Vacation Home Property Management Services



Have A Look At What Our Homeowners Have To Say

You've come to the right place! "We've never seen a rental history we couldn't improve upon" is what our owner, Gail Bucker, will tell you, and it's true. See below what our happy clients have to say about how Beach Pros Realty has been able to increase their return while minimizing their expenses and make their experience with property management a breeze.  Gail and Tom live on the oceanfront in Sandbridge and have owned 8 homes in the neighborhood since 1989. Unlike the employees you may be  dealing with at one of the bigger companies,  Gail and Tom have actually owned rental homes in Sandbridge and they know first-hand what it feels like to be a homeowner working with a property management firm. That experience gives them a unique perspective.    
 
In early 2010, while assembling the Beach Pros Realty business model, one of the first changes Gail Bucker wanted to make was to stop charging the home owner for linen rentals.  “Those bills are astronomical and it seemed to be going up every year!”  So, we not only provide the linens at no charge to the homeowner we also make the beds for free.  “Nobody wants to make beds while they are on vacation!”  These two significant changes to the norm in property management are just  a couple of unique differences with Beach Pros Realty unless our competitors have decided, by the time you read this, to change their policy.  Be aware that if they are saying they have free linens by adding the cost into your weekly rate and then taking it back out…that means you are still paying for the linens. Any increase in the rate should be coming to YOU the homeowner.   So an FYI!  There have been some false claims out there so keep an eye on  your bottom line.   We are the company among the competition who made Free Linens to homeowners happen and we’re glad we can do it!  We know how we would like to have been treated as homeowners and that is how we conduct our business…by the Golden Rule. 
 
At Beach Pros Realty, it is a team effort and we work hand in hand with each of our owners to ensure that their home is cared for and maintained properly and in a way that ensures happy guests who return year after year.   See those real letters from real clients, below!

Since that time the Buckers' have owned 8 homes, 6 of which were rental homes.
