MEET THE STAFF OF SUNSET PROPERTIES
Welcome to the Beach!
Eddie Walters Managing Partner and Sales Broker
Prior to becoming the managing partner at Sunset Properties, I owned a local brokerage and property management firm for 30 years. Since January 2014, I've enjoyed the new challenges of vacation rental management and the opportunity of meeting so many of our homeowners and long time guests.
Al Ward - General and Vacation Rental 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.
Mary Hanke - Reservations Manager
I have lived in Sunset Beach for four years, and do not miss the snow. Sandmen/women are so much better than snowmen/women. My favorite thing about living at the beach is the more relaxed way of life, and, hello, the beach! I'm able to go whenever I want when I am not at work that is. But oh, I work at the beach too. I started at Sunset Properties in 2020, right before the pandemic took hold. As a reservationist, I help our excited guests plan their beach vacation. I enjoy answering their questions so they can relax and know that we have them covered
Renee Meier - Maintenance Director
I have lived here at the beach for 7 years after vacationing here for 17 years. My favorite things about living at the beach are the warmer climate versus back up north in Indiana. I mostly enjoy being able to walk the beach every morning with my golden retriever, which she looks forward to every day. I enjoy the much more laid-back, slow pace of living here at the beach. Started with Sunset Properties in 2019 in reservations, then in 2020 moved over to the maintenance department.
Kelly Pettit - Housekeeping
I was born and raised in Brunswick County and this will always be my home. My favorite thing about living at the beach is the moments I have with my family walking and talking on the strand. There's no better therapy session than that. I started my Sunset Properties journey in January of 2020. As a reservationist, it is my pleasure to reserve homes for our guests as well as researching vacation options. I also enjoy answering questions from our guests over the phone and through email. My favorite part about working here is being able to welcome our guests to the island on check-in day. It's always good to put a face with the name of the person who has allowed me to be part of the excitement of their upcoming vacation.
Tom Seletyn- Maintenance
I relocated here from West Virginia. I started with Sunset Properties in April 2018. I work with the Maintenance department, helping to prepare properties for rental and assisting guests during their stay.
Randy Walters - Vacation Rental Manager
I've lived here at the beach for over 40 years. My favorite thing about being here at the beach is being close to my family. I started with Sunset Properties in 2015 as the Maintenance Supervisor. Currently, I am the Vacation Rental Manager in our Ocean Isle Beach office.
