About Us

A2 Vacation Homes was founded in 2012 on Fire Island, NY. The principals of A2VH are brother and sister team, Alan Medvin and Abigail Mago. A2VH provides vacation home owners with full service rental management and vacationers with a better overall vacation experience from booking through departure. A2VH has offices in Melville, New York and Ocean Beach, NY.

Abigail Mago, Co-Founder & President

Abigail Mago is responsible for strategy, sales, and marketing, for A2 Vacation Homes. Abi has spent her entire career in the real estate industry and has been a New York State real estate licensee since the age of 18. After graduating from Dartmouth College in 2007, Abi cut her teeth in the Manhattan luxury real estate market as a Sales Associate at Brown Harris Stevens, where she serviced over $75 million worth of transactions. In 2012, Abi earned a Master’s in Real Estate Development from New York University’s Schack Institute of Real Estate, and worked as a Leasing Agent for Solow Residential while pursuing her degree. In addition to her role as President of A2, Abi is a Licensed Associate Broker at Fire Island Real Estate. Through her experience servicing vacation home buyers as a broker, Abi noticed that an increasing portion of buyers were purchasing homes with the intention of renting them out, but there were no existing rental management services available to take care of all of the work involved in running a vacation rental. A2 was founded to meet that need.

When not working, you will usually find Abi hanging out with her husband and two dogs, practicing hot yoga, or watching unhealthy amounts of home improvement television shows. Abi splits her time between her family home in Ocean Beach and her mainland residence on Long Island.

Alan Medvin, Co-Founder & CEO

Alan Medvin is the CEO of A2 Vacation Homes. Alan has had a lifelong passion for entrepreneurship and real estate. For his inaugural entrepreneurial venture Alan started the Fire Island Ice Cream Co. in Ocean Beach along with his sister and A2VH Co-Founder, Abigail. While working on building the ice cream business, Alan got his real estate license, getting an early introduction to the field.

After selling the ice cream business Alan spent 8 years working for a number of New York City based technology companies. Alan’s last role in New York was as COO of Magnify.net, a venture capital backed online video platform startup.

After his experience at Magnify, Alan decided the time was right to return to real estate, seeing opportunity in the Fire Island market and tremendous potential in the vacation rental space. Alan and Abi started out by rehabbing older homes on Fire Island and saw that there was a great opportunity to market them as vacation rentals. A2VH evolved from there, seeking to better meet the needs of renters looking for a high quality rental experience and owners seeking expert, professional management of their properties.

Alan lives with his wife on Long Island during the winter months and Ocean Beach during the summers. He enjoys boating, fishing, and, when things slow down in the wintertime, traveling internationally.
