Welcome to the Beach!

Pam Duccommon - Maintenance Coordinator

I moved from New York in 2011 to be closer to my parents.  I started working for Sunset Properties in September of 2012 in the Housekeeping Department.  I moved to the Maintenance Department in 2023.  My favorite thing about living at the beach is the ability to go whenever I want as it’s just a few minutes away.  We love to launch the jet ski and just ride for hours up and down the waterway.  I work closely with the homeowners and vendors to make sure our guests have an enjoyable vacation.

My wife and I are natives of southern Brunswick County and have 3 married children with 6 grandchildren. I love the perfect mix of rural living and beach life. I can easily enjoy a day in the country or on the water in my boat and enjoy our impressive local views. I have worked full time in real estate since 2005 and joined Sunset Properties in 2013. I enjoy working with our homeowners and as GM, help to facilitate operating in all departments.

My husband and I moved to Sunset Beach in 2016, with hurricane Matthew greeting us a few days later. Although we left our grown children and grandchildren behind in Ohio, they are still close enough to visit us at the beach.  I started at Sunset Properties in 2020, right before the pandemic took hold.  As a reservationist, I assist our guests with their beach vacation so they can relax and know that we have them covered. The beach is my happy place, so I appreciate the delight of our guests’ experiences while they visit us at the beach.

I grew up coming to Sunset Beach to visit family and have always felt at home here. I met my now husband here as kids playing on the beach. After living in Virginia for a few years, we decided to move back with our two young children in 2020 to be closer to family. I started working at Sunset Properties in 2021 in accounting and have enjoyed my time working the staff, homeowners, and guests.

I moved to Sunset Beach in 2019 from Chapel Hill.  I am a proud NC native.  I started working for Sunset Properties in 2020 hoping to work part time and do some traveling.  However, once I arrived at the beach, I realized I couldn’t leave the beautiful beach behind.  I work in Maintenance full time to help assist guests during their stay as well as prepare properties in advance for owner and guest arrivals.

Elaine Nelson - Annual Rentals Manager & Reservations

I've lived in the area since December 2014. The lifestyle, the smell of the ocean, the sound of the waves, the peace are my favorite things about living at the beach. I started with Sunset Properties in December 2015-Best Day Ever! As a Reservationist, I work hard to ensure our guests have happy memories when they leave and look forward to welcoming them back year after year. As the Leasing Manager for our long-term rentals, I enjoy helping tenants find a place to call home.

Peggy McGuinness - Vacation Rental Manager

I have lived in Sunset Beach for 20 years. I moved from NJ and other than family, I have never looked back. The best part of living at the beach for me is proximity to the ocean. I grew up vacationing at the Jersey Shore and long summer days at the beach invoke joyful memories of childhood summers and family vacations. I work with owners and guests to ensure the best vacation and property condition possible.

Amanda Pearce

Amanda Pearce - Maintenance

I was born and raised in SC. Growing up, coming to Sunset Beach, is a trip we took at least once a week, just to get out of the house, or to take Sunday drive.  I have two boys and one grandson.  I have been with this wonderful company since 2022.  I enjoy the people that I work with and share their values.  I take pride in making sure each property is well taken care of.  If there are any maintenance issues during your stay, I will do everything possible to get them fixed in a timely manner.

Sev Severtson - Maintenance

I've lived in the area for about 4 years, but have been visiting for the past 21 years. I like the pace of life and really like the weather in the fall and spring. I was blessed enough to have joined what I feel is my second family to me in January 2018. As the Maintenance Director, my main role is to handle the logistics of anything maintenance-related. From something as minor as a bulb replacement to major issues such as HVAC repairs, I work closely with our maintenance coordinator and techs in preparing houses for rental and assisting guests during their stay. It is important to ensure that service requests are handled in a timely manner so communicating with guests and owners is a critical aspect of my job.

I moved to Sunset Beach in 2020 to be able to spend more time with my mom. I have loved living at the beach and enjoying all this area has to offer. I started working for Sunset Properties in 2022 as a reservationist and then transitioned into our housekeeping department. I truly enjoy working with all of our owners, guests, and cleaning staff to provide a wonderful vacation experience for our visitors.
