Take It From These Actual Owners . . We Are!

Highest Income

Accurate Pricing: We research your competition's rates through an advanced computer program as well as by hand to ensure accuracy. This places your property's rates in the sweet spot that gives you a higher season gross income. 

Repeat Stays: Our system gives your guest's a great introduction to your property.  This ensures they will be back again next season.  Repeat guests build a consistent income for the property or as we call it makes it a "money machine". 

No Nickeling & Diming: Expenses affect your net income. We don't charge unnecessary fees such as set up fees, photography fees, credit card fees or advertising fees to our owners. We also do not "pad" repair bills as some of our competitors do.

Best Marketing

VacationsonTopsail.com: Our website leverages top vacation rental industry design and techniques to book more weeks. Our website is also at the top of major search engines for the keywords your Topsail guests use. Our website works so well that it is one of our top booking sources. 

Advertising Partners: In addition to our powerful website, we advertise each and every rental on major world wide vacation rental websites like VRBO, Homeaway & Rentabeach. Our long term partnership and volume with these companies ensure that your property is listed high in their search results.

Technology Marketing:  It's the 21st Century and your property management company must embrace that in it's marketing. Through professional HDR wide angle photography, 3D models, electronic floorplans, computerized lead management and instant guest communications we have it covered.

21st Century Technology

Secured Home: Our electronic door locks are made for vacation rentals. It allows us to create codes specific to individuals with expiration dates, monitor traffic and electric outages. We also offer smart thermostats that prevent over use, costly repairs and high electric bills. Best of all, guests love being able to check in directly at the property with their own code that is text to them on arrival day.

Owner Portal: Each of our owners automatically get their own portal that allows them to see bookings, their financial statements, their work orders and even block off weeks for themselves. We do allow owners to reserve weeks unlike others. The data is secured behind an encrypted server to help prevent any breech of data.

Lead Management:  Our rental staff uses a CRM lead management system that logs each prospect, their actions and also allows us to schedule follow ups. This is customer relationship management 101 and allows us to increase your income by preventing missed opportunities for bookings.   

Seagull View Photos: Lewis Realty Associates, Inc. was the first company to start experimenting and gain a flight exemption from the FAA way back in 2012 to use "drones" for aerial photography.  Drones capture a unique perspective that answers many questions and helps you property really stand out. There is no charge for this service, it's included.

3D Online Models/Virtual Tours: Again Lewis Realty Associates, Inc. was the first company in coastal North Carolina to embrace virtual reality and 3d modeling. This technology allows someone a thousand miles away to virtually walk through your property. They no doubt will see all it's unique features and book it. This technology also allows us to furnish floor plans to help guests see why your property is better. 

Guest & Owner Communications:  We can communicate effectively and quickly when needed. Whether it be an alert to a guest's cell phone that their payment is due or a weather report concerning a threatening hurricane we are able to get the message out. This allows our owners and guests to be on the same page as their property at all times.   

Home Services

Inspections: We maintain a double digit of trained vacation rental inspectors. After each departure and cleaning we dispatch one to your property to check for unlikely damages, overall cleanliness and general maintenance. We assign the same inspector to your property each week to make sure they are familiar with your property.  

Housekeeping: As the American novelist, Louisa May Alcott said, "Housekeeping ain't no joke". We utilize the best housekeeping groups in the area to help ensure your guests have a great experience.  We also ensure you are not being over charged by setting the housekeeping rates by bedroom and bath number ourselves.

Maintenance:  We represent many homes and maintenance vendors like volume. We can leverage that volume with maintenance providers to ensure they are readily available and affordable when a maintenance issue arises. Most of our normal repairs are completed within 24 hours which please guests and home owners alike.
