We are a boutique style management firm that provides personalized attention to your property while maximizing its income-producing potential. Our business model is simple: We provide personalized attention to our owners needs while keeping a hands on approach to every aspect of our vacation rental management firm. We find that it is very difficult for owners to dedicate the amount of time necessary to effectively advertise and oversee the rentals. We also find that due to the lack of advertising and time, owners end up having to cut their rates. In many cases, the owners end up frustrated that they spent a ton of their spare time on the rentals while their bottom line...

Condo prices at Gulf may be leveling off Auctions, distress sales, buyers with cash chipping away at bloated inventory at Gulf, agents say Sunday, August 02, 2009 By KATHY JUMPER Real Estate Editor Condominium prices may be leveling off as auctions, distress sales and buyers with cash are reducing some of the inventory at the Gulf, according to agents. The recent auction sale of 31 units at Escapes! To The Shores in Orange Beach, which netted more than $12 million, "makes a statement of what our rock-bottom prices are right now," said Tina Maynard of RealtySouth in Orange Beach. The two- and three-bedroom units sold for under $200 per square foot, which included the 10-percent buyer's premium. That's less than half what comparable properties brought in the hot market just before 2004's ...

Orange Beach approves design for Gulf-front resort hotel Thursday, July 23, 2009 By RYAN DEZEMBER Staff Reporter ORANGE BEACH - Developer K.C. Chiang's designs for a high-rise Gulf-front hotel and convention center won unanimous approval from the Orange Beach City Council, but now the panel must decide if it wants to grant the developer a tax abatement worth tens of millions of dollars to see the project come to fruition. During a two-hour public hearing Tuesday night that preceded the council's vote on the designs, Chiang said that he and his partners - Chicago-based Centrum Properties and the Wyndham Hotel chain - need Orange Beach to share millions of dollars of revenue generated at the resort to secure their $160 million financing package.

It is a hot summer day in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. I love living here. Recently, I was in New York City. It was cold and rainy. I like it here more even with all the issues of living along the coast. There is something very special and beautiful about this area. I sit on my dock and watch the birds and the river grass. I live on a very nice isolated bayou. I think one of our problems selling real estate here is always selling the investment. The most important issue is the beauty of our area. Investments come and go however this is one of the most beautiful spots in the world.

Gulf Shores Condos and Orange Beach Condos in foreclosure are selling quick. I have had some luck getting great deals but these condos go quick. With this being a second home market we are not seeing the number of foreclosures you would see in metro areas so when they hit you need to be ready to sign. I have had properties we had written offers on the same day the unit was posted and it had already had multiple offers comming in. Well what do you expect Orange Beacch and Gulf Shores I think are the best places to be on the gulf coast. We can do the shopping for you and would be happy to send information.  Sea you soon!
