MEET THE STAFF OF SUNSET PROPERTIES
Welcome to the Beach!
Al Ward - General Manager
Both I and my wife are natives of southern Brunswick county and have 3 married children with 4 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. The views are awesome. I have worked full time in real estate since 2005 and joined Sunset Properties in 2013. I work with homeowners and as GM help to facilitate operating in all departments.
Hannah Frink - Accounting
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.
Jamey Mann - Maintenance
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.
Amanda Pearce- Maintenance
I was born and raised in SC. Coming to Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle, is a trip we took at least once a week, just to get out of the house, or to take Sunday drive. I am the maintenance coordinator and I enjoy helping people and fixing any issues that arise!
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.
Tracy Thibaudeau - Housekeeping
I am going on my 3rd year living here at Sunset Beach and it is so amazing to have everyday literally feel like a beach day. Growing up just outside of Boston with all those snow and ice storms I was more than happy and ready to trade in my shovels and snow tires for flip flops and sunblock! It has also been nice to be able to hit the brakes and enjoy the more relaxed pace and way of life this area offers. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this Sunset team that works hard to ensure all of our Guests expectations are achieved.
Lori Walden - Reservations
I moved to the beach in 2019 with my fiancé. Having grown up on Cape Cod, I knew I wanted to live near the ocean. We love bringing our dogs to the beach for walks and watching the beautiful sunsets. I feel lucky to have recently started with Sunset Properties as a reservationist. Such a great team to work with, and we all strive to make it the best possible experience for our guests!
