First Flight Rentals is top notch. I am pleased with their customer service and their attention to little details. My guests are welcomed to my condo with clean sheets and towels and a welcome bag. They are responsive to my guests' needs and mine as well. As an out of state owner, it's comforting to know my guests and condo are in great hands.

Slide 2

I started my rental program with First Flight Rentals at the beginning of 2011.

- The organization is easy to work with
- They have exceeded my expectations with how they meet the needs of my guests
- They continue to assist with ideas to continuously improve my condo rentals

Finally, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of my first rental year, and its associated income has increased 13% year over year. I attribute some of the extra bookings to First Flight Rental's website and marketing methods.
Thanks, FFR!

Slide 2

Having owned multiple condos on the Outer Banks for more than a decade, I can honestly say that First Flight Rentals goes above and beyond for both their owners and renters. At one point in time and as the saying goes “maybe the grass is greener on the other side”, I tried changing to a larger management company only to discover that I had been with the best all along. Finally correcting that mistake brought me back to First Flight Rentals who proves in every way that bigger isn’t always better and smaller provides a much more personalized service that makes owners feel like family and treats renters so well that many are regular customers. As an owner, I have come to view First Flight Rentals as a business partner who is always looking out for my best interests. They provide excellent service and take the time to review projections for ways to highlight my properties and bring me excellent returns every year. Their attention to detail and their professional staff keeps renters coming back year after year. I am constantly reminded why they are the property management company I would recommend every time and will continue to work with for my properties!
