McArthur Properties strives to provide our tenants and their patrons with first class and well kept office and retail environments.  We pride ourselves in being owner-operators of our entire portfolio which we believe shows in the manner in which we maintain our assets.  Utilizing a very ‘hands-on’ approach, our seasoned property management and leasing staff provide outstanding customer relations through teamwork and prompt responsiveness to all of our tenants’ needs.  It is the combination of this ownership and management philosophy that affords us a competitive advantage in today’s dynamic real estate market.


Our Grandfather, J.D. McArthur, moved to Goldsboro in the early 1920’s and formed McArthur Lumber Company.  Our Father, P.H. McArthur, II, started McArthur Rentals in 1950, building houses and apartments to sell and rent.  He also bought warehouses to rent and had a large commercial dairy and farming operation.  McArthur Rentals has evolved into McArthur Properties and is now owned by Helen McArthur Jernigan and her husband Randall and Pat McArthur, III and his wife Michelle.  We feel blessed to be able to continue this legacy of McArthur Properties for years to come.
