If you are looking for a Property Manager in the Pleasure Island area to manage your beach rental consider A1 Property Management.  Owner and operator of A1 Property Management, David Paul, has owned and managed rental properties since 1994 and is committed to providing the highest level of customer service at a competitive rate.
A1 Property management is a full service family owned and operated property management company for your vacation rental property. They offer personal service and because they keep their overhead low they can offer you the most competitive commission rates around. When David first started A1 he immediately noticed the benefits of attentive quality property management.  Starting with just a few properties adjacent to his own vacation property he quickly saw that repeat clients and referrals kept his properties continually booked.  “We take care of the details and keep you informed with constant communication every step of the way. We will work hard to continually earn your business.  David is available to meet with you one on one to discuss your needs and how you can best work together to effectively manage your investment property. In our initial meeting we will discuss seasonal rental rates, advertising, security deposits policies, rental terms (are pets allowed, are linens and towels provided, etc.) and commission rates. Together we will review a sample Property Management Agreement, Vacation Rental Agreement, and sample financial statements so you know exactly what to expect. We will perform a complete property evaluation and inventory so we have a baseline and can then make the informed decisions necessary to have your property ready to rent.”
A1 understands that people may have different ambitions with their rental property and they are happy to accommodate the owners.  “Understanding your goals is the first step.
Some owners want maximum occupancy of their property to generate the most cash flow for the year. Other owners may prefer to only rent if they can get a certain rental rate or may not be open to shorter rental periods. Some owners like to know about every issue no matter how small as they arise. Others prefer to only be informed of the large issues. No matter what level of occupancy and communication you prefer, David will get the job done. We are flexible and easy to work with. If you have a history of repeat renters or would like to block off time for your personal use that’s fine. Just let us know and we won’t advertise those weeks as being available for rent.” A1 Property Management chooses to remain limited on the amount of properties which they manage due to the philosophy that maintaining fewer properties allows them to pay more attention to detail which is preferable to loosely maintaining a vast multitude of properties.  It is this quality over quantity style of management that keeps the properties which they manage fully with booked with return guests and referrals.  A1 takes the time to keep their properties stocked with necessities and are always available when visitors need them. 
“For a family or a couple visiting our beaches it’s the small things that make their vacation special. We make the rental process easy for them to understand with no hidden fees or last minute charges. When they first walk in they will find the accommodations sparkling clean and that makes a great first impression. If they need anything during their stay or have any questions we provide prompt response to be sure they are satisfied. We offer a simple check in/check out process, and always follow up with them after they’ve left to be sure their stay was enjoyable and to ask if there is anything we could do to improve for the next time they visit. We have many renters who have returned to rent from us again and again. Taking care of the customer and giving them a great beach experience in an affordable, clean rental is one of our goals. If we do our job right then they will return and recommend both your property and A1 Property Management to their friends and coworkers. A repeat business of happy customers is a formula for success that we strongly believe in.”
It takes a team of professionals to do a great job. We work with the best local cleaners, painters, electricians, plumbers, handymen, and various other professionals to make sure your property is properly maintained at all times. When we say “go beyond your expectations” as your Property Manager we mean it. It’s inevitable that situations will come up and need to be handled from time to time. For example, if you need to have your carpet replaced we will obtain quotes, arrange for the contractors to be let in when renters are not staying there, and explain what needs to be done. We will advise you as to the best course of action, contract to have the work done, and follow up to be sure you are satisfied.  Striving to go beyond your expectations also applies to your renters. It’s how you handle the situations that make the difference. We strive to provide prompt service to the renters as well. If the wind blows their beach umbrella away, the coffee maker doesn’t work, they can’t log onto the internet, or they just need a recommendation of a great seafood restaurant we will be right there to help. 
Being a local family operated business A1 is always offering unsurpassed quality of service.  Paul’s daughter Chelsea works with her father maintaining properties and helps ensure that vacationers are met by friendly and knowledgeable property managers and properties that are in immaculate condition.  His daughter Kayla also lives on the Island and works at a local Chinese restaurant.  With the A1 family behind your property you can rest assured that your property is in caring and capable hands and will be a destination of repeat renters for the years to come.
