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 (PPM) ...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 carried on 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%.
Recently Jan and Ross decided that running the Preserve as its President and General Manager AND running PPM was too much. Fortunately IMC, the Preserve's administrators for years made an offer that Jan and Ross couldn't refuse and sold PPM to Coastal/IMC that over the years has demonstrated the same hands-on reputation
To this day the Preserve remains as the focus property of PPM (Jan, a Realtor, only deals with Preserve properties).
