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.
Ashley Chambley - Reservations Manager
I have lived in Brunswick County for most of my life. I enjoy the slower pace of beach living but love having easy access to the larger neighboring cities for shopping and entertainment. I started with Sunset Properties in 2009 and held a few different positions. I am currently Reservations Manager and handle accounts payable. I enjoy speaking with our guests and assisting with their beach vacation plans.
Kevin Hanke - Maintenance
I moved to Sunset Beach from Ohio in the fall of 2016. My favorite thing about living at the beach is it's like being on vacation all of the time. I started with Sunset Properties in 2019 and work in the field assisting with guest maintenance issues.
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 memories of 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.
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.
Sev Severson - Maintenance Director
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.
Heather Sisneros - Reservations
My family moved to the area in 2020. We've been here about 6 months! My favorite things about living at the beach are the sun, sand, and surf! No snow!! I started with Sunset Properties in 2021 in the Reservations department. I'm enjoying helping families plan their vacations!
