We purchased 5224 Atlantic View in December of 2011 and have made dramatic improvements to this home since then. This is an ongoing effort and to date we have spent over $23,000. We visit our home for at least one week every three months to personally review, maintain and upgrade. We feel this is extremely important. We've also switched management companies in order to bring you the best value and most professional services available in the area. Please contact us at any time with your opinions or suggestions.

WE ARE "HANDS ON"
Every three months, we plan a weekly stay in our home for the express purpose of using it as one of our tenants would use it. This reveals to us a variety of issues and problems that need to be resolved. We then make a punch-list and address them!
We also meet with our contracted maintenance people at this time (Powell Heating and Air Conditioning, Curtis Pest Control, Thurston Plumbing, Thibault Electric, landscaper, etc.) to make sure everything is well-maintained and functioning properly. Necessary repairs are made and upgrades are performed.
Finally, we meet with our Property Management Company to review any household issues (cleaning, kitchen items, household supplies, linens, etc). All of the above enhances your vacation experience and makes sure your vacation will be hassle-free and pleasurable.
