A Bit Of History

For the past 20 years we’ve assembled the most efficient property management team in Emerald Isle. And “the most efficient,” to you, means the most savings.

We believe expert property services should cover it all, and have a true 24/7 dispatch service. EIHS can help you with everything from beach gear rentals, selecting and overseeing the right pool and spa services, hiring professional maintenance contractors to contracting with a trusted cleaning company,  . . . we make your best interests, our best interests. And we’re here around the clock.

We’ve learned that at the end of the day, managing your beach home is about relationships. And relationships are all about trust. We get it. We hope our upfront annual pricing structures, no hidden fees, professional team, close working relationships — and let’s not forget our swelling list of happy clients — will give you plenty of reason to leave your beach-home keys with us at Emerald Isle Homeowner Services.

Meet Carole

Growing up along the East Coast made for an easy choice of what I wanted “to do” when I grew up. I had salt in my blood and have always loved to help others, so studying Hospitality Management and Marketing was my first stop on this beachy path of life. Emerald Isle became home more than 23 years ago, as my luck would have it.

I found my true passion in property management, and have worked with some of the best in the business. Eager to move forward in this realm, I obtained my NC Real Estate License in 1995, followed by my NC Brokers License in 1998.

While working in property management, I found a niche that had not yet been filled along the Crystal Coast and, with partners, launched the very first vacation rental equipment company in 1999. I still own and manage one of the leading rental equipment companies in Emerald Isle, Emerald Isle Beach Gear.

In my free time, my 10-year-old daughter and I enjoy biking, boating and days by the pool with our golden doodle, Daisey. I’ve sacrificed my summers over the years as I’ve focused on business. It’s definitely true, however, that “summer” is not a season but a way of life when you are lucky enough to live and work at the beach!

My expertise, knowledge and values have been great assets to my success. I began conceiving my latest venture, “Emerald Isle Homeowner Services,” several years ago and am thankful to the many friends who encouraged me to turn the idea into reality. I hope you will find that my services exceed your expectations, along with the convenience of the one-price package to simplify every aspect of your beach property ownership!

Allow me to assist you with your goals for your second home, vacation rental home or annual rental home.

Cheers, Carole

“EIHS makes me look good.”

I have been associated with Carol and her team for over three years now. It has been a pleasure working with her. She is a very hard worker and surrounds herself with hard-working and dedicated employees. They do a great job and always go the distance to get the job done.

I do not think I have had one complaint in the time I have been doing business with EIHS. They certainly make me look good. I am very happy with their service and look forward to many more years together.
