Greg Isenhour

Property Manager

Greg Isenhour, Born in Concord, NC, is a second generation real estate broker and general contractor. His adolescent years were spent learning custom home building from a hands-on perspective. After receiving his undergraduate degree from Asbury College and a Master’s degree from Duke University, Greg settled in Chapel Hill, NC where he spent 25-plus years in the real estate, land development and construction industries. In 2004, Greg purchased an old beach shack in Surf City as a weekend getaway, tore it down and rebuilt new; little did he know that he had just opened up shop on Topsail. While not a part of the original plan; salt air, ocean breezes, and blue seas soon beckoned him to move to the coast full time. Greg and his wife (Beverly) began transitioning to the Holden Beach area in 2016 and moved here full time in 2018 to be closer to family. In total, including the time learning the construction trade since the age of 14, Greg brings 45+ years of experience with him to PROACTIVE. That experience encompasses managing his own companies in construction, real estate sales and property management, land development (commercial and residential), an industry teacher and consultant, and owning/managing other service related companies. He is a business entrepreneur on multiple levels that is, and has been, respected and honored by his peers for his business savvy, intuition, and innovation. From the outside, Greg observed PROACTIVE Vacation Rentals and the leadership that Jabin was providing in bringing innovation to the vacation rental market in Holden Beach. He was impressed and enjoyed his energy, finding that he shared common values that PROACTIVE holds in its operation. He is excited to be a part of the PROACTIVE team and to be a catalyst in moving the company forward as the number one property management company for the Holden Beach area. Greg lives here in the Holden Beach area on the ICWW where he and Beverly enjoy their spare time on the boat. On any day they may be just goofing off or offshore fishing along with their chocolate Labradoodle – Halle. Look out if you see Greg on the golf course! Off of the water he enjoys listening to live music at venues and his inner wanna-be rockstar enjoys karaoke. Greg and Beverly also have five adult kids and seven grandkids that keep them busy when they are either visiting here or when traveling to see them.
