What People Have To Say

I’ve considered us owners at Island Towers to be incredibly fortunate to have RAL oversee the resort’s day to day business. Many times I’ve engaged in conversations with passersby on the beach who remarked how well run they heard our resort is. All you need to do is look at the property both from a distance and up close to see that these impressions are accurate.


Robert Sofalvi

Owner Island Towers Resort

It has been an absolute pleasure working with the RAL Resort Property Management family throughout the years. They are knowledgeable and efficient, making the closing process for their transactions a breeze for their customers. We plan to see many years of continued success and growth for this local family business!

Marla Sabin

As an owner and former board member of my condominium association, I would highly recommend RAL. I have found them to be knowledgeable, well organized and attentive. During the time they have worked with us they have been very responsive to our needs and concerns. The openness and warmth with which they handle themselves make it a pleasure to work with them.

Patricia Walton

Myerlee Golfside East Condominium Association

I am currently the Board President of the Island Towers Resort Condominium Association and I’ve worked very closely with RAL Resort Property Management in relation to their management of our resort during the past 5 years. RAL’s management of Island Towers has been positive, effective and beneficial for our association in many ways. RAL has a good understanding of the proper relationship between board governance and management practices, effectively implements board decisions and maintains a very positive, cooperative relationship with our board. They have provided our resort with an outstanding on-site staff and have handled personnel changes and transitions very effectively and successfully. RAL has facilitated and managed several major renovation projects at Island Towers that have resulted in significant improvements to our facilities and their maintenance practices have been effective in keeping the quality of our resort at a high level. Our overall experience with RAL has been quite positive.
