Whether you are looking to purchase a vacation home, long-term rental investment property or a home to call “home sweet home,” or need property management services, now is the time to “Switch to Southern,” says Owner Mike Shoults.



Southern Management Group — whose family of businesses includes Southern Vacation Rentals, RE/MAX Southern Realty, Southern Residential Leasing and Southern Association Management — has been locally owned and operated since 1995.



Thanks to a caring and seasoned staff and the company’s commitment to industry-leading technology, Southern’s family of property owners and guests enjoy all the benefits of a large company as well as the personal service of a small company.



“Our objective has always been to provide the level of personal care that owners come to expect from a local, family-owned business, while delivering maximum revenue through advanced systems and tools,” says Shoults.



Quickly becoming the industry leader in property management along the Gulf Coast, Southern has reached record-breaking numbers this year, currently representing more than 900 vacation rentals, 800 long-term rentals, 40 homeowner associations and 600 real estate transactions.



Southern’s expansion has been tremendous for each of its local offices — including Orange Beach, Perdido Key, Pensacola Beach, Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Scenic 30A, Panama City Beach and the Forgotten Coast — and the company is positioned to continue to grow by bringing new property owners onto its program in 2014.



Further promoting enhanced teamwork and commitment to growth, Southern Management Group will bring all of its businesses under one roof at the start of the new year when RE/MAX Southern and Southern Residential Leasing join Southern Vacation Rentals and Southern Association Management at the recently renovated Destin office on Opa-Locka Lane.



“The collaboration of our different companies has proven successful and bringing us together will strengthen our efforts to be the go-to company along the coast,” said Owner Kevin Veach.

HOW SOUTHERN VACATION RENTALS STANDS OUT



Aggressive marketing and yield management: Southern’s sales and marketing team constantly researches market trends to meet demand, increase occupancy and yield the most optimal rental rates for both owners and guests.



No-cost start-up services: At zero cost to owners or guests, Southern provides complimentary keyless lock installation, initial property linens and a maintenance service plan with on-staff technicians.



State-of-the-art technology:Linens are treated with the best possible care, as each goes through Southern’s newly equipped, state of the art commercial laundry facility that uses the state regulated temperatures and chemicals. Southern also uses an aggressive lead management system to ensure all inquiring guests are touched by the reservations team within minutes of requesting a quote, keeping guests happy and properties rented.



Guest communication and perks: The GoSouthern App is Southern’s primary means of communication with guests and provides a one-stop-shop for property information, details about a stay and added value such as free and discounted attractions and activities through the Southern Perks program.
