Vacation Rental Owner Services
A MESSAGE FROM THE OWNERS - WHAT SETS US APART FROM OTHERS
Since the beginning, Valerie has worked full time with our property management staff to offer our owners personal service, attentiveness, and optimum revenue generation. This owner-employee partnership enables us to offer you affordable management fees and higher net income.
We have lived and worked on Perdido Key since 1982 and purchased Perdido Realty in 1994. Allan, a visionary, purchased the domain, www.perdidokey.com, and developed the first Perdido Realty website in 1995. Our office and all 175 rental units are located in Perdido Key, FL so that we can closely monitor every aspect of rental management.
Perdido Realty does not charge an initial administrative fee, linen set up or yearly linen shrinkage fee, surcharges for credit card usage, daily amenity package charges or rental cleaning charges to owners. Guests pay cleaning fees and all sales taxes. It is important for you to consider this when you calculate projected net rental income.
Perdido Realty prides itself on knowing our owners by name and listening to your needs and preferences. We promise to treat your property as our own and accomplish that through organization and attention to detail. We work diligently to provide excellent housekeeping and maintenance services. We employ our own full-time cleaning staff and do not use contract cleaning services. The result--we started with 3 condominium units in our program and have 150 units today solely from owner, realtor and personal referrals.
We apply the same philosophy to our rental guests by offering competitive rates, old-fashioned customer service, and clean, well-maintained condominium units. Guest testimonials repeatedly compliment us on our stellar service and validate that with repeat visits. Repeat customers account for 80% of bookings.
THE PERDIDO REALTY TEAM LEADERS
We have a great team of truly caring professionals. Michele Stearns, Chief Operations Officer, has been with Perdido Realty for 14 years.

We are www.perdidokey.com and maintain high site ranking on Google through search engine optimization. Our new interactive website, which is mobile and tablet friendly, and new rental software program went live in June 2016. We gain further exposure through the Beach Guide, Visit Pensacola, Visit Perdido and targeted web advertising and email marketing. We also offer Airbnb integration for added exposure at no cost to our property owners. While we aggressively market your property, Perdido Realty works hard to make sure that guests abide by all rental rules and Association regulations relating to age and number of occupants per unit, parking restrictions, common area use. We require a signed document stating our rental policies prior to check in. All guests are given a copy of your Association rules at check-in and we work closely with Association Managers when issues concerning your unit arise.
