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 began transitioning to the Holden Beach area in 2016 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 educator 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. 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 enjoys spare time on his boat, just out cruising or offshore fishing. Run if you see Greg on the golf course! When not on the water he enjoys live music venues, karaoke, travel, and playing on the tractor. Greg has a son that lives in Concord, NC with wife and grandson Ethan, and a daughter that lives in Marshall, VA with husband and granddaughters Ava and Scarlet. Not to leave out, Greg has a new four legged friend, Cooper; a goldendoodle that you may see around the office at times.
