What Makes A Successful Vacation Rental Property Manager?

The team at Newman-Dailey Resort Properties has been managing vacation rentals for more than 30 years. In this time, the leadership team has learned what qualities make a great property manager and what an owner should look for when hiring a property management company. We’ve read a lot of industry articles and blogs, but a blog we recently read by really grabbed our attention and had us nodding “yes” as to what really makes a property manager successful. Here’s their list and we’ve highlighted how Newman-Dailey measures up:  

They’re a “People Person”

Above anything else, your property manager has to be a great communicator and “really” enjoy people and building relationships.  

How Newman-Dailey measures up: At Newman-Dailey, our team of professional property managers enjoy serving our guests and owners. From relationships with subcontractors and vendors to guest service, Newman-Dailey’s property managers truly enjoy making people happy.   

They are Knowledgeable

Your property manager should be an expert in your local area, and know your home inside out.   

How Newman-Dailey measures up: At Newman-Dailey, knowledge of the vacation rental industry and each vacation rental home goes well beyond just the property manager. Our team of property managers, inspectors, vacation specialists, and director of operations all know each home inside and out as well as live locally and know this stretch for Florida’s Emerald Coast intimately.  

They are not afraid of technology

Modern vacation rental property managers rely on technology to run their businesses more efficiently.  

How Newman-Dailey measures up: We are focused on finding the best tools and software to allow our team to do their job more effectively and efficiently. Newman-Dailey has consistently been an industry leader in adopting new technologies and tools. From keyless entry and remote controlled thermostats to our bed bug program to booking software and apps, Newman-Dailey is an early adopter, which benefits owners and guests. 

They have great marketing skills

It’s essential the property manager or agency to have good experience when it comes to marketing short-term rental properties.   

How Newman-Dailey measures up: Marketing is our strength. With 30+ years of experience in monitoring and adapting to market conditions, we know the only constant is change. As part of a constantly changing marketplace, our marketing strategies are based on research, industry trends and the latest technology, allowing us to reach our target audience effectively and affordably.   

They work as a well-oiled team

When contracting a vacation rental property manager, be sure to ask about the different departments and who runs what. You’ll want your management company team to run like clockwork. 

How Newman-Dailey measures up: Team is a core value at Newman-Dailey. We go beyond just “teamwork” to treating each other like family. Every member of the team truly cares about each other, our guests and our owners. Each person knows their role and relies on one another to ensure a successful outcome. This is why Newman-Dailey is ranked among the Top Places to Work in Florida by Florida Trend Magazine.
