    I know they ran a huge ad in a magazine last month with people on the dunes. :roll:

    I just checked out their site and wasn't impressed. The few home I looked at didn't even tell you where they were located. They was a brief description of the home and that was about it. I like to know which beach and which complex the home is located. I also want to know what the bedding in each bedroom is among other things. I might be picky, but if the basic information isn't on the wen page, I will not bother to look further. That's just me. A fancy company name without the information doesn't sell it for me.

    But to answer your question, I know nothing of the company; they might be the best around for all I know.

    If I'm not mistaken, they are merging with another property management company. Due to confidentiality restrictions, that's all I can say...but you might try to call them and get the details on the properties you are considering.

    They are (maybe were, based on ShallowNoles post) part of Coastal Properties, the real esate agent company.

    Not sure from what angle you are looking for experience with them, but when I was looking for a property management company I had interviewed them to see what they offered. I wasn't that impressed.

    Thanks to all -- I have decided not to use them as a property management company - -their rates are too high (18% for owner rental) and can't find any positive endorsements!
    Thanks

    I'm a big fan of VRBO and then use a property manager like Swantree Concierge to assist you in the little things.

    Is Swantree Concierge good? Can they replace a normal rental agency if you use VRBO (and other websites) exclusively? Thanks!

    Yep! They will meet the renters at the door, instead of just handing off the keys. Excellent if you have restrictions like "no dogs". They can communicate with the renters via email after they (renters) are in town. It's like having a personal assistant for your home. It's affordable and you retain total control over your rental. VRBO gets more hits on the web than most other rental sites. It's affordable and extra's like a calender are cheap as well. have you looked at www.swantree.com.....?

    I was reading Louisville Magazine last night, and Coastal Properties has a small ad - touting their places along 30-A- Rosemary, Seagrove, Bue Mountain, and Seacrest were mentioned.

    We bought through Coastal Properties of NW Florida Real Estate (not the rental division) and received superb service - - - I would hate to have people confuse the two. :sosad:
    We have no experience with the rental management end.

    Thanks to all on this thread......I posted on vacationrentals.com and VRBO.com 3 weeks ago and have 9 confirmed rentals since! Amazing....makes me wish I'd done it sooner. I think I'll stick w/BRSW this summer and look at a couple of options for next year! Thanks for the info.
