping me up to date on any and everything that needs to be done to keep my place like brand new. I wish I could use A1 properties Management at all of my places but unfortunately they are focused only at Carolina and Kure Beach! They are the best of the best for sure!!

 Owner of Ocean Breeze: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value! My wife and I bought our first beachfront property in Carolina Beach. I asked our realtor to give me a few companies in the area that they recommend managing our home. After speaking with Dave and meeting his wife Sue and their beautiful family of employees it was not hard at all to make our decision.Without any hesitation I would HIGHLY recommend A1 Property Management to anyone who is seeking a professional most attentive and responsible company whose only concern is to make their customer and our guest EXTREMELY happy each stay. The home is brand new, they assisted in furnishing the entire home. Sue’s decorative, & designing skills are first-class! The house looks beautiful! Magazine ready!!!, She spent countless hours working with us showing different options, buying products, having it shipped to their business and then staged the property.With that said, we booked our home in rentals clear through the summer, and we could not be happier. Thank you, A1 Property Management team, you feel like family to us!

 Owners at Ocean Dunes: Switching to family-run A1 Property Management has done three major things. #1: A1 has dramatically reduced my vacancies and thereby increased my rental income, #2: A1 treats my property like it was their own family heirloom, constantly making improvements, but doing so in an economical way, #3: given me peace of mind – I know that A1 is working in my best interest, both financially and keeping my property up to date for the best guest experience – which, consequently gives us many repeat visitors. No one should hesitate to use A1 for their property management.

 Owners of Beauregard's Rest: The A1 property management team has consistently gone above and beyond our expectations. One of our guests noticed a leak in the roof – on Christmas Eve! – and they quickly worked with our HOA to assess the damage and get it taken care of so that our guests could enjoy their vacation. We have a great property in a great location – the missing piece was finding a great management company that we could trust to take care of our investment like it was their own. We have found that with David, Sue and the entire family at A1! We recommend them without hesitation.

 Owners at Ocean Dunes: My husband and I have worked  with Dave and Sue since March of 2018.  We have been very pleased with the A1 Property Management Team.  From the very beginning, David and Sue have gone above and beyond and given us a very personalized working relationship with them.  We do not feel like just another condo in their rental book of business.  They helped get our condo into great rental shape by helping us secure decorations, kitchen items, and additional furniture.  The end result was fantastic, and they found great deals in the process.   We rely on A1 Property Management to be sure our condo stays in good condition as we are not able to visit it as much as we would like.  They helped secure our property during both recent hurricanes which was a huge relief for us.  A1 Property Management has always responded quickly to any concerns we have had as owners.  We have been very pleased with our partnership and look forward to many more successful years. 

Owners of Breath of Heaven: Thanks so much for the way that you, Sue and the whole A1 property team watch over, care for, and manage our property. Bob and I are confident that our home is always in good hands! We appreciate how proactive you are in making sure that our home is attractive to potential renters and also how quickly you respond if there is ever an issue or concern from our renters. The time you spend on local market research ensures that we get both high occupancy rates and good rental income. Your hands on, personal and professional approach gives us the assurance that we made the right decision when contracting with A1 to be our property management company. Thanks for making sure we get the most out of our investment!

Owners at Ocean Dunes: Some friends of ours told us about A1 Properties, and once we met David and Sue we were even more impressed. We like the fact that they are a small company with “big company” results.  They have top level reservation management software, automatic correspondence, a hospitality app, e-signature for rental; agreements, and marketing with VRBO/Homeaway, Airbnb and Vacationrentals.com. However, the part we like the most is they are very nice people, responsive to our questions or problems, and keep us nearly 100% booked up. 

Owners at Ocean Dunes: David Paul and his staff at A1 Property Management are the best! Since switching to A1, our revenue and customer satisfaction have greatly increased. Renters give them the highest praise, and he provides owners with great ideas to improve their properties. We highly recommend them. 

Owners of Little House on the Beach: How often do you need to be concerned that your family vacation home, turned into investment property is well cared for?  You don’t with David, Sue and their family owned A1 Property Management Company.  There is open communication with them, if you are concerned, text or call.  They are always willing to help you.  They treat your property and the homeowners with love and respect, make suggestions for craftsmen, if they are not able to handle the task...even shop for furniture if a piece needs replacing.  This takes a burden off the homeowners that live hundreds of miles from beautiful Kure Beach, NC.  We have used other companies that made us feel like they were doing us a favor, not with A1...they become family.  “The Little House on the Beach” is well-loved and cared for, and our rental calendar stays full, year round.  Thank you A1 so very much for taking care of Little House for us. 

Owner of Turtles Nest: A1 has done a fantastic job managing my property. There is always someone available within minutes to resolve any issue.They are friendly and willing to help on any issue. I highly recommend them.

Owner of Awake n' Ready: I am the owner of Awake n’ Ready and A1 has been managing my property for the last 8 years. They have been consistently professional and a pleasure to work with. It’s a true family business-When you call them you will get either David, Sue or their children who are their employees. I never feel like just a number to them not do I have to reintroduce myself every year or so like bigger property management companies. I have another property in VA that is managed by a large company and the turn over is quick. I don’t feel the same sense of loyalty with them. I can’t express enough how much value there is in having a “Mom & Pop” business to work with. Their professional is on par with the big guys, but they offer everything you would want from small & local. Long live A1 Property Management!

Owner of Turtles Nest: A1 has done a fantastic job managing my property. There is always someone available within minutes to resolve any issue.They are friendly and willing to help on any issue. I highly recommend them.

 Owner of Beachfront Bliss: A1 Property Management is bar none the best there is!  I have been working with them since the beginning of 2016, and they are amazing.  Dave and Sue helped me decorate, hang up curtain rods, pick out back splash, they introduced me to the contractor who renovated the place and so much more.  They go above and beyond not only for the renters but also for the owners.  I have been so very pleased with my overall occupancy in the rental market, their attention to detail, their professionalism, willingness to help and also to listen to the owners regarding thoughts and inputs on the property. I would highly encourage anyone that is considering renting out their space on Pleasure Island to use A1 Property Management!  Their team is ready and willing to work hard to get you the best rental rates, keep your place filled, and help you with all of your needs throughout your working relationship!
