1. Re: advice on realty???

I would have no qualms at all renting from Treasure Realty.

Here's the deal. Treasure manages hundreds of rental homes and condos. Out of those there will be a few gripes each season, some of them very justified and some of them not. There are many other real estate companies that manage rentals too but they don't handle nearly as many as Treasure. They get a few gripes too. In the end, I think if you look at the ratio of complaints to rentals you'll see they are pretty much all even.

As for the 3000 block of Island Drive, it's a nice area that is about 10 minutes to downtown Surf City and 10 minutes to the Food Lion shopping plaza in Sneads Ferry. The last time I was there the beach looked really nice. The area isn't very crowded and is easily accessible, especially if you use the high rise bridge in North Topsail Beach instead of the swing bridge in Surf City on weekends.

If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you. Are there good restaurants close to the 3000 block? any within walking distances? bike trails? any putt putt or go carts close just to go for one or two times?

Unfortunately, there's not any restaurants or putt putt or such within walking distance of the 3000 block but it's just a short drive (about 10 minutes) to either Sneads Ferry or Surf City to reach any of those type places.

There is a bike lane in the area but it's just a share the road type deal on the shoulder of the highway.
