Debbie Hardee

Owner Services | Business Development

Originally from Landis, N.C., I fulfilled a lifelong dream when I moved to the coast in 1986. Growing up, I spent lots of time every summer on the Grand Strand with my family. Over the years, I've watched the beach evolve into a place that honestly has something for folks of all ages. A graduate of King's Business College and Horry-Georgetown Tech, I began my career in accounting and the newspaper business. My love of people and a natural penchant for providing good customer service made my move into the vacation rental field an easy decision. In 1997, I joined Thomas Beach Vacations as a licensed property manager. I enjoy working with owners who have invested in vacation rental homes and condos to maximize their property's earning potential. I particularly enjoy consulting and assisting them with keeping their property's features at a level that provide their guests an excellent and memorable vacation experience. When I'm "off-duty," my husband and I enjoy freshwater fishing and are members of the Swampfox Bass Fishing Club. I also am an active member of the Trinity Methodist Church, the Sun Fun Gals Bowling League, and the Ocean Drive Shag Club - a community association to promote and preserve our state dance--the Shag. I work out of our Ocean Drive office at 404-A Main Street and can be reached at extension 3024. Please call, email or stop by. I'll be happy to discuss our wonderful vacation rental management program with you.

Jacqueline Ramsey

Owner Services Representative

Although I was born in White Plains, N.Y., I've always considered Little River my hometown. Having lived here since I was seven, I suppose that makes me a naturalized southerner. It's easy to flourish in such a wonderfully warm and welcome community. Growing up on the Grand Strand, it was only natural for me to find a career in the vacation industry. I spent summers during high school and college years working in various shops and restaurants along the beach, and had the pleasure of meeting people from all over the world. The delight they showed being able to enjoy a week or more in my hometown helped me to realize just what a blessing it truly is to live here. I am a licensed real estate agent and have been at Thomas Beach Vacations for more than seven years. As a member of the Homeowner Services Department, my purpose is to help our homeowners achieve their personal goals for their vacation rental home or condominium. If their vacation rental is purely for investment, we'll plan to maximize the return through smart spending to provide what today's vacationing family wants. If the owner's intent is to help defray the cost of owning the family vacation home through seasonal rentals, we'll plan for that with competitive rates and personally overseeing the family's second home. In addition to work, I love spending time with my husband and three daughters. We attend Our Lady Star of the Sea church and I am very active with the Home School Association at Holy Trinity Catholic School, having served two consecutive terms on the HSA Board. I enjoy great novels, movie marathons, baking, and picnics with my family. I work out of our Cherry Grove office at 625 Sea Mountain Highway and can be reached at extension 3065. Direct Desk Telephone: (843) 273-3065 Toll-Free: (866) 714-1666, extension 3065 Email:Jacqueline.Ramsey@ThomasRealEstate.com

April Spivey

Owner Services Assistant

I am local to our area; love the beach and the year-round comfortable weather. After working for ten years as a real estate administrative assistant, I felt that vacation rentals would be a good fit for me. I'm a licensed real estate agent with extensive customer service skills and experience. My background and knowledge of the local real estate market enables me to understand and suggest what can make a rental property even more attractive to vacationing guests. Also, it is beneficial knowing the guidelines for keeping properties "real estate friendly" for potential resale. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my husband and family at the lake. I work out of our Cherry Grove office at 625 Sea Mountain Highway and can be reached at extension 3063. Direct Desk Telephone: (843) 273-3063 Toll-Free: (866) 714-1666, extension 3063 Email:April.Spivey@ThomasRealEstate.com
