10 Pillars of An Exceptional Homeowner Experience

Built over almost half a century working with thousands of homeowners and millions of guests, here’s what we believe are the hallmarks of a truly remarkable ownership experience.

Across market cycles, outcomes, and shifting economics, the foundation of communication and responsiveness are simply pivotal in any successful business relationship, especially in a dynamic rental management program. Our homeowner team is available seven days a week, offering support in-person, over the phone, via text, or email. Homeowners gain access to exclusive insight, sourced from first-party data, via a secure portal built by our in-house development team, streamlining access to your crucial investment property information.

We make navigating the vacation planning process effortless for your guests through Twiddy & Company's comprehensive website and outstanding personal hospitality. Prospective and repeat guests can explore homes based on preferences, view photos and videos, check rates and availability, and access area maps. Our user-friendly interface provides in-depth property descriptions, amenities, and floor plans. The website also features valuable resources, including local guides, pre-arrival reminders, and interactive elements like live webcams. In each step of their search, our full-time local team in Duck and Corolla are available to them, in their chosen medium, in seconds.

The vacation rental market is more competitive than ever. It is crucial that you can compete in terms of agile marketing and focused revenue management. At Twiddy & Company, our in-house marketing experts help increase visibility and keep your home booked at top dollar rates based on proprietary data sets that go back decades. We achieve this by constantly monitoring market trends, leveraging data-driven insights to maximize your rental income. In practice, through things like strategic search engine optimization, generative pay-per-click campaigns, predictive email marketing, and accurate statistical analysis, we employ cutting-edge marketing and probability techniques to enhance vacation home rentals in a way simply not available anywhere else in America.

We’ve learned, over time, that it’s not enough to think about a homeowner. Differentiation means that we think like a homeowner, across the spectrum of responsibility and investment, balancing returns against risk, all with an eye toward compounding returns over time. That’s local asset management done well, and together our team has over a millennia of experience on the ground perfecting it all by listening to you, understanding your values and beliefs, and putting them into action.

At Twiddy & Company, we're committed to delivering tangible results, and our primary objective is to find the perfect pricing structure for your home. Our relentless pursuit is to maximize your rental income potential through time-tested revenue strategies based on our “3P” model of pricing, presentation, and positioning. Our team of pricing experts and revenue strategists have immediate access to a wide range of market trends and in turn form the agile adaptability of our pricing philosophy. We meticulously populate your calendar with bookings at the most competitive rates, and as needed, we dynamically adjust rates to secure the highest number of bookings for your investment.

Twiddy & Company, as a brand, is known far and wide across the East Coast of the United States–chances are you know quite a few friends and colleagues who have stayed with us in some cases since they were children themselves. Those relationships are key in making sure we’re listening closely to your guest experience and can make smart adjustments to deliver exactly what they’re looking for, in their chosen channel, in their chosen time, based on what they’ve told us they value in their experience. It’s tough to underestimate this ability over the long-term; while one can buy many things, a reputation is only earned the hard way over time.

One pronounced difference that Twiddy & Company offers is our intentional commitment to service logistics in and around the Northern Outer Banks. Simply put, no other firm maintains the capability to deliver a prompt and effective service response to you and your guests. Whether it’s reliable cleaning, security inspections, wide arrays of maintenance options, or simply technical expertise it’s all around the corner. See for yourself the next time you’re in the area; you’ll see those clean blue trucks driven by friendly professionals on your road frequently acting at the behest of homeowners and their guests.

It’s no longer enough to simply do business and do nothing else. At Twiddy & Company, it never has been. We’ve made it a founding hallmark to make sure that as we grow as a business, we invest back into the communities that we share with our visitors. Whether that’s simply incomparable office campus locations in both Duck and Corolla, extraordinary efforts over time at historic preservation, capital commitments in affordable housing, or even our commitment to the quality of our own staff experience, we work to set an example that we hope guides us in our next fifty years. By comparison, we’re locally owned, locally operated, and locally rooted–we live it. We don’t, by comparison, outsource it.

One of the first inevitable questions in your search, and rightly so, is one of cost; after all, it was Warren Buffet himself that said both emotions and expenses were the enemy of equity. As you consider different philosophies around commissions and fees, experience teaches that these things should, over time, represent two things broadly–first, an alignment with your best interest and second they should represent a differentiated capability you’ve purchased in the market.

While it can be tempting to choose the cheapest option, and that’s a great decision in many cases, experience also teaches that, over time, you get what you pay for in terms of quality, consistency, and commitment. Start at your values as an investor and your beliefs in the market; then choose the philosophy that most closely aligns with your own.

Twiddy & Company’s extraordinary team is compensated based on a percentage of rents, aligning our interests with yours–we hang our hat, intentionally, on our fiduciary responsibility to you. Motivated to maximize rental potential, our transparent commission and fee structure covers rental program management, marketing, accounting, and housekeeping.

At Twiddy & Company, we go beyond traditional rental management to offer a comprehensive approach focused on optimizing your investment. On the foundation of a personal relationship with you, we combine your guest experience with operational service delivery, strategic asset management, rock solid risk management and reliable accounting, with simply great people on the ground in Duck and Corolla. Our intent, in building a business that way, is to make your experience simply one you’ll never regret. Our hope, over time, is that your conclusion upon reaching the end of your Outer Banks journey is that you’ll look in the mirror and simply say that you loved every step of the way. That’s our intent, and that’s a great reason to choose Twiddy & Company.
