Meet Our Team
We are the largest full-service property management company located in the heart of Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach and Yulee. Founded in 2003 by Dee Chaplin and Hugh Williams, owners of Prudential Chaplin Williams Realty, as a wholly owned company dedicated to only professional property management. Our services include everything from marketing vacant properties, collecting rents, managing all bookkeeping, to handling day to day maintenance. What differentiates us from our competition is that we are truly immersed in the business of professional property management and use the very best management tools and latest technology available to achieve your goals. Tenants can pay their rent on line each month and owners can choose to have their rental proceeds directly deposited into their bank accounts electronically both at no extra charge.
Chaplin Williams Rentals exclusively handles Residential Property Management. Our focus is on maintaining investment properties and on advising our clients on how to maximize their cash flow, or in some cases, minimizing their negative cash flow. We believe that thorough a meticulous tenant screening process for potential tenants and strictly enforcing all rules and regulations, lease agreements terms and addendums, are essential to achieving these goals.
Our staff offers professional and proactive management services. We strive at being at the forefront of the Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach, Yulee, Callahan and North Jacksonville housing and rental market industry.
