About YourLakeVacation.com - Lake of the Ozarks Vacation Rentals
Al Elam Property Management was established in 1986 as a property managment and vacation rental company. Since then we have helped thousands of guests with their vacation planning. In fact we have served more than 10,000 guests staying a total of more than 40,000 nights in the past 25 years.
Al Elam Real Estate was founded as a full service real estate company in 1940′s by Mr. Albert Elam. Mr. Elam was serving in the U.S. Navy when he was contacted by developer Cyrus Willmore. Mr. Willmore had just purchased 42,000 acres from the Union Electric Company and was looking for a real estate agent to help him sell and develop the area. The “useless” hill tops that residents had made UE purchase along with the “good” flat land and valleys became the shoreline and million dollar properties that you see today.
Al went on to be one of the most successful real estate agents in Missouri history. He helped found the local real estate board and also served as President of the Missour Board of Realtors.
After Mr. Elam retired and sold the company it was purchased by Tim Tabor who is still a part owner of what is now Reece & Nichols, Al Elam Real Estate. In 1986 Mr. Tabor opened the property management division to manage long term and vacation rental properties. In 2008 Russell Burdette and his family purchased Al Elam Property Management after managing the company for the previous few years.
Today Al Elam Property Management is a locally owned, family business dedicated to providing visitors an exceptional vacation experience in one of the many private homes or condos that the company manages. Our hope is that we will be able to serve you and your family as well as we would our own family. We strive to carry on the tradition that was started by Mr. Elam more than sixty years ago!
