We specialize in strategic marketing that starts with online advertising. By advertising on popular rental sites like HotPads and Trulia, we reach a large tenant pool. We also use the MLS, and more than 70 different advertising channels to ensure we get your property in front of as many tenants as possible.
Our owners also benefit from our name recognition. Gulf Coast Property Management is well-known throughout Venice, and good tenants looking for homes tend to turn to us.
Three full time leasing agents on our team are 100 percent responsible for filling vacancies. They don’t have to worry about property management duties, so they’re available to answer questions, show properties, and talk to prospective tenants. They work seven days a week, and they’ll show homes to interested tenants in the evenings and whenever it’s convenient.
Careful Tenant Screening
Our rental criteria is strict because we know the damage a bad tenant can do. We have a rigorous and consistent screening process that results in placing the best possible tenant.

We’ll conditionally approve tenants who meet our criteria as soon as they submit an application, which is evaluated by our internal team. Then, we verify everything on there, including income, employment, rental history, and credit. All supporting documentation is collected and compared to the application.
We want to fill vacancies as soon as we can, but we’re committed to a rigorous screening process. It may seem like we’re being over cautious when we ask for pay stubs or bank statements. But, we won’t compromise. Protecting your asset is our highest priority.
Tenant Move-in Process
Once we have approved a prospect, we collect advance rent and a security deposit and move forward with the lease. Our leases are prepared by an attorney and protect the landlord to the fullest extent of Florida Law.

The Florida Landlord Tenant Act is always changing, and we make sure the lease you and your tenant sign reflect all the necessary terms, conditions, addenda, and disclosures. All of our leases are prepared and reviewed by an attorney who understands property management law in Florida.
Inspecting the property before your tenant moves in is critical, and we document the condition of your home in great detail using 3D virtual tour technology to show exactly how your property looks. This attention to detail saves us from disagreements with tenants when it’s time to return security deposits.
Thorough Property Inspections
Regular rental property inspections are part of how we manage homes at Gulf Coast.

It starts with a thorough move-in inspection so we can document the condition of your property before the tenant moves in. Then, we inspect 90 days after the move-in date. This lets us know your tenant is following the terms of the lease and taking good care of your home. If we need to revisit some expectations and reinforce some responsibilities, we do it.
We also conduct a renewal inspection when your tenants decide to stay another year. We’ll inspect the property, check-in with the tenant, and get the new lease signed. If our inspection reveals any reason that the tenancy should not be extended, we’ll hold off on signing the new lease until we can determine whether we want to keep the tenant in place.
When tenants know that we can about the condition of the home and invest in its upkeep, they’ll be sure to maintain it to our high standards.
For your convenience, all inspection reports, including photos and comments are stored in your Owner Portal. You have access to this information 24/7, 365 days a year.
Comprehensive Property Maintenance
There’s no way to escape maintenance and repairs when you own a rental property.

At the turn of the 20th century, maps show that most of the roads and railroads leading into southwest Florida had bypassed the Port Charlotte area. Aside from some cattle ranches and small farming, the area was mostly uninhabited. In the 1950s, the now defunct General Development Corporation led by the Mackle brothers decided to take advantage of the Florida land boom and developed land primarily on both of Florida’s coastlines and among the areas they planned and developed was the Port Charlotte area.
Port Charlotte encompasses more than 165 miles of waterways, providing access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico and many more miles of natural shoreline bordering Charlotte Harbor and the Peace and Myakka rivers. Seven of the 21 golf courses located in Charlotte County are found in Port Charlotte. Charlotte Sports Park is home to spring training for the Tampa Bay Rays & Tippecanoe Environmental Park offers hiking trails and wildlife viewing through 380 acres of scrub and pine flat-woods.

What People Are Saying About Us
This experience has been a pleasure from day 1. All of our concerns have always been dealt with in a very timely and efficient manner. We are being kept updated on everything happening at our property without feeling like we're being spammed.
Chelsea is amazing to deal with, she replies to and acts on emails faster than I've ever experienced with anyone else on the property market. Even a Friday evening 6pm has not held her back from communicating information between our tenants and us.
I had the pleasure of working with Laurie to find our new home and have Kelly as my property manager. Everything has gone better than I could have hoped or imagined. We began very stressed trying to find a home and when we came across the house we chose, Laurie was so kind during the showing and made everything so easy after that point. Kelly has been wonderful since we started living here and been super helpful with any questions we have. We are so happy this was our first experience moving into a home!
Scott has proved to be a personal, professional and people oriented person to work with. He spent time to look over things preparing for rental and I felt included through his listening and feedback. He responds promptly and courteously to handle questions in email. In fact I feel like he takes care of everything that I would do and more. I am in process of moving and he reduced my stress level by clarifying tasks that Gulf Coast could complete. He also thinks of things to do I didn't think of and seeks my approval before acting on tasks. He is a class act. My only complaint is that he showed up extra early for initial appt. but that is better than not at all or late! Overall I highly rate him as a welcome presence on Gulf Coast staff. I already feel part of their team with dignity and respect.
I've been very happy with the service from Gulf Coast Management! Very prompt if I need something fixed in my unit. Kelly Crawford always answers my emails and has been easy to work with! Excellent service!
As a long-term Plantation rental guests, my husband and I want to thank Elaine Dexter at making our visits a fantastic experience. Everything runs smoothly when she is in charge. She goes out of her way to handle any problem or concern (be it large or small) with a sense of urgency & commitment. You can tell that she truly cares! Looking forward to seeing Elaine in November, because I know that our visit will be a memorable one. We know we will be in good hands with no worries at all.
