Myrtle Beach HOA Management

Why choose Axelrod Realty Property Management?

What differentiates us from the rest?

As a homeowner, Board Member and President of the Board of Directors in my own community, I understand the challenges of Association Management firsthand. The community association where I live is in our ninth year of existence, six years post developer control, and we are on the fourth Professional Management Company during that time. I am sure that I share many of your same concerns and frustrations. It led me to wonder what do we want and need from an Association Management Company for our communities.

With the realization that the wants and needs of every homeowner and community are different, the common needs are the same. A few of these are accountability, accessibility, timely and responsive communication, preservation of our asset and security concerns of out of town owners. Most importantly, affordability, we want a true partner that understands that every dollar spent comes from me and my neighbors and will do the utmost to monitor and control expenses.

As I was unable to find what I was looking for in an Association Management Company, we decided to create one that would set a new standard in property management and strive to exceed the expectations of our homeowner partners.

Axelrod Realty Property Management was created by homeowners for homeowners. Our Mission, the Axelrod Advantage, is to partner with and leverage the power of best of breed technologies.

We will leverage and integrate the power of a community website for timely and responsive communication to all members and the general public. Our systems are designed to integrate a mobile inspection platform to protect and preserve your asset and enforcement of rules. We are the first in market with a suite of products to address the security concerns of out of town owners. The Suite of products include keyless access control, energy management of thermostats, water heaters & pool heaters and site monitoring motion detectors.
