You are here

Relax…and we’ll take care of everything!

You’ve made the great decision to purchase property on Holden Beach, one of America’s Top 10 Family Beaches! Imagine all of the wonderful memories you will make for generations to come. But what about those times when you are on the mainland and not enjoying your island home? To make the most of your investment, put Hobbs Realty’s 40+ years of Vacation Rental Management experience to work for you. You can relax…and we’ll take care of everything!

A Family Tradition of Excellence

In 1977, James O. Hobbs and his son, Jimmy, began building and selling homes one at a time on Holden Beach. Two years later, with the help of Betty Hobbs, James’ wife and Jimmy’s mother, they founded Hobbs Realty. It only made sense to use their extensive local knowledge and passion for Holden Beach living to expand their business into property asset management.

The Hobbs Realty team understands that choosing a professional investment asset management company can be an overwhelming decision. Others may try to convince you that all real estate companies are basically the same, and that lower commission rates equal more money in your pocket.

But that could not be farther from the truth.

Renting your beach home is not as simple as copying and pasting descriptions and photos in a brochure or on a website, then - poof! – guests magically appear. Producing actual bookings in your home is what sets Hobbs Realty apart.

Our custom-designed, easy-to-navigate website, boasting the Hobbs interactive 24/7 booking calendar, is the strong foundation for all we do.

While we make it look easy, the vacation rental business is a serious, strategic industry in which success demands an ever-developing, hands-on property management style, including:

• Targeted, aggressive year-round marketing intentional to Hobbs branding coupled with creative, interactive social media campaigns
• Property maintenance vendors with timely attention to detail and safety
• A knowledgeable, experienced reservation team
• Over-achieving, professional housekeepers
• Fabulous "Hobbspitality" service for our owners, guests and vendors
• Guest service resolution skills
• Continual vacation rental industry education
• A commitment to leading our market with innovative owner, guest and vendor-friendly technology
• An understanding of and empathy for our owners’ bottom line

Hobbs Realty is a passionately professional, 3rd -generation, local vacation rental firm comprised of a team of people who live, work, and play here. We love what we do - and we’re good at it!

As a result of our policy to always “go the extra smile”, Hobbs Realty has grown steadily over the years, building a company that spans three generations. Our business is still growing strong today, thanks to our firm commitment to time-honored family traditions blended with progressive ideas and innovative systems that distinguish us as industry leaders. We’re proud to have helped generations of families become happy homeowners and satisfied vacationers, and we look forward to doing the same for you!


So, you have the perfect Holden Beach getaway for your family. Now it’s time to let Hobbs Realty increase the return on your island investment through our professional Property Asset Management Program. From quality housekeeping to outstanding guest services to preventative maintenance, we are the trusted choice for your full-service Property Management Company.

Hobbs is the smart choice! Our innovative Hobbs Smart Homes provide the convenience of keyless entry locks and the security of a digital footprint showing all entries into your home. Our guests love bypassing check-in queues and stalled traffic lines by receiving a “Welcome to Our Neighborhood” entry notification as soon as their vacation home is ready.

With our 360° Photo Tours & Interactive Floor Plans, guests have access to the most current, detailed information about your home and all it offers, making the guest selection process a pleasure. This complete picture of the property and all the amazing views heightens guest satisfaction and helps create loyal returning vacationers.

Guests can stay connected with our mobile app, Hospitality by Glad to Have You. This free smart phone app allows our guests to manage their reservations online, make payments, find local fun events, and provides smooth check-in and check-out procedures.  It will even remind them to roll out the trash the night before scheduled pick-up and when to head to the local summer concert series for some serious fun!

Our online OwnerWeb™ access helps you monitor the performance of your vacation rental property remotely from wherever you are! View your rental calendar and bookings, see completed work orders, print a monthly statement, make account payments, reserve your home for friends or family use and more! Much like OwnerWeb™, we offer your guests GuestWeb™ access so that they can also enjoy the ease of our innovative systems when booking a Hobbs Realty managed home.

They can manage the entire booking process from the privacy of their computers or on the go with our mobile-friendly website or app.

At Hobbs Realty, we always Go the Extra Smile!  We’re equipped to respond to after-hours issues in a timely fashion, ensuring a positive experience for all of our guests. Choosing Holden Beach and Hobbs Realty are important steps toward a smart partnership and lifetime memories.
