#Hobbspitality CEO


Rachele was born in Nashville, Tennessee, but lived all over the world as the daughter of an Army chaplain. She’s very grateful for her godly parents, wonderful siblings, and fabulous childhood. Eventually the Eaddy family called Holden Beach home, settling here in her early tweens. And it’s where she would meet her future husband, Jimmy Hobbs, a few years later. She’s mom to four grown children and their spouses, and “Mars” to seven grandchildren (hopefully, many more to come). Rachele’s path has included the joy of being a stay-at-home mom, volunteering as a fun PTA class mom, serving as worship leader at her church, and working as a kindergarten and 1st-grade teacher. When their children were young, she initially helped out at Hobbs Realty part-time with summer reservations. Rachele began her full-time Hobbs Realty career in marketing, branding Hobbs Realty's colorful umbrella logo and launching the first website in 1999. Next she instituted a financial department and initiated the transition from the beloved "poster paper" booking chart on the front office wall to the current fully-automated vacation rental mangement system and custom software tool programs - and everything in-between! Rachele now serves mostly behind the scenes as the CEO of Hobbs Realty, and the rest is still history in the making! 

Best Part of Hobbs Realty: Being with my family every day.....the people I work with.....and the challenge of getting it all done!

After Hours: I make music, cook, read, and spend time with my extended framily. 

Pursuits: I want to learn to play the harp and learn to cook in Italy!

Alternate dream job: I'm loving life with the man of my dreams ( husband of over 38 years) and playing with my amazing grandchildren. But, if I had to change careersI  wouldn’t mind writing Hallmark cards, naming OPI nail polish, or being a Chopped judge getting to taste all the crazy food inspirations!

Something others may not know: I don't like chocolate and I’m a roller coaster fanatic…the loopier, the better! And, for my 16th birthday, I flew my dad's Cessna over the Bermuda Triangle with him right beside me.
