About The Prickett's
My name is Tamala Prickett and I am the owner of Prickett Properties LLC along with my husband, Daniel. Daniel and I have an interesting story as to how we began managing vacation rental properties along the Gulf Coast.
Daniel and I have always LOVED the beach and decided to purchase our first vacation property in 2001. Like most everyone else, we hired one of the large local property management companies. After being shuffled around one corporate employee to the next, we were left feeling like no one cared about our property or the return on our investment. We then switched gears and hired a very small local property manager. Quickly we discovered that the small company offered a personal touch but did not have the web presence to keep our property full in order to produce the gross rentals we so desparately needed as VERY young second home owners :)
We decided to take what was missing from each of these companies to take a shot at renting our own property. We learned quickly that it is a lot more difficult than it sounds! I learned quickly that adequately marketing and managing a property, let alone several, is much more than a part-time job.
Life began to lead me in a different direction as we added children to our family and I eventually quit my full time position as a practicing attorney. With more times on my hand at home, I submersed myself with internet marketing information. As a result, Daniel and I became so successful in renting our own property that friends and real estate clients started to ask if we would rent theirs out as well.
We have slowly grown our company, property by property, and have created some long lasting owner and guest relationships along the way.
We are very excited about what the future holds and would love consult with you about adding your vacation rental property to our personalized program.
