The Preserve was originally built as a rental community. When the Preserve went 'condo' in 2004 Rosemary Ward, the developer's property manager recognized the need for a rental company to accommodate the new owners who wanted to rent their villa. Along with her husband Ron, Roe founded Preferred Property Management...to this day the company still concentrates on the Preserve as its 'flagship' community.
Since these humble beginnings, Preferred Property has grown into one of Hilton Head Island's (the Company only deals with Island property) largest long-term rental management companies...indeed, it's the largest long-term villa rental manager.
In 2010, Rosemary retired and sold out to her partner, Jan Pascall who, along with her husband Ross continue the 'hands on' policies Preferred Property became known for. This personal concern for both owners and tenants is the reason Preferred Property enjoys an occupancy rate around 97% and a renewal rate of 86%.
The Preserve is still the focus property however, Preferred Property has expanded over the years to over 150 properties in 14 different communities offering both rental management island-wide and within the Preserve, real estate representation (Jan, a Realtor, only deals with Preserve properties).
