Management Team

Alison Hayes – Owner Communication Manager

Hi, I’m Alison! My passion is serving those in the community around me, and with over ten years of experience in the hospitality industry, property management is the perfect fit. My fiancé, Noah, and I moved back to our hometown of St. Simons in the summer of 2021, and have not regretted it since! In our free time, you can find us hanging out with our pups, Zeus and Layla. We love spending time at the beach, traveling, and just being outdoors. You can also often find me curled up with a great mystery/thriller novel!

Brittany O’Neil – Reservations/Marketing Manager

Hi, I’m Brittany! Originally from Cincinnati, OH, I happily made St. Simons Island home after my now husband introduced me to this very special place in 2016. My 15+ years in marketing, management and rental properties coupled with my passion for relationships, communication and attention to detail allows me to really hone in on a customer’s experience! I’m excited to find our guests and tenants a property that checks off all the boxes for them. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my husband, Braxten and spending time at the beach with our two pups, Ryder and Chesney. We are extremely excited and blessed to take on our newest adventure in parenthood soon, as we are expecting our first little beach bum in October!

Brysen O’Neil – Maintenance Manager

 Hi, I’m Brysen! Bringing 10+ years of experience to the table, I am Covenant’s handyman. Coming to St. Simons for vacation has been a special family tradition since I was born, and I am now proud to call the island home with my girlfriend, Jess! When I’m not busy renovating or tackling maintenance issues, I enjoy restoring old cars – a lifelong passion of mine. I am also a country musician, and you can often catch me playing gigs on the island!

Amanda O’Neil – Guest/Tenant Communications Manager

Hi, I’m Amanda! With ten years of experience in managing a digital media department and in relationship management, I bring those skills to my true passion of property management. Living locally on Saint Simons, with my husband, Gray, and our sweet pup, Rainier, we enjoy everything island life has to offer. You can find us paddle boarding, traveling or relaxing on the beach!

Lorena Alverez – Housekeeping Manager

Hi, I’m Lorena! I am a lover of cleanliness and organization. After my mother, Ester and my dad, Bady spent 16 years in the cleaning industry, I learned from them all the techniques I needed to open Atlanticview Cleaning Services with my husband, Hector. We truly love every property we clean, and we make sure that guest and owner satisfaction is always our top priority. Now, we have the privilege of being the only cleaning company that takes care of all Covenant properties. As Covenant’s housekeeping manager, I welcome you to the Golden Isles!

Braxten O’Neil – Owner / CEO

Hi, I’m Braxten! A little bit about me. I spent the last five years as Chief Operating Officer of a fast-growing marketing organization. With 15+ years in the service industry, I humbly bring extensive business operations knowledge through the lens of customer experience. I’ve owned and rented properties locally for the past five years, sparking my decision to jump into my real passion – property management.

In my spare time, you can catch me spending time with my wife Brittany, two dogs, Ryder and Chesney, fishing, camping, traveling, shooting, and of course hanging out at the beach.

Dwayne Davis – Owner / COO

Hi, I’m Dwayne! After spending seven years in the United States Air Force, I moved to Saint Simons Island, where I worked in the medical sales field for ten years. Like Braxten, I also come into property management through the lens of homeowners – truly understanding their needs and desires

My wife, Mary Ellen, along with our two dogs, Gus and Woodrow, love traveling, spending time at the beach, and enjoying everything beautiful Saint Simons Island has to offer.

We love connecting with new people and sharing the beauty of the Golden Isles with our guests. We look forward to talking with you soon!
