Industry Leader in Real Estate, Vacation Rentals, Property Management & Hospitality Laundry Services

For several years prior to its incorporation, the founders of Meyer Real Estate exclusively developed and sold properties owned by George C. Meyer. In 1967 Meyer Real Estate was incorporated and soon became a leader in the dramatic transition of the Gulf Coast from a tiny village of beach cottages to a major resort destination. Through its history, Meyer has been a respected, leading real estate company in southern Alabama and northwest Florida. During these decades, Meyer Real Estate--through real estate sales, vacation rentals and property management--has cultivated numerous relationships and earned the trust of both the area residents and vacationers.

SH Enterprises, Inc. is now the umbrella company for not only Meyer Real Estate, which now operates as Century 21 Meyer Real Estate, but also Meyer Vacation Rentals, Meyer Services, Starr Textile Services and Starr Textile Services of Louisiana.

Sheila Hodges is owner and chairman of the board of SH Enterprises, Inc., Tom Gober is the president and CEO, and Michelle Nelson is vice-chairman. The facilities include a 36,000-square-foot corporate headquarters in Gulf Shores designed to enhance STAR Treatment. STAR Treatment is the SH Enterprises companies’ exclusive guarantee that you will always receive Service, Trust, Accessibility and Results from everyone in all of the organizations. This state-of-the-art headquarters provides evidence of the commitment to remain sensitive to the natural surroundings and protect the mature oaks already established on the property.

Other facilities include branch offices in Fort Morgan and Perdido Key (Florida) that are strategically positioned to accommodate the rapid area development as well as customer convenience. A large Meyer Services building is located in the Foley (Alabama) Industrial Park to house the company functions of housekeeping and maintenance and a satellite office north of the island in Gulf Shores. Starr Textile Services is also in the Foley Industrial Park and houses its state-of-the-art equipment and environmentally friendly operations at a 30,000-square-foot facility.
