Gulf Coast manages five properties for me. They have been wonderful. They take care of issues, communicate regularly, consult me when they need to and just handle smaller matters, and they provide excellent records for tax purposes, etc. I couldn't be more satisfied with their services. I'd like to give a special call-out to Maria Palatino, who deals with all things financial and special handles a slightly complex monthly interaction with the trust company that "holds" several of my rentals. Maria is responsive and helpful!

I started working with this company about 2 1/2 months ago for a move across country. Laurie Rastovski was my leasing agent. She really made everything very simple for me, the whole process was stress free 100% with the application. She was great to work with. I moved into the property a few days ago and I am very pleased! This place is perfect for me and it was clean and move in ready! I like this company and would recommend!Thank you for taking care of us :)

We found Gulf Coast when we realized that we wouldn't move into our retirement home as soon as planned. We were impressed with the available services and assurances, and the energy of the people who would, effectively, "sell" our home by the year.We were caught off-guard by the costs associated with start up.However, while not inexpensive, being remote landlords makes the cost of Gulf Coast a good choice for us. They source and vet tenants, handle money, and can do some (limited) repair work.What has made Gulf Coast a value-add has actually been our rental manager, Scott Bodager. Scott is a true professional, knows and understands the rental business, and has clearly accepted the role of landlord advocate for us. Our tenant has posed more than a few challenges for us. Through it all, Scott has not just been our guide and teacher, but also been our eyes and voice, helping identify limits, and resolving issues with the least disruption, allowing us to be more hand off. If Scott is representative of Gulf Coast rental managers, life as a landlord should be easier and less risky than you may expect.
