Testimonials from Owners

Owner of Baywatch G-6
To: Property Owners
I am the owner of Baywatch Condo unit # G-6, located on Pensacola Beach, Fl. I've tried in the past, to rent the unit myself, with little or no success. I've had companies in the past, who really didn't care if the unit got rented, if it got "trashed", or even if it got cleaned. Seems like all I did was complain, with good reason. Believe me, I've fired a lot of them. I have been very discouraged, to the point of thinking I'd just sell it.
Then I was given a big blessing in the form of Steve Picker, owner of Surfside Property Management.
Steve has become my friend over the past few years. He has earned my respect through his professional & personal business management. He truly "works for his clients" & takes great pride in what he does.. Steve is honest & true to his word. He does not play games. If there's a problem, large or small, he puts forth such an effort, that I feel like he's "treating my property like it's his". What an incredible compliment for me to be able to give Steve. He is always available & has set-up a very nice website, with beautiful pictures of his rentals.
Steve really enjoys his work and it shows because he's excellent at it!!!! I would recommend any owners who need to live "without headaches" to give Steve a call. You need him. Pensacola Beach needs him. He will rent your unit. If I can answer any questions please feel free to call me. Steve can provide you with my number.

Villas on the Gulf, Unit L-4
We started with Surfside Properties in April, 2010. As time has gone by, we have become more and more satisfied with them.
2010 was the year of the BP oil spill. Not many people vacationed on Pensacola Beach that year. We had several cancellations. Surfside stepped in and assisted us in filing a claim for our lost of rentals, for which we did receive monies back.
2012 was our third summer with them, and our condo was rented most of the summer.
Things we really are pleased with:
When we call or email Steve Picker, he gets back to us quickly.
Any problem we have is taken care of in a reasonable time frame. (We do not live near. We live near St. Louis.)
Steve keeps us informed as to how things are that concern our property.
He is starting a new linen program in 2013, which we think will be easier for him and the owners.
When we arrive for a personal stay, the condo has always been cleaned very well.
The thing we especially like is that he meets each quest at the condo with the keys and welcomes them. That way he can see if they have a pet (which we do not allow) or have more people than the condo accommodates. This happened to us when we were with an agent that the keys were picked up at the office. They just didn’t know.
Overall 2012 has been great, and Surfside Properties continues to try to rent our place during the off season.
We give Steve Picker and Surfside 5 *****.
